I especially would like to say thank you to my room attendants, (always smiling), the room service staff (breakfast), Abbey, 5:00 am bellman and the people that helped me...

Visited with two college age daughters during spring break so it could've gone either way. TradeWinds staff all did a wonderful job! They were all very welcoming and helpful. We received a very fair price for our one bedroom suite, and were in the perfect place overlooking the canal with a balcony. The beaches were kept clean and beach staff...

Indian Rocks Beach, Florida

Very average rooms, food and staff were great. The greatest were the staff in the hotel convenience store and snack shop. The bar crawl was fun and they do provide the free t-shirts when it's completed. The area is the real gem here. Plenty of exploring and the beach is wonderful.

Stayed here for a meeting and a little beach time. The ballroom was big enough for the event and staff should be rated five stars! They are all over issues and ver friendly, whomever you speak too. The food was well done and presentations were very tasteful. The issue is the rooms need updating badly and they certainly have leakage...

What a great resort. Jason at the front desk went out of his way to take care of a small accident when we arrived. Bellmen were outstanding.
