I called an emergency number 3 times and left a detailed message. The number happened to be the owner, an older woman. My wife and I stayed... More

Just wanted to say what a wonderful time my wife & I had. The staff was great, and the room was exceptional! Ocean Views and steps away from the Beach! We can not wait to come back in July. Even though this was our first stay here, we felt like we belonged. If your thinking of coming to Wildwood Crest,... More

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
