“Still a solid value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This was about my 3rd experience with HI EX in Murphy. Great staff, fun and friendly. Quiet if you get a high floor and always clean.

Room Tip: The hotel is a bit hard to find. It is on top of the hill overlooking the highway.

I stayed here several years ago and now am back in the area working again. Upon my return, I found the hotel to continue to be clean and well kept. The second shift front desk staff member was a face I remembered, as she had worked there for several years, and was the same friendly helpful person I remembered from my stays before! My room was almost perfect, with only one request...I think it is time to update the mattresses! And thank you for still allowing us to have smoking rooms!!! Upon my return trips to Murphy, I will definitely stay here again!

I needed a place to stay for 2 nights while in Murphy on business. The HI Express was perfect.
Easy to find, but several hundred feet off the highway so it was quiet. The staff was friendly, welcoming and readily available throughout my stay. The room was spacious, clean, the bed was very comfortable. Fresh coffee in the lobby 24 hours a day pls cookies and popcorn. The free internet access was fast, which made it possible to get plenty of work done, The breakfast buffet was great: scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, biscuits, gravy, hot cinnamon sticky buns plus cereal and fruit. A large indoor heated pool but the weather was especially nice so I opted for a late afternoon walk ,instead. I'll be back!

This hotel looks brand new, though we were told it is 6 or 7 years old. Everything was fresh and up-to-date looking. The breakfast room has almost anything you can think of---waffles, omelets, hot cereal, cold cereal, fruit, excellent coffee, bacon, link sausage---everything. The staff was exceptionally polite and helpful. The pool and hottub looked inviting, but we didn't have time to test the waters. The only negative we had was that the hotel is very high up from the road and difficult to see. The signage for the drive was not very eye-catching, and the entry road was rather dark and foreboding. Some additional lighting and signage would enhance the approach.

Room Tip: I doubt if there is a bad room. We were on the ground floor, very close to the pool where kids were...

It's off the highway with big rooms on three floors. They have a small hot breakfest that changes every day.Very nice people working day and nights.

Checked in late on 10/20/11. Front desk person very helpful. Their breakfast was good. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: The hotel is off the main street so we did not notice any problems with noise.

My mother and I stayed here one night on our way to visit the John C. Campbell Folk School. The service was excellent. The room was ready early and was clean. My mom used the pool for her water aerobics and found the temp just right. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast the next morning was fresh and adequate. Would stay here on future trips to Murphy.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views of the mountain color.
