Should I Spend Donuts On the Bethlehem Inn?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Bethlehem Inn to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons to determine if there’s room in your Springfield for this Inn…

Building/Decoration: Bethlehem Inn
Donut Cost: 60 Donuts
$135, 15xp,4hrs
Indolence +20
Can Be Placed:

Leaves stores December 26th

-Comes with a short, 2 part, questline
-Moe has a permanent 4hr task there to “Overcharge Pilgrims”

-Pricey for a building, compared to other buildings we’ve seen with this event

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I’m not enamored by this one.  I feel like the price tag is too hefty for what it is/does.  I’d take a pass at this one.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, this may be one I actually pass on for this event. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at the questline…

Bethlehem Inn Pt. 1
Auto starts

Moe: What’s happened to this place? We used to be packed. Most nights, there was no room at the inn. ‘Specially around the holidays.
Ned: Hey diddily, Innkeep-arino! Me and the boys heard this was the official birthplace of Jesus!
Moe: *lying* Uh, yeah, sure is! Built in 1954. Jesus was one of our first customers. Nice kid. You could tell from day one he was cool.
Ned: I don’t suppose your manger is available tonight?
Moe: Sadly, no. It burned down in the eighties.
Ned: Was it… the Romans?
Moe: Uh, yeah, sure. But listen, if you’re looking for lousy, barn-like accommodations, you’re in luck! I got lotsa rooms, every one worse than the dirtiest manger!
Ned: Yes, please! We want the same biting cold and filthy straw that Mary and Joseph had.
Moe: You’ll get our most decrepit room. It’s, uh, a little more expensive, of course...
Make Moe Overcharge Pilgrims- 
4hrs, Earns $260, 70xp
Moe: Right this way, here’s your room.
Todd: Daddy, why is there a kitty biting my toes?
Rod: *shrieks* That’s not a kitty! That’s a rat!
Moe: The VERY SAME rat that nibbled on Jesus’ little piggies. His name’s Bitey. Jesus came up with that.
Ned: What an honor! Eh, boys?

Bethlehem Inn Pt. 2
Auto starts

Moe: ‘Night, all. Do let the bedbugs bite. I mean, if you try to stop them, they get angry and really tear you apart.
Todd: Daddy, where are all the sheep and camels?
Ned: That’s right. This can’t be an authentic Baby Jesus Experience unless we’re kept up half the night by the sounds of God’s creatures.
Moe: *sigh* What I won’t do for a buck…
Make Moe Imitate Barn Animals Count 8hrs, Earns $420, 105xp
Moe: I hope you enjoyed your stay at the Bethlehem Inn, come back real soon.
Ned: It was very authentic. I haven’t slept that badly in years. Tell me something — did Jesus or his folks use the vibrating mattress in that room?
Moe: Of course. Yeah. Why not?
Ned: Hallelujah.

  1. I’m passing on most of the buildings even though I’ve sprung for all of the characters. I figure the buildings will be back in the not too distant future in a box with other random buildings and I’ll pick them up then.

  2. I might get it to place with the Rigellian manger.

  3. I just recently rebooted my Praiseland so this was a quick pick up for me, looks good with the stable and (unfortunately always empty) nativity scene. Good dialogue, fun animation, even if Moe is a little over extended, especially now that I have Moe’s Express, at least not as bad as the Timberlog having yet another task for just Homer.

    This is a win for me. Personally, I wholeheartedly support a ‘Holy’ CHRISTmas as the Reason for the Season. I worked in to my Biblical themed area: Noah’s Ark, The Stable, the Temple, Burning Bush, Tree of Knowledge…..
    Christmas Blessings Tappers! RevJRO, Janice.

  5. It’s a nice building but i pass. I’m running low on donuts.

  6. Hey Alissa, guess you just wanted to test us if we read your posts carefully 😉 The questline goes “Make Mr.Burns answer the igloo door”? Hm…😉

  7. I wonder if the task “Overcharge Pilgrims” was a tongue-in-cheek acceptance of what the item does in real life to tappers?

  8. Bethlehem Inn

    One too many Hotels, Motels, etc …. it’s the sort of redundancy I think EA should cease with, especially when there isn’t a permanent Task for more than one Character (I’m passing as a Kem Farmer because even I thought what EA wants is kinda steep!) 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Feliz Navidad Amigos 🦌❄️🎅⛄🎄

  9. Gonna get this for my town. whoo hoo. It’s adorable.

  10. Thanks Alissa! This is a big pass for me too 🤐

  11. Pass. The Diner is better but still haven’t decided to buy it yet.

    I don’t think it would be a good fit in my town. Can’t think of what it would fit with so it’s going to be a miss for me

  13. Pass ⛄⛄⛄⛄⛄⛄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎅🤶🎁🎁🎁
