The Murphys Historic Hotel is the longest continually operated hotel in California. The Hotel was built in 1856 and we try to keep our nine historic rooms as close to that time period as possible. If you are to stay within the Historic Hotel you are without T.V., Phone, A/C, and of course a bathroom... but how often do you get to share a shower down the hall? You may bump into a ghost while enjoying a little piece of history. We also have twenty modern hotel rooms that have been improved more recently with new T.V.'s, Beds, A/C's, and Windows. We do have plans to remodel all bathrooms but Rome wasn't built in a day. We also have a full service restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch, & dinner 365 days a year along with a full service saloon. The Murphys Historic Hotel is also within walking distance to over 20 different wine tasting rooms and our community park. While you are here please let me know how we are doing. We hope to see you soon!Sincerely, Brian

The Murphys Historic Hotel is in an ideal location on Main Street. You can walk to 23 winery tasting rooms, many restaurants, and boutiques. Staying in the outer hotel buildings is less than ideal. Our first night we were placed in a deluxe room which...More

Rarely does one encounter such shocking and disturbing behavior in a place that is dependent upon tourism. The bartender in the Saloon of this adorable hotel was openly hostile and aggressive toward new customers. His friends had their feet stretched out across the bar stools...More

We stayed one night in room 15. It’s in the historic side and across from the most paranormal active room. We didn’t stay there for this reason but we certainly weren’t disappointed on all levels. The room was beautiful with a balcony and wonderful bathroom....More
