Live updates: Tour bus collides with big rig in fatal crash in Desert Hot Springs

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."
