Close to ADO bus depot, big rooms, bit unsecure
Reviewed 4 February, 2015
The hotel was booked last minute for an early bus ride at ADO bus terminal. It worked well for us being about a 2 minute easy walk to the terminal. It was reasonably priced and fitted 5 of us well. The tv was good and it had a dining area. we didn't feel compleat safe as the security on the rooms was a bit lacking but I would still recomend for a cheap stay close to bus stop.
To be avoided

A dishonest staff who offer rooms for 50 dollars without hot water and not telling the customer that there is no hot water. We told them that we needed the hot water badly after a diving day and swimming in salted water. They told us there was no hot water available whatsoever. We decided to leave and get our money back, to no avail. They told us we were troublesome and there would be hot water early the next morning, which of course didn't happen. GO ELSEWHERE , there are tons of hotels around anyway.
Sparkling Clean and Convenient!

My husband and I stumbled on this purple painted hotel after being turned away from Los Girasoles (despite our reservation). What a find Hotel Cotty is! The rooms are set back from the street, so it was very quiet. Our large room was sparkling clean with nice tile floors and colorful linens. There was plenty of room for luggage, even a small desk for our laptop. The room had A/C and a large flat-screen TV, and the bathroom even had a tub! (albeit a bit stained).
At $500 pesos/night for two and just two blocks down Av. Uxmal from the ADO bus terminal, this hotel is a winner.
Ok for bus transfer layover nite

Landed in Cancun airport and took the ADO bus from Term 2 (ticket counter in Term 3, cost 3.00, free shuttle avail from Intnl Term 3 to bus to downtown) Was leaving next morning on a bus to Merida and needed a hotel near bus station. Walked out bus term, made a left and then a right onto UXMAL Ave, and found the Hotel Cotty a block away. No res, they had lots of rooms. Posted rate was about 40.00, but w/out any haggling, they charged me 31.00 (406 pesos mx) for one person.
From the outside the place looks dumpy, but the rooms were clean, had AC, Cable TV, full bathroom, ok beds, all basic. Note that some rooms are dark w/ one little window, rooms across the hall have a small terrace. It is noisy at nite from the nearby club, bring earplugs if you get one of the rooms w/ the terrace facing the clubs. Squeamish divas look elsewhere!
If you just need a cheap place to sleep b/f getting on a bus, this is an OK option. There are alot of hotels in the area., and an option is to store your luggage at the bus station for an hour and go find one.
Nearby is a little restaurant/bar district for food and drinks (out door, make left, then left again)
Downtown Cancun Dirt Cheap
Reviewed 7 May, 2008
First of all the photo which appears in the only other review of this hotel is not accurate. I don't know where it was taken, but it's certainly not the Hotel Cotty.
Cotty will take reservations online through their dedicated website. I've learned it's far less expensive to simply show up in the lobby though. $58 a night online or $42 without reservations. The Cancun bus station is right across the street which means two things. It's a super convenient spot to land for an evening before continuing onto further travels and it can be loud. Really loud. So bloody loud in fact, that the low end from the night clubs a few blocks away actually shakes the very foundation of the place. But, that's the sacrifice for dirt cheap.
Some of the rooms are better kept than others, but if you anticipate a typical Mexico budget hotel which is slighty run down than you won't be surprised.
It's convenient, cheap and well located for an early departure from the bus station. Be careful crossing Uxmal Blvd. or the contents of your luggage will be yard sale fodder.
There's also an Oxxo 24 hour store a block away for stocking up on last minute travel tidbits.
