My wife and I had picked this hotel for a one night stay on the 7th June, as it was the right distance on our drive from Pahrump to Lee Vining to split the journey up nicely. We made the booking in advance, and after a lot of research. I would like to say that I realise the facilities are...

We have absolutely no record of this guest ever emailing our property with their concerns. We have searched back through the archives to make sure we didn't miss it and could not find anything. We always respond to any correspondence that comes to us and make sure to address any concerns. As far as the cleanliness of the rooms go,...

One wants to love this place. It dates to the 1930s, everything operates on generator power, and there's no cellphone service or TV or much of any other connection to the rest of the world. On the restaurant patio is a series of planter boxes with dozens of varieties of weird and wonderful miniature cacti, and in front of the...

NIce people and shade! You can camp here also! There is a decent restaurant, even though I always received mixed reviews from others about the food. Remember, it is Death Valley! So the sightseeing involves driving and walking, best time of year to go is October through early April unless you wish to experience the true "HEAT" of DV!

We spent one night there in June on our way to death valley. The place is clean with a comfortable room although you could see it was old and freshly painted. There is nothing around at the convenience store has really the bare minimum. We ate at the restaurant and the food was good. It is a great location to...

We stopped by this hotel as on our way from Yosemite to Vegas. Room check-in at the Gas station. Convenient store is at the Gas station where open until 9.30pm. The room is cleaner and more comfortable than I expected. What surprise me the most is the towel! They are very clean and fluffy. Great sky view at night. Only...

Keep your expectations in check and you'll enjoy this quaint motel. Remember, you're in the middle of a desert. This establishment rents inexpensive, small rooms that are intended to keep you sheltered for a quick overnight stop. I wouldn't plan on staying at this establishment any longer than that. Our plan whenever we stay here is to arrive late and...

A couple of points: CONS 1. Death Valley is hot. REALLY hot. And this is an old, old motel with no AC, just "swamp cooling," whatever the heck that is. Doesn't keep the room cold. Stovepipe rooms do have AC. 2. Technically has internet. Doesn't work. 3. Rooms haven't been remodeled since 1930 when the building was built. 4. Gas...

If you want quiet serenity and peace, then come to Panamint Springs resort. It doesn't have a pool, recreation room, and a lot of things to do, but we didn't miss it. We camp and we have our own things to do. The restaurant is good and nice people. The store is efficient and clean. The staff are very friendly...

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
