The tour was interesting, but these dry caverns were not treated with the environmental care that you might expect for a natural wonder. The caverns contained a suite that people can rent for $850 a night. We were told that people who spend the night have free run of the caverns. That doesn't seem like a safe or environmentally friendly... More

Take the tour starting on an elevator descending 200 ft into passages and "rooms," big enough to have been designated bomb shelters in the 60's and stocked with food and water to accommodate hundreds of people. The supplies are still there as well as a stage for musical events never used because the entrepreneurs neglected to check on venue requirements... More

A good break on Route 66. Take the full tour. Cool caverns 21 stories down. A lot of interesting history.

I wouldn't stay there (inside the cave in the suite or outside motel). But definitely worth a visit. Staff were friendly. The guide was great. I feel bad for a previous reviewer who was stuck there; no light, no sound, 21 stories below surface, nothing lives there. My teenager, and a few others in our group, enjoyed the tour as... More

An amazing hotel to stay at before heading to Havasupai falls. Awesome cavern tour. Amazing home made dinner and pie. Wonderfully quaint Route 66 experience.

Stopped by on our way east through Arizona. Last visit was 23 years ago. Worth a stop. A tad bit pricey, but if you can get past that, go for it. Cave is a dry cave, and not many formations. Tour was very good though. And our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Recommended.

My kids and I stopped in for a visit. Our tour guide Lawrence did a great job narrating the tour. Considered going back for the Ghost tour, but time just didn't permit in our schedule. Would recommend this place to anyone!

We had the one night stay in the cavern suite package, which came with a choice of private tours, & the choice to have dinner at the ground level diner or have it brought to the cavern suite. We had dinner in the cavern suite & it added to the whole experience. The food was good but we did expect... More

Just off the old and original Historic Route 66, between Peach Springs and Seligman, you can find the Grand Canyon Caverns - if you pull over to the Grand Canyon Caverns Hotel, look over at the not-so-well maintained miniature golf course with a fascinating life-sized fake dinosaur collection for the kids to admire, and have the desk clerk explain how...
