#4 of 4 hotels in Death Valley National Park
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!

This is a very old motel, with very basic rooms. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. That said, nothing in or around this has been updated for years…and it was built in 1939. There is no TV, no hairdryer, no coffee maker, etc in the room. For $200+ a night, you get a bed, pillows, towels, and bathroom. The room had a portable space heater, which we were thankful for since it was pretty cold the night we stayed and there was only one blanket for the bed. I rated it two stars because of the price - high because of the limited options in/near Death Valley National Park. The food in the on-site restaurant was good and the service was friendly. The restaurant had a very limited menu but had a great selection of beer by the can or bottle. Also, there is no wi-if except at the gas station next door about 150ft away, Which is where you also go to check in to the motel. Not sure what other hotel options exist a little further out, but would probably try that if we returned to this area.

What is up with people? I can't believe the negative reviews on here.... What a bunch a turds. Man, Panamint is AMAZING and AFFORDABLE!! The breakfast buffet is hot, decently prepared and CHEAP! WAY BETTER than over in DV & WAY LESS EXPENSIVE.... WHO GOES TO DV TO STAY INSIDE THEIR ROOM??!! $35 a night!!!!!! CLEAN SAFE FRIENDLY ....haters can go back to the city & pay $400 a night. As far as I'm concerned, good riddance. Bunch a complainers that wouldn't be satisfied, no matter what. Clean, friendly and $35.00 a night. Plus! You can watch the jets while drinking coffee just outside your room/tent/cabin Heavenly

Arrived at 8:00 p.m. just as the store was closing. Apparently they missed my phone message stating that I was going to be arriving late. Quick check-in with a pleasant clerk. We were the only one staying in the full hook-up section 1st night and two of us the 2nd. night. Paid the $85 per night fee for two nights with water, sewer, and electrical hook-ups. No Wi-Fi, TV or cell service from this location. Restaurant was closed Monday and Tuesday but store has limited items when open. Campground was very rustic, quiet, and carved out of the desert. Entire campground had only 5 - 10 camp spaces occupied so didn't see or hear many people. Closest location for visiting Father Crowley's Overlook / Rainbow Canyon (Starwars Canyon) where military jets can occasionally be seen flying through the canyon, we didn't see any in two days spending 6-hours each day.

We stayed in the miners cabin for a few nights. It was expensive and we were expecting something much nicer for what we spent ($325 per night). No one came to clean the room and we were not provided with blankets or towels even though we requested them at the general store, twice. When we checked out we asked about the towels/blankets/housekeeping and the same staff we had spoken to previously claimed that they did not remember us and we should have asked earlier (which we did, twice). They said as the said everyday previously, "we are understaffed and overworked."

Everything as expected. Tent cabins, RV spots or cabins available in the campground. Motel still closed at this time but if you call I believe they’re can make accommodations. Very Peaceful. Nice restaurant bar across the street and small market with lots available including shakes and ice cream. Don’t listen to the whining reviews about the bathrooms. They’re campground bathrooms and they look no worse than many others I’ve been. Water is warm and the pressure albeit light, is sufficient to get the job done. Popular spot for motorcycles. I suspect this place was busy on weekends like this past Presidents’ Day, before the plague. Now they’re struggling but with things starting to open again it is hopeful they’re business will pick up. Read a lot of complaints about gas prices. What do you expect out in the middle of Death Valley.. 4 bucks which is cheaper then nearby Stove Pipe Wells or Furnace Creek near the Nevada border. This campground was everything I expected including the knowledgeable Esteban in the store and Aaron (I think) the friendly funny owner, Great place just to stop for a cold beer and a sandwich or even better grab a spot for a few nights. The place to be for days exploring Death Valley or even the Easter Sierra Mountains. You will not run out of things to do and places to explore. We will be back.
