Reviewed October 7, 2013

Headed to Myrtle Beach after receiving our furlough notices and arrived at the Compass Cove without a reservation. Kristen at the front desk was wonderful and soon managed to get us in the room we wanted. Even though it was an ocean view it looked out over the ocean so we could watch the sunrise each morning. Room was clean and everything worked perfectly. Bed was the most comfortable we've slept in at a hotel. Breakfast was included and had all the normal items you would ask for at breakfast and served with a southern smile. We always stay at the Compass Cove when in Myrtle Beach and it never disappoints.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms on upper floors give you a great view and are almost as good as ocean front.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel last weekend. It is very nice, close to the beach, with several nice swimming pools. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only problem is location to restaurants, bars, boardwalk. If you want to be within walking distance of the boardwalk, you need to stay on North ocean blvd, not south ocean blvd. This hotel is approx 2.4 miles from the boardwalk.

Room Tip: Ocean, or pool view rooms are the best. Also first floor rooms are very convenient.

Dear Monica K,

Thank you for choosing Compass Cove and taking the time to write this review. We are glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Compass Cove is located on the south end of Myrtle Beach away from the hustle and bustle. It is however a quick drive to most Myrtle Beach attractions. We look forward to becoming your first choice destination when you visit the Myrtle Beach area. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon!

We had a "deluxe" room in the smaller schooner building. This building appears to be older than the other towers, but don't let that fool you, it was still nice. The room had a great view of the ocean, nice sized bathroom, full size refrigerator and microwave. I loved the fact that the parking garage was attached to the building. It was the shortest walk to the room I have ever had at the beach. The staff here seemed friendly for the most part. For those of you that like your room cleaned early, the room service was a little slow. This did not bother us, since we got a late start each day. They have PLENTY of pool options (indoor, out, lazy rivers, slides) with most of them being heated. They also have a free DVD rental service (Works just like Red Box). I could not give this resort a full five stars, because I do believe they need to look into a few small details. One being, they need to eliminate the roaches. (Over the last couple of years I have noticed an increase in roaches in the Myrtle Beach area as a whole). It's not a major problem yet, as they seem to mostly be on the grounds and not in the building itself (We did find one in the room! Yuck). But, one of the last things people want to see is bugs in or on the property they are staying with. The second thing is that there needs to be a designated smoking area outside of the pool area. Do not allow people to smoke around heavy traffic areas (pools, balcony, etc.) Lastly, they need to have some staff members "patrolling" and cleaning the pools throughout the day. This would help keep the pool area looking nice, and the kids "in-check". Having stated those small issues, we still very much enjoyed our stay here, and hope these issues are resolved before next year as our stay would then be near perfect.

BOTTOM LINE: Great place for the money, Clean rooms, Nice staff, Great ocean view, Large pool selection, Great parking, Minor issues.

I have stayed in this hotel several times and I can honestly say this is the best place I have ever stayed! The rooms are extremely clean and well kept. Everyone that works here is beyond helpful and friendly. I will never stay anywhere else.

Celebrating our 2nd anniversary at Myrtle Beach. I picked Compass Cove thanks to all you trip advisors! Unfortunately cannot comment on the amenities too much, but i'll give the info I can. First off if you want a room that has the ocean view, don't get a room on the first or even 2nd level. Those face out to/ over the pools & shuffleboard decks. Thanks to the nice staff they moved our room from the first level to the fourth! AWESOME VIEW! Staff there were very nice and accommodating. Room was clean, had microwave, fridge, eating utensils, HDtv & DVD player. Shower didn't have much pressure, but it worked fine. AC wasn't putting out cold air upon arrival, but less than 2hours later it was fixed by reporting it to the front desk. Quiet at night and usually in morning. Beds were very firm, plenty of blankets and all clean. Our first time there, but not our last!

Room Tip: If you want a room that has the ocean view, don't get a room on the first or even 2nd level. Tho...

Words cannot describe our love for this place! My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon here and we were ready to come back on our way to check-out. The staff is amazing, the location is great, the tiki bar is a MUST! We met Marcus (the bartender) there last year and he was there again this year and he remembered us! He's definitely an asset to their staff. The house keeping staff did an amazing job attending to our room. The front desk staff is just full of smiles.

We've never seen a frowning face here and our fellow guests are always extremely friendly and happy. I guess when you wake up to blue skies, gorgeous sandy beaches and the sound of waves crashing onto shore, you really don't have much to be upset about! Next year, we'll be here again for our anniversary and I'm sure we'll continue the Compass Cove tradition as we have for the past 5 years. We love Compass Cove and I'm sure if you go, you will too!

Room Tip: The Mariner building is the BEST!

Loved Compass Cove... Great price and lots of room... We enjoyed the pools. There were so many that when one got a little crowded we would just move to another.Each pool was also very clean... We stayed in the Pinnacle corner suite and the room was clean and plenty big enough for our family of 6. They do not provide coffee or dish detergent and sell it downstairs at an expensive price so buy before you go. Never had to search for pool towels because they are well stocked at each pool... Even staying at Disney we have had trouble with not having enough towels... The parking is really tight and you will probably have to park across the street in the additional parking at some point but it's locked and you must have your room key to get in... Very safe. Breakfast had plenty of options for everyone and they changed it up each day we were there. We will be back.
