“All together not bad,could be much better..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

Am at the hotel now. I was here several times in the past. It seems to me that the staff needs a reminder to give guests elementary courtesy, at first much worse than the average Israeli directness: I ordered by internet a non-smoking room and the initial room was full of smoke. The receptionist was very rude, mabye had a bad day, but in spite of that eventually brought me to a very nice room with a poool view.
Also the dining room staff need some "help": I noticed one of the staff pick his nose and handle a bagful of
rolls. When confronted he simply lied and denied.
The lifeguard at the pool, a really lovely pool, turned up the music volume to an unbearable level and only after repeated complaints to the management he lowered the noise to a level that enabled conversation. BTW not a single guest requested the loud volume, the lifeguard was simply bored...
In spite of theses complaints it is a very nice, not too expensive place in Eilat, right next to the ice-mall and other attractions and worth coming to if, and only if, you stand up for your rights as a guest. My reservation at the hotel is between 1-4 May and I am writing this reveiw during my stay which will end tommorow.

Wife and I go down to eilat at least twice a year , this trip was spontaneous , last minute
Therefore The Ameicana was our only option,
We arived at approx 23:00 and were "Greeted" by a grumpy receptionist, who more or less just shoved over the counter the the Check In forms, wtihout even saying "Good Evening" or something similar
Our room looked like and old garden shed , that needed painting
The breakfast was poor , the stewards wore stained uniforms adding to our general distaste
The mattresses on the pool deck chairs were torn ,and filthy
The Photos do not refelct the the dirt and neglect
Some say, that people who write negative feedbacks on this site maybe porblematicfrom the start or too fussy, I assure you this is not the case with us,But this hotel was such a disappointment , I felt I had to

The lobby and breakfast were nice but beyond that the place is a dump. The rooms are very dated with worn furnishings. Th pool looks as it was last updated in 1965. The internet worked 1/3 of the time I was there. Traveling by myself it was ok and served it purpose for a inexpensive place to sleep while doing some scuba diving while in Israel/Eliat. But definitely not a place I will seek to visit again. The walls are thin, so expect to hear your neighbors

This hotel with its deceptive "professional " photos of the property is just plain bad in every respect.....surly front desk staff, rooms with furniture that do not look tired but positively exhausted, dirty, stained room carpeting, bathroom tiles stained with dirty grout and every inch of the room desperately in need of a good cleaning at the very least, not to speak of a full renovation. The huge lobby is very sparsely furnished, somewhat dark and as welcoming as a dentist's waiting room.

I was first given a ground floor room where the drapes had to be permanently closed and the room permanently dark unless you did not care about people walking by looking into your room. When I asked for another room I was told I would have to upgrade at a higher room rate. I went back to my room but was so miserable I returned and demanded a room with both privacy and daylight and was grudgingly accommodated at no extra cost.

The description above is of this second room.

Every inch of this property us in need of a good scrub down to remove scrub marks everywhere followed by coat of paint .

Do not waste your money staying at this miserable excuse for a hotel if you possess any self-respect!

Room Tip: At the very least demand a room on the second floor.

The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to the kanyon hakerach (ice mall) as well as bars, restaurants, and several 24-hour convenience stores. Their pool is large and inviting, and breakfasts include every option imaginable!

The rooms were spacious and clean. The air conditioning was most welcome, and we really simply enjoyed this hotel.

Very close to the airport ETH in Eilat, and easy to get there with taxi. Close to the shopping and walking area. There is a big nice pool and the rooms are also okay. Very good wifi access from all areas. They offer an amazing breakfast. Vegetables, salads, cheese, sweets. I heard from local friends that they are even go there for having breakfast.
The staff was well...okay but slow reaction when I asked to fix the sink in my bathroom because a drain blockage the water went out very slow. In the same time I asked to open the safe-box as it was locked too. They could not fix it for me.
Anyhow the hotel is okay, so next time I will go here again.
