This hotel is amazing. It is gem in the middle of the Inland Empire. I would recommend this hotel to any couple wanting an unforgettable stay. Also, even if you do not spend the night, be sure to eat at the courtyard restaurant ... beautiful!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Expensive for the quality of the room, has a lot to offer on the premises, neighborhood has a lot of homeless people wandering around makes you wonder how safe your vehicle is, Parking 15 dollars per night, Valet is 20.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A wonderful respite"
Such a wonderful retreat back into history, but in luxury. This is the best place in the inland area to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool place in a not so cool spot!"
My husband and I stayed here for one night. Unfortunately it was Sunday so the only restaurants open were the Mission Inn Restaurant and the Mexican food restaurant. We ended up at the first one and it was really good! Walls of the rooms are paper thin but the hotel makes up for it with all the amazing architecture! Only downside is the surrounding […] areas are run down and a little sketchy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were kept up all night by sounds of train horns, people walking above us, and general noise. The valet parking was not always courteous. I would not recommend going to Riverside nor staying at this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was amazing! We went there for my birthday. My husband surprised me with a trip to the Mission Inn. If you want a 1st class experience this is the place for you. The prices are very reasonable and the place is just classy. Duane's Restaurant is has a great menu and a great atmosphere. It is a bit pricey but well worth it, I promise! The room was […] clean, smelled good, and inviting! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Unique, Historic and Quirky"
Unlike everyone else at the Mission Inn, I was there for business. The hotel has a lauded Christmas Light display every year that draws thousands of day-trippers and overnight families. So the atmosphere was something like a cross between Graceland and Disney World. To my relief, the display period ended my second day there. Beyond the throngs, the […] building is exquisite, steeped in history, and because of its unique background, every room seems to be somewhat different from the others. I got to see several because I requested a room change at 1 AM due to a crying infant in the next room. Clearly, that was not the fault of the hotel. The rooms are well-outfitted with great beds and 5-star bedclothes. But the towels in the bathroom are surprisingly thin and lacking in the elegance one might expect. The other issue is that the rooms completely lack sound-proofing. This is an issue because the beautifully tiled hallways and breezeways mean that laundry carts and suitcases make a racket on the floors that can be clearly heard within the rooms -- at all hours. Moreover, the lack of sufficient electrical outlets was puzzling in a high end hotel. The restaurants and service within them were both excellent, the choices plentiful and the building so gorgeous that it allows forgiveness of a lot. I would recommend this hotel to someone wanting a unique experience -- but if you are looking for the consistency and uniformity of a Marriott or a Hyatt, go elsewhere.

"Mission Inn Style"
This was the Mission Inn at it's best.If you can visit this beautiful hotel during the holidays you won't be disappointed. Lights, decorations, and glorious atmosphere during the holidays. The country's best light show according to Newsweek. Beautiful historic building that is not just a state historical monument but a national monument.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very beautiful and unique hotel. Amazing Christmas display. Parking is not included and expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic, Comfortable, Clean...I can't be mean"
This is a beautiful place to stay and I recommend it to anyone but, it is a bit pricey if you're just looking for a place to crash just for the night. I went for a couple getaway and for that reason it was perfect. There aren't many large restaurants near the area but some smaller cafes and such only (and fast food). The good thing, many nice larger […] restaurants are only a few exits away west on the 91 fwy off Tyler St. next to the mall. MY ONLY COMPLAINT: "I can't stand when hotels FORCE you to pay a vallet fee and you still have to tip the vallet guy if you don't want to feel like a cheapskate. Ugh" Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Visiting The Mission Inn"
This was my third stay at the Mission Inn. Excellent service and accommodations. Highly recommend a stay at the Inn especially if you're interested in history.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointing 2nd stay"
We stayed last year here and received a beautiful room this year not all that! I did not know the room number of last year and told the gal that it had bears on the balcony. She said since booked through Expedia she could not look up last year not helpful at all. We got stuck in a room next to non working ice machine. Every time we flushed toilet had […] to lift lid to reset to stop running, broken lamp, and we did not get the comfy robes in our room this year. Guy came up to look at ice machine and I asked about robes and he had someone come with them. Beds and pillow still wonderful, room not so much! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little slice od historic paradise..."
It was my very first time there but was worth every bit of my hard earned money. I usually would stay at the marriot or hyatt for about the same price range but the Mission Inn was well worth the upgrade and slightly higher rate. will absolutely stay again and recommend this hotel to everyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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

"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

"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
"Lovely lovely lovely!"
We loved our room overlooking the pool and courtyard. After nice dinner at Duane's we were greeted by a supremely comfortable bed in the nicely appointed room. We took the opportunity to explore the hotel and the nearby museum & plaza. It was a short walk to other points of interest.Genuine Expedia 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
After having our dream wedding, my wife thought we would stay our first night in our new home. To her surprise I took her to the Mission Inn, where we enjoyed a corner suite looking over the beautiful hotel & shopping areas. It was great.Genuine Expedia 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
