Can anyone recommend a self serve laundromat close to La Gran Plaza?
Can't vouch for laundramat near Gran Plaza... But we have paid for the whole nine yards at a place near Pueblo Bonito.... about 6 dollars for about a weeks worth of clothes.. Washed dried and folded. If it's not a long term thing, I'd opt to pay for the service and hang out somewhere nice. :-)
That would be Lucy's? Across from Pueblo Bonito. Drop off your laundry on the way into town, enjoy the day and pick up your laundry on the way back! They do a great job!!
Indeed.. Lucy's .. We don't bring as much to Maz as we used to and hit Lucy's mid trip.
Thank you for your suggestions but, we're here for 6 months and I'd rather do our laundry myself.
Can you narrow it down a bit, as to your location? Are you near Av. Insurgentes? There are some lavanderias listed in the phone book on Insurgentes that you could check out.
Nearly ALL the laundries (lavanderías) in Mazatlán are full service and don't allow self service. The one major exception that I know of is across from the Hotel Costa de Oro in the south passageway next to/behind the Banco Santander. They offer both self-service and full-service.
I'll tell ya...I had my laundry done south of Royal Villas...wonderful...went to the laundria across from Costa de Oro to "do it myself"...save money. Cost the same. Only difference in my mind is that I could control the dryer heat. Had some shrinkage. I usually dry on low, they did not.
We used Lucy's Laundry which is just across the street from the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan. We had the the laundry done because it was so inexpensive and they did a very good job. Everything washed, dried, folded and bagged and nothing shrunk or faded.
The last time we were in Maz you could do it yourself at Lucy's Laundry. That was last year so things may have changed.
Most laundries are full service, as stated, but we have usually found one that allows self-serve during slow periods. You just have to ask nicely, they can say no. As someone said they tend to ramp up the heat in both washers and dryers, so we will just wash, and let nature do the drying. Quite revolutionary? lol!
Thanks everyone! We did find the one across from Costa de Oro but, it was closing for the day so they directed us to another one 2 blocks east of the Dairy Queen. It is called Ocean Laundry and we were able to do everything ourselves.
