Very disappointing. The motel room was very old and falling apart. The shower was rusty; the sink was falling away from the wall; the carpet was filthy. It very badly needs updating. I would not recommend this motel to anyone.

We booked a cabin for one night and it was way too expensive for what we got. I understand that the place is remote and it's hard to maintain a business there but for the price they are charging the least they could do was remove the disgusting carpet in the bathroom and clean up the shower or at least...

For the most part the sites farther away from the group site are flatter for tents. There appeared to be no water spigots in the campground for filling water bottles and bladders, which was very strange. We did not trust the irrigation spigots which were plumbed with black garden-grade PVC tubing that we were not sure was rated for drinking... More

The above bad comments are absolutely TRUE. It is an unfortunate fact that in the States people can claim anything, whether or not it is correct, without recourse. Be aware. I would say that rather than nasty this resort is absolutely disgusting. Holes in carpets, nails sticking out of walls, a filthy shower, filthy bathroom and paint peeling off everywhere,... More

Don't go here expecting anything but a rustic "Western" experience....This is a very remote hotel that makes a great base for exploring the western side of Death Valley National Park. The owners are lovely and are very helpful about where to go and what to do. As I said before, this is a very remote location with very limited internet... More

Tents here are already setup, on concrete slabs, with two cots. $35/night; larger tents have four cots. They say they have tent sites but we came after they closed (9 pm) and these sites looked very, very rocky. The restaurant opens at 7 am and features a buffet of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits. Unlimited coffee and tea. This is... More

This is not panamint springs resort's fault, but we arrived around midnight after a long drive. I was completely beat and ready to just head into our room and fall asleep. The staff told us the door would be unlocked the the light would be on. I'm guessing a squatter saw the same thing and decided to try to get... More

Stayed there for two nights in winter. Yes, the location is remote and all, but still the place could be a much better value if owners cared. Every negative opinion you will read here is true so I will not repeat those. Just a short note for landscape photographers, the place is quite a bit cheaper than the rest in... More

Rooms are tiny. The place has not been updated in 60 years. Insufficient outlets for charging electronics, unsightly water damage around shower, sole heat source (small portable unit) barely worked, and advertised wifi was virtually nonfunctional.

I don't understand how the Cassell brothers, who have owned Panamit Springs Resort for sometime and at least one of whom lives on the premises, can maintain a place in this spectacular location in such shabby condition. The property high above the valley with breathtaking views makes it a special place to spend a night. Our room was anything but.... More
