Having a great stay at Mud Hut Motel. Rooms big, comfortable, clean. Staff friendly. Close to everything. Quiet. Good breakfast. If passing this way again would not hesitate to stay at this motel Highly recommended for the leisure or business traveller. Reasonably price for what it is.

Room Tip: Any room would be good and if you do not want to sleep below ground this motel is for you

Stayed early June. Very clean, lots of room. Good breakfast. Very close to centre of town. Very friendly staff, provide airport pickup and return. Let us have late room departure as flight left at 12. Unique construction from rammed earth.

Big rooms, good beds, very clean, friendly staff, quiet location all at a reasonable price for this part of the world. We stayed for 2 nights in mid April. The room had a queen bed and two singles but there was still ample room available for the bags, esky, food box and to sit in the chairs. The staff offered to put our esky bricks in the freezer and given reception was open at 7am we could easily retrieve them before we left!

Had a great sleep here in these big rooms. The rooms are above ground in mud hut dwellings. I think however it can get hot or quite cold in these as there is air conditioning and heaters available. No undercover car parking which can make the car quite hot. Very clean rooms and quite big and in the centre of town.

This Motel was great! The AC was a welcome luxury having been out in the heat shopping first.
We had a queen and a single bed in our room as well as a table and chairs and still had more than enough room to walk around without bumping into each other. Space for all our gear too.
The water pressure wasnt as good as other places I have stayed, but it was fine, especially when you think that water is not in good supply in the middle of the desert!

OMG. This place is awesome – a diamond in the rough. It is a must to stay there. It truly looks like it is build out of mud. Everything is renovated. Not only was the outside amazingly clean, so was the inside. Our room was huge. It had two beds, table and chairs, plasma TV, desk and enough room for suitcases and all of the other sheesh you happened to bring along. Best of all, they provided free WiFi – finally someone did. The bathroom looked new and super clean. The shower head was kinda quirky. One negative remark though, there was a sewer smell coming from the bathroom drains at night. It was not strong, but it was there. Maybe that explains why a small screened slot of the bathroom window is permanently open? We kept the door closed at night. The motel has a cool dining room, and breakfast was wonderful. This was a true unexpected experience, and the only place we would ever consider again.

The Mud Hut Motel was a good choice for us in Coober Pedy. The room was quite large and very comfortable. The AC system kept it cool, even though it was HOT outside. We were given a modem to use in the room so that we could use the wifi. Again, that worked well. The hotel is well located, across the street from the Information Centre and close to the downtown area. Coober Pedy is an interesting town, with lots of unique places to visit and explore.
