Desert Cave Hotel, Coober Pedy, Australia

Technically, only one room of Desert Cave's 19 underground hotel suites was converted; the rest were burrowed in the 1980s. Underground Room 3 once was home to an opal miner. Managing Director Robert Coro says the hotel "retained the original marks on the sandstone wall. In the old days a miner lived, cooked, slept and stored his gear in one room."
