How it Ranks: Talking Stick Resort ranks #34 out of 599 Phoenix Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.

Our Take: On a Native American reservation just east of Scottsdale, the Talking Stick Resort has the essentials to compete in the Phoenix-Scottsdale tourism industry. Golf course? Check. Massive spa? Check. Pools? Check. But, what it offers that others do not are distinctly designed rooms — complete with stylish decor, massive flat-screen televisions and complimentary wireless Internet access — coupled with a 240,000-square-foot casino. The majority of Talking Stick visitors were relatively pleased with their experience here. However, some visitors who come for a resort stay rather than a gambling getaway complain of slightly lackluster customer service. If you do decide to stay here, ask for a room with a golf course view: Travelers say that the alternative city view is not as nice.
