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

I did not want to leave this amazing spot. It is neat and simple, very laid back, and the view just doesn't get better.looking forward to being there again. The room had everything you need with full kitchen and stocked very well.it made it sensible and more affordable to plan a vacation like this. A good family oriented resort

The room we got was very old and had a bit of a mildew odor. It dissipated once we opened the doors to let in some fresh air. Our unit was in the waters edge building and it was very close to the ocean and the indoor pool. I just wish that they would let you know more information about... More

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
