Hotel La Siesta
La Siesta all right for the money
I spent 7 days here recently. I liked the location because it is near the old párt of town but 7 days was too much. Apparently it has been refurbished; there are key cards and it was repainted I was told. But, the mattress was the lumpiest I have ever slept on, I was getting bruised on my side from the springs sticking up. The pillows were about 30 years old- really, really awful. The air conditioning was good but noisy. A mini fridge would have been nice. The room was clean though and the help was nice.
They advertise wifi and I thought I would get some work done whilst there but it was virtually nonesistent; in 7 days I was able to get it for one of two minutes every few days. Fortunately there is a computer that guests can use in the lobby.
If you want comfort, go somewhere else. On the other hand, if you just want a cheap place then stay here.
Unique Quality: I had a sea view room which was nice - it is across from a beach that has families in the late afternoon, early evening - (this was August). The Shrimp Bucket is downstairs which is an easy place to get breakfast and has a full bar.
Directions: At the start of the Malecon, on the Olas Altas, in the old part of town. You can take a bus to the Zona Dorada or a taxi for about 100 pesos.
BEST hotel to explore Mazatlan
Have stayed at the LaSiesta for years, until I moved here. It gets better every Year! Secure, clean New pool, great location to scout Mazatlan! Not the tourist area, right in the middle of old town on the Beach!
Unique Quality: New pool, great court yard, all services, and secure. Great knowledge of area and close to everything.
Directions: you are on the beach..old town close to everything but the tourist zone!
Nice but noisy
The rooms with the ocean view are a must but they are noisy. I did not get a good nights sleep in the seven days we were there due to street noise (especially the bass booming taxis)
Unique Quality: Old town location is good. Shrimp Bucket is on the first floor - good food.
Old Mazatlan Inn
This is an old hotel, I bealive it was built in the 50's the people who stay here just wan't something small, good budget and clean. And that's what you get. The mornings fill up with locals having breakfast in the restaurant below called the Shrimp Bucket, and the sun begins to appear in the upper sky around 11am (I had a south corner balcony) and the cars and buses start to pile up down below for a busy morning rush. There is no elevator but it's a 3 floor building with stairs on each end. The rooms are clean and big enough for 2 people, the hot water takes some time to come out and then it goes and comes back, very weird.
Unique Quality: The hotel has a nice pool but it was too cold to even consider going in. I basically didn't do the beach thing but rather explored the city (downtown) Cathedral, the Lighthouse is a hike away and so are the ship piers. The Plaza Machado is walking distance.
Directions: Next to the deer statue
it was wonderful
I just got home and am ready to wash my clothes and get back on the plane. This was a most wonderful trip. This hotel was everything and more than I expected. The staff was outstanding. My luggage was misplaced by the airline on the way down and the young woman at the front desk made several phone calls and had it delivered to the hotel the next day. My room was clean bright yet simple. The ocean view was breath taking and I will stay there anytime I return.
Unique Quality: Go for the ocean view room. The sounds of the ocean are well worth the few dollars a day. The staff at the 'shrimp bucket were attentive and the food was good. Prices were reasonable.
Beauty in Old Town Mazatlan
Hotel La Siesta sits above a great family restaurant called "The Shrimp Bucket", which is much more appealing then the name! The location is directly on the beach front. About a 15 minute walk will bring you into the heart of 'old town Mazatlan', where you can enjoy live music, family experiences, fabulous local seafood, beautiful warm weather, etc, etc, etc. The list goes on forever with this town and hotel. If you do not want to stay for the nightlife, but rather the culture and beauty of Mexico, Hotel La Siesta is the place to be.
Unique Quality: Trees grown in the center of the lobby and vines grown everywhere make the hotel seem like a tropical jungle of sorts.
Directions: 5 minutes to Downtown Old Mazatlan, 1 breath from the pacific ocean
Close to town
The only thing I didn't love about this hotel was the noise from the street that separates the hotel from the beach. But for $40 a night and a balacony with a killer view, it was worth it! I went with my mom and we felt very safe. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. They have a computer in the lobby with internet so you can check email. It just depends what kind of traveler you are...if you want the charm of the REAL city, stay here. If you want a luxurious resort, go to Hotel Playa Mazatlan. The Shrimp Bucket restaurant downstairs was really good and reasonable. The walk into town was 4-6 blocks, and the beach across the street was very clean and perfectly fine. We took a pulmonia to the Gold Zone adn checked things out but honestly, the beaches didn't seem any nicer.
If you stay here in an ocean front room, just expect traffic noise at night and bring ear plugs.
Unique Quality: Get a room with an ocean view, it's worth $4 more a night!
Hotel la Siesta
After staying at the hotel la Siests I will never stay anywhere els in Mazatlan. I stayed here for a month in January of '04 and loved it. It isn't anything spectacular as far a amenities and comfort go, but it was perfect for me. It's away from the hotel zone,located in the old part of Mazatlan. The rooms are very simple and kind of old, but all the ocean view rooms have balconies that open up to a fabulous view. There is a tiny patch of beach across the street, but if you really want to experience the beach you'll have to take a taxi. You'll also have to take a taxi to get to the hotel zone. The rooms were really cheap and the staff is awesome. If you aren't picky and you like getting away from all the touist attractions Hotel la Siesta is the place to go.
Unique Quality: Great view, Friendly staff, away from hotel zone.
