Staying at the Murray Plaza Lodge is a trip back in time. The clerk was very friendly and made you feel welcome. It has been completely renovated. The exterior is nicely landscaped with shrubs, trees, and a gazebo. Our room was renovated with a new window, door, paint, bed, etc. When renovating they kept many of the other original furnishings.... More

The level of customer service here is way above the bar. The Owner takes great pride in the property and it shows. My daughter will be at Murray State in the fall and I will definitely stay here every time!

My family stayed at Murray Plaza Lodge when we were visiting relatives in the United States. Murray was a beautiful small town. Murray Plaza Lodge itself was a great attraction to us. All rooms were bottom floor and it had large parking space, big lawn and three big gazebos, all of which are rare to find in my country. We... More

My husband, myself and family stayed at this Lodge many years ago and stopped staying there because it had deteriorated so badly that we did not enjoy staying there. However, in 2013 while visiting the trip advisor web site I came upon the Murray Plaza Lodge and started reading some of the reviews and decided I would call for reservations.... More

We stayed at the Murray Plaza lodge in mid-January for one night so we could attend a student event at the university. A friend recommended Murray Plaza, and also I had consulted with Trip Advisor, noticing the 2013 award. Usually we stay at a chain hotel where we earn points. This is the cleanest motel/hotel I have stayed in in... More

When my family visits relatives in Murray we always stay at Murray Plaza Lodge. Making reservation is the simplest among all hotels I have been in. I just call them and give my name. That’s it. Since we are repeating customers, they don’t ask anything else. The rooms are clean and spacious and all items are well arranged. Microwave, mini... More

We were in Murray to attend a funeral, and since there was also a high school band competition at Murray State, hotel rooms were few and far between. This place was not my first choice, but everything else was booked. I always check the reviews on Trip Advisor and was impressed with the positive reviews for this old fashioned motor... More

I've become a frequent visitor to Murray Plaza Lodge since my daughter now attends Murray State.The rooms are clean, with microwave, fridge, tv, and even a coffee pot. I like that the place is a no smoking, no pets zone. STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY!
