I had the pleasure of staying at Murphy's over a long weekend. My husband and I were greeted right away and given our room (202) within minutes of arriving. We loved the chill Colorado vibe we experienced at Murphy's from the availability to rent bags or horseshoes at night, to relaxing on the porch of our room. We traveled to Estes Park for a wedding which was hosted at the new hotel right across the parking lot from Murphy's and were so pleased that we did not spend the extra money to stay at the other hotel (the other hotel did not have any of the Awesome amenities of Murphy's) While the rooms at Murphy's could use some updating, for the amount of time that we spent in our room, we did not care...for traveling to Estes one should be out in the beauty the national park has to offer!! My husband and I hope one day to return to Estes with our children- we definitely will be excited to return to Murphy's, too.
