My wife and I took a quick anniversary getaway to Montauk the week before Memorial Weekend. We wanted to stay at the beach but didn't want to spend a lot of money doing so. We came upon the Wavecrest and decided to book a room in the beach dunes building. This building is right at the edge of the beach. The beach is amazingly clean, quiet and private. Wavecrest offers chairs and towels. The towels are very small so bring your own if you want to lay down on the beach comfortably and the chairs get stowed back at 5pm so keep that in mind.
As for the room, it was spacious with microwave, refrigerator, gas and even utensils. The coffee maker was a bit old and dirty. The decor is very soothing and and the room was very clean. The beds are semi-comfortable. I would highly recommend you ask for an updated room and some rooms are really old. If the beach dune rooms are out of your budget, I recommend you stay in the Overlook building which has nice views of endless beach and updated rooms.
Overall, this was a great deal and almost $700 cheaper than to stay at Gurney's next door. Downtown Montauk is about 10 minutes via car and Montauk Light house about 20 minutes.
Bottomline...if you want to stay at the beach and dont care for a lot of luxuries like having a restaurant on site then this is the place for you!
