Everyone's given you great suggestions. From the heart of downtown Patzcuaro, the lake is a 10-minute cab ride. Or about the same time by bus. You'll definitely want to be in the city center.

I'm partial to the Hotel Mansion Iturbe, although the other properties are fine. Unless the city's finished with the sewer line up by the Basilica (and the street was torn up 2 weeks ago), I'd recommend against the Posada de la Salud or the Posada la Basilica, just because of accessibility problems right now.
Other good choices in Patzcuaro which haven't been mentioned are:
La Casa Encantada
Hostal del Valle (a small hotel, not a hostel!)
Another budget favorite of mine in Patzcuaro is Villa Patzcuaro, which is between the lake and the city center. It's quiet, clean, and the owners are delightful folks. The only hitch is that you would be somewhat isolated from the action.
If it's something cozy by the lake, let me recommend the cabanas in Zirahuen, about 30 minutes from Patzcuaro. If you opt to head over there, you will thank me for the recommendation! <g>
