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

We have stayed at South Wind Motel for the last few years. We have been fortunate enough this year to make the trip several times and we have not been disappointed. Our room has been clean and ready for us each time.. Whether we needed a coffee pot or hair dryer, they went beyond the normal protocol. Staff is friendly... More

This hotel is a perfect location right on the water. Ample parking and clean rooms. The owners of this hotel really care about their guests experience and I will definitely be back and tell all my friends to come too.

Very helpful staff. Rooms are perfect with views of the ocean. Kitchens stocked with utensils and cooking equipment. Easy to get to Fort Fisher area and right by the pier. Hope to return here in future summer trips.

As a kid I came here every year, and have so many awesome memories, and love the family feel of this place. Then there was a period of time, when that changed once other people were running it. I had friends who had gone back and swore it was different now, so in 2013 I decided to give it another... More

Love this place..Best location to stay, convenient to the pier and good breakfast spot right around the corner. Clean hotel, good value, and friendly staff. When I come to Lure Beach, it's the only place I stay.

We switched from North Myrtle Beach to Kure Beach several years ago to get away from the crowds and traffic at a recommendation of a friend. While this might not be the most modern motel, the location, atmosphere, and friendliness of the staff causes us to continue to return numerous times throughout the year
