Hotel Luisiana
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Santa Ana
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Hotel Luisiana. One of my favorite hotels from any place that I have stayed at around the world.

The hotel has a calm, homey atmosphere from the moment you step into the lobby to the comfortable rooms. Staff was graciously friendly. EVERYTHING was clean during the whole four days of my stay. My room always had new towels, and our beds were made everyday.

The sit-down breakfast was scrumptious. I could choose between continental, Italian, and America. All three types of breakfast were delicious.

Location is not near any touristy attractions, but it's a close walk to many restaurants.

The architecture of the hotel reminded me of Louisiana style buildings in America, so I instantly felt at home in this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. You won't regret your decision.

Hotel Luisiana is a great find. We have friends who have stayed there off and on for different things. We got the package with the breakfast and dinner. They were both very good! We had lost our ids, and they were really good to help us get that taken care of, very responsive to what we needed. Can't speak enough about the food. Very tasty. Staff helpful. Johnathan was great. The tv hooked up to netflix was such a cool thing for my kid. The pool was under construction which was a bummer, but the management offered to let us come back anytime and swim since we missed that opportunity. So, highly reccommend, and get the food! Only thing is its a bit off the beaten path, and not really within walking distance of much unless you really like to walk. If you do, the taco bar is not too far!

We came here by reference of a friend, could hardly believe all the things she had been saying about this hotel....but all was true! Clean, modern, warm, safe, friendly....perfect location for the traveller on his/hers way to/from San José....at an unbelievable rate!! You cannot believe that Luisiana can deliver this quality at these prices! If you book directly online via hoteles.com it is even cheaper. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Book online at hotels.com or hoteles.com for better rates

We stayed at this hotel our first night in Costa Rica and it was just lovely. It was exceptionally clean with a laid-back, Central American charm, spacious rooms, a beautiful, tiled open-style shower in the bathroom, a comfortable bed, air conditioning - everything we needed. I would have absolutely no problem staying here a week. Access is beyond an electronic gate, a nice and secure place to park your vehicle (not that the area demands it.) What interaction we did have with the staff was gracious and positive and helped establish warm feelings for Costa Rica right off the bat. Breakfast was simple and good - wonderful coffee, juice, Nutella on a croissant, and lo and behold, the dining area has shelves lined with glorious fresh pineapples and watermelons - I thought my husband would faint with happiness, as we are deprived of fresh watermelon in all but the warmest months back home. All in all, it was an excellent value

This was a wonderful and unique hotel, a rare experience. Staff always went above and beyond our needs. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, and this was head and shoulders above any competition. I will definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Suites with King Bed are amazing!

I stayed at this hotel for three nights. The rooms were nice and spacious. I had a room with a kitchen. The fridge was not full size it was one of the small ones that fit under a cabinet. Note: if you want a late night snack off of the menu and you order the fish and fries. The fish is fried fish sticks. So if you don't like fish sticks save yourself and grab something on your way back to the hotel. This hotel is about 20 miles from downtown San Jose. You will have to take a taxi or a bus. There is a Papa Johns and grocery stores in walking distance. There are a few local places to eat but I did not try them. The big multiplex mall is about 10 miles away from the hotel. The hotel offer tour recommendations but you may want to book before you leave or when you first arrive to make sure the tour is available. Advice becareful of the taxi you take because they will notice you as a tourist and increase your rate. Make sure the cab has a taxi logo. FYI Costa Rica charges a departure tax when you leave their country I think it was like $27 or $30. So don't spend all of your money. Other than that the hotel was nice and the price was great.

This was my second experience at Hotel Luisiana and it remains a favorite. While our room this time was on the third floor and thus no outside sitting area, the couple who accompanied us had a room on the second floor and a sitting area. We had a wonderful dinner at the hotel restaurant and the absolute favorite entree was the pasta with clam sauce - don't miss it! Computers in each room mean you don't have to bring your own with you and you can call both local and international free from the room - very convenient. Personnel at the reception desk are very helpful. Will continue to stay here when we need a hotel in Santa Ana.

Room Tip: If you value an outside sitting area let them know when you book.
