We stayed here two nights. What strikes one on entering the reception area is its rather small size. Our group of 25 arrived with our bags and there was scarcely room to budge!

The bed was very comfy. It is an older hotel but clean. No bread at breakfast even though Passover was finished. Overall the breakfast was really lacking. Did not enjoy it at all. It was surprisingly quiet as well.
It started when we asked the woman (6-7) where to park.... did not mention that we needed to be out of there by 7 AM SO WE RECEIVED A 100 shekel ticket, which we then had to spend an hour finding out how to pay...More
This hotel claims to be 3 star but just about makes it.
It advertises an indoor pool and spa, which is useless for overnight stays, as it's closed from 17:00 to 09:00. Dinner buffet had good food, but it was served just warm. At breakfast...More
The hotel was clean and staff helpful and friendly. Food was poor. The baked potatoes were soggy and the main course for vegetarians was factory produced frozen vegie patties. Breakfast: no oj, instant coffee powder, scrambled eggs had shells in it and staff forgot to...More

We are interested in hiking the easier masada trail (which i believe is the Roman Path?) Google Maps indicates that it's about a 45 minute drive to Masada. I see another road called 3199 and I'm wondering if this is suitable for traveling from Inbar Hotel in Arad to the Roman Path or is the longer road better for traveling?

The road 3199 from Arad to the western side of Massada is the shorter way to Massad and will take about 25 minutes - it is narrow, windy and not very forgiving but if you drive it carefully there is no reason why you should not use it.
3199 takes you to the car park on the Western side of Massada and the trail head of the Roman Ramp path which is the shorter and easier hike up to Massada and that takes about 20 minutes depending on your fitness level. It still involves a pretty steep ascent on a dirt path with lots of steps.
The museum, visitor's center and conveniency stores on the eastern side of Massada are not accessable from the summit unless you go down by foot or cable car but you can easily choose to take the cable car down and then back up to the top before walking back to your car at the trail head.
There is no easy way from the West to the East (or the other way) but that that crosses the summit of Massada. Although distances on the map may look small do not under estimate the distance and difficulty of any hikes in this region.
Depending on where you plan to go after your visit to Massada 3199 could be a good plan. If you are planning on heading to the Dead Sea, or via the Dead Sea, after your visit to Massada then 3199 is the poorer option.
