Great vacation as always, friendly staff clean rooms. Close to the beach, you can see the beach. Walking distance from boardwalk but far enough away that it is quiet. Can't wait to book next years trip!

It was our 2nd stay here and we loved it! Some rooms are small but overall great staff, helpful, attentive and friendly. Not overpriced. Very clean. Very close to the boardwalk. Pool was clean. Liked the end sweets with the semi private balcony.

I was really quite disappointed with this motel. The description made it sound very clean which it was not and a family style place which it was not. The pool had hairs all over in it. There was someone's exploded swim my diaper on the path around the pool where we walked to go off dive board. The room were... More

This repose is written to explain the disconnect that the reviewer and the Compass Family Resort seemed to have had last week. Firstly, it is imperative to know that the reviewer stayed at our hotel over a weekend for just two nights. Weekends in general across the country are known to be a lot more upbeat and energetic then the... More

I been coming to the compass motel now for several years and it is always the motel of my choice. I never have to worry about not having a super clean room, grounds and sparkling swimming pool. It is always immaculate! The whole staff is so friendly and helpful on any questions or requests that you may have. Thank you... More

I was sad to checkout when we did because it was another great day in wildwood crest. Beautiful beaches and warm ocean waters. Hotel had major renovations done, the kitchens are great. The pools grounds are well maintained/cleaned daily. Lots of activities for kids. See you in 2017!

We have been staying here every summer now for several years, unfortunately this years stay was disappointing and not enjoyable. I don't really have any major complaints about the actual hotel. The room was clean, the hotel property is nice and so were the people in the office. One complaint that I did have was the flies. I killed about... More

Place was very loud very late into the night. Could not get chairs near pool because people had their towels on them. The barbeques were taken throughout our vacation which didn't allow for us to use. The maid service was very good. They worked around our schedule and came back if we were still in the room. The location was... More

Upon the suggestion of family we stayed at the Compass Family Resort for 3 nights. The hotel was nice and clean and offered many amenities. I felt comfortable taking my 2 small children there. There is 1 motel between you and the beach access but it is far from beach access to the actual water. Our room was 2 queen... More
