      Historical Traveler Reviews Azteca Inn Mazatlan

      Great value for the money


      I highly recommend the Azteca if you are looking for a budget week in the sun. Be sure to check your room location before unpacking - some of the rooms back onto the noisy back alley. Bring your own cheap pillows (at $5 each they are worth it). Pillows provided were very old and thin. Leave the new pillows there when you leave - for all the other budget travellers who will replace you. Housekeeping staff could not have been more sweet - please tip them, they only make about $4-5 US a day. We tipped $2 US a day, and the service we got was spectacular (they came in and folded all our clothes we so carelessly dropped on the floor!). Pool area was OK but just hop across the street for the great beaches! I'll go back next year for sure.

      Azteca Is Great


      This is a great hotel if it is not important to you to be right on the beach. We have stayed at Azteca many times and will always come back. It is a really clean and friendly hotel and it is very centrally located so walking to shopping, beach and restaurants is very short.

      Great location


      We enjoyed our stay & will like to come back, the music in the bar was fun and enjoyable.

      the location it's great!! definatelly we were in the right place, where the fun is.

      Nice surprise


      very nice

      we stayed at the azteca last september and we were very pleased, nice clean rooms with marble floors, also is in the middle of the tourist zone, you can walk to many stores and restaurats,we will go back

      Never again!


      I've been to various cities in Mexico over a dozen times. I typically try to find budget hotels to save a dollar or two and I'm very generous about sharing the names and locations of some of the great finds around.....Azteca Inn is NOT one of them.

      Our A/C unit leaked from the ceiling creating a large puddle of water in the middle of our room. I contacted the front desk and they sent someone to inspect it. I was assured the "puddle" wouldn't continue to grow as they'd solved the problem. In the morning our entire room was flooded by 1 1/2" of water! All of our suitcases that were on the floor were entirely soaked through.....great way to start the week's vacation. I contacted the front desk to explain what had happened and they refused to give us a refund - "Oh, so sorry seniorita!"

      Also, the pool was dirty and much too warm and the pool-side bar they boast of wasn't even open the two days we stayed there.

      I hate to give bad reviews but when you get such poor customer service or lack thereof, I have to say something.

      Loved the layout of mazatlan


      my wife and I just returned from mazatan on jan31we liked the aztecca inn's friendly staff but found the teenagers too loud at night and the noise wasn't controlled when we voiced our complaints.other than that it is in an ideal location in the golden zone and the beaches are beautiful.we travelled all over mazatlan by buses .the aircon ones were 8.5 pesos and the older buses that the locals use were 5 pesos.we easily reached the municipal market in less than 30 minutes and perhaps an hour going by way of cocos and wallmart.we found the prices for most items in wallmart to be more expensive than in canada.also if we went to burger king or dairy queen it was much higher priced than in canada i.e.a big burger in burger king cost 60 pesos and wasn't very good but when we went to the lunch counter at the playa mazatlan it was 24 pesos and superb and we could eat under a palapa hut on the ocean.we didn't go to mexico to eat burgers but once in a while you crave one.the seafood in mazatan is wonderful but pricey in the golden the shrimp factory across from senor frogs it cost us 400 pesos for 2 shrimp dinners you can buy a kilo of jumbo shrimp in the market for 100 pesos and the panama restaurant and panderia is also a great place to eat and moderately priced.if you wanted to live in mazatlan you can find a one bedroom apartment for about 300 canadian a month furnished and with everything you need in the kitchen to cook with.the mexican people are friendly and music fills the air everywhere.I can't wait to go back george chalmers vancouver bc.

      Spiders and cockroaches


      We stayed in a room right by the pool and when we come into our room after dinner we have over 100 cockroaches in the bathroom and had about 1000 little white spiders coming out from around the mirror....its was awful,,,we changed rooms to the 3rd floor and it was ok...I would not stay there again this was my 3 rd visit

      Clean & excellent service


      we found the Azteca inn to be a cheap and nice place to stay. The rooms were small but were clean. Had air conditioning and desk staff were very nice and courteous. It had a pool and hot tub and was kept clean. Water in hot tub was drained and refilled on daily basis. Hotel was close to all activities in Golden Zone. At night was very quite. Would stay again.



      Not only is the Azteca in cheap in price, it is cheap all the way. I mean the rooms are very very small, no a/c but they do have a ceiling fan(like that helps). We had to go into the Playa's lobby just to cool down from the heat. The place is very dirty. We couldn't even look at the pool it was brown. We snuck into the Playa across the street to go into the pool. Like I said before it is very cheap! Believe me when you are partying, you have to rest at some point. The Azteca is not the place to put your head, feet, lugage, anything down anywhere! DIRTY DIRTY DIRTY. They also have bugs in the rooms. Not just ordinary bugs. But big ugly bugs that the hotel wouldn't do anything to get rid of them.

      Pay the extra money to stay in a nicer place like the playa. DON'T stay at Los Floras either! It is cheap but a lot of violence for locals happens there!

      Excellent cheap hotel


      Last year i took my first trip to Mazatlan, Mexico. It was amazing!!!! The Azteca In is a remarkably cheap hotel located across the street from "The Playa Hotel" the rooms are adequate but if your there to party it doesn't really matter. it has a respectable pool and hot tub, the rooms have showers but no bath tubs, a/c, and a ceiling fan, compared to the more expensive hotels that won't even let you bring in your own beer, this is the best bang for your buck in mazatlan. have a good trip!!!!

We also had a wonderful drink made from hibiscus flowers as well as a margarita! The restaurant was set in a garden partially covered. Chickens, roosters and chicks wandered throughout and after dinner some sheep were released and fed from bottles - much to the delight of ...

They pretty much lived where they work, a small brick shed where they slept and showered, one of them looked like he had not showered in weeks, his clothes were filthy and his hair was dull and dirty, and he wore flip flops in the dirt he had a limp and a seemingly crooked walk from a damaged foot. Later we found out it was his 56th birthday this day. The other guy much younger, told us his birthday is next week, he will be 27, he was a lot more ...
