Panamint Springs is focused on providing a positive guest experience to all visitors who come through our privately owned and operated desert oasis. Whether stopping through for gas, lunch/dinner at our restaurant and bar, or looking for a cozy place to sleep, the guest experience is our main priority.

We are looking for someone with a willingness to work and go above and beyond to fill the position of a housekeeper for our motel lodging. Job duties include, cleaning guest rooms and maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and organization. Housekeepers must also maintain laundry and keep track of housekeeping inventory. In addition to cleaning used motel rooms, housekeepers are expected and required to check and dust vacant rooms daily and treat stay-over rooms as check outs. Candidates must be able to provide useful visitor information for guests passing through the area as well.

All housekeeping attendants may be assigned to staff the breakfast buffet in the restaurant before they begin their housekeeping duties for the day. Currently the restaurant is not open for breakfast however this will likely change in the fall. It is desired that this shift rotated between all housekeeping staff members. Once breakfast service is concluded, the assigned housekeeper would then finish out their day with standard housekeeping tasks.

  • Washing and drying laundry for all motel rooms and campground items, as well as folding laundry to decrease the likelihood of wrinkling
  • Communicating with the front desk about issues with rooms and when rooms are ready for guests
  • Fulfill additional tasks as needed and defined by the lead housekeeper, lodging manager or by any other member of the management team


We provide on-site training for standard motel cleaning, although previous experience in housekeeping is helpful. To be successful in this role, candidates must:

  • Possess a strong attention to detail
  • Value cleanliness
  • Have a resiliency to dirtiness, (having a strong stomach)
  • Possess strong communication skills and time management skills.
  • To be considered for this position applicants must be able to read and write and have a high school diploma or GED certificate.
