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.

I am really a hotel snob, but after a round fighting with Priceline over a stay at a chain hotel, I decided to skip it and try this motel. It's very clean, people are nice, and it's comfortable. Bathroom is very small, and rooms are not modern, but it's clean and very affordable. I'll stay here again. :)

A privately owned motel w/ a cottage-y feel. Rooms are passable size, very clean, have fridges, free parking, good water pressure, nice sheets. The main drawback is the sound of the in-wall heater/ac - really loud. Book directly w/ the motel - the discount sites were more expensive once tax was added.

We have stayed here several times. This time we chose the two room suite. Great decision. Plenty of room and a separate room and tv for the kids. I do wish there was a door between the room though. For the price, this place can't be beat. We will definitely stay here again!

I went to Murray State a geologic age ago, and lived in Murray for quite some time. This motel has been there for the duration (although I will always call it the Murray Plaza Court - old habits die hard), and has always been a decent place to stay at a decent value. Today, compared to the chain things, this... More

Very courteous and accommodating on quick notice. We were welcomed warmly and was an excellent example of southern hospitality. We accidently left an article, when I called to let them know , they are going to mail it back to us. Thank you

Wow, what a courteous northern review! We are glad you have experienced southern hospitality with us. Hope your item has reached you safely. By the way, the restaurant you wanted to say sounds "Sirloin Stockade" :) Thank you for your time in writing such a wonderful review. Hope you have wonderful holidays! More
