My fiance and I had made a trip to Murphy's Resort last July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so with our most recent trip to Estes Park it was no question to stay here again. Bruce and Loretta were extremely welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Just as the staff promised us in July, the renovations the... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Murphy's Resort for her birthday weekend. We were enthusiastically checked in by Casey and given a room towards the end of the second building. The lobby had an odd smell to it but was clean. Ample parking was available in front of the room which has an outside door. The room was... More

Great place overall, service was amazing and the staff were very friendly! We enjoyed the hot tub area, playground and the free continental breakfast ( I'm gluten and lactose intolerant) so I was a little worried but there was no shortage of options, I was able to enjoy my coffee with soy and almond milk, hard boiled egg, banana and...

A very family friendly environment with great views. We knew the resort had been recently renovated and updated. I must say they did an amazing job. Service was exceptional with a large commons area for dining and hanging out. The rooms were very large, clean and fit a family of five comfortably. The kids enjoyed the weekend playing on the...

We spent last weekend at Murphy's Resort and it was so awesome!! All around we had such a lovely experience! The room was super clean (and I'm a quite picky) and the bed was cozy. Our kids loved the play area with a nice swing-set, big boulders and open space for them to run. We loved to picnic tables that... More

We found Murphy's from a Groupon offer and decided to give it a whirl. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of our room. We had asked for a king room, and we found that plus a leather sleeper sofa along with a microwave and mini-fridge. It didn't feel cramped at all and we could have probably comfortably slept 4...

Perfect place for a relaxing weekend get-away! The rooms were immaculate and the bed very comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming. The community room with daily breakfast was inviting and the breakfast variety was more than expected. Although an older facility, it's obvious that great improvements are being made and will continue. We will definitely be... More

After reading other reviews, I felt that Murphy's Resort was as promised. It is an aging facility that has been recently updated. New paint, carpeting, tvs, etc... are all noticeable. We were in a room with 2 doubles and just the 2 of us and had plenty of room. Had there been 4, we'd have been a bit cramped. We... More

Thank you for choosing Murphy's Resort. Yes, you noticed, we have made many wonderful changes, including new TV's, beds, furniture etc. I'm sorry I did not know you were interested in a more spacious room than our standard 2 queen, which is comparable to most. I would have recommended one of our 2 room suites or our 2 room king/kitchenette... More
