“Great, Cheap and free breakfast/ BUENO, BONITO Y BARATO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

I loved the hotel because its cheap and its on the beach. The free breakfast is delicious. It has tv cable, A coffe machine and free wifi. 5/5

The bad part is there's not potable water but they give you 1 bottle of pure water.

Me encanto el hotel por que es barato y esta en la playa. El desayuno muy rico y muy bien servido. Tiene tv de cable, maquina para hacer cafe y internet gratis y rapido. 5/5

greetings from Juarez city.

Fabulous rooftop bar at the Freeman Hotel. The view from their outdoor rooftop pool area is awesome when looking for great sunsets and the green flash . A 360 degree view of the city and the beach, the Malacon walkway and Centro.

We had a wonderful stay here during our time in Mazatlan. The hotel is located right on the ocean and is in short walking distance to the Plaza Machado. The service was outstanding! Elias, a young man who helps with bags and is usually found in the lobby, was such a great help to us. We really enjoyed chatting with him and he was very knowledgable about where to go for certain places in Mazatlan. He even came outside with us to take pictures of us for our college magazine! The other staff was very friendly and helpful too. If you get tired of their breakfast buffet (which is delicious), the cook with whip up yummy French toast or an omelette for you, no extra charge. This hotel is perfect if you want to do lots of exploring in Mazatlan, it's definitely not meant for lounging in your room all day! The pool on the 11th floor has beautiful views and the sky bar has fairly cheap drinks :)

This is an historically old hotel that was refurbished about 10 years ago. It is beginning to look a bit tired but it is still comfortable. Our room was at the front so we had a nice ocean view. It is just a couple of blocks to the square and many restaurants or you can just stroll along the malecon across the street. There are coffee pots in the rooms but this is the third stay where there has been no coffee and none available at the front desk.The full buffet breakfast is great.

We are here now and in room 804- it has a balcony looking over the water and constant breezes to keep us cool. Down on the street the sun is blazing - up in our room with a cross breeze from the other opening window looking out at the city and our fan on, well it makes it hard to leave our room!
We travelled hard from the border and took a couple nights rest here. It is so perfect! the older part of Mazatlan is beautiful - we checked a hotel out in the golden zone but really, that part of town is not to our liking - too many chain restaurants for one thing. And most of the people there looked like they were trying to find a resort...
The pool at the top of the hotel is small and lovely. The breakfast is really incredible considering it comes with the room! Other folks pay 95 pesos for it. If you are looking for a place that makes you feel like you ARE in a resort, come here. So worth the price for an ocean facing room too.

This review might be not quite representative, due to the fact that usually the hotel managements consider that the transit customers… are just transiting.
Noted that most of the “Excellent” reviews, are actually with regard to the location.
Pin pointing the hotel room, have noticed some strange issues:
No HVAC System Fitted. (I.E.: No Central A/C in Desert Climate Location)
The rooms only are fitted with window type A/C & Ceiling Fan.
To achieve thermal comfort, the A/C Unit must run “hard” & “noisy”.
The tap water is NOT Potable.
Have to use “not cool” bottled water & beverages… as No refrigerator within the room.
TV Set… Discontinued…
“Safe” Box!... Really?...
The Safe Box can be completely removed in 10 min, as fitted with 4 studs of about 6mm on plywood.

Excellent Value in Mazatlan, about $80 a night in August, near the center of Mazatlan with a small beach only blocks away. Also only a block to some great seafood restaurants. Room was nice , could use a little updating but overall comfortable. Pool on the roof was small but with great views of the beaches and the city. Where this hotel shines in the extra value included. Wonderful hot breakfast included, waitstaff very attentive. Also stay includes access to the sister hotel in Zona Dorada which is on a large beach with a great pool and lounge chairs on the beach. Short drive or cab ride away. Excellent value for MZT. Also despite rumors that Mazatlan is not safe, never felt more safe and welcome as I did on this trip. Go and enjoy!
