“Warm, comfortable, convenient and welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

You can get anything you want at Loro de Oro Inn. I just stayed there for a month. The owners, Tony and Lucy, are welcoming and extremely helpful and respond to requests immediately. It has a large jacuzzi and a common room. WIFI is available throughout. The rooms even have cooking facilities, fans, TVs, and air conditioners. Mine had a balcony. The rooms are comfortable and quiet so you get to be in the middle of El Centro and less than a block from Plaza Machado and yet have your own quiet escape. It is also a safe place in a safe neighborhood. It is convenient to many, many places in Mazatlan including Olas Altas beach, the theatre, Nidart, Casa Etnica, Plaza Machado, Plaza Republica, the Mercado, a full service quick stop store, a lavenderia, and buses that go everywhere in Mazatlan stop 1/2 block away. The price is excellent and better than competitive. It is a charming place to stay and I would choose it again and again.

We stayed here for 4 days in April. Tony upgraded us to the beautiful suite. The decor in the suite is wonderful, from the furnishings to the gorgeous leaded doors opening into the bedroom. Yes, there are a few 'niceties' that could be added and are usually provided at most inns and B&B's: a hairdryer, some nicer bath soap, maybe some lotion and shampoo. The kitchen was well equipped with glassware, toaster, large fridge and cook stove, however we would have loved a blender for making fruit smoothies and drinks. Very quiet at night, but the bed had one of those thick foam pads which proved to be too soft and warm for us, so we took it off completely the 2nd night. However some people that like a soft cushy bed might really like it. Otherwise we slept soundly. The upstairs top deck is great for afternoon lounging and reading and looking over the city. Close to everything, great art galleries nearby and a great restaurant on site. PLUS, really reasonable prices and free Internet.

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.

Tony and Lucy are the most generous and wonderful hosts --ever. We spent 7 days in December, the suite was beautiful, plenty of room to move around, the food at Te Amo Lucy's was fabulolus. We would go again in a heartbeat, if we could. We will definitely go back as soon as we can!

My husband and I just returned from a week in Mazatlan, staying at the Loro de Oro Inn. Our accommodations were excellent! The inn is on a quiet street, 1/2 block from the Plaza Machado and a short walk to the Malecon and beach, Plaza Republica, and any number of shops, restaurants, markets, etc. The inn surrounds a lovely enclosed courtyard with pool and jacuzzi. Tony and Lucy are the perfect hosts. They were more than accommodating to our needs and were great fun to talk with. Our suite was beautifully decorated and included a very comfortable living area, large bedroom, and a complete kitchen for those moments one might feel the need to heat up something (leftovers?). Our timing was perfect as we were there for the grand re-opening of Te Amo Lucy, the on-site restaurant. The menu is large and varied and the food is excellent! We plan on returning to Loro de Oro on our next trip to Mazatlan.

The inn is a most enchanting place in a beautiful city. The service is excellent, the accomodations are beautifully done, and comfortable besides. We had access to entertainment, restaurants, and the most beautiful beaches and sunrises and sunsets ever. There are museums, history, and peace and relaxation. The food is excellent at Lucy's restaurant in front of the Inn, and the proprietors, Tony & Lucy make you feel at home and like you are their only guest.

Hidden from the street behind Te Amo Lucy’s is the Loro de Oro Inn – My wife and I have vacationed here for the past five years and we look forward to many years to come. Behind the restaurant and through a gate and walkway – a gorgeous interior courtyard complete with a newly renovated swimming pool, hot tub and lavish garden, as well as a myriad of plants including cacti and spider plants of amazing size. Vines adorn the walls and entrances with beautiful peach, coral, and white blossoms. A BBQ grill and comfortable eating area under a red, stone-tiled roof beckon you to a quieter life where the simple pleasures are equally important. A custom mural depicts old world craftsmanship as well as a spirit of land and culture; an original oil by Jose Duarte Gomez, the center of the piece depicts Mary over the image of a cathedral. It is an oasis in the midst of a disheveled, age worn, yet intriguing city. Art and architecture enhance the senses. Our bungalow was exquisite! Every inch speaks to the finest of Mexican architecture mixed with state of the art American standards all of the amenities of home, but in Mazatlan. There is a roof top deck where you can catch the sun’s rays, look out over the city and on some days, watch the cruise ships come-in to port.
We highly recommend staying at this charming Inn. The Inn is conveniently located one block from Plaza Machado within walking distance from great shopping and restaurants. The Loro de Oro benefits from having its own restaurant on site called "Te Amo Lucy's". The restaurant is operated by the same owners as the Inn. The food is consistently excellent. Authentic Mexican recipes, freshly prepared. Your hosts Tony & Lucy are warm and welcoming. Tony is a great source of knowledge about Mazatlan and he seems to know everyone. The rooms are clean, well serviced and there is Wifi internet on site and purified water. What more could you ask for!
