This is a 35 star review There are many good aspects and a few not so good things about Lodge on the Desert

Based on the pictures on the website and the room we were given there is likely a renovated half and a non-renovated half near the restaurant While we were on the restaurant side, our room was not as bad as what was noted in other reviews The carpet had not been vacuumed, but otherwise the room was clean enough and rather large Bathroom was fine and the large closet had the coffee service and fridge 3 stars The restaurant atmosphere was nice and they had a lot of outside seating The breakfast was free and was a set menu and not very exciting but tasty enough 4 stars The grounds have a great cactus garden and a lawn for pets and one for kids and events The pool is on the small side and there are not enough seats for everyone to enjoy 4 stars Very friendly front desk! Convenient location to everything in Tucson and local parks Will try to get a room on the renovated side next time

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for the first time, the staff and management were so friendly and helpful, and they were extremely courteousWe arrived at the resort on Easter lunch and experienced one of the best buffetGeneral manager was present and greeting all the guests, he also came to our table made sure we were well taken care of

Next day, We received a call from the hotel staff asking if our stay was going well and if we need anything Daily complimentary breakfast was more than our expectation Everything was perfectI would recommend this hotel to my friendsMike and Nina

Family comes here every year to visit Love love this place The vibes are always the best

Great out door seating at the restaurant which serves some of the best hotel breakfast out there It’s a buffet that changes every day, so yeah it’s awesome The rooms we stay in are always great We did get a room this trip that had a broken AC and they compensated us and moved us immediately to a room that had working AC and it was peachy Keep up the great service

Beautiful resort splashed up against the desert mountain rangeNext to a great hiking trail behind the tennis courtsFood and restaurant were blah and not resort quality

Since food quality was blah, we ate outside the resort every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinnerGoing out to enjoy the local food is the best experience Many great food choices for foodiesDrinks were goodSwimming pool and jacuzzi hot tub were awesome, every day and evening

El Conquistador Tucson, A Hilton ResortHotelPLACE DETAILSa week agoBecause this “resort” didn’t send me a survey or request feedback about my stay like most Hilton’s do, I will post my review hereThe resort is beautiful and looks like a lovely place to relax Unfortunately for me, that wasn’t why I booked a four day stay there

Coming from Pittsburgh, PA and never being to AZ before made it difficult to decide where to stay I chose this hotel/resort becauseit was the closest place I could find to where I needed to be to tend to a family crisis I would’ve chosen elsewhere if I knew that there was no way to park closer to my room I wish this was indicated on your website or that someone in the Reservations Dpt warned me, Because I was in Tuscon to help clean out my family member’s house, I returned to the hotel each evening with several heavy bags and binsto sort through which forced me to rely on bellhops every time I was coming or going I waited up to 45 minutes for a bellhop on oneoccasion and then at least 30 minutes for all the other times I’m pretty sure there was only one bellhop available per shift and thatone bellhop always had the only cart with them so I couldn’t do it myself I must say that all my interactions with the bellhops were pleasant, and they all apologized when I told them how long I had been waiting Because the bellhops were the only highlight during my stay, I then had the unexpected task of making sure I had enough cash on hand to give them a well-deserved tip ($30 in $1 bills) I need to add that there was one front desk associate (Jolleane) who offered to walk me to my room as it was late at night, and she knew I had safety concerns This offer was greatly appreciated

Joyce Donnelly

This hotel has beautiful views but you certainly cannot credit the staff for that This is just a hotel that happens to have a nice viewThere are no microwaves, which is extremely inconvenient

If 2 star hotels have microwaves and a free breakfast, I would expect a 4 star hotel to have that as well It really deterred me from spending any money at their over priced restaurant since that is clearly the motive in having no microwaves Luckily there are nice restaurants close byThe hot tubs were not very hot Felt like bath waterRoom service was sub par, I had to ask for full sized towels because they forgot to give me some No real cleaning was done, just a quick towel and garbage grab and they were goneAlso, do not expect to do your laundry here They charge you per item, not per pound You’re better off driving 15 minutes to a laundromat and doing your own laundry for less than $3 (Opposed to $450 per shirt and over $8 per pant, etc)Overall it really seems like I should have gotten a lot more bang for my buck here

