I used to frequent this casino often. The odds do not seem very good in the high limit room and it was extremely hard to gain a status on their Player's club card. I am easily able to get to diamond or 7-stars in Vegas or the highest levels at the other local casinos. While the waitresses and casino attendants are pleasant, the valet and front desk does not seem to care about guests unless you're driving a Ferarri. You think Vegas rolls high, try north Scottsdale. And I grew up there when the Shea and Scottsdale was a 4-way stop sign. Treated so rudely by a greeter as I entered the reservations area I have not been back while I go to other casinos at least once per month. Sooory to say.

Slots are tight as a vice and be careful, max bet on one machine will be four dollars, and on a machine close by it will be fifteen and seems to be no rhyme or reason to the layout. Casino is smoky, how long will casinos cater to trash instead of making them smoke free? One would think if a casino was making so much money on their slots, the food and drinks would be reasonable, not so at talking stick, drinks are marked up 400% and the food is pricey too

Worst hotel I have EVER stayed at.  Giant pool party with a bunch of drunk and high kids.  There were syringes in the pool, half naked people - it was a mess.  The customer service was the worst I have ever experienced.  So rude and they smirked while listening to your problem.  Nothing is worse than when your upset and you have a customer service jerk smirking.  The showroom was horrendous.  The manager at the showroom was a giant jerk.  They gave us obstructed views for our $60 tickets.  His solutions was to buy us a round of drinks - so we'd be drunk enough to not care to see the show?? What an idiot!  Then he moved us right in front of a walkway where people walked in front of us the entire night.  This hotel was literally like one of those commercials where everything you think can go wrong does and more.  Save your money, don't go here.  Or if you do, don't go in the pool, you will pick up a disease.

Awful front desk management. Very rude! They should not be working with people.
Very smokey place and machines are extremely tight. You would just be depositing your money there!

Upon entering, I was struck by the lack of noticeable smoke. As I was getting my Player's Card, the employee beamed with delight and said she was happy that someone noticed. They have an improved filtration system that is supposed to be one of the best around. Still, you always get smokers sitting next to you, but I will not sit next to one voluntarily.

I really used to like this place for about the first nine months or so after they opened. The location was near the high rent district of Scottsdale-Paradise Valley--meaning upper class area and very different customers from the casino down the road where everyone looks like they are spending their welfare check. So enjoying the overall beautiful architectural design of the casino and hotel, one can imagine that the guests who stay there likewise have fat wallets since their rooms are about as much as I make in a week. Always interested in the local culture (I mean men), it would seem that one could possibly hook up with a winner here but many times, truck drivers are more fun and more real than snooty millionaires. So, rare conversations leading nowhere, and I was not able to check out the dance floor or food. Now, about the slots--I found them pretty tight at first but I found about a half dozen that I liked to play and could count on always getting a bonus round. Coming into town every couple of months, I can track the changes in the local casino scene. So I come in several months ago and all the loose machines were taken out. Apparently, the casino knows which machines are loose and don't want me to know, too. So now they are gone and just the real tight ones left. There's a few, but too few now. If you must gamble, go to the Wild Horse for a better shot at winning something. I won't be back here for a while.
