We've gone to see the lights for the last four years, and I'd have to say this was the worst! : ( Extremely, extremely crowded, and the area seemed really dumpy and dirty! The line to go inside the Mission was hours long...I've never seen it so bad. I won't be going back :-(

I recently stayed at the mission inn resort for a wedding being held there. The rooms were very nice. Spacious, clean (minus a few ants), and have great views outside the windows. I just can't wrap my head around some of their prices. Yes, the room was nice, but not five star. Their brunch was overpriced and they didn't have... More

I had a very nice stay at the Mission Inn. The hotel is very beautiful with lots of history. I was hoping to get one of the older styled rooms but that was not in my budget. I did get a very nice modern styled room that was a lot larger than expected. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.... More

Our son and his family live in Riverside, and when we visit, this place is #1 on our list to visit. We have been there every season of the year. Had a lovely wedding day brunch on Mother's Day in the restaurant, stayed there during Festival of the Lights, had lunch, and exquisite dinners. All were positive experiences. The rooms... More

The Hotel is beautiful from the moment you valet your car. The building is 150 years old, and has been added onto in stages for the entire 150 years. The lobby is a sea of welcoming comfortable sitting groups. There are ballrooms, a Catholic Church, several chapels, a Buddist Temple, Severas resturants, a spa, multiple courtyards in the 2 city...

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.

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
