Seen an owl in RMNP the other day, it seemed appropriate that I used Hootsuite to post this pic. http://ow.ly/y3m8m

The weekend we were there was cold and snowy. Couldn't have been a better setting. The front service was wonderful and the service at breakfast was delightful. Management, Annette and Doug were funny and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this lodge and will go back again and again. Thank you for a great weekend.

The best thing about Murphy's is the staff. They exude this genuine sense of care that you don't get many other places. They really want to help you because that's how they are as people, not because of any corporate customer service policy. Our one sour note was that the cleaning staff left the window open and heat off in our room. When we got in it was ~40 degrees F, and the rooms take forever to heat up with the hot water heaters. Other than that... Good: within walking distance of the main drag, free DVD collection, decent breakfast for being continental Bad: The main windows in the non-riverside rooms face the walkway. So everyone else walking to their rooms can just look in and make eye contact. It's kind of awkward.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! This place was just our speed for a vintage lodge-like motel. It is close enough to easily walk (for most folks) to all the shops and restaurants downtown, but because it's not directly in the middle of it all, the rates are a little more reasonable. It's an older place that has recently been updated. The guest rooms have been updated with carpet, tile, curtains, and bedding that will surround you with the modern, contemporary earth-tones most of us expect today. The "lodge" is laid out with a two-story guest room structure that wraps around, in a square fashion, the parking lot while the office building is in the middle. All the buildings have been updated as well with fresh paint in shades of brown. Though updated, we personally enjoyed the sound of walking around on the wood balconies... somewhat creaked a little. Some of the railings were worn smooth. We love an older place. The more history a place can get under its belt, the more character and charm it seems to have. The property backs up to a creek roaring right out of the mountains. Very nice. Get a room at the back of the "square" to have a balcony or patio if you'd like to take advantage of the relaxing sights and sounds of the creek. The staff was very nice. We felt like we were staying with friends. They have a great continental breakfast with cereal, danishes, fruit, bagels, juice, coffee, etc. The set up is cool, too. On the second level, sort of a loft above the pool, the breakfast is in a kitchen area with lots of tables, a fireplace, a TV, microwave, sink, and a small selection of books and board games. Cautions: In our updated, guest room bathroom, there was only a single, round, extension wall mirror. I thought it was cool, but any women who rely on larger mirrors for makeup and such may not like it. The breakfast area is on the second level which is not a big deal for most, but anyone who cannot climb stairs, or does not like to, will not like this arrangement. Parking is tight--If you are traveling with two cars, there may not be a space for both. With this known, it's not enough to keep me away. In the end, it was just right. I hope to stay again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome we received at Murphy's River Lodge. While enjoying the many activities and points of interest in and around Estes Park, we could always count on relaxing in the hot tub and indoor heated pool, in contrast to travelers staying elsewhere who commented on having an outdoor hotel pool that was too cold to use. The room was newly refinished with an orange peel paint treatment, appropriate accessories including tasteful decor and window treatments, a fabulous mattress and bedding; refrigerator/freezer/microwave; free DVDs; HDTV; and a staff that was welcoming and accommodating for all of our needs. The river walk ran behind our hotel allowing us to easily stroll to the shopping and dining district without traffic. We could also stand at the office and ride a free shuttle or trolley to any destination one might want; yet walking to town is a minimal and pleasant stroll. There is really no need to drive anywhere in town and parking is ample at Murphy's River Lodge. The coolest touches included multiple well-populated humming bird feeders; local wildlife along the river walk; grills for preparing your own meals; and an outdoor stove for evening gatherings beside a log fireplace. Outdoor entertainment in a nearby amphitheater is easily reached on foot. I will definitely return to, and recommend Murphy's River Lodge.

We have spent our last two anniversaries here at Murphy's River Lodge. Stayed in the same room both years. (The one with the Garden Tub, if it's available I strongly recommend this room!) We go in the off season and the service is amazing. Wonderful continental breakfast in the morning, including fresh fruit, yogurt, a variety cereal, bagels, english muffins, a variety of pastries, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice, milk, and hard boiled eggs. I'm sure I'm forgetting something. The indoor pool and hot tub are open year round from 9am to 9pm. We had more towels in our room than we knew what to do with. Those at the front desk are very friendly and we were able to check in early without any problems. :) We love that this lodge is so close to the downtown Estes Park. We arrive in Estes, park at the lodge and don't use the car again until we're ready to leave.

This is a nice place but it's not very fancy. You have to know that before you make your reservation. It smells just a little funny on the inside...it may be the carpet. The room we rented was a large king. Most of the room space was wasted in a way because the room was huge with lots of empty space and they had a small inefficient bathroom, really tiny and badly designed. When we visited they were renovating the room right next to the one we rented (not an issue for us - renovated during the day when we weren't there) so they may be updating stuff. The bed was comfortable and we had free internet service and breakfast. The parking lot is kind of small. This place isn't a bad value but it's probably at the level of a motel - decent pricing for what you get and the river next to the room is a gigantic plus. We got a real key to our room, not a plastic credit card. That was neat to me because I've never seen that before.
