This gorgeous inn is rumored to be haunted, and even has some haunted rooms you can stay in. Reports here include cold spots, apparitions that vanish when you get too close and even touching. In the Bridal Suite, some have reported being pushed while trying to walk down the spiral staircase that is located inside the suite. The hotel is also said to be situated on a network of catacombs that are closed to the public due to safety reasons.

  • Way Back When We took the tour of the catacombs (long since closed)

    As a kid Mom and I took a tour of the catacombs - this was before 1963. I recall the tour guide was interesting but the place gave me the creeps. They would walk you through sections making certain no one was left in the prior section then closing and locking gates to that section. It was very dark and creepy. The guide was accompanied by a janitor with a flashlight who opened and closed the catacomb sections. When Ghosts are around I get a tightness in my back and had it when we were there. I was only a kid and did not understand this back then. We moved North and the Mission Inn was abandoned for many years until resurrected. I recall it opening when I returned to UCR to go to graduate school 15 years later. I had not had my back tightness recently until a year ago when I visited the now open San Francisco Hippodrome site. The hippodrome was a crub in SF (that is to say a bar you could get shanghaied at, where gambling and prostitutes were available), The site on Pacific Avenue in San Francisco was abandoned and closed for 40 years but recently leased to an art store. The staff at the art store tell me when they are opening the store they can hear footsteps come up to them when no one is in the store so legend there is the former patrons are still in residence. In the basement of the hippodrome you can still see access to the under street tunnel where the shanghaied were removed to the ships or where those killed in the bar were taken away never to be seen again. The current art store has 24 hour security cameras with IR capability but they are not full spectrum and so nothing has been recorded there - but oh my back went off when I was in the basement just like at the the Mission Inn... So I felt the ghosts there... It is too bad you can no longer take the Catacomb tour but understandable as the basement catacombs were a lot like going through a pyramid they were so old and creepy.
