our ten day hiking adventure in Death Valley NP included stays at Shoshone, Panamint, Furnace Creek & Stovepipe so we could be closer to the trails. Trails near Panamint included the Panamint Dunes and wildrose peak which were both amazing hikes. You have to consider what you are paying at Panamint compared to the other park lodgings. Its a quaint inexpensive place to stay within the park. Fortunately the bed was comfortable. My feeling though is that if they charge a few dollars more they could do some capital improvements. The carpeting has to go. The rooms are in need of reflooring which would add to a feeling of cleanliness. Our room #9 actually had a peep hole inthe shower that permitted you to see the laundry facility and a white pick up truck parked out back. How could that be. Is the prefab shower unit the only wall? is there no wall outside? Is anyone peeking in?

- 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
