Generously sized clean and well maintained rooms. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Exceptionally pet friendly. View of Lake Estes is absolutely beautiful at sunrise with a nice hot cup of coffee. Great for family's who want to enjoy all that Estes Park has to offer.

My initial impression of this location was that I would be hard pressed to call it a “resort”. However, it has just about everything you could want when it comes to staying at a resort including spectacular views of the surrounding Rockies. Murphy’s Resort is designed along the lines of the old motels of yesteryear. Parking is available right outside...

What a great trip to Estes spent with family and friends! Murphys Resort was great, the beds were very comfortable and the staff was awesom! The parade of lights on Friday was well worth putting up with the cold evening. We also had the opportunity to view many elk, a true highlight!

I booked this place as a means of getting two separate rooms so me and mom could get at least a little privacy. One night only while passing through. Room was clean exceeded my expectations for a motel style accommodation. This is not a "nice" place, but the people were very kind and the room was great. Me and mom...

My adult daughter and I stayed here during a girls weekend. It's a beautiful location with great views...and we didn't even splurge on a view room. It's an older motel with drive-up to your door parking. The lot could get a bit full but the rooms are nicely updated and maintained well. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and...

Stayed in the queen suite with a jacuzzi tub. Both rooms were large and clean. Jacuzzi tub was exactly what we needed. Rented a movie from the office and had some free popcorn. We also borrowed a game since it was chilly outside. If it had been warmer there were multiple locations on the property to sit outside and enjoy...

Murphy's Resort is, by far, the CLEANEST place we have ever stayed in Estes. I appreciate the great effort put in by the staff to make the room so nice and inviting. It was nice to arrive and have a glass of wine, served by the friendly staff! Will definitely return.
