I love old-fashioned drive up to the room motels and this one was spic & span clean, updated and so reasonably priced. Cecelia was very nice and even left me a note for my very late check-in indicating my room number and left the room unlocked, key on the table. Great little pool, laundry machine available ($2 for wash, $0... More

Tucked away but clean n comfy. Opposite graveyard rather than sea view but quiet lol. Difficult to find reception although when we did she was helpful. Lovely location with great restaurants within walking distance. Stayed one night during our recent road trip around south coast of texas

We stayed two nights while on a birding trip in the area and were quite pleased. The place has been around for awhile, but it is in good repair and was extremely clean. Very good beds. Location allows for walking to several good spots to eat.

We spent two nights recently. I read a review about a roach. I never saw one. However, this is the Texas Tropics and critters do come with the territory. The owner was very pleasant. The room was not huge but adequate, very clean with nice kitchenette. The fridge was larger than most motels offer. Pool is clean, large, and private.... More

I'm reluctant to write this review because I don't want the good word to get out that Southwind Inn is an excellent place to stay in Port Isabel. I've stayed here twice and both times have been great experiences. The rooms are clean, the staff are friendly, the views beautiful, and the location is excellent. There are numerous shops and...

I was in Port Isabel for business over two nights, and stayed here. You can tell that the management is slowly but surely upgrading things and keeping everything running well. The TV was new and worked well, and I was glad to have a mini-fridge and coffee maker to myself. The bed was comfortable if not luxurious, though the comforter... More

When we arrived early at noon we expected to have to wait to check in but our room was already ready to go. It was a bit dated but very clean. There was a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, sink, and hot plate. Maid service every day and we never lacked clean towels. There was even breakfast if you wanted.... More

My husband and I stayed at Southwind Inn for four nights in August. We are so glad we stayed here. It was quiet and clean and the owners (Ron & Cecelia) were so friendly and accommodating. The housekeeping staff were also friendly. We enjoyed the bbq area, the pool (which is open 24 hrs) and the view of the bay.... More
