This was the first time staying here. Their hospitality is like none other I have experienced. They have free popcorn, free movies you can check out, and other amenities in their office. Their continental breakfast impressed me. It was in a large and clean room on the second

What a cute and cozy place. We live our bed! So comfy and warm. The pool and hot tub we're so nice even when we got out in the cold air we warmed up quickly in our room. We took advantage of free movie rental😀. We plan on coming back soon. Staff was great and helpful.

Our room was really tiny; I mean REALLY TINY. The room next to ours was huge. The office representative told me we were in the "value" room. Avoid the "value" room unless you like cramped quarters. No table or chairs. This room was advertised as having a river view. The "river" i

We do have a couple of rooms that we advertise as value rooms and we even list the sq ft so people know that these discounted rooms are more economical due to size . Many people like these rooms that are on a budget. The Fall River is a typical Colorado River that size does adjust with the seasons. If you like a larger river come back late spring and book one of our standard rooms and I think you will be very happy!

We walked in without a reservation in October and were treated to 40 percent off and a beautiful room with a fireplace and balcony overlooking the river. I wish we could have stayed longer. This was such a cozy stay with so many little touches (great breakfast, free snacks/movies

My wife and I were looking for a pet friendly place to stay during a quick overnight visit to Estes Park. The room we ended up with was very clean and comfortable. Great amenities, friendly staff, and terrific location. We'll definitely be staying here again.

Searching for a place in Estes with private deck/patio private outside hot tub and community firepit, near river with mountain views. Are there any rooms here that have all the private amenities plus the views?
Thank you for your interest in Murphy's River Lodge. We do have rooms with decks and balconies. They are semi private per unit but do not have walls to prevent the view from being blocked. So all decks have views of other units decks. We have one unit with a jetted tub and the tub is in the room. Our hot tub is in the pool house and is for adult use only. We do also have a community fire pit. I hope this helps with your questions. Please call us if you have any questions that we did not answer for you!

Are the rooms air-conditioned? How is the comfort level of the beds? (We have bad backs) Is it mostly quiet or can you hear others in the rooms next to yours? Thank you for your answers!
We were there in the fall. So, the weather was cool. Don't know about the a/c. Rooms were quiet. No noise from neighbors. Beds were fine. Not mushy at all.

Can you fish in the river?
Gina, Yes you can fish in the river. This time of year the water is very low by our property. In the spring it is very high and moves very fast. There are shops up town that you can buy a single day fishing license or week license. We are in the city limits so it is catch and release on our property.

"Ask for a room overlooking the river"
"Ask for a room in the back, the creek runs right behind the lodge, it wonderful!"
"2nd floor is likely more quiet."
"Condos, and specialty rooms are best - make sure to get a room on the river!!"
"Ask for a room near the river"
