We rarely have occasion to stay at nice hotels in Southern California as we live here, but our house was being tented for termites and the pets were staying at my son's house in Riverside which he shares with several other college students. We stayed at the Mission Inn and it was a wonderful experience. It is a National and... More

This is a beautiful historic inn with rich history and beautiful, romantic grounds. However, when I found a 2 inch cockroach running around the room the morning I woke up, it was a bit disconcerting. It took 20 minutes to catch and trap the thing under a garbage can in the bathroom - making me late for my business meeting.... More

What a special place this is. I travel a lot for business, so staying somewhere this unique is a treat. The spa was luxurious, and the massage and mani-pedi erased the hard day of flying coach across the country. Their chef is excellent, every meal was well prepared and tastefully presented. The Inn has history, and timeless elegance. Why would... More

We live close to the Mission Inn and had a business dinner at Duane's (Restaurant at the Inn). We love the grounds and decided to treat ourselves with a romantic evening at the hotel. We booked through Expedia and the first room we were given was not good. The room was very small and seemed dark. The furnishings and bedspread... More

Even though we live close to the Inn we decided to spend a night just to have a romantic get away. In the summer months it's not crowded with a more relaxed feel. Our large room came with a king bed, balcony overlooked the pool and patio area. It was pleasant to just relax outside at different times of the... More

We stayed two nights at the Mission Inn, and had an AMAZING time! The service, restaurants, and rooms were outstanding. But the hotel itself is worth going out of the way for, you can devote an entire day to exploring it. I would most certainly stay here again.

This was terrible. The service in the Sunday brunch was great, BUT the food was terrible. They select the time you will be able to be seated even when you call in advance and book. Which was hard to do because there were not return phone calls. We had a large party that they would not accomodate until 12:30. The... More

I'm from out of state and have not stayed there since it was remodeled, but I'm glad I did. You definitely have to ask for a quiet room. There are social functions of all types going on and you don't want to be kept up listening to them. In our wing, the social functions ended about 7 pm so no... More

After my mother held her 50th birthday party at Mission Inn, we decided it would be grand to hold our wedding there. Thinking we may need to reserve well ahead of time, we were able to make an appointment with someone to book the venue for October of 2010. During the appointment, they made us first option for our date... More

I would stay at the Mission Inn again if business takes me to Riverside. Has to be the best option in the city. The Inn is really like staying in a museum, there is such history and Presidential weddings, famous honeymoons at this place it really is unique. We even saw a wedding party that I assume was getting married... More
