ROCKLAND, Maine — One of the city’s oldest and largest hotels will be featured on a national cable television show that seeks to breathe new life into lodging businesses.

A crew from “ Hotel Impossible” was at the Trade Winds Motor Inn this week.

Trade Winds officials, including founder Robert Liberty, referred questions to representatives of the TV show. An email sent to a show representative Friday was not immediately returned.

The show’s website states that “hotel fixer” Anthony Melchiorri and his team of designers “revamp and transform struggling hotels into successful tourist accommodations.” The show airs at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on the Travel Channel.

The show aired an episode in November of a makeover done on the Charles Inn in Bangor.

The broadcast date for the Trade Winds segment has not been released.

The Trade Winds was built in 1965 on Park Drive in downtown Rockland. Robert Liberty, who had been the northern New England director for Andersen windows, built the hotel with a business partner. Liberty later bought out his partner and operated the hotel over the next five decades, expanding the complex on multiple occasions.

Liberty’s children now operate the hotel. His daughter Aimee Hunt is president of the Trade Winds Motor Inn and his son Stephen Liberty is treasurer.

The Trade Winds has 138 rooms including 15 suites, according to its website. Many of the rooms have balconies that overlook Rockland Harbor and the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. There is an indoor pool, fitness center and restaurant in the Trade Winds.
