Awesome motel experience. Great value for money and very friendly and helpful staff. Coober Pedy is not just a stop off on the way to Adelaide. The heart of the town is underground and the people are genuinely friendly.

We were not in the motel but one of 2 rooms completely underground. You saw the parking space, the garden and the door. Everything else was underground. I was blown away. There was a double bed a small lounge room and a bathroom. The walls were natural. We were so glad we stayed here and the staff were so welcoming...

Great friendly people, clean neat well thought out set up . Well cared for gardens and surrounds, very peaceful setting away from town . Cool fresh and unique . Suitable for families , rooms that accommodate up to 6 people. I'm very impressed with the facility , as so much is not great here in Coober Pedy.

The rooms are set out so that two bedrooms share a communal space (lounge area) and kitchen where there is DIY toast and cereal for breakfast. Smart, clean rooms and friendly owners. Good wifi too. Forget that you are inside a hill most of the time!

Great friendly service who go above and beyond for their guest. Homely accomodation & very clean. Breaky provisions of cereal, bread for toast with condiments also a large bowl of fruit. Value for your buck especially if you have kids. Safe bunks for them too!

The Underground Motel is a very comfortable place to stop after a long day in the car. From booking to checking out the service was friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. A lovely place to star gaze in the evening.

We stayed in the underground 2 bedroom family unit for 3 nights. It had everything we needed including kitchenette, bathroom and TV/mobile/internet connection. Comfortable and inviting. Merce was the only staff member there and was wonderful to us. So friendly and nothing was too much trouble. She even collected our clothes from our bathroom when I asked about laundry. She...
