“Man, what a great place to stay!!”
Reviewed February 5, 2002

Man, the Howard Johnson Don Pelayo Mazatlan is the best hotel ever. I think that anyone considering staying there should just shut up and sign. Don't be nervous, everyone knows that thieves in Mazatlan are afraid of roaches and possums. They also have great accomodations for lovers of the new "Handsy-Handsy" craze.

The first night we arrived at the Howard Johnson Don Pelayo in Mazatlan our room was burgarized... while we were in the room sleeping!! We lost $480 cash American, 2 pair of tennis shoes, a watch, sun glasses and an electric razor. The hotel's 2nd floor looks out over a shed roof that the thieves use to just walk right up to room windows. The hotel desk relocated us up to the 4th floor...but then continued to rent the 2nd floor out even though there were other rooms available. They continued to put there new guests in harms way. We made it a point to call each new check-in on the 2nd floor to watch out. I feel the whole thing is a set-up. They never called the police either!! We didn't either because they kept saying they would make it right for us with their insurance company. On the last day there, their offer was...if we filed a false police report and claim the TV, microwave, coffee pot were stolen too then they'd give us our cash loses back. This hotel should be avoided. They're crooks. I contacted the Howard Johnson franchise headquarters and they seemed truely upset and told me they'd be getting back with me in 15 days. Stay tuned.......
