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

The place is CLEAN, comfortable beds, great layout, Kept and maintained well. Good size pool. Great place for family. So convenient to the beach boardwalk and restaurants. The family owned restaurant was also great food snd service. We would definitely come back and recommend. Thanks...Crusader for making our vacation successful.

I have been traveling to Wildwood for about 25 years and this is my first stay at this hotel. Very clean room, updated, clean grounds and the owners/staff are always tidying up. I booked the trip last minute and since this hotel requires a bank check for the deposit and it would not arrive before check-in day, the owner Alan... More

Jenna and Allen were very accommodating and friendly and answered any questions we had about our room, the motel, or dining around town (even though we vacation there 4x... More

We just spent one glorious week in Wildwood N.J. at this Hotel. Needless to say that our hosts Jana and Allan were simply the best anywhere down here. Let me explain, first of all they treat you like family upon arrival that is why I bring treats for them upon arrival. The staff is just the very best and I... More

This was our 8th year at the Crusader! It is a clean and family friendly hotel in the Wildwood Crest. We have 3 sons ages 12, 9 & 9. It is perfect for us! I recommend it to anyone traveling with kids.

My family and I have been coming to the Crusader for a few years. We have tried other hotels in the area and nothing compares to the Crusader. We will not go anywhere else. It is clean and well maintained. The staff is fabulous!!!

We stayed at the Crusader for the 4th of July weekend and had a great time. The staff is very friendly and always cleaning something on the premises. We have 2 kids which means we come with way too many bags. I love that they have carts and an elevator because it really makes that process much easier. The pool... More

We have vacationed at The Crusader for 4 years now and each year just gets better! The rooms and grounds are immaculate, and the staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. The pool is serviced daily and has a gated area for the little ones. In addition to lounge chairs, the sun deck has tables & chairs and is a perfect... More

This is my second time staying at the Crusader, for a family reunion. We've stayed in many a place over the years. After some good ones, and a few not so good, The Crusader seems to be a good fit for us. Its definitely one of the more accommodating places we've stayed in. On both visits, the management working the... More
