There is a lot not to like about Parry's. The rooms and the decor are very dated (the late 50s) and have been only modestly kept up. And the food (which we skipped) is on the order of hospital food according to the friends who sent us there. But if the average Best Western doesn't scare you off, Parry's will be a true find.
The little slice of 1940s & 50s LA/Hollywood/TV & movieland history that the hotel provides a glimpse of is a real treat. The ladies who run the place probably were there when Gene Autry or John Wayne were in house filming some B Western. The place fits the funkiness of the town, which is a terrific launching point for tours of the great Utah Natl. Parks. We were happy to have stayed there, for one night only.
