Azteca Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean little room but with a musky smell. Close to my favorite restaurant Pura Vida, movie theater and casino.

We run out of toilet paper other than that it was ok

Located in the Zonadorada just off the beach, AZTECA INN is central to all he restaurants and beach activities. Pleasant, simple accomodations.

Such a great experience, everybody Was so helpful and the location Was perfect

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.

This is no 5 star resort hotel. It is a small, clean, very reasonable hotel for those of us that would rather have nice accommodations at a "value" price, and spend our money on other things. Easy access to the beach. Right in the heart of the Golden Zone. Friendly staff. Will stay there again and again.

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.

Most friendly staff working hard to keep business in a very slow time for Mazatlan. Across the street from the beach, with a secure pool and patio area. Close to a lot of good restaurants in the Zona Dorada. We are repeat customers who will returnagain.

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.

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.

We enjoy this place every time we come. It's clean, convenient and cheap. Great location to the beach and food.

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.

wish they'd fix the hot tub but for the price it's the best place to stay in maz. friendly neighbors that have been staying the winter for years.

A clean, well-maintained economical hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant has good basic meals and is popular with the local business people for meetings over breakfast or lunch. The location at the south end of the "Golden Zone" isconvenient to many excellent restaurants and across the street from the beach. The best testimonial is the number of repeat visitors we meet every year.

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.

This hotel is located in the golden zone, within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and the beach. If you are looking for luxury don't book this hotel, all we really wanted was a decent place to relax. The hotel has a pool, jacuzzi, restaurant and bar. Transportation was no problem since we had our options of Pulmonias which are always in front of the hotel. Pancho's restaurant has good food & drinks. If you are looking for an inexpensive, clean place to stay during your trip, then i highly recommend this hotel. I would have to say the only downside are the hard beds, but this is very common in any part of Mexico. Beware of those time-share people they will do anything to get you to attend the 90 minute meeting, they will go as far as calling you to your hotel room.

We loved this hotel. The staff were great, the hotel clean and it was close to the beach.

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.

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.

the hotel was in a great and safe location. we drove are 2008 x-tera to mazatlan and the hotel had a great parking lot that was located in-side the hotel. The hotel is a bit old but for the price it was fine.
