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...

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....

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...

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 I saw a couple of rooms that seemed outdated and had rugs.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

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...

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...

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...
