My husband and 2 kids (age 5 & 9) visited the hotel during 4th of July weekend. We stayed in the Waters Edge building, 2nd floor room 170. Kudos to whomever owns this room, it's updated and has hardwood floors. If you can, ask for this room. I saw a couple of rooms that seemed outdated and had rugs. Each... More

We booked this hotel last minute. Upon arrival we drove down to the beach and were greeted by staff who sets up chairs and umbrellas and towels for you. You do not need to bring your own chairs. The hotel is right on the beach which is very convenient. When we got into the room, the fridge was not cold... More

The location is perfect..right on the beach.. The room was a nice size. The problem I had was the bed.. I would have been better off sleeping on cardboard.The bed had no support whatsoever.Another problem I had was I felt like I was sleeping on sand.I was very disappointed especially paying 250.00a night on a Sunday 😞

At a Goldilocks distance from Montauk and right on the beach, this is a great place for families and couples alike. Take top floor rooms if possible (thin walls make for potentially noisy morning if you have the wrong upstairs neighbors) and take your own breakfast (the closest place to buy is Gurneys, but make the best of the kitchen).

We just returned from our trip to Montauk and really enjoyed our stay at Wavecrest. It is a charming, retro motel. Our room was recently updated and clean and the view is terrific. The beach was great. So was the heated indoor pool. It was a little chilly on the beach and it was nice to get in the warm... More

Came to pool with two 7 year old kids. Upon arrival at 12:00 on Wednesday 6.15 the pool was steaming hot tub hot. Jon the pool man says something was broken and being fixed(this was not true). So we waited until later to no avail. The next morning steam was coming off the surface of the water and way too... More

The wavecrest is a nice hotel with excellent Ocean views. A large enough indoor pool with clean accommodations. If your idea of a resort is only a beachchair and a book therm this is the place for you. No restaurants or gym or spa simply a bed, kitchenette and the ocean. The staff is friendly and unobtrusive the rooms vary... More

When we got there she ignored us even though we were the only ones in the office checking in.When she finally deceided to help us once again... More

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
