“Bad sleep”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

I came with a group and it was decided to stay at the Murphys Inn Motel, due to the group deal we got. I would give the place a 2.5 star rating if allowed, and would normally round up to 3 stars as the desk people were very friendly and helpful and were the best part of the stay. However, the rooms, while clean are so out dated, and everybody in our group got terrible sleep (bad mattresses &noisy, paper-thin walls). Since the most important thing to me is a clean room and a good night sleep, I have to round my rating down. There were about eight people in our group, and we all joked the first night as pretty much nobody was able to sleep more than 5 hours (I got about 4). We just thought it was a fluke, anxiety or something, but the same thing happened the next night. I was so tired during the departing drive and had to come home Sunday and take a nap.

The rooms are spacious and clean. Not a lot of amenities, tv's are old screens and limited, poor quality. That said, staff is friendly and helpful. There is free wifi, I definitely recommend it if in this area.

When we arrived in town later in the evening (after dinner), we weren't optimistic that we would find much. But the Murphy's Inn Motel's "VACANCY" sign was lit so we went in.

Instead, we were told that the Inn was full ($125 per night) but the $200 per night partner Resort Inn just up the street had vacancies. "Why did you have the vacancy light lit here", we asked. "We're baiting you!" was the flippant response.

Gee thanks. Thanks for the hostile reception.

We stayed at Murphy's Inn for one night. Our room was clean and very nicely appointed ( the bathroom walls could have been wiped down around the toilet, but all else was very nice. The front desk clerk who is there in the afternoon through the evening was very accommodating and extremely kind and helpful

We stayed here one night, it was very quiet, clean, good wi-fi and friendly staff. The beds were comfortable, within walking distance to the downtown where by you can go wine tasting. Would stay again.

The staff at the motel was great. Would stay there again. The location is perfect and the rooms were clean. Perfect for shopping or going to a concert. It was very hot and they had a pool to cool off in and the air conditioning worked great.

If I had taken notice of trip advisor reviews we would never have stayed there. So glad we did, nice clean rooms, easy walking distance to Murphy's quaint friendly little town. Would love to go back one day. Cheap breakfast adjacent to Inn. Ask for smaller servings!
Staff at the inn were friendly and helpful.
