Great place to stay in a relaxed small town feel. We stayed for 5 days in August and like always had a great time and enjoyed our clean comfortable room, near all the things to do(beach, pier, aquarium, boardwalk, and restaurants). We had a blast with our granddaughter swimming in the pool and walking on the pier and boardwalk. Take...

Just got back from a 4 night stay at South Wind. Stayed in an ocean front efficiency. Room was very clean and received clean towels everyday. We have stayed here in the past and would definitely stay on all our trips to Kure Beach. The staff was very pleasant and we enjoyed talking to them. Would highly recommend this motel.

If you want a run down, non-friendly, place to stay in Kure Beach, then this is the place for you. However, if you expect a clean, non-smoking room where the staff does not lie to you then I suggest not contacting this place EVER. We were given a very obvious SMOKING room...they didn't even bother to take out the ash...

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