I can't praise this place enough. We are murray state parents & have stayed at every place in murray except this one because it had always been booked when we in town. Until this weekend. A mom & pop motel. Super clean. Great rates. Wish we had found this 5 years ago but we will never stay anywhere else. Will... More

You get a discount if you are there for Murray State University visits. Reasonable rates. The suite is very nice with a king size bed in a seperate room from the queen size bed, with two bathrooms and... More

I stay here every time I go to Murray on business and have gotten to know the owners and staff and just love this place. The last visit I was visited by an orange and white little kitty and it took all I could do not to adopt it and take it home. I think it is a stay and... More

We found this property on Trip Advisor and chose it based on the ratings. Ignore the terrible reviews, they are 7-8 years old. I was greeted at the desk by the owner, who is very nice. The room was small, but impeccably clean and appointed with most of the amenities of the chain hotels. It has nice character, a good... More

When I was a kid I enjoyed traveling with my family. I have fond memories of Mom and Dad loading up the Galaxy 500 and heading out for family vacation. Since I was the youngest, I would many times sit in the front seat (before seatbelts) between Mom and Dad with my older brothers in the back seat. In the... More

We came down to Murray to spend the weekend with our son and future daughter-in-law, who is a Murray State student. We stayed here and absolutely fell in love! It is clean, cozy and I loved the retro feel our room had! The staff was very pleasant and made our short stay a joy. So much so, we are heading... More

I have traveled and stayed in a lot of motels, but none can even come close to Murray Plaza. The best well kept, up to date with all anyone would need in a room. The owners and their staff are more than helpful in all ways. This grounds are always groomed and well maintained. Home away from home in other... More

Stayed there for one night and it was just what we needed. The rooms were clean, freshly updated and well appointed. It's an old motel which has been renovated and updated but has a pleasant retro feel. It's and excellent value. There's no pool or free breakfast but we didn't need that! Staff was very friendly!

In Murray for MSU orientation with my daughter and forgot to book a room in advance, Murray Plaza Lodge had the last room in town. It was fine for a brief overnight stay. Older property, but room was clean. We could hear street traffic.
