We arrived at the Panamint ‘Resort’ at 10 PM, which is considered in this establishment ‘after hours.’ They left a note stating the room was open. After settling in we discovered there was no hot water. The next morning there was still no hot water so I went down to the general store (which operates as the front desk) and... More

180 different types of beers, mostly high end craft beers. They even had some of them on tap. That was just awesome. The Russian waitress was very pleasant and very service minded. The pizza I ate worked to. Compliments to the chef. I liked the view too... I do not mind that employes use the facility to drink some beers... More

We had been looking forward to going here for months. After a day in Death Valley sight seeing we arrived and the place is in a great location. We registered and went to our room to 'cool off' and it was very hot. We thought the room just needed to cool down because of the heat. We were so hot... More

Truly a magical place Death Valley is aptly named because it tried to claim the life of my van on the 4th of July… After being stuck, without a running vehicle and without any cell phone service as the sun started setting, I ended up at the Panamint Springs Resort, where I was helped by the staff, particularly Aaron. Their... More

We were lucky to get a last minute reservation here after we passed the last city in California that had a motel and drove for 3 hours through Death Valley. The room was pretty nice. It had 3 queen beds, although a very rustic area. No TV, no internet, and no cell phone connection. You are really out in the... More

It's a little oasis in the middle of nowhere, good services like gas station, general store, little pub / restaurant serving comfort food like burgers and pizzas but good quality and plenty of it! Yes the rooms are very basic, just a bed and bathroom, the only downside is the air con, it is constantly on in the summer as... More

I will begin by saying that the scenery was amazing. Stargazing was at it's best. The room was clean, but not attractive. The restaurant was below average, and going elsewhere meant a long drive. We did enjoy the silence after about 10:00 (or whenever it was that the restaurant closed). With no television and no traffic, the only noise to... More

Not a great first impression...looks pretty run down and the gas station next door is a blot on the landscape. Found the manager of the motel quite unfriendly and there are far too many rules and threats of additional $$ if you break the rules. The room was adequate- all that was left was the room with 2 double beds.... More

We have stayed in the tent provided and we both loved it. It was my first camping in the desert experience and I am glad we have decided to rent a tent provided instead of camping with our own. Be aware that there are a lot of coyotes around the campus and they make funny noises at night, but they... More

My first impression of this little place was not the best but I had read the reviews and so I was prepared. Rustic is probably the best word. Room adequate and clean. Food average - dinner same as anywhere but breakfast left a little to be desired. Service was always friendly. However when I went out early the next morning... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Panamint Springs is a small western-style resort seated in the beautiful Panamint Valley in Death Valley National Park. Marvelous views of distant sand dunes and the soaring 11,000' Panamint Mountains complete the setting for leisure dining and relaxation. Panamint Springs offers 14 motel rooms & 1 cottage, restaurant, campgrounds, RV park, gas station, and mini-mart. Our motel rooms are very basic, but clean. Our rooms are cooled with an evaporative cooling system. Some units offer their own A/C window unit in addition to this. We are pet friendly, however additional fees apply. If you are planning on doing some exploring, you'll find that Panamint Springs makes a great base camp for neighboring ghost towns, abandoned mines, and even desert waterfalls. Great for 4-wheel drive exploring, hiking, biking, or just relaxing! ... more   less
