We have been coming to the Wavecrest for many years now. We absolutely love it! Can't beat the beach and the views, we love that the beach chairs and umbrellas are brought right to us! The Wavecrest is a coop, so the rooms are individually owned and kept up by each owner. Make sure to ask for a newly renovated... More

I have been coming to Montauk all of my life. My second favorite place in the world my first Italy. Wave Crest has become so run down and sloppy...it is hard to believe how deteriorated the facility is. The staff appears disinterested and/or angry. No real amenities. All charm is lost. Never again my heart is heavy . This used... More

The rooms are efficientcies, with kitchenettes. Each one seems a little different, ours had a queen and double bed, table for two, dresser, kitchenette with 4 burner stove... More

Wavecrest is our new favorite place. We did not know what to expect after reading various TripAdvisor reviews. We took the advice of some of the reviewers and went in with low expectations. We also listened to one person had wrote about asking for an updated room. (Very good idea because some of the rooms are not as nice). This... More

The view from the watersedge room was outstanding. The room had a sofa bed and a queen bed that were extremely comfortable and I had a great nights sleep. The room has a regular sized and smaller compact refrigerator and a small kitchenette with a handy microwave and coffee maker. These all came in handy for our stay. The room... More

We've been coming here for years as a couple or family get away. Rooms have been updated with most including balcony facing ocean. Includes a indoor pool for rainy days or just a change of pace . On ocean with lovely beach and includes chairs and umbrellas.

Spent a week in July with my family. We had three rooms for 7 adults and 5 grandkids. Rooms were clean, spacious and accommodating. We have been coming to Wavecrest for several years and each year it seems to get better. Besides the great beach we enjoyed the heated pool and patio, the barbeque and, new this year, the food...

We booked late so we were told there was only one room left with a minimum three night stay. We were told it was small but nice. The price was about $325 a night. The room was in need of repair. The kitchenette had chipped cabinets. The rug was old. It was not one of the refurbished rooms that they... More

The photo on Trip Advisor does not do this place justice. We were there for 6 nights recently, and had a lovely, relaxing time. Make sure you get a room with an ocean view (most have), it will make all the difference. The beach is lovely and the service was great - the staff were very nice and accommodating. We... More
