I arrived after midnight, a single female from USA. I confirmed with the hotel and specifically advised them that I was arriving very late and I must be guaranteed a room. I took a cab from the airport to the hotel, physically and mentally exhausted after a long flight, only to be told by the hotel's front desk that even though I PAID IN FULL, they had NO available rooms for me and they called a hotel a few blocks inland to give me a room!!! I was expected to walk the streets at 1am with my luggage by myself (my first time in the middle east) to an unknown hotel that I wasn't able to check out ahead of time. Upon entering the hotel (unlike the atmosphere the website pix), it has the feel of a youth hostel or YMCA; dingy is putting it mildly. A kid (don't think he was 21) with a bandage on his hand was the only worker available in the small hotel (so much for security). The only thing that saved me from walking out into the middle eastern darkness without a clue was that the hotel lobby had free wi-fi and I opened up my laptop and booked another room with an American hotel instead. A cab was sent to pick me up and bring me safely to the other hotel. An expensive lesson. Even thinking about my experience with Golden Beach MOTEL fills me with tears of rage and disbelief at the helplessness and horror that almost gave me the worst impression of Israel before I even got to see it!
