Very convenient to the Boardwalk. Rooms were recently renovated. People were very friendly. Place was kept very clean. There is a luncheonette attached to the hotel. Food was good, people were nice. My daughter accidentally put a “do not disturb” sign on the door and a plastic bag with fresh towels were hanging on her door. The hotel paid much attention to detail.

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.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the location and was very family friendly. The room was clean and spacious. Could be more modern with things in the room, but overall great hotel with a very nice view and pool.

Crusader is one of the best family friendly places to stay in Wildwood Crest. The ocean front rooms are spacious, well maintained and comfortable. Always a pleasant stay and the staff is incredibly friendly. The on site restaurant is excellent and the staff is fantastic. I've been going there since I was a kid and it just keeps getting better.

The staff at the Crusader is the friendliest we’ve experienced both in the hotel and in the restaurant! Quick check-in, great location and very clean. We’ve stayed here twice and will definitely be back! Great place to stay. 😀

Stayed in the oceanfront efficiency suite with my husband and 3 kids for 4 nights. Room was very clean and in the perfect location across from the beach. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from our balcony and my kids played in the pool every day. We will be back next year!

My family and I vacation as a collective group at least once per year (min 3 rooms); 2021 we chose Wildwoods, but our hotel experience was not great. This year (2022) was a MAJOR difference. We spotted the Crusader last season while planning for this year and we were not disappointed. The views, the upgrades the atmosphere - amazing. And we walked to almost everything. We’re already booked for 2023; and am sure other family will be joining.
