This was my second stay at Talking Stick while in AZ on business. It did not disappoint! I really enjoyed the accommodations and the cleanliness of the property both inside and out. There are several eateries on site, a casino, swimming pools, fire pits, indoor and outdoor seating and a golf course. The property is beautiful and the staff are...

The Talking Stick resort was an odd experience. I am not much of a casino guy, so I'm not a good judge of the casino. My wife and I really went for some pool time and some good food in town. The pool was great, but they had poolside entertainment that then required additional tickets for the Headliner DJ's, but...

I love Talking Stick Resort. Great for a quick weekend getaway. I love the slots there, something for everyone from quarter machines to high roller. Although I didnt win, I saw lots of people who did. Rooms are comfy, some with nice views. Love the buffett with plenty of crab and all you drink mimosas. Thing I wish they would...

I have a second home not far from this Property so have many occasions to visit. Before starting this review, I should say I am a Vegas regular and in my opinion there are Vegas venues and then everyone else. In the "everyone else" category, this property is much better than most. They offer good entertainment, the Casino has a...

The Talking Stick resort was one of our best experiences. From the good service at the pool, to the restaurant on top of hotel gazing at the stars. Everything there was fantastic. We can't wait to return.

This is a "Very Good" resort and it's conveniently located in Scottsdale. If you're visiting for the 1st the time, the resort is about 30 mins from the...

Stayed at Talking Stick for one night in December 2016. I booked online and agreed to the upgrade pitch they give you at the end of the booking. This was a mistake on my part.
