Panamint Springs Resort is proud to be the only pet-friendly resort in Death Valley National Park. All pets must be declared BEFORE CHECK-IN, so that we can maintain pet-free rooms for those guests with allergies. Declared pets in our rooms or cabins will each incur a $5 nightly fee, while those in the campground will incur a $5 fee per reservation. Undeclared pets will incur a penalty fee of $150. We do not charge a pet fee for service animals, however they must be declared and are subject to the same rules and regulations.
All pets are to be kept on-leash while visiting Panamint Springs. Guests ARE NOT permitted to leave any animals in rooms or vehicles unattended; the extreme climate in Death Valley National Park can quickly lead to fatalities, even during the winter months. Guests ARE NOT permitted to bring pets into our restaurant, however you may be permitted to have pets on the restaurant patio at your server's discretion. Guests whose pets cause disturbance to other guests or staff (eg. off-leash, keeping neighbors up after Quiet Hours, etc.) may be asked to vacate the premises.

All charges must be paid on arrival unless special arrangements are made in advance. For group reservations, group leaders accept full financial responsibility for any damages or cancellation charges.

We are a remote location and do not have television or telephones in our motel rooms. Death Valley National Park does not have digital cell phone service, and there is no pay phone at Panamint Springs Resort.

Panamint Springs receives internet via satellite connection. This means that our internet connection is often interrupted by atmospheric phenomena (wind, rain, clouds, etc.) The bandwidth available in this location is also extremely limited, so high-bandwidth activities such as streaming, teleconference calling, and virtual schooling are rarely accessible.  Because of the limited nature of the internet available here, we do not recommend relying on this system. Refunds will not be issued if guests decide after check-in that satellite internet will not be sufficient for their needs.

Panamint Springs Resort is a historic property. As such, we do not yet have ADA rooms. However, if there are specific accessibility needs, contact us and we may be able to accommodate them.

Please note that special requests will be noted and honored when possible, but are never guaranteed.

Panamint Springs is located in the remote Panamint Valley section of Death Valley National Park and is completely off-grid. This means there is no cell service, Google Maps is spotty, and it's 50 miles each way to the nearest grocery store/pharmacy/auto shop/bank/etc. We welcome you to take a step into local history and explore this unique setting.

We do not have an official physical address at Panamint Springs Resort, because we do not receive U.S. Mail deliveries. Therefore, it is NOT advisable to find us using a GPS device unless you use our coordinates. To find us, there are a few things you can do:

  • Go to, type in Panamint Springs and select the maps button. (Or see map above)
  • Look at any map of the national park, find highway 190 and mark a point on highway 190 about 10 miles in the western side of the  park (if we are not already marked)
  • You can enter in our latitude and longitude coordinates: 36°20'21.6"N 117°28'07.3"W

  • Please verify all GPS directions on a map, as they have been known to take people the wrong way. Feel free to email us if you have specific inquiries.
