I found the Old Ranch Inn online while searching for motels in Palm Springs, and I couldn't have been luckier in finding it.
It is a beautifully restored motel, with 8 rooms around a pool.
The owners, Larry and Ed, are gracious and very friendly.
(One day lying by the pool on a very hot afternoon, Ed came by with bottles of cold water for the guests.)
They did a wonderful job restoring the motel, and the room I was in was very plush and comfortable, cooled by an amazing completely quiet air conditioner with a remote control.
The location is prime, walking distance to the downtown Palm Springs area, and as it happened there was the weekly Thursday night street fair when I was there, and it was a pleasant evening walk.
(Food, music, crafts, people watching !)
There are several good restaurants walking distance also, not to mention a coffee house.
I feel fortunate that I found this place, and am already looking foreward to staying when I go to Palm Springs again.
