ClayDon Motor Lodge?




Does anyone recall where the ClayDon Motor Lodge used to be? I remember going there many years ago as a child. We're just now returning to OBX with children of our own and was curious.

Thanks.

Looks like it was destroyed during a storm in 1989.

I found that article too, but I was looking for an address or location. I wanted to see what's there now vs. 30 years ago!

Thanks!

It would have been right around MP 6.5 - sorry, but when I lived there there weren't "addresses" just MP markers - but that should help.


RE: ClayDon Motor Lodge?




Thanks. I'll take a look when we're there!

I was down right after that storm in the spring and stayed in Kitty Hawk directly behind John's Drive In. I was much younger. I remember my friend and I climbed into one of the cottages that had been flipped on its side. I wish I had pictures. It was so sad seeing the kitchen cabinets on the ceiling.

The only old addresses I can find are a PO Box #, and MP 6, Beach Road, KDH.
There is an old postcard picturing it if you search the amazon book for outer banks in vintage postcards. It might give you a point of reference anyway.
