I just got home from my 5th stay at the Commander in as many years. My family travels with my cousin and her family, and our stay was superb. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner, smiling Suzanne. Our rooms were ready when we arrived, and we were allowed to check in prior to check in time. As... More

This is my go-to motel for a quieter getaway with my wife. Been going there for close to 30 years and still owned and greeted by the same family. Although very much kid friendly, it is in a quieter location of the Wildwoods located directly on a pristine beach. The Motel is kept METICULOUSLY clean. This time we stayed in... More

This was my first time staying at this motel and I was very impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. Also the room was spotless and had a very nice view of the sundeck and ocean. The evening trolley stops right out front and drops you off at the boardwalk, very convenient. Even the morning complimentary coffee is delicious! The... More

Very clean. Staff and owners friendly and attentive. Grills immaculate and pool area spacious compared to others. Wish the rooms were a little larger but would sacrifice space for the cleanliness that provided.

I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Commander. Great beach views, the rooms are well maintained and clean, and the price is reasonable. Staff was great and patient with our team. I loved the fact it is family owned since the beginning and the pride shows on the property. I will definitely stay again! My only recommendation would... More

I just returned today from two nights at the Commander. Upon checkin we were greated by two lovely ladies. We arrived a bit early, not expecting to check in but our rooms were ready. We had no idea what to expect. We had never been to Wildwood crest. We were here for a Basketball tournament with 9 boys and their... More

Right on the beach, well maintained, and with a lot of returning clients. This usually says it all. You probably don't clean your BBQ as they do to the 3 of them every day. Quiet when it has to be at night and friendly to kids but a little on the stiff side though. Staff was very helpfull, caring, and... More

This is by far one of the best places I have stayed at in all my years travelling. I have been all around the world in my life and this is the cleanest, friendliest place. Look forward to staying here again next vacation.

We were looking for a quick, quiet beach getaway, and after looking at Trip Advisor, booked Commander-By-The Sea. I was a little wary when Suzanne said our room was by the office, but no worries. A 2-room, double Queen bedded unit, it was quiet and had to be one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. Everything worked.... More
