It is vey difficult to put all the "good feelings" I have for this wonderful "home away from home" in one review. My husband and I have been coming here since our first years of marriage...and that would be 26 years! We both have traveled extensively, to many other countries as well as exotic islands...atmosphere of the Tradewinds has not... More

Lavalette is one of our favorite towns to come to when we visit the shore. This motel was at a great price and the staff was more than helpful. The hotel is located very well, with lots of shops and things to do for the kids. We honestly can't wait to come back next year.

A perfect place to kick back for a beach break. I stayed here twice over the summer. Both rooms were clean and well maintained. The decor is simple, new and bright. The furniture is also new. The beach is a block away, there is also a nice bakery next door and a pizza place on the opposite corner. This is... More

I have been staying at the Tradewinds in Lavallette for the past 12 years and I could not be happier with the motor lodge. Since Sandy they have renovated the property and rooms to a bright and welcoming atmosphere. They have made it the best place to stay at the Shore. The rooms are very clean and spacious and come...

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

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
