Cost was $6.50 per person for a 12 minute tour. The tour guide really rushed us through the interior. There was also a zoo on the property which if it was included in the $6.50 admission might have made up for it. Didn't do the zoo. There are two stores on the property. One is more high end than the... More

I love seeing this type of unique place. Hole 'N the Rock is located about 10 to 15 minutes south of Moab. A man blasted sandstone from this giant rock to create a 5,000 square foot house. The family's original furniture and decorations are still there. For our family of 6 it cost us $32 (4 of us were adult... More

I loved this place. The guy blasted a 5000 sqf house out of the side of a rock. They had some cool antiques and welded artwork. Nice curio shop as well. We enjoyed the visit. The tour was 6 bucks. I was impressed.

What an interesting place. They have some interesting art work. It is kind of off by itself and there is a small zoo (we didn't go in).

driving from salt lake to moab i came across this disgusting place. they have painted on the rock faces in huge (maybe 10 feet high) white letters. all over utah people seem to really respect nature. this is the most flagrant violation of the environment that i have seen in a long time and a total trun off. i would...

I am so saddened that you would review a place that you did not even stop in and visit. If you had, you would have found out the history of this location. You would have found out that those letters on the rock were painted in the 1950's by a gentleman named Del Koops and they are grandfathered into the... More

It was kinda pricey to go on a tour of the home - there is a tour guide that takes you through, which I understand why they do it, but made it somewhat rushed and slightly uncomfortable because they are waiting for you to hurry up and move to the next thing when you want to maybe look closer at...

This attraction is located in the Canyonland's on US Highway 191, north of Monticello, UT, and south of Moab, UT. You have to watch for it, because the road has many curves and rocks that jut out to where it is difficult to see the Hole in the Rock until you are almost to it. It has a big "Hole... More

We had a couple people tell us that this place is something you don't want to miss...trust me that is 30 minutes and 30$ we will never get back. The tour was short, & expensive for our family of six. The poor animals that were stuffed looked terrible and we will have nightmares forever. The poor donkey looked like his... More

For a truly unique experience that you will always remember, you have to stop at Hole N' the Rock and take a "house" tour. I have done it twice now. Once in 2003 and again in 2011. Like I stated before, it will be one of the most unique tours you will ever take in your life. This guy built... More

This place has lots of cheap tourist crap. And the zoo is a hell-hole for the animals. It stinks and the animals look very dejected and have pavlovian responses to seeing a human in the expectation of a food reward. I wish I hadn't spent $4.50 to enter the zoo as it just encourages the owners to keep this sad... More
