Like another poster, I would like to give this place higher reviews. Other than sleeping, I'd easily give this place five stars - cool, friendly staff, clean, central, etc. Unfortunately, the most important aspect about a hotel is probably sleeping. If the review were based solely on sleeping, I would give it a 'one' even though the bed was comfy,... More

Family stays here for reunions, it offers enough rooms and friendly service. The rooms are clean in the new additions, and while not new, completely adequate and large enough. AC worked fine during the heat wave. Note: no AC in old hotel and shared bath, no frig or microwave in any rooms but suites.

Good food, friendly staff - breakfast all day on weekends! Located in the middle of Murphys on Main Street and is a great place to take a break and get yer grub on! Check this place out! (PS they went through a makeover with Hotel Hell! Sure was worth it!

Make sure you check out the historic rooms upstairs that are staged. Stayed in newer rooms which are OK, but lacked charm of historic hotel, however they had AC!! Food in restaurant was very good. Dining outdoors is nice, weather permitting.

Stopping two days last week on a roadtrip with my sister. Nice place, sleepy town. The suite we stayed in was good, was cleaned well but probably had some animal visitors before us as both my sister and I got very allergic. Liked the place though.

Murphys is a trip in time. If you want a taste of what it was like back in the day this is the place. The older rooms in front have no bath room, but ours did have a sink. ( we were in the Lipton room the tea guy Check their web site for the historic rooms.)The bath is down... More

Historic and charming this is a great place to have lunch. Outside, if the weather permits, is a great place for people watching. The food is great and you can park in their lot (street parking is usually limited in Murphys.

Thank you for the nice review! We do have a very nice outdoor patio which is open daily if the weather permits. All of our food is made with love. Our burgers come from locally raised Orvis Grass Fed Cattle. Most of our vegetables are also locally grown. Everything is made in house. I hope you can make it up... More

When I booked this hotel I was looking for authenticity, an old style miners hotel with a big long bar, original rooms; a place from where I could 'feel' the town. I wasn't looking for on-suite comfort, I wasn't looking for anything that a regular hotel chain would give me - I can get that anywhere. I got exactly what... More

We stopped in at the hotel bar on the off chance it was open for business (as was the dining room). The bartender was lighting the wood burning stove and invited us in...cheerfully said if the door was open, he's open. We were the first customers. Had a leisurely Baileys & coffee, then breakfast. My wife had the hotel breakfast-eggs,... More

We have stayed here on three occasions. Once, in the old hotel which was a last minute decision. It was a bit loud so we decided that from now on we would stay in the rooms outside the hotel. We booked this last weekend in October because we had wanted to experience the Christmas parade that is held on the... More
