Room, amenities, restaurants, staff and hotel all were wonderful. Enjoyed reading about the history of the hotel and the past Presidents that had visited and honeymooned there. Patio dining at Mexican restaurant was good…a little overpriced for basic Mexican food but great ambiance, lovely staff, and certainly conveniently located. We want to try the Italian restaurant next time. Do not...

I'd wanted to stay at the Mission Inn for many years and finally did. It did not disappoint. Lovely Spanish-style hotel in downtown Riverside (where there is not much to do). Great service. We went mid-week so it was not too crowded. They upgraded our room. Valet parking was easy and they give you bottled water. A few drawbacks however....

It is next to impossible to tell people how beautiful this place is, and the staff and the service is wonderful. We so look forward to returning soon. A must see for the Holidays. The historical features are a true treasuer.

We stayed at the Mission Inn with our 9 year old granddaughter who was competing in a soccer tournament in Riverside. We loved our room, the pool, the Mexican restaurant, the service, the history and just looking around. The room was quiet and we felt we got our money's worth.

This is a superbly appointed historic hotel with an exceptional staff and great amenities throughout. Well worth a visit if you journey takes you to Riverside. Book in advance though...especially for busier times of the year!

This is a cool old hotel. The main, front section of the hotel is interesting, but get on the elevator, go to the 4th floor, and walk around. It was made in many, many different sections, sort of like you might find in Italy. Just extremely cool. Not for folks who dislike open heights. It's not our usual style, but...

This Hotel is absolutely beautiful. I love the nostalgic feel. I enjoyed my view and the food from Duane's is divine!! I am definitely going back. The bed is comfortable. Everything is in walking distance.

When it comes to service and beauty, this hotel is up there with the best. This hotel itself is worth the drive, if you live in SoCal. Location: downtown Riverside. Many walkable bars, restaurants, and shopping. Parking: $20 valet with in/out privileges, or you can try to park nearby. Personally, I would park with the hotel and rest assured your...

My family visited the Mission Inn over Christmas, and the Christmas Festival of Lights is fantastic. More importantly, the hotel, the staff, and the food were first rate at all times, even with literally thousands of visitors in the lobby and on the grounds. The staff could not have been more helpful at all times and they stayed in good...
