Talking Stick is a casino hotel that is not convenient to those without cars. Nothing is within walking distance. Uber, of course, is readily available. First impression: smoking is allowed throughout most of the property... overwhelmingly noticeable as soon as I entered. The pools are large and can be noisy if there is live entertainment. The area is supposed to...

Traveled here for a work conference and was NOT impressed with the service or experience. There literally was not a single day in the 4 days that I was there that my keys worked upon returning to my room. I either had to make the jaunt back to the front desk for new ones or call and wait 15 minutes...

A great place to call in and spend a few hours. I'm a fan of the slot machines, and there are certainly lots of those, along with gaming tables. A live band was playing which added to the atmosphere. The main shock for me was that smoking is allowed freely within the building in all areas. Surely those days are...

The staff at the spa were extremely friendly. The massage that my wife and I got was excellent. The spa facilities were incredible. The hotel was awesome. Grounds were well maintained. Outside bar was very nice. The supper club was amazing.

I stayed at the Talking Stick resort for a business trip. The place was alive, vibrant, filled with excellent service, beautiful people, and generous slot machines. I ate at the Blue Coyote Cafe when I first arrived. I received double service and double smiles, an excellent IPA and a fine-tasting burger. My room was wonderful, clean, with an air of...

I went to the Casino and Buffet on Saturday Feb 11. That was my second visit there since November. The crab legs and wings were awesome. The waitress was also awesome. I will go back over and over! When my sister visit here in the near future form San Fran I will be sure to bring her here,

We walked around the grounds and played a little in the Casino. The Casino is very nice, but there seems to be a cigarette smoke issue. The need better ventilation. The buffet was pretty good, but on the pricy side. But, the desert lady made us bananas foster, outstanding. This is worth a quick visit even if you aren't gamblers....

We stayed at Talking Stick for a business trip. The room was very spacious and the resort itself was beautiful. The only downsides were: - smoking in the casino, which is located in the lobby (we are smoke-free in Ohio so this was very different) - the Uber pickup zone is down two flights of stairs, so carrying my suitcase...

If you like to smoke even when you are eating....then this is the resort for you. The check in area is very small, and it's the only place you can't smoke. You have to walk through the casino to get to your room, and you nearly choke from the smoke. Every restaurant you can eat at is around the casino...
