For my baby girls first visit to the beach I decided to go ahead and book an oceanfront suite for easy beach access. What Compass Cover failed to disclose is that their oceanfront rooms are really pool-front and in order to access or even see the ocean you will need to cross the pool area.
We were given a room on the first floor which would have been fine had it not enable every person who walked by to gawk into our room. The noise from the pool area was also so loud that my baby couldn’t nap during the day.
When we requested a new room we were told that they were sold out due to the 4th of July weekend. Understandable but they did nothing in order to accommodate us for the remainder of our stay.
On top of the non-ocean front room there was still food in the sink and hair in the drain from the previous guests. Not welcoming at all.
We tried the restaurant on site for breakfast one morning and I discovered a hair in my pancakes. This was after the cooks were venturing out to the buffet to get food to serve those who ordered off of the regular menu.
On our last night there I was greeted with 3 huge roaches on the patio. A great way to end the weekend.
I definitely will not be returning and would not suggest this hotel to anyone.
