Fabulous 8.6 From 1,659 reviews

Talking Stick Resort, Scottsdale
Very Good8.0
Mainly a place for gamblers and golfers
Room was nice but the cigarette/cigar smoke in casino was overwhelming.

Great location, amenities, fabulous top-floor restaurant with amazing views. Close to everything. Will be back!

This is our 5th time staying there and we probably will not be going back. The check in desk was a mess and there was a huge line, maybe about 50 people checking in with only two workers. The hotel has nice rooms but we have never been able to turn on the faucet in the bathroom without getting scalded with hot water. I had to wait with the water on for about 5 minutes before it cooled down enough for me to wash my face. They have a Cantina restaurant and the food there was inedible. The bar staff was not very friendly either when we explained that our food came out cold and the cheese on top of our queso was a solid chunk of inedible mess.

The hotel itself is good but it has casino at the lobby. In order to enter or exit, one has to walk through the casino. It means- the children has to go through all the smoking and gambling scenario. The bathrooms do not have locks - strange

Great place, slow check in
Everything was excellent except for the check in. There was an extremely long line and it took about 40 minutes to get to the counter.
