Rustic. Yes, very. But at least it is a place stay overnight. Very, very basic room, like a 1930's place. So, just be happy that it seems safe, and enjoy the dark skies! The self-serve breakfast was quite OK. Cost was steep (USD$120, September 2018), but again we were so happy to find a room. But it's no Motel 6!

Disgusting... Woke up covered in ants

This place is disgusting avoid at all costs. I mean firstly I booked somewhere which I thought had a door and they directed me to a tent (with a ripped door). It didn’t even have a number so someone actually came into my tent in the night. The toilets were disgusting like they had never been cleaned before. There was no bed, only a old scabby camp bed. There was no bedding you had to purchase that as an extra. I woke up covered head to toe in ants and bites. I complained and they didn’t do anything. They said they would look into it. It was expensive too- over $30. This place is not fit to stay in.... Please for your safety please do not stay here!

Turned away asking for a coffee

We had gotten up early to travel through Death Valley and have breakfast in Panamint Springs as we'd heard we could stop for coffee and breakfast here. We'd been on the road for around 2 hours, in good spirits as this was some of the most amazing countryside we had ever seen. When we asked for a coffee, before we were allowed to sit down, we were turned away by a very rude man who offered no explanation other than to say he only offered coffee to those staying here. Wow. Really?!

Yes its basic but you're in the middle of Death Valley for goodness sake! Stayed 2 years ago at Furnace Creek which was double the price & whilst it was good, can't say it was worth it & was still very basic with not great food. We booked Panamint Springs with a little trepidation after reading the reviews but of the opinion that it was a bed for the night. The room was a little tired but clean & the wifi was iffy due to the remoteness. It was lovely to sit on the chairs outside the room having a beer & looking at the stars. The food at the bar was very nice with plenty of choice & we were lucky to get a table sat on the veranda looking out over the valley, just bliss! Breakfast was excellent & it was a lovely surprise to discover on arrival that it was included in our room booking. All the staff were very friendly & all I can say is that we are glad Stovepipe Wells was booked up otherwise we might have stopped there & missed out on this gem. Wished we could have stayed longer & if every we venture back to Death Valley, this will be our stop off for sure. Thanks for a lovely stay.

I was expecting a very basic room and probably I got a bit less than that. Besides some bath towels and two bottles of water, there was literally nothing else. The beds were reasonably clean and comfortable but the room is badly in need of some repair. There was a fist-sized hole in the wall, the shower area had cracked flooring and weak water pressure. The window unit aircon was noisy but worked well considering the temperatures in this area. There is wifi but it was virtually useless until most guests have gone to sleep. There is a restaurant which served quite good food, although I would caution against their coffee which was lukewarm and tasteless. Do expect to wait since it does fill up during dinner but service was polite. On the plus side, if you enjoy the night sky, this location is fantastic if you are willing to wander a bit out of the compound away from the light
