I honestly had pretty low expectations considering we got this hotel for $30/night, but they sure did exceeded our expectations! The room was extremely clean, spacious and modern. The WiFi was strong in our room and each room has a Smart TV with Google Apps. Almost all the channels were in Spanish so we resorted to watching videos on YouTube while relaxing in bed at night. There is also a full bottle of wine that costs $12 if you drink it, which isn't to expensive, although we didn't touch it. In the fridge, there is a couple bottles of water and a couple cans of Imperial beer, which we didn't drink as well since they charge extra for it.
There isn't much to do around the hotel area, so expect to either take a taxi to wherever you need to go or drive (if you rented a car). The hotel does has a small pool, which I definitely used to cool off as the weather was quite humid.
There is a small restaurant in the hotel as well with Italian style cooking (the owner is from Italy). The dishes aren't cheap, but they aren't too expensive. The cheap meal option, the fish and fries, would make you think that it is fish and chips. The fish are just fish sticks (probably frozen) , so I was disappointed as I was expecting fish and chips.
Another huge plus (if you're able to actually use it) is that Hotel Luisiana has their own taxi driver. We tried to use it, but he was never around when we needed it. We had a rental car, but didn't want to drive around Santa Ana and San Jose, as the hotel itself is actually quite difficult to find. So heads up if you're driving a rental car to Hotel Luisiana. We thought it was in San Jose, but it's actually in Santa Ana.
Overall, I highly recommend this place due to the low price per night and the extraordinary room!
