My husband and I are now young seniors so I was looking for a place to relax. It was also a belated birthday gift for hubby. We've tried various beach towns around Florida but we are not partiers so these destinations were not great for us. We began our stay with dinner at Mission Inns El Conquistador. Good food and...

This place is old Florida at its best. It is set in the sleepy little town of Howey in the Hills. There nothing else to do, nowhere else to go to do but why would you this place has it all!

First the positive. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the spa was excellent and the golf courses are great. The breakfast buffet was good and the pool is well kept. But the room was awful. The room was so damp it felt like camping. The dampness made the beds and bed linens feel wet and the pillows smelled from... More

This is a golf resort, though I was at Mission Inn on business. My room was quite large and nice, including a large bathroom. El Conquistador, the high end restaurant, is terrific too. Off season restaurant hours are erratic, and overall service was pretty good, though not great.

The Mission Inn is a beautiful property (4-5 stars) with a not-special-whatsoever (3 star) hotel on it. Many have given the property five stars but it is not anywhere close to being in a league with other five star golf/Florida/resort properties. The rooms desperately need to be gutted and redone. Plugs reminiscent of the days when the only thing to... More

Thank you for sharing your experience here at Mission Inn. We always appreciate a guest's comments, we however, have not proclaimed a 5star rating. We continue our upgrades throughout the property with all of our rooms receiving new a/c units, sliding doors, flat screen televisions, carpet, soft goods and upholstery. We've also updated our pool and hot tub area, as... More

Very nice location off the grid but close to many attractions within an hours drive, staff are outstanding and many convinces on site if you do not wish to travel. Need for a car for shopping and exploring.

We were greeted nicely and the staff was attentive but...we made our reservation online and through description we were expecting two queens. Not the case, two fulls. Comfy, but small. The hallways were dirty and there was this smell of cover up fragrance that was awful in the public areas. Dinning is over priced for what they deliver. If you... More

This resort was in a beautiful setting and quaint. Staff was very friendly, helpful and nice. My only complaint is that the pool area is very lacking. Small, boring, and the jacuzzi was filled with brown stains, we didn't even go in.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and somewhat updated. The atmosphere is extremely relaxing. If you enjoy golf this is a great place to faction. The 2 course are difficult depending on which Tee's you play from. The course is in excellent shape and the food in Nicker's restaurant is very good!

Never been here before, just got home, and can't wait to go back. First of all let me say this isn't your fast paced resort. I don't mean that to be negative, just the opposite.
