I stayed at the Howard Johnson Loja property for business. The hotel was very accommodating, with a wonderful staff, comfortable room and an excellent breakfast available in the morning with traditional Ecuadorean cuisine. Will definitely stay here again when in Loja for business!

I stayed a week at the Howard Johnson. It was paid for by my work, so I offer no comment whatsoever about value for money. My stay began with an airport transfer over the valley wall from the airport in Catamayo. My driver was friendly and informative, and gave me a great start to Loja. My room was excellent; comfortable,... More

This hotel is probably what better than any Howard Johnson I would experience in the USA. The rooms were clean and nice, the breakfast buffet was enough to keep us full all day with so many different choices of food. Breakfast is included with stay. We bought a prepaid rate and it said no date change, I had to change... More

I have to wholeheartedly agree with Alan from Valrico, FL, the hotel and staff at HOJO in Loja, Ecuador were awesome. When I needed assistance, personnel from the hotel took care of my needs and the attention that the general manager provided was.....again, AWESOME! Thank you for the kindness and assistance. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and... More

Although a bit pricey for Loja it's good value for money when put into international standards. Very modern, with excellent facilities and great food. Quiet at night. Nice gym/swimming pool, although it only opens in the afternoon.

We stayed one evening in the Loja HOJO and I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the staff and the quality of the room. Both very much met our expectations. The breakfast buffet, included in the rate, was excellent. As noted by one of the other reviewers, there is no AC, but opening a window allows a bit of... More

Stay here for three days and had an awesome time. The service is as you could expect Freon the Howard Johnson chain. The room got everything you need and more although there could add the Pringles for an afternoon snack.

Excellent hotel, in general Hojo's in Ecuador are way much better than in the US!. Hojo Loja has big rooms, comfortable beds, nice clean bedding. There's no A/C in the rooms but you can open the window to get some fresh air. The hotel is smoke free. Buffet breakfast is included. I would definitely go back!