It reminded me of what a Tucson quaint resort would be It was a referral for us to check Lou check out and it lived up to what was described to us as a quiet get away for us as a coupleThe staff was awesome! Especially the gentleman that was running the breakfast every morning

He was very kind and Thoughtful and we saw him 4 mornings in a row The options were awesome for a free breakfast the views were one of the best parts, you do not have patio or inside were both great choices Free mimosas were awesome too!We didn’t try the regular rooms we did get a suite that was pretty cool because it had its own patio in front and patio in the back and a Mini kitchen… There was no bathtub So for warning if you want to soak, but they do have a Hot tub that was nice and a well kept pool, though it was showing its age One of the small amount of pools left that still have a deep end so it’s nice to do a little dive :)They have a good event center that I’m hoping to do a wellness event ato vent at so I encourage anybody wanting to easier access for traffic and parking place to do an event to check it outIf there was one thing that stands out that I would ask them to improve it would be the elevator😬 I know it’s older but the smell was odd and it just seemed rickety and wasn’t a good 1st impression when taking things down to the rooms It could make a world of difference to have a nice elevator to greet people for their 1st time on the property It would be a great investment for that establishment Outside of that everything else was well maintained, comfortable, quaint, totally Southwest to Tucson vibe, and nice Courtyard gardensWill be coming back again

Cherry May

Quaint, cozy, clean and affordable are the words that best describe this little hidden oasis We love that it is the most pet friendly hotel we’ve ever been to Staff were nice and accommodating

Only reason why I cannot give it 5 stars is because 1) There is no on site laundry facility and 2) The bathroom does not have a vent fan Other than that, this is the best place to take your family and your pet(s) while in Tucson

Jim Mash

This is a cozy hotel, we enjoyed our stay The staff are exceptional, they gave us great accommodations because we are with our kids, the breakfast were great, more than the standard hotel continental breakfast The hotel layout and architectures are quite unique, like in south Spain or some Caribbean town

Location is close to lots of shops and restaurants, very convenient Will definitely come back next time!

Jeffrey Tarkett

Very uncomfortable It has a halfway house atmosphere The “residents” dominate the common areas

They made my wife and I feel we were infringing on them There were verbal conflicts between residents We have stayed here multiple times the past 2 years This will be our last We will advise our outstanding of state family to stay elsewhere Management has made their choice

Kris Conner

Ok, so before you judge this place by my post you have to understand a little about me I love skunky places They just have a little more character without any pretensions

Ok here we go first off this place is in a strip mall so make no bones about that It is clean, the beds are very comfy and the pool is good sized with a nice hot tub The laundry room is a plus! And there is a great continental breakfast that seems to be a dying commodity these days I love the hacienda styling in the courtyards Now the far side the hotel has partnered with a local rehabilitation center and does house some folks who are working to get clean So if this for you is an issue do be aware as the hotel does not just share this fact Otherwise 4 stars overall

Kelly Chin

35ish for me Room is mostly well appointed and maintained

Parking area doesn’t inspire confidence, but no mishaps Cold shower one of two mornings, moderate noise from outside and from walls that seem thinner than normal, and a tub drain plug that doesn’t actually fit the drain lowered my rating Breakfast spread is mostly fairly good, though the scrambled eggs were not

We only stayed one night but I wanted a clean room and a welcoming atmosphere after a long day of driving The resort delivered The room looked just like the picture and it was clean and relaxing

The thermostat was easy to use which made our stay comfortable The staff was so kind and welcoming They helped us figure out dinner and get settled The waitstaff was amazing and the food was delicious We spent a few hours at the grill and had a wonderful time We are planning to come back with our full family to enjoy the other accommodations Worth the price

