We spent New Years at the castle like hotel the Mission Inn. This property is unlike your cookie cutter hotel. The rooms are located around nook and crannings in this castle inspired hotel that gives you a sense of privacy. The suites are outrageous. The service is impecable and restaurants are 1st class. The staff everywhere always greeted us with... More

On a rainy night, we received an upgrade to a jr. suite...and had a delicious dinner. Enjoyed exploring the next morning, roaming around this extraordinary property. Every SoCal resident should be so lucky as to stay here once!

We stayed on the second floor in Room 163 and even though I’ve seen in person and through pictures of other rooms on TripAdvisor and on the hotel website that were even more impressive than ours, we both were quite pleased with our King room with a balcony on the street-view side. The hotel is beautiful and all around you’ll... More

I did not stay at the Mission Inn, but I walked all through its nooks and crannies. The place is simply amazing. They don't build things like this anymore! There were so many neat places to discover, and bougainvillea grew everywhere. Mosaics, towers, domes, chapels, buttresses, wrought iron, stained glass, elegant staircases... You could walk around for hours and you... More

We had a fabulous time at the Mission Inn, Festival of Lights in Riverside, CA. The King Deluxe room, interior off the Spanish Patio, was spacious, very clean, very comfortable bed and pillows and an excellent visit. We enjoyed walking around the outside of the hotel to see the lights and then because we were hotel guests, we were able... More

My daughter and I just stayed at the Mission Inn to experience their Christmas celebration. We enjoyed one night at the hotel, dinner at their steakhouse, and breakfast in their casual restaurant. I experienced enough to be able to say - stay there and you will have a very good time. Never having stayed there before I checked reviews and... More

A fantastic experience during the holiday season with the entire property dedicated to holiday themes and decorations. Be sure to dine outside, even in winter, to get the full effect of this amazing landmark.The staff does an excellent job of moving crowds through the hotel, and guests need only keep their room card handy to move freely about, even in...

At 5:00 the lights turn on. It is quite a sight. I was disappointed in how little there is to view inside the hotel. Security guards restrict access to guests only -- even the one bathroom with a mere 4 stalls. We ate at the mexican restaurant so I was able to use the bathroom. Everyone is restricted to the...

Stayed with family for Christmas outing and to enjoy the Festival of Lights. Although the place was crowded because of the holidays, we still enjoyed our stay. Staff were always prompt with our requests for service. One of our rooms was a junior suite and to our surprise, the room was fully decorated for the holidays. It was a treat.... More

Stayed one night during Festival of Lights. Extremely crowded, but the entire staff made me feel like a truly valued guest. Valet service was prompt and friendly; bell service was really great. Dined at Duane's, and the food and service were outstanding. Sunday brunch was very good, also with great service. The 75 minute tour of the hotel was informative... More
