I attended the bridal expo the Mission Inn hosted today. I was able to view all the different venues for holding receptions, guest rooms, and the grounds. The entire place is beautiful. I'd say it's the perfect location for small more intimate weddings. It is also a great place for couples to come. The area the Inn is located is...

For years we have heard of the Holiday time lights at the Mission Inn and Spa. We never found the time to go, even for an evening. This year we went, stayed a night at the Inn and enjoyed the holiday experience. The hotel is magnificent with a lot of associated history. The deep wood paneling is in contrast to...

What a beautiful property & great experience. My co-workers who were staying at the Marriott wound up visiting me at the Mission Inn every evening. They happened to be changing from holiday lights to spring flowers during my stay. The staff was great, the restaurants & bars were fun -- next time I want to stay when the weather is...

Although present day Riverside is a bustling hub of the Inland Empire, there is an older more stately town with history going back to California's roots. The Mission Inn is one of my favorite buildings in the country. The architecture is magnificent and the upkeep is excellent. It is historic so you may find modern considerations like parking and noise...

I've stayed here twice and enjoyed my stay both times. The place has something like 240 rooms and is a lot of fun just to explore. Pros: Beautiful building Historic - numerous presidents have stayed there and they have a tour you can take Multiple onsite restaurants (bar, Mexican restaurant and buffet in courtyard) Heated outdoor pool Small, but decent...

The historic Mission Inn truly gets into the Christmas spirit with grand decorations throughout and millions of twinkling lights throughout the grounds. A short while after we arrived we went on a docent led tour of The Mission Inn and its grounds. Learning the history of how The Mission Inn came to be and about the intriguing family dynamic behind...

I booked a two-night getaway with my husband at this beautiful property, thinking the combination of old-charm elegance and great restaurants would result in a delightful stay. Towels, toiletries and general ambience were elegant. Unfortunately, the rooms are more beautiful than comfortable, as the furnishings left us with only a wrought iron desk chair or the bed for seating. The...

My daughter and I stayed at the Mission Inn in December, when this landmark hotel is decorated in millions of lights!

We arrived at 4:30 and it was one hour before our room was ready. It was 1:15 minutes before our luggage arrived. Our room was labeled "The President's Suite". It had a sitting area and a bedroom on the second floor. The bathroom was on the lower floor with narrow and curved stairs coming down. We arrived at Duane's for...
