What a lovely place to holiday.Ed and Larry are so warm and friendly.This place is a great location ,just a short walk to the strip.Rooms are very clean and comfortable.Fresh fruit and coffee by the pool in the morning.There are only 8 rooms here so it is sort of intimate.You get to know the other guests who come from all over the world .Quite amazing that they find this Inn . I travelled alone but never felt unsafe .I would definetly stay here again !!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room here .

Very quiet and comfortable, walking distance from downtown, huge bed, large room, nice pool area w/plants, birds, fountains, floats; wonderful owners, recommendations on restaurants, bars, etc., exactly what we were hoping for : )

We stayed here on our first stop of our honeymoon for two nights and didn't want to leave. The rooms were really nice, we had one just off the pool and it was amazing, great value for money! The owners are so friendly and gave good recommendations for food. Location is great just a short walk of the main strip. The maid even gave us some ice cold water when we sunbathed by the pool,nice touch. Would definitely return.

We stayed in room 8, a large beautiful room with a kitchen attached. The place is a positive haven built around a (very warm) pool. Humming birds fly around and the planting is lovely. We also had our own private patio. Ed and Larry make perfect hosts and will give you print-outs of their recommended restaurants and answer any questions you may have. There is also a large dvd library to use and lots of books to read. Our bathroom had a hand-painted sink, but all the decor is full of tasteful and quirky touches. We had a soothing late night swim. If you go to Palm Springs we can highly recommend this oasis of calm and just plain niceness. Exra touches are fresh fruit and coffee served by the pool in the morning and cold bottles of water given out in the afternoon. The ranch is within a short walk to restaurants and bars so you don't have to worry about drinking and driving.

Room Tip: Go for room 8

Excellent place to stay in Palm Springs. We had a very warm welcome from Ed and enjoyed our 4 night stay in Room 1. Very spacious and well equipped, although we didn't use the kitchen facilities much as the main restaurants were just a 5 minute walk away! This is a very special place where personal service and attention makes all the difference. Definitely recommended. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We booked at short notice based on the reviews and were not disappointed. Larry and Ed made us very welcome. Nice and quiet and in a great neighbourhood.
We had room 6, a king size in the corner and it was a great choice. well furnished and a large bathroom. Slightly old school, non-flat screen HD TV, but a good range of channels. Great little pool, surrounded by the rooms. Great coffee in the mornings next to the office. Always cold bottles of water around as well.
Best of all is the location - 5 minutes walk to N Palm Canyon Drive. Great to walk out in the evening for a meal and a drink and leave the car behind. Plenty of parking at the hotel.
2 minor gripes - the free wifi was a bit up and down in room 6. Larry warned us, but his keep the front door open solution didn't really appeal. Secondly, although there are enough loungers to go round, there is not enough shade for those of us with fair skin. Could do with some umbrellas.
But we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Larry and Ed work hard to make this the nicest place we've stayed at. Super clean, beautifully decorated, friendly staff and a very convenient location make this a great stay. The pool was always in use, but never crowded. Coffee and juice in the morning was a nice touch.

Room Tip: Room 8 was the best choice, with a small private patio.
