“Hotel in old district - great find!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

I was pleased to arrive at this hotel - right across from the ocean & malecon, very friendly welcome, clean room with incredible view of ocean and surrounding streets.

The day of check in was a celebration and they had a jazz band playing from 6 pm. Not bad. The Shrimp Bucket restaurant is in the centre of the hotel, open ceiling with lots of greenery - charming. Was so crowded last nite, I ate at the bar, which opens onto restaurant. Had coconut shrimp - YUM!!!

Great rate, great location, a bit tired looking, but very charming, with friendly & helpful staff!

Room Tip: for views, oceanside; otherwise ask for inner courtyard room which would be quiet if no band playing...

We just returned from a couple of days in Mazatlan. We stayed at the Hotel La Siesta on Olas Altas in the old section of Mazatlan. The Hotel is rather tired and worn, but the beds & room were clean and we had an ocean front balcony. It was convenient for walking around the old section of Mazatlan and the Malecon.

Room Tip: Street side is a little noisy; but that is where you have the ocean front balconies----and the noise...

We stayed at Hotel La Siesta from Dec 24th to Jan 1st. This is our second trip to Mazatlan and the second time we have stayed at Hotel La Siesta. We would recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget or who wants to stay in/near Old Town Mazatlan. We rarely were disturbed by traffic noise and we were staying on the third floor right facing the Malecon. The beds were a little hard, but that is most places in Mexico. You so close to everything: Plaza Machado, lots of restaurants and the beach wasn't bad either. And everything is within walking distance. We would often go to the Mercado for Breakfast and then continue on from there. Also, The Schrimp Bucket was very convenient for dinner and drinks.

i'm currently at the hotel now, love the location. Short walk to the market, cathedral, light house, cliff divers. It is a little noisey on the ocean view side, but the breeze and the view is worth it, lots of street noise if your a light sleeper. friendly staff, and the guys down in the shrimp bucket are great.. would definatly stay here again...

Good choice in Mazatlan if you want to be near the old town. Pay the extra for a room with a sea view and you are likely to get a view of an amazing sunset. The rooms are basic, but clean. Not the sort of place you would probably want to be for a week, but is fine for one or two nights.

Stayed in Feb of 2010. Hotel was super clean and most fantastic location if you want to be in Mexico and not the tourist zone. Balconies have the most awesome view of the ocean and sunset. Street right below the balcony, but only noise at night was the waves crashing on the beach that we could hear through our OPEN windows. Rooms outdated but very clean and comfortable. Everyone was nice and helpful. When we go again, we will not stay anywhere else. LOCATION , CLEANLINESS, AND PRICE cant be beat.

Room Tip: You must have an oceanview room. Dont settle for a courtyard view. It is not worth it.
