Kelly’s Spa gets very high marks from the reviewers.  Overall, the spa was getting a minimum average of 4 stars out of 5, and commonly 4.5 stars.  Some of the negatives seemed to be related to Hotel staff issues, rather than to the Spa itself.  

The most notable part of my review of the reviews was how often the eucalyptus steam room was mentioned.  There is no doubt that the combination of steam and eucalyptus is amazing for relaxation, muscle relief, and wellness, so it continues to surprise me that some gyms, hotels, and spas who have steam rooms fail to go to the tiny extra expense of including an automatic injection system for eucalyptus oil into the steam room.

Here are a few of the reviews that we picked up from various review sites. 

Ah Kelly’s… Where the eucalyptuses steam soothes the soul as well as the skin, the champagne is always bubbling , and the staff treats you like royalty. Not to mention pool access, decent lockers, calming lounges, and proper waxes.

Yes, I am most definitely a fan.



while on a weekend getaway with my husband at the beautiful and historic mission inn hotel, my husband and i decided to wake up in time to be the first guests at kelly’s spa and have it all to ourselves:) we both loved the eucalyptus steam room and found the entire experience to be soothing, relaxing, and rejuvenating. the atmosphere is very peaceful and service is friendly.

why does this place have to be so far away from beverly hills??

I have been to at least 15 spas out west here and this place still gets my vote for most loved spa (ok, spa at the four seasons on doheny is amazing and does a great pedicure).  I love that they could care less if you’re being healthy or are LA skinny and will stuff you full of champagne and chocolates and don’t care if you have some margaritas by the pool before or after your treatments.  LOVE the eucalyptus steam room. 


Quiet and Relaxing environment secluded away from the hustle and bustle of the busy hotel! Love the eucalyptus steam room and locker area. The relaxation room is very peaceful with fresh fruits and Fiji water.

Kelly’s spa @ The Mission Inn is the best spa ever. The staff is welcoming and always on point. The service is excellent. The Eucalyptus steam room is wonderful. I would and have recommended Kelly’s to many
