The Lookout Cave Underground Motel, Coober Pedy
Service was not friendly at all. As we arrived, dropped by someone external to the hotel we got told the motel usually provides thid service so we asked for the check-out that they please drop us at bus station, we got answered that because we had not asked at time of booking we would get charged extra and they did... then they insisted on a convenient time for them to drop us off even if it was really inconvenient for us, nonethelesd we arrived with 15mins advance and had to wait 35 mind so they were 20 mins late but never got any excuse for that. Eventhough the hotel is nice but a bit far from center we would not recommend it for their lack of service.

Definitely worth an experience
Definitely worth an experience! Looking at reception area I was worried hotel would be run down but rest of hotel is in much better shape. Each hotel room is fully carved out of stone with no windows yet air vents give good air throughout the night and light in hallway doesn't make it 100% dark. Would stay there again.

Great Motel .. No .. I mean Really Great Motel
What a great place to stay. The service is excellent. The room small but very nicely appointed. The little things they offer in the room make a stay here 5 star. We loved it. Better than most 5 star hotels when it comes to finer details being thought through or supplied. Well done.
