My husband and I stayed here for a family reunion in Murray. Luckily, we were very close to the hospital, as my brother-in-law had medical issues that sometimes require emergent care. We couldn't have been better located. Our air conditioner made some noise the first night we stayed, and the management took care of this problem promptly and also compensated...

I stay here every time I go to Murray on business and have gotten to know the owners and staff and just love this place. The last visit I was visited by an orange and white little kitty and it took all I could do not to adopt it and take it home. I think it is a stay and...

We found this property on Trip Advisor and chose it based on the ratings. Ignore the terrible reviews, they are 7-8 years old. I was greeted at the desk by the owner, who is very nice. The room was small, but impeccably clean and appointed with most of the amenities of the chain hotels. It has nice character, a good...

When I was a kid I enjoyed traveling with my family. I have fond memories of Mom and Dad loading up the Galaxy 500 and heading out for family vacation. Since I was the youngest, I would many times sit in the front seat (before seatbelts) between Mom and Dad with my older brothers in the back seat. In the...

We came down to Murray to spend the weekend with our son and future daughter-in-law, who is a Murray State student. We stayed here and absolutely fell in love! It is clean, cozy and I loved the retro feel our room had! The staff was very pleasant and made our short stay a joy. So much so, we are heading...

I have traveled and stayed in a lot of motels, but none can even come close to Murray Plaza. The best well kept, up to date with all anyone would need in a room.
