We went to Murphys to pick up a wine shipment at one of the local wineries and figured we might as well spend the night, since we would be doing some 'tasting' while there. We had been wanting to check this place out and they had a vacancy...it worked.
We had a small room above the Bistro patio...you could hear the chatter, but it was all very civilized and not too noisy at all. The room was clean and well-maintained, but space was a premium, and I wouldn't choose that room for more than a one-night stay. The small balcony was about the length of a queen-sized bed and about 3 feet wide. OK for two to sit and have a glass of wine; had to stand up to see over the rail. WiFi worked fine...no TV or phones in the rooms.
Desk people were helpful and courteous and made some recommendations for wineries and restaurants.
