"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
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.

"52nd Anniversary Celebration"

"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
"A destination by itself"
we enjoyed all the modern comforts in this grand historical inn . The on site restaurants had wonderfully good food and service .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I just had our wedding at the Mission Inn. We had our ceremony in the St . Francis Chapel, our reception in the Santa Barbara hall including the Oriental patio. Some of our guests stayed 3 days in Mission Inn. We received amazing complements from every single person! This was the BEST experience and would recommend this high class hotel […] to anyone, we were 150% satisfied with everything :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was amazing!!! Its a hidden Jewel in Riverside!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would stay there again"
Our room was fantastic!!! It was kind of annoying that our first morning waking up there, they were doing construction at 8:30 am on the floor above us. Every time I tried to call the front desk, they put me on hold and seemed like they forgot about me. I ended up just walking down to the front desk. The in-room dining was amazing!!! Highly recommend […] the Eggs Benedict and the Quesadilla with steak! Besides the construction and the wait on the phone, which are not that big, we had a very splendid experience! Would highly reccomend to anyone! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great but noisy"
This is an elegant hotel and the hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was spotless and very comfortable. I would have rated it a 5 on every category if it hadn't been for the noise at night. There was a street musician playing his trumpet in the courtyard right outside our window. I expect peace and quiet at night when I'm traveling. […] Having driven hundreds of miles that day, a good night's sleep was essential. We ended up cancelling our second night there.

"Who knew that Riverside is awesome?!"
Maybe it's because I'm a presidential history buff, maybe it's because I love mahogany furniture, or maybe it's just because I'd colored my memory of Riverside, but this place is awesome! Couldn't ask for a greater location- central to the convention center where I'd had business and right next to a pedestrian promenade with cute shops and delicious […] restaurants (and the greatest sandwich place ever). But stepping inside the hotel is the closest I've come to being back in my hometown of Washington DC. President Taft's chair, tributes to the Reagans who honeymooned there and the Nixons who even wed there, presidential portraits, and a tiled presidential seal. Then step outside and have an entire conversation with the macaws! (Granted, it's going to be a boring conversation, rich with the macaw telling you "hello" and "stop it"). I got plenty of work done with their free wifi before heading out to check out the history of the California Mission just across the street. Enjoy a refreshment by the stunning pool laced with palm trees, and splurge on one of huge best dinners you'll even have at their steakhouse. I can't believe that this five-star service and accommodation goes for under $200 a night. What a steal!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dissatisfied non smoker"
The hotel entrance, very cute and unsuspected. Receptionist, fast and courteous. The hall out of the elevator and leading to our room, stunk like cigar odor. Our room had a nice view of the swimming pool, but when I tried to take a bath, water did not come out of the shower head and I kept trying thinking I was doing something wrong. Finally I asked […] my husband to call for service but he decided to give it a try. After a while , he turned the shower head and was able to make it work. I don't know how the person who clean the bathroom was able to do it without water. I love history and antiques, and staying in The mission was an experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved everything about this hotel and plan to return. The only suggestion I would make is better lighting in the hallways at night. It was a little too dim for comfort when I was looking for my room alone at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A must See sort of place."
Aside from being a historical gem, this place was reminiscent of something out if a storybook. As you walk through the winding staircase or wonder down author's row, it's inevitable to feel as if a secret passage might await just around the corner. Best of all our children had a blast swimming in the salt water pool, while my partner and I felt inspired […] by the history and romance. Did I say the brunch buffet is to die for? Very affordable if you take advantage of their deals. Definitely stay at least once. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mission Inn is Fabulous!"
My husband & I went here for our anniversary weekend. It was the most beautiful, breath-taking hotel we've ever stayed at! We spent an hour just exploring the grounds! The restaurants, spa, bars, lounge, pool & overall experience make this place a 10! The surrounding neighborhood isn't as great but you could just stay at the hotel & have a wonderful […] weekend! We did venture out & found some great bars & live music a few blocks away. I loved this place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice but problematic"
was nice but crowded from tourists or area people using free wif iBars noisy and again, tourists not guests seemed to be at the tables. Hotel staff not up to the job. Lost items or credit cards not returned. No call to owner. No help, just Im sorry. I am not happy with the front desk mainly. Contacted management but nothing back. Im not a complainer […] but really lousy experience when dealing with staff. Also room was placed next to AC unit. Really loud. So maybe I was just unlucky. A Guy left his phone at valet. They did not even ask front desk for alternate number or name. Just ignored. Left it on desk top. Did not care to even try to get name from guest services. Was a customer. How hard could it be. I called front desk from valet station, another opportunity to tell me I left my card. Lost on them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Four Star Hotel but not all Four Star Rooms"
This is listed as a historical hotel. It boasts beautiful and varied architecture while keeping a wonderful mission look and feel. There is a spacious lobby with wonderful sitting areas. The rooms are spacious and include a flat screen tv and a tub large enough to soak in. There are even nice robes included (though we didn't really need or use but nonetheless […] a nice touch). There is a large pool but the hotel itself is the star here. The hotel is rich in history and is almost a mini museum with beautiful items from Europe and Asia all throughout the hotel. There is a tour of the hotel for $13 and you may wonder, a fee to walk through your hotel ? - yes indeed but it was worth it as docents provide the colorful history, especially if you get an opportunity to see the chapel. It is beautiful and has six large Tiffany stained glass windows. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel has several nice restaurants and opens to Riverside Main Street which is converted to a pedestrian walkway and has several restaurants, coffee shops, etc., as well. The location is excellent, close to both the Riverside Museum and the Riverside Art Museum. Valet Parking is $20 with in and out privileges for hotel guests. There is a charge for internet. The grounds are nicely groomed. Now the negative - the hotel is historical and as such the modern niceties such as double pane windows and modern sound proofing were not evident at least in the more economical rooms. Sound from the street was moderate and noise from other rooms above or adjacent was noticeable. If you happen to get a first floor room where the restaurant sets up in the morning or cleans up at night, you may hear the noise including talking (clearly). And as restaurants go, they usually set up early and clean-up late. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was terrific except the air conditioning vents blew across the room right onto the bed. They need to locate the bed under the vents to avoid direct air. Several nights in this situation would have resulted in a sinus infection. Other than that, it is a lovely hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautful hotel, but no free in-room Internet"
I only stayed for one night, so I wasn't able to take advantage of all of the amenities. The Front Desk people were very pleasant and efficient. The room was very nice. It's what you would expect of an old, classic hotel, such as the Mission inn. My only complaint would be that they charge you for in-room Internet. In this day and age, complimentary […] Internet should be a given. I was in the Riverside area on business, and decided to "splurge" for a stay at the Mission Inn, knowing how beautiful it is, and thinking it would nice to relax after a long day's work. But when I return on business, I will probably stay at another hotel for this reason. For me, it's crucial to have Internet in my room. I don't want to have to lug my laptop, etc. to business area or to a public area in order to get free Internet. Mission Inn, you are a beautiful, historical hotel, but you might want to think about this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A treat to early California architecture!!"
Our room was spacious, very well maintained, very very comfortable bed, fresh nice linens and stylish furnishings.

"Visting parents in Hospice situation"
The Hotel is beautiful, although the front desk clerk wasnt very helpful. Your Conceirge was wonderful, she has a great attitude, so happy and cheerful and so helpful. She saved my day, I was waiting for a fax from my insurance company and she tracted it down right away and saved my day. The front desk clerk just kept saying its in another department […] and she wouldnt even call that department for me. I thought she was rude and unprofessional.
