This is an adorable establishment in the delightful historic center of Mazatlán. It is a half block from Plaza Machado, a lively area with many things to see and do. The inn is run by an American named Tony. When we arrived we were disappointed that things were not exactly as Tony had led us to believe. For example, by our fourth day we still had not had our rooms cleaned. When we asked, Tony dismissively told us that the maid was on her way and sarcastically asked if we wanted him to empty the garbage for us? We needed to make a local call and were told to walk to the nearest pay phone on the corner. We were asked to make no noise as there was a permanent boarder who slept late each day. We were told if we used towels for makeup removal we would be charged for them. Asking for an additional roll of toilet paper, Tony begrudgingly delivered one to our room. When we asked him for recommendations of an authentic place for a meal we were told that he (Tony) never ate anywhere in the area as he was very selective about food.
A positive note was his wife's restaurant, I Love Lucy's, adjacent to the inn. Wonderful food and charming surroundings and Lucy herself was delightful and an outstanding cook.
During our stay in this section of town we did investigate other places that seemed to be very well received by travelers we ran into and perhaps, all things considered a better value.
