We stayed 2 nights here so we could see Masada and we were very pleased with our choice. The location is in a residential area so it was nice and quiet and the owner was more than helpful when it came to finding restaurants and ATMs. The breakfast is great and the whole place is very clean. We really enjoyed our stay.
If you are intending to visit the site of Masada for a full day this hotel is closer to the west entrace (a walk up the Roman ramp) which actually works out better. We walked up the ramp in the morning, took the cable car to the visitor's center and eating area at noon, took the cable car back up after lunch, and then walked down later that day. If you drive all the way to the east entrance you will not have as much flexibility with time. You will have to walk up a much steeper and longer path or take the cable car. Once up at the site eating is not allowed so once you go back down you will probably not want to go back up - this limits your visit to half a day.
