“Probably not again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Nice location very close to the Plaza Machado and is on the Malecon. However, I stayed on the "backside" of the hotel. No window with any view (I could see the back of the building next door, and the window could not close because the TV cable wire was draped through the opening.) The closet door and the bathroom door were just one big flat 1/2" plywood board. No door handle. Bathroom looked like it was from the 1950's.

Maybe if you pay the price to stay on the ocean-view side the rooms are a little more upscale. However, I don't think I'll bother to try the place again.

The pluses were the room was cheap. The room was clean. And, you have the restaurant "The Shrimp Bucket" right next door!

Room Tip: Try the ocean-view side.

I just returned from 7 nights at La Siesta. It is in a good location if you like being near the old part of Mazatlan. I went swimming in the beach right across the street-although in August it was too hot during the day-everyone came to the beach around 7 pm. My only gripes are that the pillows were really awful-they need to throw them away and get new ones- they were totally lumpy. The mattress was also lumpy-I couldn't sleep on m side because it poked me. The room was huge though and it was nice and clean. It would have been nice to have a mini fridge and a larger TV but I only paid about 48 bucks the first 5 nights and about 35 the last two since that was the start of low season.
In sum, it is ok for 3-4 nights but you might want to then go to somewhere a little more comfy.

Room Tip: I had a room on the outside and it was nice to be able to see the ocean, especially during the storm...

My family and I stayed at the la siesta last summer and we did have a great time there ! The hotel is right on the beach with a great view of the ocean .The hotel is located in the historic district .The rooms are very clean , the shower was large and lots of hot water .The room had two double beds .Over all a great value for the money .The hotel is good for people on a budget we had a great first visit to Mazatlan staying here !!!!

Room Tip: Choose the ocean view rooms we really liked the view.

Stayed here in first time 2007/2008 New Years, it is the real thing as far as a Mexican hotel goes, family run, clean, good value, on the main street looking out on the ocean. It's in the center of everything.
If you're looking for 5 stars go down the street, this is Mexico!

Room Tip: The side rooms can be a little noisy at times, especially for New Years.

Mazatln can be put in two catagories... those visiting for sun, booze and nightlife.. and those looking for the real Mexico. La Siesta is right on the waterfront in the old town, only 400 metres from Centro Historico and it is where we like to stay. The bus outside the door can take you to the Zona Dorada every 10 minutes for US80cents. Most visitors tend to forget that Mazatlan was here for a long time before the development of the Golden Zone , and the is a lot of Historic places to visit. Also, the staff here are great.

Room Tip: Rooms # 214 and 314 are by a long way, the best, right on the corner with two large balconies overlo...

We loved staying at the La Siesta..the rooms were sparse but clean,the staff were amazing and the location was the best..while in Mazatlan,venture into centro Mazatlan to find Cafe Maya for the best burritos and coffee.

We stayed March 15-25th 2012. Third year in a row,great basic hotel. Great maid service,rooms were clean. The front desk staff are wonderful and helpful. You are in walking distance of the central market,great places to eat, and alot of cultural events. We always get an oceanview room expect traffic noise , it's part of Mexico. By the way, we take the public bus alot and walk to many places, at no times did we ever feel unsafe. Go to Mazatlan and stay at
the La Siesta and enjoy Mexco.
