“acceptable due to limited choices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

rooms without drinking water (at least not from the tap), and no mini bar. There is a mini bar but its empty. wifi is erratic and comes and goes cutting Skype connections all the times. Access to wifi is via passwords given by reception which you must input every time you start browsing. Breakfast is good enough, without being special. generally if visiting for business and you re note interested in the pool or the beach then its acceptable as there are not many choices other than this and the dan.

Because the hotel was round the rooms are triangular, the bathrooms at the sharp end. The bath could be removed and a shower would give more space. Standard for a holiday inn, nothing special. The lobby bar is a good seating area with excelent bar snacks. dont forget to eat early on fridays, its a disappointment when you have not eaten all day due to working and find no hot food available

room was generally clean, but only bed cover was not clean. View was great. Food was delicious.
the worst thing was that A/C was not working. I asked it but they said it is not working systematically because of the current temperature. So it was a little problem.

Room Tip: good view, nice stay to place, quite hotel, smiling service

I was there for a business trip so did not have much time for the outside of the hotel but overall it was clean, good service and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is a full spread and the one dinner I had there had everything you could hope for. The staff were very helpful, informative and polite. Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: The higher the better as one night people partied in the middle of the hotel where there is a small...

This hotel was really great. All around really.
I checked into the nearby hotel Dan Gardens on Hatayasim Street and hated it, so moved to the HOLIDAY INN and LOVED IT!!

The employees at the front desk were really polite, friendly, helpful, and super informative and accommodating. Specifically, Sarah, Dvora, and Matan we're really impressive and nice. I appreciated their service-oriented approach and loved their attitude about everything; more than willing to help with anything we asked, and seemed eager to make our stay super enjoyable.

DEFINITELY DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE VISITING ASHKELON!!

I just came back from a short stay at this charming hotel, at the ancient seaport city of Ashkelon, located 35 miles (40 Minutes) south of Tel Aviv, Israel, on the Mediterranean coast. I've been there before, I can't help but to state: It's always nice to go back there. In Ashkelon, the mighty figure of Samson comes to life. It was here that Samson slew 30 Philistines in a single bloody scene of the action-packed revenge drama narrated in the Book of Judges. And though Samson did not meet Delilah here, the two have been incorporated into local mythology: Modern Ashkelon has a Samson and Delilah beach promenade, a Delilah beach and a Samson neighborhood. Firstly, the hotel is superbly adjacent to this beach promenade. The blue of the sea marries the gold of sandy beaches and the lush green of date palms. All this, come within walking distance of the hotel. The newly refurbished room, with parquet floor, is large, bright and well decorated. A sunny and big balcony, with a spectacular, unhindered and frontal view of the sea completes this room staying experience. Quiet surroundings, allow you to listen to the waves, breaking on the beach right below. Comfortable beds and Excellency of service. I’m looking forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Try to book a room on the executive floor, which will allow you access to the cozy business lounge.

Business trip in Israel and I stayed in Holiday inn in Ashkelon, south of Tel Aviv. The hotel itself is wonderfull. You have a full blown breakfast, from 15 different salad to variety of cold cuts to pickled veges, bread galore and all you can eat buffet. Best part is part of your room fee. You can order for a fee to include your dinner. The location is walking distance to the huge park over looking the Mediterranean sea where you can walk around for relaxing. My wife and I every evening we sat down in one of the benches with our wine and hummus, cheeses. Their is a restaurant near by walking distance from the hotel w/c is great food and atmosphere/ambiance. Dead sea trip..We started taking the north route and I got lost after three hours. Go back to the hotel and best to take the south route from the hotel and was a pleasure drive. Dead sea is the lowest part of the earth 1600 below sea level. Sat on the sticky salt water (two third is pure salt) and went for a mud bath, its quite an experience. Went to Jerusalem for a day and I will not tell you that experience because you have to do it first hand.
