Comfortable Stay As Always

In February 2014, I stayed at La Siesta Hotel. As always, I enjoyed my stay. The staff was very nice and helpful. My room was always clean, sheets and towels were changed every day. The hotel is located close/within walking distance to downtown, Plazuela Machado, plenty of eateries, and across the street from the beach. Every morning and night, I was able to view the ocean, which is always great. The hotel isn't a 5 star resort, but is one of my favorite spots in Mazatlan.

Another great visit...

My boyfriend and I usually stay at this hotel when visiting Mazatlan. The location is the best possible, being just across the street from the Olas Altas beach and right next to the historic old town center. There is many great restaurants, bars, and beautiful buildings and sculptures to see. I would also recommend the Athina Spa, just two blocks from the hotel for some amazing massages.

Historic old Hotel in the middle of the action on the Beach by the old Town in the real City of Mazatlan and not in the "Golden Zone" (the mainly American part of Town)., Good Restaurants and entertainment nearby

Good value at a great price

We really enjoyed our three night stay at the La Siesta Hotel. It is right on the beach in Old Mazatlan. We had a beautiful view and could open our sliding door to catch the ocean breezes. We were able to have a corner room which was much more spacious. It was clean and attractive. The beds were quite firm but I like that. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are no real amenities to speak of. Plenty of restaurants nearby. The one issue is that the hotel does not have it's own parking so you have to find a spot on the street. On weekend nights that can be a problem.

Great bang for your buck

La Siesta was great. This is not the pace if you want luxury, but the location was solid, walking distance to all the old-town sites and great restaurants. Rooms were clean and had windows and doors that opened onto a little deck and the waterfront--wonderful! The main drag is right out the window, so a bit noisy, but it didn't impede the ability to sleep, and the crashing waves took over after the cars died down for the night. Beds weren't super comfortable, pillows could use an update, but for me I don't want to spend too much time in bed sleeping anyway and the comfort level was good enough. There's a decent restaurant on site and a bar that can supply any late-night needs. Ruth who worked at the front desk helped us book a tour and a taxi to the airport, and everyone was super nice. For a get up early and go do things, come home for a quick shower and go out again for dinner and retire for a nice evening on the patio overlooking the ocean...can't be beat for the price!

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Get to the Looney Bean for coffee at 8. Walk next door to Baika to rent a beach cruiser bicycle. Then pedal the malecon up to the golden zone and shop, walk around, etc. Panchos for lunch was awesome. Check out the nicer beaches up in the golden zone. Bike back in time to drop off the bikes and eventually walk to Plaza Machada to find a restaurant, or even better, another block or two to Topolo for a really good dinner.
