Graph: Upcoming 20 Days of Southport Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Southport, NC discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Southport hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Southport is also proud of its history. Although the area was explored by the Spanish in the early 1520s and used as a pirate harbor in the early 1700s, the town's roots go back to the establishment of Fort Johnston, which was built in 1758 to protect settlements along the Cape Fear River. In 1792, North Carolina's General Assembly commissioned the founding of a town around the fort. This town was originally named Smithville, in honor of a local politician who served in the Revolutionary War and was eventually elected governor.

Over time, Smithville evolved from its humble beginnings as a fishing village and military town into a popular resort town — thanks in no small part to the aforementioned sea breezes. The town was renamed in 1887 as part of a push to become a major Southern port. Although this never came to pass, Southport remains a popular vacation destination and historical site.

When should you visit Southport, NC?

In terms of weather, the best time to visit Southport would be in the spring (from mid-March to early June) or the fall (from mid-September to mid-November). During these months, you can expect temperatures in the high 60s to mid-70s on most days, although they can drop above or below that range. Summer temperatures, meanwhile, tend to average in the upper 70s to mid-80s.

As you might expect, spring is the busiest season for Southport, with summer following close behind. Visiting during fall may give you the best balance of cost and comfort, with temperatures that are still pleasant and lower hotel rates than the peak tourism seasons. Winter sees the fewest number of tourists in Southport, which is good news if you're hunting for hotel bargains. However, temperatures will be chilly during this season. Highs average between 53 and 61 degrees Fahrenheit, so it will be warmer than the country's northern regions but colder than warm-weather travelers would like.

What are the most affordable hotel options for travelers to Southport, North Carolina?

3 Star Average Prices: $112.43

If finding low hotel prices is your top priority, you may want to look outside Southport. Its coastal location and historic charm attract enough tourists to drive hotel prices up higher than those you'll find elsewhere. Wilmington, for instance, lies about half an hour north of Southport and boasts several affordable hotel options, such as the Super 8 by Wyndham Wilmington and the Howard Johnson by Wyndham Wilmington.

The Super 8 by Wyndham is a two-star beach hotel located near the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Rooms here feature free Wi-Fi, refrigerators, microwaves, and cable programming. Guests also have access to a 24-hour business center and free self-parking. Adjoining rooms can be requested, and in-room safes are available for a small per-day fee.

The Howard Johnson by Wyndham, a two-star downtown hotel, offers a little more value. In addition to free Wi-Fi and self-parking, guests get a free continental breakfast each morning. Unlike the Super 8, this hotel does not have a business center, but it does have fitness facilities. Guestrooms include cable programming and partially-open bathrooms with shower/tub combinations and complimentary toiletries.

The city is also home to the North Carolina Maritime Museum and the Old Brunswick County Jail Museum.
