“Great Place to Stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I booked this room at the last minute for a weekend trip to the Gold Country for wine tasting and other events. It turned out that the whole town was booked due to a very popular concert at a local venue. I got the last room available. When I arrived, I was impressed on how clean the facility was and how friendly the desk staff was. I was helped immediately. Once I got to the room, I was impressed with its cleanliness and spaciousness. The hotel was just a short walk to the downtown area. Murphys has a bunch of wineries and tasting rooms on their main street all within walking distance of the hotel. This was a great place to stay. My first choice was going to be a hotel in the immediate downtown. In speaking to people that I met that weekend, they were a bit disappointed in the downtown hotel. I felt lucky that I got the last room available. The weekend was pure joy. The morning complimentary donuts delivered to your room was a nice touch also. Nothing but great things to say about this place; and by the way I am quite fussy and not easily impressed. I would stay here again in an instant.

Room Tip: I believe that I stayed in one of the larger rooms as it was the last available. It was great.

Happy to hear you got the last room in town. Ironstone Vineyards puts on a great summer concert series as does Twisted Oak Winery. Our goal is to provide friendly service and clean rooms. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your return.

We had a delightful couple of nights at the Murphys Suites. It was hot in August and we loved cooling off in the pool. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and you are within walking distance of down. The rooms come equipped with a microwave, coffee maker and fridge. It was just the two of us but these rooms would easily accommodate a family. The staff at reception were helpful and friendly

We were greeted by a sweet and helpful desk clerk who offered us Oreo cookies along with their homemade miniature doughnuts for the following morning during the quiet mid-week. We spent a couple nights along with several fellow friends touring and shopping the local town of Murphys and the area's many vineyards, wineries and tasting rooms. The inn is easy to locate as you enter town, right on hi-way 4. The only real downside to the motel is that it is located just a bit too far on the edge of town to make walking into town difficult, especially if one is inclined to purchase a few bottles of the local wines and carry them back to your room. However, we experienced no difficulty in finding downtown parking, especially during the mid-week.
We found our room ample, clean, well appointed, and nicely maintained. The only quirk was no towel bar near the wash basin. A convenient elevator made it easy for bringing our luggage and other items up to our second floor room.
If your travels include a stay in Murphys, we would recommend choosing this comfortable motel.

Room Tip: Use your AARP or AAA card for additioanl room discount.

The Dazzling Divas had a great time at the Suites. The staff allowed us to check into a couple of rooms early so we could make the 1:30 tour at Ironstone. We loved having a " game" room to play cards and games in the evening. We had 4 rooms with 4 in each and there was plenty of space for luggage and purchases. The Suites is conveniently located...we went to Tea at Columbia Kates Tea House in Columbia...delicious. Enjoyed breakfasts at Grounds...and loved the consighnment stores and shops! The staff at the Suites gave wonderful suggestions and directions. We were totally spoiled by the lattes in the morning along with fresh donuts. Thanks for a great trip.

Enjoyed our week-end stay. 2-room suite was very clean, pleasantly enough furnished and spacious with 2 comfortable queen beds and adjoined sitting room, with TV in both rooms. Friendly staff. Donuts & Juice delivered to our door each morning was a nice convenience. Suite also has frig, microwave, hair dryer and coffee maker with supplies. Would definitely stay here again.

We come to Murphys from the East Bay usually 2-3 times a year for a winery event and have always stayed at another property. This time, they were booked full, but, lucky for us Murphys Suites was not. We got a room a kind of the last minute, got an AARP discount and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We took advantage of the pool (no one else was there) and will definitely remember the sauna next trip. Very friendly employees, extremely clean room with a fridge for our drinks. Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I would ask for an odd numbered room, away from the highway. However, we were on the highway side a...
