People, there is no AC in most of the rooms! I mean at all. In the afternoon and early evening its really hot inside. We had just a fan on the ceiling. There is no hairdryer either. The room had holes in the wall and overall looked very sad. It needs renovation. Their restaurant is rediculously expensive. We paid 17 $ for what they call "Greek salad" which was very small and just a combination of greens cucumbers and feta. The 17$ burger wasn't good also. The owners of the hotel just take advantage of the tourists and the fact that there are very few hotels in the park. Also if you choose the hotel because it is close to sailing stones, check the condition of the road before you go. For the last month most of the roads that go to that place are closed because of the heavy rain. High clearance four-wheel drive vehicle may be required.
- 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
