I stayed here for business meetings. Everything was very nice. Check in was easy and very friendly. The rooms were huge and so comfortable, bathroom was gorgeous. Outside area great for gathering of friends for relaxation. Casino was available, I'm not much of a gambler, so can't vouch too much, except it was a bit smoky. We enjoyed Top Golf...

Smoky and small. Almost all of the machines are 2 cent so your playing 80 cents or a dollar a time, not really penny machines.But worst of all is they pay very poorly. I must have played 20 or 30 machines and I never got any bonuses. Would not go there again.

Definition of schtick, a gimmick or comic routine. If I could give a rate lower than one dot I would. The gimmick is they call this a resort but it is NOT a resort. It is a casino with rooms for drunk people to crash. Fortunate for drunk people they will be way too intoxicated to see how dirty the...

Well, not so lucky at the casino but this is a great place to stay for business or pleasure. Just got back from the pool to get dressed for a concert here tonight. Tomorrow we are going to catch a cactus league baseball game. Last night we had a ball at adjacent Top Golf. Highly recommend for a mid-winter break...

This is a review of the Buffet only...which is not to be missed. Having just returned from a trip to Las Vegas, we were again reminded that the lunch or dinner buffet at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale Arizonais one of the best ever including those we recently visited in Las Vegas. The variety of foods offered, and not only...

Talking Stick is located on the Pima reservation. That is why gambling is possible in the state of Arizona. Hip decor, multiple conference banquet rooms, restaurant & more. The room was modern & very clean. I loved the shower, & My bed was especially comfortable. Located down the street from The Pavillions shopping center, the Salt River Fields & Old...

Pretty nice resort. It has a great spa. The only downside is that the casino allows smoking inside on the 1st level. We could not smell any smoke on the room levels and restaurants. Except for the cigarette smoke that sticks to you from walking through the 1st level. Friendly staff, really cozy rooms.

It was a very nice hotel. The king size bedroom was roomy, very clean and sleek. The bathroom was quite large with a soaker tub and separate rain shower. It was really quite pretty. The bed and pillows were super soft and comfy. The staff was super helpful and polite. Check in was a breeze as well as check out....

Resort was a decent drive to get to downtown Scottsdale- which we were aware of. Rooms were a decent size and had good selections of food. Would give a higher star rating but the smoking in the casino ruined it for us. Couldn't stand eating or being inside the resort at all.
