I have reviewed this hotel before, but I just have to say more about our latest visit.. We had dinner at Duane's and stayed overnight. It was a very special occasion, our 40th anniversary. We stayed in room 292 which is a handicap room. Very large, French Doors and two more large windows with plantation shutters. Double sinks and the... More

I came to Riverside, California for my niece's wedding. I had promised my wife we could stay at The Mission Inn. I am so glad we did. I booked the trip 6 months in advance. The receptionist suggested we stay up on the upper level by the Rotunda. I was glad we did. It was a beautiful room, that was... More

Buffet presentation is excellent, food is really good, the array of dessert is plenty , & servers are very attentive. Venue is quite attractive with its holiday decors in place already, you feel the season. All in all, I will go back if ever, an hour drive from OC , but worth it!

My wife and i stayed at Mission Inn this past week while visiting our son, who is a college student in Claremont. We normally stay in one of the nondescript hotels in Claremont, but for LESS money (and a 30 min freeway trip), we stayed in a MUCH more beautiful hotel. We paid $420 for 2 nites in a 4th... More

Arrived here after a long drive from LA - I had really high hopes of this place and I'm afraid it just didn't live up to the billing. Poor light, old fashioned and just not great. My room was small, with worn furniture and a tired looking bathroom. I can see why people like this place for its quirkiness, but... More

We have wanted to visit The Mission Inn for 25 or more years, finally making the trip a week or two ago. It is quite unique, very pleasant and a great place to visit when one also considers the grounds and other attractions within walking distance. It is obviously historic, which means old, but superbly maintained. The staff was courteous... More

My wife and I stayed here one night. We rented a room for $129.00 plus taxes. Unbeknownst to us, parking is not free: it is either $15.00 for self-park or $20.00 for valet parking...really... in Riverside?? They do not advertise their parking charges, and the location of the Inn practically demands you park with them due to the sketchy surrounds.... More

I found this wonderful place by browsing online for a cheap weekend getaway from L.A. My husband and I decided to go and it's been one of the best places we've stayed so far. The building is absolutely stunning with different architectural styles, I felt like I was in a small village in Europe. The service was adequate to the... More

The grounds and hotel are absolutely beautiful! Lots of antiques and they have outstanding customer service. The rooms are small but comfortable. My only complaint was the restaurants on site. The first night I ate at the Mexican restaurant and although the customer service was good, the food was only so so and their famous Margaritas were the worst I've... More

This historic landmark is just beautiful. I loved many courtyards, fountains and fine dining through the Inn. Room I stayed in was nice, clean and comfortable. I know they have suites too, but it was outside my price range. Next time I am visiting the spa! Location is great - downtown Riverside with many restaurants, bars, shops and places to... More
