Yelp review of the Bethlehem Manger Inn

Church Life

I was pretty excited to find a place available given the influx of visitors to Jerusalem last weekend. But Yahweh be praised, we were able to find this shanty little place in the outskirts at the last minute!

I did not expect a reception party but to my surprise we were greeted by 5 hairy she-goats, a couple of mules and like 100 sheep. I had walked all day long and I am literally 9 months preggo about ready to give birth to literally the king of the world and the best they could do was make us sleep on a hay stack in the basement with the rest of the animals.

The basement was humid and smelly, not to mention we were only given 2 oil lamps which made it virtually impossible for us to see. If things couldn’t get any worse I began to have contractions. Literally screaming for help from the manager, I was told that the management was already preoccupied with another customer named “Karen” or something.

Luckily I was able to make it through the night ok and gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

I am guessing that the management caught wind of my numerous complaints and sent an entourage of people to my room showering me with gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh (Thus totally redeeming themselves!)

At the end of the day, I was glad that the hotel was able to more than compensate us for our trouble. Me and my bea were thinking about taking a trip to Egypt or something.
