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...

What we found would disgust you-thats right fresh blood stains(not ours) on the sheets. Management office was closed, so what to do, put towels over blood spot and had a restless night sleep.Spoke with office following morning,... More

My wife and I took a quick anniversary getaway to Montauk the week before Memorial Weekend. We wanted to stay at the beach but didn't want to spend a lot of money doing so. We came upon the Wavecrest and decided to book a room in the beach dunes building. This building is right at the edge of the beach.... More

A nice price for the Montauk area but you get what you pay for. Room seemed clean until you look under the covers! There were copious amounts of Unkown types stains and hairs on the "clean" sheets. The glasses supplied in the room for drinks smelled like fecal matter. We were not able to complain to any staff member because... More

Pleasantly surprised. We booked this from Toronto based on other reviews from Trip Advisor. Per someone else’s suggestion, we specifically booked room 122 in the beach dune building. It was a renovated room and right on the beach – just perfect! You can watch the sun rise from the balcony. There are 2 high top chairs to sit in as... More

I announced several weeks ago, "We are taking one last family vacation! A week-end in Montauk!" Our son will graduate from High School in June, our daughter will be entering an intense medical program of study in September--this would be our last get-away for quite some time. Days later, our daughter had invited her boy friend and our son had... More
