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

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
