The Entire Inn was so festively decorated it was absolutely charming. Each area was accented with hearts and the floral arrangements were gorgeous. The lighting was over the top. Unfortunately the rooms - being old and historic - do not allow very good sound proofing but that is a small price to pay for the atmosphere. The staff was attentive...

We stayed here previously and decided to come back. The building is spectacular and was all lit up for their February celebration. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. They have several restaurant options and many others within walking distance. The only issue was their valet parking. They were way under staffed and it took close to 20 minutes to...

Spent Xmas, they supplied the tree in the suite, two rollaway beds. Walked around inside and it was beautiful. In the morning they delivered the news paper. Great experience. Service was no. 1. We took xmas family pictures on the 4th floor where the xmas manniqins were. Will return definitely.

If you expect 'any' consideration from this hotel for a special occasion, think again. Their website is not just misleading, but patently false advertising. Virtually every 'detail' that goes into 'service' was substandard - or actually non-existent. My wife booked two nights for my birthday recently, noting the occasion on the reservation form: no mention at check-in by the desk...

The Italian restaurant attached to the Hotel where we had lunch was very good. I recommend this restaurant. The town of Riverside is just not a place one might go out of your way to visit - there is very little to offer for a tourist so any hotel in town must make themselves a Destination Hotel. Some of this...

Most people know about Mission Inn decorating for Christmas but this year they have valentines red hearts and lights that are worth the walk. Less decorations inside but a photo wall is set up with flowers.

Although I stayed in a room that was relatively small, it was well appointed, other than the "dated" bathroom. If the hotel wants to go to another level, they need to upgrade their feel and look in an area that needs some attention. A plus side would be the KELLY'S SPA products, which are wonderful, from the body lotion to...

Will never stay at this property again. Lady at the front desk checked me in under another guests name, had to wait a ridiculous amount of time for my room to be ready, and then never ended up getting my original room I booked. Got moved to another room that was right next to the street with a street fair...

Through TripAdvisor we were able to have a room for Saturday night. The hotel is a walk back in time with all its history from the last century. The rooms are large and spacious and the staff is professional and friendly. Many restaurants available in the inn. The gardens are spectacular and well maintained. This is a special occasion destination...

I was so excited to stay here. Especially during the Festival of Lights. I've read great reviews and had high expectations. Unfortunate our entire stay was dismal and disappointing. First mess up was when actually booked the room. I had booked a room with a discount code that approved us for a credit to the hotel restaurant bakery. When I...
