My organization has been staying at the Crusader for more than 15 years and is our 'go to' family friendly resort whenever we go 'down the shore' to Wildwood. The motel is right on the beach so no need to drag tons of things down the street to the beach. Rooms and efficiencies are always clean and neat, many have been recently upgraded with new flooring and paint. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. You are only a short walk to the boardwalk and there are bicycle rentals within blocks in any direction if you so desire. The resort restaurant is basic but very good for breakfast, coffee and lunch. The Crusader is definitely one of the best places to stay in Wildwood Crest.

Hotel's Favorite
This beachfront motel is a must stay, the rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed, the pool area is immaculate, one of the cleanest pools I have ever seen. The location is perfect,a short walk to the boardwalk and right on the beach. Beautiful ocean views and plenty of parking. Bring your bike they have a rack for that too. The staff is attentive and friendly the General Manager Jon Hawes is a gentlemen and always around to greet his guests and attend to their needs. We have stayed there three years in a row and they always deliver on a good time. Many thanks to the staff for the great family memories.

Spent Labor Day Weekend with a group of about 50 friends - everything was excellent. Just went this past weekend for a getaway with hubby and had such a wonderful time. The Hotel is spotless! The pool is amazing! The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet! And I love the entire staff!!! So friendly and personable! Oh and the cafe has great breakfast treats!

Arrived Friday to a clean totally refreshed room with ocean view. The front desk made our late check in easy & convenient. Plenty of towels. Staff all friendly & made me feel totally safe with masks. Pool was wonderful to swim in ~ The deck clean and the shuffle board saw lots of action with several family & friends enjoying the pool & board. Saturday night the Crusader allowed the family to have an enjoyable supper on the deck with music. Check out was a breeze on Monday. Thanks Crusader Resort for THE Best time in ALL of 2020. Clean, close to boardwalk, shopping, bike rentals and grocery store AND the beach! Saw 3 sunrises on the beach which are MY personal favorite views from my deck.
