I called to see if we could get a refund a few weeks before our trip. The gentleman that I spoke to was very curt and uncaring. I shared with him that I simply no longer felt comfortable bringing my unvaccinated small children such a distance with COVID rates rising. He basically said, you read the policy. We refunded people last year. It is business as usual this year. Wow, what an attitude for a business that is supposed to cater to families. Not family friendly at all. Total disregard for the fears and anxiety levels of customers. He did not even pretend to care about my feelings as a mom. Please read the fine print at this resort and know that once you complete the booking, you will not receive a refund for any reason. You will not even receive a caring ear. Disgraceful! I would NEVER recommend this resort.

Hotel's Favourite
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.

Had a great sty as usual at the Crusader. My family and I have been staying here ever year and it’s been wonderful. My only complaint was when I booked online it didn’t preference what floor we’d be on and got stuck in the first floor. It was clean and the workers are amazing just that we have older kids and like a little more quiet and not being so close to the pool with the little ones. Next time I’ll call and make sure I ask for the 3rd floor. Minor complaint and we still have an amazing time. Thank you Crusader and see you next year!

The staff is so friendly and vibrant. The rooms were very clean! I love that you can txt a request or status update. The location itself is great- saw fireworks from the balcony. Close enough to bikes and boardwalk
