When in Culiacan we either stay here at the Hotel San Marcos or at the San Luis Lindavista, but only if the Master Suite is available. The San Marcos has an elegant lobby and well appointed rooms and is probably the cleanest and best quality hotel you are going to find in Culiacan. It's location is centralized and near Catedral....

one of the worst hotel i have ever been. Everything is a mass: first room they gave me was not ready and it was 6:30 pm. Second room with more than 30 y. o.. No TV remote control and air conditioner sounds like an airplane. Really bad experience. Never come back again.

This hotel got great reviews but I found it very tacky, noisy, and very bland. The service was excellent, and the breakfast was good. We had a very bad experience with the climate control.

Well we had a pleasant stay overall. The customer service was very good. The price is decent for the hotel as it is outdated and we stayed in a suite which was small and the pictures looked different. But overall the hotel was used only to sleep because we didn't visit there free buffet as we got up late lol.

San Marcos is a clean, no muss, no fuss hotel. For a small amount I got a clean and comfortable bed, a shower with good shower pressure and big towels. I did not eat at the restaurant or use any of the facilities.

Rooms are okay for the price, the lobby has a cool huge statue of a naked woman and a big painting with a man and women reaching for the heights. There was an issue with the restaurant however.
