Stayed here for one night in March, 2010 for $180. Was tempted by the whole 'underground' thing and therefore booked an underground room. On arrival, it's clear that the hotel is probably the best in the town as all the others look shabby and more 'motel'y. However the (mostly) Indian staff appeared dis-interested, the decor was dated and a bit naff and I have to question whether my room was actually underground at all (I do note their website quotes 'underground-style' living).
Room was very warm all night (told there was no need for air con).
Dubious electrics too (see photo) - the hairdryer was three months overdue being certified!
If you HAVE to stay the night in the tourist trap that is Coober Pedy then it's probably the best you're going to get. If you don't have to, just keep driving!More
