Largest Oldest Deepest Darkest Quietest motel room in the world

  • Largest. 200 feet by 400 feet with 70 foot ceiling
  • Oldest: Caverns and walls over 65 million years
  • Deepest: 220 feet below the surfaces, access via elevator
  • Darkest: absent of any light Quietest: the only sound is your heart beating and your breath. You are the only living thing in the caverns… The only living thing
  • Driest: zero humidity, nothing lives in the caverns, not a fly, not bat, nothing

Imagine, if you can, spending the night in the oldest, darkest, deepest, quietest, and largest suite room in the world. Imagine, 220 feet below ground, in a cavern that took 65 million years to form, in a room that is 200 feet wide, 400 feet long with a 70 foot ceiling. The largest dry cavern in the United States, so dark that it is completely absent on any light, so quiet because it contains no life forms; nothing lives in the caverns, not a fly, not a mouse, a bat, bug or animal. Nothing. The only thing moving or breathing is you. The air is as dry and clean as one can get, coming in via 65 miles of limestone crevices from the Grand Canyon to the caverns. The limestone takes out all moisture and impurities… Please, re-read the above paragraph, slowly, and think about what each feature represents. You take the elevator down 22 stories underground and spend the night in a place so quiet and dark, so large and so old, and so alone. It is not for everyone, but if you have the desire and will, you can do this. There is only one room available in the caverns… we do have plenty of motel rooms above ground… in case the entire group is not as adventurous. The room is completely furnished with all amenities one would need… 220 feet below the surface, 2 double beds, living room with a queen fold out sofa, (room sleeps up to 6), a library of old books and magazines such as a National Geographic collection dating back to 1917, dictionaries and other books dating back to the late 1800’s. A working record player with records, table and chairs, bathroom, several lightening options for the over night stay in the caverns, and personal lightening. A comfortable “home for the night”. Your check in time is normally with the last tour of the day (4 PM) and check out is shortly after the first tour begins. (10 am) . You can check in earlier and stay later… but keep in mind that the caverns has guided tours 363 days a year along the concrete trails that curves around all sides of the room, so your privacy is limited during tour hours. There is only one Grand Canyon Caverns Cave motel room, only 364 nights a year. If someone has said they have done it all…have they stayed in the Cave room? Your water is hand carried down and up by staff (100 gallons) and an employee is station on top ground level at the top of the elevator should you need assistance. Not everyone will get to experience this wonderful most unique unusual place in time and in the world.

Our New Caves!

A brand new Discovery! We are very happy and proud that after 7+ years of exploration a new series of very large caverns have been discover adjacent to our current caverns. These new caverns have never been seen by human eyes and our professional explorers are seeing things they have never seen before. It looks like the Grand Canyon Caverns may have just doubled in size! Please take a look some of the first photos of these new caves and formations and keep in mind that no human has ever seen what you are looking at until now!

The professional Cavern Explores from the Arizona Grotto Association is mapping this very significant find. Initial artifacts and rock formations are in many cases unlike anything we have seen before. We hope to have a tour for our guests to these new amazing caves soon.
