To be honest, I had fairly low expectations of this Motel. We knew it was quite basic - no TV etc - but the price was good and we thought if we were going to stay in the desert, we may as well be somewhere quite rustic. I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice this place was. The rooms... More

My husband and I and our friends enjoyed this stop on our motorcycle trip very much. The beer was cold and the food and ambience was excellent. The place is a little the worse for wear, but the scenery and wildlife around more than made up for it! This is the only place for miles and we found the peace... More

As we arrived, there weren't any rooms left, so we got the only possibility…to sleep in a 'cabin'. In fact, that's a tent with 2 camp beds. We got the blankets and pilows. It was the pure adventure, but we couldn't expect more because we didn't book in advance. But the thing which is very disappointing was that people came... More

We chose this place because of its location and price. After a long drive, it was a welcome stop, and the only place around for miles. The check in is confusing - we went straight to the bar, where we were told that we needed to check in at the gas station next door. While eating in the bar later,... More

The scenery was amazing, however the actual place was horrible..air con a constant racket all night. Light switch wasnt working...toilet broken & dripping all night...had the worst sleep there. Complete rip off as it was very expensive.

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.

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

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
