“The largest dry caverns in the united states”
Stuck in the middle of the Arizona desert between the famous Route 66 towns of Seligman and Kingman, AZ is one of the very best kept secrets along the Mother Road… the Grand Canyon Caverns, and this spring you have an awesome opportunity discover just why so many hardcore travelers and RVers love this little-known destination. Tucked over 200 feet below the earth’s crust, the caverns are the largest dry caverns in the country, all accessible by elevator for you to explore. The Grand Canyon Caverns offer adventure and wonder both above and below the ground with thousands of acres of truly unspoiled air, sky, and prairie all around. The Grand Canyon Caverns feature a classic vintage motel, a diner, a gift shop, lots of photo-ops, and even a rodeo ring that often hosts cowboy round-ups. Because of the multiple things all in one place, the GCC has become a popular rally spot for traveling groups of Route 66 enthusiasts, car clubs, RVers, and even aviators. That's right... GCC has it's own airport. If you really want to be adventurous while at the Grand Canyon Caverns, forsake your comfy RV or motel room for one night in the Underground Cave Suite! It’s pricey at $800 per night (for 2 people, goes up $100 for each additional person up to a total of 6), but it may be one of the most unique motel rooms in the world… The Underground Cave Suite, according the the Grand Canyon Caverns, is the “largest, deepest, darkest, oldest, quietest motel room in the world.” The suite is 200 ft. by 400 ft. with ceilings that soar in places to over 70 feet… All formed over 65 MILLION years ago, 220 feet below the surface. As you can imagine, there is zero natural light and no living thing- no bats, no mice. Nothing. The air you breathe in the suite travels 65 miles through cracks in the limestone all the way from the Grand Canyon- a process that both purifies the air and leaves it devoid of moisture and humidity. To get to the world’s deepest, darkest motel suite you take an elevator down 22 stories into the belly of the caverns where you’ll find a couple double beds, a living room, a collection of vintage books and magazines, a functioning record player, and a bathroom. Water is brought down in buckets by the motel staff. -Roadtrippers We are in the middle of 3,000,000 acres of the most unspoiled land left in the world.

This place is awesome. First cavern I have seen with a hotel inside of the cave!! A must see for sure.
Very interesting. For an exorbitant fee, you can stay the night in the caverns. If you take the 5pm tour, you're likely to get a little more out of the experience (it's the last of the day and they take their time). Beautiful caverns. They give a military discount.
We camped a night here on the way to Havasu Falls. It was surprisingly nice! The bathroom... trailer?... had plenty of individual bathrooms with sink, shower and toilet. They looked newly renovated and had hot water!! We even got some free firewood for our fire. Very nice people and very good price for the night.
Fun stop on Route 66. We stayed in the motel. They have a small room with vintage stuff for the kids and lots of curios things to look at. Old cars ( claim to be inspiration for the movie Cars), mini golf, horse rides, and of course the caverns. Free continental breakfast.
