Owners are wonderfully kind and caring. Entire property, both interior/exterior is immaculately clean (SPOTLESS!) and well maintained. Conveniently located on main strip (12th street) through Murray making walking to nearby businesses easy and saved money me on petrol. In addition to the amazing owners, staff members (Terry, Manda and Bonnie) are friendly, knowledgeable and sweet with warm inviting smiles and...

We stayed here 1st week of October. The grounds and building looked just like the photos. Yes the rooms are small by todays standards. This is an older motor court motel. It is impeccably kept and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. We're going back next week and will be staying here again. When my motorcycle group tours this...

My boyfriend and I stayed the night Saturday and were very surprised and pleased with our stay! We stayed in a pretty little mint green room with a queen size bed. The room was small, but very nice. We were happy to pay the rate that was asked of us, and that the room was smoke-free! I LOVED the corner...

While it is understandable that everybody has different opinion and it could be negative, slandering reviews like this is solely for attacking business owners rather than for advising other travelers. This review was written by a person who was not even supposed to be a guest. The room was reserved for one lady for two nights starting on Oct. 6...

I stayed there this weekend and will stay there again. It was Super Clean. You will never find a place any cleaner. Check in went well. They were very friendly. The beds were comfortable and I can not say one bad thing about the place. I hope they have a room available when I go back the next time.

Dear Guest: Thank you very much for your super nice review. The most great pleasure of running this business is to meet nice people like you. Murray is sometimes very busy on some weekends. Please let us know in advance if your visit is on weekends.

This motel is so clean and fresh this vintage motel looks like its brand new. Besides the room being perfect, the grounds are immaculate! A wonderful stay at a bargain price. The staff was equally outstanding. It is perfectly located on 12th St. - the main drag through town.

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...
