“cheapest in town”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have visted Coober Pedy a number of times and always check out the accommodation prices and options but each time the desert view is the best value. The apartments are massive and great for families or 2 couples. As with everything in Coober Pedy they are a little rough around the edges but hosts are always happy to see you and beds and showers are spotless.

Room Tip: they don't ask for a deposit so easy to book

We stayed in this very large and comfortable underground apartment for 3 nights, and really enjoyed the stay. The managers were very friendly, and although the apartment was modestly furnished, it was all very comfortable and had everything we needed, We were amazed at how spacious it was - a large kitchen/dining room, large living room, and two large bedrooms, as well as a laundry for hand-washing, and a bathroom. It was very pleasant inside, and a few blocks (walking distance) to town. We highly recommend it for families, or for those who wish to cook for themselves, and have plenty of room to relax. There was a swimming pool and BBQ outside.

I stayed for a night here and got an upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment due to my reservation going missing. I suspect all the apartments might be like that, but regardless, the room was great. Very cool and refreshing after a long drive to get there. Friendly service, the boss was away but the staff were great. Looking forward to staying again on my way back down south.

Out of town, so very quiet and several garden settings under the trees to sit and relax. Pool is great. I have stayed here before and would book to stay again. Very clean apartments with everything provided for a very comfortable stay. Tony and his family really do make visitors feel at home.

Wow, what can I say about the Desert View Motel. This place has the WOW factor, fantastic accommodations, spacious, clean and the owner Tony who greeted us on arrival, blew us away with his hospitality. It was like greeting a long lost friend. We ended up staying two nights and would highly recommend this place to other travellers as THE only place to stay in Coober Pedy. Very reasonably priced and the welcome you will get from the owners is amazing.

If you are wanting a traditional Coober Pedy underground style motel, you cannot beat this place for quality or value. The pool is absolutely fantastic and kept beautifully clean.

Our stayed at Desert view was marked by very helpful service from the owner and the novelty of sleeping underground.
The accomodation was clean and neat with all we needed for a few nights.
The pool was still quite cool but would be great come the middle of summer.
