I think we have finally found our return to hotel. This hotel is right on the beach with beautiful views. Staff is friendly and the cleaning staff is excellent. Our room was spacious providing plenty of room for a family of four. Can not find one thing to complain about. Highly recommend.

Nice little place to stay at. Close to the beach. Pool on site. Restaurant serves a pretty good breakfast. Housekeeping keeps your room very tidy. Parking his horrible. If you can leave your car, which is impossible in Wildwood, then do it. Other then that its a good place to bring your family down to and stay.

Stayed here with my wife approximately 2 weeks ago. This was a last minute vacation and they were one of very few resorts that actually still had rooms available. We stayed in a room on the second floor which was next to stairs. Every time someone walked up or down it could be heard within. Again, not too big of... More

I have been going to wildwood since I was a kid. I have understood that when you go to WW, you do not expect the Ritz Carlton. Over the years, we have been disappointed by claims of "fully renovated" motels multiple times. I am always fearful of what we will get when we open the door. I went into this... More

Just got back from another great stay at the Crusader. I arrived at the hotel with a raging toothache (from LI to GSP Exit 4B - no fun) and the staff was able to hook me up with a local dentist (on the July 4th weekend) in fairly short order (Wow!). The rest of trip remained pain free. As for... More

The Crusader is my go-to place in Wildwood. I have stayed there many, many times and it has always been a great experience. This is the cleanest hotel that I have stayed in in WW and the staff is always friendly and extremely courteous. The beds are comfortable, the pool is always clean, the pool area is well-tended and the... More

We stayed in room 104 which is an oceanfront efficiency . The location was perfect as it was close to the beach and good food but far from the boardwalk. There is playground ,basketball courts and baseball filed within 2 blocks which is great if you have kids. The room was nice and comfortable but similar to most other wildwood... More
