Usually stay here 3-4 times per year but this last stay was not fun. While getting ready to check out our smoke detector sounded and of course I thought it was for entire hotel but when I walked into hallway, it was apparent that it was just our room 103. I called and the

I found that the rooms left much to be desired, although the employees were fantastic. Very overpriced and I guess I would say that I would stay somewhere else next time because all the rooms are different and some of them, for the price, just aren't worth it, at all.

I am local. I have been going to the Mission Inn Festival of Lights for 20 years. I have visted the Mission Inn many times during other seasons. I have dined at the restaurants and been in the bars. I recently spoke to someone working seasonal for their first year who told me I will not be allowed in the lobby during Festival of Lights to walk through and see the decoractions even if I go in the early afternoon on a weekday as I usually do. Management only please respond. I won't go if I can't go in. Not dining.

"Higher floors have better views."
"overlooking the pool is fantastic"
"Rooms facing the street are larger rooms and have balconies. Those facing the courtyards can see many lights."
