“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

Fantastic location right on the seafront. Good restaurant attached. Ocean view rooms are terrific but if you can't get one of these...the rooms on the side on both floors have an ocean view as well and you can still see the sunsets. The pool is quiet and a sun trap. It's basic...but it didn't bother us. The rooms are clean, the showers are hot and the beds comfortable. Free internet for guests at reception, lots of knowledge about trips..(use ONCA whalewatching as he's a marine biologist and really knows his stuff). No lift...not a problem unless you are disabled.Really quirky middle section too with trees growing in the central courtyard over and above the building.

Room Tip: Ask for 213,313,228,328 if you can't afford an official ocean view room. Look around on hotel we...

We stayed here Jan/Feb 2012 for 11 nights, it is great. A very clean and friendly place with amazing views if you get a beach view room. The restaurant below is wicked for breakfast and all meals, really nice staff and a good bar. The reception staff are really helpful. It is in the old town which is so different to the Zona Dorada, much more relaxed. We booked a whale watching tour through Onca explorations which I would also recommend.

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...
