I stayed at Wavecrest (unit 166 in the Waters Edge Building) with my wife and daughters in September. The hotel is in a great location, right on the beach. From our huge balcony on the second floor we had an unobstructed ocean view that was just amazing. When I think of Montauk, this is exactly what I am looking for.... More

Great spot right on the beach, beautiful view - couldn't ask for a better location. The room my girlfriend and I stayed in was nice, although the first room we were given was definitely not nice at all - old, small and kind of smelly. After unloading the car, putting everything from a loaded cooler into the fridge, etc. another... More

Friends turned us on to this place about 10 years ago and we love that they did. Its clean, well managed, great staff from the people in the office when you check in to the ladies cleaning your room. You can see the ocean from every room. They have their own private beach used only by the people staying there.... More

We went to Montauk for a 3-day weekend, and ended in Wavecrest through a friend's tip. We are a family of 4, children 5 and 2, and Wavecrest was a great option for us. Rooms are large enough to fit 2 adults, 2 children, and a pack and play, if needed. Our room was in the Panorama building, with great... More

Just returned from 3 nights in a beautiful room with a balcony right on the beach. You can't get closer to the ocean. The ladies at the front desk were lovely and very accommodating. The renovated pool was better than ever and John, the lifeguard,is always very welcoming.

Rooms vary in size, condition, view. Generally the place is dated (though some rooms have been renovated). The front desk staff need service training as they as so unfriendly….good thing you only have to deal with them at check-in/check-out… The beach is beautiful and they do offer chair placement service on the beach. The pool area has been refurbished and... More

I reserved a room with two queen beds and wood floors. The ladies at the front desk told me "sorry we don't have that room available, we over booked." Wave Crest left my family of 4 with no where to stay. The front desk staff did not seem to care that we had travelled two hours, waited til 3 o'clock,... More

We stayed in August for 2 night and had 2 different rooms because I booked last minute and thats all they had left. The first night we stayed in the Waters edge building. It was steps to the beach and was a studio with an older kitchen and bath but who cares, we go for the beach. Bed was comfy... More
