My husband and I took an impromptu trip to the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee the first weekend of November. We did not have a reservation anywhere as we weren't sure where we would end up. When we drove into Murphy around 4:00 in the afternoon, we decided to try and get a room. I looked up hotels on TripAdvisor and saw that the Best Western had good reviews so we decided to get a room. The desk clerk was very friendly and I told her the lowest rate I had seen on line and also told her we had a AAA card. She gave me the manager's special rate, which was less than the AAA rate. We noticed they had smoking and non-smoking rooms and wanted to make sure the room we got did not smell like smoke as we are allergic. The desk clerk took the time to walk us to the room and let us inspect to make sure it smelled OK. The room smelled very fresh and clean with no smell of smoke at all. We've experienced problems with other hotels that had "non-smoking" rooms that smelled heavily of smoke so we were pleased this room smelled so nice. The room was a standard hotel room with a comfortable, very clean bed, flat screen TV, desk with chair, sofa, refrigerator and microwave. There is also a coffee pot in the room with individual coffee pods. Everything seemed very clean in the bathroom as well. The room seemed very quiet and we never heard any of the other guests the whole evening or the next morning. We did not notice any road noise as another reviewer stated. The breakfast was decent, but nothing special. Pancakes from a machine that were pretty tasty. There was the usual selection of pastries, toast, cereal, apples and bananas. Overall, the stay was very pleasant and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a room in the Murphy area.
