Dating back to the 1930s, the “spirit of the Old West’s” Old Ranch Inn in Palm Springs, situated in the Historic Tennis Club neighborhood, is just a stroll away from downtown Palm Springs.
Rest, restore, and relax in the inclusive LGBT-friendly, pet-friendly, privately walled, gated boutique hotel sanctuary with fascinating historic Hollywood celebrity connections.
With a nod to the western desert roots and surrounding San Jacinto Mountains, Old Ranch Inn provides a luxurious, relaxing experience with convenient access to local dining, shopping, golfing, and hiking.
About the Old Ranch Inn in Palm Springs
Each of the hotel’s eight impeccably clean suites, five kings and three queens, is decorated with a signature identity. All include back patios and in-room Keurig coffeemakers along with kitchenettes complete with refrigerators and microwaves. The Premier King Suite features all the amenities plus a luxurious fireplace with a living, dining area, kitchenette, and separate bedroom.
Live the Palm Springs Lifestyle Here
The centerpiece of the romantically secluded property is its gorgeous aquamarine heated pool. All part of the Palm Springs way of life, guests can enjoy relaxing poolside amid comfortable, turquoise lounge chairs, shady umbrellas, with pool towels, complimentary sunscreen, a unique water fountain, and a party bar.
Top off the poolside fun with your favorite pool float and library book for relaxing reading or just taking a nap. Interestingly enough, the Palm Springs area boasts more than 50,000 pools, more than any other destination else in the country. When the nights get chilly, open fire pits are the perfect place to hang out.
Well-behaved pets are welcome here at a premium. Guests of Old Ranch Inn must be 21 and over. You’ll appreciate the trickling fountains, birds chirping in the grapefruit tree, giant sculptural cacti, and grand pink splashes of its colorful bougainvillea plants.
Inspired by the history of the Old West, Indian Canyon, and Coachella Valley, the hotel is in an ideal location, mere steps away from beautiful hiking trails, luxury shopping, exceptional dining, and the exciting nightlife of Palm Springs.
