my wife and i have stayed with loretta and bruce (property managers) before at thier other hotel, and these folks relly care, not only for thier guests, but really care about every thing, they treated us like we were the most important folks that ever walked in the door, from the minute we checked in till the minute we checked out, the room was extremly clean, and extra touches that let us feel welcome, i love staying at any murphys propertys in estes park, because they are down to earth and caring and above all HONEST!!! trust me you will not be discouraged at all, thier breakfast is way more than you expect for a hotel, and the view here is really cool, and it is spread out as well, plenty of parking and hardly any niebor room noise and we enjoyed our selves totaly, we will always try to book a room with these fine folks and always look forward to seeing thier smile when we walk in the door, thanx managment and the house keeping staff, also i left my phone charger in my room and wow i got an email telling me i did and when im in town next i could pick it up wow who else would care enough to do that, stay here and youll see that im right

We bought a 2 night stay package as part of a Living Social deal, and we upgraded to a room with a fireplace. We have had a lot of bad luck with similar online deals, so we did not have high expectations, but we were pleasantly surprised.

The rooms are not fancy, but they are very clean and very comfortable. We were surprised at the big suite we had and the nice extras. The bed was much more comfortable than most hotel beds. We had a living room, small kitchen (full size refrigerator, microwave & stove top)/dining room, 2 TV's, a private patio with a grill, 2 person Jacuzzi tub, shower and comfortable bedroom. The fireplace was double sided, in the living room and the bedroom. There were utensils and supplies in the kitchen, and would have been convenient to eat in our room. The continental breakfast was nice and they had DVD's and games you could use for free. The outside facilities were also plentiful with a pool, hot tub, grills, tables, etc.

We did have trouble with our fireplace and they got it working on New Years Eve. The owner, Bruce, offered us a new room or to show us how to fix it when it acted up. They were very apologetic about not being able to get a repair person there on a holiday, and wanted to make sure we were happy.

I would definitely stay here again. I think it would be a nice place to stay for several days in the summer time when you can take advantage of the outdoors and you want to be able to fix some of your own meals.

We are a family of 4 (two little boys, 3 and 5) and we travel quite a bit. But this was our first time in the mountains in winter as a family and I was a bit worried. For the price we paid we normally don't expect much. Murphy's Resort over exceeded our expectations though. The rooms were beautiful, spacious, clean and warm. We had a fireplace and a jacuzzi for two in our bedroom. Breakfast was great and included. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals and there is a Safeway a few mins away. Also a Starbucks you can probably walk to in summer. TV in each room and a great selection of movies (DVDs) to watch. Lots of things to do (ice skating, sledding, indoor rope climbing, movie theater...).

We greatly appreciate everyone's kindness and effort to make us feel at home.

We stayed at Murphy's Resort for a quick New Year trip and were amazed at the hospitality. Bruce and Loretta manage the place and immediately made us feel at home. Our room had a two-person jacuzzi and fireplace that was split between the bedroom and living room. Breakfast was included and our room even had a kitchen with all the amenities needed to cook and serve meals.
Less than five minutes away are an ice- skating rink, indoor rock-climbing facility and downtown Estes Park. Rocky Mountain National Park is fifteen minutes away.
While we loved our room, the best part of the experience was the feeling of "home" that Bruce and Loretta give out. We hope to come back in summer!

I spent two relaxing evenings at Murphy's Resort, though I wish it could have been longer. The hotel staff and owners were very welcoming, friendly, and the rooms were clean. One thing that I appreciated was the DVD collection the property has for guests to check-out. I would highly recommend Murphy's Resort for anyone, especially couples, to escape for the weekend (or any time of the year).

First off, my family and I chose Murphy's Resort because, we work all week for the holidays and wanted to escape for one day. Murphy's Resort was one of the few places in Estes that allowed us to book one night stays during New Year's Eve. Boy am I glad I did!

Their hospitality is bar none. We stayed one night, but were greeted with nothing but cordialness and hospitality. We rented several movies, getting several recommendations from the woman who checked us in (I forgot to grab her name - but boy was she sweet as heck!).

We stayed in the Flowers Room - with the private tub. It worked phenomenally and was very relaxing. The room was extremely cleanly and inviting! I loved the little detailed touches they took; the cute ways they folded the towels and kleenex! They also provided plush pillows - and lots of them for each bed - and plenty of soap for the bathroom.

Did I mention they made sure we were greeted by Stella, the black poodle, upon checking out? She's very loving and will give you several licks, so I hope you like dogs! We sure do!

We stay in Estes every New Year's Eve and will make sure to return to Murphy's Resort!

Thank you Murphy's Resort for an unforgettable, wonderful, and relaxing experience!

As a side note, it's also a short drive to all stores and shops, which we always love walking too. This time of year, coming after the flood, it was great to see everyone open. In Boulder on New Year's Day, everyone is shut down, but not in Estes. Every where you go, the store owners are thanking you for your business and for coming in to their stores to shop or look around. I love how friendly the people in Estes are; this is why we come up every year.

Room Tip: The Flowers Room was fantastic. The private jetted tub helps relax those weary bones and is perfect...

Tami, I appreciate your review, so does Stella. She is becoming popular. Our house keepers are very good at putting a personal touch on each room. I will be sure to share these words of encouragement with them. As for the gal at the front desk your referring to, I believe that was Melissa, she is phenomenal, we appreciate her. Thank you. We sure hope you come see us again in the near future. Yes, all of Estes Park is grateful for the support that you and others bring. Your business isn't taken for granted. Thank you, return soon!

We were in desperate need of a New Years Eve getaway, and had heard so much about the beauty of Estes Park, so we decided to try to make it happen. My wife's relatives had recommended Murphy's Resort. Based solely upon their recommendation, we reserved a room for our family of 5. We got in around 9PM on NYE, and were ready for a few days of adventure and relaxation. From the moment we pulled in, the staff of Murphy's was amazing. They embody the old fashioned customer service mindset that so many establishments can't seem to figure out. Anything we needed was accommodated with utmost satisfaction, and without the feeling that we were a burden. We know that with 3 young children, we are not the "perfect" customers, but we were treated with kindness and amazing hospitality. The beds were extremely comfortable, the room was clean, with plenty of room for all of us. We will be back hopefully soon!
