Great view of the water which is the Trade Winds best advantage. The rooms are oldy moldy and very dated. Low lifes abound. The staff is very good and tried hard to make the stay pleasant. The pool area was just ok, but the lcker rooms and showers were gross. The hot tub looked diseased. Yuck. The pool attendant discouraged... More

The employees were friendly and the room was clean fresh towels everyday. Nice view of Rockland Harbor. Lighthouse Museum across the street. Great location walking distance from ocean and great restaurants.

My company booked 4 rooms for business. Upon checking in our guys were told they require a $200 deposit because they are a non smoking motel. This was not disclosed during making the reservations. I was contacted by one of my employee who put me on the phone with the night worker. He was the most unprofessional motel employee I... More

I didn't want to pay much for a room so got their cheapest - which is no view, double bed. It's November, cold, and so dark right now I don't care about the view. But the room truly was bad for the money. Ancient furniture, poorly set up, tiny room. Now I don't care how small or viewless a room... More

HORRIBLE! Although they were almost empty, I was given a room in a remote, dingy location overlooking a back parking lot. The one pillow was as old and flat as the matted gray carpeting. This place has not been uppated since the '60's or '70's. The mattress and bedding were easily that old. Old tv, furniture, walls and ceiling.Tiny, tiny... More

We celebrated my father's 80th birthday in Rockland, Maine and stayed at the Trade Winds Motor Inn for a full week. We had rooms to accommodate the entire family, siblings, spouses, kids and grand kids. The staff was wonderful - attentive and always willing to help out. The facility has maintained its rustic charm on the outside but is fully... More

I find myself in Rockland, Maine annually in the fall as a jumping off point for a trek to the island of Vinalhaven. For the past 10 years or so, I would stay at a campground nearby. This year, however deciding to seek different accomodations, opted to make my stay at the Tradewinds. This place was just great, offering a... More

1st time staying in downtown Rockland, chose the Trade Winds for the overall location and water view. Our room was quite large and had the requested balcony, but it was located directly next to the 4th floor observation deck, so the view was a lot more obstructed than I had hoped for. I suppose half a view is better than... More

Granted this is an older hotel, but I found it to by quite charming and the location was wonderful! Our harbor view room had a balcony with a perfect view of the full moon rising over the Rockland Harbor and the Breakwater Light. The double-bedded room was clean and comfortable, and we were even able to sleep with the sliding... More
