The little Mission Inn Museum is worth a stop in once. There is not a lot to see but the docents are very enthusiastic. There are quite a lot of gifts for sale. Take a walk through the Mission hotel if you can.

This place was very nice but it really isn't anything super special or a must to see when in Riverside. The hotel is beautiful and very expensive.

We took tour of the Mission Inn Museum and learned the interesting history of how one man's vision crafted this beautiful place. Guide was very informative. Saw many of the hidden locations in the hotel. Made it easier to explore later. The chapel was spectacular with its Tiffany windows.

The museum is small but packed with interesting exhibits of historical artifacts of the Riverside area. We took the docent guided tour from here of the Mission Inn which was really fascinating. The tour is approx 90 min with a lot of walking throughout the Mission Inn and grounds to many areas of the Inn that would not be accessible... More

This was the third time I had taken this tour; back in 2007 and 2012. The guide who was a docent in training was very good and you could tell she was passionate about the Mission Inn Hotel. There were far less areas that we saw compared to the other two tours I had taken though, and a no-photography policy... More

Beautiful Hotel, celebrated Valentines Day last year. We did the brunch & bought a Spa package. We will definitely head back. Book it a year or more in advance, whatever the occasion... trust us! The drop down menu was not offering Valentines Day 2016, tripadvisor, please fix.

It's a beautiful place to visit even without a tour. They have two parrots that greet you at the entrance and there are lots of unique little shops surrounding the inn. If you get a chance to go upstairs the view is very pretty from the outdoor balconies on the roof. The inside is full of history and even just... More

Festival of Lights was icing on the cake. Take a docent tour for full experience- comparable to Hearst Castle in historical significance.

What a treat to visit the Mansion Inn Museum and take the tour! Our docent was delightful and so knowledgeable. This was our first trip to Riverside so it was awesome to get some history on this neat place and to see the beautiful Festival of Lights, as well!
