My daughter and I stayed here recently....this Resort could be really nice BUT: The lobby is actually a casino that allows smoking. There is so much smoke you honestly can't breathe. Being non-smokers we couldn't utilize the casino because of the lack of fresh ventilation. It's horrible! (Not to mention the slot machine choices are all large bet options, not...

Had the pleasure of spending an evening in the "Showroom" at the Talking Stick Resort. What an amazing and intimate venue. The seating was close & personal, the sound to perfection with a very casual concert atmosphere. Superb. Prior to the show, we had a beautiful meal at the "Ocean Trail". Fantastic seafood meal:) Too bad it's a smoking facility....

Clean, nice and great location. Near by everything, entertainment, work out spots, hiking etc. Great view, great service. Only reason it's not a full 5 is getting to and from your room through the casino is a bit 'smokey' NOT unbearable but for a non smoker.. UGH

We stayed over a Saturday and Sunday to see The Mavericks show. It was our first time staying in the resort. The reception staff were very nice and informative and gave us good directions for the free parking. Our room was very stylish and modern with two queen beds and a large bathroom with a bath and shower with a...

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend at this resort. The purpose of choosing the Talking Stick was to attend a concert there to see The Mavericks (awesome musicians, buy the way!) and get a little much needed sunshine. The resort is well appointed with good restaurants, comfortable quiet rooms, and excellent staff service. I can't speak to...

We were looking for a easy location for remote people to get to that was nice and not overpriced. This worked out well for quality of rooms, meeting space, breakfast on outside deck, etc.. I am not a gambler and and did not even realize we were going to a casino until I checked in. Others seemed happy with casino...

Overall this place is adequate for a casino hotel. Food at the restaurant was OK. Service was very friendly. Good place for a business gathering but I wouldn't necessarily choose it for a personal vacation unless you wanted to gamble.

Took a little getaway with the girls for a relaxing weekend. Not a gambler but the casino is very small. The staff was very nice and informative of things we asked and if they didn't know they found someone who did. We stayed from Friday thru Monday. They had djs all throughout the hotel on weekends. Pool party on Saturday...

This is a first class resort property! Our suite was absolutely wonderful, spacious, immaculate and well appointed. It overlooked the adjoining golf course. Sadly, my schedule did not allow me to play a round! Servise in every respect was top notch. We were attending a corporate event with a large number of attendees. The meals were excellent as were the...

Recently I was playing in the poker room and ordered off the menu. When the waitress brought my food, she said the order came to $10.00. I looked at the receipt and saw the cost was actually $8.47. I gave her $10.00 and said to keep the change. I paid with chips. She counted the chips and said, " the...

Management response:

Dear Valued Guest - We are terribly sorry to hear about your experience during your recent visit. We definitely do not condone that type of behavior and the waitress's actions are not a reflection of our company policy. We would like to look into this matter and would greatly appreciate it if you could assist us with providing more details....
