If you are looking for an opportunity to apply the term “rustic charm” you should check out the Panamint Springs Resort. We stayed at the ‘2 Bedroom Cottage’, just for one night, and we found the place to be somewhat saddening. On the one hand it really, really and urgently needs a total makeover. It is run down to the... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the 'permanent' tents, on the other side of the road to the restaurant. Facilities were basic, showers could use a deep clean; but at the end of the day you're in the middle of the dessert! Location is fine for all the sights to see, but after 4-5 of them it's just too hot. I'm... More

The structure is quite old, but the worst thing was the air conditioned!!! Too high and horribly noisy!!!! It cant be switched off, because it's one piping for all the rooms; I would preferred to stay hot in the night instead of that noise (even if in tje room tjere was a wall fan)! we went to the reception with...

We stayed in the main building, room 6. Two good things: the restaurant and the surroundings. The room is so small and so old. The bathroom is disgusting! They have some cooling system that didn't work and as you known, it's HOT there. Because the place is surrounded by nature, there are all kinds of bugs but no mosquito nets... More

It is located directly in Death Valley which is cool and you can explore desert before or after midday heat. Anyway it is expensive considering what you get for your money. Room itself is quite nice and bed is comfortable but bathroom and especially shower is desperately calling for refurbishment!! Wifi was broken during our stay but fortunately they gave... More

We used Panamint springs as a one night stopover on our way to Vegas. This place was basic but ok and I would recommend the food at the cafe especially the chilli. Staff are very friendly and helpful the only thing is the toilets need doing up Saw a roadrunner and the views were amazing.

Not worth the $99 dollar. Small, dirty room, shower hardly working and very noisy airco which cannot be switched off. Only positive item is the bed which for us was still brand new. The restaurant in front of the rooms is ok, the food is reasonable for Death Valley. As this is the only under $100 dollar option in the... More

When I booked this motel I was told their rooms are simple, OK I like simple, no TV, etc. The problem is that the room was dirty and in a desperate need of renovations. I was tempted to sleep in my car. PS. The food in the restaurant was great

During our two week road trip, the Panamint Springs Resort was our stopover that we weren't entirely sure what to expect from. We arrived mid-afternoon and we checked in at the gas station, which is around 200m from the motel and restaurant. Check in was swift and we were given keys to our room, where we were asked to park... More

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
