“Great front desk staff; breakfast choices not so great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The front desk staff at this hotel were always friendly and helpful. We got there two hours before check-in, and they worked hard to get the room ready (and so we went to lunch). Breakfast choices included no protein, only carbs (so we went out for breakfast). The hotel was good for our purposes, which was just for a place to sleep on our way from one place to another. Beds and pillows were comfy.

Hello WIlliam N

Thank you for your review. It is important for us to understand from your perspective so that we can make improvements that need to be done.
If you let us know that you will be arriving early we can make arrangements to have the room ready upon arrival. Our breakfast is good and accommodates mostly everyone, however I understand wanting a little more for breakfast and Carla's right behind us is a great breakfast alternative to ours.

Very comfortable and quiet. Two blocks from waterfront, exceptional value for the rates charged. Very well run hotel and the staff is great. Would highly recommend! my second stay at this hotel and have been very pleased both times.

Tradewinds hotel is poor by Californian standards, our room was dark and gloomy - maroon furnishings - and the paintwork was grubby. However the bathroom was clean and the breakfast good. The spa area was filthy and clearly hadn't been used for a long time.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is on an upper floor well away from the ice machine. Our room was near the noisy...

Hello Esherbelle,
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. We try our best to provide a nice, clean and comfortable atmosphere for our lodging guests. The furniture was replaced a couple of weeks ago and the spa is maintained daily and used pretty frequently.
We are hoping you will give us another opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations and lodging needs. Please call us directly at (805)772-7376.
Thank you

Booked a back corner room, based on TA advice for a quiet room. Got the 2nd floor large corner room with 2 queen beds, which was very quiet (although no view). Room was immaculate, including a sanitary cover on the TV remote! We had to slip our reservation to the next night due to a late change of plans, and Kayla was great, helping us to avoid the cancellation penalty (we were 20 minutes past the deadline when we found out ). At checkin, Christine was outgoing and helpful, suggesting we see the elephant seals on our travel up the PCH. Hotel location is great -- easily walked downhill the 2 blocks to dinner on the waterfront at the Great American Fish Company, then back uphill for a nap. Luckily we saw the Rock at early dinner (4 pm); by 6 the fog had rolled in, completely obscuring everything. Later, in the fog, walked back down to the waterfront to see what else was around. Lots of places open and busy. Breakfast at The Tradewinds was good; yes, the dining area is tiny, with only 3 tables, but Kayla gave us trays to carry food back to our room if we wanted. We were well rested and well fed for our second day driving up the beautiful PCH.

Room Tip: Corner room upstairs and in the back was very quiet and roomy, but with no view.

The hotel was very clean and had great amenities (good size refrigerator, flat screen TV, view of Morro Rock, convenient to the waterfront and to downtown) and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is nice also, with plenty of food, including oatmeal, hot waffles and hard boiled eggs. I will definitely be back.

We loved the location and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was great with a perfect view of Morro Rock. We stayed a couple of days as part of a road trip going down the coast. The only down side was that we couldn't stay longer! Can't wait to go back. Thanks for everything.♥

This is a nice place to stay, the rooms were nice, the staff was very friendly and it's right by the harbor and restaurants.

We had reservations for two nights, but our son, who was not with us, had a heart attack the first night. We had to leave and go to the hospital the next morning. The Tradewinds refunded our second nights room charge. I suspect that most places wouldn't have done that, so why not stay at a place that is above and beyond.
