Nice independent motel on the oceanfront We stayed in a second floor oceanfront unit. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and hospitable. Check in was a breeze. Can't beat the view.

I can not say enough nice thing about the South Wind. I brought my Mom who had recently lost her husband suddenly. Trent was so nice and friendly and accommodating. The room was so clean and so convent to every place. The beds were a little worn out and uncomfortable, especially for my 73 yo Mom. She mentioned this to... More

This motel was great. Perfect location right beside the pier. The rooms were so clean..no bugs. The bathroom was also clean. The view from the second floor was amazing. The sunrise was beautiful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the shower head was less than desirable. Meaning there was only one type of stream and it... More

This was my first time in Kure Beach. What a nice time we had. Our room was perfectly located by the pool. The rooms were clean and supplied with everything we needed to make this trip stress free! We did have a minor issue with the toilet not wanting to flush but that was promptly remedied. Highly recommended. Front desk... More

First time at South Wind Motel. This is a perfect location & convenient to restaurants. . Rooms are clean. Staff is friendly. Only complaint we have is the beds.. They are hard! If it wasn't for the beds, they would get 5 stars

This was my family's 3rd year staying here. The people who own it also clean rooms, change linen, etc. All the employees are warm and friendly. They absolutely make you feel welcome. We stayed right beside the pool but there was problem with noise-even at night. There's a quiet time and it is nice and quiet for families trying to... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two kids for a quick getaway. We stayed in a first floor oceanfront efficiency with the pool outside our door. The rooms were very clean and sound proof and everyone was friendly. It's a nice motel we will defiantly go back!

Called to verify that morning before we left and it was. Place was very busy that afternoon for checkouts, but staff did great job of getting rooms ready for the next guests. Everyone there was very... More

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at the South Wind Motel. It is always clean and a great deal for the price. If you want all the bells and whistles this is not the motel for you. If you want beach view, clean room, convenience to Kure Beach restaurants here is where you want to... More
