We were here in October and loved it, but at this hotel your room location is everything. This time we were put in a room overlooking Orange street-wow go Orange street, two nights of endless drunken shouting, a few screams, lots of sounds of vomiting, and my personal favorite, listening to a nice guy ( at 245am) loudly explaining to...

My wife had visited this historic hotel in December on an excursion to view the building and especially the lights. She felt that I should also have that experience, so she booked a stay for Jan 5th, the last day of the light display. Wandering around the interior and grounds we actually saw more than what she experienced on the... More

We stay here at least twice a year. It's like a mini visit to Europe in Riverside. This hotel is a historic architectural wonder, with a spanish courtyard restaurant, a presidential lounge, beautiful furnishings and comfortable, clean rooms with all amenities. All rooms are slightly different and reasonably priced for a historic hotel. We like to look over the courtyard,... More

My wife and I took our mothers to the Mission Inn to see the lights at Christmas time and check out the buffet in their restaurant. We had a great experience! The lights were incredible as was the buffet. I highly recommend this place, it's great!

Great hotel! Wonderful architecture, great service and a special place to visit during the Festival of Lights at Christmas. The staff were excellent from start to finish and it's just a great place for a relaxing stay. We stayed in a "basic" room (the Deluxe rooms), which was a good size for a King room and everything that we needed.... More

When our father died in September, my sister arranged to have a luncheon for all of our relatives and out-of-town guests at the Cherry Valley Highland Springs Resort and Conference Center. A wedding reception proved to be more lucrative for the folks in Highland Springs, so they cancelled our luncheon at the last minute. I am so glad they were... More

Although we had visited the Mission Inn on previous occasions, this was our first time to stay during the holiday Festival of Lights. The hotel itself is a thoroughly impressive historical gem. The authentic early California architecture, antique furnishings and overall ambiance make you feel that you just stepped into a time machine to re-visit the 1800's. The annual Festival... More

An extraordinary establishnent which should be visited if you are in that part of California. It has grown in size and shape over the past hundred years until it is now really huge. We happened to stay there soon after the Christmas decorations had been switched on, and it was a truly amazing experience. The staff were very friendly and... More
