Overview

Lots of on-site facilities and amenities
Guests complain of cigarette smoke from casino

Situated on a Native American reservation just northeast of Scottsdale, 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 few others do not are distinctly designed rooms — complete with stylish decor, 40-inch flat-screen massive televisions and complimentary wireless Internet access — and a massive casino. The majority of Talking Stick visitors were relatively pleased with their experiences here. However, some visitors who come for a resort stay rather than a gambling expedition complain of cigarette smoke coming from the casino. And though dining is abundant here, many said the food here is nothing special.
