Stayed for a long weekend with a large group. The Crusader is very clean, close to the beach, the staff is wonderful. Also a restaurant attached, the food is great!!!! The pool is very well maintained and everyone really enjoyed this place. I know we will be back. No complaints.

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

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.

My son planned a trip with 3 of his friends to come to Wildwood as a graduation gift to themselves but later found out that they had to be 25 years old to get a room. I offered to go down with them and stay in my own room but I didn't know if The Crusader would still allow them... More

It took my family to Wildwood Crest for the Memorial Day weekend. Almost all hotels were sold out or they were gouging the price. I like the no hassle reservation at The Crusader. They didn't want to take my credit card number until I checked-in. All we were asked to do is show up by 3:00 PM which we did.... More

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.
