I've stayed in at least 30 hotels using priceline, mostly 4*, sometimes 3*. This was the first 4* that fell short. Priceliners who expect a Lowes, Marriot, Kimpton, etc when bidding for a 4*, think again when bidding St. Pete. Tradewinds is not of the same quality as other 4* hotels on the coast that pop up on priceline like the Don Cesar down the street or the Grand Hyatt in Bonita Springs. This is a nice value oriented resort/conference center, but nothing like what is expected at a 4*. The property is dated, and has that built 40 or 50 years ago, cinder block, efficientcy apartment style. It has many ammenities, but more like a nice state park rather than an upscale, luxury hotel. Stayed in the Breckingridge building, which hasn't been renovated yet. Room was tired and dated, air unit was loud, and had a musty smell. Actually, the whole building had a slight smell, and I couldn't tell if it was food prep from the conferences that caused the smell, or it was mold. Room linens were 2* quality, as were the towels and toiletries.

The hotel had positives. It was well staffed, and clean. The grounds were well maintained.

There is nothing "wrong" with this resort, but priceline bidders need to avoid bidding 4* in this area. You'll end up with a 2 1/2 star resort, for a 4* bid. I have looked at pictures of the remodeled rooms, and they appear 3* quality, but this is one of the few hotels that seems to place priceliners in the loweest tier rooms, rather than best available.

It was a pleasure stay. Location is great, next to the beach.
Rooms are big even the standard one. We stayed for 3 days and linens were changed everyday. Resorts has 2-3 swimming pools very close to the beach.
The only negative was a $25 resort fees that is charged everyday but you can use Cabana and a paddling boat as it is included in this fees.
Overall our stay was very relaxing and i will plan to visit and stay at this place again.

This is a large resort, right on the beach with soft, white sand and warm sea. Enough waves for fun, but not dangerous. There are three pools, so none get too crowded and one is for adults only.

Rooms are in a number of building and this is where the price can vary considerably, with suites being most common and quite expensive. There is a programme of refurbishment at the moment; the rather gaudy decor and bedding shown on the Expedia site are being fazed out in favour of white bedding and dark carpets. Balconies are not available in standard rooms.

There are a number of eating places. Although the Italian Palm Court is lovely, its portions are small - very small by American standards. Cheaper food is available at Beef O'Brady's and the Flying Bridge, while the breakfast restaurant also serves food in the evening.

A breakfast warning - the buffet is not as good value as the a la carte, which is unusual.

We also found it a little too quite in the evenings.

Most wonderful and friendiest staff/personel of any hotel that I have ever experienced. They are always anxious to make your stay the best...always willing to help you no matter what the request may be. Stayed in one of their newly renovated suites and it is beautiful and very tastefully done...very comfortable.

My husband and I had an amazing time. Everything from the view from our room, the sunset, the restaurant and shops. We even enjoyed the comedy club, I can't remember when we laughed so hard. It was so nice, we brought our entire family over on Sunday to spend by the pool. We had a nice brunch and enjoyed the sun! It was a beautiful weekend. We look forward to staying again.
