Great Mexican Food and the atmosphere was beyond compare. We had to wait for a table on the patio (we didn't have reservations) so we went to the bar.

I noticed some people confuse the "tour" with the "museum". You do sign up and begin the Mission Inn tour at the museum door but two different activities. The museum is a small room that can easily be done in 20 minutes. There are photographs and artifacts that showcase the development of the Mission Inn through the years. There is... More

We happened to be walking around and found the museum. There was even a gentleman who was there and told us a story about some of the paintings. A nice find when you are looking for something to do.

The mission Inn holds many secrets-do not miss the tour given by the little museum. We were the only ones on the tour and were lucky enough to get the long version. See the magnificent chapel with Tiffany windows and glorious gold saturated Retabla (the wall behind the altar) from Mexico circa 18th century . The Oriental room and garden-eclectic... More

While at the Mission Inn, it feels like one has stepped back into time and place. Surrounded by history, beauty and ambiance you can enjoy your dining experience or just a glass of wine and feel transported into another time and place. The food is excellent as is the service.
