Staff was so friendly, we were very last minute with booking but they still accommodated us to exactly what we needed. So close to the pier. A++ ! Big room, super clean. Mini fridge in the room. great tv, huge beds. Already planning on coming back next year!

We made arrangements with Tradewinds for a very large block of rooms for our daughter's wedding a year in advance. There must be two partners - one who is nice and tries to accommodate and one who is clearly the opposite. Unfortunately, the one who seems to make the decisions is not the nice one. They first promised a special... More

Hello DDB444, This is Carolyn the owner, I was the one you spoke to through out this process. First and foremost I am sorry for the inconvenience that you feel was a determent to your guests.

Stayed 3 days (weekend) This is a hidden treasure. My first time at Tradewinds Motor Lodge but not my last! Rooms are very clean and spacious. Comfortable beds. Very friendly staff and helpful. One block from the beach. I loved it.

I was a little skeptical about this motel having been coming down to this area for years now the Tradewinds always looked like the place not to stay. After a family member stayed there a few weeks before my planned trip I knew I had made the correct decision. The location to the beach and restaurants could not have been... More

Stayed for several days for a midweek beach trip with the wife and kids. Rooms were larger than expected and not musty. So many beach motels have musty rooms, but this was nice. Location is great, just one block from the beach and near several restaurants and other food places. The pool was very nice and I couldn't figure out... More

This was my fifth time staying here. Very clean and spacious rooms. Tradewinds right across street from Colonial Bakery(great crumb buns) and Pizza Oven. Short walk to beach. Love staying here. M. Arini

Warning...security cameras do not record so be careful and do not leave anything of value in your room. Will not be returning again. Not sure if we believe that the cameras were not working...convenient to say that they weren't. We were told it was impossible for someone to have entered our room without being seen...we must have misplaced item...haven't found... More

We stayed one the first floor near the pool. Not fancy by any means but clean and a nice stay ... much cheaper than most other Lavallette accommodations. It's one block from the beach. Good places close by to eat as well.

We had four rooms at the Tradewinds for a local wedding. The rooms were a nice size for our three families. The bathrooms were a decent size too. The room had a small refrigerator under a counter at the back of the room. When we arrived, we noticed that there was sand in our bed. The maid staff is made... More

We recently made a spur of the moment trip to visit friend who were spending the week in Ocean Beach. I was hesitant to stay at a property privately owned at the shore. They are generally closed up all winter and musty when opened for business in the summer. However, to my surprise, this motor lodge was all newly renovated... More
