My two grown children, their spouses, and I spent one night in Panamint Spring's little red cottage and we positively loved it. Of course this place isn't a resort in the normal sense of the word; one can look at its website and see that. But it's exactly what we wanted: a comfortable, inexpensive place to relax and sleep after...

This is a convenient site on the north-east side of Death Valley National Park. It has a gas station ($4.48 a gallon), convenience store, camping site, motor home site, tents with cots ($50 total for a Sunday night) cabanas and rooms. We stayed on room 7 (of 12). The rate was $96 total for a Sunday night stay. The room...

We stayed in the Miners cabin which is a new cute little cabin all on it's own, kind of...it looks much more secluded in the photos than what it actually is. It does have it's own view off the porch that is not interrupted by any other campers which was nice. The cabin itself was new and nicely done and...

Spent one night at the resort after a long drive. As we approached the resort it looked very rustic and dodgy and the checkin was at the gas station general store. We booked a cabin and we were blown away, it was facing the wonderful mountains, the room was room and cosy, but the bed was very clean and great...

I was happy with this stay. Our cabin was very small (very very small). But clean and comfortable. A nice little verandah area out the front. The bed was very comfortable. And it is in the middle of nowhere. It is further to drive to the centre of Death Valley, but if you want to be on the edge, then...

I was simply amazed at this place and how it could be rented to anyone. It was the worst place I've ever stayed. The concrete floor was covered with a type of green felt (not rug) and was black in areas. Had two holes through the felt so saw the concrete. walls, joints cabinets etc. were cracked. air conditioning smelled...

Didn't spend the night. Was staying at Stovepipe Wells but went to Panamint to investigate the dunes there. Very nice People at the restaurant. Had the great buffet breakfast and coffee and they gave me information on the dunes and how to get there. Advised best not to go as the road is not maintained. Nice stop for anyone looking...

Not really a "resort", it offers a variety of very basic overnight facilities. We stayed in their tents, with cots and bedding supplied. The bathrooms were basic and not the cleanest. If you don't expect much, it was a very pleasant stay. It was nice to be able to see another part of the park. At 2,000 feet, temperatures were...

If you want a motel room that's half way decent, don't stop here. Most of the rooms are small and dumpy. The parking area is dirt and the noise from refrigeration unit on the restaurant can keep you awake all night. Service is non existent. The help, in my opinion thinks you owe them a living. If they had any...

Location is great for entering the Death Valley national park This is a very rough and basic worn down in need of repairs rooms and rv park The staff is rude and could care less about providing any type of decent customer service.

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
