We stayed at the Old Ranch Inn from February 18 to 20th, 2014, in room 4. The Inn is located a few blocks off the main drag of Palm Springs so it's easy to walk to anything. The rooms are clean and well decorated - the Inn has been renovated fairly recently. The room we had had a walk in shower, instead of a tub shower, which we very much appreciated.
The owners, Larry and Ed, were very friendly and helpful - gave us advice about the area and were concerned about our comfort in the Inn.
The neighborhood is good but the Inn has a locked front door after about 5 or 6 pm (you have a key to open it) so people cannot just wander into the place.
The decorating touches lent a "homey" feel instead of the institutional feel you get in some hotels.
The Inn is attractive, clean and well appointed.
The negative aspects of the Inn are as follows:
1. The office closes at about 5pm so if you need anything after that, you're out of luck.
2. "Breakfast" is pretty modest. Best to get breakfast from a restaurant.
3. The keys are on a key ring that is large and weighs a lot. It's uncomfortable to carry it in your pocket. A modern card access would be an improvement.
4. The air conditioner in our room did not cool the room off very quickly and would not get the room really cool. And this was when the nights were cool.
Overall, it's one of the better places we've stayed and we'd go back.
