Cape Hatteras Motel has taken a few hits this year. Mother Nature was not always kind. But there have been so many other positives to celebrate, we felt this week more than ever was the right time to express our thanks!
First, we want to thank all of our guests. We thank our loyal guests who have returned year after year, sometimes over generations, because our motel holds special memories for you and your family. We thank our new guests who decided to give us a try and found a real love for our beach, our sunrises, and even our rocking chairs. We are grateful for every guest who came to our motel and indeed, traveled to Hatteras Island, because of who we are and what we have to offer, and did not complain because of what we don’t have or what we don’t offer. It is true that Hatteras isn’t for everyone. We are grateful for all of our guests who “get OBX” and wouldn’t go anywhere else!
We are thankful that beach re-nourishment will finally be on the way for 2017. We are thankful for a wonderful staff who are complimented regularly by our guests on how they go the extra mile to make someone’s vacation extra special, or how they handle problems and work to make things right.
We are thankful for our Facebook audience which has grown by leaps and bounds this year and has provided us with tremendous support during Hermine and Matthew. We know you really care about what happens to us way out here! We are thankful for guests who visit with us in the months from September through May, and have the opportunity to experience the Outer Banks in all of the seasons of the year beyond the summer.
We thank the local businesses who we support and who in turn support us. In a small community this reciprocity is vital. And we thank all of our service providers and vendors who work with us during the year, and who, in the midst of a busy season, we sometimes forget to thank.
We wish you all a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving, and we look forward to hosting you again very soon.
