Walked into the room and wanted to walk straight back out and go stay somewhere better. There was a bed, no headboard. It smelt dirty, like the sheets weren't fresh or the bedding was really old and grimy. We both felt dirty from the bed so took a shower in the very old and basic shower (at least the water... More

Hey maybe having the title " resort " would mislead you but as others have mentioned this place is as if situated on the moon in a national park. The accommodations are BASIC, the staff super friendly and helpful, the beer selection could be the best on the planet and the mornin coffee is a solid ten. Sure you have... More

The room was nice and clean. Also they have a Bar and a small store/gasoline station. Please remenber that you are in the middle of the... More

Spent three nights. Least expensive of the area resorts. No frills rooms but adequate and clean. Staff was eclectic and entertaining. Limited menu but good food. Decent breakfast buffet. Beautiful redwood bar. Huge selection of beers and microbrews. Highest priced gasoline in the area by far. Least centrally located of the death valley resorts but not a bad drive to... More

While we were travelling to panamint springs (death valley) we ran into some car trouble. Important to note is that our AT&T plan we bought was not getting any reception in the valley. The Towing company and our insurance gave us a lift back to El Portal. When we contacted the hotel (7pm) we were told that we'd still have... More

I find it shocking that this person has posted a 1 star review for their cancellation experience and expected us not to charge them for their cancellation. They called us at 8pm (not 7pm), THE NIGHT of their reservation to inform us they were not coming. Their reservation was for our room with 1 king bed, which is our most... More

Stayed 1 night - drove from Los Angeles, arriving at dusk. Good information at check in about park. Rooms are fairly basic, but quiet and spacious. Obviously not renovated for some time, but they are definitely clean. Restaurant is fine - dinner was accompanied by flying bats on the balcony, and breakfast buffet is ok. A perfectly reasonable place.

There seem to be two types of people. Those that have a wide tolerance for rustic lodging - like I do, and those who don't - like my wife. I just spent a long weekend at the Panamint Springs Resort with a group of friends. You choose this hotel for the location and not the lodging amenities. Fortunately, TripAdvisor reviews... More

We were only there for a few hours, short road trip from camping in lone pine. Panamint springs resort is an okay place. It is what it is because of where it is. All you high and mighty urban city dwellers need to get a clue, if your looking for a 5 star resort then just stay home. I recommend... More

Unable to stay here due to Tioga Pass Road being closed. I understand their cancellation policy, however, profiteering due to fires is not understandable. We advised them by phone immediately we could, however it was too late. $176.96 is not a small amount of money to travellers.

We are absolutely not "profiteering due to fires". We have a very fair cancellation policy, especially considering that we are located in a national park. We require 48 hours notice of any cancellation, regardless of the reason and whether particular people feel that they deserve special treatment. This particular reason for cancellation was not very compelling since the there are... More

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
