I was there with my daughter and my wife during our trip through the Death Valley to Las Vegas. I think that "bicycledude" did a fair appraisal of the place: basic structure in one of the most fantastic place you can ever be. There are other mothels on the way, but they are too "touristy" for my taste (you know, fake saloons, fake cowboys and associated pharaphernalia...) and much, much more expensive! The restaurant of the motel is nothing to tell home about, but far from terrible. Overall, I believe it's a good deal.

- 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
