By fluke, we ended up at the Old Ranch Inn and, boy, are we ever glad that we happened upon this place. The fact that they boast so many repeat guests, year after year, is a testament not only to this cozy, charming, cool lil' find, but also to the owners, Larry and Ed, who remodeled the 8-unit property 10...

We've stayed at the Old Ranch Inn for a few years now. Ed & Larry (the owners) have always kept the rooms, pool, and grounds - - absolutely perfect for a couple of snow-birds coming down from Minnesota. This trip Larry recommend we try a new restaurant, and he gave us a coupon for golf at Indian Canyons. Many, many... More

Quiet, cozy, well-appointed inn. Comfy bed. Congenial, gracious hosts. Warm pool. Good coffee. Off-street parking. Conveniently located, within walking distance of Palm Canyon Drive restaurants and shops. We'll be back!

This us our fourth visit to the Inn in four years and we are as pleased as ever! Friendly management and staff, impeccable cleanliness, and the best location imaginable make this our choice over and over again. You are three blocks from everything downtown, close enough to walk, far enough to have peace and quiet. All our needs are always... More

This small inn is ultra friendly, cozy, and loaded with charm. My room was large and superbly appointed, with a wonderfully comfortable bed, cushy side chairs, a table, excellent lighting, and a roomy kitchen with coffee provided. The French doors and the windows let in plenty of natural light. The bathroom was spacious, and I always appreciate a walk-in shower,... More

Stayed last week of November for three days on our first visit to Palm Springs area. Then went to Palm Desert. Does it tell you something that we came back two days later? We stayed in two different rooms on the pool. Both were lovely, and it was like being in a home rather than a hotel. Used the kitchenette... More

Decided to go local and spent Thanksgiving in Palm Springs at Old Ranch Inn. The owners made it so very nice to be there - friendly and helpful. There is alot of care on their part for both guests and the property and it is evident. Even all the guests were wonderfully friendly. The view from the pool and the... More

We had a wonderful time staying at the Old Ranch Inn. From the friendly greeting to the comfortable room, it was perfect. The location is great -- just an easy walk to a number of excellent restaurants and bars with nightly entertainment. We'll be back soon.

So many things outstanding about the Old Ranch Inn but the piece that stands out most in my mind the that it is like a stay in someone's home. Ed and Larry's attention to detail and welcoming conversive demeanors make you feel like you are wandering their lovely home. Coffee, tea, fruit, and conversation in the morning are a wonderful...