Doug Wicks

It’s a nice resort, beautiful environs Reasonably priced, good facilities, very nice staff Like a lot of properties, I think it needs a little refresh after covid, seems like certain things have not been attended to as perhaps they would have if Wyndham was flush, and staffing was not an issue

Paths around the property need repaving Less trafficked areas of grounds had bits of litter Carpet fraying a bit at the junction w hard floor of the bathroom Mostly very nice but


We had stayed previously at the Loews Resort and had such an awful time there we decided to give this place a try, and I’m so incredibly happy we did The staff was so nice and our check in process was quick and easy, we booked through bookingcom and had no issues at all

Valet was present and able to help us to our room immeadiately and he was such a sweetheart The staff working along the property are incredibly knowledgeable about its history John Wayne and Dean Martin had stayed here before and the room they use to stay in is now the cutest gift shop The room service was amazing, everything was fresh and clean We tried all the deserts and couldn’t pick a favorite they were equally so wonderful in their own ways We walked around the gardens and the chefs garden was so amazing We saw so much wildlife including a snakes, cardinals, lizards, and lots of different species of butterflies We learned about a ghost that also roam the property and in the beginning of my stay I swear I had seen her standing in our bathroom checking on us We are huge paranormal fans so this was an out of this world stay Definitely coming back Thank you so much to everyone here!

Every single part of our stay was amazing! The food, the activities, the staff

we will definitely be doing this again We visited months ago and we still talk about it all the time Hands down the best family vacation we have ever had Every person working on that ranch is friendly and happy to help! We enjoyed making friends with the staff and our stay in general We loved it and recommend it to everyone

holly proto

The ranch was exactly what our family had hoped for during our spring break The rides were great especially the fast rides We participated in all the horse activities, archery,

22 shooting, entertainment, and e-biking, which was actually very fun Makayla did a great job My older son enjoyed the basketball court , my in-laws enjoyed the hot tub, and my younger son and I enjoyed feeding and petting the horses during any down time We enjoyed every minute here! Customer service is excellent Special thanks to Kristy for picking us up at the airport after many delays and going out of her way to stop by the store for us and having the items waiting in the hacienda! We highly recommend this place!!! We will very much miss the horses especially the ones right out by our house! We stayed in the hacienda It was a lovely home with beautiful scenery from the front looking at the horses to the back by our own fire pit with the mountains in the background

Tanya Wallace

We took a group of 11 people to the ranch for a work trip All of the staff were very accommodating Carol and Stefanie were awesome at arranging our group activities

Everyone had a blast We had a lot of beginner riders Some had never been on a horse before The wranglers were very patient and encouraging with us all The shooting range was well organized We Definitely recommend the White Stallion Ranch and hoping to bring our kids back for a vacation soon

This hotel is amazing!! It was my last stop in a string of many hotel stays on a cross country road trip, and boy, did I save the best for last!!Very friendly front desk staff, very clean rooms with high quality soap/shampoo, comfortable beds, and great water pressure The hotel breakfast was one of the best I’ve seen, with lots of options and a large, tastefully decorated space to enjoy it Plus, I love the fresh lemonade & cookies offered by the front desk, a thoughtful touch

I wouldn’t stay anywhere else!! Can’t wait to come back!

Lindsey Lou

We were pleasantly surprised We choose a king size bed room with a pullout couch It had a microwave, fridge, and sink

Plenty of space for a pack-n-play as well The front desk people were courteous and they had complimentary cookies, juice and coffee in the evening For breakfast, their food was better than other hotel breakfasts The egg omelet was soft and they had oatmeal, cereal, and waffles as well Highly recommend

Hayley Stansell

My ONLY con for our experience here was that our room lacked a microwave and the fridge didn’t have a freezer portion I feel like I have never encountered a hotel room without a microwave That said, clean place, well-maintained, just meets the criteria you would expect at a place like this very nicely

The breakfast has the usual items for a hotel in this price range – BUT, it is better attended to than most The items were prepared WELL, the eggs were good (also were just eggs, some places add ham which screws over vegetarians), they had lots of toppings for oatmeal, waffles, etc Overall just an example of a well-run hotel for it’s class Great experience!

