OK…so it’s not really VEGAS…but is feels like it when you walk into this resort/casino. The old white “tent-like” casino has been replaced with a full scale resort.
Located off the 101 and Indian Bend in Scottsdale the Talking Stick Resort is a great place for vacationers and local alike.
I was there on a Wednesday and it was semi-busy…which is fine when you are there to gamble. There were plenty of open tables and slots. I am not much of a gambler, as I like a return for my money… but I did go through $20 in short order! This ROULETTE like game was super popular.
Looking for a dining experience? You can find it here. Everything from coffee shops to find dining.. And of course no casino would be complete without the ever popular buffet!
They also have a unique poker room. From their web site:
Open 24 hours
Seeking to satisfy your appetite while partaking in a lively game of poker? No problem. The Poker Room boasts table-side dining with an assortment of American and Asian dishes.
Fill up and go all in!
Join us in the Poker Room every Monday for your favorite card game and our $10 Prime Rib dinner special. 5:00pm to 11:00pm, for seated poker player”
Looking for some entertainment? This resort has that as well. Dueling pianos on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Look for Air Supply and Beatlemania LIVE in December. You can check out the entertainment schedule here.
Guest have access to a beautiful pool area with awesome mountain views, cabanas and poolside bars.
All in all it is a very nice place. One thing I will mention however, is that they do NOT have a non-smoking area for gambling and it was pretty thick with smoke. I was really surprised about this given it is a new facility and smoking is becoming less and less tolerated. I can see this being a deterrent for some people wanting to spend much time there. Given it was not real busy when I visited…I can only imagine how it is on a Saturday night.
