“Quaint, cozy, charming. So glad I found this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

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!

Room Tip: The front movie star named rooms are nearer the highway. I took the advice of others here and asked...

We had a one night stay at Parry Lodge and found the accommodation more than adequate for our needs. The hotel is quaint with the history of film making in the region. It was a shame we were out of season and the nightly western films were not being shown.
The room was clean had a comfortable bed, good luggage storage, table with two chairs and good night time lighting. The only downsides were no fridge or microwave and a very noisy air conditioner.

Reception and restaurant are decorated with framed, some signed, photos of performers from all the movies made in Utah.interesting to look around. Room was very reasonably priced. Slightly dated decor, but nice furniture. Very clean. Nice soap, cleansing wipes etc provided. Front desk lady was very informative and helpful, as was lady for check out. Gave map with and suggested places to eat in town with recommendations for different tastes and budgets. Didn't use pool as we stayed in mid nov, but looked nice. Breakfast not included, but a discount was given for being a desk. We had 2 tasty, hearty breakfasts for under $10. Would recommend to stay here if in kanab.

Room Tip: We stayed in 163, was a little set back and very comfortable.

While traveling on a motorcycle trip with a friend we got a tip from another rider about this hotel. My friend was not overly interested but after trying two other chain hotels that were booked solid we took a room at Parry Lodge. I have to say it was one of the best places we stayed on our three week trip. If you want the most modern hotel in Kanab it may not be for you but if you appreciate atmosphere and history you will love this place. The room was clean and comfortable. And the staff was great. Watch a movie in the barn and have a great breakfast in the restaurant. To know that you are staying in such a historic place is worth every penny.

We stayed at this hotel after the days inn was full even we had a reservation through booking.com .
The hotel is quite old and it looks that this entire town is still living the old movies .
We got a room with a kitchen; it was good enough to spend the night before visiting the Grand Canyon North rim. We didn't took the breakfast because they ask for extra payment but it looks good enough to start a day.

Room Tip: Look early for a place to have dinner, most of everything in town is close at 9pm.

A fun place to stay and see where the stars such as John Wane, etc. stayed in Kanab's movie heydays. Also, at night they show western movies in an old barn and that is fun as the older western movies are not as profane or violent as the ones today. The style is early 60's, so do not expect the luxury and features of a modern hotel. But the rooms are clean and the rates are reasonable.

Room Tip: The rooms of the "stars" are older, smaller, and noisier than the newer rooms in the back...

Our room rather dated, shower very hard to work as handle stiff and water wasn't very hot.
Bed was good and room was clean, buffet style breakfast was very good. Would have rated higher if bathroom was in better condition, it was quiet there no outside noises, didn't know there was a bus tour there until morning!

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family
