They dont bother cleaning or maintaing facilities, all the nice touches are gone :( The breakfast has gone from bearable to dismal and just dont bother going to it. This... More

The name says Howard Johnston, but this property is owned by the Westin Chain. As such, you can expect top accommodations. When we arrived the Bell Caps, Front Desk, and staff were extremely helpful. The room was large and comfortable. The rates were very reasonable, I booked on the Westin website and the rates were about 30% lower than posted... More

At arrival my son had an accident, he got sick for the long hours traveling from Guayaquil (more than 6 hours) and he threw up at the lobby. The staff was very polite to us and helped with emergency laundry service at no extra cost. That was a plus!! The breakfast buffet was fantastic.

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

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.

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.
