Don't waste your money.

This hotel is not worth any amount of money. We had an awful experience and left early. The hotel was full of locals who drank all day and night in the halls and pool area. There was no way to sleep. I called the front desk several times and it was like they were scard to say anything to them. There was no control. The room was not well maintained and the bathroom was a disgrace. The gentlemen at the front desk said we had the best room in the entire motel, even though I called and said the toilet wouldn't flush. It was a awful experience and I would recommend spending more money at another establishment to feel secure and able to rest at night.

Very Clean

Hotel has no elavator, we had requested a lower level room in advance because my roomate has trouble with stairs. I even called the hotel a week before we arrived, but front desk staff would not work with us at all. Also hotel bar no air and private owner not a part of the hotel. Year before great staff parked are car right in front of our hotel door.

good place to stay for a great inexpensive price

The staff at the Azteca Inn were really nice (and helpful). Food in their restaurant was great (had breakfast there). Rooms were clean; only thing is they could use new mattresses (could feel the springs). All in all, for the price I would stay there again.

mzt carnaval 2012

This was our 2nd stay @ Azteca Inn. We decided to stay here for Carnaval because it was away from Playa Olas Altas (where the festivities are held) but close to the Malecon for the parades. The only reason that I did not rate this as a 5 star is because during our 8 day stay, there were about 15-20 kids in the pool and jacuzzi as early as 7am (daily). We could not sleep in (not even once ) during our vacation. Our room was located on the first floor adjacent to the pool area. I was highly disappointed that the staff did not control the noise level nor that the parents respected the other guest and pool hours. Besides that I would probably stay @ Azteca Inn again simply for the price, service and location which you can not beat.

do not purchase suveniors in the Golden Zone, buy them in El Centro (downtown) where you can always bargain and get a great deal.

Cheap and Good

This is not a fancy hotel at all. Basic , but well maintained and clean. Perfect for the older traveler such as myself who doesn't need the fancy bar and nightlife activities. Great location in the Golden Zone, although not right on the beach. Walk across the street through the lobby of a high-dollar hotel and you are at the beach. Can't beat the price for a nights stay.

Great location, but some downfalls

Staff was courteous & helpful, cleaning staff friendly, small little bar and pool area. As others mentioned SHORT & FIRM beds if you're over 5'8 ... For beach access, need to cut through other hotel lobbys across street or walk to pathway. Helpful to know Spanish in Mazatlan not as many speak English. Those that do speak English are often timeshare sellers and will try to get you to see there promotions. As we walked towards the golden zone we noticed the lack of restaurant/bars, probably due to all-inclusives. Also, just a note, along this stretch going into the golden zone the beach area comes and goes with the tides, alot of the hotels did not have beach chairs/ for sunbathers so again, depending on your travel needs you may want to inquire. Azteca Inn provided us the basic room and low pressure shower facilities, nothing special, not sure if they have any with kitchenette, it is what you pay for & it worked well for us. If they did a little updating it would be great especially on the water pressure. Just depends on how much time you'll be spending in the room. Not on the beach but their description states that. This location is near everything and as far as that goes I'd recommend this area over others just choose your hotels based on your travel needs & desires. We walked everywhere, barter with the taxis when you want to take one they are sometimes willing to take less. Ask for purified or bottled water when dining.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

All the local restaurants and bars are within walking distance of this area. Yoopers, Gringo Lingo, GusGus has a great breakfast, Panchos, Villa Italiano and ChiliPeppers (just past ElCid) great food - limited beach bars ones we found that weren't a part of hotels Joes Oyster bar (younger crowd w/music all day), Panchos; past ElCid was ChiliPeppers & Tonys; towards Historic downtown several beach hut restaurant/bars near the Howard Johnsons were good food and cold beers.

Average is good.

The bed was hard as a rock. Convenient location is a plus. The rooms were standard, but very functional. Maid service, [...], was excellent. The in-house restaurant menu was overpriced. No services for day trips were provided. Safety deposit boxes were behind the check in area. They attempt to try to get you for a time share presentation at Las Flores. For the money spent, it's a good deal. They may be across from the beach, but access is a good walk away where you will be swarmed by the ravenous street vendors.The place is average, so you have money for everything else.

Arre Lulu, Margarita's are a short walk away. Each specializes with seafood. Jungle Juice and Panama are good choices for breakfast.

Good for Price

Clean and good for the price. Pool and bar area a bit noisy, if you like complete peace and quite. I checked out 2 days early and got no refund for the 2 days due to the promotional rate I got on [...]. Rules are rules, but they could have offered something. They were told early in the day that I was leaving and could have re-rented the room easily if there was demand for it.
