This was not our first time at the Trade Winds Motor Inn. Overall the rooms are clean but we always end up in the area that hasn't been redone in many years. Usually we get a room that overlooks the parking lot and that's fine. When we stay here we usually have plans that involve the hotel room only being... More

I wish there was a rating between Average and Very Good. It was Above Average but it might be a stretch to say Very Good or Excellent. True the halls are like a rabbit warren but that probably is so most rooms have a view of the Bay. We were in 311 and had a small balcony that overlooked the... More

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 The building itself is outdated and walking through the hallways to get to the room reminds me of a Stephen King movie. But the rooms are clean and not as outdated...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
