We really enjoyed our stay with The Crusader! Room was cleaned & made up daily. The staff was so nice to us- from giving us insights on where to go for dinner, to just saying hello & asking how we were. We've stayed elsewhere in the Crest. My uncle stays here almost every year & suggested it to us &... More

This hotel is so clean. The staff is always working on something, keeping it spotless. I would highly recommend staying here. They have comfortable beds, a friendly staff and what is most important to me, very very clean hotel rooms. We will stay here again for sure.

Originally booked the room for 4 days and 3 nights. Extended our stay to 2 more nights, we had such a great time. Fabulous staff, very friendly and... More

This was our first time back to Wildwood, NJ in a few years...we've been going to Ocean City, NJ. Well, as a family we were very pleased with Wildwood and especially with the Crusader! We got an Ocean View room with a private balcony, it was fabulous. The hotel and rooms were spacious and clean! :) We had wonderful help... More

We were absolutely delighted with our recent stay at the Crusader Resort. This time we booked an oceanfront room with a remarkable view of the Wildwood beach and the ocean, and we will book this very same room if we can for our next visit. The suite was bright, well appointed, and modern, including a comfortable sitting room with a... More

We recently took a familly trip and rented two seperate rooms at The Crusader. One room was a newly renovated ocean front room with a private balcony. That room was very nice. The second room smelled like cigarette smoke covered over with many air fresheners. It was in a section of the third floor that was among several older rooms.... More

Alan S, General Manager at The Crusader Oceanfront Family Resort, responded to this review

I am very disappointed and surprised to hear of your dissatisfaction with Crusader Resort. I did some research regarding your complaints and I will address them individually. I was not aware that your suite had a cigarette smoke odor, and did not find anything to that effect noted on the housekeeper's report for that day. I wish you had made... More
