The owners Ed and Nona are terrific people, and were very helpful in recommending places for us to eat. The motel is centrally located, you can walk to just about everything. Yes it's an old motel and shows its age but it is clean (I have NO idea where these people stayed who said it wasn't clean!!). We stayed for... More

My family and I had a good experience at the Tradewinds Motel. My husband and I found the owners very friendly and happy to engage in small talk. Our kids enjoyed using the pool before and after the beach. Chuck the pool guy really keeps it sparkling clean. The rooms were sufficent for our needs, especially for the price we... More

We wanted to treat our 3 teenage grandsons to a nice week in o.c. We are not wealthy people but they are good grandsons & deserved a special vacation. When we first went into our room we noticed a foul, stale smell. Then we walked through our room & bath we all said at the same time how filthy it... More

My family and I had a great experience there. The owners were nice and the staff was very helpful to us. The rooms were clean; the linens and towels were fresh. The pool was sparkling, you can tell they take pride in it. We will be back next year for sure.

Ed and Nonna could not be more accommodating , we have stayed here many times the rooms are CLEAN... Although old, the location is in the heart of Ocean City... They are flexible with my family needs...and parking is ample.......

After all the years of staying in OCNJ, I have never stayed in such an atrocious place before! We were staying for 2 nights, 3 days and were told we'd have to stay in one room for one night, then move to another, which we refused to do. I am not moving around so it suits you better. Well, we... More

I called this summer to find out the room availability. They had 2 of the 3 nights available that I wanted. They told me that I should give my credit card number to "hold" the room since there was only one left. They said they would hold the room until 5 pm that night- if I did not call back... More

Spend more money and stay elsewhere. I stayed here with my husband July 29–31, 2011. The best thing about this hotel is how it looks from the curb—it all went downhill from there. We are in our late twenties and are very accustomed to staying in beach towns in simple rooms. But this was a dump. I’m not sure if... More

I took my seven kids to Ocean City for a couple of day....we checked in at the Trade Winds and it was awful. The first room that the owner gave us keys for way dingy, really small, paint/plaster was chipping from around the windows, and it was steaming hot due to the air conditioner being off. We did have reservations,... More
