While this is no resort, it is a very welcome outpost after a dusty day's wander in Death Valley. The rooms are in cabins surrounding the main draw - an old house with broad porch that holds the restaurant. Parking is cramped but the rooms themselves are comfy: small with just the right amenities and simple decoration. To be honest, this is a long drive from the east side of the park. But it's worthwhile for a return - to enjoy a good beer and hearty meal on the porch and to explore the less-traveled miles of the western Panamints.
- 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
