“Good Experience”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This was our second stay at Compass Cove and it was a fun and good visit. My kids enjoyed our stayed. We all enjoyed being able to float in the lazy river and the pools were a big hit and to be able to walk right out on the beach was another big plus. I would recommend this resorts to all families the kids all ages will enjoy.

We stayed there over April vacation. This was our second trip to myrtle beach but first time at compass cove. The hotel was good, not the best not the worst. Location was fine...in the middle of everything. We stayed in the pinnacle bldg on the 12th floor. View was great of course. Lots of pools to choose from.

The check in process was slow and we didn't even get there till later in the evening. I can't imagine how slow it is at 3. Once we got to our room I noticed the floors were not cleaned. I called and asked someone to come up to actually clean the floors but no one came...I left it alone bc I figured it was getting late and they would be cleaned the next day. Wrong....no housekeeping! Someone knocked on the door and we said we were leaving in a few minutes and to come back. We left 10 min later 5-7 ppl were standing directly outside our door chatting and I assumed waiting for us to leave so someone could clean...nope! When we came back later that night the room was still not cleaned. I had to call and request someone. On the bright side, the woman that came did a great job and was very nice and apologetic.

The OV suite was nice but the kitchen and bathroom were very small. Would prefer something larger. If you really wanted to cook it would be difficult. We stayed at the Caribbean 2 summers ago and the suite kitchen and bathroom were much better.

The pools really need to be cleaned better. Too many bugs in the outside lazy river. My son didn't want to go in it and he isn't that picky. The other pools were better, but still needed better maintaining. This is not even summer busy season so I would worry about that if I were to stay there in the summer.

Parking was tight but doable. Those with large vehicles are going to have a more difficult time. But it's not as awful as some reviews stated.

Overall the hotel was fine for a family vacation ( I would not stay there as a couple because it's not relaxing and loud bc of all the kids). The hotel is good for the price. I would just prefer better housekeeping if I were to go back. And better pool upkeep.

The location was superb, finally my cousin booked a hotel that was clean and comfortable. We were close t the ocean and the price was perfect. The resort was beautiful, seems like they did some renovations.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom condo in the Mariner building. It was a great! We had a full kitchen and a washer and dryer too. The W&D was very handy as we had small kids with us. The balcony was awesome, great views. However the drawback is its not a non-smoking resort (yet, maybe hopefully in future) so we had to limit our balcony use because of the nastiness of smoke wafting from other's balconies.There is no smoking in the pool areas, however some are steps away from the 1st floor 'balconies' thus the people smoking there had their smoke wafting into the pool areas. The drinks at the tiki hut were very pricey and not resort worthy drinks. The staff overall was great. Didn't have any problems with any of them.The gym facility was great too! I was impressed with the cardio and the weight rooms. Only thing to make the gym better would be to have sanitizer bottles readily available for guests to wipe down machines, instead of squirting hand sanitizer onto a towel and using that. Speaking of towels, the ones in room lacked so much! Worst towels I've ever used anywhere-hotel or resort or anywhere! Could really bump up a star if had better towels!

I suggest anyone booking here to read up on the 3 different buildings to make your best selection of rooms.

Room Tip: The Mariner building is the better of the buildings. However the elevators are in the parking garage...

i went here September 27-30, 2013 and I loved the experience. room we stayed in was the schooner oceanfront double efficiency, in the schooner building, it was 4 adults traveling, small room wouldn't recommend choosing it for you to stay with people that have a possibility of driving you crazy. It was affordable, a little more money but I've heard good things about this place and figured it was worth it, also the reviews weren't so great for the other cheaper hotels. I will list my good and bads.
THE GOOD: the staff was great. front desk, cleaning people, bar tenants etc...
I arrived and was booked on the 13th floor, walked out onto the balcony and about had a heart attack, way too high. So I call the front desk and explained. The man was very nice and got us a room on the 10th floor said it was the only room we had left closest to the ground floor so we took it(it was very busy at the front desk so I was surprised this was a very successful phone call). 5 minutes later a knock on the door and it was a staff member with our room keys and offering to help us with our luggage. It only taking him 5 minutes was great seeing as to how it took us 10.
The rooms were very neat and clean, smelled great also. the pool was clean. best part about this is, there are plenty of kid pools and activities at this resort that the adults who want to enjoy the pool area without kids screaming and swimming in the lazy river killing your relaxation time, can actually relax and enjoy the pool area.
The Crows Nest is the restaurant on site. I LOVED their food and drinks, prices werent too high either. They have a bar wth a tv there, there is an outside patio that is ocean view and very peaceful. the staff was very friendly and nice.
THE BAD: room was small, but it was cheap. The parking was awful, the parking deck infront of the hotel was always full, and if you did get a space, they were so tight you could barely fit, I drove a chevy Impala. There is parking across the street though.
The beds weren't perfect of course, they werent stiff as a board but they weren't too soft either, but they were sleepable.
The drive to the attractions downtown took a little time to get to, also to the stores, but it wasnt too bad.
The wait time to actually check in was bad, it took standing in line for 35 minutes to finally reach the desk, but after that they sent us to an information desk about the specials and discounts at myrtle beach and upcoming events, very helpful and nice lady.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: loved this place and I'm coming back this year, and would definitely recommend anyone staying here.

Room Tip: room we stayed in was the schooner oceanfront double efficiency, in the schooner building

This was our second Compass Cove vacation and we would do it again! Great to have pools and ocean just outside our room at reasonable rates! Also great places within walking distance - Springmaid Pier, Woodhaven Pancake house, etc.

Had a great time on family vacation. Hotel was full, but did not feel over crowded at any of the facilities. Pools were great. Rooms clean. Staff was nice! Overall great experience. It isn't a 5 star resort but you are not paying a 5 start price!
