Look no further than Mission Inn - EXCEPTIONAL!!!
My new husband and I went to a wedding here in 2019 and loved the resort! Naturally after we got engaged, it was the first place I booked to do a tour. We first met Jess and loved her about as much as we loved the resort. We chose the Marina location for our day cause it was so perfectly us. But honestly all locations were gorgeous and none would be a bad choice. We had the luck of being able to plan our wedding through the global pandemic and they were amazing throughout. Helen was our venue manager and she was absolutely wonderful, never missed a beat in ensuring we had the day we dreamed of and that we were happy. She was so responsive to emails and the ever changing factors of the pandemic. We got married on Sunday, but checked into the resort on Friday. My groom and his friends/family took advantage of the amazing golf courses, while I took advantage of the pool. This resort is so amazing. Everyone is so nice, welcoming and happy to give you your perfect happily ever after! The front desk was so helpful in making sure we had everything we needed and getting our welcome bags out (even our specialty ones). And if you can...ask for Mauricio as your banquet captain. We met him at our tasting, he was there during the day in our getting ready room, and I have never met a nicer man. Thank you to everyone at Mission Inn that gave us our perfect start for the rest of our lives, but especially Jess, Helen, Mauricio and everyone else. This is the most amazing resort to get married...if I could give it 100 stars, I would!Sent on 07/24/2020

Mission Inn, more beautiful in person then in pictures!
Mission Inn was on my top 2 list when searching for our wedding venue. From the initial email requesting information to touring the venue was a great experience. Jess C made choosing Mission Inn extremely easy even though the property spoke for its self. Her professionalism and attentiveness to our needs made choosing Mission Inn the right choice for our special day.Sent on 07/08/2019

Raising the Bar on Service
As seasoned travelers, my husband and I have experienced our fair share of hotels around the world. The Mission Inn Resort & Club offers more than just good service; it prides itself on genuine hospitality. This quality alone made the property an unparalleled value for our wedding, which we held at Marina Del Rey. Other features were just added perks, from the stunning, Old Florida scenery, to the simple touches such as fire pits outside La Hacienda that made for cozy pre- and post-dinner conversation "nooks." Hats off to Shelby who did a stellar job as our wedding coordinator. We didn't hire a wedding planner (I wouldn't necessarily recommend that!); however, she kept our minds at ease because she is always on top of her ****, not to mention an absolute sweetheart. She made the process effortless and fun for us. Outside the wedding crew, we and our families -- who stayed through the weekend -- felt overwhelmingly pampered by the staff. Staff workers were happy, attentive, personable and fun. Thanks to Greg, Rebecca and everyone else who left a lasting impression that weekend. If we had to nitpick: The resort did feel a bit worn, and one of the rooms smelled musty, but none of this fazed us or any of our guests -- the service surpassed any minor fault. Also, it's an old property; it's part of the charm! This place now holds a special place in our hearts, and we plan to return for a staycation sometime in the near future.Sent on 03/02/2020
