The Montezuma Castle is a very well maintained park and is protected by the U.S. Park Service. The weather is specifically hot and hence, the place is entirely air conditioned. The monument is situated at an elevation of 90 feet above, and was built by skilled builders and engineers on the cliff above, wherein the original structure is still present up to 90%. The place is very pet friendly also. The castle is literally situated between rocks and is an easy walk up there. There’s cliff dwellings and the access to it is easy. This place is equally important in terms of historical proceedings as with the Indians who used to live here.

Montezuma Castle National Monument Reviews & Ratings
This is a well preserved cliff dwelling that shows the history of the early Southwest region of the US. The cost to get in can be steep for a large family but if you purchase an annual pass to the national parks you can get in for free as well at other parks in the area such as the Grand Canyon, and Petrified Forest. There are smooth paved walking trails to see everything so access to the park should be easy for most anyone. The park rangers and staff are very friendly and willing to help out.
Awesome place! Awesome people! The people who work at this park really do it out of love. The flute player adds a really ethereal quality, making you feel like you're back in time. And the store has so many awesome options!!
A quick stop is worth it! Seeing a different way that Native Americans lived is enlightening. It's inspiring how people lived off the land and, in this case, in the cliffs. Very cool!
Very interesting visit. However, I question the $10 per person price tag. Thankfully, the ranger was kind enough to use our previous Grand Canyon National Park entrance receipt and allow us to upgrade to an America the Beautiful annual pass. The monument is interesting, good for about a 30 stroll around the grounds and museum. The museum also has a very good junior ranger scavenger hunt for the kids. I wouldn’t quite rank this a must-see if strapped for time in the Grand Canyon area, but fun if you have the time.
Very short trail, but the history of this place is amazing. Staff were very friendly and nice. The place was easy to find. Trail is flat, and easy for all ages
