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

We can't recommend the Southwind Inn highly enough. During our month's stay in February 2013, we felt right at home, thanks to a wonderful welcome from Ron and Cecelia, the owners. It is older, but the rooms are the cleanest we have seen among all the stays we've made on road trips traveling with a dog. Each room has a... More

We were looking for a place to stay that was inexpensive but convenient. The Southwind Inn was perfect. We had a room on the first floor with a small kitchenette that was across the street from the local cemetery. (I requested a room with a beach view but they were all taken.) The fridge is not full size but it... More

Southwind Inn is set back a couple of blocks from the main drag and we came across it by chance, and what a find. Lovely owners and a clean, tropically decorated room with a small kitchenette. Flat screen tv with excellent picture quality and high speed internet. Great location with some rooms showing the bay. Ours overlooked the small cemetery... More

We wanted to attend our son's "renewal of vows" on the beach on South Padre Island in August, but it is "peak" season and the rentals were out of our price range. We were delighted to find Southwind Inn in Port Isabel, TX right across the bridge from South Padre. It was clean, and equipped with kitchenette and appliances, and... More
