Couldn't have been more pleased with our group(6) stay at Murphy's Resort. Lots to do at the resort itself, not to mention in town and at RMNP. We used the provided grills and had a BBQ one night for dinner, while playing corn hole. The heated pool was nice, and its great that the hot tub was adult only. The... More

We stayed at the hotel for a overnight get away. The spotless room was very enjoyable, the firm bed comfy, the magnificent view captured it all. Seeing a bald eagle fly across Lake Estes from the dining room at the restaurant during breakfast capped off a great stay!

Friendly staff, iffy internet access, lots of onsite activities including grills, pool, hot tub (for over 18 only), cornhole, shuffleboard, board games. Rooms are a little old, but clean, and really you're not here to stay in your room. Our room included a king bed, sofa, fridge, microwave, and flat screen television.

We booked this hotel at the last minute and we're pleased with the place and the owners who were so friendly. The queen room was spacious and so clean! We got a good night's rest as the beds and pillows were so comfy. Location was great - very near to park entrance. Would definitely stay here again when in Estes.

Comfortable, inexpensive and clean. Close the Rocky Mountain National Park, near downtown Estes. Comparative to motel prices but better than others in town. I'll go back. It's difficult to find inexpensive rooms that aren't dumps and this place is a safe choice.

"Not a Resort at all" over price hotel, Pretty pricy for a two night stay. Management not the friendliest "male". Pool was closed for a day (24hrs) due to someone getting sick in it. So the kids were not happy not being able to swim. Was told we could go the the other location 2 miles away. Will look for... More

When a guest throws up in a pool that is beyond our control. The boy swallowed a lot of water and threw up in the pool. We felt it best for the other guests to clean the pool and sanitize it. We did offer to let you swim at our sister hotel. That's the best we could do. We are... More
