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Great place - Looks outdated from the outside but its a very cool retro-charming sort of look.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

First of all if you are expecting a 4 star hotel when you go to the Jersey Shore you are going to be disappointed. The lodging is old time motel style. But that being said this was by far the cleanest and most up-to-date motel in the area. The room was just renovated and the furniture including the beds and... More

If you want to stay in a place with no telephone, or any extras (large towels for shower) then stay at the Tradewinds. Basic bed and bath - no extras what-so-ever. People over you loud and dancing on floor . SO sorry that I stayed there. Terrible.

Tradewinds Motor Lodge is located 1 block from the Lavallette Beach. There is a great pizza place across the street called The Oven which has great pizza. There are also a few breakfast & lunch only eateries within a block's walk. The Colonial Bakery right next door has many, many goodies including homemade fudge. Everything I sampled (linzer torte cookies,... More

Great location, very clean, staff very nice, big rooms but dated. Over all great experience! My wife and I were going to be staying in the Pocono's for a few days and when I saw how close Lavalette was from our resort I had to try and get down there for a few days. My family owned a house in... More
