My husband, 2 children, and our dog all stayed for a weekend get-away. We were pleasantly surprised with how welcomed we felt by the friendly staff. We had one of the pet-friendly rooms and were very pleased with the cleanliness. The decor was perfect for our 8-year old son...it was a Superhero theme! He loved it! A special thank you... More

We were very happy with our 7 day stay at Murphy's. The staff was extremely friendly and the accommodations are perfect for Estes Park (where you won't be spending much time in your hotel room). Our room had a nice view and we were able to view wildlife out our window in the morning and enjoy a wonderful continental breakfast.... More

We went here on a late fall weekend with our 2 toddlers. We couldn't have felt more welcome. The rooms are modest, but new and very clean. There are 2 playgrounds on site, a bonfire was lit every night and there were a ton of kid-friendly movies. We will definitely be back.

My faily spent 2 nights at this resort. The room was clean, good size and nice view of Lake Estes. The outdoor pool was nice and the indoor hot tub was great. The staff was very friendly. The included breakfast seating area was cheery, Could have used a hot egg offering. Overall very happy with the hotel and the location.

My partner and I stayed here at the house on the property. It was very spacious yet cozy. The deck was awesome to sit out at night and in the morning to have coffee. The full kitchen provided us the ability to stay in and make our meal. Check in was a breeze and the staff is more than helpful... More
