Great place in a great locationPosted Aug 9, 2011 on Hotels.com
My husband and I loved the Old Mazatlan Inn! It is located on a hill in the old section of the city, and is close to everything. It's a very short walk to the beach, the market, plaza Machado, and the cathedral. Although it's easy to get to other parts of the city, my husband and I spent most of our time in the old section near the hotel, because we liked that area best! The rates for the Old Mazatlan Inn are very reasonable, and the place was amazing! It was always clean, and the staff was always friendly. The cleaning staff folded our towels into a variety of different animals each day when they straightened up our room - very creative! O'Neil, the manager, was particularly helpful. He recommended several great spots for us to check out during our stay, and we were never disappointed. One morning we had a tour scheduled, but my husband wasn't feeling well - when I went downstairs to try to call and reschedule the tour, I found that the tour office wasn't open yet. O'Neil kept calling for me and rescheduled the tour for us, so I wouldn't have to continue calling personally. We also really enjoyed meeting O'Neil's dogs! We definitely had a better experience at the Old Mazatlan Inn than we would have had at one of the giant chain hotels in the golden zone. We really love staying at smaller, independent hotels when we travel, because of the personal touches and relaxed atmosphere - and the Old Mazatlan Inn doesn't disappoint. I have stayed at hotels in other cities before where the photos I saw online beforehand weren't quite representative of the actual place. The Old Mazatlan Inn, however, looked exactly like the photos I saw online, and with the spectacular views of the city and the ocean, it surpassed my expectations! I would definitely stay here again if I visit Mazatlan again in the future, and I would highly recommend it to anyone I know traveling to the area!

Would definitely returnPosted Jul 27, 2011
Hotel was clean, well-maintained and staff provided excellent service. Check-in for Expedia bookings was as simple as showing up at the gate and receiving the keys - no paperwork, no hassle. A perfect way to start our vacation. It's a short walk to Playa Olas Altas (2 blocks) and easy access to old town. Not much parking, and the street in front seems to be one-way, so call before arrival if driving.

Hidden JewelPosted Jun 3, 2011 on Hotels.com
The Old Mazatlan Inn is a fabulous hidden gem located in the Old Mazatlan, very close to the market, blocks from the beach, and plenty of night entertainment within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable, showing us the key areas of the neighborhood and tips on getting around town. The rooftop view is amazing, and the outdoor kitchen is a unique feature. I highly recommend Old Mazatlan Inn for an off the beaten path hotel.

Relaxing stayPosted Sep 9, 2010
We loved the apartment style accommodation. We had been travelling for 4 months on a budget, and to have access to a full kitchen, air conditioning and cable was a great treat. The pool looked nice although it looked like it could do with a bit of a clean. Apart from that, the facilities were great, and the stay was made even better by the hotel allowing us to stay late on check out day as we were not departing the city until very late. It was greatly appreciated. We not hesitate to return.

Tons of character, super deal and great location.Posted Aug 13, 2010
We loved the pictures and the feedback from the reviews so we thought we would give it a try. The room was great - we came in July (which makes us a bit crazy) but a fan in the living room and one in the bedroom and remote controlled air conditioning make it super comfortable. Loved the pool which we used everyday, roof top patio had great views, and O'Neil's binder on what to see and do in Mazatlan was excellent. Great location as we were within blocks of a bunch of restaurants and bars, markets (don't miss the historic town square on the weekend) and the ocean. We loved the architecture of this place with the brick work, tile and plants. Tons of character compared to the other places we looked at and later walked by that we could of stayed at for the same or higher price. Having a kitchenette was an extra bonus and we really liked that. We'd definitely recommend it for someone looking to explore Mazatlan and not be stuck in the Golden (Hotel) Zone.

A gem of an Inn in Old Mazatlan!Posted Dec 23, 2009 on Hotels.com
The old Mazatlan Inn is a nod to the charm and artistic beauty that is real Mexico. Situated in a lovely neighborhood, close to everything; the sea walk (Malecon), Plaza Machado and all of the sites in the Historic center of Mazatlan are an easy walk away. The building is a marvel and the sunsets from the roof terrace are sublime. We could even see the cruise ships docking while still snuggled up in our bed. The staff and manager will bend over backwards to make your stay in Mazatlan a memorable one. Great extras include free wi-fi connection, beautiful pool, and an outdoor common dining and BBQ area (to cook your fresh shrimp!) make you feel like you are at home in your grand hacienda!

I would definitely go backPosted Sep 2, 2009
The Old Mazatlan Inn is great. It's clean, the rooms are comfortable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Old Mazatlan is beautiful and there are many great restaurants. The Inn is walking distance to the Malecon and the Plaza. Also the views from the roof deck are amazing.
