The location is great. The owners are very helpful with any question or request. This a charming adults only place. It more than met our expectations. I would most definitely stay here again. And we plan to next year

This place is about as central as you can get- 4 blocks away from "ground zero" of downtown. Very very close to Spencer's and the art museum as well. Free parking, large rooms with nice beds. Of course there is the obligatory pool, which is nice. Continental breakfast is very nice, with great pastries. Free DVD rentals with a good...

This is such a nice place! Very clean and quite and is the perfect location. Very short walk to town and all the things it offers. We will totally stay here again when we're back in the area. We stayed in room 2. Lovely!

I wouldn't normally give a property a 5 rating, but the Old Ranch Inn so exceeded my expectations that I thought it really deserved an "excellent", as it ticked the most important boxes for me: location and quiet. The booking online was so easy; I was able to pick the quietest room, away from the pool and lobby area. The...

We booked this Inn based solely on the reviews --- they were all so positive and wonderful, and the price was great, especially considering it was New Years' Eve weekend. We booked two nights, and when we arrived, we were excited to see that the location was close to Palm Canyon Drive but not too close as to be loud....

Was looking for the perfect inn in Palm Springs and I found it. Quiet location close to shopping and business needs, beautiful accommodations with style and comfort tastefully pulled together, kitchen and bath areas that are uniquely separate, privacy in a serene pool area, and the best customer service that you could find. Jim, Gwen and Rosie were great with...

First Hotel that we have stayed at that was more old style motel than chain. Loved it. This small 8 room boutique hotel was idea and encapsulated the feel and vibe of Palm Springs. The central heated pool provided that relaxed summer at a friend’s backyard feeling. The towering mountains provided a great outlook that constantly changed as the day...

The people, the decor, everything here is just right for a relaxing stay. We didn't want pretentious. We wanted quiet and relaxing. The Old Ranch Inn was exactly that. The room was very good size and we really appreciated the kitchen being off of the room, not in the room. We could bring our leftovers back and reheat them. We...

The Old Ranch Inn is a special place that my husband and I found some of the best rest we had ever gotten while traveling. Everything from the comfortable rooms to the beautiful mountain scenery just exudes relaxation and tranquility. The rustic western decor blends beautifully with the desert and makes travelers feel right at home. This boutique hotel offers...

I last stayed here in 2012 and my subsequent visits to Palm Springs were to other hotels as a result of having youngsters with me. All I can say is that The Old Ranch Inn is just as good as before. Wonderfully relaxing and in a quiet residential district, yet just 5 minutes walk to the action in Palm Canyon...
