Took the grands midweek to celebrate the end of school. Check in was fast and friendly. The day we arrived was close to 100 degrees and the a/c in our efficiency was on for us and working! This motel is so clean. Not only are the rooms clean but they clean your inside and outside windows, you sitting area outside... More

My 14 year old son and I were down in Wildwood for a basketball tournament. There was a 3 night minimum. Unfortunately we could not stay all 3 nights but this is standard for summer weekends. The friendly staff was very accommodating. The location was very good. Our room was as advertised, and while a little dated, it was very... More

After much research we chose Compass Family Resort! Excellent choice! Will return. Our family spent 4 nights here. Very clean, friendly and comfortable. The price is very affordable. We were in 301 and had an adjoining room with my brother and his family. It's the small things that are noticed, such as dishwashing liquid for the dishes. Always had plenty... More

The Compass efficiency has everything you need. This family friendly location has been welcoming to us for years. It is clean, convenient to restaurants, boardwalk, & beach. The amenities are top notch. The owners are extremely hospitable & well aware of the surrounding area. An awesome place to stay with awesome owners!

If you are low maintenance, this is a good place for you. Negatives: No wifi reception in the room and spotty outside, no ice machine or shampoo (first time I've encountered that ever), cruddy little tv in the bedroom (they should put in LCDs like the living room), housekeeping didn't replace the soap 2 of 4 days and never replaced...

CompassMotel, Owner at Compass Family Resort Motel, responded to this review

The Compass Family Resort hosts thousands of families every year, most of which are repeat guests. After reading this review, we couldn't imagine not taking the opportunity to clarify a few points made by the reviewer. First and foremost, we have never ran an illegal bar in our gameroom. The VFW post staying at our hotel made arrangements to utilize... More

We have been coming here for years and notice that improvements are made each year. This year the kitchens were totally renovated. New sinks, cabinets and granite countertops. The upkeep of the place is great. Each year we look around to see what is new. This is a family operated motel, not only updated yearly, but the atmosphere and friendliness... More

This is run by a nice family who always keeps it clean and stays up to date with the upkeep. We have been coming here for years. We prefer the Crest to Wildwood and North Wildwood. It is a family atmosphere. They also reserve short term stay. Some of the hotels are starting to ask for you to book full... More

My family and I have stayed at this hotel twice. Both times have been great! The rooms are clean, the pool and mini golf course are nice, and the staff is very friendly! One thing I found really nice is how they have carts you can put your bags on to take to your room. This is much easier than... More

My family and I stay here every year the last week in July. We have many rooms since we have a big family. Staff always pleasant and rooms are very clean! The motel is close walking distance to the boardwalk. Can not wait till next year!
