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...

The Old Ranch Inn is one of many options in an area of Palm Springs which has the great advantage of being within easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops of the town centre.

First of all...Always listen to Trip Advisor! Almost a year ago, I read on the site that this was "America's hidden gem". The devotion of the owners was evident from my first call, to the day before we left, (against our better judgement...we'd have stayed forever!) when Larry printed our boarding passes. We flew in after fourteen hours of travel...

The Old Ranch Inn is an example of why I use Tripadvisor. We had a wonderful stay in a beautiful, well appointed and spotless room located in a charming inn with terrific hosts. The room was easily the best value that we've ever had for the money. It was bright, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was large and clean....
