Quick business trip. Ingress and egress to property was very simple. The room had a more than adequate number of electrical outlets.

The only real complaint I have is the same I have at every hotel. Inside the guest room, there is never sufficient lighting. Many older guest cannot see well, and without sufficient lighting, many everyday things such as reading, finding something you dropped on the floor, etc. can't be done. This Inn was darker than most.

Joni at the front desk was very helpful.
One tiny improvement would be to put a towel bar over the toilet to hang a towel for after shower use..There is no place to hang a shower towel.

The staff was very helpful in recommending good places to eat and fun activities. They recommended a hiking trail that tourist would not find, and it was wonderful. Our grandsons had a ball in to pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RMH27707 Welcome To Murphy
Nine hours on the road and the day ends in Murphy. Nothing against Murphy...I love Murphy and the surrounding area. But after a long day, I was whupped. Pulled up to the hotel and got out of the car and I find the clerk and a friend swinging in the swing and chatting. Two seconds went by and I was part of the conversation for at least ten minutes or more before Joan walked me inside to officially check me in. If I hadn't of been so tired I would have joined them on the swing. Hundreds of IHG property stays and the best check-in ever.
Facilities are up to date and very clean and I'm a stickler. I look for hair in the bathroom, fingerprint smudges on the furniture, ANYTHING on the carpet. Room was large by many standards, bathroom was huge and maybe it was just my 6:30AM luck, but plenty of hot water and GREAT water pressure. It's amazing how something as simple as a wonderful shower can start your day off so right.
Hotel was quiet. Very. Great bed (nicely made as opposed to someone in a rush), choice of pillows. Fridge kept items extremely cold and unlike many hotel fridges compressor noise was not an issue. A/C kept it a perfect 69 degrees....no smell or excess noise.
Others have addressed the slow internet. Minor web browsing was not an issue. Streaming from Netflix or Amazon Instant Video reminded me of AOL dial-up. I actually did a speed test using Ookla and the download speed measured at 1.01mps. What??? This was at 7AM so the signal was not being overtaxed. This is a serious issue that needs to be addressed by professionals. I just now recorded a download speed of 14.86mps in a Charlotte IHG property at 8PM. Every inch of this Murphy hotel needs to have the wifi signal received measured and the download and upload speeds recorded. There are simple, inexpensive and very effective methods for resolving those issues but it needs to be addressed by professionals. I am all IHG as one can see and I only mention this is such detail in hopes that the management will realize that this matter needs attention now as it directly affects the guest's overall experience and total satisfaction of their stay.
Would that keep me from staying at such an extremely friendly and wonderful property?
Unfortunately, it would depend upon what my needs were.
One final note. On my way out this morning and of course as usual I'm always in a rush, the gals in the breakfast area made sure to wish me a good day even though I hadn't had breakfast there that morning. I felt so good about that after loading the car I came back in and grabbed me a muffin for the road. Smiles from everyone!
Welcome to Murphy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Walter77 Best Holiday Inn Express Ever!
We took our grandaughter to go whitewater rafing on the Nanthala River and stayed in Murphy at this HI Express. This was the cleanest and neatest HI Express we have ever stayed in. A very enjoyable experience with friendly staff and service at the breakfast area.
We will stay here again next time we go rafting!
