I recently stayed here a couple nights while visiting the park. In any of my reviews, I'm always upfront about what places don't have that travelers may or may not care about. First, if this is very off the grid. Virtually the entire park is this way, save for a few miles around the Visitors Center. Panamint Springs meets this... More

Great value, paid $10 per site for a tent. The only reason I don't give 5 stars because the bathroom wasn't great, but if flush able and the site wasn't easy to navigate if arrive after dark. One out of two sinks has no water. When I took shower, it took a while to get the water warm. Water pressure... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch and had a really enjoyable time dining on the patio. We both had burgers and I had a beer of which he resort offers an incredible variety. Our waiter was friendly and efficient which added to the overall experience.

I'm not sure what the complaints are here. I think you can tell from the website what kind of place this is. I paid $10 for my campsite. Flush toilets, showers, fire pit, picnic tables. Felt like a deal to me! It's beautiful and remote. It was really a great experience for me. Different strokes for different folks, I guess... More

If you want to camp, go to Stovepipe wells (warmer in the winter and right in DV). If you want an affordable hotel w/o compromising on quality, go to Lone Pine. After staying at Panamint Springs in 2005 (it was called a motel then), I remembered the place as rustic, simple, comfortable and well maintained. Came back in 2015, and... More

If you're expecting a resort, stop. This is a great camping / RV ground. The site has great views of the valley. Closely located to Darwin Falls (in season). If traveling in the cooler months, pack warm clothing. Tents do not have heat. Facilities clean but not abundant. Plan accordingly.

This place is a bit of a joke. Very expensive for what you get. I picked it out of the other hotels in the Desert because the other places were at least twice as much. But basically you get what you pay for. This place is less than an hours drive from Lone Pine, where you can get much better... More

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
