Pros: The hotel is modern and stylish. It is very clean and comfortable. The room was very romantic- perfect for couples. The shower was amazing. The location is great- right by the plaza machado where all of the restaurants are located in the centro historico of Mazatlan. Cons: the toilet seat cover was removed from the toilet in our bathroom... More

This property is right in the old town of Mazatlan. It has been extensively updated and has a LOT of architectural appeal, while not being very practical. it is basically several rows of old fashioned hotel rooms with doors that open to a walkway over a central, open courtyard. Only the rooms have A/C and they struggle if it is... More

After having traveled to Mazatlan several times, staying in budget friendly hotels/hostels I thought I would treat myself. Too bad the candy inside the pretty wrapper is rotten and should be thrown away. Pro: The property is appealing to the eye. It has a nice modern touch in such a historic area of the city. Con: Staff: Mixed group of... More

This hotel should be successful but for many reasons it is not. First being the design of the place is not conducive to quiet. It is like it is in a tunnel and the noise is terrible. The rooms upon entering look lovely but the rocks around the base of the bed are not practical. The lighting is not good... More

We book a night in the hotel as my husband and I thought it was perfect. We came to the hotel late at night and they didn't have our reservation, the lady in the front desk didn't seem to know what was happening, at the end we had to go somewhere else. We tried to contact the manager to explain... More

this hotel thinks of itself as trendy; but unfortunately the name doesn't fit. Trendy room lighting does not make up for poor facilities, bad a/c system, horrible bathroom lighting and lack of space in bathroom to place toiletries. Restaurant was closed so we couldn't even get ice!! For $112 per night, how shameful! Location is run down and hotel has... More

We have seen this hotel often and my hubby has always wanted to stay. The location is great, right next to Plaza Machado, few blocks to market and few blocks to beach. Other than location and the beautiful lighting in the room, that's about it. We called the front desk several times for different issues. They never answered, each time... More

Pros: Everything in this new hotel is upgraded and beautiful. The lighted rocks around 3 sides of the bed and the back lighting behind the bed were a special bonus. The beds and linens, curtains, heating and A/C, flooring, bath fixtures, other decor, etc., all high quality. The unique frameless glass enclosed shower is hard to describe and very modern,... More

This place is right in the center of Old Mazatlan (Plazuela Machado). The atmosphere here is great; kinda artistic vibe (must be becuase of the Angela Peralta theather that is just across the hotel), cozy, warm and quiet area. It is definitely different from the beach resorts location by the malecon/zona dorada. Mazatlan to my opinion hasn't much to offer... More

My cousin and I stayed at the Jonathon during our recent trip to Mazatlan. It was a lovely and enjoyable experience! The staff was super friendly and very helpful. They all spoke english so there weren't any communication issues. Mostly, I was very happy because they all entertained my millions of silly questions with a smile! We got 2 standard... More
