“Classic Motor Inn done right!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2011

After a few nights of over-stimulation and excess everything Vegas, my wife, two young kids and I started a quick road trip to hike in Zion and Bryce. We pulled into Kanab, a clean quaint town, and gravitated toward the big, brand new Holiday Inn Express. We could tell they had done a nice job by the lobby area. The Front Desk gentleman was extremely nice and very helpful, but alas, there was no room. He directed us to the Parry, and we are glad he did! The main lobby is chock full of autographed classic western stars who stayed in the 50s and 60s at the Parry. The staff is nice and the idea of pulling the car right up to the room was so nice, especially after the parkades and elevators in Vegas. The room was nice, though not Modern, was in tip-top shape with comfortable beds and nice bedding. It is very evident that whomever oversees the maintenance and cleaning of this property has an eye for detail and knows what they are doing! The carpeting was near new, as were the plumbing fixtures in the sink and shower as well. The AC unit is newer as well, though we did not try it as we were happy to have fresh air through the opening window! This property was so peaceful we felt perfectly comfortable and had a great night's rest! Well done Parry ownership and staff!

Parry Lodge is a clean comfortable motel. So much history there.
Staff was great and helpful.
Breakfast could have been a little warmer. It was good but on the cool side.

Front desk clerk has loooooong red nails and is a ringer for Angelica Huston in a character role. Didn't get the warm fuzzies from her, but she was definitely OLD HOLLYWOOD.

The setting of the Parry is astonishingly beautiful; much more beautiful than in the pictures. Book this hotel for a wedding, or fancy family reunion. I also recommend this if you are traveling with mature relatives. The cafe and banqueting facilities reminded me exactly of the restaurant from Joan Crawford's film, "Mildred Pierce."

I was not disappointed and will be a returning here again.

This place has lots of character and doesn't deserve the poor reviews. I particularly liked the two washbasins in our room - one inside the bathroom, the other just outside. You have to wait to be seated at breakfast, but this isn't a problem. The bread pudding is gorgeous.

Stayed for one niight ...never again...It is clean looking...had 2 cockroaches.Putting screen doors on all units would be nice as it would be nice to have a cool breeze..The sheets were awful..thin and NO fitted sheet for the bottom, so we fought with them all night,as a result we didn't sleep well. It is a nice area BUT they need to update and spend a few nights in thier own rooms...Hopfully they could see what we see as consumers.TV programing was VERY LIMITED...NO ESPN :{

Since we did not receive any written comments left regarding your complaints, I'd like to take the opportunity to address some of the issues you've listed on your review.

First, and foremost the main reason there are no screen doors on the rooms is because as you may or may not know it gets very windy here frequently, having screen doors on the rooms would allow the fine red dust to inundate the rooms.

I'd also like to make a suggestion, if at anytime you are not happy with your accommodations, no matter where you stay, let the front desk and/or managers know giving us the opportunity to "fix" your concerns and then if they aren't met satisfactorily then post negative comments on review sites. Had we been made aware of the sheet issue, we would have replaced them for you with a fitted sheet. As for the cockroach issue, we have had no other reports from other guests..

We have infact updated 24 of our rooms this past January and have other rooms on schedule for renovating in our off season.

Let me end with this, as one of the managers of Parry Lodge, we try to accommodate as best we can, if given the opportunity and are made aware of any displeasures with your accommodations.

Thank you for choosing Parry Lodge. We welcome you back anytime.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at and I have travelled all over. The hotel clerk was INCREDIABLY RUDE. The rooms were dirty and the beds were uncomfortable. Worst of all was the customer serice, there was not respect or consideration for the customer. We travel to Kanab all the time and I would sooner sleep in a field than stay at this hell hole.

Calling any hotel a "hell hole" is a pretty harsh assessment, especially since our rooms are thoroughly cleaned and inspected on a daily basis. Our staff takes pride in keeping Parry Lodge clean and pleasant for all of our guests. Again we were not made aware of the problems this guest felt they had until they posted their review on TripAdvisor, Yahoo, Google and wherever else they felt it necessary to post.

I cannot stress enough to any traveler, if you have a problem, please do not wait, let someone know immediately, especially the GM's as there is little we can do to accommodate you after the fact. Had this been brought to either the front desk and/or our attention we certainly would have gone out of our way to make sure your stay at Parry Lodge is an enjoyable one.

Thank you

After reading online reviews we decided to stay at Parry Lodge. The place has an old-time charm to it, with the main lobby area plastered with pictures and newspaper clippings from all the old westerns shot in the area. It is neat to look around at the memorabilia. The hot breakfast was very good, as well as a good value--a couple $ per guest. The room we stayed in could have used some updating; we also expected, staying in a room named after an actress, that there would be some picture or something to that effect in the room. We did pick the cheapest room, so maybe more expensive rooms are better furnished.
