Hotel Mission de Oro was built and opened in 1974 by Jesus Monroy, who was inspired to recreate the mission in his father’s hometown of Tepoztlán in Morelos, Mexico. Jesus’ dream was to construct 27 missions, each 400 miles apart, thus creating a new Kings Highway on Interstate 5 from Alaska to Argentina. Special points of interest include our 9-story bell tower; a million-dollar mission, wine and agrarian art collection; life-size replica of Michelangelo’s Pietà; and the bronze busts of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Dwight D. Eisenhower, dedicated in honor of their participation in developing the local San Luis Dam.
Nestled in the golden California foothills, this landmark’s convenient location serves as the perfect stopping point for travelers heading anywhere from San Francisco, Los Angeles and Yosemite National Park to Monterey and Santa Cruz.
Today, Hotel Mission de Oro has transformed into a full-service hotel, offering a pleasant retreat in a secluded sanctuary. We have 162 guest rooms, including 93 superior mission-style rooms, and 10 separate meeting and event rooms totaling 17,000 square feet, with the capability of accommodating a total of over 1,000 people. We offer organizations a training facility where members will find a pleasant retreat for their meetings.
Since the hotel came under new ownership in 2015, a total renovation has aimed to outfit the hotel with exceptional amenities and conveniences, while retaining its original vibrancy and historical significance. We welcome you to enjoy our new family-friendly upscale casual restaurant, fantastic sports lounge, pool and fitness center, and brand new wine museum showcasing the missionaries’ roles as the first to bring grapes and wine to California.
Exciting future developments are expected to include the renovation of the courtyard into a garden atmosphere, a San Joaquin Valley agriculture and food processing historical center, and a fine dining restaurant.
Whether you are new to the hospitality industry, or an experienced veteran, we hope you will be our next great colleague. Hotel Mission de Oro offers a full suite of services to our guests, so we have opportunities in guest services, administration, sales, and food and beverage.
