If all I want is a room, I usually stay at Stovepipe Wells. It's centrally located and has some teriffic views, and is in close proximity to the Sand Dunes, which is a great place to hike at night.
I've stayed at Panamint Springs, and had a perfectly fine time. The restaurant is good and the porch has a teriffic view. It's true the rooms are small, but I don't travel to Death Valley to spend time in a motel room. All I want is a bed and a shower. The main drawback for your trip is that it is the farthest motel from Las Vegas, and not as centrally located for visiting the main sites.
