Beautiful historic hotel. My room(#149) was clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. This hotel has incredible architecture. Antiques at every turn. History that starts in the 19th century. Fun to explore. Staff are friendly and professional. The restaurants are great. Excellent destination hotel.

Luxury and history in the heart of Riverside
Reviewed 5 days ago

I've been lucky enough to stay at the Mission Inn on two occasions while attending conferences at the convention center in Riverside, and I must say that it's got to be the best conference hotel there is! All of the staff I've encountered (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant) have been friendly and helpful - the front desk staff even saved me from my own mistake of forgetting to reduce the number of days on my most recent booking!

The rooms I've stayed in have always been very clean and comfortable, with everything I need. Depending on where a room is located, there is the chance you'll hear some neighborhood/road noise, especially on a weekend night, but otherwise I've found the rooms to be quiet. The A/C system can be a bit loud when the fan is running, though.

The size/shape of the pool means it can be used to swim laps, if you're so inclined (get there when it opens in the AM, and you'll likely have it to yourself). As for the fitness center, as others have mentioned it is very small and pretty disappointing for a hotel of this size/caliber. During my most recent visit, a few of the machines wouldn't turn on - given that there are only six or seven, total, that's a big issue!

If you have the chance, I highly recommend taking the guided tour of the hotel, to learn all about its history and see a few behind-the-scenes areas.

Italy or Mexico minus the airfare
Reviewed 1 week ago

We honestly felt like we were in old Mexico or Italy without flying there!
Such a piece of California history beginning in the early 1900's and the center of early orange groves and an amazing evolution of agriculture in Southern Calif.
We booked just one night and after trying to take it all in, incredible food, the architecture, the spa and the great staff from the front desk to every moment of breakfast in bed, exploring the property ( which we are going to return because we couldn't see everything even though we extended our stay another night!) A special note about the amazing bed linens and robes! ( I bought one for my wife at the gift shop!)
If you don't have time to travel to Italy, stay at the Mission Inn and save the airfare!
Thank you all at Mission Inn for maintaining a great piece of history!

At breakfast the staff was so amazing. They were 20 minutes before shutting down but never made us feel rushed. The food was very good and the setting was above average for a breakfast area. It is near the private airport and lots of shopping.

I could do this for a week

No failure here. Great all-around experience.
Had heard good stories about this place from my dad (Army assignment at nearby March Field) and my mom who was dating him in the early 1940's.
Handicap room and bathroom were not fancy but spacious and comfortable. It was 104 degrees on arrival but the room was cool and had a responsive thermostat. The food offered in the many restaurants was very good and not overly expensive considering the surroundings, service etc. Valet parking and check-in quick and easy. look forward to a future visit
