The Hotel Belmar is clean, convenient, with secure parking and great internet. Yes, I would stay again. The beds are a bit stiff, Mexican style, but the staff are accommodating. Nice and quiet on the inner circle of rooms. Step up and down out of the elevator. All around a pleasant place.

The Belmar has a bohemian quality to it and one can feel the history. If you require champagne, a mint under your pillow, or even dependable water pressure, go to one of the newer flashy joints in the Sábalos district and pay $200/night. The Belmar is reasonably clean and safe. $35 for a king-size bed and a balcony overlooking the... More

We spent one night at Hotel Belmar while traveling through Mexico via motorcycle from LA on a tight budget. This was a great location (although in a busy area during the day and early evening, things appeared to shut down at 10pm and street food was difficult to find) and for only $20 for an interior room it worked for...

After several short stays at the Belmar, this past winter we decided to stay for five months. We were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is old, yes there are parts that desperately need repair, but the suites on our floor are all in good repair and very comfortable. We have a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, which are all very serviceable. The... More

Realtors advertise Location! Location! Location! and the Hotel Belmar has it! It is the oldest beach hotel in Mazatlan, located in the old historic district. I'm not sure how many stars the Belmar would have, it is old, worn around the edges, and badly needs upgrading. That said, the location can't be beat, the staff are friendly and helpful, Alicia...

I love staying in historic old hotels with lots of character. This was to be our last night in Mexico before flying back to LAX. I chose this hotel for its location and history, but I didn't expect it to be in this bad of shape. Consider this place a shipwreck on the beach, it should be towed out to... More

I recently visited the Belmar Hotel in Mazatlan. I had read some stories about it being a real jewel back in the 40s and 50s. It was a place where Hollywood greats hung out like John Wayne. It's also reputed to be haunted which is the reason I had to go see. We stopped by about midday and they were... More

The hotel has been around since the late 1800 and much has not changed, but it is in the process of a remodel. So far only paint has been done but the owner told me that the whole hotel will be brought up to modern standard. As for location, you could not ask for anything better. You could throw a... More

My wife and I have been staying at the Bel-Mar since probably1992 or before. We've made some pretty good friends either working in the hotel {Niko, Alicia] or surrounding business's. Fonda Santa Clara is a couple doors down and the staff is alot like the Bel-Mar. Always wearing a smile and always there to serve. When we return, I'm always... More