CD Reynolds

I am happy to give this establishment 5 stars Clean & comfortable hotels can still be found at an excellent value- (even in today’s market) The highlights of the suites are the large kitchenette and the extremely helpful service

The front desk personnel are kind, friendly, and accommodating (We were a family of 4 – including a special needs adult staying in the 2 queen room) The suites themselves are located in a quiet part of town relatively close to attractions I felt safe in and around the hotel I would stay again & am happy I found such family friendly lodging!


We spoke to Nichole Oram the front office manager, multiple times before our stay She was always very nice and helpful with all of our questions about Tucson and the surrounding area She recommended multiple places to dine for both breakfast and dinner

All were VERY GOOD I can’t go on enough about the diner across the road called Jerry Bob’s The staff was very friendly and the cook was spectacularOur room was very clean, and the air conditioning was nice and cold Just what you want in the hot, hot summertime We were surprised to find that we could do laundry for free while staying there We will stay at this hotel every time we pass through this part of Arizona I wish all hotels were as clean, the staff was as nice, and the location this good!Thanks again Nichole for everything

Randi rae

Great rooms, very clean and good for one person Two people might need a larger room than what they offer but for the most part very nice accomodations The staff is very helpful and friendly with the exception of one staff member who has an attitude and is not friendly or concerned with how she comes across to guests

I witnessed multiple interactions in which she was quite unfriendly I did notify the manager of my interaction with this staff member and was assured it would be addressed as it apparently is not the first time someone has brought it to their attention The staff member Ryan, I believe is her name, was my favorite and most helpful, accommodating front desk person I had the pleasure of interacting with and if I went back it would be because of the great service she provided and the effort she made to correct any issue that was brought to her attention As far as hotels pool it was small but nice, the gym was a good size and they offer free laundry which is a plus if your staying for an extended amount of time Overall I was pleased with my stay

Jason Haap

On paper, this place has exactly what we needed: two beds and a sleeper sofa at an affordable priceWhen we arrived, an afternoon in the middle of a desert heatwave, we checked in then found out there was no running water for the next three hours And if we needed a drink? There was a vending machine selling bottled water for two bucks a pop

This did not sit well with me It’s a desert heatwave Maybe offer free water while you fix your pipes!Since we were traveling, we needed to use a toilet – and we needed them to flush! The guy at the desk said we could go to Denny’s We hopped in the car and drove over A big sign on their door indicated toilets were for paying customers only Being dehydrated, we bought drinks so we could use the toiletThat night, in the room, we learned we could not control the AC It was so cold! (Ironic, I know)So at least I had breakfast to look forward to Wrong again A sign indicated Tucson area hotels were having supply chain issues with their hot breakfast items Out of curiosity, I called two other 3-star hotels, and they both reported no supply chain issues with breakfast I wonder if the management just wanted ways to short us for profitThey did remodel recently So the freezing room with no water or breakfast did have a new toilet and suchI should also note the girls working the front desk were all super professional and kind Not their fault the management does it this way

James Pellinghelli

This hotel is pretty conveniently locatedIt has a pretty good shower in the room and the room was pretty cleanThe bed was very firm

Breakfast was OKMicrowave cooked eggs!!A pretty good experience for the price overallI’ve always been happy to stay at a Country Inn and Suites

Diane Hilliard

The room was clean and mostly comfortable I don’t believe the sofa bed sheets were fresh However, after going to the front desk to request replacement sheets and being denied by the housekeeper there, we encountered a housekeeper near our room that was more than happy to supply us with whatever we needed

