#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!

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.

In desperate need for some outdoor time, but wanting to maintain social distance safety, my husband and I headed to Death Valley. A visit here had been on my bucket list for a while, and although it's only a few hour drive for us, the limited visitation season had eluded us until now. We arrived at The Panamint Resort, with reservations for a small tent rental just after the New Year, the weather was perfect. Charlie checked us in, was super friendly, adjusted my reservation which had included breakfast ( a small upcharge when available) as I would not be around from 8-10 am. ( I'd be photographing sunrise somewhere). Charlie explained that most of the staff would be laid off as of today, restaurant was closed, campground would be dry (no hookups) but the small store and gas station would remain open. He was friendly and optimistic, hoping to be re-employed soon. The tent was adequate. Two cots, on a raised, insulated floor. Plenty of room for personal items. A Picnic table and fire pit are provided in the small site. There are maybe 8 tents, +/- , some bigger, for four cots. An area for RV's and a campsite for bring your own tent camping. The fire rings do not have grates so bring your own if you need to cook over the firepit. The bathrooms were clean, but in quite disrepair. The floor was consistently wet as the toilets leaked from the base and wall. The Showers, which I did not use, were adequate, and seemed to be kept clean. Bring shower shoes if you intend on using them. Toilet seat covers are not provided. This resort is on the western side of the park. Many of the attractions are east, over the mountain range. Plan on long days, lots of driving and hiking and amazing geology, views, history and more. Be sure to spend some time at Father Crowley's overlook, ( a few miles west of Panamint resort) to watch for fighter jets. Overall, my suggestions is to GO! There is so much to do in Death Valley but with a planned itinerary, you should be able to do most in a 3 or 4 day weekend. Panamint Resort is a great choice for an easy place to stay!
