Um. No. Just no.

If you love having to walk 30 minutes just to get to your car from your room-come here. If you love a place where everything revolves around a poor air quality casino-come here. If you want to have a conference for your business at a hotel not resort that is overstated-come here. If you want a hotel where the do not even clean your toilet but merely straighten and give you fresh towels-stay here. If you want to dine where service is poor and the buffet is $50-come here.

staff could be much nicer and there is lots of smoking in the building.

For an expensive place the staff could be much nicer and helpful, they act like they really don't care and everything is customers problem. It is very large and lots of smoking while there are also children in the building and the casino place. It's all about making money here. But not even step stools for kids in the washroom to be able to wash their hands.. little poor. The restaurants inside the resort are very expensive, the buffet with great service but some other places lack a good service. The buffet is great tho, just gotta bring $$ with. The rooms are very nice and large, with a very large bathroom a separate bath and a large walk in shower. 4 elevators to the rooms no long waits. Large outdoor pools with beds.

Nice Place. Several levels, nice resort atmosphere. Great food & service. Plenty of gaming. Entertainment everywhere. I would recommend to out of town visitors. I am a local and it is on my favorites list.

Attended at concert at Talking Stick
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Friends offered us a chance to join them for a concert at Talking Stick Resort. We had been to the casino in the past, but never to attend a concert.

The concert was Christopher Cross and it was held in the ballroom of the resort. It was a great concert and a great venue. Only about 600 people in attendance. The acoustics were exceptional. Even with my hearing impairment I was able to enjoy the concert because of the great acoustics.

Seating was exceptional. There was a bar in the room as well as restrooms so it was very convenient for those in attendance to be comfortable.

I will return for future concerts at this venue.

Surprisingly Very Nice

We are locals and we did a staycation here with friends for their anniversary. My first thought was that the hotel rooms weren’t going to be so nice - subpar at best and that the hotel would be smokey like the casino. I was pleasantly surprised. The basic room was very nice and clean and no scent of smoke once you leave the casino to get to the elevators. I’d recommend it.

Check-in was slow and they could’ve used additional help on a weekend. The pool is ok. Nothing spectacular. If I remember correctly there is a wading pool in addition the the large pool. I think the pool could use improvements. The bar by the pool closed early as well.

Other thank that, I’d definitely recommend. Additional tidbits: There is no fee for parking and valet is complementary. The casino is not ventilated well so if you’re not a smoker it’s gonna bother you for sure. The buffet is pretty good as well.
