Have you tried a wire crate instead of a plastic one? Maybe he would feel less confined? Is he next to your bed at night and at the same level so he can see you? This is key to getting him settled down.
Have you made sure to clean the crate throughly with a cleaner specifically made to remove the odor of the dog mess? If not, he will continue to mess again because the odor is a signal to him. I'm sorry, I'm sure this is frustrating for you. If you've tried these things I would then go to the ex-pen idea. Still, it needs to be next to your bed. I don't think I personally would put him in the bed with the pottying at night thing happening right now.
