We just spent a week at A Wave Inn, room 19, which is a Deluxe Studio Efficiency, good size. We chose it because of the good location, the pool, and it was less expensive than the oceanfront motels. After our first shower which was little more than a dribble, we knew there was no way we could put up with this for a whole week, considering we were paying $200+/day. We realized it was not the water pressure-it was the water-saving showerhead. The 2nd day I had to take a bath in order to rinse the shampoo from my hair. On the 3rd day we went to the Hardware store in town and bought a $5 s/head and replaced it using a wrench my husband had in the car. It was now 100%better. So if there is still a white plastic s/head in there you have us to thank.
Another annoying thing was the bed was so hard it was only slightly better than sleeping on the floor. We had a rough first night. If there was a Wal-mart in Montauk I would have purchased a cheap foam topper. We had a closet but no hangars. We had trouble with the cable going in and out the first couple days, but on the 3rd day when it went totally out we reported it and they had the Cable guy come the next day and fix it.
They don't tell you how to connect to the Wi-Fi so we asked the girl at the front desk and she said we have to be Cablevision subscribers and use our own Password! ??! Well, we're not, so she wrote something down to "try" but of course it didn't work. My husband played around and hooked onto somebody's unprotected Gateway, so we got internet but it was slow. You don't feel too confident after talking to the young-ish employees at the front desk.
On the plus side, the maid service is good, our room was painted and updated, large dresser, decent carpet, updated kitchen, full-size fridge, coffeemaker w/filters included, bring your own coffee. The bathroom had a mirror, it was fine with the exception of the shower. The pool area is nice. Any noise from other guests is blocked out by our constantly running room A/C, so we weren't bothered by any outside noise.
We liked being walking distance to Main St. and the beach. If the mattress was better, we'd go back there again. We had a nice vacation.
