We found this property on Trip Advisor and chose it based on the ratings. Ignore the terrible reviews, they are 7-8 years old. I was greeted at the desk by the owner, who is very nice. The room was small, but impeccably clean and appointed with most of the amenities of the chain hotels. It has nice character, a good... More

When I was a kid I enjoyed traveling with my family. I have fond memories of Mom and Dad loading up the Galaxy 500 and heading out for family vacation. Since I was the youngest, I would many times sit in the front seat (before seatbelts) between Mom and Dad with my older brothers in the back seat. In the... More

We came down to Murray to spend the weekend with our son and future daughter-in-law, who is a Murray State student. We stayed here and absolutely fell in love! It is clean, cozy and I loved the retro feel our room had! The staff was very pleasant and made our short stay a joy. So much so, we are heading... More

I have traveled and stayed in a lot of motels, but none can even come close to Murray Plaza. The best well kept, up to date with all anyone would need in a room. The owners and their staff are more than helpful in all ways. This grounds are always groomed and well maintained. Home away from home in other... More

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
