The people, the decor, everything here is just right for a relaxing stay. We didn't want pretentious. We wanted quiet and relaxing. The Old Ranch Inn was exactly that. The room was very good size and we really appreciated the kitchen being off of the room, not in the room. We could bring our leftovers back and reheat them. We...

The Old Ranch Inn is a special place that my husband and I found some of the best rest we had ever gotten while traveling. Everything from the comfortable rooms to the beautiful mountain scenery just exudes relaxation and tranquility. The rustic western decor blends beautifully with the desert and makes travelers feel right at home. This boutique hotel offers...

I last stayed here in 2012 and my subsequent visits to Palm Springs were to other hotels as a result of having youngsters with me. All I can say is that The Old Ranch Inn is just as good as before. Wonderfully relaxing and in a quiet residential district, yet just 5 minutes walk to the action in Palm Canyon...

This is a very welcoming and attractive guest house in Palm Springs. The room was very comfortable with a spacious bed, TV and WiFi, a small kitchen with a microwave and fridge, and a big bathroom with tiled, "wet-room"-style shower. The office had DVDs that guests can borrow. Outside there is a small pool with loungers. My only criticism is...

Great little hotel. So many restaurants near by, you can walk to everything. It just feels right. We were a party of 3 and managers couldn't have been more accommodating. The room was large and nicely furnished. Breakfast by the pool was wonderful. Love this place.

We stayed for three nights and used the Old Ranch Inn as a great location from which to both tour the area during the day and then walk into the downtown strip of Palm Springs for a choice of restaurants & shopping. Room was spacious & included tea/coffee making facilities plus a fridge. Shower room was also spacious but lacked...

I have been to Palm Springs more times than I can remember and have stayed in dozens of hotels. This is by far the best place I've ever stayed. We were running late and would arrive after the office closed so we called ahead and the owner, Tim, said he'd wait for us. When we arrived, he made us feel...

It was our first visit to Palm Springs, so glad we chose to stay at the Old Ranch Inn. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome, Tim greeted us by name and took time out to fill us in on things to do, places to eat and then showed us to our room. The breakfast was great, plenty of...
