Yes your step1 score is not that great, but you have got a great CK score. Now if you have an equally good step 3 score, you can make a good applicant.

I thought program directors don't care about your step 3 score, right? If they do then how important is it

Admitted that step3 does not play a major role in getting you a residency, but if someone has an average score in any one of step1 or 2, then getting a good score covers that deficit. As only a pass is required in step3, so probably the more important thing is to pass the test, rather than getting a 250.
However step 3 is not required to get a residency. It is not part of the filters for interviews. The most beneficial part of having step3 is that you are eligible for an H1b visa.
