Witnesses hiding at the hotel said the attack lasted just a minute.
Hours before the attack, police had found a bag containing at least three dismembered bodies, local news reported.
It is unclear who is behind the attack.
Authorities say the area is known to the Santa Rosa de Lima cartel, a gang dedicated to stealing fuel.
Their leader was recently captured and the Jalisco New Generation Cartel seized the area, leading to an increase in violence.
