Overall I really liked this place, obviously a hotel with a unique style and history that is very interesting. The room I stayed in was large and comfortable, and very unique in style and appointments. Very nice. A few minor things caused me to downgrade the rating slightly from 5 to 4. After I checked in and was in the... More

This property is just cool to visit. There are several restaurants on site with bars and lots of things to see. Around Christmas the place is lit up with a million lights and it looks awesome at night. The staff is great and there is parking nearby, either valet or self park. My wife and I enjoyed a one night... More

I've been staying at the MI off and on over the past 4 years. Rarely does it disappoint. Most of the staff are professional and friendly. Its always an adventure and enjoyable experience. The hotel maintains its world class appeal but doesn't lose site of the common touch.

Decided to surprise the wife for an evening at the historic Mission Inn and dinner at their prime steakhouse. It was just after Christmas and their displays of holiday lights and decorations was beautiful. The room we selected was not the base, but was somewhere in the middle. We weren't pleased with the room as we were expecting a balcony,... More

This is one of the few times I can truly say everything was perfect! The property is beautiful, the bar was friendly, the restaurants were amazing and the staff was excellent! Well done! I did use their valet service and they were wonderful and accommodating. They took great care with a high-end vehicle I had. My dinner at Duane’s was... More

This place was awesome. Upon entrance, I felt like I was in San Diego mission district. It was so darned relaxing! My room - beautifully appointed and comfortable - overlooked the pool which was beautifully lit up at night. Room service was prompt. The robe was the best hotel robe I've ever had! Felt like slipping into velvet! My only... More

A high quality, good service hotel with a lot of personality and a unique atmosphere. Very impressive Christmas décorations. The place was just beautiful. I stayed there for business but this would also be a great weekend get-away.

We visited during the festival of lights, the entire property is covered with twinkle lights and is beyond festive, from the front all the way to the pool area. We had dinner at the Riverside Inn Restaurant and the meal was wonderful. This is a must see historical landmark.

There are certain properties of such iconic status that if you can stay in them, you must. The Mission Inn is one of those. Over a century old, and in the heart of Riverside, this is a stunningly beautiful property with excellent restaurants, a mandatory bar experience in the President, and wonderful grounds. Negatives? Parts of the property need a... More

This hotel was the dalliance of an early California businessman who got lucky with a location that ended up being ground zero for the growing citrus trade in California. It's eclectic and architecturally diverse...with different parts influenced by different regions, but it feels disjointed. The carpets are worn and checkin staff peremptory.
