"Worth the $$$"
This is a very nice hotel. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. It is worthy the $$.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My bill was lower than what I paid!"
I stayed at the hotel with my Mom and we loved the location and general splendor of the holiday decor and we had drinks and food at 3 of the restaurants. I was a little put off when the bill that was slipped under my door was $79 less than what I paid. When I inquired about it, the lady said the price was whatever I paid through Expedia and that it […] was wrong. I thought I was getting the rock bottom rate through Expedia. I would have rather had the room rate of $109 instead of the $159 I paid. For the future, guests should not see a bill that is not correct. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Mission Inn Stay"
Memorable. Beautiful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my 5th stay at the Mission Inn. I have always had a wonderful experience at this hotel. I highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lots of charm and some of the negatives of an older hotel (small bathroom, etc.) Also there was a lot of outside noise (not the hotel's fault).Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Historic Mission Inn in Riverside"
The Mission Inn is so unique! I can't even describe it to my friends because you have to see it in person.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cool building but not worth the $"
the room was fine, bathroom was dirty and mold in the grout. The handle to turn on the shower was gross. Mold inside of the handle that you could plainly see. i untucked my sheets and a couple of the corners were downright wet. top it off with really bad food in Duane's. A wine list that looks like they shopped at safeway, cvs and costco. way over priced […] and a manager that was not very genuine. I don't write many reviews as after 100+ nights in hotels it would take too much time. The majority of my stays are quite good this one takes that cake as the most overpriced/quality ratio. The restaurant was the tipping point to write a review. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ring out those Mission Bells"
I love this hotel the way I would love a school friend of 80 years. It was our childhood dream palace when I was a school kid, born in 1927, and it remains my fantasy of what a hotel should be, and in this case…..is. Lucky Riverside to have it right in the middle of downtown reality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Historic Hotel"

"No reason to leave the hotel"
There isn't much going on in Riverside, but this place is amazing. My girlfriend and I had brunch, drinks at the pool and dinner in the courtyard. The food was all really good, especially the brunch. Make sure you take some time and wander around. The place is like a big maze.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed for one night for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful. I will definitely go back for a whole weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible service. Late check in."
The hotel is historic and wonderful. The staff and service dismal. We got there at check in time at 4pm and had to wait 45 minutes for a room. The staff did not explain the delay or appologise. I complained to the manager and he was very rude to me.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Couples Retreat but not good for a Church Group."
Nice Hotel if you like Drinking partying and seeing people in all manner of dress. 10 wedding a day on Saturday and all the drinking and lack of respect the world has come to understand from today's idea of a wedding. It is the union of one man and one woman under God. (Yes I believe that) It is not an excuse to see how little of clothes you can wear […] and how many people you can impress. The place quieted down about 4am in the morning, but at 6am everything else started up and for a couple retreat it was not a get away. I am glad I had ear plugs, but with the trains, trash trucks and everything else the single pane uninsulated windows did not help make the stay enjoyable. The Staff was great and the bed was very comfortable. Food is to expensive and we will not be back to this hotel for an overnight stay on the weekend. You like the be like the world this is your place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What's not to like about old town Riverside?"
Classic older hotel that has style and substance. Employees in all areas are super. Lots to see and enjoy there and in the neighborhood. This is a high-maintenance hotel, but they do a pretty good job keeping up with things. Be sure to stay there of the Festival of Lights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We arrived at the hotel @ noon. We wanted to relax by the pool and just store our luggage till check in. However, the hotel got us into a room right away. Very surprised and happy about this. Also, he upgraded our room because it was my birthday. Awesome Job. ThanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great neighborhood for walking around. Best steakhouse in the area. There was a wedding in the hotel during our stay & the walls aren't very thick in the old side of the hotel so we listened to the reception till 1 am or later. But overall a pleasant stay. We will go back for the steak house aloneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is rich in history and is very well maintained. the rooms are unique and full of character. My only complaint was that in the morning I could hear the maids knocking on doors and chatting away while I was trying to sleep in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The bellhop lost our two bags - we waited several hours until they did finally recover them. Other than that, the stay was nice. The rooms were clean, the view we had of the courtyard was LOVELY to wake up to. It really is an escape. Very pleased and would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great relaxing weekend getaway spot. Romantic and quite. The spa is also amazing. Great service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Attending a wedding"
From valet parking to the wedding, all was very lovely. The room was very large and comfortable. The restaurants are very good. The building and grounds are gorgeous. You may book a tour of the hotel at the Mission Inn Museum and it is a must to really appreciate the facility. The St. Francis of Assisi chapel is gorgeous and is a nice place for a w […] edding.

