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

This review was written by someone who was not even supposed to be a guest. A company called “Labor Finders” reserved the 1 queen bedded room for 1 man for single occupancy for 7 nights at discounted price. The room exceeded the agreed occupancy. The man brought two extra adults. Their daughter’s autism was not the reason that we couldn’t... More

Room was small, ut we just needed a ace to sleep for a few days while visiting family it was perfect. Hubby even said it was the first hotel in a while that didn't give him... 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.

I arrived late on a Sunday night looking for a clean and reasonable priced stay. We actually stopped in at America's Best Value Inn almost diagonal from this location, due to their cheap prices. I recommend NOT staying there. Their employees were rude and after I asked if any rooms available, the man at the desk replied, "Yeah, why?". Needless... More

Where do I start? I couldn't imagine a better place to stay than the Murray Plaza Lodge. My son and I were visiting Murray State University and happened upon this hotel. The minute I walked into the office, I knew this was the place for us. The staff, which was also the owner, made us feel as though we were... More

Wow! After staying here once, I swear I will never stay anywhere else in this area. These folks will blow you away with their kindness and cleanliness. The rooms are spotless and elegantly renovated with extreme attention to detail. Even the outside landscaping is carefully tended to. Well done!
