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. I believe it's the only unit that has a gas fireplace. It couldn't make for a more romantic evening on a spring or fall evening...

The room had been upgraded....Big Plus.....Robes to wear going to and from the ocean front or pool area were provided. Coffee in room provided by coffee maker. However, because of the busy weekend we had to change rooms the next...

The room was very clean. It wasn't fancy, but it wasn't tacky either. Some updates have been done. We had an oceanfront room on the second floor and it was FANTASTIC!! The view was beautiful, you could hear the waves all night. It was perfect! But I must emphasize how clean the room was!!

I've stayed here several times, always in a Deluxe Ocean-front room. If you're looking for the opulence of The Ritz, you won't find it here. But if you're looking for a place to fall asleep listening to the crashing of ocean waves, step off your patio directly onto the beach, and be surrounded by some of the best shopping, dining...

Unfortunately only rooms available were in the Lodge, the building housing the office. Have stayed at Lafayette Resort many times. The remodeled oceanfront rooms with updated beds and furniture that we stayed in in our most recent previous stays were fantastic.

With the resort's long history, there is certainly still some nostalgia in place here on property. With now nine different hotel buildings that make up Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort, we've been chipping away at renovations and upgrades to the different parts of the property when we can. Just this last offseason we were able to renovate the third floor of the...

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
