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

We just stayed 3 nights at the Southwind Inn, in Port Isabel, Texas. The rooms are a tad smaller than some other hotels that we have stayed in and they had 2 double sized beds in the room. But for the price, location, how clean it was, the friendliness of the owners, and staff it was so worth it. It... More

We have spent January and February at the Southwind for 3 years now. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Ron & Cecelia, the owners are kind, friendly and very helpful and you can't beat the price. The room is clean and each year something is updated. Last year it was new toilet, this year it was a new flat screen... More
