Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have stayed at the Murphys Inn numerous times and have always had a positive experience. The staff are friendly, welcoming and professional. I read a few reviews saying the reception was rude, in all the times we've stayed at this hotel we have NEVER experienced that type of treatment. Staff have always been warm and welcoming towards us, even other family members and friends who have stayed here on other occasions.

The room and bathroom are a good size and clean; however, they are not updated. ( I would suggest bringing your own pillow though because I don't find the pillows that comfortable.) For us, the rooms are fine because we are just there to sleep and not spend much time in the room....too much to do in Murphys to be stuck indoors!! We have never dealt with a noise issue either as experienced by other reviewers. The hotel has an outdoor pool that we have used during the summer months. When we have stayed during the summer the pool has always been clean and well maintained. The hotel location is right on Main St. so you can walk to all the shops, restaurants and wineries. For the price, location and hotel cleanliness you can't beat the price in Murphy's, we paid $89/night. Keep in mind, this is an economy hotel, if you want 4 Star, find something else.

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.
