Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Murphy's Resort was a wonderful hotel, and as the name says, was more like a resort in how friendly the staff were, how helpful, the cleanliness, everything. The scenery was breathtaking and it was my first time staying there, but I know I plan on going back. I've stayed in a lot of so called "high class, 5 star hotels" and none were, in my opinion, as great as Murphy's.

The front desk staff is awesome , friendly, knowledgable of the area, and very accommodating. If you are looking for a comfortable, spacious, clean room with a view, look no further. The included continental breakfast was great! Thank you!

I had such a great experience at Murphys Resort at Estes Park, the rooms were nice with a great view of the lake and mountains. The staff was excellent And very efficient. If your wanting to stay in and just chill back they have lots and lots of movies to choose from at the front. The continental breakfast is great and there is a lot to choose from. This is a great location cause you are close to town but not to close so you have a little more privacy and not so much noise,

Found Murphy's Resort easily. They provided us with a lovely room with a lake view. Had a wonderful stay. They also had a great selection of dvds that we enjoyed before going to bed and a delicious continental breakfast the next morning.

Our Lake View rooms are some of our most popular. With such a beautiful view of Lake Estes and being set further back from the road in a quieter location what's not to love! We have recently added more DVDs to our collection and now have 700+ to choose from! We hope you keep us in mind for your future visits to Estes Park.

Found this gem on Expedia as a friend and I were passing through Estes for the night. The front desk were very friendly and helpful with plenty of recommendations. Room was clean and beds were comfortable- don't know how much more you can ask for.. plus they have a great continental breakfast and free movies to rent if you would like. Only compliant would be the walls were pretty thin and we had to listen to our neighbor on speakerphone the good portion of the night and laughing pretty loud.

They do have a grill and nice little cook out area which is an added treat instead of eating at a restaurant for a meal.

Thank you for the compliments. I'm so sorry you had disturbances from your neighbors throughout the night. We want nothing less than total and complete satisfaction for all of our guests. The general manager does live on property and would have been more than happy to offer you another room in a quieter location. Next time you come back to visit Estes Park we hope you come stay with us again and we will do everything in our power to make sure you do not run into this issue again.

Great little motel! It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the newly renovated, large rooms are great! Very clean and surprisingly quiet. Great location on the main Hwy 34, but not right downtown. More near Estes Lake. Nice green area with a pool in the middle, fire pit, bbq grills, etc... The continental breakfast was typical and good.... cereal, fruit, pastries, bread, hard boiled eggs, coffee, milk... cold stuff kept in little see through fridge. Nice staff.
