We are planning a trip from Nogales, Az to Guadalajara, Mexico and plan to stop in Obregon and Mazatlan. Does anyone know which places will allow two dogs? Thank you.

Look here: http://gringodog.home.comcast.net/pet-friendly.htm

Also Best Western Hotels in Mexico say pets are welcome.

There are several in Maz. Don't know about Obregon, but thirty miles away is the Best Western del Rio in Navajoa. We and others have stayed there with pets (our two dogs and a cat). It is a very nice motel with a good restaurant and very nice grounds. I'm not sure about cost. It seems to change from time to time. We've paid from $60 to $85 US. It is listed in Rolly's reference above.

If you don't mind a little extra travel, Alamos, thirty miles east of Navajoa is a great little town and has at least one very nice pet friendly B&B.

A bit short of there, but still not a bad day's drive from Maz is the Hotel Playa de Cortez on the outskirts of Guaymas. Built in 1936 by the SP Railroad as a resort hotel, it is a splendid wreck that retains some of its splendor, though it has definetely seen better days. Rates vary between the week-end and midweek, and are somewhere in the $55-70 range. It has a bar and restaurant and wonderful grounds - including an RV section.

At least some of the places in Maz are also listed in the reference from Rolly. We have stayed at the Hotel Los Arcos. It is on the beach, a fairly nice but not spectacular hotel, and they charge for the pets. It is quite pricy for the quality of the accommodations, but you do what you have to do when traveling with pets.

This has been discussed extensively in the past. Check "search String" for the past year for other suggestions.

I notice taht I failed to mention that it is a good idea to have reservations at the Hotel Los Arcos in Maz. It may not be necessary during the summer, but we were not able to stay there on one trip and ended up at the Hotel San Diego (at the intersection where one hits the beach when driving into town from elsewhere - hundreds of cheap rooms), where we had to beg them to allow us to stay with our pets.

Are you wanting to only spend a night in each place as you travel through? If this is the case then the moteles de paso are the way to go when you have a pet. They are the motels you see along the highways with high walls, and private looking entrances which you drive through and then into a private garage. Your vehicle contents are safe and the pets will come inside the room with you. There are several on the outskirts of Mazatlan which are modern, inexpensive, clean, and well-kept. Most of the folks driving from north of the border to Mazatlan with their pets use these motels.

Many split the journey at Navajoa where the El Rancho Motel is popular and easy to locate. (It's not a motel de paso.) We´ve stayed there, but didn't have a pet with us. I do recall others having trouble finding a pet friendly hotel in the city of Navajoa.

As to the comment in this thread about Mazatlan maybe not needing reservations in the summer, this may only be true if it is May, September or October because summer months are packed with vacationing Mexicans from inland. The tour buses and cars arrive in droves from other cities in Mexico.
