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

We just came home from a week long stay at the Commander-by-the-Sea. We invited friends and family down to join us mid week. We all had a wonderful time! This was our first trip back to Wildwood in 10 years and found the Commander to be just as clean, comfortable and friendly as it was 10 years ago. The same... More

The Commander has always been a "Happy Place" for me. My family started staying at this motel 41 years ago. I had not been there in 9 years, but found it to be just as great as it always was. The same family has owned it for all these years and they make you feel welcome and have a friendly... More

This was my second stay at the Commander. We had a 3rd floor oceanfront efficiency room with a balcony. Lots of greats: location, balcony, views, beach, pool, kitchenette, owners, staff. The only very minor minus I would mention is that the beds are a little too firm, however, they are not cheap beds so that isn't the problem; I just... More

The place was recommended by a friend because it was clean, great location, and heated pool. Our friend was right on all accounts! Some other reviews are spot on with cleanliness, proximity, and friendliness of the staff, etc. This was a girlfriend get away for the night and was a great choice. Not fancy, but impeccably clean and we loved... More

A relaxing place, it felt like we were part of the family:) We stayed a few days and wish we planned to stay longer:) Its so close to beach, and the shuttle, which staff recommended brought us right to the boards. Its very clean and everything in the room worked perfectly. The efficiency allowed us to snack and save on... More
