This is your only choice for an hour in either direction. Hotel was very run down. Bed was uncomfortable. Bathroom was old and broken and covered in nasty carpet. Lots of noise from other rooms / cabins. Restaurant near by smelled bad, but if you sat on porch could get a decent beer and pizza. On the plus side, the... More

Was a fascinating stay. Exploring the grandeur of Death Valley I am glad that there is at least one place to stay on the West Side of the park. I appreciate the resort is still here to enjoy after almost 100 years. I ppreciate the history and the costs involved in getting even basic supplies or fuel into such a... More

The online description of Panamint Springs "Resort" is rather dishonest. There is no cooling system to speak of, and no heating system. Upon arrival, our room was unclean, and the shower was filled with rust and mold. My husband went to speak with management to see if we could switch rooms or cancel our reservation. We waited over 45 minutes... More

I stayed in a queen room and it was very clean and comfortable. When I originally made the booking, there were only tent cabins available but Elmira was kind enough to put me on 'automatic notification' if they had a cancellation for a room (which they did). All the staff I encountered were so friendly and helpful and the food... More

We stayed in the tent cabins for two nights. The tent cabins themselves were as expected and as shown in the pictures. I liked them. The beds/cots were ok, a bit squeaky and creaky when moving about in the night. You literally just get the tent and the cots, with a parking space right next to the cabin. For $35... More

A friend recommended we stay in Panamint Springs when driving from Yosemite to Las Vegas so I googled and Panamint Springs Resort came up. After the reviews, I expected simple and rustic but on arrival I was still surprised! It was like a movie set. Rusty old machinery surrounding a fuel station selling the most expensive fuel we have seen... More

Best Pizza I've had since moving to this area. Actually the best pizza I've had since I was in Italy! Burgers are to die for. The people that own this place really care about the quality of what they produce. It will be completely worth the long drive into the mountains. Tons of beers to chose from. Victoria (owner/server) is... More

We were a bit nervous turning up here because of poor tripadvisor reviews & also being told not to expect too much by the staff member we spoke to when making our booking. In fact the room was big, very clean and well provisioned with free water, good soaps & shampoos. The aircon worked well but was permanently on and... More

This motel is in great location, looking out over the hills around Death Valley. We enjoyed cold beers and a great feed - reasonably priced - at the co-located restaurant/bar. Good spot to watch the stunning sunsets. Staff were friendly and helpful. The nights sky also offers some good star-gazing opportunities. The room was spacious - but take your shoes... More

This hotel is just a joke! More than 100$ a night for a crappy room... the mention "our room are old" is just not stolen... the shower was almost not working and dirty. People are asked to park correctly but it was not the case at all, the temperature was so high that we asked for the A/C which "for... More
