Our Holiday Getaway in California, Nov. 28th to Dec. 6th, 2014, was the toughest of my winter vacations to arrange. On the flip side, the time spent on lights and activities in those 7 days was an absolute treasure. Our last 2 days, the 3rd and the 4th at the Mission Hotel and Spa , were planned on purpose, because... More

Read about this hotel in AAA magazine and decided to book a stay. Beautiful during the Christmas holiday season. Got a package deal offered online. But beware: books up months in advance, including dining reservations. This was our first trip. Next time will know to make dining reservations way ahead of time. Could not get any for any meal of...

We attended a conference at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a lot of history from American presidents to Japanese royalty. The workmanship in the hotel is from a different time and it was a joy to just wander and take in all the architecture and details. Our room was very comfortable. We were here in... More

My wife and I stay here for our anniversary every year and we have never been disappointed. The rooms are spacious and clean and the property takes you back in time. It is elegant and classy and the customer svc is fantastic. We enjoy the resturants especially Diane's prime steak house. Looking forward to our next visit.

I absolutely love the Mission Inn. This was our 3rd time staying there and our 1st time staying during the Festival of Lights. I requested a one of the larger Glenwood rooms because we were meeting family and planned to open Christmas presents with them. Our room was fabulous, it was 2 rooms really. It even came with a live... More

Check In went smoothly and our room was located directly facing pool area. When the Christmas lights went on around 5pm our view was spectacular. Large windows that open. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings. although very crowded with visitors there for holiday events and to see the lights this added a festive air. The mall area outside of... More

We went to see the Festival of Lights. We only had a standard room, but it was huge with high ceilings. The bathroom was very large and separate. The only downside was there was only a tub with a shower over. It was during Christmas season and there were many parties, so it was not quiet, but we didn't mind... More

I had heard and read so much about the Festival of Lights at the hotel. With much excitement, I convinced my in-laws to join my family to drive two hours East to see them. We were so extremely disappointed. Now, I appreciate the hotel owners for putting this up and making it free to the public. However, it was certainly... More
