I drive from Arlington Virginia to Murphy North Carolina at least annually, for three primary reasons: (1) drive the Cherohala Skyway, (2) drive the Tail of the Dragon, and just to drive any local two-lane mountain roads. I choose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Murphy because it's conveniently located near the two main attractions. Two great restaurants are located in downtown Murphy, just a couple of miles away (Murphy's Chophouse & ShoeBooties Cafe). This hotel does not sport the most luxuriously-appointed accommodations and amenities among this chain, but it's comfortable, quiet, and the staff are great. I would prefer a firmer mattress, and many of the office desk chairs need replacement. (The chair in my room was stuck in a semi-reclined position. Housekeeping provided a much better replacement the next day. The bedroom is not separated from the "living room," and the closet is not fully enclosed. Free breakfast and wi-Fi are available, as is an pool indoor pool. A nice place to come home to after a day of riding through the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests!
