“6 Stays Are Not Enough!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013 via mobile

Just returned home from our 6th visit and we wish we could turn around and go right back. The minute we walk through the doors we feel relaxed and at home. Ed & Larry make us feel like welcomed family and the charming "old ranch" atmosphere brings a smile anywhere you look. Within walking distance to the middle of the village of Palm Springs, the location couldn't be better. If you want a big soulless hotel chain, forget Old Ranch Inn. If you want charm and warmth, Old Ranch Inn is your place!

We spent 3 nights with Ed and Larry at their beautiful inn in February of 2013. Delightful place. Immaculate, beautifully decorated; quiet; just lovely. Very convenient (less than 10 minutes walk?) to downtown. Ed and Larry are perfect hosts, even transporting guests to and from the local airport. We were in town for biking, and they made it very easy for us to store our bikes. They know everything about PS and made a couple of great restaurant recommendations. I would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: The hotel is only one floor. MOST of the rooms have french doors that look out onto the charming po...

Our 8-day stay at the Old Ranch Inn was everything we hoped it would be. The location makes it ideal for walking to the restaurants and shops or strolling through the quiet of the area. Larry gave us an informative introduction with local map and restaurant guide - enough to make anyone feel organized and ready to explore. Ed also looks after your every need, and adds to your appreciation of the area as he chats to you. We laughed a lot conversing with him. They sincerely enjoy making you welcome.

Our room (#8) was tastefully furnished and we instantly felt at home. We like to have enough of a kitchen to be able to make breakfast at our leisure, so with the full fridge and microwave, coffee pot and toaster, we could do so - or enjoy a drink or snack at any time. The pool was pristine, as was everything else, and there was various areas to lounge in sun or shade, watching the hummingbirds zooming about the garden. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Rooms 4,5,7 & 8 open directly onto the pool. We really like room 8 because it was at the end wi...

The Old Ranch Inn is a real find in Palm Springs. The owners are wonderful, warm, friendly and helpful - they make you feel so welcome. The rooms are perfect, the shower is great, the bed is wonderful. The little pool really hits the spot. It is a short walk to the center of Palm Springs, but when you are at the inn, you feel a million miles away.

We stayed in room one, which had a comfortable sitting area, fireplace, dining area, and kitchen. The "room" was extremely clean, comfortable, and convenient to downtown Palm Springs. The innkeepers are accommodating and helpful. In addition, fresh fruit, tea, and coffee was available each morning. I didn't rate it with five stars because it didn't have a Jacuzzi. We will definitely return to the Old Ranch Inn.

What would I do without TA. What a great suggestion. The inn was a lovely place to stay. The room (#7) was large, comfortable and charming. There was also a full size kitchen. It was in a convenient location close to so many restuarants and the Palm Springs art museum.
Ed, one of the owners, was so pleasant and informative. Would definitely stay there again.

A lovely intimate inn just a short walk to downtown and the PS Art Museum. Larry and Ed are the consummate hosts. Breakfast is served outside and is only fruit and beverages, but the citrus is from their own trees and the grounds, though smallish, are very pleasant including a heated and lit rectangular swimming pool.

Room Tip: We especially liked room 8; room 4 was just as nicely appointed though a bit smaller. Rooms along t...
