Hotel Maria de la Luz has its pros and cons. The biggest pro, by far, is its perfect location, right on the corner of the main square. From the rooftop you can get good views of the nearby cathedral and other buildings surrounding the square. Another pro is that the rooms are clean. They also have air conditioning and small televisions (we didn't have a remote, though). Breakfast, which is quite good and includes bread, pancakes, french toast, eggs, sausage, coffee, juice and fruit (if you dare), is included in the room price.

As for the cons: a plaque in the hotel entrance states that it was built in 1970; from the looks of the exterior and the rooms themselves, not much has changed since then. The beds are old and uncomfortable, the showers only have hot water when it suits them, and the light fixtures need updating-- you're more likely to get light from the bright neon lights outside the rooms than from anything within. Another con-- although the hotel pool looks nice from a distance, it's pretty dirty-- we got in and out fast. There's also no place to sit near the pool.

For the price ($45 US), it's probably not worth it. Other hotels in town are reasonably priced and look nicer.