Overall stay very memorable. Overpriced on everything, and just silly( $9.00 for wifi). Steakhouse food best I ever had!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Upper management issues"
Every fixture in our room was coming apart or coming off the wall. The door had no seal and was extremely loose in the frame. Once closed, you could still here the cleaning staff as though they were still in the room with you (while they were still cleaning and vacuuming at 5:40pm, even though check-in starts at 4.) Later, we came back from dinner to […] find, our bed had been made earlier in the day, with DAMP SHEETS. We had to get house keeping to come remake the bed with dry sheets at 10:30pm. Now the individual members of the staff could not have been nicer, but there knowledge level was very low (almost all questions answered with, "I'm not sure.") So I must conclude that upper management has put standers in place, which constrain the staff to doing a half-baked job on everything from maintenance, to house keeping, and above all SCHEDULING.

"Second time, a charm"
This was the second stay here. First was good; this was great. Rooms clean and comfortable both times. Some of the larger rooms are particularly nice. Staff very helpful. Hotel has some oldness to it, but that's part of its charm. Even though a high school football team, was staying on the hall, the rooms were quiet and restful. Nice live music in the […] restaurant. Would stay here anytime in Riverside. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful place to stay"
The mission hotel and spa was absolutely serene. The history that has been restored and maintained is second to none.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, historical hotel."
A must Stay. Explore this hotel, only 5 floors total but each has something to offer. So rich in architecture, art, and landscaping, I didn't even care that I didn't get a chance to see the beaches this visit. The pool area is beautiful and nice also.Great antique store across from hotel, nightlife is not abundant but fox theater is around the corner. […] Will Definitely go back. Already making plans. Loved this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ridiculous telephone prices"
Nice and historic hotel to stay at, however their pricing is completely nutty. A 5 minute telephone call set me back $9 and in room dining breakfast goes for $12. Go figure. The back street of the hotel smells of raw sewage and after eating at their 'fancy' Italian restaurant Trattoria, we almost threw up from the stench while walking back to our car […] in the parking lot behind the hotel. Having only two front desk workers handle telephone calls, check in and check out for over 300 rooms is untenable. Expect long lines. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Enjoyed our stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is fabulous, but it needs a little cosmetic touch up. The upholstered furniture and carpets all look worn and tired. Nothing wrong with the comfort, but a recover with fresh fabric would spruce the place up. We ate dinner in the wine bar and the big upholstered chairs had banged up legs and dirty upholstery. I it looked as if it hadn't been […] freshened since the 90 ' s. Same is true in other areas of the hotel. Other than that - great very well trained staff. Nice room. Comfortable bed. Good food.

"Almost 5 star but not quite."
The Mission Inn would be a better place if they provided toothbrushes, room slippers, free guest parking and complimentary tea in the room. Instead, they take a 'nickel and dime you to death' approach as their business model. Lovely buildings and architecture, but not quite a 5 star establishment as of yet. Cleaning services could do a better job as […] well. In our room, we found that the coffee maker hasn't been cleaned out from a pervious guests stay and was starting to grow mold inside of it. Yucky.

"52nd Anniversary Celebration"
We loved spending our anniversary in this historic hotel. The service was exemplary, the food was excellent (at all three of the hotel restaurants where we dined), and the tour of the hotel was an added bonus to highlight our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We will go back to the Mission Hotel!"
We really liked the Mission Hotel and we would recommend it to others. It was so pleasant, beautiful, and charming. This hotel reaches into the past with so many interesting things to see, with a charm and a distinct personality all is own. We loved it and will go back, as the service was exceptional, and everyone was great! Josephine and Napolean were […] stellar. The only draw back would be all of the ala carte charges like the one for a roll away bed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"attended high school proms there"
I stayed there for the first time, returning to Riverside for my high school reunion. The special price allowed me to stay there. I wish hotels would give advance information when there is a charge for parking. It's nice to know when planning a budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
