“Great central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We stay at this hotel every time we drive through Mazatlan. The views are great as we always get a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the malecon and ocean. It's a short walk to the square with many restaurants nearby. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the servers are very attentive.

Room Tip: We prefer a room to the front of the hotel although the rooms at the back overlook the city and port...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We transferred here from the tourist zone hotel, Playa Mazatlan, and were so pleased by this new hotel that we are writing this review. Nice room - ours being on the eighth floor, with a wonderful view of the city and port. Far quieter than the tourist zone hotel, food is much better and service is personal and professional. Great location if you have any interest in the historical zone and how locals live. Also nice location with some great seafood restaurant on the boardwalk as well as a few ones interior to this location. Wonderful bakery located nearby as well. We had some wonderful walks in the area and highly recommend this hotel and location.

Room Tip: There will be some elevator noise in this hotel as other reviews have stated. We were on the eight...

This bar on top of this 1st high rise hotel is the best place to see 360 degree view of Mazatlan. Waiters friendly & quick to serve. Have to walk up last stairs as (original!) elevator doesn't go there! Must do experience.

We recently spent 10 days at the Posada. We stayed in a great suite with a kitchenette, living area and a bedroom. The views were fantastic......ocean view from the front and city view with cruise ships from the side. The suite is huge with 2 tables and sets of chairs, couch, etc.

However, all suites are next to the elevator which sounds like a trapped moose howling all day and stomping it's heels. It was nearly unbearable. Plus the street is very busy and cars can be heard careening by at all hours. If you like quiet, this is not the place for you.
But if quiet is not a concern, this hotel is great....situated in the Old City and huge with wonderful views. The staff were wonderful, too.

Room Tip: You can hear the elevator in all the rooms, I believe, so try and get a room as far away from the el...

" clunk" goes the elevator from 1946 to take you to a private pool and sunset bar on the 11 th floor. Most romantic place ever! Rooms lovely with lots of charm. Exceeded our expectations. Great staff and super reasonable. Best Western had a short term promo of third night free so paid only $60.00 a night. Huge breakfast with tons of fruit overlooking ocean.

We stayed for three nights. Booked on-line and reserved a city-view room. When we checked in they put us in a small oceanfront room - this was OK with us. The room was basic - no fridge etc., but clean and a nice ocean view.

The front desk and bell hop staff were excellent. The included breakfast was good - lots of Mexican choices and if you wanted they would prepare something a la carte.

The location is first-rate - right on the bus route, close to centro historico and across the street from Olas Altas. There a number of restaurants and bars right in the area and a lot more downtown.

The rooftop pool was small but nice. The roof has a great view of the surrounding area and the city.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel can be a bit noisey between the waves and the street (Malacon) in front of the ho...
