Who would have thought that the old abandoned building I use to break into as a child would be reborn. I had been to the Inn a few times over the last 30 years, but had never stayed longer than I had too. My sister choose to get married in the chapel there, it is incredibly beautiful and very intimate.... More

I stayed here a few months ago with my girlfriend for a wedding. The hotel stay was a terrible experience, and it wasnt the worth the money. Several problems occurred throughout our stay. The major problem that occurred was the hotel ruined the bride's wedding night. The hotel staffed lost the wedding chest and items that contained the Bride's personal... More

Bought a package here. Had no TV movie rental, waited 40 minutes for pool side food only to find out I was charged 15% more for the great service. Nice clean place, but a "F" for value and service. I wouldn't stay here again. If you're visiting I would recommended elsewhere. Too expensive. No value.

I got to stay here briefly for work so I didn't get to enjoy all that the hotel had to offer. Checked in pretty late and had to leave super early. However, I decided to roam the hotel when I got it. It is huge and beautiful with so much to explore. As I was walking around (by myself) I... More

Kitsch. Hodgepodge of cobbled inauthentic styles. Calif, Mexican, Tuscan and anything else thrown in. Go for the day. Check it out and stay elsewhere. Food mediocre and very overpriced. Rooms are clean. Bathrooms ok. Hotel very hard to navigate as it is all cobbled together without rhyme or reason. Parking 20 a night in a ok downtown area. In room... More

Absolutely beautiful grounds/courtyards. Have stayed here twice and first room was nicer, 2nd room a little dated but there was a walk-in closet which helped keep our mess out of the room and we could enjoy the space better. The rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean. Have eaten in dining room for breakfast and Las Campanas--prices a little high... More

Stayed here with my spouse on Labor Day - what a pleasant surprise! The hotel is really quite something - secret courtyards, elaborate architecture, an unbelievable art collection, displayed for all to enjoy, and caring service. We stayed in one of the "author rooms" (so named because famous authors have spent the night in a number of them) and were... More

I had a terrible experience at this hotel and would never stay here again or recommend that anyone choose the hotel. I asked for the name of the GM and the front desk refused to give it. After pushing them they gave me the name (but misspelled) and refused to give me a phone number or direct extension. I called... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Mission Inn during the Festival of Lights. The lights were so beautiful. We stayed in a Mission room at the top level. When we saw our room it looked so different. It felt medieval and very romantic. The bathroom was ok, nothing special and really small. It was fun to take a carriage... More
