We had a bad experience with a reservation due to a software problem but the manager Mike straightened it out for us. We had an excellent time at the Murpheys Suites and all of the staff was friendly and helpful! I loved the little extras too like Oreos at the reception desk, cappuccino, mini donuts and OJ delivered in the morning. It's not fancy but it's some extra comfort which is nice! We will definitely come back in the future!!!

I had friend visit from AZ. Great place to stay. Clean, quiet, and great location. If you are interested in wine tasting it's the perfect location. Lots of wineries and walking distance. Tanya is extremely helpful and friendly. She goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful!!

We stumbled into Murphys Inn on the way from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe and couldn't have been happier to find such a welcoming motel by chance. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room, great location just an easy stroll from wonderful shops and cellar doors, what a great find!

We also enjoyed an excellent meal at Loruccios Italian Restaurant, which is just down the road and we would gladly return to both if the opportunity ever presents itself.

Well done Murphys Inn (and what a lovely town it is too!)

So glad to hear you found us! You are right, we are a perfect stayover between Yosemite and Tahoe. Highway 4 is a beautiful drive to Tahoe.

We were in town for grandchildren's graduation, looking for someplace clean, quiet and comfortable. We scored on all counts, with the added bonus of the very helpful Tanya.
She was over the top in helpfulness--we had to get a fax off to our son, and had problems on the receiving end. Tanya was patient and persistant--and we got thru. Made for a very pleasant experience all around.

I can be particular and have an eye for detail. The rooms were clean and comfortable. My plans were for only one night, but I would have been glad to stay for more. Within walking distance to many businesses. The staff was helpful and friendly. Dealing with Tanya was a nice no hassle experience. If I'm ever in Murphys again I will book a room at the Murphys Inn Motel.

Stayed at the motel Sunday June 8th.
Kyle checked us in and did a fine job. He recommended Firewood restaurant and it was just what we had in mind. Thanks again Kyle.
Unknown to him though were the following issues:
Toilet did not work properly and shower head had only one setting in the massage mode.
We would stay there again as long as there is assurance of no bathroom malfunctions!
Location was convenient and value good for the area.

Room Tip: Ask for assurance that the room has been checked for all amenities working properly.
