My Girlfriend surprised me with a day/evening at the "Mission Inn", Riverside, CA. for my birthday. This historic hotel with several dining facilities is a true gem in the Inland Empire of Southern California. From check-in to check-out, the entire staff was extremely friendly and available at a moments notice. Rooms are immaculate and extremely comfortable. Dining varies from snacks... More

Rooms are well appointed all different levels within hotel some not see easy to find ours was overlooking the Spanish garden area great views of the architecture but only if you went out the front door of your room.

Upon arrival I was surprised to see that the hotel was first and foreman st a tourist trap. From the signs to park for tours... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with dear friends at the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Riverside CA. This is a spectacular destination hotel designed to look like an old Spanish mission. Coincidentally, I delivered newspapers to residents of the former Mission Inn Apartments in the late 1970's. It has come a very long... More

Ever since I got a gift certificate from my best friend in college I've been staying at this historic gem. If you want a quick getaway from the hustle of LA, It can be a tranquil, peaceful stay during the right season. Great wine selections and and unbeatable brunch value.

I have been staying at The Mission Inn since this past Sunday. I have stayed here in the past and have had a terrible experience. I decided to give them another try but I am starting to believe I made a bad choice. The first night I paid for a deluxe King room upon check in I was given a... More

Wonderful experience, albeit a short one. We were late-ish arriving but were able to sample the hospitality on offer. The room was large, bathroom had all that was needed (including a shower cap which has not been provided at subsequent hotels). Breakfast was splendid in a charming location even though the choice of background music was a little heavy for... More

I grew up in Riverside and knew of the Mission Inn, but came back to Riverside recently and had the opportunity to stay. By far the most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in. The property is gorgeous. Robes and Starbucks coffee, even in the most basic room. We spent over an hour just wandering the hotel. It feels like a... More

Stayed here during the Christmas season so I got to enjoy the Festival of Lights. Pls see photos. I gave it a 4-star rating because aside from the lights and historic building - which I absolutely loved, there was nothing exceptional with the service and the rooms may need some updating from the usual wear. Because of the age of... More

The grounds are superb, the service is excellent. They went out of their way to find my friends lost credit card and were extremely courteous and funny! Security looks just like the Secret Service which makes for a fun setting! Photo opp's around every turn, great fixtures and timeless elegance! I will stay here again.
