Judging by these reviews we thought this would be a nice place to stay at... but it was not all that great. Yes the staff was very friendly and nice. We get our key... open the door and BAM... what the heck is that smell... UGH! Two full beds, stained chair, desk, low wall mounted 13" TV, mini refrigerator with rust along the bottom, microwave with rust, AC unit mounted in the wall, bathroom door falling apart and nasty tiles. The floors were dark tile and dirty... our socks were black nightly from walking thru the room. When you try to sit on the bed... it slides across the floor (you know wheels on a tile floor will move). The low mounted TV is a concern if you have small child. We did our best to stay out of the room except for sleeping. And I will say we did not see anything bugs, so that was a plus. This bottom level room across from the office is in desperate need of remodeling!!

Pros: Friendly staff, location to beach/pier and restaurant were excellent (Big Daddy's and Jack Mackerel's were awesome)
Cons: Beds, room overall, floor tiles, appliances, smell

Again THANKS to Trent and all of his staff we had another great stay at South Wind. From the front desk to the house keeping. You could not ask for a better location. the room is very clean and the house keeping kept everything perfect. Don't miss out on a great place to stay at Kure Beach. Thanks Trent, Josh and everyone at South Wind. Blane

Room Tip: All are great rooms

After an initial mix-up over our reservation, the front desk clerk quickly cleared it up. They typically have a three-day minimum stay on weekends but waived it since they weren't completely booked. The entire place was spotless! The room was very clean and spacious and the staff was friendly and accommodating! Perfect location...within walking distance to everything, and with a beach-front view, we didn't need to go far!

Will stay again and highly recommend this as a perfect beach get-a-way!

Thank you Trevor and Stuart!

Room Tip: Third floor oceanfront!!

We love staying at South Wind. The owners are nice and extra friendly and we have always found our rooms clean. We love coming here in the fall for our fishing trip. It is right beside the pier and if my husband doesn't fell like going I can go by myself. I fell like this is my 2nd home. I love it here. Resturants all around and no need to drive anywhere. Great place in the fall for older couples.

Room Tip: Have my favorite room, don't want to give it away!!
