We were looking for a comfortable stay with our one day visit to Murray State. Although the hotel may have a dated look, the room was freshly painted and bathroom fixtures were updated. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.

We stayed for just one night on our way to an historic event in Tennessee. We arrived very late and left pretty early, so we didn't spend much time at the motel. However, we found it nicely located and easy to find, pleasant, attractive, friendly, and clean. Our room had two beds, a refrigerator, and a microwave, a clean and...

I just love staying here. I adore the bathrooms. They are right out of my childhood and take me back in time. The rooms are simple, modest and incredibly clean. I also love the staff and look forward to my visits every time.

We have just completed a three week road trip covering 11 states and have therefore stayed in a number of hotels during this trip. This review is therefore written from a comparative viewpoint and it is hoped to give an objective view of the hotel. The lady at checkin was great as were other staff who we had interaction with...

This is an old motel right in the heart of Murray. That said, the room was very large and everything was recently updated. The furniture, carpet, the furniture and paint was all new. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is also #20 to $30 a night cheaper than most other places in Murray. This will be the place...

We chose Murray Plaza Lodge after reading the previous reviews on TripAdvisor. We are happy to report that our experience was excellent. The room was smaller than the modern "big box" hotels, but it was clean, neat and comfortable. My wife smokes and there was a very nice area where she was allowed to smoke and it also included an...

It is one the most enjoyable hotel stays we've recently had. Being privately owned by a local couple, you can tell they take extreme pride in this facility. They are very warm and welcoming. The rooms are very homey with the white cabinets, etc. and extremely clean. The first thing I look at in a hotel is the bathroom grout....

This place is privately owned and they are very involved with all operations and the pride shows. It is the cleanest room and bathroom I have seen in years! Tho the room is small, the atmosphere, quietness and again the cleanliness is the most important thing to most travelers. We will stay here anytime we can! What a pleasant place!

Love staying at this quaint motel when we go to Murray to watch MSU football games. It's always clean and the owners are so friendly. You can't go wrong. They even took our name and number to call us if they had any Cancellation for homecoming weekend. We have a room scheduled at another hotel but would rather stay here.
