The staff are very helpful and pleasant. Room was very clean. Location is great--very close to the beach. The pool was immaculate and large enough to accommodate the people. We spent 4 nights there in early September and would definitely go back. It was a nice time of year for the beach also--not too crowded, lower rates, and absolutely perfect... More

Deciding to take a spur of the moment road trip and spend one night in Wildwood, I called from the road, and we reserved a room with a pool and ocean-view at what turned out to be a wonderfully nostalgic place. We were delighted with our experience at The Crusader from the start. The room was immaculate, and it was... More

Stayed at the end of June and will be returning. One of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was immaculate. Separate sleeping and sitting areas with a kitchenette. Especially liked having a real coffee maker to brew a nice cup of coffee and sit outside to watch the sunrise. Good location. Close to boardwalk and beach.... More

Reasonably priced, clean, close to the beach. Not dingy, but not too up to date with renovations. Big pool with a kiddie side, kid slide. Sun deck, ping pong table, some shuffle board game painted on the floor. Good views of the ocean, and boardwalk. Parks nearby. Restaurant down stairs is really really good, and cheap check it out.

We spent 3 nights at the Crusader with our family of 4 based on the reviews on this site. This was our first time to Wildwood. Many of the reviews of other hotels in the area were negative in regards to cleanliness and service. We were very happy with our stay at the Crusader. The staff at the front desk... More

Stayed at the Crusader last week with my family and I would highly recommend this motel. Seems like it has recently been renovated and is very clean. The room was very nice; comfortable beds, clean (new-ish) bathroom. The pool deck was great to use after a day at the beach. All new furniture on the deck. Plenty of tables and... More

For the pass 20 years I have been going to The Cursader Oceanfront Family Resort with my children and now my grandchildren. Janna has been the person I contacted to make the reservations every year and she extends herself to help me find the best rooms for the best price.

Having lived less than150 miles from most Jersey Shore points all of my life, one would think I have been down the shore fairly often, but not so! This was my family's first trip to Wildwood, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful the Crusader Hotel was. The front desk staff, the housekeeping staff, the pool attendants, the restaurant...

We would go back again and again. They had clean rooms,a friendly and informative staff and close to everything. The beach is prestine and right outside the door. The boardwalk is two blocks away and cape may is near too. We loved our stay.
