Reviewed August 8, 2012

Just returned from our vacation at the Compass. We are professionals & I have to say we were very pleased with the accomodations. The two room suite was immaculate. Enjoyed the refrigerator & flat screen TV, sun deck & pool. Would love to return to the Compass next year.

Room Tip: fantastic facility

We just returned from Wildwood Crest and enjoyed a fantastic 5 day vacation! The Compass Motel was very comfortable.....very clean......the owners were very nice. We stayed in the 2 room suite.....having the full size refrigerator was great.....the rooms were immaculate and the bathroom was very clean......no musty smell.....all fixtures were good condition......the maid service was fantastic and friendly. The rates were very reasonable.........the pool water was crystal clear and a nice size.........all outdoor areas were also very clean.......they have 2 Weber grills and they are taken apart and cleaned every night!!! I highly remember this motel and we plan on going back in the fall and definitely next summer and will stay in the efficiency suite then. I hope that many people give this motel a try........you will not be disappointed, I promise!!

Me, my boyfriend and my 4 yr old stayed there over the weekend for one night, June 30-July 1.....We stayed there for just one night, so it wasnt that bad....we stayed in a type-b room that should be big enough for 6....which it is unless you plan on being in there during the day, there is enough room to sleep six but six cannot walk around eachother from the bathroom to the bedroom or even to the sofa area....i thought it was very nice though for us 3...the pool was decent but by the time we got into it there was sand in the bottom and it wasnt as clean in the evening....but that is not because they didnt clean it...they were out there morning and night cleaning it...it was because people came right from the beach to the pool....it was about a block or 2 from the beach so that was good...there is a trolly that runs every 20 mins on Ocean Ave i believe that will take you to and from the boardwalk....but the walk there wasnt that bad either...glad we brought winter PJ's cause the air was freezing but we were not complaining lol...Lady at the front desk was nice....I think when we stay again we will consider this hotel...would i recommend it....probably not but i would inform the person that it is cheap for a average room....but it was definately not a "dive" so if you wanna get a cheap room for the weekend or a night it aint too bad, but not sure if staying any longer....

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor you dont have to carry luggage all the way up them horrible hotel steps lol...

This was our 1st time staying @ Compass and we had a good time. The motel is near the beach. They have an elevator, which of course is very helpful when you have alot of luggage. We had a 2 room suite, w/a tv in both rooms - a nice flat screen in the living room and a much older, smaller model in the bedroom. The bathroom is small, but clean. The living room had a sofa bed, which was nice. There was a full size frig & a microwave. The pool was nice and clean. Although we didn't use these things, it was great that they had them - 2 huge barbeque grills, minature golf, a small arcade, & a sun deck. The staff was pretty nice. There were a few issues - the doors need better locks, the air conditioner is very loud, & the room smelled a little musty. The rooms were clean, but that musty smell has to go! My biggest issue is the wifi! I had the worst time trying 2 stay online. Overall, the motel is nice and served its purpose.

We have been staying at the Compass for a few summers now and love it. The staff is great and helpful. The rooms are always very clean and any issue we have ever had was addressed quickly. We will be headed down twice this summer! Pool is always clean. Grills are great to have there. We have had a few issues with unruly kids running wild at all hours but that us no fault of the hotel but the parents who don't feel they need to watch their kids. Overall it is a great value and we look forward to going for years to come.
