“Good for Kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Spent June 8-10th with family of 6, check in was a bit of a cluster as I arrived around 4pm, and ended up having to park in the garage across the street which was almost full, then spent the next 15 minutes trying to get an elevator as their was a long line. The kids had a great time at the beach and indoor slides/lazy river, but with rate i paid I felt like the quality of the room was not on par as one of the light's power cord had a chair press against it so it would stay in the wall and decor was a little outdated, but staff was nice about everything. Food at Tiki Hut was affordable and good in my opinion, With a better rate i would probably come back.

Compass Cove is a solid beach experience in Myrtle Beach. My daughter enjoyed the pools and lazy rivers. Since we went early in the season, it was nice that the pools were heated. We unfortunately were there at the tail end of bike week and the hotel did a wonderful job accommodating everyone. They had a ton of check in staff, security, and kept the common areas clean. Always plenty of pool towels too.

Room Tip: Rooms in the Schooner Building are accessible to the parking garage and are nice because you can use...

We came down for vacation a day early the last week of May 2013, and found a really good rate on a room. The room was clean, and the staff were friendly. Guests have access to multiple pools and they were all great, and are all very kid friendly. I would highly recommend the restaurant. It was nice that we didn't have to worry about going out for dinner, especially since it was extremely crowded due to the end of bike week. We were able to eat on an ocean front patio and relax after a long drive. The food was great.

The only disappointment that I had during our stay was that our oceanfront room, was actually a bar-front room. I opened the curtain and all I could see were strangers sitting at the bar. My boyfriend liked it, however, because he didn't have to go far for a drink :)

We loved Compass Cove. Plenty of water attractions! Perfect for our 16 month old. The staff and facilities were wonderful! Great breakfast buffet!!! Location was great and parking was so easy. Our view from our room of the ocean was wonderful. Room was nice and quiet.

We have come to Compass Cove both for a couples vacation and family vacation. Both times have been great! It is so nice to have many different floor plans to choose from. We also loved knowing that even if it was cold or rainy, we would indoor pools to use. The on site restaurants are very good, and all of the staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Look at all floor plans carefully. And remember that ocean view is not the same as ocean front!

We just came back from a great golf trip in Myrtle Beach. We stayed at Compass Cove as we have been for the last 14 years. The service was great from the general manager to the smiling ladies at breakfast. Our accomodations in the 3 bedroom condos were just what the doctor ordered. The staff was very caring to meet all of our needs. Not only was it a great trip for the guys, but I would suggest the resort for a family vacation. LOTS TO DO!!! The only downside was the long lines at check in.

Located right on the beach and 10 minutes from the MB intl airport. There check-in time of 3 pm is too late in my opinion. There was a huge line up at the front desk and parking for that period was a problem too.

The building/rooms give a very old look. Getting into the elevators on a busy day can be a long wait. They have three main elevators and two additional elevators on west side.
We had an ocean front room/view. Upon entering the room were two beds, then a small kitchen facing the washroom, and then a living room area with lobby towards ocean. Very nice view there.

Kitchen had a full refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, cutlery items along with a small sink.
Washroom was the most disliked area, toilet seat was too low for a tall person, and man... those edgy flaps on the toilet seat killed my butt.

The room had a TV, multi drawer chest, closet, but the biggest drawback was the big glass window facing the hallway, so absolutely no privacy at all, unless you draw the curtains which made the room look so dark. They do offer lock and key for the small safe just above stove in the kitchen area, to keep your valuables.

All their buildings are side by side, but going from our bldg to breakfast area was a challenge on a rainy morning. Parking was not so much a problem, but on a busy day, you may need to drive around to find a spot.

The buffet breakfast was definitely enjoyable, really good.

Will I go there again???? With friends- may be, with family- probably not.
