Best Western Posada Freeman

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed last week at this resort. It’s in the old historic Centro area that makes you feel you are walking the streets of Europe. Many out door cafes and resturaunt. This hotel has the pool and bar on the 9 Th floor . So you need to walk up 2 flights of stairs to get to top. Our room was very well furnished and the bathroom was big. Ask for room 202 with a view of ocean and balcony. The front staff Renee was very helpful. Big buffet breakfast was delicious and included. Great price for value.

Take the elevator up to the top, then walk up the remaining two floors to the enclosed bar. Walk up one more floor to the roof top. Fantastic view of beautiful Mazatlan. There is a small swimming pool up there. Been there several times to have margaritas and watch the sunset. Would give this 5 stars but the waiters like to overcharge you. The menu that they give you says margaritas are 80 pesos but we were charged 100 pesos. Said they upgraded the tequila. We didn't ask for it but they insisted we had to pay for it. Ruined a beautiful sunset.

The Posada Freeman offers a friendly rooftop bar on the 11th floor. A panoramic view, great drinks and friendly service make it a perfect destination. Nice to go just before sunset and stay until after dark.

Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by an enthusiastic front desk team. We had that feeling of belonging albeit that we have never stayed there before. Esmerelda was very helpful. The room was well appointed with all the comfort that you need for your stay. The dining room staff were attentive yet not intrusive and the Breakfast buffet was huge with an incredible choice. The swimming pool area right on the beach is beautifully appointed with sun loungers and bar service.

This is the third time I have stayed at Best Western Posada Freeman and have always found the staff to be very pleasant, helpful and courteous. The accommodations are very nice, the views breath-taking and the location is ideal for the beach, the malecon and el centro including Plazuela Machado and the Angela Peralta theatre...which are not to be missed. They include excellent free wi-fi and full complementary b/fast daily.

This is a review of the BAR, not the hotel. We accidentally found this bar. Four of us had walked from the ship to the Plaza and Cathedral area. Then we walked to the Malecón which is very pretty. Walking back we wanted some Mexico beer. It was about 11:00 am. This hotel is across the street from the lower end of the Malecon and looked like it had a nice restaurant facing the ocean. We got inside and they told us to go up to the Bar for just beer. You go up the elevator to the top/9th floor and then walk up 2 flights of stairs to the 11th Floor. The bar is beautiful. What a gorgeous 360-degree view of the Malecón, downtown, everything. We could see our ship in the harbor. Beer, Negra Modela, is $2 each. We sat, relaxes, it was cool and quiet. You can walk up one more flight of stairs and they have a swimming pool. Lovely place to sit, relax, cool off and enjoy some Mexican Beer.

This is not a high end hotel but offered us some very nice features. The breakfast was very good and the roof top pool and bar was a great place to unwind and look out over the Pacific and the city. The rooms were nice, comfortable and clean but a little small and the hotel is rather old so take that into account. Right on the beach so you can swim in the ocean if you aren't a pool person. The old city square was a quick walk away and nice to visit on a Sunday when the families are all out. Lots of good restaurants nearby. The Cafe Bolero was right out back, thru the parking lot and offered very affordable dining and a fantastic tamarind margarita. The only downside was there was a wedding going on in the banquet room floor below the rooftop pool/bar and it was quite loud. If you are staying on a weekend choose a lower floor to avoid this and a room at the back of the hotel as street musicians play well into the night too. Or do as we did ... party hard and pass out!! You are in Mexico!!!

When we stay extra days, we stay at the Freeman Hotel. Service is welcoming and the breakfast provided is great. The sunsets are so beautiful on the rooftop pool and bar. When we stay at other locations, we still visit and have a drink to watch a 360-degree view of Mazatlan, the view from the rooftop is amazing with the most beautiful sunsets. Looking down the coastline onto the Malecon is great. The building is around 60 years old with an elevator that is still in its original shape. The hotel is a few blocks away from old historic downtown area, tourist shopping areas reached only by bus or taxi or pulmonía. Breakfast was included and tasty. No potable water, they give you one bottle of water. The only negative aspect was parking space. The price is wonderful and we will go again.

Very comfortable older hotel, across the street from the malecón & the ocean. Good, friendly service & great buffet breakfast. Definitely my "go-to" in Mazatlán....close to "old town" & city centre. Coffee on the balcony, watching the kids surfing down good is that?!?

We were taken here instead of the one in golden zone. Very clean friendly. Beds hard as a rock. Noisy noisy noisy. Pool on top level is cold. Elevators are scary. Did not like. But if ou want history it's great. View across the road is beautiful
