“ALWAYS pleased with Compass Cove!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is ALWAYS our spot to stay when visiting Myrtle Beach!! We appreciate the cleanliness of the rooms, the oh-so-comfortable beds, the helpful staff & the GREAT deal we always get on the price of our room!! On our recent visit, renovations were being done around the usual room in the Pinnacle Building where we stay, so we were upgraded from a king room to a king suite . . . no extra charge!! They also accomodated our request for a room on a higher floor this time . . . 14 instead of 3 or 4!! The only problem we are ever faced with at Compass Cove is the tight-fit parking in the garages; but that small issue never sways our decision to stay at this place that feels so much like home away from home!!!!

If you are planning a golf trip to Myrtle Beach the Compass Cove is the place to go. The golf director and the golf department will plan your entire trip. You select the golf courses , tee times ,and number of rooms with breakfast included . They will do the rest. The cost is very reasonable.
They are terrific. This year we had 22 golfers attend . Next years trip is already planned.

We stayed at Compass for the first time this past weekend for a romantic get-a-way and were pleasantly surprised. There are so many choices at Myrtle Beach and it can feel very overwhelming. We would strongly recommend this hotel and have already booked a trip in May to bring the kids.

We love that it`s pet friendly. We like that it gives discounted breakfasts to snowbirds in their Compass Rose restaurant. We appreciate the weekly cleaning of our rooms and daily checks for fresh towels, soap, etc. We like how they continually upgrade the property. This year in Feb. they replaced all of the cement around the pools and patios with interlocking brick. They also replaced the sprinkler systems in the parking garages.
The staff are very friendly and the security is very visable.
This our third year and we plan go again next year.
Thank you Compass Cove!

My family and I have stayed here several times, and we have always enjoyed the accomodations. The front desk has always been professional and considerate of our needs.
This past weekend, my college-age daughter visited here with several friends based on her experiences of when she was younger.
All four of them raved about everything, especially the heated polls

We stayed there over a recent weekend. The place is undergoing a lot of renovation, lots of dust, elevators not working and the parking deck was a mess. The room we had was small and definitely not updated. The entire place needs to be "refreshed" a bit. Having said all that, the staff are friendly and helpful. The pool area was good and enjoying for a short bit. Overall, it was just OK.

Dear Fishbaby1,

Thank you for sharing a review of your recent stay at Compass Cove. We greatly appreciate your feedback. We are happy to see you found our staff helpful and that you enjoyed our water amenities. I would like to apologize if you were inconvenienced by our current renovations. We do take the time during the winter months to try to modernize our resort. I hope in the future you will consider staying with us again so that you may enjoy the upgrades we are currently making to the rooms, as well as our property. We are currently updating our pool decks and parking garage to visually pleasing pavers and we have purchased new pool furniture (just to name a few!) We hope you and your family will stay with us again soon. Thank you for choosing Compass Cove Resort.

We had a great stay this weekend! Nice clean rooms and great service! Although the pools looked very nice we didn't have time to take a swim. Maybe next time cause we will definitely be back! Hope to see you this summer.
