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.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 August 2016

My Girlfriend surprised me with a day/evening at the "Mission Inn", Riverside, CA. for my birthday. This historic hotel with several dining facilities is a true gem in the Inland Empire of Southern California. From check-in to check-out, the entire staff was extremely friendly and available at a moments notice. Rooms are immaculate and extremely comfortable. Dining varies from snacks... More

Stayed for a work conference. The place was beautiful-they were just getting the lights up for Xmas. But upon check in they wouldn't accept the check I got from my employer as payment (which has never been a problem at other hotels I have stayed at for conferences) it was a huge hassel and I found no one particularly helpful....

My wife has lived within a few miles of the Mission Inn since the age of two. We have visited most every year on the day after Thanksgiving for the Festival of Trees Celebration and official lighting of the Christmas lights on the Mission Inn, but we have never stayed there as a hotel guest. We had to vacate our... More

Everyone was wonderful. The room was comfortable. The decorations going up for the holidays were beautiful. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. I want to return for our anniversary next year.

While we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Mission Inn, we expected a lot more from the lodgings and staff considering the prestigious reputation the hotel holds. Aside from the complaints listed below, we sincerely thank Ingrid Morgan for her assistance in booking our room. First, the room we stayed in for our first night was extremely small and noisy...

More crowded then we expected but that was due to the festival of lights. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We came in early and the front desk was accommodating by letting us take a room 2 hours before check in. That room was on the first floor and next to a banquet room. My wife asked for a... More

We have been going to the mission inn for the last number of years on the day after thanksgiving. We usually drive 1.5 hours and have drinks, walk around and have dinner. We will likely not go back.
