“Convenience of Continental Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loretta was very friendly, both when I called to make a reservation and when I checked in. Although the rooms' decor was nothing special, everything was immaculate. I wish I had checked to make sure the hide-a-beds had sheets before we went out for the evening, because when we returned after hours and discovered no extra bed linens anywhere, we had to improvise with their signature "triple sheeting." The best thing was the convenience of the complimentary continental breakfast. The variety (yogurt, fruit, cereal, donuts/muffins, juice, coffee) was on a par with Marriott Residence Inns, and the hosts were as warm and welcoming as could be. In a crowded tourist town like Estes Park, it isn't particularly easy to pack up a family and troop to a restaurant, so the ability to just walk over to the breakfast room was a huge plus. Our stay didn't coincide with the Sip & Paint sessions they hold on certain evenings, but those look fun. Very reasonable prices!

My wife and I were going to stay in Denver and visit Rocky Mountain National Park for two days, but the Denver traffic and hotel selection in our price range was abysmal. Our first night at our Denver hotel we found Murphy's Resort and booked immediately. Only ten minutes away from the park gate and five minutes from downtown Estes Park, we never regretted our decision. This was such a cute resort! We had an amazing view of Estes lake and was able to park right in front of our room. The hot tub was huge so it wasn't weird if other people got in and they have free DVD rentals at the front desk. We went in March so we probably got an off-season rate, but our room was clean and updated (with two windows on separate walls) and the staff was very friendly. Overall, we always looked forward to going back to our room and will stay here again if we are in the area.

Room Tip: King bed with view of Estes Lake are far from the road and have better views

The hotel is right next to the lake and is very quiet. The room was very clean and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. We did, however have some loud neighbors but that's not the hotel's fault. We'd recommend the place.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. Our room was very clean, comfortable bed, warm, cable and a free breakfast. Every room has a mini refrigerator and DVD player. The office offers free DVD rental and has a big selection of movies to choose from, board games and offers painting classes on Monday, Wed. and Friday nights. The pool, hot tub and playground are great, even had Elk visitors in the afternoons. We cannot wait to go back!!! Eliza and the whole staff are great!

We took our grandsons to Estes Park to play in the snow for spring break. Murphy’s Resort turned out to be a great choice as a place to stay. It is very family friendly and offers a lot of activities at no extra charge (Bikes, outdoor games, videos, etc). The staff (Especially Eliza) were very helpful throughout our 4 night stay. The rooms have been refurbished and were very comfortable, but the staff is what separated them from most of the places we’ve stayed.

My wife and I stayed here while attending a wedding. The staff at check in and out were incredibly friendly and helpful, Kudos to Eliza. We stayed in room 406, a king room with a Jacuzzi tub. We were impressed by how very, very clean the room was. Now the only down side was an intermittent clicking and popping sound all night long from the ceiling or wall by the bed. It was enough to make it hard to fall and stay asleep. Overall we enjoyed staying here even though we had a ruff nights sleep. We would stay here again.

We are happy to hear you had a great stay at our Resort.
The popping and clicking ended up being because a zone
valve for our hot water heat was put in backwards. We have
since had it reinstalled. We are glad the rest of your time
was awesome. We have a great staff and we are very
fortunate for that. We hope to see you again at Murphy's Resort.
