Needed an overnight room for a business deal. Reserved and paid for the room thru Expedia. When I got to the hotel I was charged an extra $18.14 for incidentals. Incase we made a phone call. We were suppose to get it back. Never did. Hate hidden fees!!!! Oh yeah, had two bath matts and only one towel. Had to go to the desk to rectify. And the carpet turned my white socks black. So much for shampooing the carpet.

The hotel is small but clean. Breakfast is included. It is a bit difficult to find since its located atop a mountain. The view is beautiful. Service was friendly. Covid guidelines and social distancing were observed.

My husband and I are in the midst of cleaning my dad's house preparing for an Estate Sale and then selling the house. After days of working non stop, we decided we needed a break, so at 5:00 pm on a Friday night, we decided to head to Murphy NC for an overnight stay. My first thought was to stay at the Casino hotel. Apparently the beds there are made of gold as they wanted $499 a night. Not happening. So I did a quick internet search and found the Holiday Inn Express. We arrived around 6:30 and were quickly checked in. We had a King room that was very large on the 2nd floor. We dropped our stuff and headed to the Casino. We got back to the hotel around 10:30 ish and discovered that our TV didn't work. My husband made a call to the front desk and they gave him some troubleshooting tips, but that didn't work. After a 2nd call to the desk, Jeffery came up to our room and took a look at the TV. Within minutes he was able to diagnose the problem and got the TV to work! Kudos to Jeffery! The next morning, we went down to see what the breakfast situation was. With Covid, I really expected a banana and a muffin to go, but surprisingly, they had a full breakfast offering. The young lady in charge was very efficient and friendly and put our orders in to-go containers for us to take back to our rooms to eat. It was a pleasant surprise. Although it's not the closest hotel to the Casino, but it did look much newer than some of the others we passed, I would certainly recommend this hotel. It's clean, the staff is friendly and accomodating, parking is free.......all things that add up to a good stay!

Quiet and clean. Easy access and close to some of the eating places. Ask for a front view unless u wanna get stuck with a view of a car port and shed. They provide free breakfast but am not sure of the details. They have free parking.

This property is located on the west side of Murphy. It is a little hard to see at first, but once you know where it is, you can find it again. The staff was friendly and given the virus issues, it seemed clean and sanitized. The bed and pillows were excellent. We did have a maintenance issue with a stopped up toilet and the safety bar on the door was not very secure. That was disappointing.
