Traveling solo without your loved ones and staying in cold impersonal chain hotels. Fun huh? Well Kanab, Utah has one solution for the despair this can bring on. It's the Parry Lodge. Dating back to the hey day of horse opera westerns and founded by three brothers after a chance encounter with Tom Mix, this place is a jewel. Tons of old time movie history. Free western movies in summer months in the barn theater. Homey comfortable rooms. Don't expect fancy here. It's older, it has that great route 66 motor court feel, although it's not on route 66. The desk service was excellent. I was made to feel welcome and wanted instead as if I was an inconvenience to be endured. Great restaurants in walking distance. Very comfortable bed. Quiet. Best nights sleep on a week long trip. Stay here!
