There is a lot of hotels in Ecuador, in smaller and bigger places. The best is to book in advance. Especially for holidays when the Ecuadorians themselves are travelling.
What can you get and how much does it cost?
Prices vary and what you get depends on local conditions. In my experience, you will get a clean room and sheets for 10 dollars and up. For 30-40 dollars you will find something centrally located. If you pay more than 70 dollars, there will be an uniformed person who opens your door when you get out of the cab.
If you drive along the road you will see a lot of motels. Keep in mind that some of these are love hotels, a place young lovers choose to have some quality time without other family members for a couple of hours.
There are also places that offer accommodation in combination with outdoor activities, like haciendas and jungle lodges.
