“A NICE PLACE TO STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at Murphy's resort. Lovely pool and hot tub, clean updated rooms, good location. We have no children, but enjoyed watching families playing games together - horseshoes, beanbag games, etc. Bar-B-Q's available, and plenty of tables for everyone. Very friendly helpful office staff too.

Room Tip: We had a lake view - very nice

I gave it four stars overall, but this is a mixed review. We were there as a family reunion over the forth of July. Overall everyone enjoyed themselves and had a good time. The place was big enough to accommodate our large group, but small enough for us to easily find each other and get together.

Pros:
Very friendly staff
Very accommodating to our large group
Convenient location
Relatively affordable
Pool and activities
Beds were clean and comfortable

Cons:
We had one of their more expensive rooms, but the flooring and decor were cheap.
We had a gas leak in the fireplace.
We found a roach in the bathroom when packing to leave (good thing my daughter did not see this).

It appears that your overall experience was a good one. We are glad you enjoyed your stay ! I just wanted to your comment about seeing a roach in the bathroom. In Colorado their are many different Beetles that might appear to look like a Roach. I believe that is what you might have seen. We take a great deal of pride in our rooms and we have never had a house keeper or a guest see a Roach at our property. In fact we have a contract with a extermination company that provides regular spraying to keep out bugs. I did call our serviceman that does the extermination for all of Estes Park and he informed me that he has never even seen any Roaches in Estes Park. Please come back and stay with us again !

We were late booking reservations for the 4th of July and we lucked out finding Murphy's. Staff was so helpful and the rooms and grounds were extremely clean! Lots of activities onsite to do and Lake Estes in the back yard. The free breakfast was nice too.

We are so happy you could be at Murphy's Resort for 4th of July. You are lucky to get a room because we were sold out. Our location by Lake Estes makes 4th of July a great place to be.
Please join us again for any holiday or just a few days of vacation.

Murphy's was perfect for what we needed. It isn't anything exceptional, but what they do, they do well. The people running it do a great job. They are helpful, friendly and efficient. The rooms are nice sized and clean. We had a lovely view of Lake Estes. A great place for many people to gather. A nice fire pit, pool, Jacuzzi and family activities. Breakfast was ok, but something hot would have been nice as well. For the price, I would stay there again.

We are very pleased you had a great time at our Resort. We do have activities and that is a huge plus. Another extremely huge plus is we have a great staff. Our managers are Fantastic. Our cleaning staff work so hard to keep everything clean. The front desk staff work hard at keeping everyone happy. The maintenance staff are very skilled. There is one thing we can't change and that is having a hot breakfast. The State of Colorado will not allow us to have one because we do not have a commercial kitchen. We provide lots of choices of breakfast food. Danish, English Muffins, Bagels, Toast, Yogurt, Cereal, Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate and I am sure we are missing a few more items, its hard to remember everything and list it. We are glad you had a GREAT stay with us. Please come again.

We liked Estes Park so much, we extended our stay. At last min. We found this place, which had good reviews. Booking the room on the phone was easy and room was nice as described. It was nice to hear the sound of flowing river Big Thompson. The room was spacious and had all the amenities. Breakfast had a nice variety.

If your looking for a place with clean rooms, great views, things for the kids to do, then Murphy's resort should be your next stop. Not only is the staff warm & friendly, this is a place that has everything your looking for. Plenty of things to keep kids outside enjoying Estes Park, and that calm peaceful relaxing time that the grown ups need.My husband and kids will definitely stay here again, and I would recommend to all my family & friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 302, the view was amazing, nobody was behind us. Watched sailboats on the lake and...
