Murphy's Resort at Estes Park
Ranked #4 of 29 Hotels in Estes Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My fiance's son has been staying at Murphy's Resort for 7 months, working on the Big Thompson River project. He had nothing but good things to say about the Resort. We stayed in his room over a weekend and was pleasantly surprised on how much space was in the room, allowing for 2 beds, a couch, coffee table, dining table with 2 chairs, refrigerator, and microwave. We were very comfortable and would have liked to stay longer. Staff was great. We ran into Bruce on Sunday morning and had a nice chat. He was busy stocking the dining area with breakfast items. We enjoyed a great breakfast before heading out. All in all, a very nice experience at Murphy's Resort and I would certainly recommend them. A horseshoe pit was being installed while we were there and we have every intention of returning and getting a game or two in of horseshoes!

Room Tip: Some units have fireplaces. I would recommend those in the Fall/Winter.

Thanks for the huge compliments. We are glad you stayed with us.
We did have road crew stay with us to rebuild the highways.
It was their home away from home. Our staff treated them
like family. We are glad you also enjoyed your stay!!

We arrived and the guy at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Went and checked out our room and it was very clean and well kept. The room had a small fridge w/ freezer and had everything we could need. We checked out two movies from the from desk (which is awesome they have several movies you can check out) and then went into to town to have dinner. Town was less than a 5 minute drive. Murphy's Resort had comfortable beds, a friendly staff, a hot tub (we sadly didn't get to use) and a view of the lake. Overall great experience! The owner is a very nice guy and you can tell he runs a great resort with great people and amenities. I'll definitely recommend this place to my friends and family.

Did not use the hot tub? Well, that's reason to return! I hope you get that chance to escape and come see us. We are looking forward to opening our pool for the summer perhaps your next visit will be that of sunshine, pool and hot tub relaxation. Our staff appreciated your kind words. thank you for thinking of us, see you in the near future!

This was my my 6th time visiting Estes Park with my family in the last 7 years. We have stayed everywhere and in all types of lodging (hotels, condos, cabins) and Murphy's is where we will be staying from now on!! Definitely the most bang for your buck. The managers (Bruce and Loretta) have taken what used to be an old run down Econolodge and transformed it into the perfect family vacation spot. The rooms were plenty spacious and the beds EXTREMELY comfortable. They have a playground, grill/picnic area, volley ball court, a huge hottub (indoors) and what looked to be a very large pool but it was closed when we were there since it is outdoors. They also had free DVD rental which was cool because the only other place I know of in town to get movies is the Redbox. Bruce and Loretta made us feel so welcome and we were greeted in the office by their friendly pooch Stella! The front desk staff (Eliza and Casey) were both extremely friendly and very helpful. The continental breakfast had a wide variety to choose from and never left us disappointed! Hopefully we will be back at Christmas time and we will definitely be staying at Murphy's!! Thanks again you guys for helping to make our family vacation so wonderful!!

Room Tip: All rooms have a beautiful view of the mountains but certain rooms also have a view of Lake Estes

My fiance and I had made a trip to Murphy's Resort last July and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, so with our most recent trip to Estes Park it was no question to stay here again. Bruce and Loretta were extremely welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Just as the staff promised us in July, the renovations the resort went under turned out amazing. From the main office and breakfast area to the landscaping and pool - we can't wait to come back in the summer to lay by the pool and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lake Estes and the mountains!! We were pleased to see they still offered the continental breakfast, which had many healthy options to start the day. We will be visiting the resort again this summer!

My wife and I stayed two nights at Murphy's Resort for her birthday weekend. We were enthusiastically checked in by Casey and given a room towards the end of the second building. The lobby had an odd smell to it but was clean. Ample parking was available in front of the room which has an outside door. The room was clean and well decorated. We visited the sauna which is just across the parking lot. The sauna water temperature was warm but none of the jets really produced any water pressure.

The bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet.

We ate breakfast at the in-hotel continental breakfast. The food was fresh and the selection was reasonable - yogurt, cereal, hard boiled eggs, danish, juice, coffee.

Overall, the stay was comfortable and pleasant. I knocked down the rating to three stars for three reasons. First, I paid $300 for the two nights. The hotel is rather plain and a bit dated. It is still off-season and the hotel was nearly empty. I would have expected to pay $200 for this stay. Second, the sauna was a disappointment with its lack of working jets. Third, the hotel overall is still a bit dated. It has been renovated but could use some additional updates to windows, doors, and the sauna area.

Overall, we had a nice stay and at a lower price I'd stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us and I'm happy you found our room comfortable, our breakfast reasonable. I see you made your reservation online, please note we have various room types, I encourage you to contact the office for your next visit I would be happy to assist in finding the right room type & price. Our hot tub is very large, has been mistaken for a pool, we did not find anything wrong. In response to the odd smell in our office, we had just installed a newly varnished shelf or.., our home is attached to the office and it could have been my hubby's cooking. :-)
Look forward to your return.

Great place overall, service was amazing and the staff were very friendly! We enjoyed the hot tub area, playground and the free continental breakfast ( I'm gluten and lactose intolerant) so I was a little worried but there was no shortage of options, I was able to enjoy my coffee with soy and almond milk, hard boiled egg, banana and peanut butter YUM! They had complimentary candy, trail mix, and gum for kids, lots of movies and a workout are ( not that you'd need it)!
The room was very clean, and spacious, the bed are super comfy, and definitely liked having a fridge, coffee maker and microwave in the room!

It was a pleasure meeting you & your family. Your input is appreciated. Its nice to hear from someone who's choices in breakfast items are crucial to their diet. We do hope to see you return.

Thanks to Bruce and Loretta for their amazing hospitality during our 3 week stay in Estes Park. The lake view cottage was perfect and well stocked with everything we needed for our extended stay. The desk staff (Casey and Eliza) made sure we had everything we needed and always had a smile and a great attitude...thanks guys! The housekeeping staff always left the place clean and fresh and fully restocked. Excellent!! I will definitely stay at Murphy's again!
