“Awesome Beach.... Nice Accomodations!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

I just returned from 3 nights at the Wavecrest Resort in Montauk. This is our 4th summer returning to the Wavecrest. We really like the Wavecrest Resort. It is not super fancy, but it is very clean,updated and comfortable. We stay in the Beach Dune units. The beds were very comfortable, clean wtih new bed linens and comforters. It also had a small kitchenette with a refigerator, stove and microwave. The room has a nice size deck which directly overlooks the ocean. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The best part of this resort is the beach. It is such a beautiful and peaceful beach. The resort has complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas which they drive right down to the beach for you. If you are looking to relax with on a beautiful beach, with nice accomodations this is the place for you!

Was reluctant to pay the price of this dilapidated hotel, but wanted one more night on the island. Unfortunately they had one room left. This hotel is in desperate need of updating. The view is certainly great, but the structure needs TLC. The people staying beneath us were drunk and singing at the top of their lungs until the cops were called and stopped them at 11:30 p.m. At 6:30 a.m. the people above us let their 3 toddlers run and stomp on the floor from 6:30 a.m. until we finally checked out at 10:15 a.m. When we asked them to please be considerate, they stated "they weren't doing anything but eating their breakfast." All-in all, you'd be better off elsewhere. My wallet is over $300 lighter and it was a MISERABLE night! You'd be better served in Southampton!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay there!

Location of this resort is optimal and views are lovely. Complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas are provided and the staff that brings them to the beach is helpful and friendly.
Rooms vary greatly although the cost is the same so you can be lucky (with a new updated room) or unlucky as I was with stain and uneven bulge in the carpet in my unit.
There was only one front desk person who understood the concept of customer service. Debra was helpful, courteous and kind. I experienced quite the opposite upon checking in when 2 individuals were on the phone, looked up to see me but did not acknowledge my presence (or others who subsequently came in during my wait at the desk of 3-4 minutes). A visitor to our resort (who was staying elsewhere) also encountered similar rude behavior when asking for a one day pass for his windshield. Upon entering the office he stated, "Hello, how are you ladies doing this morning". He was met with a rude "what" in response rather than “How, can I help you?" or "We're fine, what can we do for you?" The other staff (poolside, lounge and umbrella as well as cleaning) was quite courteous and helpful.
The message from the 2 individuals I dealt with was that the customer is lucky to be there and they could care less whether you did or not. I am uncertain if these individuals own the resort which is why they behave this way but shame on me for giving them my money.

We stayed in the Overlook. It was beautifully decorated, updated, clean and equipped with kitchen essentials. The view is spectacular! The deck outside our room had lounge chairs, as well as sitting chairs which was nice. The staff at the beach put up umbrellas and chairs and provided towels. The office staff was friendly and provided us toiletries we did not pack. We needed to take our car to the town. It is not within walking distance. We will certainly be back with family. Great stay!!!!!

This was our first stay at the Wavecrest Resort and we were very impressed!! The rooms at the Waters Edge were extremely clean, the daily maid service was top notch!! The unobstructed views of the ocean, the grilling and sunbathing decks were perfectly situated right outside our room. The ladies at the check-in desk were extremely friendly and accommodating. The late check-out was a welcome addition to our stay. We will definitely be back. If I had to make one complaint it would be that the mattress and the television could use some serious updating, other than that, the room was clean and so spacious with all the amenities for a great stay!!!
