          This underground motel is well decorated and we feel it an awesome place to stay, it costs us a little more money but the value is not low. It is our 1st time to experience an underground accommodation and we loved it. It is highly recommended to stay at this motel if you are travelling to Coober Pedy.

          Nice enough hotel for coober Pedy”

          Bed was comfortable, room was a bit expensive but I guess that's just coober pedy. Once you're in your room its just like any other motel. The area on top of the roof is a great place to look out over coober pedy. Coober pedy itself is an unattractive dump.

          A hidden gem. These guys have an amazing underground experience waiting for everyone. Clean plenty of room with a well appointed motel. We stayed in room 5 which away from the ‘main corridor ‘ When we went to view the rest of the premises it was amazing.

          It was so awesome staying in a motel dug underground into a hill. Clime the hill for spectacular 360 degree views and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. So much to do in town and most within walking distance if you're so inclined. Quiet and very comfortable definitely worth staying in

          Underground Motel ”

          A very pleasant surprise, only negative was our first nights sleep badly disturbed by a very noisy late arrival group of Asian tourists talking excitedly unttil late after midnight leading us to havw to get out of bed and tell them to have some consideration for others. The management were very responsive next morning and issued warnings to those staying on for another night. The second nightmarewas significantly quieter though banging doors in the morning rush to get moving were also quite loud. This is more a reflection on other ggueststhan the accommodation but the underground layout exacerbates the pproblem with hard reverberative surfaces.
