I checked into this place around midnight on a Friday night, before having to pickup my son at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown before 9 a.m. the next morning. It's about 5 miles down the road from the school. The night desk clerk was very polite. He told me about the free breakfast the next morning, and said... More

We stayed at the Murphy HIE on a Friday night in December as a stopover on our annual trip to a Christmas tree farm. The hotel is what you would expect from a HIE...friendly staff, nicely maintained building and grounds and clean, spacious rooms. We stayed in a Jr. Suite and my two 3 year olds loved sleeping on the... More

Clean, good size rooms, and a nice overall experience. This has been typical every time I've stayed at this brand (Holiday Inn). Some things that stand out with this one: 1. Excellent breakfast - eggs, hot bacon, pancake maker (granted, these were silver dollar-sized pancakes, but still good). 2. Tiny indoor pool - this has also been typical of Holiday... More

I drive from Arlington Virginia to Murphy North Carolina at least annually, for three primary reasons: (1) drive the Cherohala Skyway, (2) drive the Tail of the Dragon, and just to drive any local two-lane mountain roads. I choose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Murphy because it's conveniently located near the two main attractions. Two great restaurants... More

Our stay was a great experience. The front desk lady gave us a list of places to eat and recommended a few. They were very helpful with directions to places that we wanted to visit. . Our room was very nice and clean and the free breakfast was good.

Added the HI Ex at Murphy to our string..........we stay at this chain 10 times or more each year. This particular one, while fairly new and evidently well maintained, was remarkable for the lack of customer service orientation demonstrated by the staff we encountered at the front desk. This began when we arrived at 2pm and were told that no... More

This place was recommended to us by a local business so we stayed here. After driving the day to get there we arrived and were greeted very nice by the staff. We left to go out to dinner and when we returned we were very tired. We booked a suite to have enough beds as my mother was staying with... More

Nice hotel, comfortable beds, clean! Friendly folks especially Joan (she's there in the afternoon). Beautiful views and close to Nantahala. Indoor pool was clean. Nice workout room with washer/dryer if needed! Flat screen tv's, beautiful dining area should you have a group. Enjoyed my stay and would visit this establishment when in Murphy.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend as a jumping point for our motorcycle riding. Great location for us. We had a slight issue with the toilet not working but didn't change rooms until the next day because we got in so late and just wanted to go to bed. We were upgraded to a suite so it was... More

We were happy that we selected this small hotel. It is close to the main street area of Murphy. There are several restaurants nearby. The hotel has nice clean rooms, a fairly large selection for breakfast including pancakes, and an indoor pool. It was very quiet the night we stayed there. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
