My friend and I stayed at South Wind Oct/Nov, 2012. We had a 1st floor ocean front room. The view was great. It was exactly what I wanted. I fished, my friend read books. We never moved the car, because we could walk to everything we wanted to do. My only complaint was that we had a smoking room. I...

Having a great time! Clean comfortable room, friendly staff and I could go on and on but the pool is calling me lol. Stay here you won't be sorry! Next to fishing at the pier and all kinds of things to do and places to eat within walking distance. South Wind is #1 in my book! Thanks South Wind!

Though we have stayed at Kure Beach many times in the past 30 years, this was our first stay at the South Wind. We wanted to be as close to the pier as possible so we gave the South Wind a try and am glad we did. It was a perfect location. The room was pleasant and clean. Kitchen appliances...

Family motel, close to everything, restaurants, fishing on the pier, nice childrens park/playground. You and your family will enjoy staying here and feel safe. The Owners, Trina and Eric are awesome, they will try very hard to make your stay enjoyable. Can't wait to go back.

“Ask for ocean front unless you want to look right into someone else's room or have folks stomp across your balcony.”

“Reserve as early as possible. Oceanfront first floor rooms cannot actually see the ocean. For ocean views, choose 2nd or 3rd floor.”
