It's always amusing reading complaints about places like this. If you want five bars on your cell phone, don't like being hot, and want cheap gas, what on earth are you doing in Death Valley? This motel gets it water from a small creek via a five mile long 3-4" pipe that the owner has to personally maintain. Think about that when you're having your shower. There are things that could be improved here -- the check-in woman in the gas station was not exactly friendly and the owner does seem to prefer shooting the breeze with people in the restaurant to helping the waitresses, but the food was good, our room was cool enough in August, the room was clean, and everyone else was friendly. Also, check out the prices at Furnace Creek (which looks like DisneyLand) or Stove Pipe Wells. You'll find that this place is a pretty good deal. I gave it three stars because it's basic accommodation. They probably should drop the `Resort' part of the name though since it obviously misleads people.
- 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
