For the fourth year now we stayed at our favorite seaside resort, Wavecrest Oceanfront. We stayed in the same corner room in the Overlook building unit 101 which continues to get nicer each year. The staff was very courteous and we had another great experience. Wavecrest added a food and beverage trailer service this year by the beach which was... 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

We stayed at this hotel before and had good experiences. My family needed a one bedroom and this time we stayed in suite #153. It was clean with new furniture, gorgeous Italian tile and no stairs to the ocean. We had one rainy day but it was still great to swim in the heated pool. I stayed years ago and... More

Small room but it has the necessities. Hotel beach is great, nice and relaxing away from the downtown beaches. Maid service is good, the room was were kept clean. The Wifi is horrific if your need to be connected. The food truck is key to surviving a long day at the beach.

We just got back from the Wavecrest-it was our first time at this resort and have been coming to Montauk for years staying at many other hotels. I didn't expect much from the hotel in looking at the pictures but overall it was better than I thought. With that said, it wasn't perfect. We arrived and our room wasn't ready.... More

My husband and I arrived on Thursday 7/15/16. First time ever in Montauk or a beach resort. We were greeted at the front desk by a blond woman (don’t remember her name) who lives part time in Florida. She was cheerful, helpful and informative. She was the only one at the front office who (in my opinion) knew how to... More

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 I saw a couple of rooms that seemed outdated and had rugs.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).
