I used to use this hotel for some of our employees who travel. The employees complained that there was no heat in their rooms last time, and that the man at the front desk appeared to be intoxicated. They also had food missing out of their fridge in the rooms more than once. When I called to give them one... More

We stayed at this hotel based on the reviews we read at this site. I would never have chosen it by it's curb appeal - the sign is half gone and it looks like a no-tell motel from the road. The rates are great, but you get what you pay for. The room was large, and had a microwave and... More

Stayed here last night. Have to admit, this place doesn't look like much. Wouldn't have necessarily chosen it out of a lineup. No one else was here when we arrived (and, in fact, we were the only guests the whole night). It definitely doesn't have curb appeal, but it did have what we were looking for: inexpensive, clean, and safe.... More

I read with interest the reviews from some of the guests who have stayed at Mtn Vista Inn and am confused. They must have had some sort of "ax to grind". Our stay was fantastic! The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very congenial and helpful. Granted our room did not have Chipendale Furniture ... nor Rembrandt paintings... More

This hotel was built in 1982 and it appears that not one thing has changed since it was built. The water took 10 minutes to get somewhat hot. Not a blade of grass for our dog ($10 per night charge for the dog). The lock on the door was a twist button knob as in a house (not very secure).... More

My girlfriend and I are actually moving to the Murphy, NC area and are spending more than a night or two in this motel as we look for a place to stay. We have some special needs as well. The staff here has been very understanding of our special needs which has been a big plus for us. The motel... More

Clean. Efficient. Cable TV, microwave, fridge, FREE wi-fi (yes, even at lowest rate) and office will bend-over-backwards if you just talk to them (if you even need to!) Best $39/night value I have ever seen from Dallas to Orlando in past couple years. I see effort to bring even more "curb appeal" to place but the rooms are just fine.... More

I travel on business frequently. For 39.00 a night it was fine. My room was clean. The people at the front desk were helpful and very friendly. People that expect the Hyatt for $39.00 are out of line. I have stayed here 3-4 times in the past year and have no complaints. Clean and quite. David Stewart

Place was like a desert and very run down. The rooms were basic and would have been OK if we'd been paying half the cost we did pay. The woman at the desk didn't seem quite with it, all very unprofessional and sloppy. No services provided. Must have been nice in its heyday which was probably years ago.
