I stayed for three nights in July and had a pleasant stay.
The hotel is in a remote neighborhood of Santa Ana. The hotel is good to reach from the main street 121. They should have a sign put up for their hotel at the 121 as it is easy to miss and I didn't see a street sign for Calle Machete. There is a sign for a Berkeley kindergarten that you could follow from 121.
While the neighborhood seemed safe to me they have an electronic gate protecting the parking lot.
The hotel consists of a main building with a restaurant, a 2nd building, a pool and a playground. The buildings have three floors. As mentioned before you can only reach the higher floors through stairs.
I really like the pool as it consists of two parts one with shallow water, good for children that can't swim yet, and a part where you can actually swim. The swim lane was about 10m.
I stayed in the 3rd floor in a basic room. The room was mostly clean. In the bathroom I've seen some small ant-like insects, but for being in a tropical region that seemed negligible. The room had no kitchen devices except for a fridge, which contained some drinks, but was not stuffed with them. So there was still place to put stuff in.
In the room there was also a Sony internet TV, which worked well. The internet at the TV seemed faster than the Wifi, which was rather slow.
I also liked the 2 vacant power outlets next two the bed, that I found very useful and are lacking in many places.
About the construction noise: I've seen some areas where constructions seem to be going on, but didn't see or hear anything going on in the time between Saturday-Tuesday, when I stayed there.
Hotel Luisiana is an intelligently designed clean hotel in a generally quiet neighborhood. For the 35$/night third-party deal I got, I would definitely stay there again.
