We've been staying at the Crusader for over 7 years now and have never had any problems. The rooms are always clean and the property is well maintained too. The heated pool and sauna are a nice touch since we are usually there late September....More

Stayed here last year also. Great for the car show, cars lining up there in the morning are neat to see. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The Crusader Restaurant is great for breakfast with very reasonable prices.
