Known as the “largest, deepest, darkest, oldest, quietest motel room in the world,” the Grand Canyon Caverns Suite in Arizona ensures an experience unlike any other. With caverns and walls over 65 million years old and located 22 feet underground, guests will find themselves completed isolated in the largest dry cavern in the United States. Not for everyone, this suite is the only one available in these caverns; for those who’d rather stay above ground, the motel offers plenty of other rooms.
The underground suite is completely furnished with two double beds, a living room, a library of old books (including a National Geographic collection dating back to 1917), and a working record player complete with records to choose from.
According to the motel’s website, guests should keep in mind that the caverns hold guided tours 363 days a year along the concrete trails that curve around all sides of the suite; so privacy is limited during tour hours.
Adventure seekers will find a plethora of activities from cavern tours and ghost walks to horseback riding and rafting day trips. A mile up the road guests will find a restaurant with a full bar and screened patio.
