This motel is in the absolute perfect location! So sad that the property is not updated to capitalize on that bonus. We were booked for five days and had prepaid or we would have made our exit and sought other lodgings. Even though it was extremely dated, it was clean. We had expressed a desire for a view from our... More

It was clean but very old with vinyl floors and rust stains in the tub. The sink was on poles and no counter space. TV was about the size of my computer screen. After seeing the room I decided not to check in. Very nice folks working there.

South Wind has the perfect location! You can walk to 3 great restaurants and the pier is next door. Rooms are clean, and roomy. The only thing that I think would make it better, is a small table and a couple of chairs! I don't like going out to eat for all my meals, so it would be nice to... More

Perfect for a immediate place to stay and reasonably priced. Still close to everything for walking distance. Family atmosphere is how we would categorize this hotel. Still can see the ocean from porch if you cannot get beachside.

Kure Beach is a small residential beach. If you are looking for flash and dash, resort comforts or luxuries, this isn't the place for you. If you want clean and comfortable digs with priceless views and a no frills stay, South Wind will foot the bill!! Everyone was very nice from the office staff to housekeeping. We will definitely be... More

South Wind Motel is in the perfect spot. Right next to the Pier and great places for dinner. The rooms are spacious and clean. Each room has a microwave and fridge. We stayed on the third floor oceanside and the view was amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our two night stay!

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
