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

Our rating is based on the rarity of this property - family owned and operated with pride. No chain driven huge property with indifferent staff here! All the staff were attentive and rooms were clean and adequate for our beach stay. Kids had a blast at the pool, and there was a real community feel to this motel. We'd go... More

Picked the Tradewinds mainly because it was a great price for it's location 1 block from the beach. We did go the week before everything opened but we still found plenty to do and places to eat. A friend was driving 8 1/2 hrs from Ohio for a three-night vacation with me at the Jersey Shore. I drove down from... More

My family have been renting summer cottages in lavalette since the 1950's. Super storm sandy devasted our rental community so we were not able to rent a cottage for our 2013 vacation. Our family wanted to support the shore during its construction healing phase (which is still continuing) so decided to stay at the Tradwinds. We were pleasantly surprised. The... More

Grew up in Lavallette summers and much of the town is still as welcoming and homey as when I was a kid. First time at this motor lodge and nicely surprised. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Very clean. Our six yr old, as well as we, enjoyed the pool. Too hot most days for the beach, since we had no... More

Stayed here for a wedding on the Jersey Shore and loved the location. I would view this motel as a Mom and Pop style. Don't expect the Hilton. It was clean. The people were friendly. The place has seen some updating since Hurricane Sandy. There is an outdoor pool, and a very large outside patio with umbrella tables. Our room,... More

This review is from our second stay at the Tradewinds. The rooms have been remodeled from last year thanks to Sandy. The new rooms are great. Modern look nice set up. Our last trip in 2012 was outstanding and our 2013 stay was even better (we stayed longer this time). The staff are excellent. The rooms are clean. You can... More

We were soooooooooooo happy the tradewinds was reopened this season so we could continue our yearly trips to the shore. We couldn't get down till this weekend and they were sold out which was a great sign. The rooms were all redone, they look great. The setup is better, nice flat screen tvs, new comfy beds and the furniture is... More

We visited my hometown of Lavallette just to see how they were doing post-Sandy. I'd never stayed at the Tradewinds because I'd always stayed with friends & family, but I remember the hotel from my childhood. It was a happy surprise to find it to be very comfortable and a great bargain for the off-season price we paid in early... More

Great place - Looks outdated from the outside but its a very cool retro-charming sort of look. The rooms look just like a normal updated "Hotel" with two double beds. Clean pool. Even cleaner rooms. All updated complete with a friendly staff to help. Location is great. If you have kids and don't wish to meet the cast of "Jersey... More
