Larry and Ed were exceptional hosts. We enjoyed being so close to restaurants and shops. Rooms were very clean -- comfortable beds -- the hosts definitely pay attention to detail. We plan to return to Palm Springs in December and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.

From the warm, positive reception to the ultraclean, quaint mini suite room we were very pleased with our stay at the Old Ranch Inn. Larry and Ed were very pleasant hosts, and made a great recommendation( and subsequent reservations for us) for dining at nearby Spencer's. ( a variety of well prepared fish, meat and fowl dishes, outstanding ambience and service, and a nice wine list)
This is a fairly compact hotel facility, and the pool is centrally located which gave us an opportunity to meet other guests as we walked by it to our room.
Our room had a small outside patio with a very nice view of the mountain, and it was an excellent spot to have a glass of wine and gaze at the stars after dinner.
Coffee,tea and fresh fruit were provided outside in the morning as a nice way to start the day.
We will be back for a future stay.

Larry and Ed are such wonderful hosts, and the accomendations at thier small Old Ranch Inn are great. Nestled at the base of the mountain, the pool and grounds are lovely, and it is an easy walk to all of the action on S. Palm Canyon Dr.

This was our 2nd time staying at the Old Ranch Inn in Palm Springs. We enjoyed it so much last year, that we knew we had to go again! This time was just as enjoyable!
We love the hosts, Larry & Ed! They are warm and personable, and have never failed us on giving us great suggestions for good places to dine! It was also my birthday...and they wished me a happy birthday many times during our stay!
I always enjoy looking at all the unique decorations in the rooms....which absolutely make this wonderful little place feel homey and comfortable! Larry is the decorator...good job! (AND, it is super clean!)
We already have our dates to go next March...can't wait!
Thanks for a fun stay!

Now that we have stayed here, we would not stay anywhere else in Palm Springs! Ed and Larry are the perfect hosts. They truly think of everything and all of the recommendations they gave us were spot on. The restaurants are all within walking distance and the tour company came right to the front door. Larry and Ed really made our vacation as we would not have known what was worth it or not on our own. Teresa kept everything immaculate too. The bed was super comfffortable and the entire place was spotless. We loved the courtyard surrounding the pool area and the pool itself was a perfect temperature always. The entire grounds were beautifully maintained. It was just so relaxing and peaceful. Something we really wanted in our Palm Sprinsg get-away. They have a great selection of DVD's too. Thanks Ed, Larry, and of course, Teresa! We will be back!!

The Old Ranch Inn is a gem in Palm Springs. The pool area was very relaxing and extremely inviting. Everything within Palm Springs "village" is within walking distance and other things like the aerial tram and Indian Canyons are a very short drive away. We enjoyed all the restaurant recommendations and had a great stay. If we are ever in Palm Springs again, we would stay here and I highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Old Ranch Inn last March for a short (5 nights) vacation. This year we returned for a 10 day stay. I love Palm Springs! The weather is glorious- highs in the 80's everyday. The blue sky, the palm trees, the mountains and lots of activities to do in the area. Staying in downtown Palm Springs in a small inn is the perfect option for me. I like being able to walk to restaurants. I was able to walk to the hike up the mountain behind the art museum and to a yoga studio while my husband went golfing.
The Old Ranch Inn is an ideal place to stay. The small setting and the great staff make for a perfect experience. The pool is never busy but a nice spot to check in with the other guests and their daily activities. The rooms are well appointed and if you need something- all you need to do is ask. I would recommend that you have Ed or Larry make reservations for you for dinner at the nicer restaurants- we were always getting glasses of complimentary champagne as a guest of the Old Ranch Inn.
