Wavecrest is a simple place with a great beach location and view. On location, it's literally steps away from the beach from any room -- it doesn't get any better. Being next to the state park and private homes, even the most crowded weekends in Montauk don't feel crowded on this beach. We've come as a family for several years... More

The Special Low Season Rates will cost( $26.05 per night for two people) MORE than if you took the regular low season rate! And it is not breakfast & dinner for 2. It's a voucher towards your meals. And 4 of the 6 establishments were not yet opened for the season! You are required to pay CASH up front. I... More

We have been coming here every year for 4th of July week and have stayed in every building and many different rooms. We like the different room configurations (studio, one bedroom, 2 queens vs. one and a couch). Each configuration has suited our needs at different points as our children have grown from babies to teens. We love the variety... More

I stayed at the Wave Crest Resort with extended family to attend a relative's wedding at the exclusive Gurney Resort in Montauk (too expensive for us!), so I can speak to what 5 rooms were like. Although each room had the basics - two queen beds, (small) bathroom with shower, kitchenette and porch with beach view, that left a lot... More

I first stayed at the Wavecrest in the 1970s as a teenager. Over the years, there have been some renovations but the rooms were decent. My husband and I stayed in a waterfront room in the Waters Edge building. We arrived at 2:27PM, 3 minutes before check-in but we were told in a rather surly manner that our room wasn't... More

I have been going to the Wavecrest since I was a teenager. This place never disappoints! The view from our room was amazing! The room is spacious and clean. Love that there is a kitchen in each room. The staff is always friendly and helpful! Rainy day, no problem! Take a dip in the indoor pool. If you want to... More

Originally a couples weekend, we wound up taking the kids. First off, Montauk is a beautiful natural environment. This place is a motel comprised of condos that people rent out. So it's luck of the draw on your accommodations. The room I stayed in was beautifully done and comfortable. We were in the water's edge building, beautiful view and very... More

The place is ok, stayed there because we decided to get few more extra days by the beach and our regular place and most of the other ok places were taken, stayed here. On one hand seems like it was recently renovated, on the other hand the toilet is a complete disaster! And they would constantly have no towels for... More

My wife and I stayed at the Wavecrest resort for the weekend in mid-May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in our favorite corner unit in the Overlook building room 101 which is the quietest and most private room in the resort. No room above, below or to the one side and the room is in fantastic condition having... More
