Every time we enter or depart DV we dine at the Springs: superb burgers, pizza and what can one say about their beer selection other than superb. The breakfast is their weakest link but still better than any at Wells, Inn, or Ranch. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

This was our second stay at Panamint, this time for 8 nights! We found the storage closet especially useful this time given that we stock piled a lot of food for our daily adventures in the backcountry. Wow does it ever cool down in the evening, this time we stayed in March 2012, we were happy to find the heaters...

This place looked cute on the outside, but once you opened the door forget it. The walls are so thin you can hear EVERYTHING. The bathroom has carpet in it which was disgusting. I would not even take a shower as it did not look clean. The wash clothes were so thin, they looked like rags, and there was no...

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay here. We do have carpeting in the bathrooms of about half of our rooms. We are replacing the carpeting with tile each time a room if remodeled. The carpets are shampooed regularly. The showers are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each day. Some of the showers are older (in...

The restaurant at Panamint Spring has a beer selection that rivals a top restaurant in San Francisco or New York. Food is limited to burgers and pizza. But there are probably 20 different burger choices. We didn't eat here this visit, but I recall the food being better than anything served at Stovepipe Wells. We've never stayed overnight. But it's...

The resort would not win many hotel rating stars but in compensation at night we could see every star in the galaxy. The room was clean and neat but the walls were paper thin. However the location next to Death Valley is the prime attraction and the evening meal and breakfast in the adjoining restaurant were excellent.

Pros: restaurant right next door; clean rooms; place to get away from it all (almost - no TV or cell reception, but we did have wireless access); AMAZING views of the stars. Cons: THIN walls We arrived around 7ish - check-in is at the mini-mart at the gas station next door, and it went smoothly. Room was about what we...

This place is litterally in the middle of nowhere, on the maain road crossing the Valley, but this is the place you want to be if you want to experience the best view around you (ok you have to walk a little bit) and feel alone ! The motel room have nothing extraordinary but they are neat, which is the...

This place is very quirky. There is basically nothing else for miles and miles it literally is in the middle of nowhere. If your used to life's little luxuries this isn't for you. But if your after something different and rustic and not exactly perfect with friendly no-nonsense locals and amazing surrounds you may just appreciate this place. The beer...

So we had read what everyone else had to say and so were prepared. Ok so its Death Valley. Its a biiiiiig place. Its isn't the razzamataz like up the road at Furnace Creek.

The rooms were very old, but basically clean, as was the shower, which was quite small. The shower faucet was about to fall off the wall, but at least we were able to shower. The bathroom itself was large. The air conditioning was run by the employees at the gas station, so it could not be adjusted (by us). At...

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
