3rd Busiest September in our History
Here at The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort and spa, we have been very busy this year. In 2 different months this year, we set records for being the busiest ever in our 15 years of being open. The other months of 2009 have also been very busy. For instance this September was our 3rd busiest September. All in all 2009 will be a good year for us.
Now we have worked harder than we ever have in our lives to stay busy. Where last year I used to work 60 hours a week, I now work about 75 hours a week. And Mary Clare is probably working 60 hours a week.
But, it is better to be popular than not popular enough.
The reason I posted this is in yesterday's local newspaper, the Desert Sun, they wrote an article saying occupancy rates were down in Palm Springs. They were down 19.2% in September compared to last year. All year long I have heard how most hoteliers are just not staying busy.
We are very fortunate to have such loyal guests. However, sadly many have lost jobs. We have had more cancellations this year than ever before. So I have to do more marketing. Also guests who used to stay 2 weeks, to save money cut back to 1 week or 10 days.
I read that a reporter was at a local nude place and wrote he was the only person there midweek. I also read tripadvisor reports about other nudist resorts and read where people write they were the only couple or maybe there were just a few couples at other nudist resorts midweek. Whereas we are very busy 7 days a week, not just Saturday nights like many places.
All nudist resorts are different. Just because we are busy and popular does not mean most others are also busy. If you like to meet nice people, we are the place to stay!
Nudist resorts are not like typical hotels like Hilton's or Marriott's where you are just looking for a place to put your head for the night. Vacationing at nudist resorts should be a fun experience. The expression social nudist is very true. That's why most people love vacationing at nudist resorts so much. You get to meet the best people from around the world and become friends.
Going to a nudist resort where you are the only person there is pretty boring. It's like nude sunbathing in your own back yard. You are missing out on the experience of being around other like minded people. It's like going to a party, but going into a room at the party all by yourself. You miss out on all the fun.
So support your local nudist resorts. Vacation at them. I thank everyone for your great support at our resort.
And if you are taking a vacation or staying midweek, we are the place to stay in the Western US.
