Outdated bathroom. No water pressure and water would go from scalding to ice cold when showering. Sink in bathroom barely drained.
Loved the view along river and how close it was to town. We walked there easily.

Very accommodating staff and great continental breakfast!
April 28, 2015
The breakfast was awful. Old pastries and bagels, no meat or eggs.
April 27, 2015
Thin walls, but not too bad.
Clean room, quiet fan, everything worked. Great continental breakfast facility.
April 26, 2015
I probably shouldn't have booked a space with a fireplace as I'm sensitive to smell. Left the windows open the next day and my experience was much better.
Loved listening to the river

Great breakfast! Friendly staff. We had to check out later and they were accommodating.

Slightly noises, bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
Old building but very, very clean.

Friendly staff, good location. The hotel is fine, I think it's the little things that stand out. Free DVD rental and framed photo in the rocking chair!

The staff was the friendliest I have ever encountered.

The only downside was the noise. You can hear every step above you and next to you.
Loved how close it was to the stores in Estes. The room were very clean and the gentlemen who checked us in and out was great.
March 21, 2015
The room had an odor.
Clean and up to date.
March 5, 2015
We could hear EVERYTHING going on outside our room, in the rooms on both sides of us, and the room above. It was difficult to sleep or relax.
The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great.
March 5, 2015
The walls were very thin, we could hear everything. Continental breakfast was right next to our room and it opens at 7am. No kitchen sink
February 24, 2015
We were disappointed that the pool and hot tub were closed, but someone called us a few days earlier so it wasn't a surprise.
We thought murphys lodge was quite nice. We had adjoining rooms with our friends which was an added bonus. The office had a large number of dvd's which we utilized. Very close to main area of town.
February 19, 2015
questionable hot tub hygiene, charged our card the full price immediately after booking although was only supposed to be first night, quoted two different prices for special class, charged the higher of them, thin walls
room was spacious with great amenities like full kitchen and fireplace, room generally very clean, staff friendly

Being from Loveland it was always nice getting out to the mountains and go dine out and shop in Estes, but now with how popular the town has gotten with all the tourists it seems the quality has really gone down hill. The restaurants are over priced with only mediocre quality and the hotels aren't much different. Seems like no one cares because every summer tourists drop money regardless. I will start my review with the positives. When we arrived our reservation made for a quick check in. We were well greeted by a young man who gave us all the proper information we needed for our stay. The hotel is just west of the main strip so we just walked over to go shopping, that was wonderful to be so close and not have to deal with all the backed up traffic. Our room was clean and our continental breakfast was pretty good. There was a sweet woman there to help everyone get everything they needed to get their morning going and to restock and clean up as people came through. Now for the negatives. Our room wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. There was paint chipping throughout the walls, mild to no hot water and the walls were a little thin. We stayed this past Valentine's Day so of course the hotel was busy so you could here all the traffic from everyone coming and going from the hotel. There was a plastic film put over the windows to block the view of the decaying warehouse building right behind the hotel, which also blocked any real sunlight from coming in. It honestly felt like being in a prison and if you wanted to open the windows it really wasn't worth it. Being February in Colorado is pretty chilly and the rooms didn't come with any extra blankets and the ONE that was on the bed was very thin wrapped around with a thin sheet. The carpets were very dated and the brown coloring of them didn't help them look as clean as there probably were.

Had a very good continental breakfast and the picture in the giant rocking chair was so much fun.
February 14, 2015
Noisy outside of rooms on walk way
February 3, 2015
We had an amazing weekend! The room was so cozy! In a perfect location to go downtown! I highly recommend murphys! We will be back and hope our friends will join us!
