Checked in quickly. Upgraded to room with no balcony for $50 / night and resort fee $35 / night. Staying for 5 nights I am dreading paying the bill when I check out I already paid over 2000 to be here after a horrible winter for just myself and my daughter. We came to relax by the beach and unwind.... More

The hotel looks nice in the photos but pretty dated. I was quite surprised on how much. That being said the staff is great so it kind of made up for it. Kind of. But the real issue was the hidden costs. The hotel fee.. which I was unaware of. Then the extra fee for paying for a front row... More

We have been going to the TradeWinds for the last four years and the value can't be beat. There are restaurants to fill your every need. From Pizza Hut to upscale dinning and a sports bar, there is no need to leave the resort. All are reasonably priced. There is even and ice cream shop on site. There are tons... More

We checked into Floridays for a 5 night stay and when we pulled in we were very excited and impressed with the front lobby. After that... we booked a room on the pathways to the pool, which doesn't LITERALLY mean on the pathways to the pool, we were on the 2nd floor and my inlaws the 6th floor so the... More

As the Director of Guest Satisfaction please accept my apology for failing to meet your expectations. I've attempted to contact you directly without any correspondence. After reviewing your folio, I see that your in-laws were moved to be closer to you on the second floor. I'm sorry that your standard suites were smaller than expected and you feel that the... More

We asked our travel agent to book us an upscale resort with activities for the kids. This was not upscale. It was dated at best. Security was nice ( we had the pleasure of meeting them after the maid left our door open all day and someone rummaged through our suitcases) but the other staff was cold at best.

Thank you for your positive comments regarding security, however I wish it could have been under other circumstances. After further review it was a relief to now that nothing was missing from your personal items. It was determined that several housekeeping interns working together were assigned that room and apparently the safety latch was positioned to keep the door open.... More

Nice location and the rooms have been updated, but this is a 3-star hotel at best. All rooms enter from the outside, motel-style, and despite updated furnishings the devil is in the details. Paint was cracking and the plumbing in the bathroom felt like it was going to pull out of the wall. When we had hot water, the pressure... More

Please accept my apology for failing to meet your expectations. I would like to explain that by having the outside entrance to most of our suites and guest rooms, actually provides a more enjoyable living room area, maximizing the view from the balcony. Regarding the inconvenience of the hot water, the first rule of thumb is to let the water... More

We decided to stay an extra day in Florida and decided on this resort almost by chance. Great decision. Very courteous staff at registration, and 5 people working desk so you don't have to wait long. Private parking with security. Room great. Multiple pools in addition to ocean. Slides on beach, great restaurants, and clean facilities. My only regret is... More

This was our fourth consecutive year (2011-2014) of spending Spring Break week at Tradewinds. After spending two previous trips in the Clearwater area, we were looking for something less crowded and decided to give the St Pete Beach area a try. After our first visit to Tradewinds we were hooked, both with the resort and the area. Our children always... More
