Only 2 buildings are "on" the beach. The rest are "many" steps up and set back. Those have great views but not easy on the knees with luggage. Some rooms are updated nicely...most are not. Our crew had 8 rooms so I saw a lot of them. Decor is totally inconsistent. It's hit or miss. Some are carpeted, some have wood floors w/ area rugs. Some have full refrigerators/kitchens and some have tiny fridge, no oven, etc. Totally inconsistent so ask for what you want and be specific. Some were c. 1960's, others were more contemporary/modern. Mine was super clean but really scratchy, ugly bedspread and carpet. Some had books/games, others did not. Rooms were clean. Staff was nice. They don't let you keep chairs past 6pm which is awful if you like the beach at night w/ a fire. That said, chair guys are very nice. Nice area to BBQ and nice tables to eat outside, relax. Lounge cushions need a washing. There is NO wi-fi despite what their website says. Leave computer home! Don't bother. Cell phone service is very spotty. No cell service in the rooms at all - must stand outside and walk in circles until you get lucky! 5 minute drive to town - not bad at all. Locals said Wavecrest has nice new owners who are trying to update it but each unit owned individually so it's up to each owner to update their unit. If these rooms were all updated and they had decent cell/wi-fi service it would be the best place in Montauk. Spacious beach, not crowded at all. No restaurant on site though. That's ok. Overall, I'd go back - I know what to expect. I don't expect 4 star ANYWHERE in Montauk. If you know a true one, let me know!
