The room and the pool were clean. The shower was great! The location was great as well ( around 3 blocks from the beach). The owner was friendly. Price was fair!
I would recommend as a simple but pleasant stay!

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Tradewinds Motel. First, we must say a big 'thank you' to Skip who assisted with directions due to construction work and the 'Cloud' GPS could not reroute us. We were very much amazed at the cleanliness of the room; the beds were comfy; the bathroom was clean and refreshing.The Cleaning Staff were very punctual, polite and very friendly ladies; and Skip and the young lady who runs the Establishment were very professional, and were always available to the Guests. The pool was maintained daily, the walk to the Boardwalk was short, and there are Restaurants to choose from within walking distance; and most of the hotels are close to each other.The people in the area were both friendly and courteous.

I stayed at Tradewinds Motel for one night. Overall it was a nice little motel. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, the pool was well kept. The location was great right in the heart of Ocean City.

First of all, Skip is a great host! The motel is spotless but old...more like nostalgic! The room was spacious, clean, temperature perfect, and the beds were amazingly comfortable. The location is so convenient but very quiet considering it's town center. The pool is so nice and again, very clean. A great landing pad for on-the-go beach lovers who only care about clean and comfy. If you don't mind no frills and a 70's throwback, give the Tradewinds a try.

We stayed 2 nights and were impressed with the improvements since our last stay which was 2014. Motel is dated & basic, but clean & convenient. We stayed in the queen suite #214. It had 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. AC worked great. The sofa was a pullout but we did not use, it was very uncomfortable to even sit on. We had brought an air mattress for our 5th person and used that. Pool was nice and looked clean, we did not use that either. No problem with bugs, or peeling walls and the full fridge was clean,other reviews mentioned differently. Only negative for me was the towels were very bad quality. My husband met us there and I had him bring towels from home. Motel way overpriced but they all are in OC and most are same quality.
Yvonne and Skip were both very friendly and courteous.
Thank Michele G
