When we booked the Metula Alaska Inn for the festive holiday in Shavuot we were promised the best. A lavish executive room with lots of windows and a wide balcony with breathtaking view. We agreed to pay more for this marvelous dream. The hotel sales person over the phone did a great job. Indeed, when we arrived for our two night's vacation, the promise became reality. Forget the over due sheets and blankets that most people willing to pay 150 Euro for that room per night will never use at home. Or the cheap soap and the impossible thin towels. The view was magnificent and we loved the room.
Hmmmm….at 6 a.m we woke up with a beam of sunlight and the room was in total day light. We tried to find the shatters on the endless windows and go back to sleep. We couldn't find them, as they didn't exist. That was a bummer. Late in the morning we told the manager of this malfunction. He reacted that none of the guests ever complain about it and offered to cover the windows with blankets. A workman came in the afternoon and worked hard to solve the problem and there faded our afternoon nap.
The second night was great. Upon checkout there was no one at reception. The manager waved us goodbye from the coffee bar across the lobby apologizing for our misfortune. No compensation was offered and no invoice was given also for our 300 Euros paid in Israeli Shekels.
I wonder what Sarah Palin would have said, experiencing a similar vacation in a hotel carry the name of the state of Alaska.
