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... More

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... More

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. The inn is small and cosy with really friendly and helpful staff and a lovely pool and terrace/garden area with wonderful views of the surrounding... More

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... More

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.... More

We just got back from a week at the Old Ranch Inn in Palm Springs. Larry and Ed (the proprietors) were great, the Inn was great, the location was great! We would definitely stay here again! Larry and Ed were very helpful in recommending restaurants, activities, etc., all the good "info" you don't get with the "chain" hotels. All the... More
