Nice simple room and close to the beach but not too close that we had a noise problem at night.

We will definitely return to this motel! Room was basic but clean and comfortable and at a great price for the area. We loved the convenience of being able to walk to beach and owner was welcoming and friendly. Be aware that it is no frills but you do have a refrigerator, microwave and air conditioning. Bathroom was small but... More

Although I never met the woman who books the rooms, she seemed very pleasant and straightforward. Not having the office staffed at any point during my stay was strange, but never caused a problem. My room was small particularly because it was so narrow. The only adjustment for heat is on the floor (baseboard) and impossible to read. A double... More

I always remove the bedspreads when I get to a room as well as inspect for bed bugs. Thank goodness no bedbugs but nasty stains on the backs of these very old and faded bedspreads. I needed to wash with soap & warm water after touching them. I also found a dental flosser on the floor near the bed and... More

My wife and I are "lighthouse chasers" and were looking for a basic motel to spend two nights in as we visited lighthouses in Connecticut and Rhode Island. The Tradewinds fit the bill. The room was on the small side, just a bed, chair, dresser and small frig- no table - but was very clean and functional. Would not want... More

I have stayed at this motel at least a dozen times over the past six or seven years and have always found the owners to be friendly and accommodating. The rooms are basic but immaculately clean and comfortable. It is the best value at the beach (a short walk away) and off the main road so it is peaceful. I... More

We tried different motels but for the last 10 years of our visits we stayed at the Trade Winds. We felt safe, and relaxed. Through Gary & Gail we learned what a wonderful commuinty it... More

We spent 4 nights at the Tradewinds in August, 2006. It was clean, had air conditioning and was walking distance to beach and snacks. The management is mom and pop, but was pleasant and the property neat and clean. It is a mom and pop so don't expect a Hilton or Hyatt, but was convenient to the coast of Rhode... More
