“Very Nice Place!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

It was a very nice hotel. The place was very clean, and my room was cleaned well, and the food was excellent in Harry's Place and the Mission Grille. Also the conference rooms were also very nice, and the snack bar that we had available to us for breakfast and snack throughout the day had many choices, lots of good food and drinks. I also used the pool and that was very well taken care of. I really have only good thingss to say about my stay.

Room Tip: The 4th floor was very quiet and I did not notice any outside noise.

I liked this hotel. Free Drink upon check in - Great location, expensive parking and somewhat stylish rooms. Looks like a converted hotel though. I'd say this is more of a business hotel than anything, but If I came back to Tempe (not sure why) I'd stay here

I had to attend a two day conference at Tempe Mission Palms, so I decided to stay the night. I wished I could have stayed longer! I had an awesome room, great food and the front desk staff were awesome.

This place is amazing. Pool and fitness on the roof, beautiful courtyard, great food and reasonably priced drinks at the bar. The location is a definite plus. Right at Mill Ave. but yet never heard a noise at night. The location is a bonus, but the hotel sets itself apart from the rest. The hotel itself is great, but the employees are beyond awesome. I was there for a business trip and I never needed to google anything. The employees were always eager to help. They drove me places and explained anywhere I wanted to walk to. I never opened a door for myself. They were so polite and always had smiles on their faces. I love this place and I will definitely be back the next time I have business in Tempe or Phoenix!

Room Tip: The pool and fitness center is 2nd floor. If you can get 2nd floor, poolside it would be the best.

Quite frequently go to Tempe to visit ASU. Mission Palms is very conveniently located and you don't need a car to get around. Given this I would recommend to stay at the hotel. The rooms are nice but some locations in the hotel can be quite noisy. If you can ask for a room high up and if possible towards the mountain side. Also, years of wear and tear does show; it can use a face lift. Breakfasts are nice and the bar is also OK.

The only reason I give it a 2 is because they removed the "resort fee" from my hotel bill. This hotel was quite awful. When I walked in, there was a musty smell that permeated the lobby. It felt like I was breathing recycled air from an airplane. My room was large, but it was in great need of an overhaul. I went to the hotel restaurant to eat dinner- there were 3 people in the restaurant- I ordered one thing on the menu. I waited for 45 minutes before a server even asked if I was doing okay. i waited another 15 minutes for my meal. I'm not a picky eater, but this was completely inedible. I took 2 bites and gave up. They offered to bring me another meal, but at this point it was 10pm... so I declined. It was clear there was MAYBE 1 person working in the kitchen.

The walls were paper thin. When I arrived in my room, I heard kids wailing next door. They didn't want to go to bed (I could hear everything going on). Then, at about 3am I was jolted out of bed by very loud noises in the hall. Next I heard security, then I heard more noises in the hall. I could not believe how thin the walls were. I am a very heavy sleeper... so this was a surprise.

The bathrooms are nothing to write home about and the beds were average.

Additionally, there was a napkin shoved into my peephole in my room. it was an unusually large peephole, but the napkin was a weird touch.

For all the folks that say this place is amazing.. I'm really truly wondering if we stayed at the same hotel. I've stayed at AMAZING places in the Phoenix area.. some of my favorite hotels are there- so I was very surprised to hear this is considered a great hotel.


The only pro is that it's an ideal location if your are visiting/working ASU.
