My wife and I stayed here and what a great choice we made, its our first trip to Palm Springs and we were looking for somewhere that would offer a more personable experience than a large resort. The owners Tim and Gwen are so motivated to give great service and they deliver this and more, have never stayed at a... More

Nice location. Friendly innkeepers. Ready snacks at all times, plus that bottled gold -----"water". Room was actually more than what we expected much to our happiness. Pool is right out side the door and would have took a swim but forgot suits :(. How sad is that.

So far from the typical resort hotel. Very relaxing right when you come inside. The new management is great. Very quiet and loved the pool. Met some nice people while swimming. We stayed in room #8 that has the biggest King bed I have ever been in. Will book next year before going home.

This was our third trip to Palm Springs and our first time at the Old Ranch Inn. Tim was warm and welcoming as we checked in and offered us a free upgrade to a larger room since there was a cancellation. The grounds are clean and quiet, the surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and an easy walk to all of the... More

my friend had stayed here before and raved about it. It is a very quaint family style run hotel. With only 8 rooms it is small, convenient to downtown - walking distance. Only small annoyance was the pillows were flat and hard. I prefer a soft pillow or a variety to switch out. Small thing really.

We liked our stay at The Old Ranch Inn so much we extended our stay by one night—luckily they were able to accommodate us on a very busy week due to a cancellation. The bonus to that is that we got to sample two rooms—the king room #6 for 3 nights, then queen room #5 (photo) for the last (Sunday)... More

The Old Ranch in is located just a few blocks from the main street in Palm Springs. The room was immaculate and very quiet. Gracious inn keepers were so accomodating to this solo traveler. My room had a welll supplied kitchen and frig. Loved the pool, the gardens and I will stay there again. Fresh sweet grapefruit off their tree... More

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
