We've stayed at South Wind several times. This time has been the worst!!! I don't know why. The hotel is great. We've not gotten out towels replaced like we should have. And the front desk workers have been rude as you know what!! I really do hate it! We want a steady place to bring our kids. But this time has not been good at all. We had an issue with the room next to us. I went and talked to the man in the office. I was nice and he jerked around and crossed his arms and spoke to me with attitude. Then went down another and asked if we could stay an extra day in the room we have or another room. Didn't even look. Just said no. Also had attitude. Why?!!

Clean older oceanfront motel. The lady at the front desk was very friendly. No one could argue about the summer rates. We had a microwave and a refrigerator. The room has a strong musty odor at first but after a while you don’t notice it. All of our neighbors have been coming here for years they told us, and this was our first visit; so that says something. Also you can walk to the pier and several eating establishments.

This is my third time staying at South Wind and every time doesn't disappoint! The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The motel is older but well maintained. The location is perfect, within walking distant to the pier and local restaurants. I have stayed at several of the motels in the area and South Wind is by far the best.

Room Tip: You can't see the ocean from the oceanfront 1st floor. The 2nd and 3rd floor oceanfront...
