Later went to the tavern in the hotel. Very nice fun to look at all the pictures. Walked around the hotel . Quite a large amount of... More

I usually can find at least one thing wrong with a hotel when I travel and I couldn't find one thing, not one thing wrong with the Mission Inn, Riverside, CA. From the airport to the Inn and back again nothing but smoothe sailing. The person at the front desk was as courteous as can be as were all of... More

If your not from the area, this hotel is very easy to find: it truly is a landmark easily found when coming into town. Just to be clear, this is not an actual mission, but an old hotel that looks like a mission. It's rich with historical character and a fun place to get lost inside. Maze like stairways wind... More

We stepped off the plane, walked out to our waiting complimentary limosine from Ontario Airport and arrived at the hotel 20 minutes later. Our Glenwood double queen room was upgraded to a junior suite without our requesting it. The rooms were elegantly appointed with crisp, white bed linens, pillow shams and duvets and comfortable furniture and a flat screen t.v.... More

If you just want a cheap place to stay overnight, skip this place. The prices are higher here, but there is a lot to the place. It was built over a long time, so everything is not always easy to find, but you can spend hours just walking around the hotel looking for quirky art work, interesting views, weird architecture,...

I have lived in Los Angeles for many years and am very familiar with the Mission Inn. I considered having my wedding reception at this hotel.

We thought this was a fun little getaway to get in the Christmas spirit. A relatively short drive from Los Angeles, Mission Inn in Riverside is a surprise in the middle of, well, Riverside! A huge, rambling hotel built in three phases starting in 1876 and ending in 1931. During this holiday season it is all decked out in 3.5... More
