The only hotel that will not let you look at a room
High on the hill next door to the Lookout Cave and Underground Hotel is the similarly named - The Underground Motel.
The front view of the 2 little rooms on the hill.
Unfortunately they would not let us into any of the rooms nor show us their hotel, as they thought we may have negative things to say about them.
The lady working there explained that they have had several people say negative things about them on public forums and the boss had advised her they weren't prepared to deal with anymore.
We were not permitted to look at any of the rooms, nor any of their facilities, even after I explained that we were not there to critique their business only to tell people about them and bring them some publicity.
It seems quite a shame to me as it looks very unique and cute on the outside.
There are two little cabin style rooms at the front with dirt roof and chimneys style air vents out the top. Both with sweet little balconies that overlook the views.
The relaxation area at the front of the 2 little rooms.
The rest of the establishment I can tell you very little about and I am left wondering what was so bad that people would write negative thoughts about. My experience with the rest of the people in Coober Pedy is that they are warm, welcoming and very genuine about everything they do in life.
