Our original reservation at another location was cancelled and we weren't aware of it until we got there. Was in a scramble to find some place to accept our two dogs and this one was suggested so we drove the 2 blocks down the street and took the room. First room the AC was not working, 2nd room ... same...

This is an old Mexican Hotel but right on the beach with great views of the water. It is old, maintenance is not ideal, BUT it is at a budget price, staff are very friendly and they accept pets. After being "kicked out" of Azteca Inn because they had decided to no longer accept pets, this was a breath of...

I think the title sums it up... For the second year in a row, when we arrived they had given away our two week reservation. We were well within the check in time. From other reviews, this is a frequent occurrence. Our printed copy of the e-mail they sent confirming the dates wasn't of much use, as they still refused...

The large patio/pool area with gorgeous views and sunsets is as nice as all the surrounding resorts and this is what you pay for. Los Arcos is the cheapest lodging on this beach. So why are some people grumbling? The apartments are older, things break, everything doesn't work properly all the time. The clientele is largely Mexican and they can...

All i really care about when budget traveling (which this particular trip was) is cleanliness and comfort. This hotel had neither. We had put a deposit on a few weeks in advance, and when we arrived, 20 minutes after the check-in time, there was nothing available. We had to wait, WITH OUR BAGS, for 2+ hours. we did not get...

We stayed here for a week and it was terrible. The only redeming quality was the beach access and great view. The staff was very helpul through all the hiccups...Upon our arrival we discovered that they had lost our reservations. However, they were able to put us up for the week. The AC did not work well as it "swung"...

When I arrived at the hotel, the room facing the beach which I had reserved and paid for two month previously, was not available. I was given a terrible room which was facing a noisy street, crawling with ants in the bathroom, paper thin sheets and generally nasty. Since people were partying outside my room until 3 am, I got...

My family has been going to Mazatlan for a long time. My uncle started staying at Los Arcos 5 or 6 years ago, every winter for 4 or 5 weeks. Then my parents and older brothers and have joined them for the last few years for New Years. Los Arcos is a great hotel. It's small, so it doesn't have...

We love this place! Been there 4 or 5 times. It's where Mexican families stay on vacation. Comfy, apartment style rooms with a living room and kitchen in 2 bedroom units. The showers are awesome. I love the open concept with 5 foot high walls for privacy but lots of room and air circulation. For a family, the showers work...
