Stayed there on a Monday night (two days ago) after hiking Half Dome. 2 Queen Beds, clean room and good rate. The man who checked us in gave us a quiet room and asked me if I had AAA which saved 10% (nice gesture). Easy to walk a block to shops, restaurants and coffee in am. No brainer. Plenty of... More

Thank you for the excellent review. Now that you have hiked Half Dome you will definitely have to return to explore Big Trees State Park which is just up the road or the caves right here in Murphys. More

Had a great stay here. Okay location, at the far end of Main Street, but easily walkable to any and all shops. So while you can get to all the shops/restaurants, you will not be bothered by their noise. The room and property was clean and well maintained(which I particularly value), but the thing that made this place was the... More

We had a pleasant stay at Murphys Inn. Bruce, the manager at the front desk was friendly and helpful. They had fresh doughnuts and Oreo cookies everyday, which pleased my eight year old. Its walking distance to the main town. The pool isn't heated if you care about that stuff. The rooms were clean, not fancy at all, but for... More

This place is wonderful! Very nice and friendly staff who are very accommodating. I highly recommend it. They informed me of things to do, places to go and people to see. I especially like the treats they keep in the lobby.

Nice clean and modern rooms with everything we needed after a long day of hiking and driving. It was close to town so only a short drive to where there looked to be a lot of nice shops for people who like this and we ate at the historic Murhpys Hotel, which was worth the visit as well.

It's a great location with a very courteous staff (especially Tanya). The rooms are comfy and clean. As trivial as it may sound, the pillows and mattresses are very sleep worthy. The little diner next door compliments the small town ambiance. Bring your walking shoes because you'll want explore every inch of downtown.

So glad you found us "sleep worthy" that is the name of our game. Pleased to hear you enjoyed Hillbillies Restaurant and Downtown. We hope you return to explore more of Hwy 4. More

This motel was perfect. Walking distance to downtown main street. Very clean room. Staff was friendly, I believe we were helped by Tanya and Bruce who even let us check in several hours early and check out a later than usual. The pool was nice, small but clean and just what we needed. I would stay here again for sure!
