Mud Hut Motel

Top choice motel in Coober Pedy
Image by

The rustic-looking walls here are made from rammed earth, and despite the grubby name this is one of the cleanest (and newest) places in town (and indeed, all of South Australia). By far the best motel option if you don't want to sleep underground. Two-bedroom apartments sleep six (extra person $20) and have kitchens. Central location; free airport transfers.
