I recently visited this resort to use the golf course and casino, I did not spend the night in a room. I found the casino to be dark and there were many people smoking. There was only one BJ table with a 10.00 min., the rest were 25.00 and up. Everything (slots and tables) were so close together and it...

Went to see Trace Atkins at the talking Stick, great venue and not a bad seat in the house. Also had dinner at the Buffet, probably the best Buffet we have eaten at in Phoenix, a wide variety of food and great selections of all different foods.

Talking Stick has some very good restaurants and they are fair priced, For an evening out, the live music in the main bar is always good. Could definitely use some more table games as well as progressive slots

First, let me say that I don't gamble. If you are looking for a lucky number, I can't supply it. However, if you want tips on how to enjoy this resort, I have a few. First, book a room with a view of Camelback Mountain. It is famous and lovely in different times of day/lighting. Eat at the Walking Stick...

Room was very nice with large bath which included shower and separate bathtub. Room was quiet and the views are very nice, especially at sunset. The only issue we had was that we had two double beds, not a king. I would suggest that you request a king at the time you book as they seem limited. Restaurants in the...

The room was very, very nice. Shower and tub in the bath. Really nice view overlooking the golf course, pool and mountain views. The sunrise was spectacular. The buffet could have been better if the food was warmer. The selection was nice, just be prepared for luke warm. I enjoyed the casino, except I'm not a smoker and smoking is...

We stayed at Talking Stick Feb. 11 - 15. To make a long story short, I had researched some information and contacted the hotel. Robb was quick to get back to me and after I had brought this information to his attention, he thanked me and upgraded our room to the Tower Club Level King. It was one of the...

Talking Stick Resort is a great place to gamble or eat. I thought the dinner buffet was excellent and the desert buffet had a lot to pick from and the price was a hell of a lot cheaper than Vegas. As far as casino in the valley my opinion is this place has them all beat. Also you can't beat...

Booked the club floor for this four night stay. Have stayed on club floors all over the world. First time here. Expected a dedicated floor. Floor is not dedicated. Hours for breakfast are 7-9 am.

The only friendly staff we found was at the front desk when we checked in. This establishment gets you coming and going. The rake on the card table was terrible ($4/hand) and the drinks were even worse at $7.75 for a very weak single shot drink while playing cards. I think that is Ridiculous. And the service was terrible you...
