Great place to visit for dinner and drinks or for an overnight stay. Especially fun at Christmas time as the hotel is decorated with a million or so lights and animated figures. History galore. Charm galore. Be sure to visit the Chapel if its open. Great venue for a wedding.

My Girlfriend surprised me with a day/evening at the "Mission Inn", Riverside, CA. for my birthday. This historic hotel with several dining facilities is a true gem in the Inland Empire of Southern California. From check-in to check-out, the entire staff was extremely friendly and available at a moments notice. Rooms are immaculate and extremely comfortable. Dining varies from snacks...

This is a very unique property! Beautifully maintained, old world, bizarre, interesting and amazing all in one...I wish I knew the brand of bedding used! Those sheets were the best!! The restaurants are nice, but not the best. Drinks are pricey.

In town for a nearby wedding, we had a lovely 2-day stay at the Mission Inn. Check-in was friendly, the restaurants (food+service) were excellent, and the location was central to many shops and restaurants. My only suggestion would be that the rooms could use some updating. Ours was comfortable and clean, yet a bit on the rustic side. Overall, old-world...

Mission Inn is truly the crown jewel of the City of Riverside. I applaud the city for granting Mr. Duane Roberts (the current owner for the past 25 years) the necessary incentives for him to purchase and rehabilitate this historic landmark to its past glory. The building has retained all of its old Spanish architectural style. We live in Riverside...

We were told how amazing this place was for Christmas. The lights are amazing. The carriage ride around the hotel was so worth it, so fun with hot chocolate. From a purely architectural point of view, the hotel is intriguing and fun to walk around The problem is the rooms. They suck. Smell funny and bathrooms are like 100 years...

We stayed at the hotel for a night - booked a 2nd floor room with one queen bed and a sofa-bed. The room was relatively spacious. The ceiling was high and had white-painted, slatted wood characteristic of the historic nature of the property. The bathroom was well-appointed, with a tub and shower that had good pressure. We had no balcony...
