I stayed one night to refresh from a day of skiing at Bear Valley. Both the gal who handled the check in and the gal who handled the check out where enthusiastically kind and helpful. The Inn was clean, nicely appointed and maintained for the price. A whole level above the usual fare of a reasonably priced hotel. The bed... More

If you are looking for a cheaper, basin option for a place to stay in Murphys, then this is a good choice. It is a short walk into the center of Main Street and the price was right. We easily walked to some of the wine tasting options and wandered the stores. For breakfast, we walked across the highway to... More

We stopped in to see if a room was available, and met Krystal at the front desk. She was warm, kind and helpful, and immediately brought a smile to the faces of two weary travelers. The rates were very reasonable. The room was immaculate, and the wifi was free. We couldn't have happened on to a sweeter surprise. We enjoyed... More

Taking a road-trip, we stopped at Murphy's without a reservation and we were given a lovely accommodation. The front-desk person, Krystal, was very friendly, kind and helpful. Our room, and the motel, were very clean. There was internet, TV, refrigerator, and microwave - all appreciated! Would stay there again, and would recommend it.

Last Saturday we wanted to stay the night in Murphy's so we could go snowboarding the next day. It was a pretty last minute trip, as we heard they were finally going to receive snow. Tripadvisor showed that Murphy's Inn may be booked up so I called to book directly and got lucky with a room. The price was the... More

I stayed at the Murphys Inn Motel over Presidents/Valentines day weekend with my fiance and it was a pleasant experience. We started going to the wine festival in 2014 (found it by accident) and decided to make it an annual trip as the wine festival makes for a great time. This year we wanted to stay closer to Murphys (stayed... More

Great location just a block from the Main Street shops and tasting rooms. Modern and comfortable rooms. Very friendly staff - Kim was great! We forgot a framed photo in our room which we had purchased at a local craft fair, and Kim ran it out to our car just before we left. She also greeted us every time we... More

Great location if you're in town to hit the wineries and restaurants on Main Street. I've stayed at the sister location as well (Murphys Suites), but this location gets you a bit closer to everything on Main Street as well as restaurants for breakfast that are steps away. The rooms are not as big as the Suites, but that's not... More

My daughter left her backpack in the hall which contained an iPad and phone. The staff found the backpack and it was safely returned with all the contents still left inside! The staff was very friendly and the motel had a charming small town feel. Will stay again when in town :)

We arrived late after an exhausting day and booked in on the spot. The motel was very clean and convenient for downtown. Receptionist was very upbeat and helpful. Can't give a 5 because we didn't use enough amenities to test the limits. However, I would stay here again.
