Reviewed January 30, 2014

This was our first time to the Palm Springs area. It was also just 2 days after a hectic season of business and the start of our all important vacation break. Mutual friends suggested this perfect place to stay as it was their favorite.

Palm Springs is like a flash of the past with rejuvinated neighborhoods of all styles and taste. It's very high-end WITHOUT the attitude! The Old Ranch Inn was fabulous starting with the easy parking of our car. A tastefully decorated breezeway led us to the quaint office. There, Larry greeted us and checked us in. Although we anticipated a 3pm arrival, we had misplaced memory that Pacific time was one hour earlier than our state of Utah. No bother, Larry was extremely welcoming and we apologized for being dummies. We simply enjoyed a well planned pool area with table settings and PLENTY of room to stretch out. We had unloaded the car and carefully placed our things outside the room with no intention to have our housekeeping gal rush on our account. But while enjoying wine, we suddenly discovered she was lifting our heavy luggage and boxes, everything was being placed in the room! We rushed over to assist, but this is the cache of this establishment. Total customer care. She was a sweetheart and the room sparkled!

Our room (#12) was decorated with such warmth and charm, but it was substantial and very rich feeling. The bed was sublime. The bathroom even felt artsy along with the other multi colored walls. The furniture was very comfortable too. A/C remote control by the bed! The kitchen had everything one could want. Our friends arrived and by that time, I had prepared cheese plates and opened some chilled champagne,.... such is the spice of life and this wonderful place will help you achieve it.

Ed and Larry, from the start you brought on the great vibe. Ed with your emails and follow up, great personality. Larry - thanks for the warm greeting! And the ensuing conversations with you later were wonderful. Our vacation started with meeting you guys and well - we're in love with your creation there and you should be very proud. It's what people that appreciate time away from hectic life need. The pool was fresh, beautiful gardening, a restored piece of Palm Springs History that feels special - you've done it all. Thank you for the excellent treatment and perfect stay. This is how it's done RIGHT. Cheers to your success from the guys at Lake Powell. See you in the future!

The Old Ranch Inn is the place to stay in Palm Springs. This relaxing little retreat is within walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and action along Palm Canyon Drive. Larry and Ed are the friendliest and most accommodating Inn Keepers you will ever find. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The pool was warm and inviting. We will definitly return to The Old Ranch Inn. Thanks Larry and Ed.

The best stay we have ever had. The room was excellent and super clean. The whole place was clean, Very private, only 8 rooms set up for 2 to sleep, thus very quite place for adults. Ed and Larry, the owners had every answer to every question relating to where to eat and want to do. Will for sure go back soon. Felt like we were in a very private home. Thank you Ed and Larry for all of your hard work. Rai & Paula

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!
