We have been staying at the Wavecrest for over a decade. The location on the beach is superb, it can't be beat, it is the prime reason we return year after year. The beach is gorgeous! We usually stay in August, but due to other vacation plans we weren't going to be able to stay this year. We decided last... More

Our stay was great at wavecrest. The workers starting from the check in office to the guys that work the pool and beach were all so pleasant. Our room was in a great location. The beach was beautiful. However, could not go into the ocean as the water was too rough. But no worries the pool was indoor opening to... More

This is our third year staying at the Wavecrest resort in Montauk New York. We rented the same corner unit in the Overlook building which is individually owned like all the units at Wavecrest. This year the owner made substantial improvements (all new appliances in kitchen and bathroom, newly painted walls, new curtains, the works) which made our stay even... More

i dont think this hotel purchased new matresses in twenty years. i would suggest you bring your own pillows and toiletries. the beach is a long steep trail from the rooms, okay when walking down, but pretty hard when walking up, espcially if carrying all your beach gear. a bit far off the main drag, personally did not feel the...

We arrived on a Monday for a four night stay. Based on previous reviews I set the bar quite low and was pleasantly surprised to what I found. The location to the beach is excellent and was never crowded. They provided chairs and umbrellas but I would suggest bringing your own beach towels. The ones they have are very small.... More

We arrived on a Monday for a four night stay. When staying here, one needs to keep in mind that this is NOT a 5 star hotel. Think beach front hotel of the 80s. Our group had four rooms, in two separate buildings. As other posters mentioned, some go the rooms have full fridges, some have dorm size fridges and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Wavecrest recently and with one big exception it compared favorably to many other places we have tried in Montauk. We had a second floor room facing the ocean in the Wavecrest building. It was a junior studio with a large terrace and a large living room with dining area and open kitchen. The... More

We made a last minute reservation here in June of 2014. The view was amazing. The WiFi was spotty but to be expected with the location. We enjoyed the newly renovated rooms. The place was clean and comfortable and the best part was falling asleep with the sound of ocean waves just outside the door. We would stay here again.

The hotel has nice views. Some of the rooms are updated, the beds are uncomfortable. Great location for a group of families to visit. The rooms have small refrigerators with microwave and stoves, some even has small ovens. The hotels does have some barbecues located on the beach and on the patio. The guard for the indoor pool is very... More

As usual we hadn't pre booked anywhere and were looking for a bed for the night, on a Saturday night in around Montauk. After much useless internet searching we drove into this place. $360 got us a room in the Panorama building. It's a very old and dated style of room, with great views of the beach and ocean. The...
