Don’t stop here for gas. The pump read $4.12 per gallon. I had to pay inside and didn’t pay much attention to the charge. When I got home and started reviewing our expenses, I notice I was charged $4.999 per gallon. I really wish I had noticed that while we were at the resort.

Yes, it's basic, but the rooms were clean, the sheets were crisp, the towels were fluffy and there was plenty of hot water. A portable heater warmed the room quickly. The guys at the gas station solved a reservation mix-up by giving us an additional room at no charge. The gas station/convenience store also had some good snacks. Get to the restaurant early at dinnertime as it seemed the popular items sold out, and try the waffles at breakfast. The eggs were inedible, as others have mentioned--guys, hard-boiled eggs, you can do this! The service was friendly, and the view from the restaurant was wonderful. We didn't hear any noise from our neighbors, and in fact it was perfectly quiet at night and we all slept well.

Beware of fictitious "cleaning" overcharges
Please beware of fictitious overcharges from this property. I stayed on 12/30 for one night and left the room in great shape like I always do when I travel. Upon reviewing the charges on my credit card, I discovered an additional $150 charge. Panamint Springs Resort claims that they had to spend eight hours cleaning the unit to remove a smoke smell and charged a $150 cleaning fee. I'm a non-smoker and there was no smoke smell in the unit when I arrived or left. In fact the only smell I noticed upon check in was a strong smell of human feces in the unit. Clearly there is no cleaning for "smells."

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
