Bed and Breakfasts
Mazatlan accommodations also include smaller inns and bed & breakfasts. These provide a smaller and more intimate setting and most have a full breakfast included.
The prices are generally lower than hotels and they are usually located in the actual city of Mazatlan. This allows you to get more familiar with the area. However, the location might not be as desirable as an ocean front hotel. Check out the location of the hotels before choosing one simply on price.
Also, many bed and breakfasts might have stricter rules on guests in order to prevent noise. Check with the hotel and ask about any rules.
A cruise ship is another choice for a Mazatlan accommodation. Your room is included in your vacation and you get the opportunity to visit other ports of call without having to constantly unpack upon arrival.
