Tradewinds Motel
Ranked #27 of 31 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed 31 July 2017

Tradewinds is an average Jersey Shore no frills hotel. Make sure you bring your own hair shampoos and conditioner. No frills! The rooms rate a big OK. The pool another OK. The personnel were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean. The location was very good. You exit the GS parkway and drive down the road! You can walk to the beach, boardwalk, Asbury Street and many restaurants. The cost was pretty high for what you get but Ocean City as a whole seems to be getting $$$.

Room Tip: We liked the queen room across from the office

Reviewed 21 July 2017

We stayed here last year. The owner was renovating so we let a few little things go by. But this year, hoping that things would be better, we were disappointed. When we checked in, after waiting for the room to be cleaned, both white comforters were stained. On one bed, the bed sheet was stain with something red (?). The second bed sheets were dirty. Bath towels were stained as well. I went to the front desk the manager personally changed the bed sheets and comforters. But while he was doing that he removed the mattress liner protector and left it on the bed while he step out of the room to get more linens. We noticed a big round yellow stain (as a parent you can only imagine what it is). I thought that he was removing it but when he got back he actually was putting it back on the bed. I asked him to remove it and change it to a new one. He said: the liner will not touch you it has a cover. But I insisted and he changed it. He blamed the previous guests instead of just apologizing. For the $190 a night that we are paying, there should be clean linens. Outside of the room, the trash can was not emptied. Coffee was leaking from the trash can and the next day it was all dried up on the floor. Cleanness is not their priority. The furniture is very dated in the room. We will not be returning. It's unfortunate because of the location.

This place will charge $40 no matter how long before your check in you cancel your reservation. My guess is they make $$ on cancellations, so if don't you like being ripped off or dealing with crooks and attitudes, keep looking.

I was participating in a bike event - Multiple Sclerosis and this was one of the few hotels with vacancy when I booked it.
The room is mediocre. I was told in advance that room was pet friendly and may have an odor but main issue was bed seemed old. You can hear the springs as you turn over.
The bathroom has glass doors which should be cleaner. The rails were dirty and toilet needed to be "giggled" so the water doesn't run all night.

The flat screen TV was so dark it was difficult to see image. They should invest in newer tvs.

We were very happy with our stay.

It's not fancy, and the property is old, but it is well-maintained, reasonably clean, conveniently located, priced well, and has friendly staff.

The hotel pool is small, but was clean, and not crowded.

The room was decent sized. The beds were comfortable. Staff was accommodating (we checked in very late, and we requested extra towels, and had no problems).

The walk to the boardwalk was only a couple of blocks.

The only negative we noticed was mildew in the bathroom, but it's an old hotel, and by the ocean, so this isn't unexpected, especially for a hotel in this price range.

Tradewinds is a good option for economy vacations in Ocean City.
