We did our research, read the reviews, liked the price and booked our room for four nights. Room #6 was just what we needed. It was clean, bed nicely made, had side tables and a chair. There is room to hang garments, and shelves suitable to carefully balance a suitcase and miscellaneous items. The bathroom was also clean. Everything was... More

The place is pretty much worn down. The walls are thin, and appeared to be suffering from decay at some places. The one-piece shower had cracks and some parts broken off. OK, so this place is in the desert and they claim they can't provide internet, but that's not an excuse to let the place decay. And for $120 one... More

Second stop of our Vacation, $110 a night in Death Valley (kind-of) — We arrived, paid for the room, went to the assigned room #2, Door was falling apart with a 1" gap at the bottom, I walked in and said to my husband, No Way! We went back to the gas station/store to try to cancel the reservation (less... More

What an experience! (And I don't mean that in a positive way.) I have no problem with staying in an old hotel property, but this place is so run down I can't believe that they're still renting out rooms! See photos for details of the mold and mildew in the bathroom ... "things" underneath the bathroom sink, the open hatch... More

We stayed for one night recently and found it reasonably tolerable. I think they only have one king bed room and we had that. It was a little on the dingy side, but clean enough. We slept reasonably well in the bed, but it took a little while for the hot water to come through to the shower the next... More

We intended making a brief coffee stop at the Resort on our way to Furnace Creek however service was extremely slow. Although coffee was served quite promptly, we had to wait an awfully long time for our order of apple pie. No apology was given and there were very few other people in the bar. In the end our patience... More

This campground was pretty full when we arrived. We saw 2 porta-Johns and assumed that was the extent of the facilities. Later on in the evening I "discovered" a bathroom with 1 or 2 functioning toilets and a funky shower. We did luck out with our campsite as it was near the border between the campground and the desert. The... More

We rented a tent cabin for two nights. Some holes in the tent but other than that it was clean and had two cots in it. The men's restrooms only had one toilet working so there were often people waiting in line although there were a couple of portable toilets. Wifi was not working either. They have in nice restaurant,... More

We choose Panamint Springs because of the location (in the park, but not in the fee area), and because of the prize. Resort is definitely a bit of a stretch. We rented a tent cabin, which was actually very nice. The cots inside were clean, and as comfortable as you would expect cots to be. The tent itself was sound,... More

Don’t expect much. The rooms, mine anyway, are in need of major repairs. But for my needs it was a clean bed, shower (not so clean, see photo) and a restaurant where I needed them. If you don’t mind driving another 50 miles Lone Pine has several better places to choose from. Please note that there is a ceiling fan... More
