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!

Had bottom floor this time, room 108. Sunday and Monday night. The place was very clean, beds comfortable. Made reservations online 2 days before. 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

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was all around a great stay. It's just a small older motel but it is clean and has such good charm to it. If you're looking for something fancy this is not the place for you. It is well kept up and the staff is wonderful. We stayed on the second floor... More

South Wind is a classic old school family owned motel in a cute little beach town. I loved the sturdy wooden rockers on the ocean front balconies, and the close proximity to the beach and the pier is great. My room had 2 double beds and a small kitchen with pots, pans and utensils, and a full sized fridge. The... More

Came down for a few day and we were staying at a different hotel, after our reservation was up we decided to stay longer but the hotel we were staying at didn't have any vacancies. So we stumbled upon Southwind. It is half the price of where we were staying. And very nice for the price we were paying. All... More
