“Israel by the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

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.

The only thing we disliked in this hotel was a small swimming pool. The hotel has plenty of free space outdoors, and they definitely could offer much larger pool. The parking outside was quite busy on the weekend. The food was good, our room on the 2d floor was very spacious, with a huge balcony. The room has been cleaned every day. If you are in Ashkelon, it's the best hotel to stay in.

This weird building which does not look very well kept from the outside, is a pleasant surprise on the inside. There is a lovely view from every room towards the sea, the rooms are clean, the food was surprisingly good. This isn't a fancy hotel, but a pleasant place to stay.
On the down side - loud air conditioner, crowded pool area.

The Holiday Inn in Ashkelon is a bit tired but homly enough for a short stay. Food is good and the beach is also ok for a swim.

Room Tip: Noisey at weekends to take some trips out.
