Lafeyette's Oceanfront Resort is an older, simply-designed resort with a magnificent ocean frontage on Wells Beach. I spent a weekend there in early December, 2016, and am utterly charmed by it. The rooms are unprepossessing, but functional, including a microwave and fridge. Above all, the rooms were clean and fresh-smelling. I can recommend the second-floor oceanfront rooms; they give a...

Quiet night watching the tides come in, maybe a walk on the beach during low tide, a swim in the pool, a soak in the hot tub, a clean ocean front room, newly renovated in beautiful hues of blue, an anniversary card from the staff ready to open on your arrival? How about watching the snow fall and the waves...

Location, location, location. We stayed on the third floor in an ocean view room and couldn't have asked for a better location. The rooms have been beautifully redone and meticulously maintained (kudos to housekeeping!). It was so nice to sleep with the window open and hear the roar of the ocean in a wonderfully comfortable bed. I brought my own...

We were on the third floor of the Ledgeview Inn 8 a couple week ago. We were looking for a place to get away with a view of the ocean and were very satisfied. Enjoyed the heated indoor pool and hot tub and look forward to doing it again in the winter months. Pricing was very reasonable. Room was attractive...

Had a small room with a balcony with an ocean view. Room was pretty clean. Hallways needed a good vacuuming. Considering the room was a corner unit, it was exceptionally quiet. Bed was very comfortable.

My wife and I have stayed at the Lafayette several times and at during various seasons. It's always proved to be a great experience. One of our favorite rooms is in the Panorama room 209.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort is directly on Wells Beach, one of the largest sandy beaches in Maine. We have a complex of nine different buildings, five of which sit right on the beach. Many of our rooms have private balconies with panoramic views of the ocean. We are open year round so you do not need to miss any season. Although summer is certainly the most popular season in Maine, the beauty of this coastal area is enchanting throughout the year. Wells Beach is fun for families. Walk from your room onto the sand to swim, build sand castles, stroll in the surf looking for shells and rocks or just relax and enjoy the feel of the sun on your face while you enjoy the view. The indoor pool and the hot tub with a waterfall are very relaxing after a hot day in the sun. The playground and the arcade will entertain the children after the beach. ... more   less
