“A step back in time.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

This was a neat place to stop, also one of the only available hotels in Kanab in September. We called almost all in the Auto Club Tour Book. All filled with Euro tourists.

The motel is over 80 years old, and it feels like going back to the '50's. We had the Arlene Dahl, queen room for about $70. It was very clean, tidy but a little small. No closet, you have to wonder where all the stars that stayed there kept their clothes for months long movie shoots.

The really fun part is the barn where they show movies shot in the area every night at 7:30, along with a clip about the movie business in Kanab's "Little Hollywood". The barn kept the movie horses. It's free, and they sell popcorn and soda if you choose. We brought in our own wine to enjoy with the film.

We would definitely stay there again. The front desk was so accommodating and friendly. it's perfectly located across from Houstons for a good meal. And the only town to stay in if you're wanting to visit the National Parks in the area.

We stayed here in August while on a road trip through the Southwest. We had 2 rooms, the John Wayne Room and the Julie Newmar room next door. They were very nice rooms and the added atmosphere of the stars' names was great. My wife is a huge John Wayne fan and we actually planned our trip around being able to get that room. Our rooms were in a duplex unit and shared a grassy area with 2 other similar units. The pool and patio area was very nice, and the evening movies was a great added touch. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The pool area rooms are very spacious and have a small porch with chairs, and share a grassy common...

We were on vacation out to Utah, Colorado and Arizona in September 2013. This place was really nice. I loved all the old movie stuff they had. Brought back a lot of memories of days gone by. We did not get there in time to watch the movie but enjoyed staying there. It was older but very quaint and had a lot of charm. Our room the first time had two bedrooms which surprised us. We were in the area at the time of the September flooding so when we left the next day we made a reservation for the next night so we would be sure we had a place to stay. So we went to the north rim, came back and stayed that night and then left the next morning for the south rim. I will definitely go back and stay there again. If you are looking for a big fancy hotel or motel, this place is not for you. But if you are looking for a quiet, charming, place, please check it out. We did not eat int the dining room. We walked around the town and loved the beauty the town had. I took pictures of all the neat statues they had in front of the stores. It was a really nice, little town.

Very neat, clean place with history circa my childhood. Our room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The air conditioner worked very well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As my wife and I passed through town on our motorcycle in the morning, on our way to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, we stopped in to see if we could leave some of our luggage prior to check-in. The desk clerk upon checking our reservation, was happy to lighten our load and put our bags in a safe place for our return to check-in later in the day. The $6.99 all you can eat breakfast buffet was fantastic with many choices. Even having to pay for the breakfast, rather than the free continentals offered elsewhere, was to me a bargain. There were quite a few eating establishments within walking distance. Oh and the wireless internet, was the best connection of all the places I stayed at on my trip, even in the Andy Devine room near the back of the facility. I only wish we could have allowed more time to explore and enjoy the local surroundings. Happy Trails can be made at the Parry Lodge.

Parry Lodge is on the national list of Historic Places and has a long history of hosting Hollywood stars making Western movies. It has extensive treed grounds set well back from the busy main road of Kanab, an enormous pool with poolside patio, a barn where they show Westerns made in Kanab, a proper dining room with a good breakfast buffet, and a convenient laundromat for dusty guests. We got a 2-bedroom suite at Parry's for HALF the price that Canyons "Lodge" -- a re-done mid-century motel -- wanted for their single motel room. The staff were great too, and Parry's is directly opposite many nice shops and eateries.

We chose Parry Lodge based on reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Very friendly staff. Our room, although very small, was very clean with a comfortable bed. The shower was also very small. But price, location, it's fun and interesting history (check their site to learn about it's ties to the Rat Pack) and great service make this a place we would return to. We chatted with other guests who come back yearly for a stay at this cool little property.