The telephone in the room is mostly unusable because the cord from the phone to the handset is broken, and doesn’t stay in the handset unless you hold it there I get we have cellphones now, but sometimes you just wanna call the front desk The breakfast was mediocre We got there about an hour before closing on a Sunday, and there was no milk left (pitcher only) The sausages were limp and undercooked The fruit was fresh, and there were lots of bread choices It was ok, just not for my taste Overall, the room was comfortable Just like having different choices for pillows, I guess it’s the same for beds One queen was comfy, the other hard as a rock Luckily there were others in our party not as old as me, so they were fine Most of the staff were encountered were friendly and helpful, the pool was clean and refreshing, and the room was comfortable (the chair and sofa were really comfy!) The neighborhood is a little rough (there was a shooting at the hotel next door), but we didn’t go out at night so we were fine Daytime is great Convenient, literally right off the freeway Oh, and nice hot water for the shower!

This hotel was a great place to stay the night on our trip home The room was super clean along with the rest of the hotel The breakfast in the morning was hot and the front desk clerk kept the breakfast room spotless, he cleaned after every guest filled their plates and finished eating

It was so nice to be in such a clean facility with friendly attentive staff We would definitely stay here again if in the area Worth every penny

Ranger Green

This hotel is very nice Patrick was at the front desk and he was very friendly Check-in was fast

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable Our room was very quiet, too Breakfast was greatmore than enough to get you going in the morning The coffee was very good! Over-all, this is a nice place to stay (my wife and I stayed two nights) I will stay here again and I recommend it Just gotta mention Patrick at the front-desk againvery nice guy!

Dale Eagar

Three stars is a mid level rating not disappointing and not surprisingly great That is average in my book, as it indicates my expectations were metThe room was physically clean and smelled clean and fresh but not chemically

The bed was comfortable and clean as well All in all the stay was fineThe hotel is near I-10, so there is some road noise, again as expected The noise, however, was not bothersome to meSo, in summary, a solid three star or average, as expected, ratingDisappointing me results in lost stars A pleasant surprise will earn an added star or, if exceptional, two

I want to leave a review on how excellent the representatives are I had been up since 5 am, flew on a plane, and had to drive from PHX I have a reservation set up already, but my debit card froze, and I did not have access to pay for the whole stay

She allowed me to pay for one night and come back and pay for the additional days I would also love to mention that this hotel is quiet, clean, and peaceful Thank you for the unforgettable mini-vacation


The front desk were very kind, pleasant, and helpful All the employees wore masks Decent breakfast options and good variety of channels on the TV

I always had parking at the front of the hotel The young woman who checked me out was going to try to get me greener stay points since I did not use housekeeping during my stay I also liked the convenience of the gas station nearby and the bike trail by Steam Pump Ranch (have to walk to Steam Pump ranch across the shopping center to get to it) There was a gym with a small but decent assortment of free weights, a bench, and a small but decent amount of cardio equipment, and outdoor pool 5 min away from Linda Vista hikes The room was mostly clean There were some weird quarter sized stains on the couch and curtain in the room The office chair had tons of crumbs (or bed bug eggs?) in the seams of the chair so I moved it to the corner of the room and did not use it for my stay The shower was out of body soap but I used the bar soap by the sink There was also no lotion in the room It would have also been nice if the gym had more stationary bike options other than the recliner bike and more cardio options, such as having a stair-master

Selfishly, I almost don’t want to write this review because I want to keep this beautiful gem all to myself! The property is absolutely dreamy with gorgeous plants and southwestern architecture and decor It was the perfect backdrop for the relaxing getaway that I needed Everything, from the grounds, to the pools, to my room, were all very clean

The staff were the cherry on top of the sundae–warm, welcoming, beyond helpful, and catered to burnt out people like myself Rhea, at the front desk, was so kind and friendly and helped me with almost everything I neededNow, lastly, but most importantly, I had THE BEST massage from David at The Spa I’m sure they are all wonderful, but if you need to melt away your aches and pains, he is the massage therapist to schedule with He was professional, listened to my needs, and removed a knot from my upper back that I thought would never go away, as multiple other massage therapists were unable to resolve the issue I also received a facial from Lois, which was hands down the best I have ever had My skin has not looked this refreshed in so long Thank you to everyone at this resort, from the cleaning staff to the owner, for such a beautiful and restorative experience I will definitely be returning

