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!

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

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.
