This little plaza in Murray was a perfect country stay. We staid in the 2 bedroom suite which was perfect. The rooms are not separated by a door but for us it really did not matter. Each room had their own tv and own bathroom with shower which worked out perfectly. The staff is extremely friendly and made our stay... More

Great place to stay. Modern conveniences (free wifi, cable, good a/c) but old fashion charm. Very friendly office staff. Room was small, but for one person it wasn't bad. Only a few minutes from Murray campus. Definitely stay here again! I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't need a pool or other amenities.

We were again in Murray to get our daughter moved into MSU, hard to believe she is a senior this year! Murray Plaza Lodge has been our go-to place over the last 4 years. So much so that we are remembered by name. This visit, we enjoyed a quick breakfast, cooked in our room microwave, then eaten outside in one... More

I was in town for two nights for my high school reunion. After knowing what the Plaza Lodge had been like in years past, I was quite pleased with the reviews that I read on here. So I took a chance and booked my stay. The room was nice and comfy. The ceiling fan was a nice touch for someone... More

My parents and I were here for about two weeks and I can honestly tell you that was one of the best decisions we made! The owners were very welcoming and we just felt at home. Now, considering the fact that I had not seen my parents in a while that says a lot! The reception and service in general... More

We have had another pleasant stay at the Lodge. My two daughters enjoyed playing with the friendly people at the front desk. Room was exceptionally clean as usual. It must be the color of the room or the décor?? Something made me feel at home than being in a hotel room. The gazebo made good shade and had pleasant breeze.... More

Dear Hyun: Thank you for coming back and writing us another wonderful review with pictures. The "welcome to Kentucky" sign on I-24 brought my memory of coming back home after long time being away. We all enjoyed playing with your beautiful little daughters. Hope it's not too long before we play with them again :) More

I enjoy staying at small private motels, but do sometimes have a hard time finding one that's kept up. This one is. Nicely kept grounds, clean rooms, pleasant staff. Wifi in the room was a bit weak, but sufficient. Traffic along the road is a bit noisy, but didn't stop me from getting a good night's sleep. Plenty of eateries... More

It was a fine place. Nothing special but definitely worth the money. It was nice having a small fridge in the room. We were going to an event at the university and it was close by. Everything is on the main strip so it is very convenient.
