Smoke in casino can be off-putting.

Smoking is permitted within the casino at Talking Stick Resort, something that can prove off-putting to some. Guests are required to pass through the casino to get to their accommodations, which can amplify the problem. Some guests report that the smell of smoke sometimes permeates throughout the hotel itself.

Weekend pool party too loud for some.

During the summer months the resort hosts regular pool parties on the weekend. Some guests staying at the hotel report that these parties, which feature DJs and live music, can become very loud very quickly. Those looking to enjoy a quiet and relaxing vacation may wish to keep this in mind.

Check-in can be a drawn out affair.

A number of guests report that the hotel's reception is on the small side with only a few stations. According to reports, on occasion this can lead to a prolonged wait during check-in.
