It started out rough as my reservation was for the night before my arrival. I should have double checked my confirmation, instead just printed it and put it in the car.With that said, they should have called me when I did not show instead of just cancelling my reservation without trying to contact me to verify I was not coming....

We did enjoy our stay in august The lazy river was good but full of unwatched kids (parents not hotel fault) and had alot of things floating in it. The room I didn't find that clean - to our standards. Felt dirty but we wiped it all down. Free DVD rentals was a nice extra. Location is great being right... More

We stayed at Compass Cove from August 23 to August 31 2014. We went with our two children 13 and 14 years old. This was again a very nice experience, with lots of indoor and outdoor pools with a variety of hot tubs. The check-in and check-out was easy as the girls at the front desk were excellent and knowledgable.... More

Great location. The staff helped us at the front desk was very friendly. Our room was not ready when we checked in. So we waited 20 mins as we have told by the staff. When we went back to registration to get our keys after 20 mins, the room wasn't ready. The front desk staff offered us free dinner at... More

I cleaned everything myself before we settled in, as I travel with cleaning supplies. We waited 3 hrs for towels, there were only 2 in... More

We were in need of a beach vacation, and we decided to book the Compass Cove after reading other reviews and getting a decent deal from the Myrtle Beach website.We were not overly familiar with the Myrtle Beach area, last having visited it over 25 years ago. Check-in time was 3:00, and it was a zoo with long lines both... More

Where to begin? Started out on a good note. When we arrived they had us down for 1st floor room, and they happily moved us to a 5th floor when I asked to be moved higher. It was down hill from there. Pool was over run by kids with no super vision. Hotel could care less and do not try... More
