Nice hotel but hard to get to.

Holiday Inn in Murphy NC is a very nice hotel. It's a little hard to get to. It was raining very hard and could not see the sign. We had to circle around to find it. The breakfast was nice and the staff was helpful. It's just a small thing but the cookies they had out for the evening were store purchased and rather hard. It would just have been a nice touch to have fresh ones out.

Chevelles in downtown Murphy was a very nice and tasty dinner. We had the salads and they were very fresh and very filling.

Close to whitewater rafting

My family stayed here to be in close proximity to Ocoee river rafting. Had a wonderful time and a very comfortable stay. The little town of Murphy is quaint and the staff at the Holiday Inn Express were very helpful. They told us about some great restaurants in the area and the continental breakfast was very good.

I Don't Think So....

The rafting trip was great and the hotel was clean. My wife was offended at check-in by the clerk popping a joke about our family name "coming out of the woods". Breakfast was far worse as all the food was dried or overcooked and we waited in line while the house keeping staff took turns filling their faces in front of us instead of allowing paying guests a chance to get food. Obnoxious and self centered shined while we waited with plates in hand for 4 house keepers to indulge,darting like mosquitos so as not to miss a drop. The lady I assumed was manager did ask if everything was ok when she saw my son, wife and myself throw our plates into the trash. A shame her paid employees had no concern. The Hardees we ate at about 10 miles away at least was what we expected. After all, what good is a meal included in the price when you have to buy another. Not much of a bargain there. We've always checked in to Holiday Inn Express without verifying rating, but definitely never again.

The rafting was fun and the guide was quite the character. His name was [...] and if we return I'm requesting him again.

Nice to be in Murphy

I came to Murphy to get access to the Cherohala Skyway. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the mouth of the Cherohala. The stretch of road called the Cherohala Skyway connects Robbinsville NC to Tellico Plains TN...about 51 miles. The highest peak of the Cherohala (at Santeetlah Gap) is 5,390 feet above sea level. The most challenging stretch of the Cherohala is a the end of the drive, referred to affectionately as the "tail of the dragon", packs 318 really tight turns into 11 exhilarating miles while climbing up and down the peaks of the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests.
