The staff here were incredibly nice from day one. We stayed for three nights and never had a complaint about service. When we reported that a couple lights in our room were out, they were able to get it fixed for us while we were out for the day. We also really appreciated the community feel of the resort, from...

The room was super clean, so they have a great housekeeping team! That's really it. It's a motel-like place and we found that to be disappointing but if you have kids, it would be fun in the summer as they have a pool and other family friendly activities. The room lacked so many modern amenities we are used to having...

We had a lake view room and it was nice to see the lake and mountains in the morning. The owners go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Clean and comfortable room. Thanks Murphy's Resort for making our first time visit great!

This is the third time we stayed at this hotel. We had strong impressions on our past visits. This visit was disappointing. We were woken up by barking dogs in the room next door on our first morning. They barked for more than 20 minutes. We had only cold showers two out of three days. When we brought these concerns...

I can boast about the room, the views, the properties, etc.... , but there are plenty of other reviews for everybody to read about that. Instead, what I'm going to talk about is how the property managers (Loretta and Bruce) went above and beyond to salvage what started out as a nightmare for us. I'll preface this story with explaining...

My husband and I stayed one night using a Living Social promotion. The price was low enough to make me a little nervous about what we might find. However, there was absolutely nothing to worry about. We got exceptionally friendly service when I called to make reservations, when I called about a late arrival, and each time we interacted with...

We loved Murphy's Resort at Estes Park. The rooms were clean and the beds so comfortable. We enjoyed the continental breakfast; meeting so many neat people from all over the globe. Staff were friendly and attentive. We even ran into people we know from high school. We will be staying here again on our return visit to Estes Park!

We stayed here this past weekend for a quick getaway as a couple. Our room was clean and comfortable, we enjoyed that there was a couch so we could play the board games we borrowed from the check-in desk. I loved the fact that you could rent out board games and movies, perfect for snowy weekends. The continental breakfast was...

As the title says, this place is at a great location. It overlooks the mountains and less than 5 miles from the rocky mountain national park. The outside appearance of the hotel seems little old - just like any other mountain resort. They have continental food for breakfast, nothing but the regular muffins and danishes. But note: they do not...

The room was roomy and clean. We had the two queen beds which were pretty comfy and lots of cozy pillows too. Check in was quick and painless. We went to the distillery across the street which was a a lot of fun. We would stay here again.
