We spent one night at Hotel Belmar while traveling through Mexico via motorcycle from LA on a tight budget. This was a great location (although in a busy area during the day and early evening, things appeared to shut down at 10pm and street food was difficult to find) and for only $20 for an interior room it worked for us. There was no AC but you can hear the sound of the waves crashing against the malecon and the birds that appear to have taken over the hotel chirping all night and morning. The room was huge with two full sized beds (very very firm as were the flattened pillows), no hot water, a ceiling fan, no tv, wifi only in the entry of the hotel but we could never get it to work for us, and definitely a lot of character for those who aren't too picky about a place to sleep for the night. Overall, it worked for us and our budget but if you're looking for comfort at least pick the rooms at the front of the building rather than the interior.

After several short stays at the Belmar, this past winter we decided to stay for five months.
We were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is old, yes there are parts that desperately need repair, but the suites on our floor are all in good repair and very comfortable. We have a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, which are all very serviceable.
The value is incredible, the location right in the centre of the old historic zone, across the street from the beach ris wonderful. All the surrounding buildings are so interesting, with an old world European charm to them. Convenient restaurants just outside the front entrance, the market within walking distance, as is great entertainment.
However the best part of the Belmar is the staff. From Alicia at the front desk, to the maids, to the fellows who seem to do everything, they are the most wonderful crew. As to security, we have had staff in and out of our suite on several occasions, sometimes when we could not be there and have never had any problems.
We have already reserved for next year and will return as long as we can.

Room Tip: When you reserve, ask for patio rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors.

Realtors advertise Location! Location! Location! and the Hotel Belmar has it! It is the oldest beach hotel in Mazatlan, located in the old historic district. I'm not sure how many stars the Belmar would have, it is old, worn around the edges, and badly needs upgrading. That said, the location can't be beat, the staff are friendly and helpful, Alicia on the front desk is fabulous, and some of the rooms are really quite nice. I'd recommend the patio rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors. Ask to see some rooms before you take one and if possible you will be given a choice. And yes, the beds are hard, as it seems most beds are in Mexico. We put foam on ours. There are a number of restaurants just outside the main entrance, secure parking is available, and you are within easy walking distance of the mercado, Plazuela Machada with all it's restaurants and entertainment, and Teatro Angela Peraulta (a must see). There are long term departamentos with kitchens in various parts of the hotel. These are hard to get into as those of us who stay there long term usually return every year. The units are not great but most of us have fixed things up a little every year and are very comfortable. We have spent the last 7 winters in Hotel Belmar and at no time have had any security concerns.

Room Tip: Patio rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors are the best. The ocean rooms with balconies are older and can be noisy but some people really like them.

I love staying in historic old hotels with lots of character. This was to be our last night in Mexico before flying back to LAX. I chose this hotel for its location and history, but I didn't expect it to be in this bad of shape. Consider this place a shipwreck on the beach, it should be towed out to open water and sunk with a torpedo. The place hasn't been renovated in say 40 years and that is not an exaggeration. The furniture is old, the beds are hard, the place is very dusty and rusty, and the black and white television only received one channel. There is no need to lock your door because someone can just lean against it and it will open. Don't worry no one will break into your room because they must figure you don't have any money because you are staying here. The bathroom door didn't have a handle and it wouldn't stay closed. This hotel gets one star, but 5 stars for the price $30USD, staff, location, view from our room, ocean waves crashing while you sleep, and the evening sidewalk ambiance.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room

I recently visited the Belmar Hotel in Mazatlan. I had read some stories about it being a real jewel back in the 40s and 50s. It was a place where Hollywood greats hung out like John Wayne. It's also reputed to be haunted which is the reason I had to go see. We stopped by about midday and they were just opening up the bar for business. I asked the bartender about the hauntings and she told me the stories of the little girl on the second floor and apparitions that had been seen by the pool. My friends and I took a table in the shaded area in front of the hotel and ordered some beers. It's true this hotel has seen better days it's in need of paint and plaster and there was some construction going on while we were there. But you can see it had its glory days of the past. It's situated on a nice piece of beach and the art district near old town. It is a very pleasant place to sit out for an afternoon. Although we did not find any ghosts or apparitions while we were there we did have a very nice time. I understand rooms rent for about 55 pesos a night not a bad deal but I'm sure you get what you pay for. For me it was just fun to belly up to the bar were John Wayne once drank his beer. I hope to get back to visit the Belmar and I hope the renovation goes well. Thanks to the bartender who made our afternoon pleasant.

Room Tip: A good place on a budget, otherwise keep looking.
