“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We discovered this gem in Palm Springs and am almost reluctant to share it for fear we would not be able to return! The facility is a gorgeous 8 room hotel in a quite part of old Palm Springs but minutes away from restaurants and shopping. The two owners Larry and Ed are great guys that can not do enough for you including great restaurant suggestions, recreation activities etc. the rooms are very well done and maintained at a five star level. Their moto "arrive a stranger leave a friend" is very true as their return rate of "friends" is extremely high. A must stay in Palm Springs!

We’ve just returned back home and are ready to return! Ed and Larry are the greatest and the most friendly, delightful Inn keepers. Always ready to assist with places to dine, sights to take in, making certain we had all the extra amenities (hangers, towels, etc). We’ve been there twice now and both times the service was consistently fantastic, the rooms are clean and spacious and some have small private patio’s. The pool is well kept, as are the grounds and the Inn is within walking distance of the museum, downtown, and Spencer’s - one of the BEST restaurants in town. Highly recommend this quaint old Palm Springs Inn.

Ed and Larry are the friendliest, most considerate and helpful hotel owners we´ve met. They'll help you with anything! Where to shop, weather forecasts, the least windy golf courses to play, table reservations (got us a table at Spencer´s when we couldn´t)...
The Old Ranch Inn has a nice warm pool, our room was spacious with a large comfortable bed and kitchenette. Old tv set.
Perfect location, on a quiet street, just a short walk to all the action on Palm Canyon Drive.

Room Tip: Request a room by the pool.

We had a lovely three night stay at the Old Ranch Inn, with Ed and Larry as our friendly and helpful hosts! Our room was comfortable, the pool just the right temperature, and we enjoyed walking around the neighbourhood, and even up into the hills behind the inn. The neighbourhood is quiet, but definitely within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs. We will happily return to the Old Ranch Inn if we visit the desert again, and will recommend it to friends. Thank you!

We just got back from a long weekend in Palm Springs and it was awesome! This 8 suite Inn is quint and our room was a good size and had everything we could need. If the great room wasn't enough, the Inn is run by two of the nicest guys, Larry and Ed. They are the best! We'll be back!

This was my first time staying here. I booked on short notice for some desperately needed R & R. Ed and Larry were super! They were so welcoming and really went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable and relaxing!
O.R.Inn is a small, quaint, 8 suite inn in a convenient location just a few blocks from downtown P.S. - very easy to come and go, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, the P.S. Art Museum and, if you're up for the task: there's a good hiking trail in the hills behind. My corner room was lovely and spacious with a king bed, kitchenette, a/c, comfy chairs for reading and french doors out to a small patio along the back. Fresh coffee and fruit is available every morning poolside. The pool area is small but nicely kept with lounge chairs in sun and shade, and foam mats for floating about in the pool. It's also a very ambient setting to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The owners are very conscientious hosts to their guests. This property is very good value, clean and friendly. My stay was just what I needed and I will definitely return!!

We booked last minute and feel so lucky we did. We usually stay in the big high rise resort-like hotels and were a little nervous. But the owner, Larry was so pleasant on the phone and helpful ,I felt comfortable right away. I think were boutique hotel converts now...The room was perfect .The grounds and pool were quaint & immaculate. Felt totally safe and private.The location was a short walk to Palm Cyn Dr/ downtown . Everything was Great! We loved it. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a great weekend! Mark & Gigi

Room Tip: We were in room #5. It was perfect.
