Grand Canyon Caverns Suite - Deepest, Darkest, Oldest Motel Room In The WorldGrand Canyon  
Caverns Suite

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 220 feet underground, guests will find themselves completely 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.

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.

And they have their own retro-styled gas station where you can see what Route 66 looked like in its heyday.

If you think arriving by car is for the poor, then you'll be happy to know they have an airport too with a 5,100 feet (1.5 km) long runway.

One night costs a whopping $1,000 per night for two guests.

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.
