I love to stay at old hotels that are still in good shape or are undergoing renovation. The owners of the Murray are working hard to rejuvenate this hotel which is admirable considering that Silver City itself is in need of a boost.
Our June stay was pleasant even without air conditioning. (Don't let the mountain setting fool you, it still hits 90 and even 100 in Silver.) The room was small but well-appointed.
For breakfast you're given a credit voucher for a little restaurant around the block and the food there was decent.
I didn't mind paying $80 to $90 for the room. (It feels good to contribute to local historic preservation.) When I called to book the hotel for a return trip in July and was quoted a price in excess of $100, I looked elsewhere and found the Palace Hotel just down the block (see review).
