Alexandra, I am pleased that you chose us for the bachelorette party. Tanya and Bruce love hosting fun small groups and giving them ideas of where to go for fun even if you leave some confetti behind. I'm glad to hear your group had a good time.

Murphys is a cute little town that's perfect for a weekend getaway. It has everything: nice restaurants, wine tasting and shopping. Everyone is super friendly. We always stay at the Murphys Inn when we go. It's spotlessly clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Tanya at the front desk greets us with a smile and makes us feel welcome every time. And...

Short walk to downtown. Cozy and comfortable room with heater that warmed the room right up since we were there in February for our anniversary. Fridge and microwave in room. Grocery store just across the way walking distance for snacks.

Staying at Murphys Inn Motel, on a weekend, is highway Robbery. 137.00/night- 2 double beds, one room, very clean. Beds are very low to the floor, and channels did not work well. The Inn felt comfortable, and all customers and staff seemed happy. We dealt with Bruce, he was very friendly and kind, but still no deals were to be...

Thank you for staying with us Lana. We strive to provide a clean comfortable friendly stay for all of our guests. It sounds like we succeeded there. For added comfort we are switching our internet and TV service to Comcast, so in about a month the channels should be much better. We hope that you return for another stay.
