Reviewed 3 March 2012

My fiance, stepson and I have visited here several times over the past few summers. The accommodations are very basic, but it is perfect for us because we are not there to spend time in our room! The hotel is within walking distance to the beach. The staff is very friendly. The coffee shop on the corner is also perfect (although the open at 6, which is a little late for my fiance, who is an early riser). There are many restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance. Enjoy!

I stayed here with my family (16 guests, 5 rooms) while visiting Lavallette for a family reunion. We had initially booked 2 rooms at a 'nicer' hotel that was further inland, but changed our reservation to Tradewinds after hearing good reviews, so that we could be closer to my aunt's house in Lavallette. The location was nice, along the main road and within walking distance to the beach. The hotel was extremely clean and the rooms were larger than expected. However, this is a motor lodge so do not expect anything fancy ... the pool closes early, the rooms and bathrooms are a bit outdated, the front desk staff is also the cleaning/maintenance staff. Overall, it was a decent beach motel and I would stay again. FYI - If you book at the motor lodge, you MUST try the Colonial bakery located next door. Get there early to avoid a wait and try the crumb cake!

This was my first time staying in a hotel down at the shore and we had a great time. My sons are 9 and 6 and our room was large, clean and so comfortable. We were on the first floor in the corner so we had plenty of room outside to sit and relax early morning and late at night, we were near the pool and parking on the street was easy. We had so many options to eat within walking distance and the beach was beautiful. We love Lavallette and used to own a home in Ocean Beach. This trip made our summer so special and we cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: The end rooms on each floor have an extra bed so they sleep 5 comfortably and the end units have ext...
