“Best place to stay in the area”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We visited Crater of Diamonds state park on a family vacation, and booked two rooms at this hotel. I don't know that I would stay anywhere else in this town. The rooms were fine, very clean and what you'd expect for the price level. They could actually probably charge more based on the location and lack of choices in the small town of Murfreesboro. Both parties in our group had left things in the room and we were both called very quickly after check out to let us know we had left something behind.

The kid loved the pool, and it was saltwater, not chlorine.

I stayed for 2 nights with my teenaged children over the Memorial Day Weekend. The room was sweet & quaint with wallpaper and colors reflecting the Victorian era and the Victorian house that it is built around. It is an older style motel with 2 stories where people can drive up near the room. There are wonderful rocking chairs on the walkway in front of the rooms. My children were ambivalent about the pool as there were so many little children in it, but it was sparkling clean nonetheless. The room was clean and neat. My son LOVED the big armchairs in the room. Decor is a little dated, but that doesn't matter much when you are tired and weary of driving, or, digging at the Mine. The beds were comfortable, there was wi-fi, we had a microwave & mini-fridge in the room which was very helpful as we arrived later in the warm afternoon. We went to the market for snacks and drinks.

As we were rather dusty from the mine the following day we were able to do laundry; the inn has 2 laundry rooms one in each of the 2 buildings. In the morning there is an expanded continental breakfast with cold cereal, oatmeal, bread & bagels for toasting, biscuits & gravy, and juice/coffee/tea. If you want a more substantial meal then that,.....Buddy's cafe is across the street, but there are other choices for dinner or breakfast (Rattler's den, Los Agaves, Campbell's and Sonic drive-in). I would make a reservation, rather than take a chance and have to resort to one of the other nearby motels that are a little seedy looking. Because we came over Memorial Day, most of the town was closed on that Sunday & Monday except for the some of the restaurants, the store, and the Mine. It was a nice clean compact town, but an eye-opener for my children. We live in a much larger town, so they were able to see what growing up in a small town might be like.

Overall, it seems to be the best the town has to offer, and if we made a return trip, we would stay here again.

Room Tip: Any room is easily accessible, unless you have trouble with stairs, in which case you should ask for...

We stayed here to go to Crater of Diamonds State Park which is just a few miles down the road. This is by far the best hotel in the town. The staff is kind and friendly and accommodating. We called ahead because we were going to be early and they had the room ready for us. We stayed in the newer separate building and had a HUGE room, with 2 queen beds, a massive bathroom, big kitchen area and sitting area. We were absolutely satisfied and would definitely stay there again. The pool isn't huge but a great size for kids and it is salt water. The putt-putt golf course is fun and clean and a nice activity for the night. we loved this little town and enjoyed our visit.

Not being accustomed to the weather we we considering changing our 2 night stay to one. However, the hotel is so nice we stayed anyhow. Rooms are spacious and clean and breakfast was good. Nice clean pool and mini golf right here. We aren't traveling with kids but this is a great family hotel judging by all the familys here. Pleasant hearing happy laughter and giggles on small faces. Close to attractions and we enjoyed browsing in the few shops in the town square. The diner across the street is fantastic!

Nice family motel. Clean, but dated rooms. Comfortable beds, good shower. Older TV but reasonable channel selections. Small coffee maker in room. Well located. Limited, but adequate breakfast available and included. Biscuits and gravy, breads, juices, coffee, milk, etc. Inexpensive. Polite, helpful staff. Motel was full on this Friday, so glad we had reservations. Recommended.

It was very clean. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was good. I wish we had more time to enjoy the mini golf course. We stayed in a suite. It was huge and reasonably priced. If you are going to the crater of diamonds park you must stay here if you can.
