HOJO is maybe one of the best choices if not the best for Loja. It's located in a nice and safe area. The service was really good and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast is OK. Room service was fast. Prices are very reasonable. I will definitely come back to this hotel

I was unexpectedly booked into the Howard Johnson on a business trip, and was pleased with the experience. The staff is polite and friendly, the room was clean and cleaned nicely every day, and the bathroom was huge (not sure if I needed it to be so big, but the large bath was a nice addition). Everything worked well except... More

Im not certain how to review this hotel. When checking in we asked if there were any upgrades available. This created a visit by the clerk to the manager. We did receive an upgrade but I feel that because we paid with points the upgrade cost more than normal. The room and the view however were stunning! Frankly once we... More

Can't remember the last time I stayed in - or even saw an actual "HoJo" but we were glad we stayed in this one. We were only there for one night en route to other places so we didn't spent a lot of time using facilities/on-site restaurant and what not... but it worked great for our purposes. Clean, modern room;... More

This is a very nice hotel where I have often stayed for university business at UTPL and staff try very hard to be helpful. The food is excellent, although expensive compared to other choices. Cautions on expectations are worth noting. First, the pool is not open in the daytime and is often closed for parties or not opened on schedule.... More

Howard Johnson is just the best hotel you can find in Loja. Or at least one of the best. I stayed at 4 different hotels and this was definitely the best. Obviously a lot more expensive than others, but it was worth every dollar. I will certainly go back there whenever I need to.

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.
