The Old Ranch Inn in Palm Springs is a great place to stay. This 8-room Inn is located in a clean, scenic area of Palm Springs. The entire property is beautifully maintained and the rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, clean and quiet. Each room has its own particular charm with lots of colourful flair and attention to detail. We stayed...

My huband and I stayed at the Inn for 3 days while we were in Palm Springs. We checked it out on trip advisor and read the reviews and made our decision based on them. The Old Ranch Inn exceeded our expectations. It is truly a beautiful, peaceful and romantic oasis, yet a short pleasant walk to many fabulous restaurants...

We booked a 3 day stay at the Old Ranch Inn as part of a four week trip around California and Arizona. Regrettably we arrived in a state of disarray - with one of us in need of urgent hospital treatment. However, our hosts at the Inn, Ed and Larry, could not have been more welcoming, thoughtful, generous and helpful...

We loved the Old Ranch Inn. The property and the room were both lovely. I loved the decor of the room and the pool and grounds are beautiful. But what made our experience exceptional was the service provided by Larry and Ed. All of their recommendations were perfect and they went out of their way to be helpful. It really...

We could have stayed anywhere for the same price but the service and experience could not have been matched. I was traveling on business and it was my husband's vacation. We had to work with a budget. We feel like we received far more than we paid for. Larry and Ed's hospitality began when we checked in and extended after...

Ed & Larry are the most hospitable hosts. The setting reminds me of an Agatha Christie novel where you know everyone staying at this small, but perfect holiday spot. The rooms are decorated beautifully - I felt totally at home. Everything is tastefully done and nothing is too much. Cannot praise this little hidden gem enough. The location is fabulous......

I emailed to book for 3 nights. I received an email back saying that there was one room available. The place sounded perfect. There was only one room left so I wanted to book immediately. I called & spoke to the reservation desk. I explained that I now only required 2 nights and I was told that he could not...

My partner and I spent a wonderful weekend at The Old Ranch Inn. When we booked we got the last available room. While it was small and right across from the office, it was nevertheless, comfortable, nicely appointed and quiet. The guests we met were an interesting mix of Californians and Europeans. The atmosphere was friendly, yet private. The pool...
