I stayed at this establishment a few weeks ago for memorial day weekend! We had a fantastic time. The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly! They keep their pool open late so the kids were entertained all day and night! Our efficiency Unit had a brand new kitchenette. We will be back! Always a good stay at the Compass!

This is our 3rd stay at the Compass. Our family vacation consists of 5 siblings, their significant others and everyone's children. We like the Compass as it has a wide variety of rooms (from singles to 2 room efficiency and connecting rooms!), a great pool, outdoor grills and various outdoor games for the kids (mini-golf, shuffleboard, game room).
