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.

Loved the Hotel Posada Freeman!Posted Mar 8, 2013
Pros: The staff, location and the view.
Cons: The elevators were a bit rough.
Location: Perfect location in the fabulous old town
Our stay was absolutely wonderful! The staff were very friendly and professional, the room was clean, quiet and had a great balcony with a view, and the daily breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful. this was our third and best vacation in Mazatlan, thanks in large part to the Hotel Freeman.We won't stay anywhere else during our next visit.

Good ValuePosted Feb 3, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff, welcoming and lovely lobby facing the beach, awesome breakfast
Location: In Olas Atlas, the oldest part of Mazatlan; faces the beach with only a narrow road between it and hotel)
My husband and I, a retired couple, loved the hotel because it was more naturally Mexican, not too big and in the old historic area. We could just walk out the door and either stroll along the "Malecon' a wide sidewalk boulevard that stretched for miles along the beach or go into the heart of the Mexican neighbourhoods or sunbath and swim at the sandy beach right in front of the hotel. The buffet breakfasts which are included were outstanding. It is within walking distance of several of the best restaurants in the city. The rooftop view is not to be missed! The only drawback to the location was that some nights there was noisy music from a nearby nightclub so earplugs would help.

Great hotel & loved the locationPosted Nov 28, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel . We had a junior sutie that overlooked the beach so could sit on the balcony morning and evening and watch the sunset. The rooftop pool was also quiet and in a spectacular setting. The staff could not have been nicer or more accomodating and spoke English which was really helpful. The breakfast that was included was great & we noticed that it was also a favorite place for may locals which is always a good sign! In terms of location it is very close to the old town, which was much more preferable then that north end of Mazatlan whicih is very touristy. There is a bank next door and a couple of great restaurants and a great coffee shop. Fantastic all round! We would certainly go back.

Old Mazatlan will give you a great experiencePosted Aug 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel was pretty good, I see many comments about the old elevator and it's somewhat true. It is a little rough and sometimes you have to wait a little bit for a ride, but there are these things called stairs that work great. I think the old elevator gives the hotel character. If you head up to the top floor you can get a drink or hang out at the roof top pool overlooking the malecon. Make sure you check out the cliff divers about a 5 minute walk from the hotel too. I've stayed in the new Mazatlan and found this part a better experience.

Our stay at the Freeman Hotel Mazatlan MexicoPosted Jun 1, 2012
Location: Perfect location!
We have been going to Mazatlan for many years and this is the first time we have stayed at this hotel, and we think it is our favorite hotel. It is in such a great location, close to shops, bars, resturants, a few blocks from down town, a spa around the corner. The hotel itself is in fantastic shape, the rooms are very clean, they have a coffee pot, everything works perfectly including the bathroom. All the staff are so friendly and very helpful, from the front desk to the maids, servers and the bell boy. The breakfasts are very filling and something different everyday and if you want something different all you have to do is ask. We will definitly come back to the Freeman, thank you for your hospitality!
