After watching Hotel Hell with Gordon Ramsey we were hoping for the best. Our group had lunch on the patio and it was a lovely setting. The staff was really attentive but it took a while for the food to come out. The food was good quality at a reasonable price. We looked through the hotel and bar and sadly,... More

Stopped in for lunch, a beer and to watch the soccer finals. The bartender was great, food was good. We were glad that we had the game to watch because the food took a little too long to arrive at our table.

The Hotel bar is cozy and Old West in flavor. With quite a selection of beers and a large selection of hard Liquors. Of course if you want one just walk up and down Main Street which is littered with wine tasting establishments.

This hotel was average at best. The rooms were not in the historic portion, but in an addition. The room was facing a large grassy area, which had been rented out for a wedding. Needles to say, the crowd became a bunch of drunken fools, fighting and screaming. The staff was rude and unprofessional from the first encounter. The only... More

If I told you that one of the best Ramos Fizzes I have ever had was in the mining town of Murphy's Calif. You'd probably question my sanity. Well question it. Ate lunch there on the patio two days in a row, Memorial Day weekend. Lunch both times was perfect. My wife's Reuben on day 1, was as good as... More

We have visited Murphys every year for about the last 10, and have stayed all over town. We keep coming back to the Murphys Hotel for two reasons- you can't beat the price and the proximity to everything in town. The old building is charming and historic, but the lack of ensuite bathrooms and AC means we now stay in... More

This review is for the Restaurant on the property. We had a group of about 30 people and we were celebrating birthdays and anniversaries. The staff did an awesome job. Our waitress split up the tickets for individual couples, where most places would say NO for a group this large. The service was excellent, the food was warm and delicious... More

Like others, we enjoyed the convenience of the "new" part of the hotel and stayed away from the "historic" part as we wanted a private bath and less noise. The room was nice and well appointed and clean. However, the heater was very noisy coming on and off all night and no way to control it, other than turning it... More

Not sure what to think after reading reviews of people staying in the historic part. Because the "new" part is tough. Writing from the room right now 11 pm and a band is blaring from the bar down the street. It feels like and old janky ski lodge, no snow around though. We are in room 206 and can hear... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Murphys Historic Hotel is the longest continually operated hotel in California. The Hotel was built in 1856 and we try to keep our nine historic rooms as close to that time period as possible. If you are to stay within the Historic Hotel you are without T.V., Phone, A/C, and of course a bathroom... but how often do you get to share a shower down the hall? You may bump into a ghost while enjoying a little piece of history. We also have twenty modern hotel rooms that have been improved more recently with new T.V.'s, Beds, A/C's, and Windows. We do have plans to remodel all bathrooms but Rome wasn't built in a day. We also have a full service restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner 365 days a year along with a full service saloon. The Murphys Historic Hotel is also within walking distance to over 20 different wine tasting rooms and our community park. While you are here please let me know how we are doing. We hope to see you soon!Sincerely, Brian ... more   less
