Riverside California probably isn't the first place you think of going, but if you need a hotel in this town this is the place to stay. Old Spanish architecture was very clean and spacious rooms. Has beautiful grounds with a nice outdoor restaurant to have Mexican food in the front and nice little hidden Italian restaurant further into the back.... More

This is a beautiful hotel with wonderful amenities. Every room is different. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms, large and spacious. Prices vary, so pick accordingly. All employees were very helpful. They have a lovely spa which I recommend you take advantage of. The pool area is very nice. They don't have nearly enough lounge chairs for the number of... More

My husband and I decided to have a "staycation" and stay in one of our local "luxury" hotels for the night. It was the first time for both of us. Booked online and arrived around 7 pm. Check in was easy and the hotel was nice, if a bit old (although that is one of the things people stay here... More

Whenever I am anywhere near Riverside and I need a hotel, I chose THE MISSION INN. I grew up in Santa Barbara and it just feels like home to me. The rooms are very comfortable, the view of the pool is enchanting with all the palm trees , flowers and the scent of the spa permeates the pool area. Yes,... More

Very nice older hotel/resort . Clean hotel and nice amenities . The restaurants are a little pricey. Could use a few more chaise lounge chair at the pool area. Very nice and helpful staff. Take advantage of the eucalyptus steam room at Kelly's spa. It's included in the hotel stay.

I travel to California a lot because my boyfriend is stationed in San Diego. We have stayed at the Mission Inn a few times and it is definitely our favorite. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The staff is kind and very helpful. The whole hotel is beautiful. We love just walking around looking at everything and definitely recommend... More

Admittedly, "old" is kind of the point here. It's a mission. Missions are old. Right. Still, while it's a very nice place in many respects, some of the ways in which it feels are of the outdated, not maintained variety, rather than merely the period piece, true to its times variety. But the nitpicking stops there. We loved it. It's... More

The older construction, with carpeted wooden floors, makes the place terrible a for noise control. Anyone walking above your room or in the hallways WILL wake you up, unless you're the soundest of sleepers. The old room doors allow lots of light from the hallways into your room. The noise level from the courtyard in the back and and Las... More

We stayed at The Mission Inn Hotel and Spa for one night while traveling to another location but the place was beautiful. I wish we had more time to experience the facility. We did take the opportunity to take the tour which was an extra charge of $13. The history of the place was worth it but being that we... More

The architecture was great. The courtyard was spectacular by day. Outdoor dining spectacular at night with the quartz fire tubes. Be sure to say hello to the resident parrots. The rooms, while clean, were a bit Spartan. I have to say the rest of the hotel made up for that.
