As most other reviews have said, a big selling point for Tradewinds Apartment Hotel is its location. It's very well placed for easy walking access to Ocean Drive, Collins Ave and South Beach itself.
On the down-side, my wife and I found our ground floor apartment to be a little 'tired' and worn in terms of the fittings and furnishings. As others have noted, the A/C was a bit noisy and the floor was dirty when we arrived. However, I'm pleased to say we didn't see any cockroaches !
The kitchen is a good size with all the necessary appliances and utensils, but there were no cooking knives.
The front desk staff varied in their professionalism. Some were very efficient and helpful, others less so.
The free airport shuttle is a definite bonus, but make sure you're at the right place and the right time at the airport, or you'll miss it ! There is also Happy Hour access to other hotels in the South Beach Group.
If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodation in this part of Miami, then you should certainly consider this facility.
