We first reviewed The Old Ranch Inn in 2007 - having been back several times since then, this is our review of our stay 5th sept - 9th sept 2012.
We booked Room 8 again - this room has a great position for opening up your bedroom door and taking 3 steps into the wonderful pool. It also has a little private side patio area with table and chairs. Tastefully appointed and all the amenities you could wish for - you simply can't fault the accommodation, the pool and patios and the wonderful mountain views at the Old Ranch Inn (and all only a few minutes stroll from South Palm Canyon Drive). What makes this place absolutely stand out from the competition is the ambience created by the owners, Ed and Larry. They haven't simply bought an inn and left it to others to run - they personally look after guests from booking through to departure and are present every day - not in your face, but warmly attentive, for example, bringing cold bottles of water out to guests each afternoon at the pool (definitely welcomed in the 100 degree heat!), checking us in for flights etc . Ed and Larry offer so much more than simply accommodation for your stay - they are great hosts who clearly have real pride & passion in the service they offer their customers. Our 4 days were wonderful - we left once again feeling so relaxed - Palm Springs is a glorious place for a chill-out break (just what we wanted before hitting Vegas!) and the Old Ranch Inn is definitely the oasis in this desert.
