“Very Hot place, cold inside.”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

We also had an upgrade to a jacuzzi in the room. We only stayed 1 night, but is was really nice. Good bed, strong airco (is was outside 40C/104F). Reception was very friendly, I had a problem with my CC, and he called several times to the store to correct it.
It's was very quiet in the area, I think because of the heat. The city was very "slow". For the men, go back 3 miles traveling to Phoenix. There is a car lane, only the top brands, like ferrari, bugatti etc etc. Nice cars :)

Room Tip: You have the outside, of the hotel. If you travel early, put your car there, it's out of the hot...

This is a nice, small hotel. They upgraded us to a room with a jacuzzi tub in the room (in the room, not in the bathroom). It was a little weird, kind of Vegas-y, but nice. The room was nice and clean, and they also had a nice pool.

Stephanie, consistantly provides outstanding guest services "instantly" without the typical delays normally encountered at most hotels. 3 Palms view of the park with ducks and water is relaxing and enjoyable and makes me keep extending my stay! The granite counter, bath walls and floor give the rooms an upscale appearance. More entertainment channels would be nice, which I'm fairly certain Brian, Executive Manager "a truely dedicated professional", will ultimately install. 3 Palms has better rooms than mine, which they continue upgrading, so take that into consideration when booking. No hotel is without engineering problems from time to time and this hotel is no exception. However, they have a skilled staff who handle mechanical issues quickly. Oh, the washers and dryers are the best I have seen in any hotel. There are 3 new front desk persons who need your consideration if you check in soon. Emanuel, Hotel Mgr. and Morgan are supporting in that area daily. Trip advisor says tell the pros and cons, so I guess a con would be the frequent rate changes dependant upon occupancy levels, so keep that in mind if you plan to stay over. In conclusion, the housekeeping staff are superior!

Room Tip: The greater the distance from McDowell Rd. the lower the traffic noise which consists of a lot of si...

The 3 Palms staff exceeded my expectations during my extended stay, so I returned. Emanuel, G.M. and his staff aim to please in every possible way, which makes this hotel stand out! All the things other reviews state are true, so I decided to just talk about the friendly atmosphere here. However, they can't predict what some inconsiderate guests in adjoining rooms may do nor control their actions, the staff works hard to make your stay enjoyable!

Room Tip: Rooms with view of the park are nice.

I will be staying here again any future trips to Scottsdale. The rooms were clean and updated with a mini fridge and granite bathrooms. Although it was a small bathroom the beds were comfortable. The large unground hot tub was perfect for the cool desert nights. The location next to a Frisbee golf course and park kept a quiet feel. The pool had nice cabana area with bar and TV for parties and plenty of seating. Great place for the price.

This hotel has spectacular rooms, a nice guest lounge, and a cool lobby. Great location, close to everything and directly across from a great park. Room rates are super reasonable. Excellent customer service. Thanks so much Stephanie!

We had high expectations based on the Trip Advisor ratings, but compared to many places we have stayed this was just a bit above average. Nice location close to the park, but otherwise this is a motel and the layout means other guests can be very noisy. Good value and we were happy we stayed. Staff are very nice.
