“If I wanted to do my own housekeeping, I'd stay home.”
Reviewed 3 January 2010

Calling this location a "motel" is a misnomer. The rooms are privately owned. Therefore, when checking in, you will be required to sign a contract and intitial a number of stipulations that say the on-site management can levy any number of additional charges for not leaving your room "exactly" as you found it.

Therefore, if you treat this "motel" like a motel and do not, for example, clean up after making coffee or remove your own trash to the dumpster outside, you will receive a post -visit phone call notifiying you that you've been charged an extra $40 for maid service (three figures for "any indication" that you smoked in the room). The caller will also note in her message that if you have a problem with that, allow her to remind you that you signed a contract and oh by the way they took pictures of whatever typical motel mess you left behind.

That said, if you're willing to assume the rate is really more than stated once housekeeping is added after the fact, don't mind "hospitality" that treats you like an interloper, enjoy signing legal contracts akin to joining a condo association for a weekend stay, and want to do your own housekeeping as if you were moving out of an apartment and hoping to get your deposit back, then the rooms and the location are really very nice.

The rooms -- suites, actually -- are meticulous and have numerous modern anemities -- in a region where lodging is generally scant and NOT very high end. The view is also outstanding. So if escalating rates and snitty management doesn't phase you, this is a super place. Unfortunately, I can't recommend it.

We stayed there for two nights and had a wonderful time. The room was fantastic and very clean. Most importantly they allow pets and for all of us dog or cat owners this is a huge bonus. Our kitchen had everything we needed to cook except a frying pan (in case you are planing on staying and need to fry something). The kitchen was clean and spacious for a hotel room unit. And if you are heading that direction during the off season I would recommend cooking as most places are closed and the ones that are open are so so. The bathroom had a huge soaking tub and was very clean. Living rooms come with a fireplace, a very comfortable couch, and most importantly a view of the ocean and a porch. Overall, clean, comfortable, wonderful, friendly managers, our stay was awsome. Highly recommend.

My husband and I wanted to get away to a small coastal town and we decided on Tradewinds. We had such a relaxing time. The rooms were decorated very nice and a contemporary/beach vibe. We walked along the beach and at night we had a peaceful and romantic night. We were able to have a fire in an outdoor fire pit and ssat and drank wine. Just what we needed.

These accomodations have been completely "rehabbed" and "refurbbed". This is a wonderfully quiet spot off the main road and is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Take time to drive down the road to the "old" Tokeland Hotel and restaurant. Had a great supper and breakfast here. Interesting history and antiques. For the price this was "more than adequate" and we slept well with little or no interruptions. We will stay again.

  • Liked — It was very clean and up to date.

We stayed for a three day scrapbooking convention. The rooms have everything you need including microwave, livingroom with television, seperate bedroom, two entrances and bathroom with stand up shower. The bathrooms are a bit small and outdated but adaquate. The gathering room is beautiful overlooking the ocean. Didn't hear a car the entire weekend, so peaceful I didn't want to go home.

We have been frequent customers for the last 15 years. We had our family reunion a few years ago, with our family renting most of the units. I have many fond memories of my trips to the Tradewinds on-the-Bay with my parents while they were still alive.
We find the facility to be clean, quite, and most of all comfortable. When making plans for a trip to the coast, the Tradewinds is still our first choice.
