It is a good place to stay. it has wonderful pool and hot tub. the only concern is there is no freezer and microwave. Overall it is a really good place to stay!

This was a nice hotel with friendly staff. The room was clean and breakfast was plentiful.

The hotel was very nice, easy location, staff is excellent and it was easy to go to a good restaurant. I would certainly return.

On my trip to Murray Last Year I stayed at this hotel. It was clean, comfortable bed, very nice staff, good location and good price. Not many options in Murray as its a small town, but I travel quite a bit and this hotel was one of my better stays. Even better than a 4 star Hotel I stayed at this Past July that was in Times Square in NYC. I will stay here again on my next trip to Murray as I plan to visit at least once a year.

We got in town at 12 but the front desk said we couldn't check in any earlier than 2. It kind of put a damper on the day. Other than that the room and pool were exactly what we expected.

Stayed 2 nights - non-smoking room was clean ( and no past odors of smoke or mustiness) , alarm clock radio volume control was broken . Room wasn't as quite from hallway & above floor noise as it could/ should be . Morning continental breakfast was very good and plentiful .

Great staff and clean rooms. And I hear the breakfast is amazing. I would recommend to anyone.

The rooms are nice... somewhat comfortable. The staff is really nice. The noise is somewhat of a problem. In the front you have road noise, so ask for a room in the back. This trip we actually got a room in the back - and then we had a husband/wife fighting next door in the middle of the night. The staff cant do anything about it but... ugh.

Price was a little higher than I would have liked, but we got the Jacuzzi, so that was nice. Clean. Breakfast was OK.. Cinnamon rolls were wonderful.

Holiday Inn Express is one of my favorites! Great breakfast. Helpful staff. Clean pool. Unfortunately, this Murray, KY location let me down as to hot tub cleanliness.

I was in town for the Murray State MFA residency this past week and the stay was mostly pleasant. At one point, we had a noise complaint, which was odd, since we weren't making much noise. We were getting ready for bed, so I think the problem might have been older people in a room near us one night. The hotel employee that knocked on our door made me feel bad that night. He was short, skinny and had blonde hair. Other than that, the stay was great. Breakfast every morning was good, too, except sometimes the biscuits are a bit hard and the scrambled eggs are fake. The omelets are much better. And if you're looking forward to yogurt, look forward to going to the bathroom a lot b/c the only choice is Activia.

The beds were very comfortable, room was clean. Nice flat screen tv. Our room was quiet. Pool was a little cool, but the hot tub was nice and warm. Good breakfast and they offered many choices including eggs, bacon, sausage. Yummy hot cinnamon rolls! Overall a very nice experience.

We stayed here during a baseball tournament. It was a nice, more spacious room than we expected. It is on the main road and close to everything: restaurants and stores. We were very pleased.

This is an excellent place to stay if you are attending a basketball or football game at Murray State University. The morning breakfast was outstanding and the renovations makes it look like a new hotel.

Hotel was great. Breakfest was really good, rooms were clean and get cleaned everyday. They had free cookies all day long too.

Visit was fine. Breakfast was blah and I would probably skip it next time.

the staff was friendly and location was great, but when I checked out, they had me charged twice. [...] I thought is was all cleared and I checked my bank account this morning & they had my bank account charged again at a higher rate.

About 2 hours after check-in, I discovered that the in-room refrigerator was no longer working. It took the front desk worker about 15 minutes to come up and check it and about another 15 minutes before it was replaced with one that worked. This was pretty fast. The service was excellent throughout the stay. However, since the temperature outside was in the mid to upper 90s, you have to keep the air conditioning at its coldest level, and you cannot close the door leading to the living room area, in the luxury suite, because it will get very warm in there since it does not actually have its own air conditioning unit. It is cooled by pulling air out of the larger bedroom area.

Location was fine, and room was clean. Front desk employees were not knowledgeable of the area...and, following check out, were unwilling to assist me further in locating a lost item.
