this was our second time staying here under this ownership. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are very clean. The owners invest into making the hotel up to date with new furniture and some renovations. Very friendly and accommodating too. the light in the bath room was dim and when told about they were right on top of... More

My wife and I stayed here as kids years back and thought it would be nice to stay here with our one year old for a few days. Overall, it was average. Convenience to beach is the best part of this facility (only a block away) Staff was very friendly but cleanliness was a little on the dirty side. Rooms... 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
