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. 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.

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
