Compass Family Resort Motel
Ranked #19 of 68 Hotels in Wildwood Crest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 June 2006

Well lets put it this way, it was not what they said it was. We called and inquired about the place, before we decided to go there. The man we spoke to on the phone told us it was a family resort, for kids. When we got there, the game room was closed, due to the senior citizens they were catering to, the mini golf was closed, they did not offer us cofee in the lobby and to top it off, there was no cofee in our room, just a cofee pot! The roll out bed which was suppose to be queen, was probably a double, and it hurt my husbands back, which means it was not confortble at all. This place was not worth even $75.00 a night we paid. Maybe 20.00 a night.

We stayed at the Compass in August of 2005. When I made the reservation in early 2005, the owner stated that they had just made a million dollars in renovations. The motel looked decent from their website. We had 2-room with a full size refrigerator and microwave. The rooms looked freshly painted and had a new carpet. The room was clean and the motel is very close to the beach. Our room as well as several others lost power one night, it came back on 15 minutes later, but then one of the outlets in the bathroom and one in the bedroom no longer worked. We notifed the hotel staff, but the outlets were still not working when we check out. All in all it was worth the $157/night we paid for August. We have stayed at the Tangiers in the past and consider them to be equal.

The Compass was fine. Clean inside and out.

The staff was non intrusive.

Since we've had disasters at other motels we're always apprehensive. Our weeekend was pleasent. We stayed here the Soccer Beach Bash weekend which is very busy but a good/younger crowd. Maybe a rowdier bunch would have caused more problems.....
