“First impressions were wrong”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

On first arrival this seemed a cookie cutter upscale motel - at a rather expensive price. My impression wasn't improved by breakfast: a donut and juice. The staff seemed rather shocked that I thought a donut (at my age of 61) was a very unhealthy way to start the day. The laundry was, I was informed broken. However this initial bleak view was quickly transformed. The room was large, if lacking individuality. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was excellent with a very powerful fan. There was lighting galore, decent wifi, plenty of plugs. There was an excellent swimming pool with a pleasant warm jacuzzi - as well as a tiny sauna and gym. The staff were really friendly and when my wife fell sick they were supportive and helpful. And they got the laundry working within hours. Really a good place to stay in Murphys, just lacking individuality.

The room was Clean and had plenty of ammenities. We stayed on a busy weekend when the hotel was booked solid and our room was still very quiet. It was a bit overpriced and on the outer edge of town. Not quite walking distance to the downtown wineries but close enough. The girl at the front desk was rude both when I called to ask when check in was and when we were checking in. Could have done without that.

4 of us stayed here for a concert at Ironstone. I thought it was overpriced but was limited in my choices for this night. Even though the room is set up to sleep 6, we only had 3 towels. We had no coffee with the tiny coffee pot. The air conditioning never completely cooled the room and the refrigerator was not turned on and took all night to get cold. My husband saw a giant stain on the mattress that could be seen through the sheet, right by his head. Ugh. If you are going to charge $180 for a room, you should try a little harder. The staff however was nice and accommodating with our many phone calls to the front desk.

I accompanied a friend who is seeking a vacation home in the Murphys area, We only needed a room for one evening. The motel appears to be very new. It was very clean. There was plenty of parking.The room for two was large The facility has an elevator which is helpful. We stayed on the second floor. There is no breakfast offered but they do bring a muffin and juice to your room in the morning if you are interested. We wanted to leave early and have breakfast at a local restaurant. The motel is located very close to the old downtown area. The staff were friendly and helpful. They provided some good restaurant recommendations.

This was our second year staying at the Murphys Suites. We only stayed one night both times. The location is a five minute walk from downtown Murphys, which has decent wine tasting and surprisingly good dining. The location itself leaves something to be desired with it's views of parking lots and location on the highway. But it may be the best lodging choice for the traveller looking for a clean room close to Sierra foothills towns. Close to Murphys and Angels Camp, a little too far for skiing. Clean room, friendly staff (local dog visiting the lobby was also friendly), scrapbookers the first weekend in November. Try Grounds or Alchemy for dinner but make reservations. 3.5 stars goes to 4 only due to my company for the night.

Stayed here one night after a concert at Ironstone. Easy to fine and nice clean room. The room looked a little dated for as new as the hotel looked. Great WiFi hookup and hot shower.
