Our first trip to Mazatlan ,after leaving the -30Posted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: Great buffet breakfast
We spent three nights at this hotel prior to a condo at tiera sands , it is a very nice old hotel, beautifully maintained with a wonderful pool on the top and fantastic views of the city, the breakfast buffet was really great, the only complaint we had was that it was difficult to get a good nights sleep due to the noise outside and the elevator was noisy

Loved it; would stay againPosted Feb 28, 2014
Pros: The staff were all very accommodating, breakfast was either buffet or a la carte and included in price of room.
Location: Walking was great, across the road from 15 km seaside walk as well as great streets and restaurants in restored buildings of Historic area.
Great hotel in old Mazatlan. Very well priced, handy to all amenities. Part of the National Heritage Site, this hotel has an excellent bar and swimming area on the roof.

Great breakfast and staffPosted Feb 24, 2014
Full buffet breakfast was very nice. Location cannot be surpassed, close to central market, square, beach and malecon view for lots of people-watching. The rooftop bar and pool are gorgeous. The room could have been less cramped if one of the beds were removed, but it was clean with lots of hot water and a lovely ocean view balcony. I really liked this hotel.

THIS HOTEL SUITED USPosted Feb 1, 2014
Pros: The hotel provides a splendid cooked breakfast from 7 a.m. till noon. This includes Mexican breakfast dishes as well as our kind of breakfast dishes
Cons: It is an old hotel and the fittings are old fashioned but that was no problem to me.
We spent four nights in a very pleasant room on the 8th floor overlooking the length of the Olhas Altas beach. We were in the old part of Mazatlan and a two minute walk brought us to the old town with its art galleries, gift shops restaurants and bars. At the top of the hotel is a very nice bar and above that a small swimming pool surrounded by a pleasant deck with views of the ocean, the distant Gold coast and the old town.

Best Western Posada Freeman - MazatlanPosted Oct 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here one night before my timeshare started and it was lovely. The infinity pool on 13th floor overlooking the sea and city was spectacular. The receptionists, waiters and all of the employees could not have been nicer. The breakfast was superb. I will definitely be back for a longer time.

Historic hotel in old Mazatlan with rooftop poolPosted Jun 19, 2013
Pros: Pool Bar Views Close to ocean friendly staff convenient restaurant
Cons: Technology- problems running my credit card noisy
Location: Go to El Presidio restaurant. Just a few blocks away, world class food. Walk the Malecon, the 7 mile boardwalk.
Stayed here for one night on a business trip. If you are flying into Mazatlan and need to unwind, the rooftop pool and bar with amazing views are perfect to make you forget your worries. There is a full service restaurant with solid food, the staff is friendly and speak English. Biggest downside is the noise- from the street, the elevator and the bar. I was so tired I could have slept through anything anyway.

Freeman Hotel Mazatlan HistoricoPosted Jun 3, 2013
Pros: Everything about this hotel is fantstic! The staff are the best and you are treated like royalty!
Cons: There is nothing negative about the Freeman.
Location: Love being in the Historico District, close to centro, right on the Malecon.
The Freeman is our favorite hotel in Mazatlan. My husband and I have been going to Mazatlan since 1972, have stayed at many hotels and the Freeman is our favorite. The staff are all so friendly and are very helpful, couldn'd ask for anyone better. The location in Historico is very handy, bus stops pit in front making transportation to the Golden Zone and Cerritos easy. The malecon is a very busy street and great for people watching. We are already planning our next stay there. From the inroom coffee to the fantstic buffet breakfast, it just doesn't get any better,

Nice Hotel, Good Pool, Good ValuePosted Mar 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We quite enjoyed this hotel. The service was excellent, especially in comparison to other hotels that we have stayed at in Mazatlan. The hotel itself is a little older (apparently the first hotel in Mazatlan), but it is not dirty at all. The only real sense of the age that we got was the elevator - which was a little interesting as I believe it may have been the original elevator. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and along with the rooftop pool had an excellent view. The only downside is that the beach (just across the street) is somewhat rocky in that area and not necessarily the greatest for swimming.
Convenient for one nightPosted Mar 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The beds were extremely hard and the elevator made lots of noise and was "bumpy".

Best view in MazatlanPosted Mar 21, 2013
Pros: The view and proximity to the historic center.
Cons: Loud street music late at night.
Location: Along the ocean in the historic center of Mazatlan. Within walking distance to great restaurants and cultural events.
I requested, and received, a ocean front room. The view from these rooms are the BEST in all of Mazatlan! For me, this magnificent view and the dedication of the staff to meet all of their guests' needs means that I would be likely to recommend this hotel to friends. However, this is an old property where electricity, telephones, etc. are constantly having to be repaired. The staff, however, works mightily to make things right for their guests. If you are someone who wants a modern, sanitized hotel experience this is not the place for you. If you want a more "authentic" experience with a responsive staff and jaw dropping view then you would enjoy this accommodation.
