Check in took 45 minutes and there was no one in line. The front desk clerk was slow and not friendly. One of the worst cases of customer service I have ever had.

Room and staff of the hotel were very attentive. I would highly recommend the resort. A misunderstanding I had was that the talking stick resort would provide transportation to the arena, this info was on line, but when we got to the resort we were informed this was not the case and we would have to provide own transport (which was very expensive) to the concert for JLo. Thanks
