We travel a lot with our food truck and we stay in a lot of hotels, this one ranks as #1. It was extremely clean, the owner was kind and very friendly. We would highly recommend this establishment. The room smelled great, the bathroom was very clean and had a lovely pedestal sink and lots of little extras. Well worth... More

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. The owners and staff greet us by our first names and are always so welcoming and friendly....it really does feel like we are "coming home" each time we check in....they... More

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

Just needed a place to sleep for the night while travelling. The Murray Plaza Lodge fit the bill just fine. It falls into the more "budget" hotel category, and certainly isn't fancy, but is clean, safe, easy to access, hand had everything I needed. All "appliances" were functional as well - TV, shower, coffee maker, heating/cooling, etc. I might have... More

Have stayed here several times. No doubt this is the best motel in west Kentucky. Privately owned. Owners are the most courteous and helpful in all aspects. Their staff are the same s well. All rooms are well kept, clean, and up to date. Last but not least the prices are the best you will find. Highly recommend Murray Plaza... More

If you are looking for a super clean and quiet place to stay, Murray Plaza Lodge is your place! Our room was super clean with all the basic amenities needed. Free WiFi included. The price was very reasonable also. If we are ever in need of a room in Murray again, we will stay again.

An old style "motor lodge" that has been updated but kept the charm. Extremely clean! Beds were comfortable -- full size only -- and bathroom was small but very well appointed. AC unit in the wall was great and the weather was super hot. Very nice inn keeper and other staff. No breakfast but individual cup coffee maker in the... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Murray Plaza Lodge, July 14 - 16, 2016. The room we stayed in was clean, cheerful, and had everything we needed. We requested a late check out, and the owner was very willing to accommodate our request. The grounds, gardens, and gazebos make this a "landmark destination" in Murray, KY.

Fairly well maintained. For a property I would estimate built in the 50's, it has been renovated, and well maintained. As for most roadside property's built in this error the rooms, and bathrooms are small, but comfortable. The front desk help was very friendly. The only complaint the carpet in my room was stained.
