We spent four nights at this lovely Inn. The proprietors, Larry and Ed, are absolutely delightful and they were so extraordinarily helpful, ensuring we had a memorable and pleasant stay. The room was very comfortable, extremely clean and the property well cared for. The Inn is located very near downtown Palm Springs, but is in a quiet neighbourhood that is very relaxing. All in all a great stay and we look forward to a future visit.

What a great cozy getaway. Larry and Ed are the best. Ed feels like an old friend and Larry
knows all the best places to eat and anything else you need to know. The cleaning lady did a great job every time and she is friendly too. This place is so-o-o relaxing! I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place. It is close to everything, yet feels like you are far away. Hope to return!

This small inn is a wonderful place to stay. It is kept in an impeccable manner, is charming in decor and it is comfortable in every respect. The owners are exceptional to deal with, kind and have great personalities.

This was our third stay in Palm Springs and each time we have stayed at a different boutique hotel. The hotel is in a very nice location well within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs. The hotel was quiet being off on a less-travelled side street. Ed was a gem being so friendly and open but I am afraid that we found Larry to be quite aloof. Ed's restaurant recommendations were spot on. I felt the hotel could have done somewhat more in being more welcoming in terms of providing a daily paper (or a communal one that all could read) and investing in a larger coffee maker might be a good idea. We were disappointed that the outdoor firepit was not available either in the morning or longer on the cool evenings. The firepit is on a 3-hour timer as the owners leave by 5:00 p.m.

The hotel was very clean and the rooms were excellent.

Our first visit will definitely not be our last. What a wonderful discovery my wife and I made when exploring where we should stay while in Palm Springs, and a great reward after a long flight from New York. This place is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood while within easy walking distance of the heart of downtown with its many shops and wonderful restaurants. Ed and Larry are helpful, attentive hosts who make great recommendations about places to see and places in which to find great meals. If you're looking for a hotel with lots of rooms and amenities and crowds and bars, etc., well, go somewhere else; this is not the place for you. If you want a place that is clean, cozy yet spacious, and very relaxing, look no further than Old Ranch Inn.

We loved the Old Ranch Inn. My husband and I thought the location was perfect. The Inn is just a couple of blocks away from downtown so we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. Larry was fabulous about recommending restaurants. We followed his advice and had wonderful breakfasts and dinners. The inn was very clean and the atmosphere was very restful. We will definitely return again. Larry and Ed are great hosts!

I STILL love this place! Like so many others have said, "what a find." This was my fourth time staying at the Old Ranch Inn. I can't say enough about this retreat. The owners, Ed and Larry always make me feel as if I am truly a valued guest. They are also extremely knowledgeable about Palm Springs, and came up with great dinner locations. I have never had an issue with anything here, and I plan on returning next November.

Our group had two of the eight rooms available. This means that six of our neighbors were strangers. Not the case, not even close. Within an hour or so, we were all chatting poolside, and realizing how much we all had in common. Where else can you visit with vacationing neighbors as if you have known them for years? Again, another great quality associated with The Old Ranch Inn.

The location is great. You are within minutes of downtown, and for us gamblers, very close to casinos.

The Old Ranch Inn is a must visit location when you are in Palm Springs. I would suggest booking early, and can't wait until my next visit, where I will meet some new non-strangers.

Thank you for your hospitality and making me feel like family!!!

Sorry I missed Teresa from housekeeping on this visit!
