I have spent a lot of time in hotels, but until I stayed at Hotel Santo Thomas I have never seen an owner making the rounds at 7:00 a.m. breakfast to make sure everything was fine with the rooms and to chat with the hotel guests about their travel plans. We had car trouble and Thomas (owner) gave us as much help as he could (we made it to our destination). The front desk staff were also very helpful. For this reason I give the hotel an "excellent" rating instead of a very good. The clean comfortable rooms (no bed bugs), along with a small(ish) pool, weight room, good breakfast, access to parking and reasonable prices make this centrally located hotel well worth staying at. If you are a light sleeper and not used to city noises, bring ear plugs. We found the hotel surprisingly quiet given its location. I would stay here again and I would recommend the hotel to friends and family without hesitation.
