We stayed at Wavecrest yesterday, and really enjoyed the beach, and views. The front desk was very helpful and accommodated my request for a renovated room with wood flooring (no carpet) We were in Panorama building upper floor room 149. It was updated and had the wood floors, and nice view overlooking beach and Hither hills camp gound. We have... More

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend, so we booked it. We stayed in a beach dune unit, and we were right on the water, which I loved! The room did have a musty smell to it, it actually woke me up the first night! So we left the sliding glass door open a bit the next couple... More

We did a weekend stay with the girls and it was great! We stayed in rooms 143, 144 in the Panorama building. 2nd floor with deck and view of ocean. Not on the ocean, but a short walk to the beach. Our rooms were in great shape and appeared to be recently updated. The bathroom showers were not, but they... More

A wonderful experience all around. The rooms were meticulous, and the location was ideal. The staff was friendly and accommodating. My room had all new decor and a kitchen area to cook breakfast. The balcony overlooked the private beach and had a breathtaking view.

This ocean view hotel overlooked the Atlantic Ocean, with a balcony to lounge on. The room was immaculately clean,with a king size bed, dining area, and couch to relax on with a 42 inch TV after spending your day on the backyard, private beach, pool, or spending your day shopping in the busier part of Montauk. The employees there were... More

Wavecrest has been around since I was a kid. The rooms are starting to show their age but the property has been remodeled and maintained over the years. Great views of the ocean from most of their rooms. As with most Montauk hotels on the ocean, it will not be the cheapest place to stay - however to wake up... More

We have been coming out to MTK yearly and always stay at the Wavecrest. Unlike most places in MTK, the Wavecrest gives you chairs, umbrellas, and towels for the beach. This year they also added an outside patio area by the indoor pool, so that when you are with small children you can watch them and sunbathe, or on a... More

Room 134 I'd just like to throw up a giant middle finger to our hotel here in Montauk, NY. We are here for a friend's wedding, it's near the Hamptons so I knew it wasn't going to be cheap....but...when I pay $180/night I have a few expectations. Let's review a few of those expectations. An iron and ironing board...nice things... More

We just returned from what was supposed to be a romantic overnight stay at Wavecrest. We drove for 2 hours, and arrived 1 hour early. We were not permitted to check in early. We asked for a later check out and were rejected. No wiggle room concerning check in / out which was a little disappointing. The room itself was... More

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
