“Dated, friendly service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

This place is pretty rough around the edges in terms of condition. The service, however, was exceptional.

Pros: nice newer kitchenette area in the room. Good sized fridge. Extremely close to beach and town. Excellent customer service and laid back staff. Pretty good A/C unit in the room. Nice little pool area.

Cons: beds and linens are clearly very old--noisy and uncomfortable. Shower pressure and output was absurd. Bathing physically hurt. TV would randomly turn off while watching. Rooms do not block out external sounds at all.

Due to the comparatively low prices, this hotel appears to attract a young crowd, so there is inevitably some rowdiness after the close of the bars in the wee hours of the morning. Accordingly, I wouldn't recommend to light sleepers or families with young kids.

And unbelievably expensive. Filthy, stained carpet. Doors and windows that don't close or lock. Thread-bare sheets, greasy spreads. The two bedroom is not two bedrooms. There is a bed in the main room and a separate bedroom, so really only one bedroom.

Toilet broken, mold and mildew in shower, light over sink was dangerous because it plugged into the wall with a wire hanging loose. Is this code? I can't imagine that it is.

Long and short of it is that I took one look, told my wife and two young kids to get back in the car, and we left. I wouldnt let my dog stay there.

Generally I found Montauk disappointing relative to beaches in New England.

The staff was sweet and very helpful, room was very clean and large. .Great location right near the beach and a block from main street in town. I would definitely recommend a wave inn to anyone heading to montauk for a vacation.

It was great staying in the wave with my boyfriend, i would recommend any couple looking to get away to check this place out. The hotel staff was very friendly and the rooms were nice and neat, and the scenery was really nice, cant wait to come back soon.

My wife and I stayed here a couple of weekends ago. It was the best decision we ever made. The staff was so friendly, the accommodations were fantastic and it was the most relaxing place we stayed at in all of Long Island. There is no question about whether you should stay here.

Filthy carpet and bathroom, non-functional toilet, thread bear sheets, greasy bed spreads, just generally dirty. If you a 19 year-old frat boy, then maybe, but if you are a familly hoping for a nice beach vacation, then you will be desperately disappointed. Unbelievably expensive for such a dump.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
