Talking Stick is a Good Place to stay”

The Talking Stick resort has a lot going for it, including 5 restaurants, nice pool areas, a large parking garage, and a very good high-end restaurant with good food and an amazing view. The rooms are modern, comfortable and well designed. And the resort is located near a major highway that gives access to anywhere you want to go in Phoenix/ Scottsdale. Gambling and gaming is an added bonus if that is an activity you enjoy. In all, we liked the Talking Stick and would stay there again.

Very nice hotel resort in Arizona”

My wife and I stayed at The Talking Stick Resort for four nights. We attended a wedding in Scottsdale. The room itself was large, clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was large and had a separate shower and bath tub. The casino was always busy but the rooms are far enough away that you won't hear the noise at all. The gym was fine, I used the tread mills but they had some weights and elliptical machines. They have a Buffet which we ate at once, the food was okay. Just a typical buffet nothing special but it was fine, there was enough variety that you can find something to eat. The resort always has some entertainment around. They have live music at the bar. During our stay Brett Michael's from Poison was performing. You will need a car because of the location. It really is not near anything. But to get around in Arizona you need a vehicle anyway. If we ever come back to Arizona I would stay at the Talking Stick Resort again, we enjoyed our stay!

Exceptional”

Staff, property and amenities were great. My only complaint was that the carpet was soaked in my room as though it had just been shampooed and I had to wear shoes the entire time I was in my room doing anything. However the front desk stated that because I made my reservation through a third party website, the only thing they could do for my inconvenience was to waive the $28 resort fee on a $200/night room. We ate a very pricey dinner at Orange Sky, which was a lovely restaurant with great staff. However, for the prices, we were slightly disappointed in the food, sandy scallops underwhelming sea food, and a very tender but flavorless steak. The buffet was also sorely overpriced or should at least give you a one trip option. Again, overall, Talking Stick was a lovely weekend getaway with lots of options on site so leaving the resort isn't neccicary, which was nice. I would go again and would probably recommend it but with a couple of warnings.

Very clean”

We stayed Oct 11-13th 2020. The resort was very clean and I really liked the precautions taken. Being from Chicago, the precautions did not bother me at al (had to have a mask not- just cloth-over face and nose, temp taken upon entry and had to use hand sanitizer). Masks at all times unless sitting to eat or by pool sitting. Casino is small but nice. I’m not a gambler but my husband liked it. I was disappointed with the price being what it was and paying the resort fee and only one sit down restaurant and pool open besides the casino. The gym and spa were not open. So pretty much pool and casino, enjoy hotel room which was great, but then not much else to do especially at night. The resort is very close to everything else though so Uber rides are quick. Staff was great. Would probably revisit here when everything is open. Also wish there was a robe in the room. I would recommend a room not on the SW side because there is loud sound from something when walking on to balcony but it still was nice view.

Beautiful surroundings”

Beautiful, clean everywhere. Good entertainment. A lot to do. Buffet was good, but not worth 50.00 a person! We went to enjoy the pools. Wrong, just wrong that we had to pay 30.00 a person extra to utilize what you felt you already paid for in all your room service fees and resort fees. (Because they had a DJ playing). Pools are part of the property for all to use. Especially in AZ when it’s 108 degrees. Probably will not go back.

Had a great time at talking stick”

Moved over after dissatisfaction with place we originally booked. Booking through Agoda definitely saved us money over other sites and hotel website. We used Agoda extensively throughout SE Asia last year, but this was the first time in NA, so were initially curious to see how it would go. No problems at all . Check in was seamless. We got the basic double queen room and were very pleased with the room. Very spacious and comfortable ,BIG bathroom. We have two large suitcases and there was plenty of room to open them up without constantly tripping over them. Had an initial issue with the small fridge and maintenance was there with a replacement in 15 minutes. Stored our golf bags downstairs, and access was quick and easy. Complimentary valet was super. Ate at a couple of restaurants and food was good and reasonably priced. Only complaint would be that the casino was quite Smokey from cigarettes, but that is kind of the price you have to pay if you want to gamble. Definitely go back!

Lovely resort”

The rooms are fabulous at this resort. We enjoyed the food and the live entertainment on Friday night. There was a terrific band and a lovely Native American Indian show. Negatives to the resort are the smokiness of the casino, not paying off either, and the high priced dinner buffet. Otherwise,loved it.

Casino was a bit dated”

Nice rooms. Friendly staff. There are a lot of good things about the resort but there were also some pretty annoying things as well. You could get free coffee and soft drinks but they made it difficult. You had to go to a bartender or find a casino waitress, which seemed completely unnecessary. You pay $25 for the resort fee which includes use of the facilities (pool, hot tub, coffee and water in the room) but they only gave you two cups of coffee in your room each day. Front desk staff were not that knowledgeable; we asked if there was a shuttle to the Salt River Field and they said no. Later we found out that was not the case and were upset since taking a car there was a real pain.

Great location but a bit pricey”

Because of the events such as Spring Training Ball Games and NASCAR events, the room was a bit high priced but located in an area with tons of places to visit and things to do. The room itself is very nice but although the entry doors are set back from the hallway noise, the noisy neighbors in an adjoining room were disturbing.

Acceptable”

We paid over $200 a night, and when we checked in we were slammed with another charge of $25 resort fee and $50 for something else which was returned upon checkout. My primary complaint is that there are no complimentary shuttles to and from airport, or to Talking Stick Arena downtown. I was assured several times over the weekend that there is no connection between the two, but this resort’s ads are all over the arena. Also, the “resort” fee we were charged covered what exactly? Cabana at the pool cost $150/hour? Seriously, I will never advise anyone to stay there and will be writing my review elsewhere.

Above average”

A very expensive option for a hotel. The extremely smokie resort and lack of being able to get helpful information from the concierge made it even worse. I did read the reviews before booking but it was not really made clear how awful the smokie resort was. I was unable to use any of the facilities due to the smoke. The hotel rooms were nice but it DID NOT make up for the unhealthy environment.
