Stayed here for an athletic event in Riveside. The location was convenient to the event with coffee and sandwich shops just across the street. I loved the lobby that had several different areas to sit and mingle. There is a bar for a cocktail that was comfortable and great appetizers. The Italian restaurant was good but the Mexican restaurant was... More

Special place for us but spoiled by our last visit...our third time here celebrating a birthday weekend was marred by a phone call from the front desk that my wife's wallet was found in "the guest bathroom area". All of our cash for the weekend was gone, thankfully nothing else, but the damage was done. The security representative was informative... More

I'd eaten here a few times, but never stayed as a guest before. I've stayed at other historic properties, and sometimes rooms can be a bit small and weird. Older places may not have been built with individual closets or bathrooms in mind, which sometimes leads to odd shaped, small, or uninviting rooms despite the glory of public spaces. I'm... More

I booked a room for one night and am so glad it was the Mission Inn. From checkin to checkout, it was a joy. The staff (front desk, dining room, concierge, valets, etc.) is wonderful. Their attitude speaks well for the management here. Courtesy and positive attitude enhanced my visit immensely. Raul (in the Mission Inn Restaurant) was great. Unlike... More

I loved this hotel - the bizarre architecture, sumptuous furnishings, the history and then ambiance - what a treat. Our room looked over the pool with very comfortable beds and good quality toiletries. We went to an evening walk to explore the whole hotel and what a fascinating place it is - so many different nooks and crannies. Next morning... More

We arrived early. 2:30pm. Room not ready. Suggested another room to us. We declined as the room they had was smaller. We reserved an upgrade room. Had a drink. Tired and sleepy not romantic at all. Now 4pm came we have waited 90 minutes. Now we settled for a smaller room. Room is mediocre at best. They wanted to hold... More

We were originally staying in LA but made a change to our itinerary after finding this hotel. The pictures online looked wonderful and we decided that it was worth the hour drive to stay here on our final night. We were so glad that we did! The resort itself is breathtaking.
