We visited the Mission Inn to see the Christmas lights and the long lines made this completely unenjoyable. When we got there the line was 1.5 hours to walk through to lobby. This event has been ruined by its own notoriety.

My Girlfriend surprised me with a day/evening at the "Mission Inn", Riverside, CA. for my birthday.

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 an amazing hotel! The restaurants are great! I stayed during the festival of lights and the hotel was beautifully decorated. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. This was by far the best experience I have ever had staying at a hotel.

My husband and I got married at The Mission Inn. We also stay there at least 3-4 times a year. The staff has always shown extreme courtesy and the utmost professionalism. The restaurants are equally as excellent. Our wedding there was absolutely unforgettable. Not one regret and worth every penny. The bartenders at the Presidential Lounge are super friendly and...

I put this review on Yelp. But wanted to share here as well to warn people from using this hotel for a special occasion. This November I was looking for a nice place to spend my wedding night. We decided on the mission in because it was half way between our wedding venue and the airport we were flying out...

We went to the Mission Inn to see their famous Christmas lights. This time we decided to spend one night at the Mission Inn so that we could see the lights from inside too. The hotel gave us a room on the second floor facing the front of the hotel and looking over the swimming pool. This room had an...

We booked months in advance so we could finally experience the wonderful lights display. We made sure to book one of the best rooms available, the Mission King so that we would be able to have a view from our room of the lights. When we arrived we were told we were facing all the lights and would have the...

We were considering going to see the Robo Lights display in Palm Springs again, supposedly one of the top 10 in the country. But we were advised that the Christmas lights at the Mission Inn were also very impressive and a lot more convenient. They were so right. While the Inns 4.5 million lights falls short of Robo Light's 8...

We loved every minute of our stay at the Mission Inn. The lights, the decorations, the room with our very own caroler on the balcony, and the food at Las Palmas was delicious. We cant wait to go again next year.!!
