Walked into the room and wanted to walk straight back out and go stay somewhere better.
There was a bed, no headboard. It smelt dirty, like the sheets weren't fresh or the bedding was really old and grimy. We both felt dirty from the bed so took a shower in the very old and basic shower (at least the water pressure was ok). There were notices in the bathroom not to stain the white towels or we'd be charged. Some coloured towels were provided to dry if you'd been using suncream (weird, just get better detergent or bleach them).
The price was extortionate for the room. Outside the park for similar money stay at Tecopa Hot Springs. For less money stay in Beatty (and better hotel). For more money stay in the park - I wish we'd spent the extra - not much extra to spend another night in the park at the Furnace Creek. Don't bother with Stovepipe Wells, that cockroach infested place with the most unpleasant manager ever is even more of a rip off.
The only plus about staying here was the restaurant beer selection and the views of the stars.
- 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
