Complete entertainment complex with fun for all ages! Golfer? Check out the two world-class golf courses, or have some fun and head over to Topgolf. Kiddos will enjoy the Butterfly Experience or Odysea Aquarium & Dolphinarus. For a little adult fun, check out the Casino, which has a great bar with live music, and a concert venue. They also host a great pool party and DJ line-up during the summer! About a 10-minute drive straight up the 101, or a $10-$15 Uber/Lyft ride.

A casino that rivals most of those in Las Vegas. The resort is well maintained with numerous places to eat. Restaurants range from snack bar to high end. Prices are reasonable and food is excellent.

Casino, restaurants, bars, and pool parties with top DJs every weekend during the summer.


Everything was great except the casual dining area was not very good and it took a long time to get breakfast or a sandwich. Room had a great view of the pool.

A full casino and golf resort. The 6 restaurants include fine, casual, buffet and 24-hour options, and there are 2 lounges. A spa, 3 pools, a casino, a 36-hole golf course and a Native American cultural center are all on-site. The TSR Showroom features Las Vegas-style entertainment and there's 50,000 sq ft of conference space.

Oceans trail: fantastic seafood. Dance the night away or just enjoy some cocktails at the panoramic view nightclub upstairs

Don't let the word "resort" fool you: Talking Stick is also a renowned concert venue with multiple stages, and whether you're looking for big-name musicians or little indie bands with devoted followings, this is your place. Pretty much every weekend is packed with activity, from world-renowned comics to sports parties and tribute bands. This is also one of the pricier venues, but for a coveted concert, it's worth it.

Not like Las Vegas, but there is plenty of entertainment and a Vegas-style buffet that is worthwhile. Check it out!

The newest and most upscale Casino in the valley. Excellent dining, spa, nightlife and golf.

Talking Stick Resort is a taste of Vegas in Phoenix. You'll find a casino, night club and bar by the casino here. But gambling aside, you'll love the elegant and luxurious guest rooms here. I loved the bathrooms outfitted in marble. They probably could have appeared in the pages of Dwell magazine. Beds are big. And the views are spectacular. Unless you're really into hiking, the best views of the Valley are here. Head up to the restaurant to really soak it up. There's also a spa, a large pool and a pretty golf course. It's a little far from other spots in Scottsdale, but this hotel is its own destination. It wouldn't be the greatest place for families.,

My husband and I have had some good times at the Talking Stick Resort. We're not gamblers (the resort has a large casino on the main floor), but we really appreciate that Talking Stick always has some kind of fun event (concert, swimming pool parties, etc.) going on. We've come here for a staycation, enjoyed comedy shows, and danced by the pool during their popular outdoor summer concert series. We stayed in a standard room, which was nice enough, but not terribly memorable. The design is modern (lots of pop of vibrant orange everywhere), and our room had a beautiful view of the pool area and Scottsdale mountain ranges. If you need to pamper yourself, head up to the 14th floor. Their spa is really excellent. I had the desert healing massage, which features native desert herbs. My only complaint is that the resort can get quite noisy and crowded sometimes, but you can always escape by heading up to your room (if you're a hotel guest, of course). There is also a fine dining restaurant and dance club on the upper floors.

Casino and gambling are only fun when you win. Remember that. There are nice restaurants and concerts to see there as well. Just don't drink too much and end up at those black jack tables. Go to Top Golf, save some money.

who doesn't love a casino. talking stick resort a brand new enormous casino with more fine dining and nightly shows. One not to be missed.

First to Review

This is our Top Casino in Arizona located very close to The House off of The !01 East Freeway located 5 minutes from The Rental Home and 10 minutes down The !01 Freeway. This casino is located on Indian Bend Rd and Pima and has an excellent Vibe to it. Plenty of Restaurants and Bars throughout The Establishment and a nightclub on Top of The Casino. Great Poker Room, Black Jack Tables and a lot f Scottsdale's Party Goers

Just a couple years old, this casino resort is close to the Spring Training facility, Top Golf, and the Pavilions shopping! Lots of great shows too!

Awful front desk management. Person we dealt with-asst mgr....BH... was very rude. She should not be working in that capacity. Since it was Spring Break, we could not find another hotel with a vacancy. Forget what you confirm with them. They don't honor it. Very smokey place. Very tight machines.


I gave it five stars because The Orange Sky Restaurant on the top (13th) floor of the Talking Stick Resort and Casino is by far our most favorite restaurant. Spectacular food and service and outstanding sunset views from floor to ceiling windows or out on the deck (with gas heaters when required). A great place for a special evening; birthday, anniversary or....and you can play at the tables below when you are finished, for those up to a little risk.
