Wow! I was immediately struck by the lovely façade of the building. I could tell it would set the tone for our whole Murphy’s adventure. The lobby and saloon area are decorated in keeping with the era of the building, very cute. Also I noticed an ATM tucked in the corner of the lobby. That came in very handy over the weekend. The outside eating area is surrounded with wonderful roses and gardens that are so sweet and romantic at meal times. The saloon and it's staff were also wonderful. We even met some of the locals in the saloon. They were great and very friendly. The tasting rooms, shopping and wineries in the area were all REALLY FANTASTIC. I love how this hotel is located right on the main street, very easy walk to at least 15 of the tasting rooms, restaurants and wonderful shops. Oh and down behind the hotel is a fantastic little stream and public park, very quaint. This weekend was to celebrate my turning 40 and it was definitely the best birthday weekend I have ever had. We will definitely be back to Murphy’s soon.
- 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
