“Good stay for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is an older property, but we have stayed two times and found it to be okay. We have stayed in the four story building (Schooner I think?) and both times found the room to be very clean. Incredible, unimpeded view of the ocean. Breakfast restaurant is quite nice and the food was better than expected. Many pools to choose from, including some fun kiddie pools.

Downsides? The elevators are old and sketchy. Cross your fingers there. Pools can be iffy on the cleanliness. My son got choked on water and threw up in the pool and the staff didn't seem overly concerned when I immediately notified them.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

I stayed here with a friend for one night. We had tickets for a show at the House of Blues, & I wanted to stay someplace I haven't stayed in Myrtle Beach before. (Very few places here I haven't stayed in) The room was great! Oceanfront view was amazing. Staff was very friendly, & helpful. Elevators all worked, & came to our floor quickly. Pool looked nice even though we didn't swim in it. Fun place to stay, convenient to shopping, shows, food, & airport. My only complaint is that the bathroom was small, it was very nice, & clean, just a little small. Overall I would recommend to anyone, & I will stay here again. Enjoy your trip!

Compass Cove Resort provides fantastic service for those looking for a golf packages for 2 people up to however many you may need.

My family has stayed at Compass Cove quite a number of times over the years. Everything at the resort was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very spacious, and the best were extremely comfortable. The location is convenient to get where you want to go without much hassle. I certainly will stay again on a future trip to Myrtle Beach.

Me and my 3 kids 5,9, and 10 stayed over night. Their report cards were good and didnt have school on Monday. The winter rates were advertised and it was affordable for us. The rooms are very clean, the staff was professional. The indoor pool and slide was on top of the world to my kids. That is the reason we chose this resort, for the indoor pool and slide. Only thing I could have had a problem with, was there was not any complimentary coffee. Next time I will take my own.

Room Tip: Ocean view is beautiful, They put us on the end, maybe they thought we would be loud with 3 kids.

I just came back from my second stay at Compass Cove in 3 weeks. I spent 5 days golfing with friends Oct 22 and with family for 5 days Nov 6. Compass Cove was a great place to stay. They provide me and my friends with a great golf package and then gave us great weather for my family. The rooms were great and the staff very friendly. The free breakfast for the golfing week was also a bonus.

Room Tip: This time of year an ocean front room is a great value.

Unfortunately the weather was nasty while we were here which limited what amenities we could enjoy. We stayed in the Pinnacle Towers-16th floor -2Bedroom.. When we initially walked into the room -it had the smell of Fried Fish -as if someone had just cooked and left. We had housekeeping come up and spray-which was a temporary solution. We also purchased a can of Febreeze. Even after two days and two trips from housekeeping and an entire can of Febreeze-the smell lingered. And even though it was cold and wet outside, we opened the doors and turned the heat on to air it out but nothing seemed to help. The table and kitchen countertops were also not the cleanest. But the beds were comfortable -Our room was spacious and we had a great view. Off season rates were great.
