The rooms were very old, but basically clean, as was the shower, which was quite small. The shower faucet was about to fall off the wall, but at least we were able to shower. The bathroom itself was large. The air conditioning was run by the employees at the gas station, so it could not be adjusted (by us). At 10 p.m. the air went off and thank God there was a ceiling fan - and we were there in "winter." My hair dryer worked, even though I could only find one outlet by the bed.
After being at a resort that included 3 meals a day, I was quite disappointed with Panamint Springs Resort. The restaurant was right next to the rooms and I thought very expensive. I only wanted soup, and they took 15 minutes to tell us they were out of soup. We wound up not eating, since my husband wasn't feeling well anyhow. I doubt I'll go back.
- 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
