My husband and I got in just before dark and checked into an RV site overnight. Lights were out in the bathroom/shower bldg. with no switch in sight so walked over to the gas station where we checked in and they got the maintenance person to get them on. Very disappointing as I was looking forward to a nice hot shower after a long days ride but found the bathroom and showers were quite filthy- wet floor around toilets, tissue, paper towels and garbage on the floors, the overhead light fixture was laden with dead bugs, sinks, showers and floors dirty so I had to forego the shower. Also the door to the bathrooms weren't very secure either. There were overflowing trashcans and misc. junk from the approach behind the bldg. that appeared to have been forgotten. I recall the clerk who was pleasant remarking how they didn't charge for the showers....thank God for that!
- 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
