Gorgeous, historical hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

Anytime I need to stay in Riverside, this is where I stay. I grew up in this town so staying here always feels like home. If you are looking for a new and modern hotel, then keep looking. This isn't it. This hotel is historic and the architecture is beautiful. The rooms do have some modern amenities. But I love the old world charm of this place.

Valet and check in was easy. Customer service at the front desk was great. I found the beds comfortable. Eat at any of the restaurants, you won't be disappointed. Even the room service food is delicious!

Here's the only con: It's not a real quiet hotel. They have a lot of events and weddings here. We had to ask to switch rooms because the people in the room right next door to us was an entire wedding party and they were really partying it up. I don't blame them, they were getting married, I remember what that was like. I didn't want to ruin their fun, I just didn't want to be next to it. The front desk graciously understood and brought us up a new key to a new room further away. Easy peasy.

I'll stay here again and again.

Festival of Light Fabulous even in the rain

We went to see the Festival of Lights. It happened to rain both days we were there.
The lights were still spectacular. The Mission Inn does not spare anything. Because we stayed in the Hotel we got to see all of the inside decorations too. It was beautiful.

Magical Mission
Reviewed 1 week ago

What a delight to stay at the Mission Inn during the Festival of Lights. Our room was beautiful overlooking the pool with colors of lights reflecting off of the water. We found the staff friendly and very accommodating even though it was so busy. Reservations had been made months ago for a room with 2 queen beds, a view and quiet. That is what we got and we were pleased. Yes, it's crowded, the staff is no doubt overwhelmed and overworked but how could it not be! People come from all over the world to experience this
Christmas in California event. Finding the entrance to the Inn is not easy but there are people offering directions. Paid parking is available for hotel guests and wifi is not free but for us the ambiance was well worth the price. The spa was great and offered a variety of health conscious drinks. They also offered excellent champagne, fresh fruits, gingerbread and chocolates. Book well in advance because many people make the visit to the Mission an annual event. We had a quick snack at one of the restaurants so, I cannot give a fair critique of the dining experience. We have already decided this will be an annual event for us - the decorating of the Mission in Riverside is special especially for non-Californians.

Don’t stay in room 149
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My husband and I stayed here this last weekend. We were given room 149 and it is located directly above the large trash bin and so from 12:30am to 4:30am their staff dumps the trash every hour. So you get to hear the bottles and trash being dumped and then the guy popping the plastic trash bags open. When we mentioned it at check out. We were asked if we called the desk. In the middle of the night? And we kept hoping it was only going to be once not 4 times! It was ridiculous
The other strange thing about this room is there is a window in the shower covered by a skimpy curtain that doesn’t cover the bottom 2 inches. Not to mention you can hear everything in the next rooms. Not a good stay.
