I disliked that the best decorated area (hotel grounds) were off limits to all but dinner and hotel guests. But, I do understand the need to control the grounds for the benefit of their guests. I'd like to take in a dinner there in the future under the décor.

Our family had the lunch buffet at this restaurant on December 22, 2014 and it was delicious. The cost of the buffet is $18 per person and includes one beverage like soda/pop. The first section of the buffet is a salad bar with a variety of vegetable selections and a variety of salad dressings. There is a good selection of... More

Wonderful display, very busy but worth the travel and the crowds. Make a reservation to avoid disappointment. Great menu choice but also consider the buffet, great value with 3 courses at $35. The outdoor eating space in the hotel was awesome and with the outdoor heaters made you feel very comfortable and the scenery was fantastic. As a customer at... More

We sprayed at the Mission Inn for the Christmas Festival of Lights. The hotel was crowded. We were told by the front deck to be sure to make breakfast reservations. We called about 3 pm and were told the latest reservation was at 9:45. We took it. We arrived about ten minutes early and checked in. We were told we... More

Lots of good food and shops to check out while strolling around the Mission Inn during the holidays. We went to Proabition for dinner and the 30's themed restaurant was a nice change and the food was good too. They have specialty drinks and a huge whiskey list. Our group tried some of the specialty drinks and they enjoyed them.... More

Sounded like a good idea at the time; however, hot food was barely warm, overcooked, and dry. Fruit was good, pastries cold. Better off ordering from menu.

We ate both dinner and breakfast at the Mission Inn restaurant during a recent stay. For dinner, we were able to get seated in the Spanish Patio which was well heated and beautifully lit and decorated for the holidays. The filet was excellent. My husband chose the prime rib on buffet which was also very good. Service was attentive. Very... More

A group of us stay here for the Festival of Lights every Dec., it's our new "annual" trip. The hotel is a fabulous step back into early California history and architecture. We've never had a bad room, always beautiful inside and usually with a view of the lights, etc.

What a grand old place with every inch decked out for the holidays! It is the center of the Riverside Festival of Lights. We did not stay there - just had a drink in the historic Presidential Lounge - but I can tell it is a grand old place and I believe I will make it a point to stay... More
