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 clean and well decorated. We visited the sauna which is just across the parking lot. The sauna water temperature was warm but none of the jets really produced any water pressure.
The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet.
We ate breakfast at the in-hotel continental breakfast. The food was fresh and the selection was reasonable - yogurt, cereal, hard boiled eggs, danish, juice, coffee.
Overall, the stay was comfortable and pleasant. I knocked down the rating to three stars for three reasons. First, I paid $300 for the two nights. The hotel is rather plain and a bit dated. It is still off-season and the hotel was nearly empty. I would have expected to pay $200 for this stay. Second, the sauna was a disappointment with its lack of working jets. Third, the hotel overall is still a bit dated. It has been renovated but could use some additional updates to windows, doors, and the sauna area.
Overall, we had a nice stay and at a lower price I'd stay here again.
