We stayed at the Panamint Springs resort and I'm here to tell you that your experience will really depend on the room you get. The first night we were in room #3, which has a queen bed. We had a terrible experience as this had an ajoining door and not only was that not soundproofed, but the top edge of the wall adjoining the ceiling had a huge gap in it where the light from the ajoining room came in. You could hear everything in the next room and I mean everything.
However, the next night we were in room #14, a room with three beds. The room was spacious and was much better soundproofed. The bathroom was large and actually had a bath. A very nice room that I would recommend. Of course, this room was about $40 more then room #3, but well worth it.
Oh, and be sure to fill up your car before you get here. They are well known as having the highest gasoline price in the continental United States. In March 2012, it was $5.48 for regular, about $1.10 higher per gallon then in Lone Pine, 40 miles away.
- 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
