We visited The Mission Inn's lovely grounds surrounding their creative architecture, (the original owner designed his vision with elements from all of the California Missions,) during the opening of the town's holiday gala "The Festival Of Lights." It was a cornucopia of Christmas events rolled into one night for us, but visitors are welcome all throughout the season until shortly... More

My daughter was having a milestone birthday this weekend. She had always dreamed of staying at the Mission Inn as she has grown up near it and visited the property many times. One of her favorite things in life is, or now was, their Sunday brunch. So I thought what a nice surprise it would be to book her an... More

We had high hopes for the hotel. But when we checked into the hotel the room was so hot. We thought someone had turned on the heater instead of the cooler. But late we found out the air conditioning was broke and we had to call the engineers. They couldn't fix it and we had to check into another room.... More

It's supposedly haunted and I can see why. It is a hotel that was cobbled together in sections that leave one thinking of the Winchester Mystery house. No, there are no doors to nowhere but passages shrink and floors creek. My room was spacious but a bit drafty. I liked the room and the bed was firm. My only complaint... More

What a beautiful, old structure in Riverside. They have many restaurants and tremendous photo ops throughout. It's nice to know that so many past presidents have stayed there. The rooms are small but classy. You can hear a lot in the room next door, unfortunately. It has a old feel with updated decor. I recommend it but not for a... More

We stayed at this resort from 3/14/15 to 3/16/15. On our third night of the stay, just as we were getting ready to go to bed, my 9 old found a bottle of asthma inhaler in his bed, buried in the blankets. It was not ours!!! We were rather horrified because we also have a two year old and it... More

This was my second time at the Mission Inn and I just love this place! It is truly beautiful place to stay ~ the interior of the hotel & the pool area are both lovely. The staff are friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. They also have several restaurants to choose from right in the hotel.

The Mission Inn lived up to my anticipation and expectation. Not only is it beautiful and well maintained, but the staff is their secret weapon . The standard rooms are large and comfortable and have windows that open so that the air conditioning does not have to be on all the time. The rooms above the spa have a lovely... More

This hotel is the most beautiful hotel I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. It is so warm and inviting with flowers and palm trees and bougainnvillea everywhere! Everywhere you look there are beautiful wall paintings. Old world charm. If you desire to go to the spa, they are booked 2 weeks in advance on the weekends so... More