I like this Hampton I stay here often They have a pool and hot tub

You can walk to a few different restaurants, including the gas station/Dairy Queen directly next door They have an uncovered outdoor areas for us dying breed of smokers, it’s just next to the pool and has a great view of TucsonThe only bad thing is the breakfast I’ve stayed at a million hotels and the free breakfasts are always lacking Maybe I need to learn to use the waffle makers 🤷🏼‍♂️ but the same folded over eggs and the same potatoes get old I settled for cereal and a yogurt The rooms have a coffee maker in them, but I took a chance and went to the lobby at 5am I found the coffee was fresh and decent Many hotels don’t put out fresh coffee until 6am when breakfast is served, so I was happy about that!!If you go a few miles south on Oracle, there is a first watch They have some of the best breakfast there If you haven’t been before, you should try it rather than the hotel breakfast, you’ll thank me later I do feel bad talking bad about the breakfast, because the lady that makes it all is a super nice lady and does a great job! She even draws smiley faces on the oranges

I’d never stayed in Tucson and if I can avoid it I certainly will My husbands company used Choice Hotels and he had already stayed in a couple others in Tucson that were unsuitable That being said, If you don’t mind a hotel crowded with the homeless and transient then this could be a place for you

There is what seems like a homeless camp behind the hotel and unfortunately that’s where most of the parking is as well I didn’t feel comfortable going out of the hotel at night Those that could afford a room were inside the common areas As we were walking in with our bags, we were stopped by the front desk clerk saying he had run up to check our room and it wasn’t ready He had switched us to another that was and handed us our new key We got up to our room and it smelled of fried food, which is weird because we were on the second floor The bathroom door didn’t close much less lock and the volume on the remote didn’t work either The next morning I woke up to what felt like bug bites all over my legs and torso We only had 1 set of towels for 2 people and so we made the most of it The breakfast area was again crowded with transients and we definitely won’t be staying there again The staff was very courteous and doing the best they can under the circumstances

Where shall I start? First I have been a Choice Privileges member for seven years and never had a problem or issue at any Choice Hotel that we have stayed at Well that all changed this time and hopefully will not be an issue for anyone else but it needs to be told about this Comfort Inn Upon check we were informed by the clerk that the pool and hot tub were not available because they had not been given clearance! She said we would be able to use the pool and hot tub at the Holiday Inn Express next door by showing our room key

We decided to do that and you can guess our embarrassment upon walking into the Holiday Inn Express and being told no way they had no information about Comfort Inn guest using their pool, saying it would be a liability issue, agreed with that Upon informing the clerk at the Comfort Inn she made a phone call in the back office and then said there is an issue She gave us 20% off our room but later saw her let a lady and kids into the pool Really? Reported same to Customer service

Coming from the hospitality industry myself, I think my standards are high and I’m a bit picky I have never been more impressed with a hotel I was allowed an early check-in (due to unforseen events) and a late check out

The front desk staff is exemplary The attitude and professionalism of every single employee I encounteredsuch a friendly, “all is good”, relaxed attitudethe maid staff whistling tunes and singing while they clean It really has been a pleasure staying here and seeing genuinely kind people enjoying their jobsThis has been a difficult phase of my life, relocating and not feeling on solid ground and this hotel and this wonderfully kind staff made all the difference THANKS SO MUCH, I APPRECIATE EACH OF YOU!Also, the rooms are very comfortable and very clean and all the breakfast options are delicioustoo many options, I’m pretty sure I gained a few pounds

Andrea Maria

We have stayed here once before but never again after this stay There were small bugs in the bathroom that kept on coming that we eventually found on the bed We asked Linda in front what she could do about it and was told that it was common for the area

