A longtime favorite of international travelers, this family-run spot with a small motel feel is the best budget choice near the ruins. Spartan-ish rooms have hard beds and chunky, colonial-style furniture, but there are also two pools (one with palapas and hammocks) plus a family-style restaurant. The convivial vibe, along with cheap prices, is the big draw here. Free transportation to Chichén Itzá is provided daily. There's a small discount on reservations made online.
