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.
The restaurant is the pits. Expensive, bad food, sometimes poor service. (Breakfast is fine. It's hard to wreck eggs and pancakes). The store is reasonably stocked, I'd rather buy my Sierra Nevada there and take it elsewhere than sit in a bar and drink.

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.
I've never stayed at Furnace Creek Ranch. It always looked like a zoo to me.
