We chose Murray Plaza Lodge after reading the previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We are happy to report that our experience was excellent. The room was smaller than the modern "big box" hotels, but it was clean, neat and comfortable. My wife smokes and there was a very nice area where she was allowed to smoke and it also included an...

It is one the most enjoyable hotel stays we've recently had. Being privately owned by a local couple, you can tell they take extreme pride in this facility. They are very warm and welcoming. The rooms are very homey with the white cabinets, etc. and extremely clean. The first thing I look at in a hotel is the bathroom grout.... More

This place is privately owned and they are very involved with all operations and the pride shows. It is the cleanest room and bathroom I have seen in years! Tho the room is small, the atmosphere, quietness and again the cleanliness is the most important thing to most travelers. We will stay here anytime we can! What a pleasant place!

Love staying at this quaint motel when we go to Murray to watch MSU football games. It's always clean and the owners are so friendly. You can't go wrong. They even took our name and number to call us if they had any Cancellation for homecoming weekend. We have a room scheduled at another hotel but would rather stay here.

Rooms are small but very nice. They have remolded the rooms in recent years, and the Murray Plaza Lodge is the best bargain in town. It has been in Murray for decades (around 60 years), so it is a charming part of Murray's history. It used to be called the Plaza Court. You should stay here.

Some reviews seem to overstate this motel. I cannot say I was disappointed, nor was I overly impressed. The cost was reasonable and value was fair. Staff was friendly, room was clean and moderately updated. The area appeared safe and the staff was friendly and courteous. In a pinch we would stay again.

We love this place! We first discovered The Lodge during our daughter's visit to Murray State. Their prices were great and in reading the reviews we thought we would try it and absolutely fell it love with it. We have since stayed here 3 times and will continue to stay here as long as our daughter is a student at... More

We have been staying here several times a year for the past five years while we've had kids at Murray State. This is, by far, our FAVORITE place to stay.

I remember this place from college in the 70s. Came to town for a reunion so it seemed fitting to stay. Expect a small room with basic amenities. It was clean and comfortable, though I question the choice of a couple of hard plastic chairs for the little table. Wi fi was very weak. All room entrances are exterior if... More
