We stayed here in the pre-erected tents as an alternative to using our tent and staying in Death Valley's other camp sites on the valley floor which are very hot. The resort is rustic but what do you expect? It's in the middle of one of the hottest places on earth! It's going to cost a bit more and be... More

You share the aircondition system with all rooms, so you cannot switch the system off or monitor your temperature. This system makes too much not and gives no cooling. The room is very basic, bad WiFi signal, thin walls... Also to many rules, how to use the towels, dont make noise after 10pm ... Alltough we were awakend by a... More

Realizing we were in Death Valley... This wasn't a very nice place. The room was OK but there was a swamp cooler supplying conditioned air to several rooms. It had no hope of keeping up with the demand. We took bets on whether the ceiling fan was going to disconnect from its mount and fall on one of us in... More

Don't come expecting five stars, because it is not. However the bedroom is immaculate and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in summer and the room was not too hot even without a/c. The bar was extremely well stocked with local and craft beers and the food was very fresh considering the location, cost was as expected for the... More

I and my 3 friends stayed at the Panamint Springs Resort for one night. The property itself is quite charming from the outside. They also have a store with very basic supplies. The room itself was very basic and worn down but in general OK. There was no internet. Food at the hotel was quite good, especially the super good... More

Yes, the PSR is basic - no TV (probably good because the walls are a bit thin), no reliable WiFi (we never actually got a signal), and a bit weathered, but heck, is that really a problem? It wasn't for us. We (and our cat) spent one night here last week and it was just fine. We don't watch TV... More

This place is very basic and you can hear the other people talking in the room next to you. Restaurant if OK and again nothing fancy! Across the street there is a camping ground if you do not want to pay close to a hundred dollar a night for a cabin. Gas station in available with small store. Wi-Fi is... More

PSR is a rustic desert location where if you don't mind roughing it a bit, can be a great place to stay with a big porch to lounge on, great food & a vast selection of beer's. The rooms are a little weathered but the showers work great and by desert standards the prices can't be beat! Removed from the... More

The details did say this was no frills accommodation but it was way below that. Bathroom was awful - the shower had peeling paintwork inside and outside and there was an animal in the bathroom ceiling space in the night! The whole room looked neglected and the outside appearance - peeling paintwork, broken chairs outside just about summed the place... More

The location is amazing: in the middle of the Death Valley. And you can tell it also by the rv park that has cacti and desert flowers all over the place. But this is all. It's in the middle of the desert so don't expect anything fancy (the rv sewage flood after 2 minutes from our arrival, and we had... More
