Very nice place at a very reasonable price. Liked the convenience of kitchenette, location is perfect-right on beach at end of boardwalk! Pull out sofa could use "revamping" -guests that slept on that said very uncomfortable - but beds in bedroom were fine.

We enjoyed our stay at the Crusader because the room was clean and well-maintained, and it was within easy walking distance of a few coffee shops and bike rental places. Beware the "street side" rooms, though. We had assumed that this referred to one of the (quiet) side streets

We rent the same room every year for the NJ Firemen's Convention. Very clean - staff is friendly and price is comparable for the area. Definitely not a rowdy, party crowd hotel, so if you're looking for that type of atmosphere this isn't the hotel for you. Already booking for

Hi . The Crusader has room type 1S that features 2 bathrooms, 1 king bed and 1 queen sleeper sofa. You can add a type 2B with an interconnecting door to give you an additional bathroom and 2 double beds. This would be on the sunset view side of the building. Alternatively we have rooms with ocean views that have 1 bathroom and 2 double beds and could guarantee side by side rooms Please give us a call so that we can better assist you Jon Hawes - General Manager

Do they have grills there to cook dinner?
Hi! We do not have grills at the Crusader but we do have a coffee shop serving breakfast and lunch all day until 6 PM. It is very affordable and convenient. Thank you for checking. Sincerely, Jana

Hi! My apologies for not seeing your question before now. Every unit during the summer season has a price which is quoted for 4 persons. In the off season the units are priced for 2 persons. There are also room maximums that must be considered. The additional person charge is $15 per person per night. There are exceptions. If I could know your dates and your last name I could double check the reservation for you. You could write to us directly from our web site. Thank you, Jana
