First visit to the Crusader for our family. Ocean front and in a beautiful location. Very clean establishment with a very nice and friendly staff. They helped us out by offering a one night booking (THANK YOU) Unlike all the other greedy establishments that require a 2-3 night minimum stay. We'll definitly return in the future.

The staff are very helpful and pleasant. Room was very clean. Location is great--very close to the beach. The pool was immaculate and large enough to accommodate the people. We spent 4 nights there in early September and would definitely go back. It was a nice time of year for the beach also--not too crowded, lower rates, and absolutely perfect... More

Deciding to take a spur of the moment road trip and spend one night in Wildwood, I called from the road, and we reserved a room with a pool and ocean-view at what turned out to be a wonderfully nostalgic place. We were delighted with our experience at The Crusader from the start. The room was immaculate, and it was... More

Stayed at the end of June and will be returning. One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was immaculate. Separate sleeping and sitting areas with a kitchenette. Especially liked having a real coffee maker to brew a nice cup of coffee and sit outside to watch the sunrise. Good location. Close to boardwalk and beach.... More

Reasonably priced, clean, close to the beach. Not dingy, but not too up to date with renovations. Big pool with a kiddie side, kid slide. Sun deck, ping pong table, some shuffle board game painted on the floor. Good views of the ocean, and boardwalk. Parks nearby. Restaurant down stairs is really really good, and cheap check it out.

We spent 3 nights at the Crusader with our family of 4 based on the reviews on this site. This was our first time to Wildwood. Many of the reviews of other hotels in the area were negative in regards to cleanliness and service. We were very happy with our stay at the Crusader. The staff at the front desk... More

Stayed at the Crusader last week with my family and I would highly recommend this motel. Seems like it has recently been renovated and is very clean. The room was very nice; comfortable beds, clean (new-ish) bathroom. The pool deck was great to use after a day at the beach. All new furniture on the deck. Plenty of tables and... More

Having lived less than150 miles from most Jersey Shore points all of my life, one would think I have been down the shore fairly often, but not so!
