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

My husband and I have stayed at the Crusader for the last five years as part of the NY Skyliners drum and bugle corps weekend. This year when we arrived on Friday night around 8pm we were given room 217 which was not a bedroom. The room contained a full kitchen, in adequate lighting, a full bath and a hide-a-bed... More

I went with a group and we were in 6 units. The rooms were great, the price was reasonable, in a very nice location, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back there again. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, always helpful but not intrusive. We had the option of eating in our efficiency unit, or in their very good... More

This one goes out to Alan S. whom I'm sure will be responding with his lame comebacks of the customer is never right. My family and I have stayed at the crusader for 2 years.

It is my responsibility to assure that all of our guests at The Crusader have an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately, you did not respond to the request made by the pool attendant to have your children enjoy the pool in a more appropriate manner. Therefore, I made the request myself to you and your husband in your guest room. It has... More

I have been coming to Wildwood Crest for 40+ years and randomly counting in my head, I would say that I have stayed at 20 different hotels over the years.

My family spent the weekend at this resort. It was reasonable and the rooms were clean and nicely furnished. The staff was eager to please and very friendly. We rented an oceanfront suite. The motel is located just across from the beach and a jogging path. I can't wait to return.
