There are already plenty of reviews here mentioning the room cleanliness, low/reasonable prices, and outstanding location in Gracias. I have been a fan of the hotel for 10 years and keep coming back. One thing no reviewers mention is the secure parking. This probably is not important to those that arrive by bus, but we drive our own car to Gracias and like to know it's safely parked when we're not using it.
While in Gracias, tour the town, but don't miss the thermal springs/baths that are about 4km south. Surely a taxi from town will take you there for very little cost, There is also a bus stop on the south side of town that would probably work, or even hike there (for the ambitious). Best time to go is during the week; avoid the weekends. At times we've had the entire place nearly all to ourselves. Entrance fee is less than $2. It's really a great place to spend several hours soaking in the hot water pools.
Dining in Gracias is not very good. In fact, we've had few good meals in Honduras with the outstanding exception of Don Udos (Copan Ruins and San Pedro Sula). The restaurant at Guancascos is about as good as any in town. Ask around and explore.
