Not knowing what to expect in a foreign country, we were a little uneasy, especially arriving at midnight. The staff was very helpful, and understood how tired we were. Got our room right away, and we were very surprised and relieved, it was great. We had hot fresh apple cider right in the lobby, with real apple pieces in it...delicious. the bed was heavenly. Our stay there was not long, but we did stay there on our return also, and we have made our reservations there for our future trip to Ecuador this fall! Thanks Howard Johnsons!
I stayed there for 5 weeks on business. It is close to the airport (4 minutes). Rooms are good. Security is good. 24 hour room service. For Internet I used a cable in the room. The bar and restaurant staff are very friendly (I used to spend time with them teaching them English). \n\nIf you are here for a long stay like me then I went to the Sheriton and Hilton in the evening. Both hotels have a sushi bar and live entertainment which the Howard Johnson does not have.\n\nYou can walk to the Sheraton (5 minutes) and local restaurants (2 minutes). The Mal de Sol is only 5 minutes walk away. The Hilton is a $2 taxi ride away.
