Recently stayed at the Mission Inn on business (August 22-28th). First I would like to say that the architecture was amazing - took a wandering tour of the grounds and took a ton of photos of the different styles, the art work, carvings, etc. The hotel is a lovely creation and has been artistically constructed as well as nicely restored....

I didn't stay at The Mission Inn, I took the tour. The hotel architecture and grounds are beautiful. I loved Kelly's Spa, the lotions smell and feel great on your skin. I also loved Caseys Cupcakes. The shop won Cupcakes Wars on tv. The cupcakes are so good, the Smokin Smores was my favorite.

slamming door, squeaky wood, stomping feet, water flowing in the drain, toilet flush. All happen at 2am, 3am, 8am. Requested to change room first night, didn't help. Not to mention I got lots if bed bug bites an hour after I left the hotel.

We love the Mission Inn. It is our go-to getaway place and go a couple times a year for a night. We have always been happy with our room until this time. The room itself was very nice but we could hear our neighbor clearing his throat and moving around his room! He started making phone calls at 6 a.m.... More

My husband and I waited years to finally get away long enough to enjoy a stay at the Mission Inn. We always visited it during the Festival of Lights every year and found the hotel to be gorgeous. Finally, our turn came to stay at the Inn for our anniversary, and we were just overwhelmed with excitement. Boy were we... More

We (my husband and three sons), have just spent one night in this fantastic hotel. We were so pleased we found it! The room, pool area and food were all excellent. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We sank into our beautiful beds with crisp white linen and pillows to die for! Our room service food was prompt and delicious.... More

The Mission Inn has been around since before Palm Springs. It is the "in" place to go for anyone who enjoys exquisite architecture, great food and rooms furnished with meticulously maintained antiques and luxury linens. If you enjoy a jacuzzi or dip in a crystal pool, with an outdoor bar you will love this magnificant resort. Kelly's Spa at The... More

My husband put this nice surprise together for our 40th wedding anniversary. I had visited the Mission a few years ago for lunch only. So here we are back again for a one night stay. Arrived to a 105 degree Monday afternoon! Check in went smoothly. We stayed in a 1 floor jr. suite,a nice sized room with living room.... More

After reading about this historic hotel for many years and with it being only a short distance from San Diego, we finally booked a night this past week. As soon as we arrived, checked in and walked around for about an hour, we decided to stay an extra night. We were so taken with the beauty, history, landscaping, cleanliness, and... More

This is a beautiful historic hotel. The setting, architecture, and landscape are gorgeous, and we had a lot of fun exploring the hotel and its surroundings. The pool is very relaxing and nicely landscaped, although it could have used more lounge chairs and tables. The hotel is also very well located in downtown Riverside, near many great restaurants and shops.... More
