I have stayed here twice - Memorial Day weekend 2014 and 4th of July weekend 2014. I booked the least expensive room with 2 double beds and no view. The building itself is outdated and walking through the hallways to get to the room reminds me of a Stephen King movie. But the rooms are clean and not as outdated... More

We stayed there from June 7-13th in a timeshare condo unit 308 that we booked thru RCI. The unit was nice, clean, and the staff was friendly and quickly responded to our every need. The unit had all the comforts of home and a nice balcony with a view of Rockport Harbor in the distance. It was very conveniently located... More

We stayed in the hotel section and also in the timeshare. Neither lived up to our expectation. The hotel room was old, the walls were patched, and the price was high for what it was. The timeshare wasn't much better. We stayed in both a 1BR unit and a studio. The rooms were converted hotel rooms and the layouts were... More

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

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
