“Super quiet, comfortable, and clean!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Loved our first stay here! The condos are very conveniently located, and we loved how quiet and peaceful they were. They're so close to downtown Estes, but just a block from the hustle and bustle - and it makes all the difference. We didn't have to worry about driving around and finding parking all weekend, because we could just walk everywhere! The condos were super clean, quiet, and very comfortable. Staff was more than friendly and accommodating. They will take your picture on the big chair out front and print copies for you, at no charge! I thought that was a nice touch. The continental breakfast had tons of options - cereals, fresh fruit, muffins, bagels, pastries, juice, coffee - it was just what we needed. Didn't get a chance to use the pool/hot tub (forgot to pack bathing suits), but the facilities were all very clean and well maintained.
It was really great to see that the Estes community has been recovering from the September flood, and we were happy to spend some time and money reinvesting in this beautiful mountain town. We'll definitely be coming back, and staying here! Next time we'll bring our bathing suits ;)

Kimberly,
Thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the compliments on our friendly staff, clean rooms and our breakfast. I would also like to thank you for supporting Estes Park and our local businesses. I am glad you had a chance to get your picture taken in our BIG rocking chair. We look forward to you and your family returning to Estes Park and staying with us again. Don't forget your swimming suit on your next visit, the pool is heated to a perfect 86 degrees!

This hotel is great, when we arrived we were greeted with the friendliest staff. Upon opening the room we immediately saw the cute balcony overlooking the river, such a tranquil location! On top of that the room was great and even had a connecting room for the friends we had traveled with!

Highly recommend Murphys river lodge!! Planning the next visit soon...

Room Tip: Choose the rooms overlooking the river!

Becky,
Thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the compliment on our friendly staff. Our river rooms are very popular with having a deck or balcony on Fall River to relax and listen to the water flow. We look forward to you returning and staying with us again soon!

What an amazing place. Went for a girls trip and am already planning a family trip back. Adorable and CLEAN rooms right by the river and within walking distance to downtown Estes! Can't get any better than that! Staff was A-MAZING! The big chair out front is a great place for photos.

This place is wonderful! The condos are the perfect size and beautifully done inside. It is very clean and cozy! The atmosphere by the river is beautiful. The staff was so great to us and went above and beyond to make us feel right at home. The morning breakfast was perfect. We would absolutely come back and stay again. This is our new favorite spot in Estes! Perfect to walk to anything in Estes:)

A few friends and I stayed here for one night to get away from it all. The river flowed right by our unit and was breathtaking. The condo itself was newly updated, felt like a completely new room. Bed was very comfortable and the staff was so friendly and helpful. The location is just a block walk from down town Estes, where we had a great dinner at a yummy steak/burger place. I will be staying here again with my family.

I had a great time. The employees are very respectable and informative. If I had any questions or needed directions they would help me out on finding my destination and had great advice on places to explore. Hands down a Ten!

The stay was terrific. Unfortunately, we had some noisy neighbors, but were quickly relocated to another suite per staff. I felt as if the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We would not hesitate to stay here again!
