This was my first time staying at this motel and I was very impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. Also the room was spotless and had a very nice view of the sundeck and ocean. The evening trolley stops right out front and drops you off at the boardwalk, very convenient. Even the morning complimentary coffee is delicious! The... More

Very clean. Staff and owners friendly and attentive. Grills immaculate and pool area spacious compared to others. Wish the rooms were a little larger but would sacrifice space for the cleanliness that provided.

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
