Just needed a place to sleep for the night while travelling. The Murray Plaza Lodge fit the bill just fine. It falls into the more "budget" hotel category, and certainly isn't fancy, but is clean, safe, easy to access, hand had everything I needed. All "appliances" were functional as well - TV, shower, coffee maker, heating/cooling, etc. I might have... More

Have stayed here several times. No doubt this is the best motel in west Kentucky. Privately owned. Owners are the most courteous and helpful in all aspects. Their staff are the same s well. All rooms are well kept, clean, and up to date. Last but not least the prices are the best you will find. Highly recommend Murray Plaza... More

If you are looking for a super clean and quiet place to stay, Murray Plaza Lodge is your place! Our room was super clean with all the basic amenities needed. Free WiFi included. The price was very reasonable also. If we are ever in need of a room in Murray again, we will stay again.

An old style "motor lodge" that has been updated but kept the charm. Extremely clean! Beds were comfortable -- full size only -- and bathroom was small but very well appointed. AC unit in the wall was great and the weather was super hot. Very nice inn keeper and other staff. No breakfast but individual cup coffee maker in the... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Murray Plaza Lodge, July 14 - 16, 2016. The room we stayed in was clean, cheerful, and had everything we needed. We requested a late check out, and the owner was very willing to accommodate our request. The grounds, gardens, and gazebos make this a "landmark destination" in Murray, KY.

Fairly well maintained. For a property I would estimate built in the 50's, it has been renovated, and well maintained. As for most roadside property's built in this error the rooms, and bathrooms are small, but comfortable. The front desk help was very friendly. The only complaint the carpet in my room was stained.

Quaint motel, very clean basic rooms. Very welcoming staff, gave us info about the town & shops in the area. I enjoy supporting the small businesses & prefer to stay in the smaller motels when they're taken care of like this one.

This beautifully renovated 1954 motor court is clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. For a small place, there are some nice amenities: fridge, microwave, and free wireless. The owners are friendly and hardworking, keeping the place spotless and making sure visitors are comfortable. Highly recommended.

We tend to avoid motes these days, but the Murray Plaza Lodge is an exception. The simple double room was very clean, and the bathroom was both somewhat vintage with all of the tile and immaculate. We'd certainly stay there again.

The staff was very nice, smiling and helpful. We arrived late and needed some equipments, and they gave us even though it was closing time for the front desk. The room was clean. It's located in a quiet area. It feels like a family business and not a corporate.
