Went to my first class tonight. It was so much fun! Loretta and Addie were so friendly and encouraging. It's nice to have this kind of entertainment in Estes Park. I will definitely be doing this again!

We've stayed at literally every hotel (including The Stanley) in Estes Park. We got a great deal at Murphy's...the place is perfect for friends or families. The GM's Loretta & Bruce are amazing! We also purchased the Sip & Paint class and have never had so much fun! We made new friends and had a blast...and hey, our paintings are pretty good. :-) MAKE THIS YOUR NEXT PLACE TO STAY!!! You won't be disappointed!!!

We got a Living Social deal for a quick night getaway for here. The pictures looked great, so we said why not? When we got there the place/grounds were clean. The entrance to lobby smelled alittle funny. haha. The gentleman at the desk was very nice! He told us about the upgrades (we just booked a standard room originally) and even gave us the lower price for a great upgrade. Two person tub, King sized bed, small kitchen, Fire place that sits in both bedroom and living room. The room was clean, smelled clean and pretty modern looking.
There is a pool (which was closed for season) and a hot tub. My only thing was the hot tub closed at 8pm. And the timer for the fireplace makes a noise. But no real biggy to us!
The resort is very close to downtown Estes Park. For this time of year a lot of stores were closed but a lot too were open with really neat things to see. Its very close to the Rocky Mountain National Park and Stanley Hotel (The Shining - were he wrote some of the story not where it was filmed).
You even get a free framed picture on the big wooden horse out front! It real cute.
Breakfast is included. Yogurt, cereal, toast, bagels, juice, coffee, muffins, fruit. It was good.
Definitely going to stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room faced the street and it was quiet. So I don't think street traffic is an issue.

My husband, 2 children, and our dog all stayed for a weekend get-away. We were pleasantly surprised with how welcomed we felt by the friendly staff. We had one of the pet-friendly rooms and were very pleased with the cleanliness. The decor was perfect for our 8-year old son...it was a Superhero theme! He loved it! A special thank you goes out to Casey and Stephanie, two staff members who went out of their way to take photos of our family on the playground in the snow. Casey even went and got his own camera and then gave us a print in a very nice frame! No charge to us! What a very memorable weekend for us as this might be the last one with our 14 year old furry family member. Thank you for making it so special! We will be back!

We stayed at Murphy's Resort for our Honeymoon in May of 2013. We were greeted by friendly staff in the office who had a lot of knowledge of the area. They were able to tell us some nice places to visit in the area and recommended hiking trails. We met the owner on our second day and once he found out it was our honeymoon, he personally brought up a complimentary bottle of wine. The free breakfast every morning was a huge plus, especially when a lot of our trip consisted of hiking, white water rafting and other forms of exercise. It was essential to have a large, healthy and FREE breakfast! Other amenities include a pool & hot tub on site. We stayed in one of the rooms on the river. It was so relaxing hearing the river go by at night and spending time on the balcony just drinking wine. It was the perfect way to end the days. I would highly recommend the balcony room on the river's side. The location was also great for us. It's walking distance from shopping and a couple restaurants. It was the perfect location for us as we were looking for a private, romantic and adventurous Honeymoon. If we visit Estes Park again, we will definitely be staying here!

We were very happy with our 7 day stay at Murphy's. The staff was extremely friendly and the accommodations are perfect for Estes Park (where you won't be spending much time in your hotel room). Our room had a nice view and we were able to view wildlife out our window in the morning and enjoy a wonderful continental breakfast. Highly recommended and a great value!
