So, after a lot of apprehension about staying at this hotel we decided to go ahead and give it a try. We were spending a lot on hotels during this vacation, so the price of $100/night was appealing. We stayed in the "renovated" wing.The rooms are defiantly in need of up-dating. The walls were paneled, the bedspread was worn and pilly. The room woudn't win any awards but it was clean. The bed was firm and comfortable. Bring your own pillow theirs are lumpy.The bathroom was small and clean, although the shower liner/wall was beginning to peel up in one corner. Even with that, there wasn't anything disgusting.
We ate dinner at the restaurant on the patio. It was really lovely. We had a chicken stuffed with artichoke that was ok, but not great. It was a little over cooked. The service was very good. We enjoyed the patio so much we went back for breakfast. The breakfast was much better, the hash browned potatoes were really good.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Murphys Historic Hotel is the longest continually operated hotel in California. The Hotel was built in 1856 and we try to keep our nine historic rooms as close to that time period as possible. If you are to stay within the Historic Hotel you are without T.V., Phone, A/C, and of course a bathroom... but how often do you get to share a shower down the hall? You may bump into a ghost while enjoying a little piece of history. We also have twenty modern hotel rooms that have been improved more recently with new T.V.'s, Beds, A/C's, and Windows. We do have plans to remodel all bathrooms but Rome wasn't built in a day. We also have a full service restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner 365 days a year along with a full service saloon. The Murphys Historic Hotel is also within walking distance to over 20 different wine tasting rooms and our community park. While you are here please let me know how we are doing. We hope to see you soon!Sincerely, Brian ... more less
