The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and they do clean your room each day and supply you with fresh towels, which a lot of hotels won't do now. I commend them for continuing this service. They allow pets, for a small fee, which makes it easy for me to bring them with me as I do shows in many states. The breakfast was ok but I understand since covid, this is one thing that has unfortunately changed, and not for the better of the guests. I highly recommend this hotel if you are in this area. I have another show in the area this year and I have already made my reservations to stay at this hotel.

Hotel's Favorite
I was checked in quickly; my room was clean and very spacious. The king bed was wonderfully comfortable and the other furniture basic but ample. Property is located on Andrews Road close to supermarket, restaurants, major artery, but quiet enough to give me a great night's sleep.

This was our 2nd visit to this Best Western. Did not disappoint, same quality as last year. Good room size, quiet and comfortable bed. Excellent location for shopping, food and fuel. Will happily return to this location.

Staff was friendly, and that is the only thing I have to say that is good. I spent five nights at this motel last week on a business trip. I arrived on a Sunday night and left on Friday morning. Check in was in person and not to difficult they gave me Room 122 on the ground floor, this is an older motel type property with all rooms opening to a parking lot and is a two story structure. The ice and vending is on the second floor at the office end of the building using stairs for access. The room was dark, dank/wet feeling upon entry and had an strong odor with the window mount air conditioner off. The air conditioner was a push button type that did not remove any moisture and was extremely loud. The carpet was a low pile indoor outdoor type laid over concrete, it was worn and extremely dirty, to the point it discolored your socks while walking on it, and left dirt on your feet as you got into bed. The carpet between the bath wall and the bed in a 2 x 4 foot area was wet and I found a wet vac attachment under the edge of the bed in that area. I thought they had been cleaning it so I dismissed the wetness thinking it would dry out. I spent Sunday night in the bed with a mattress that had a broken down part that left a dent the size of your body in it when you clawed your way up. The furniture in the room was stained and sticky to the touch. After my business was concluded on Monday I took a shower which made the wet area expand on the floor. I would think that the black mold in that room was extremely unhealthy and I woke Tuesday morning coughing which I never do. On that morning I made the staff aware and they said "oh, we thought that was fixed" and gave me a second room (number 110) again on the ground floor. While this room was slightly better it still had strong odor, dirty worn carpet and noisy air conditioner. Breakfast consisted of some fruit and heat and eat type packaged items. This is working mans hotel geared at truckers and construction workers but at $125.00 dollars a night I would have expected slightly more. I will not stay here again and will not recommend this place to anyone.

Put in a smoking room. No reasonable options to move even though hotel was far below capacity. Upcharged for dogs not advertised at booking. Employees were not empowered to assisit with our problems. No other pet friendly options in Murphy and they know it.

I am sorry that your experience was not the superior one we strive for. When you made your reservation, it was for a King Smoking Pet Friendly room. We were unable to change it to a non-smoking room because they were all occupied. Our posted policy on the web page is: "PET POLICY We are pet friendly and allow up to two dogs in a rented room. The size limit for any one dog shall be 80 pounds. Other pet types (e.g. cats) may be allowed upon the hotel’s approval prior to arrival. Pet rate is $15 per day." Employees are empowered to help you with room type changes if the room type requested is available. We have a limited number of pet rooms and do not put pets in non-pet rooms to protect our other guests who might have allergies. I hope this clears up things for you. We do hope that you will try us again by making reservations directly with our front desk.
