Pros: quaint,in town
Cons: closet space, lower rate, more info provided at check in
Location: in town, convenient
The room was over priced. It is a small local motel, small room, absolutely no closet , nowhere to hang clothes.

Hi Kathy: We are sorry that the room did not meet your expectations. Due to your request to be close to the screened-in porch, we only had 1 double bed room to select. We are in the process of installing clothes racks in every room - but unfortunately your room is one of the last couple to be installed. We are constantly looking at ways to improve our rooms and appreciate your feedback. I hope that you will give us another chance on your next visit to Murphy. Sincerely, Teri Canning, Owner
