You go to Chichi for the market, and the night before you stay in town to avoid the early morning tourist bus rush. There are other things well worth doing in Chichi and I review them elsewhere.
The Santo Tomas can only be described as unusual. Donia Inez has been adding on to this place for years. It goes on and on. Of course there are saints and artifacts all over the place, it's Guatemala.
You must pick your room with some care. DO NOT face the front street or the gas station. Go for 2nd floor in the back. Bikers_Mom covered a lot of what's good. Comfortable king bed, good service, nice (better than nice) fireplace. The bathrooms are awful but it's only for one night.
It and the Mayan Inn are the places where most groups stay so big crowds in the beautiful dinning room for breakfast are a given.
It's not resort living but great for what it is.
