This is our 3rd stay at the Compass. Our family vacation consists of 5 siblings, their significant others and everyone's children. We like the Compass as it has a wide variety of rooms (from singles to 2 room efficiency and connecting rooms!), a great pool, outdoor grills and various outdoor games for the kids (mini-golf, shuffleboard, game room). It's only... More

This was our 5th year at the Compass Family Resort and I have to say it gets better each year!! We are a large group and the owners are very accommodating. The staff is great and the rooms, property and pool are kept clean. The Compass is very close to the beach and boardwalk. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere... More

We stayed here earlier this month. Family of 7 - two rooms, our five children range in age from 9 - 23 and everyone LOVED this sweet, retro motel. Pool is so clean and nice with a diving board - huge hit with our littles. The super fun board walk is a short trolley ride away - big hit with... More

My family has stayed at this motel a few years now. I cannot say enough good things about it. The rooms were clean, the management was friendly and accomodating. Excellent location. We had a great time. We will be staying here again for sure!
