Recent guest reviews

We spent three nights at Tempe Mission Palms while on vacation. Lovely hotel that is well laid out, as are the rooms. Spouse is going through some treatment so while we were there, he only left the room once for breakfast at the hotels Mission Grille and to sit near the pool. However he was perfectly happy in the room, resting, reading and being able to sit in a comfortable chair near an open window, enjoying the warm air. The pool area is very nice and spacious. People were there just relaxing or doing work. Plenty of seating. A place to purchase drinks and some snacks. A changing room and restroom. We went up and just sat and enjoyed the weather. Anything we needed or wanted was nearby and easily accessible. I could easily get around, whether driving, walking or riding a bike. Also the light rail station, bus station and a GRID bike rental rack is within a block. Tempe Beach Park is only a few blocks away. A great place to just walk the many paths, rent small boats for use on the lake, rent a bike, have a little snack or just relax.

Easy check in process, all the staff were very friendly! Perfect location and close enough to near by cities!

Simply, overpriced. Complimentary valet parking was nice, as were the first faces you see at the hotel. Downhill from there. Awesome location, but nothing else about the hotel justified the price to me

Able to walk to restaurants if wanted something different than hotel, but hotel bar and restaurants had good choices and excellent food.

Loved the staff, hotel and location. Everything was within walking distance. Would recommend to friends and we would stay here again.

We come every year to visit family. However, this year, we were a bit disappointed with the hotel. The neighbors were very loud, the bathroom was dirty and hairs were found on the bed sheets. We allowed for staff to come in and clean the room but they only made the bed without changing the sheets, and they did not clean the bathroom. We like the location of the hotel, but perhaps we are going to try a different place next time.

I came into town for a funeral and the staff was so kind and caring. They set everything up for me. Scott the bartender was amazing and met more at the door after the funeral, to ask how I was and gave me a big hug,

Hotel is close to everything literally. ASU stadium, Mill Avenue, Tempe town lake. Rooms tend to be a little loud but all in all a wonderful place to stay. Pet friendly as well and the staff was very eager to say hello to “Stitch” our bulldog. I will definitely look to stay here again on my travels.

It was great ! I would stay there again .I would recommend it to everybody

Price for the room more than the listed price due unexpected high hospitality fees.

Hotel was nice. The front desk left something to be desired. When we first arrived the valet, which is included in your stay, was fantastic. The food from room service was actually quite good, but please remember that when you order the steak you ONLY get the steak. The room service staff were fantastic and I could not be more pleased with them. When we first arrived we discovered our phone didn't work, thankfully the room service staff actually ran up to our room to take our order in person. He was fantastic. The room itself was nice, though there were some stains on the chairs. The valet was nice until we had to leave more than once to go to a family gathering and when we returned the valet told us that we could not use the valet anymore. This was odd because it was part of our room fee. Speaking of fees they tack on additional fees for just about everything. Including staying in the room, eating in the room, and just calling room service.

Everything about the hotel was a welcoming experience. Most of all, the absolute quiet was wonderful. The hotel is walking distance to Mill Avenue where there are shops, bars and restaurants. Well worth the money.

The hotel is located near a university. The weekend we stayed, there was a festival going on. We can hear the loud noises coming from the bars nearby. If you don't mind the noise, this is a nice place to stay.

Beautiful property, excellent staff, had a great time. Loved the huge pool area. Restaurant was good, bartender Thomas was awesome. Could you another choice for dinner though. Very nice breakfast buffet, and the omelette maker was great!

Beautiful hotel - rooms could be cleaner - dust clumped on lights and something spilled down the bathroom door

Love this hotel, the pool is awesome. My only gripes are that when we showered in the morning they ran out of hot water. It went cold for a while (with shower turned up as hot as it would go). After a bit the heat returned. Also, there was a light bulb out. Rooms were very clean though and we'd happily stay there again at the orbitz price. Super close/ walking distance to lots of food/stores.

Large room, decent bathroom with nice amenities. Upgrading to a Keurig coffee pot would be nice.

Stayed 2 nights to help my kids get set up at the ASU . very convenient. restaurants all around. metro across the street. will be staying there again. thank you

It was Move in Weekend at ASU, I was lucky to reserve a room so close to the campus. The hotel was crowded but the staff was gracious, we received many complimentary discount coupons to enjoy during our stay. The room was comfortable, but not thoroughly clean, as evidenced by the housekeeping staff still attending to rooms on our floor at 5 pm on check in day. The facilities are dated, but once were elegant, I'm sure. The nearby conference rooms appeared heavily used. Parking leans toward valet service, with limited self-parking. The parking lots at the rear of the hotel are only accessible via the Lobby after dark as a safety precaution. The pool, spa and weight room were all very busy during our stay.

We had a wonderful stay at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. The hotel is in a great location - walking distance to ASU and Mill Avenue (plenty of shops, bars, and restaurants). The staff is very nice.
