Take the tour and along with the weekend buffet, you have yourself a great evening. The tour gives you insight into the history of the hotel and a Riverside memory that you won't have elsewhere. There's a small museum you'll visit as well.

It was very neat to see all the stars that have visited the hotel. They also had some parrots that talked to the guests outside and their pool and outdoor area was beautiful

After spending time in Riverside for years, we visited the Mission Inn for the first time and took the tour offered by the museum docents. It was so incredibly facinating! Frank Miller's contribution to Riverside history with Donald Trump's business skills and PT Barnum's showmanship cannot be overstated. Our guide, Donna, did a fantastic job bringing Miller and the histories... More

The Mission Inn is a historical landmark, and its history is well developed in the on-site museum. You can walk around the museum or sign up for a guided tour of the hotel from knowledgeable docents. For example, a couple of decades ago, the beautiful hotel's future hung in the balance--and a single city councillor's vote saved it from the... More

We recently spend 5 days and had a wonderful time. The room was spacicious and very comfortable, our room over looked the pedestrian mall and it was wonderful to open the windows and watch and listen to the activities of the morning. There were several shops and places to eat on the mall. The staff at the hotel were very... More

The Mission Inn is iconic. It is a historic landmark in Riverside, California. The Inn has lots to see inside and out. The restaurants are excellent and the staff is great. Having stayed in a few of the rooms I can say it is a treat. They are a bit small but quaint. In December the lighting of the Mission... More

Good food and wonderful atmosphere! Beautiful outdoor seating under wysteria covered arbors. The service was excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. I would return and also recommend the Mission Inn dining experience.

Learning the history of the Inn was very interesting, 1 1/2 hours not enough for all the knowledge the docent has to share.
