Everything was great! The food, the ocean view and the locality was very good. We stay there every time we go to Mazatlan. Love the sunset there and the commodity of the sun chairs. The rooms are very clean!

This was my second time staying here and I'm really attached to this gem! The peaceful sound of the ocean waves late at night and the early mornings! I love the location. I love the breakfast buffet. I love the different sitting areas indoors and outdoors. I love how people come together at sunset and have the view. I love the easy beach access. I'm hoping I get to return next year!

Can not say enough about how clean this hotel is. You smell disinfectant everywhere. A very good thing. Danial bell hop very friendly and helpful. Front desk very good. Maid staff very pleasant and welcoming every day, clean towels and facecloths everyday. Very good sit down breakfast included with room. Luis is a very good server. Staff ready to set up our table outside by the pool. Upgraded to a suite over looking the ocean. Coffee in the morning on the balcony. Sunset at night. Close to restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend. Only downside bar staff unattentive and hard to find and need to smile

After a very interesting walk from Central Market,thru some beautiful old streets with gorgeous architecture,we finally found the Posada. As a first timer to Mazatlan I wasn't too sure where to find it,but locals and tourists help with directions . We came in the back entrance and were immediately encompassed by smiling staff and a beautifully maintained Queen of hotels. Look at the old photos and memorabilia in the main lobby's,take the elevator to the 9th floor(the elevator ride alone is worth it),check out the old stained glass and architectural notes,walk up two flights of stairs to the top floor bar,surrounded by windows to view Mazatlan. Then walk up two more flights to the roof top bar and pool. Check out that view,order what I say is the finest Piña Colada in Mazatlan and pretend your with the movie stars and rich that frequented this fine establishment over the years. Did I stay here?,but I shall in a future trip absolutely!! The front lobby is perfect to watch the ocean,with comfortable seating and big windows . I didn't see the menu or try the food but that will happen as well! What a great place!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

We visited the Sky bar for drinks and light snacks. Service was a little slow, but we were there to watch the sunset and it did not disappoint. You don't have to be a hotel guest to dine here. Its a great option if you've spent the day in Olas Altas, walking the malecón or visiting Centro Historico. Go up for a few drinks, relax and watch the sunset🌄🌅

It's good located there's so many restaurants, bars, clubs near by, don't need a ride! you can wake up every day with a nice view, the service is great and the food AWESOME (free buffet breakfast)!!!!

Never stayed here but the place is clean and the people are friendly. It is an older hotel but I will stay here on my next trip. Some people mentioned the roof top view, so I went up it also has a pool and a bar and serves lunch. The front of the hotel has great seating to watch the ocean and a nice beach out front. I will stay here on my next visit because of the ocean view, beach out front and its location to the golden zone. Everything is within walking distance or a short cab ride.

I have stayed here several times and still love it. But there are things that the hotel can't control which presently detract. Repairs on the Malecon mean jack-hammers going from 8 AM until 4 PM - especially intrusive in the beautiful open-air breakfast room. And there is noise (some might call it music) from nearby clubs/bars - until well after midnight, weekends. We stayed in two rooms for a week, one officially "ocean view" and mine #705, billed (in both senses) as "city- view) but with a beautiful sea view. Small room and even smaller bath. OK for one. The TV in my room never worked. The wi-fi on the 7th floor was erratic. Really good breakfast buffet supplemented by individually cooked eggs, omelets, etc. splendid service. The small pool was perfect for the grand-kids when they tired of the playa. Old Mazatlan has long since been "discovered". More English spoken than Spanish. Overwhelmed by gringos when cruise ships are in.

Take the elevator to the last stop and then walk up two flights of stairs. There is a sweet pool and a few tables and chairs. but it is the view that you must no miss. The entire city and surrounding laid out for your view. We had drinks, other reviews indicate lunch is possible. We were there in October, something of the off season so not crowded, but in my past visits it has never been crowded. I have not stayed at the Hotel but would definitely consider it. I love the location on the ocean front.

My wife and I did not stay there, but our taxi driver suggested the roof-top bar for a great view and place to have a light lunch and drinks. He took us to the old city and we went to the roof-top bar for a breautiful view. The Freeman hotel was built in the 1940s and purchased/renovated by Best Western. The lobby is attaractive and the hotel is clean and modern with a older and elegant feel. It is located on the Malacon in the older part of the city so it feels less touristy. Take the elevator an a flight of stairs to the roof to enjoy one of the best views of the city and the ocean. The drinks are excellent as well as the lunch. Enjoy!!! I will definitely stay here my next trip to Mazatlan.
