To start with I was very happy with the last minute reservation I was able to make the morning of our check-in. Phone and internet is very spotty so I wasn't 100% sure my spot would be available but the guy at the counter had us all set up. The location is a bit of a drive from Furnace Creek, but the elevation helps with the heat. Also, the view from the campground is Amazing!!! Be prepared to be flexible with your site, when we drove into the camp, there was someone in our "reserved" spot....no big deal, we just checked back with the guy and he had us move to the spot next to it....same with our return on the 2nd day. We stopped in at the resturant on night 2 and had no complaints, food, drinks and service were all fine. We will 100% stay here again when/if we make another trip to Death Valley.

Great and no so great

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The accommodation is not 3 star and the breakfast was ridiculous but the room and bedding was clean, evening meal was ok, bar was good and the setting was absolutely amazing. Panamint Springs has everything you need for a stop over in the middle of a national park/desert. We were traveling between Yosemite and Vegas so I wanted to stay on the west side of the valley but in the national park itself. Hence we ended up here. They have a bar, restaurant, store, gas station, basic accommodation and one amazing setting. I loved the place.

I was embarassed for my country that this place was in a national park

We visited Death Valley starting from the NV side. The Furnace Creek area was the fanciest, and Stovepipe Wells was nice also. We had an early dinner in Stovepipe Wells before going on to Panamint Springs where we had reserved a little one-room cabin for the night. The cabin was just fine, exactly what I expected, but the grounds and the restaurant were horrible. It looked old, dirty, rusty, littered with trash, and almost deserted when we drove up. When we checked in the "bragging point" was how many different types of beer they offered, and that you could leave the bar with your beer. After we got settled in our cabin, we tried to take a walk out into the sand dunes, but I cannot tell you how many rusty cans and broken bottles littered the grounds. They were everywhere - as far as I could see. Definitely not a safe place to be with children. Then breakfast was a dirty, disgusting joke. The hard-boiled eggs were inedible - rubbery and tasting of vinegar. There were no tongs with which to pick up a pastry - just stick your hands in there and grab one. We had some coffee, thinking at least that was hot enough to be somewhat sanitary. There were other guests there who were visiting from other countries and I cringed to imagine their thoughts... How is this possible in a national park???

The WiFi didn’t work and the phone carriers do not reach this location, so one is totally cut off from the rest of the world. The breakfast was decent but not spectacular. The rooms were basic. The people are very kind and try to make your stay comfortable. We were satisfied.

One point because of the location and restaurant

This place is just absurd joke. The location of this "resort" is very good but the 2 bedroom cabin we stayed was just awful. Dirty fitted carpet, horrible, old and dirty furniture, broken tiles in the bathroom, broken doors, windows replaced with plywood... I really understand that in this kind of place you cannot expect to get first class service or accommodation. But still this place is the worst I've ever been. And maybe I don't even have to say that I didn't really sleep at all. The room rate was about 250 dollars/night which was at least 200 dollars too much. I will never go to this place again. NEVER. I think they don't even expect visitors to come back because if they did, they would do something to this place. No matter where you watch, something is broken, "fixed" and dirty. But maybe they don't even have care to because there are so few options in the area that this place is full anyway. My opinion is that they just don't care anything else than to get as much of money from the customers as possible. Anyway, the restaurant was surprisingly good - both pizzas and burgers. So if you are driving by and you are hungry, I could somehow recommend the restaurant. But try to find your accommodation somewhere else. The included breakfast was typical "motel breakfast" so you get bad coffee, toast, yoghurt and pancakes. But no juice, just water. The only stars you can see in this place are the ones that shine at night in the sky. And yes, this place is unique and one of a kind but in a bad way.
