We stayed in Room 131 (the Tyrone Power room) for three nights. By the end of our trip I was ready for a better bed. The property's site lists the beds as "queen size", but I found them to be significantly smaller than queen-size beds at our next stop on our trip. Not only was the bed narrow so that I spent much of the night with my daughter's elbow in my ear, but also the bed wasn't very comfortable.
The room was showing its age. While I like vintage fixtures, the lights were inadequate to illuminate the room. The floors and doors squeaked and groaned loudly. A chair in the second room would have been nice to go with the desk. My daughters liked the odd-shaped closets so they could play hide and seek, and they didn't seem to mind the room condition. The bathroom floor tile looked newer than the rest of the room. The coffee maker was small but serviceable.
Service was the highlight of the stay. All staff members were courteous and friendly. I also apprecated the free wi-fi. If we are in Kanab again I will either spend more for a better room at the Parry Lodge or see if the Victorian Inn has openings.
