I love this place. I've stayed twice and both were great. Very clean and comfortable. I love how there is so much to do on rainy days or even just to enjoy after a long day. The family that runs this place is amazing and handles every problem quickly and kindly. Great family place or even just for a couple...

We booked at The Compass, as first time Wildwood visitors, because we have good friends that have been staying there since the 70's - 3 generations. I would not have dreamed of staying anywhere else - I have heard so much about The Compass over the years. When I called we requested a ground floor and we got an end...

We stayed as a family 2 adults 2 children and we love the Compass. The amenities are great for the price, clean rooms, and obvious renovations. We really liked the pool because it's a seperated deep end from shallow end but also has a fenced off kiddie pool which was great because my son is older then my daughter and...

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...

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...

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...
