Loretta was very friendly, both when I called to make a reservation and when I checked in. Although the rooms' decor was nothing special, everything was immaculate. I wish I had checked to make sure the hide-a-beds had sheets before we went out for the evening, because when we returned after hours and discovered no extra bed linens anywhere, we... More

My wife and I were going to stay in Denver and visit Rocky Mountain National Park for two days, but the Denver traffic and hotel selection in our price range was abysmal. Our first night at our Denver hotel we found Murphy's Resort and booked immediately. Only ten minutes away from the park gate and five minutes from downtown Estes... More

The hotel is right next to the lake and is very quiet. The room was very clean and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. We did, however have some loud neighbors but that's not the hotel's fault. We'd recommend the place.

We took our grandsons to Estes Park to play in the snow for spring break. Murphy’s Resort turned out to be a great choice as a place to stay. It is very family friendly and offers a lot of activities at no extra charge (Bikes, outdoor games, videos, etc). The staff (Especially Eliza) were very helpful throughout our 4 night... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending a wedding. The staff at check in and out were incredibly friendly and helpful, Kudos to Eliza. We stayed in room 406, a king room with a Jacuzzi tub. We were impressed by how very, very clean the room was. Now the only down side was an intermittent clicking and popping sound... More

We are happy to hear you had a great stay at our Resort. The popping and clicking ended up being because a zone valve for our hot water heat was put in backwards. We have since had it reinstalled. We are glad the rest of your time was awesome. We have a great staff and we are very fortunate for... More

This was an awesome place. Management took care of every little need of guests. They had good collection of DVDs and board games available free of cost. The lake view from the room was breath-taking. I would love to visit Estes park just to stay at this hotel. Absolutely loved it.
