Very large spacious room in a quaint historic hotel. Hotel staff was very friendly. Bath products were of high-end quality and available from the Spa within the hotel. I enjoyed a light appetizer with a glass of wine at their bar lounge where they had live music. One negative : you credit card will be automatically be charged for your... More

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding this past weekend and I have to say that the building itself is beautiful. Checking in and checking out was a breeze. Their Sunday Jazz Brunch is awesome. The only complaint I have about the room itself is the soundproofing. The walls must be a bit thin because I could hear... More

I was able to stay here while attending a conference in Riverside. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I was able to take a little time and walk around the grounds one morning and was pleasantly surprised at all the intricate details on the face of the building. There are so many things to... More

We had such a beautiful experience at this hotel for our 5 year anniversary! It was like its own little island of history, almost like we were living in an old-fashioned movie. We booked this trip using a Living Social deal. When we arrived at the hotel and told them it was our anniversary, they upgraded our room at no... More

The Hotel is really very, very good. Bathrooms need some updating, but everything is clean, functional. Obviously great architecture. The problem is that when you leave the property, there is an abundance of homeless people in just about any direction you walk. I have referenced this in previous reviews in Riverside and I have not really seen any progress in... More

I stayed at the Mission Inn on the dime of the production I was on to avoid the drive back to LA...I would have been happy at the Extended Stay for half the price. I wasn't even going to do a review but to be honest this landmark deserves a mention. The outside is stunning - like an old stronghold... More

There are few places that feel like a step back to another time, The Mission Inn delivers from the curb to the bath tub. Enjoyed our two-night stay. We ate at 2 of the 3 restaurants, both were tasty. Our beds were comfortable and amenities generous.

We stopped there on our way to vegas after our visit in LA. If u can make it to vegas, recommend going to vegas for a hotel.

Yes, it's a beautiful and historic place in a charming quiet town. My husband and I opted to eat outside because the restaurants are quite pricey. Our room was the major disappointment - through the walls and the door we could hear people talking and moving, disrupting our sleep during the night; even worse there were small insects/bugs flying around...

We stayed one night at the Mission Inn, and we loved the beautiful lobby and dining patio where breakfast is served. It was fun to see the names of so many celebrities who've stayed there at one time or another. The original owner of the hotel was quite the collector, and there are interesting pieces and antique furniture scattered throughout,... More
