What a change of pace! The place is beautiful and so fun to explore! The property is gorgeous and so historical. I love that it's a refreshing change to all the modern, plain hotels we normally stay in. Nothing quite compares to this except maybe The Biltmore in Santa Barbara. I'm coming back with no kids next time. There's not...

My husband and I spent one night here after leaving Los Angeles heading for Las Vegas. The place is absolutely stunning! We had so much fun exploring the grounds and reading the history of the hotel. We really needed more than one night to fully enjoy everything the hotel has to offer as we were not able to visit the...

When we were in the LA area, my husband said we had to drive and stay a night at the Mission Inn and Spa. It was absolutely gorgeous inside and out. One of the most comfortable hotels we have ever stayed in the mainland USA>

Beautiful and unique place. Friendly helpful staff. Great pool, towels included, salt pool was best we have tried, and weather cooperative with sun in March. Close to hike up Mt Rubidoux. We enjoyed walks in neighbourhood. Farmer's Market nearby as well. Busy with many guests in lobby and gardens. Would have liked WiFi included in room for the price!

My wife and I have stayed at the Mission Inn a dozen or more times in the last 10 years, and it's easily the most luxurious, sprawling, resplendent getaway to be had in Southern California. Whenever we introduce friends to the Mission Inn, they simply can't believe what they're seeing. The view from the Spanish courtyard compares favorably with anything...

The history and ambiance here make it a "must see" experience. Pricey, but the staff and accommodations make it worth the money, especially if you are using this as more than a place to grab some Zzzz's.

This was a beautiful hotel, with much attention to detail. The staff were all wonderful. The on-site restaurants had terrific food and were not overpriced. The meeting rooms here were gorgeous and the catered food was also fantastic. Thank you for a great stay!

The property is beautiful and historical. It is ideally located next to the center of old towne Riverside and easy walking distance to museums and other social venues. We had a standard room that was spacious and comfortable. The decor is vintage so don't expect upscale furnishings. The spa was nice, however it rained while we were there so they...
