Best Western Posada Freeman

Recent guest reviews

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

I stayed here many times because I was by myself in Mazatlan for business but never again. The place has gone to HELL....... I think BW should just demolish this entire hotel and start from scratch. Even the employees have gotten worse. NOPE-NEVER AGAIN! Breakfast buffet? Don't bother-The eggs are cold and you must pray to GOD himself for a coffee refill! Cold beans and you must fight the flies at the fruit tray!

The sunsets are beautiful on the rooftop pool and bar. Walking to the coastline Malecon is great each morning. Service is friendly and the breakfast provided is great. No potable water, they give you one bottle of water. Will go again.

My windows are open -- ah, the ocean breeze and beautiful view over the Malecon out to the distinctly Mazatlan coastline. Never turned on the AC. Basic hotel, not a resort. Great location in Centro Historico. At night, the local entertainers serenade. Fine service. Angelina's restaurant behind the hotel... see my review. And nearby: Tippy Toes for the mani/pedi/facial/massage/haircut you've been needing. All good!

Do not mistake the usually satisfactory accommations Best Western provides. This hotel the rooms are dirty, water is not filtered, service is slow due to understaffing. My sister and father familiar with area and selected hotel for the location near ocean, cathedral, galleries and shops. Okay we accepted rooms not updated modern but beds are terrible hard, very low old toilets. As my 82 year father summed it up -- you get what you pay. A two night stay turned into a one night upgrading to another hotel. Good Luck!

Every year now, I go here and take new people with me to see the sunset from the roof of this hotel. The sunset is beautiful from here and there is an infinity pool on the roof. The view from the top of the Freeman is incredible. You can see in every direction, the ocean, the port, the light house, the cathedral, the city. As the sun goes down, and the lights start turning on, it looks like a fairyland. We usually manage to go here for a drink before going on to a local restaurant for dinner. I regret to say that I have never eaten at the restaurant on the ground floor. A wonderful experience.

La Posada Freeman was a great place to rest a night on out our way South to Ajijic, MX. The location puts us close to the toll road that we use. A bonus is the free breakfast buffet, which equates to about $ 30 US including tip. There is safe & secure parking within the hotel grounds, which made us feel comfortable, since we travel with a packed car on our way south. Our next report will be on the quality of th breakfast buffet.

We always take our Mazatlan visitors to the bar at the top of the Freeman. To get their you will take the lobby elevator (old but safe) and then walk up 2 flights of stairs to the pool deck. Here you will get table service and some nights some easy listening music. From the top you can see the Olas Altos, the miles of the Malecon, the Stone Island Beach, the Pacifico Brewery, the Angela Peralta, light house, etc. Its a lovely way to spend an hour.