We have stayed in dove mountain and other Marriott hotels before where the wildlife is a feature, but we’ve never had these problems Housekeeping is doing their best to take care of them but there’s only so much they can do Kudos to the housekeeping staff for being friendly and helpful but Linda not so much We asked her twice to move us to another room, and no resolution was offered other than a reluctant move to another room We will be contacting general management on Monday

Halsey Hall Lindquist

Very impressed with the service Very nice breakfast I’m not that impressed with the rooms

Parts of the bathroom floor were constantly wet because the shower curtain didn’t seem to work the way it should and the showers faucet was so confusing One knob to turn on and one knob to change temperature We also had a broken window screen and a cricket in the window clearly due to the broken screen Would definitely stay here again But would try and be aware of some of those issues before hand

Had to make our own bed with incorrect sheets: Prechecked into room from email in the morning and received notification that room was ready by noon Arrived late at night to find that only one bed was made Was told there were no other rooms to be exchanged and was then given sheets to make our own bed

Sheets were the incorrect size too small This was to be a good positive family trip and after a long day of traveling this was not a positive place to be Very sad Was given a discount but would have rather have paid more to have a good situation

Armando Enriquez

I just want to say that in this hotel they have bugs The reception person went to take photos and looked at the bug that was there as soon as I let them know in case they wanted to stay here She meant that they were rain bugs that doesn’t make sense

She didn’t apologize or offer anything very disappointed I feel I wish they could be more careful with this and I am talking about the hotels owners

Stayed 10 nights, quick check in, property is close to shopping and dining Was reasonably quiet Breakfast was hit or miss I give it 7/10

Employees are amazing very guest focus and accommodating Rooms are comfortable and nice, carpets do need a shampoo Rooms are cleaned every three days or upon request Which was more than adequate for my means All in all it was a pleasant stay Will be back next year Thanks

Taylor Buck

Rooms are nice, staff is nice Washer and dryers are paid and suck You can get quarters from the front desk only if you have cash

My clothes came out still dirty from the washer and wet (not damp) from the dryer Couldn’t get hot water for my shower Found someone else’s hair all over the room Including the bed, shower, and couch It’s definitely not my hair, it was long straight dark brown hair, my hair is medium length curly and green/blue The a/c is weird Otherwise it’s a good place to stay

Michael Del Grosso

The suite was very spacious and clean The pool area hot tub patio seats everything was kept very nice The girls at the front desk we’re polite and courteous as well as the clerk the next morning on day shift

Although they had construction going on at the time it did not affect my room and the noise from the contractors was only during working hours and did not wake us up or keep us from going to sleep Located next to great restaurants like Guadalajara right across the street I would highly recommend staying at this hotel

Dr. Holly DeWitt

Had a great 1-night stay! Front desk, Sara & Michelle, were fabulous! I stayed in a renovated room and it was so nice! Hot water, great lighting, refrigerator, comfy bed, and great location to restaurants/drinks/Whole Foods Pool was very clean and great temperature No breakfast, currently, due to renovations(but knew that going in)

Would definitely recommend!

Thomas Xyclone

We stayed at the 3 Palms for five days The room was clean but very small We had a king size bed which took up mahout 90% of the room

Actually, the room was laid out nicely and had a small refrigerator and microwave in a cabinet The room had the nicest big screen television I have ever seen The staff was very friendly We were at the back of the hotel where a lot of construction equipment was stored It appeared that the hotel was under major renovation but surprisingly the area was actually very quiet I think our room had been renovated: however I noted a large crack under the entry door Worried that rodents or bugs could easily enter the room No breakfast is offered at the hotel but coffee and tea is offered in the morning My main issue is the road in front of the hotel, N Oracle road, is like a freeway Non stop speeding traffic made it difficult to exit the property There are plenty of restaurants and businesses in the area that you can walk to but the area is much too congested Not a bad hotel, although a little expensive,but I would probably stay elsewhere on my next visit The room was just too small and there is no breakfast included with the rate
