Excellent place to stay in Estes Park! I was really impressed with the rooms at Murphy's. Very clean and there is a certain amount of detail that they pay attention to, for making sure that these rooms are kept up with. Beyond the rooms the staff is fantastic and give such a great sense of hospitality! Very friendly and helpful.... More

We had a king-size room with a Jacuzzi. TV in both rooms with free dvd's to rent. It was a very short drive to downtown, with a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains! The staff was rather nice and the continental breakfast is decent. My boyfriend says they get a minus one star for breakfast since there was no bacon...lol

We are happy to hear you had a wonderful romantic time at our Resort. The Winter time is an awesome time to enjoy the mountain beauty. It's nice to see your boyfriend has a since of humor. We have a joke in our family we always imitate Homer Simpson, "mmmmm Bacon". Anyway, we are glad you had a great time... More

Not only was the room wonderful, the owner Bruce even gave us a ride to the mechanic and treated us like family. The hot tub was great and the view was even better! In the spring elk walk right in front of the windows and the lake is right there. There is a playground for the kids and a laundry... More

If you are looking for a property like a "Ritz", this is not it. If you are looking for a friendly, clean and affordable retreat that caters to family, look no further. We attended our son's destination wedding in Estes Park in July. Five other related families joined us at Murphy's. Not only did we have a great wedding event,... More

Murphy's Resort was a wonderful place to stay. The room we had was clean and comfortable, especially after spending a day snowshoeing in RMNP. The people that own the place and the staff are extremely personable and were wonderful to meet. We would definitely come back and stay at this location. We had a lovely view of the lake and...

From the minute I arrived I felt right at home with their friendly staff, environment, and service. The views are spectacular from each room. The rooms are clean, comfy, cozy, and updated. Highly recommend Murphy's Resort at Estes Park. The resort is steps away from Estes lake to enjoy a brisk walk.

We loved it. We came to Estes with 3 couples; 2 had been at the resort before but it was my husband and I's first time. We were all pretty hungry when we checked in and the front desk staff was awesome. With 6 people, picking a restaurant was frustrating. The staff kept giving us recommendations until we found a...

The staff was very friendly, the rooms were great, very clean! I love the location by the lake, we walked down to the trail around the lake and had a great hike! They have a very large selection of DVDs that can be rented for free. I would definitely stay here again!
