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...

The hotel is amazing. What a great experience. A proper tea...ok, my idea of a proper tea. With all the goodies and Champagne too! Service was absolutely first-rate. It was so much fun to walk off those goodies and look at all the Christmas decorations. The music, lights and entertainment was excellent. It was the best Christmas lighting display I...

Pros: Hotel property was absolutely beautiful. Staff and housekeeping were excellent. Cons: The sheer curtain hem in our room window was coming apart. The bedroom looked a little worn. Hallway was very dark - our room was also very dark - we faced the courtyard and was on the first floor - maybe that was part of the problem. The...

Let me say, at first I was upset that I had to wait over an hour past the 4pm check-in, but once I entered the room, it was well worth the wait. I had one of the suites, and it was nice. Although there was a bit more street noise than I like, the room and the beautifully decorated building...

One of the most beautiful place to have your wedding venue. Excellent service beyond my expectation. Their Coordinators were very knowledgeable and super helpful . All the employees were so courteous. Room was very clean and we love their bed and pillows, so comfortable. Location was very convenience from 91 FWY.

I just Love, Love, Love this place. I had up to 8 rooms for up to 7 nights. Everything from the room to housekeeping to valet parking to room service to bell captains and front desk staff was outstanding. The restaurants were exceptional.

We stayed at the Mission Inn hotel during the holidays for one night and we had a great time. Great holiday atmosphere both inside and outside the hotel in the surrounding neighborhood. We had a very nice quiet room facing the interior of the hotel on second floor. The food was great. We tried both the dinner and breakfast at...

Wonderful service all around, even in the midst of the Festival of Lights crowd. The Mission Inn goes out of its way to accommodate it guests. My daughters and I had massages and spa services at Kellys Spa. The experience was top notch and we will be doing this at least annually.

A wonderful experience. We only spent one night but it was worth every penny ! The history and architecture of The Mission Inn is very interesting. We had a lovely, large room, and experienced the most helpful, knowledgeable, courteous employees at every spot in the hotel plus the Christmas lights are unbelievable. Yes, 4 million lights decorate The Mission Inn,...
