I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Commander. Great beach views, the rooms are well maintained and clean, and the price is reasonable. Staff was great and patient with our team. I loved the fact it is family owned since the beginning and the pride shows on the property. I will definitely stay again! My only recommendation would... More

I just returned today from two nights at the Commander. Upon checkin we were greated by two lovely ladies. We arrived a bit early, not expecting to check in but our rooms were ready. We had no idea what to expect. We had never been to Wildwood crest. We were here for a Basketball tournament with 9 boys and their... More

Right on the beach, well maintained, and with a lot of returning clients. This usually says it all. You probably don't clean your BBQ as they do to the 3 of them every day. Quiet when it has to be at night and friendly to kids but a little on the stiff side though. Staff was very helpfull, caring, and... More

This is by far one of the best places I have stayed at in all my years travelling. I have been all around the world in my life and this is the cleanest, friendliest place. Look forward to staying here again next vacation.

We were looking for a quick, quiet beach getaway, and after looking at Trip Advisor, booked Commander-By-The Sea. I was a little wary when Suzanne said our room was by the office, but no worries. A 2-room, double Queen bedded unit, it was quiet and had to be one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. Everything worked.... More

Don't hesitate to book your Wildwood Crest vacation stay at the Commander By The Sea. While nothing fancy, the rooms are clean and bright and nicely appointed. Everyone is pleasant, helpful and inviting. They have grills for cooking out and plenty of tables to enjoy your meals outside. The rooms are just a few steps from the beach and when... More

Wow, we just sort of picked this place based on a local referral service, a last minute arrangement just to have a base to visit the area for 2 days. I'm from NJ, used to vacation further north at the shore in Lavallette; never been to Wildwood or Cape May. This is an unassuming 3 story stucco motel right on... More

As Lcarlotta stated he is a police officer so my guess is he is a little more paranoid and on-guard regarding his surroundings than the rest of us. And that is fine and understandable. I hope he reads this because this is a sincere,accurate response from a longtime Commander patron. I have been going here for 10 years. I stay... More

We have not stayed here this year, but have stayed there previously for a week in the summer for approx 15 years straight. Friendly, clean, great service, always updating to the best of their ability. Nicco is right.......... it's the shore and you are not going to get a Vegas-type resort anywhere. Great location, clean pool....yep, they will wash the... More
