I stayed in many different places during my three months in Bali; several in Kuta. I stayed in hotels of all price ranges and types.
Lusa hotel is an excellent value in a quiet neighborhood. I stayed in the basic (cheapest) room which was fine. The bed was comfortable; the bathroom had some issues that were promptly fixed; linens and towels are changed daily; the fan worked well. The staff - especially the staff who keep the grounds and outside areas and the restaurant staff - are friendly and smiling.
Some of what is written in other reviews - the linens are a bit dingy; there are no screens on the windows; the bathrooms aren't perfect. But for the money I don't think you can do better in Kuta, especially for a longer visit. I stayed at the place across the street for a little bit less, with horrible bathrooms, no pool, no room cleaning service, linens, or even blankets. For just a few dollars more I got a cleaner room, better service, better breakfast, and Wifi (yes - it is slow, but it's free!)
My friend and I were picked up from the airport promptly as promised. The drive back to the hotel took about an hour (traffic due to construction was terrible) but the driver apologized for the long ride and was very friendly.
I will definitely stay here again.
I stayed in two different basic rooms on the west side. They were both quite large, well-furnished...
