Great budget hotel in the heart of things. Short walk to the marina. Fantastic location. The only slight negative - poor wifi. Nice clean pool. Restaurant with excellent breakfasts and happy hours (2 daily). Rooms are spacious and clean. A/C and plenty of hot water. I loved the old wood wardrobe in my room. There's a nice terrace to sit...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2016

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Mar de Cortez last week! We booked 3 Standard Pool View rooms and were all next to each other in 115, 116, 117, and one King Suite which was just around the corner in 501. Check in was easy and received our towel cards for the pool. We had requested mini... More

We spent one night here after spending a week at Pueblo Bonito. (Took advantage of lower plane fare). Nice little place right in the center of old town shopping. One of the first three original hotels from the little fishing village days. Owners and front desk people were very friendly and accommodating. Room was pretty drab, but I must say... More

I booked this hotel because of an awesome internet special they were having. If I was rating the hotel by price alone, then it would be a 5. The good stuff: Location! Centrally located in downtown. Everything is walkable. Fresh fruit cart at the corner about 15 yds from the from door. Room was very clean, a/c worked good, shampoo... More

This hotel was nice. The staff was super friendly!! The beds were a little hard but for the price it was awesome. The rooms were clean and nice just no tv and the wifi is spotty but other than that, the food was good at the restaurant and I would come back here! It's right next to everything!

Front desk staff were very friendly. Hotel is a very short walk to the marina. There are several places to eat very close. The hotel was surprisingly quiet. Food at the hotel was decently priced, especially for an afternoon by the pool. They have a happy hour for beers from 1-2 and 5-6 pm. Even breakfast was a great value.... More
