“Good mid-range choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Its a little difficult to find if arriving by car as the hotel rooms are above a small shopping center and the reception area is only one of the 'store-fronts'. However, the rooms are nicely appointed and the 'free breakfast' was delicious and professionally served. The airport shuttle service for our friends who were departing back to the States was timely and efficient.

I flew into Guatemala City apprehensively, at the start of my motorcycle trip from Guatemala to Argentina. To my pleasant surprise I was met at the airport by the Howard Johnson driver with my name on a card.which I hadn't even requested. He took me to this wonderfull hotel, conveniently located for the airport and also for the city itself. There followed a very relaxed stay in a good standard hotel, beautifully furnished and with friendly, efficient and helpfull staff. Breakfast was a delight in their busy restaurant with plenty of local business people also dining, which speaks for itself. This is a great little hotel and I highly recommend it.

First of I would like to thank Ceasar Rojas (manger) he personally picked my wife and I from airport (they provide a shuttle service to and from at no extra cost) he was very pleasant to talk to, and cominucated very well in English! Once arrived at the hotel we couldn't belive how beautiful it is definitely a 5 star experience!!
Every morning we were given purified water bottles (complementary), and a excellent breakfast; Steven one of the waiters that took care of us every morning was very helpful and friendly along side the others that work in the resturant.
Over all I have to say this HoJo is by far the best experience I have had!! Rooms are always clean, staff bends over backwards to make your stay the best!
THANKS TO ALL!!!

As our flight into Guatemala arrived at 10:00 p.m., we just needed a simple and close hotel to stay at before our 6:00 a.m. flight to Flores the following morning. We also wanted something reliable. The hotel also provided complimentary transportation to and from the airport, which was a big plus for us.

The room was small, but clean and quaint. The front desk was helpful (no problem with the wakeup call) and we were given a complimentary bottle of bottle of water (the only hotel during our entire trip that did that), which we used to brush our teeth and for some drinking. We could have paid less at another hotel. but we wanted to start our trip on the right foot and this hotel gave us that.

We stayed here on two occasions on our recent trip to Guatemala because it is only 10 minutes from the airport. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The attached restaurant was excellent. On first arrival we were suprised by finding armed security guards (shotguns) stationed at the entrance but this common place throught the city. Staff were very accommodating and professional.

I have stayed in a few hotels on my visits to Guatemala. Howard Johnson in Guate, City has been the absolute BEST!!! This hotel has every amenity you could imagine. The free breakfast is at Geneva Coffee house which is on sight and it is amazing. A FULL breakfast that you chose off they menu. They do not have refrigerators in the room that was the ONLY disappointment I found! Their staff was AMAZING as well!!! Just booked another room for my visit in June!!!

We are five hours by bus from Guatemala City and needed a place to stay overnight before meeting a relative who was flying in from the states the next day. After reading the reviews on the Howard Johnson Inn, we decided to give it a try. The staff was exceptional in every way, from the manager, who spoke perfect English and was so kind and helpful, to the driver of the courtesy van who took us to the airport and waited patiently for our sister to arrive, to the maid who graciously brought us extra pillows. With a free courtesy van to the airport and later the bus station, an excellent free breakfast with full choice of the menu, and a clean, comfortable room, we felt we got much more than our money's worth.

Room Tip: Rooms on the outside are a little brighter with large windows.
