Firstly, if you are expecting luxurious accommodation look elsewhere. What is offered at the Panamint Springs is a truly unique proposition. Imagine coming out of your room in the evening to see an explosion of star light across every part of the sky!
We took two rooms in the old cabins next to the restaurant and gas station area. The rooms are in a state of repair, with modernization actually ongoing each day. One of the cabins had minor issues, but these were swiftly resolved by the staff. The cabins were very quiet, which is ideal for me as I wake very easily.
If you want to explore Death Valley, but don't want to drive for hours between your accommodation and the park, then Panamint Springs is for you!

Very basic small free standing tents with two cots. Too close to your snoring neighbors. Smelled strongly of the rubber mat flooring. Not particularly clean and overpriced at $35 a night. On the pro side - have campfire rings and picnic tables and just across from the overpriced bar

Miner’s Cabin is great!
Friendly staff, great cabin and the shower was awesome. The stargazing view from our porch was phenomenal. Pizza was huge and nice, breakfast could have been better - but what do you want in the middle of nowhere?

Bring ear plugs
With so little competition accommodations in or near National Parks seem often to be sub-standard Sadly Panamint Springs is one of the many. If this resort was anywhere else it would only rate 2stars
When you arrive you need to go to the gas station to check in. Staff were friendly but failed to give us our vouchers for breakfast. Fortunately the hostess at breakfast believed us without having to go get our receipt.
The room we had was clean and had clearly recently been painted. Also had new carpet Shower worked well. No hair dryer as they have limited electricity. Bed was not good and oddly they had a rough material on duvet cover with no sheet underneath it. Pillow large and extremely hard. Room was not cleaned or made up after first night. Main problem was paper thin walls and door. You could hear every word if the people in adjoining room even spoke at a normal level. Thank heavens no snoring the nights we stayed. The view point had the saddest collection of broken downs chairs to sit on. Such a shame as the view was spectacular and with very little effort it could be a really nice area. Overall there is a lot of junk near the “resort”
Food at dinner was as expected for this sort of place pizza, hamburgers some salads We had the wedge salad which was pretty good and a just OK pizza. Good selection of beer. Breakfast consisted of a toaster with muffins and a selection of bread, a single waffle maker, cereal , some small Danish pastries, yogurt, and cold hard boiled eggs (way over done and inedible).
Resort was supposed to have WIfi but the two nights we were there it never worked. I don’t mind being disconnected from the world in Death Valley but need to know in advance. The staff made all sorts of lame excuses. We have used up all the data was the most common one. Just be honest and maybe give a voucher for a free beer or ice-cream for the inconvenience. Be aware there is also no cell phone service unless you have ATT when you might pick up a signal a few miles away.
Overall the location is what keeps this place in business. If you have your own RV you will be happier.

Shed with a Bed
This is what happens when there is no competition. The motel is a collection of sheds with wafer thin walls and thats it. It contains a bed. The attached bar is nothing special and the breakfast is basic. A make your own waffle machine is the only highlight as long as you are prepared to wait in line. And then you come to the price: Unarmed Robbery. It is twice the price of anywhere else we stayed in the area and the worst by a long way.
