Murphy's Resort at Estes Park
Ranked #4 of 29 Hotels in Estes Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This is far from a five star resort, but it is a truly excellent value with nice beds, nice views, flat screen tv, dvd player - with solid dvd library at front desk, very solid continental breakfast, fridge, microwave, coffee maker.
We were in a lake view king, which was spacious and comfortable. They also have a lot of gas grills and are just up the street from a huge safeway.
Extremely friendly staff.
We will definitely return and highly recommend this as a good place to stay in Estes Park.

Spent Labor Day weekend at Murphy's Resort and had a great stay. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Saturday night they hosted a Bar-B-Q and had live music. Looking forward to our next visit.

The Murphy's Resort in Estes Park is a wonderful experience. The rooms are totally remodeled
with new mattress,comfortable decor, flat screen, mini refrigerator, microwave, internet,clean,
well kept. The pool and hot tub are new, picnic tables, and breakfast in the morning. It is the
best we've stayed over many year's in Estes Park.

This is a great place to stay! Even with plenty of people around it was nice and quiet. It was perfect for family because we could relax and the kids could have fun with minimal effort. We played at the playground on site, walked over to the lake which is beautiful and close, swam in the pool and enjoyed the hot tub. We loved that there are so many grills to use and the grounds are beautiful and there are so many improvements and nicely designed elements being added. Our kids loved getting to choose movies to borrow as well. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of variety which is important to us. They were constantly checking it so nothing ran low or out. It's in a nice open and bright room which is kept extremely clean. The managers were super helpful with recommending places for us to eat in town based on the type of food and price range we offered. They were generally friendly and interested. We talked to the owners who are great people and described some of their ideas and future plans. We look forward to returning and seeing them develop! Our room had an amazing view; it looked right over the lake and the mountains are an amazing backdrop. The brand new mattress and the bedding was super comfortable. We got an amazing nights sleep. It was the perfect way for us to spend the last night of our vacation! We talked to several other people who had also really enjoyed their stay. Great choice!

Room Tip: We loved our room on the south side with the view of the lake and mountains.

We were just there a couple weeks ago (coming from Colorado Springs) and were so pleased with the place, we're giving serious consideration to making a second go next weekend. The value can't be beat. Ok, sure, so maybe a piece of furniture or two in the room clearly stands out as dated, but who cares. The place is CLEAN, which is most important to me. Even the dated bathroom fixtures- I have no idea how they got it all so clean, but it's impressive. The rooms are also bigger than most new rooms. You can almost see their priority list of upgrades, and I have to say they got it exactly right. I'd totally take a new mattress over a new end table piece or dresser or random chair. Frankly, I kinda hope they leave the place EXACTLY as is. Too many more upgrades and I'm afraid they'd up the price. I like it just how it is.

Breakfast is awesome, too. More than enough. I didn't see any complaints in the few reviews i browsed, but if there are any, I guarantee its wrong.

Oh, and there was an elk in the grass area in our first morning. Such a COOL place, clean, great value, love it!!!!!!!

Ours was a two-couple trip and we got adjacent rooms with a view of the lake out back. We have no complaints whatsoever, and the staff was more than courteous. The complimentary continental breakfast was fine, and the attentive staff was efficient in keeping all items stocked. The new owner is in the process of remodeling all the rooms, but there was no mess or noise anywhere on the premises. I'm looking forward to returning to Estes Park next summer, and we will definitely stay there again. And they will probably be finished with their improvements by then, although we will stay there even if not. I would recommend this resort to anyone who will be staying in Estes Park.

Room Tip: I think our rooms had the best view out back with Lake Estes.

This property is under new ownership and management, it use to be an EconoLodge. As an individual who loves restoring dilapidated things, I can’t believe how much the new ownership has done to this property in less than half a year. I remember driving by the old EconoLodge this past winter when it was abandoned and falling apart, EVERYTHING was out of date. Everything about the property has been updated. The exterior of the entire property has been completely overhauled with new paint, roofing, gas grills, landscaping, and the pool that was completely unusable when purchased has been completely redone and looks great! They’ve added a new workout facility and expanded the communal area for their HUGE continental breakfast that has something for everyone. You will not leave the continental breakfast thinking that you’ll need something else to eat before starting your day. The rooms have all brand new furniture, TVs, and paint. While the place is great the way it is, I can’t wait to see how much more they do with the property between now and the next time I stay there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Lake Estes for the best views.
