This was our 5th year staying at the Crusader for our annual father/son fishing trip. Fantastic stay once again. The room now has a full size refrigerator and no carpet which is a huge plus. The entire place is spotless! The pool fantastic!

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.

We've been staying at the Crusader Resort for the last ten years atleast. I can't say enough about the staff! The services all around are incredible! You have always gone above and beyond our expectations and we thank you all for that! The pool and sauna are my personal favorite, although you can't beat the view for the fireworks either! The restaurant is plus and the take out spot is a great perk especially for a long day on the beach! Beautiful ocean views too, although we prefer the street view because we get to see all those beautiful Hot Rods! We've met so many nice people over the years, many we consider close friends now. That's just one more reason we look forward to coming back every year! Listen, I could write a book but let me just leave it like this. Thank you all for giving all of us memories that will last a lifetime!!!

The Crusader is a great hotel located beach front. The room is immaculate. Every day we would come back and everything looked so nice and clean. The pool area is well maintained. The rates are very reasonable. This was our third visit this summer. Can’t wait til next year. We love the pre check in ease. You made everything so convenient. Thank you for everything!

It was our first time staying at the Crusader. Our family grew up going to Wildwood Crest every summer. Many fond memories. We enjoyed the Crusader. Times have changed in the Wildwoods, hotel changes, restaurant changes. The Crusader was enjoyable. Recommend the hotel of yesteryear. New mattresses recommended. Evening quiet time was excellent.
