Tourists come to Gorontalo because they're either going to the Togean Islands or just came from there. We had to spend 2 nights at the New Melati Hotel because we were misinformed about the ferry timetable. (FYI: The Melati staff always know the schedule so if you're still planning your journey, email them, they will tell you what you need to know!)
The hotel is a good place to stay if you have to stay in Gorontalo. The rooms have ac, the breakfast is good and the staff is friendly. The bathrooms are typically Indonesian although they have western toilets.
All in all, if you have to go to Gorontalo, I recommend staying at the New Melati Hotel!
