My best friend and I made the Panamint Springs Resort our new Thanksgiving tradition beginning in 2008, and with the exception of last year, came regularly. Well, after missing last year we SO looked forward to our stay after our 1 year absence. Upon arrival, we checked-in as usual and could not wait to have our favorite pasta dinner. Imagine my SHOCK when I opened the menu to see burgers, pizza and 1 steak offered (and it's NOT CHEAP EITHER!). The pizza at $33.70 (pizza, 1 coke, 1 coffee) made a $4.99 frozen Stater Brothers look GOOD in comparison. It took 1 hour to get a pizza with the restaurant and bar almost deserted, and another regular patron was shocked when she could not get a cup of decaf coffee.
Not one smile from the staff that evening and compared to years past the bar and restaurant were deserted. I wonder why? Hummmmmm To add insult to injury upon our departure I commented to a woman named Nancy that the pizza stank. Her response was smug, not apologetic: "Well, I like the pizza and I heard the previous menu was not so good". Well, unlike Nancy, I've eaten off of BOTH menus, so quite frankly I didn't take her opinion or comments with much validity. Panamint Springs is now officially practicing what is the beginning of the end of any business: Cut service and raise prices. Perhaps Panamint Springs and the Post Office should take value in this important lesson! It doesn't WORK! Well, the magic is gone and I won't be staying there and spending $650 PLUS per year with them. I guess the one-time drive-by tourist is more valuable than loyal guests. Good Luck, Panamint Springs... you're gonna need it!
