Temecula, California
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We buckled up in the 45' RV and drove from Temecula with 11 of us in tow. Never had seen the light festival before and I must say it was the best attraction of the season so far. Crowds were horrendous, parking on Sat. nite was nearly impossible. Highly recommended

We were fortunate enough to be able to visit during the Lights festival. Each of our rooms had fabulous views of the lights and displays. The hotel is tastefully furnished and decorated from the lobby and restaurants to the rooms. All rooms are different, so I will experience another one next year! The Bello restaurant was excellent as our server...

The Mission Inn is absolutely breathtaking. I posted pictures and completely fooled my friends for being in Spain! The staff was super friendly and striked short and sweet conversations with us. Our room was on the third floor and it gave an amazing view of the pool. The room was very spacious, had a couch, surprisingly no fridge or microwave...

This is the 4th year in a row that a group of friends have spent one night at the Mission Inn to enjoy their fabulous Christmas displays. Well maintained rooms, great food in their restaurants, and surrounded by a Riverside outdoors Holiday venue.

Three days at the mission Inn have been our family's tradition for the last 10 years. I should mention that we have a rather large family and typically reserve eight rooms three of which are usually suites. The facilities are lovely and since we go in December the lights are incredibly beautiful.The service has been frankly mostly marginal. Over the...

This is our second trip to see the beautiful Christmas light display. We enjoy our visits to the Mission Inn for a number of reasons. The staff is uniformly helpful, friendly and efficient. We had a little problem with our A/C and there was a Tech. in-room within minutes to alleviate the problem. The ambiance throughout the property is enchanting...

I wish I had someone to share this with, it was so colorful and magical. Unfortunately I was there on business. Staff friendly. Loved the room service, bell hops, and the decor so dressed up for the holiday.

My husband and I had a wonderful first time at the Mission Inn. Our room was so quaint and comfortable and had a beautiful view of the courtyard. Being there for the Festival of Lights was magical. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant to talk with. Food was exceptional. I highly recommend staying at this lovely inn.

I stayed here three nights for work. It is the Festival of Lights, so very busy, Christmas decor everywhere. Love the tortilla soup and enjoyed eating outside in the Mexican restaurant. Robes in the rooms were soft and luxurious. Staff were welcoming. I got a special rate due to work, so price was great for the quality of room.
