Murphy's River Lodge, Estes Park, provided a clean, enjoyable stay. Located on the edge of downtown, one is a quick walk from dining and a shopping, so no need to worry about parking. Rocky Mountain National Park and Moraine Park are a 15 minute ride. The room was amply sized for two, and the beds comfortable. With COVID precautions in place, housekeeping staff will provide clean towels daily upon request. My reservation was confirmed via phone call minutes after being placed, and the front desk staff was wonderful. They even sent a text to make sure we had everything we needed. Many thanks, Murphy's, and I look forward to my next stay!

The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was great! We loved it because it was so spacious and had everything we need. I loved the closet which had shelves in it. There was no dresser but because of the shelves for your clothes you knew you were not going to leave anything behind! Their "continental" breakfast was well laid out so you could just grab and go because of the new rules regarding COVID. They did an excellent job of accommodating everyone's needs. We'll be back again without a doubt!

Room Tip: Get a room with a patio that faces the river. Great view and the sound of the river is calming!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Murphy's for a night during an impromptu trip to Estes and we were very pleased! The location was super convenient to downtown and the room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating especially Linda who was serving breakfast. The river running through the property is quaint and peaceful and the picnic tables and swings were a nice touch. We would return again.

Thank you for providing us a clean comfortable room that gave us enough beds for a family. So many hotels just offer rooms with 2 beds. We need 3 beds and this was perfect! The service was super friendly.
