The Old Ranch Inn by far is the most relaxing, peaceful, immaculate, friendliest, and comfortable place we have ever stayed at. The rooms are tastefully decorated with "comfy" beds, pool is located directly out your door with small shaded tables and chairs to have your morning coffee with assorted fresh fruits. And the view of the mountains was breathtaking. The... More

We usually stay at the Coyote Inn next door but it was booked. We really like the area so figured why not just stay next door. It was AMAZING. Room was nice, comfortable bed, decent sized bathroom with tile walk in shower, small kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and toaster. Also included in the kitchen were paper cups, plates, bowls along... More

Me and my wife stayed here for two nights to break up a long distance motorcycle tour. It was the best hotel we stayed at on our trip. Both the hosts are just fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. They gave great eating advice and provided quality coffee and fresh fruit around the swimming pool that was literally outside our... More

Being return guests over many years, it is always difficult to find something to say that we haven't already said about this property. However, the fact that we continue to visit year after year is testimony enough that the owners Ed and Larry continue to get things right! Old Ranch Inn has eight rooms and is peaceful, secluded and immaculately... More

This was our first time to Palm Spings so wasn't sure what to expect but we had the best time ever and it all started with the "Old Ranch Inn". As soon as we got there we were welcomed and shown around. Rooms are a good size very clean and nicely decorated. Pool area also was spotless lots of chairs/tables/loungers... More

We stayed for 2 nights in room 6 which is very private, having an entrance down a small passage, unlike several of the rooms which have glass doors opening directly onto the pool area. This might be an issue for some people who aren't good at keeping the blinds closed for privacy! The room was immaculate and attractively furnished and... More

Ever since my first stay at the Old Ranch Inn 2 years ago, I've been trying desperately to return and was finally able to do so this past April. Once again, Ed and Larry, the owners of this charming inn, did not disappoint! The owners are genuinely interested in their guests' well being and are always there to make sure... More

I stayed for 4 nights at the Old Ranch Inn with my mother and we had a LOVELY time! Ed was a really nice host; he came to pick us up at the Palm Springs airport, explained to us how the ranch operated, we had access to a collection of books, movies, magazines, 24 hour access to the pool etc...

Although we could not stay at this property I wanted to write a quick review on Larry and the staff at Old Ranch Inn. I had originally planned to visit with my wife in May and had inquired online about availability etc al. They went above and beyond by holding my room for a week while I was traveling. Once... More
