The room was very large, clean, and remodeled. They had movies, games, and lots of outdoor games as well. The man helping in the breakfast room had great tips and advice about the town and Rocky Mountains. Will be staying there my next trip to town!

Murphys has it all! From the painting classes, to the pools, to all sorts of activities outside your door from tether ball to volleyball, Murphys is amazing! The room was clean and cozy. The staff makes you feel right at home and go above and behind to make sure your are comfortable and have everything you can possibly need. Thanks... More

We stayed at Murphy's Resort for a short weekend getaway and really enjoyed it. From the outside it looks like an old 50's style motor hotel but everything has been redone recently so the rooms are very nice and very modern. The beds were very comfortable, there was a jetted bathtub, a large flat screen tv w/ dvd, and a... More

Thanks for the review. We are an old motor lodge. When first opened we were the talk of the town, so we are told. We have kept the old and brought in some new. Our staff is friendly and also keeps our Resort very clean. We have many activities and fun things to do at our Resort. We hope to... More

There are literally 100's of choices to stay in around Estes Park from corporate motels to luxury condos or rustic cabins. There are two properties with the Murphy name in Estes Park. One is a multistory brown building on the river north of downtown. This one is a former road motel on the extreme south end of town. It is... More

Thanks for all your compliments. We have been updating like crazy in the last 2 years. If the WIFI is slow it can be caused by our BAJA service, we can always give them a call when this happens. Murphy's Resort does have a lot of activities and we also have a great staff that helps make everyones experience at... More

What a gem of a hotel. Was a last minute, we were tired and I quick looked up the rating on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very clean, a bit retro, but the beds were AWESOME! The room has all the amenities you need, including a nice sized fridge. The staff were very pleasant. The breakfast was... More

Yes we are a bit retro. We wanted to keep the old style motel. In the last 2 years we have done major renovating. We have kept the old but added new. We have new beds, flat screen TVs, WIFI, new linens, towels and the list goes on and on. We have a wonderful staff who keep everything clean and... More

We had a very enjoyable experience here. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. We used the huge indoor hot tub, had a cookout on the grill, and had a fire in the fire pit that was already full of wood and ready to light. There were hundreds of free movies to rent at the front office for... More

This motel has been remodeled and nicely done. I can't say enough about the cleanliness, quiet room, and nice decor. Though it is a budget priced motel, it feels much nicer than that. Breakfast choices were very good, and the breakfast room was pleasant and immaculately kept by a friendly woman who not only kept it clean and well-stocked, but... More

This was the perfect place to stay and get to know Estes Park! Our room was very clean and comfortable. We also had a great view of the lake, a gang of elk, and the beautiful mountains. We really enjoyed our time here and would highly recommend Murphy's to anyone headed their way.
