Stayed there for one night and it was just what we needed. The rooms were clean, freshly updated and well appointed. It's an old motel which has been renovated and updated but has a pleasant retro feel. It's and excellent value. There's no pool or free breakfast but we didn't need that! Staff was very friendly!

In Murray for MSU orientation with my daughter and forgot to book a room in advance, Murray Plaza Lodge had the last room in town. It was fine for a brief overnight stay. Older property, but room was clean. We could hear street traffic.

We enjoyed our stay at the Murray Plaza Lodge. Our room was very clean and and the grounds and facilities were very well kept and attractive. The owners were friendly and the staff was helpful in recommending restaurants and attractions in the area. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends. If I had to make...

My husband and I were planning a stay in Murray,Ky and happened upon the website for Murray Plaza Lodge. I was unsure at first as pictures tend to be decieving, however this lodge is by far, the best place we have stayed in a long while. We enjoyed the surrounding sceneries of the Ivy, and Roses, the sitting area outdoors... More

We luckily found Murray Plaza Lodge 5 years ago when our daughter was getting ready to be an MSU student. We stayed there for honors weekend, SummerO and then many family weekends, basketball games, and end of semester pickups. We always knew where we would stay, because we were never disappointed! Our last stay was 2 weeks ago, for graduation... More

It's feels like it was yesterday when you and your family came for your daughter's governor's scholar program. It has already been 5 years, and she has graduated! Thank you so much for 5 years of patronage and many wonderful reviews. We will remember you all. More

This quaint hotel has become my second haven. I've been staying here since 2013. It is clean, safe, and affordable. I missed staying in the fall while my daughter was studing abroad. I like how they take pride in running this family business. It is the only smoke- free and pet free place in Murray for me to stay while... More

On a whim, my husband and I went back to his old stomping grounds of Murray State for the weekend to catch a fundraiser (truck / tractor pull). I did a little research and found this place to be the #1 trip advisor choice of hotels in town. I can see why! The place itself is spotless and the room... More

Excellent value with clean rooms and friendly staff. They do everything they can to be flexible with your schedule. Safe atmosphere which is great when traveling with friends and family. Landscaping is very relaxing and makes you feel a bit of nostalgia. Very unique experience that I will revisit.

This makes two times I have stayed here. It promise you this is the cleanest, most well kept motel in west Kentucky. Privately owned and most courtious and accommodating people you can meet. Highly recommended.
