“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our stay at Compass Cove was great, even though the weather was not. The room was very nice and clean with a beautiful view of the ocean. We were given the exact room that we had booked even though we arrived a day early. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant and always helpful. All of the staff were very polite. The lady at the golf office was just fabulous. She was funny and nice and very helpful. There was lots to do even though the weather kept us off the beach and the golf course, the indoor water facilities were great, enjoyed the pool and the hot tub very much. Also had a great gym (very important to me). We checked out 2 days early because of the weather without a problem, they gave us credit for our 2 nights which we totally plan on using in the spring. It was our first time visiting Myrtle Beach but definitely won't be our last and when we return it will be to Compass Cove.

Room Tip: Pinnacle Building Oceanfront (Rm 1262) great room

i have stayed here a total of 5 times. i go down to Myrtle Beach every November. Although not a gleaming new resort hotel, it is always clean, and, has a very high level of friendly service. rooms range from your basic hotel room with an added fridge and stove, to very nice 3 bedroom condos. lots of rooms with direct beach views. lots of water features...pools, lazy river, hot tubs. buffet breakfast is good and included in all golf packages.
Crows nest is their lounge and features cold drinks and bar food. lots of places to chose from in this city, but the service keeps bringing me back.

I just had a great time at Compass Cove. The oceanfront double efficiency was clean, with very comfortable beds and pillows. The view was amazing! The breakfast at Compass Rose was delicious with so much to choose from. Everyone was friendly and helpful. So many swimming pools and several lazy rivers, indoors and out. Everything we needed was right there on location. We did alot of sight seeing but you could easily spend your whole week at this resort and never have to leave the place! Beach access was just steps away! If you want a fun place to swim, exercise and relax or a place where you can just enjoy all of God's creation, you won't be disappointed at Compass Cove. I loved it so much that immediately after check out, I made reservations for next year!!! Thank you Compass Cove and thank You Jesus for a wonderful vacation!!!
Sincerely,
Linda

My mom and I recently spent 4 nights at the Compass Cove and the wonderful winter rate of 49 plus tax for oceanfront. We had a wonderful view. Not any real issues were noted, excited some workers who were doing work on, i think, the stairwell, we there really late and were singing and being loud. Also, when we got there, they told us we had to park on one of two floors because the rest of the garage was being powerwashed. The next day, we had to move our vehicle so the two floors could be powerwashed. The front desk staff were professional but very dry. But the room was very clean, was cleaned daily and was very well-valued. Would stay here again and would recommend to other guests.

Dear KentuckyTravelBug80,

We are glad to see that you enjoyed your stay. We would, however, like to apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the pressure washing of our parking garage. The company that was pressure washing the garage was able to complete the top 3 floors the first day and then continued on to the bottom 2 floors the next. This should have been better explained to you at check in and for this lack of communication on our part, we do sincerely apologize. Here at Compass Cove, we pride ourselves on great customer service and providing a clean, safe environment for our guests. We hope that you will continue to choose Compass Cove when you visit the Myrtle Beach area. We look forward to seeing you again, hopefully soon!

Sincerely,

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.

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!
