Our family has stayed numerous times at the Mission Inn. We love the historical significance so much so, that this time around we paid for a guided tour of the Inn. However, during previous experiences, we have been kept awake late into the night due to noise either within the Inn, or from outside. Therefore, when I called to make... More

Built in the Spanish style it takes up a city block. It's so well renovated it's hard to believe it's over a hundred years old. So many Presidents and famous weddings have been there. My family all enjoyed their dinners. We saw three wedding receptions while we were there on a Thursday. Truly beautiful.

We booked a spacious room on a travel site and had a 2nd floor room with a huge bay window overlooking the Pool area below. The service was exceptional - including: Valet Parking, front desk, room service, the restaurants, bar area, and swimming pool. This is an elegant old hotel (actually on the National Register of Historic Places) which has... More

The Mission Inn was built in the late 1800s with additions since then. Beautiful old California architecture with many courtyards, stairways, and historic objects to enjoy. Be sure to visit the fourth floor where the halls are outside and the rooms have old castle style doors and turrets, a clock tower, and quiet courtyards. The downside: check in is slow,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights due to his work.

This hotel is beautiful beyond question. The staff is top notch and never stuffy or rude. This most recent stay was a surprise to my husband and I was able to get a deal by calling the hotel.

The hotel itself is old. The elevators are small. The rooms aren't the five star quality BUT they were clean, the staff was kind and helpful, and the ambiance you get in return is a trade-off for the lack of modern luxuries. My biggest Praise of this hotel is the staff, They were great. When we checked out and took... More

Wow. What a beautiful building. We loved adventuring throughout the hotel and grounds. Our Rain Cross room was fabulous. The room needs a tad update on device power options, but this no way outweighs all the positives. We already are planning a return, maybe for for the festival of lights.
