We stayed at the Lafayette in August. Reserved for 3 nights. Upon check in late in the evening, decided to give it the night after discovering it was not a resort warranting a $300.00 per night rate. Charged $30.00 extra per night for our 17 year old child. The bathroom had used soap in the corner on top of the...

I was expecting your typical Maine motel that seemed to be stuck in the 60's. But I was pleasantly surprised. Instead, the room was tastefully updated with a large flat screen TV, large king size bed with soft mattress, microwave, fridge, etc. Even the bathroom had been updated. But the best part was the view. Room 217 right on the...

We got a gift certificate to stay here one night. The room was clean and nice. It had a balcony. If we had neighbors, we didn't hear them at all. The pool and jacuzzi were nice. They have lifts for anyone who needs help getting in and out of the pool and jacuzzi. The staff was nice and helpful as...

We stayed here for 3 nights in early August and thought it was wonderful. The views from the oceanfront rooms are spectacular and the rooms are immaculate. It is not bargain priced but completely worth the price.

Do not let the name of Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort fool you; it is a motel. But it is on the beach (or a couple of buildings are one block off), it does have a small indoor pool, a little fast-food like restaurant, shops, an arcade for the children, and by the marsh view building, there is the Rollover Café which...

We stayed for a long weekend in the Oxcart building of Lafayettes. It was our first time in Wells. We had a good experience. Steps to the beach - just what we were looking for.

The room was clean and the staff was very friendly upon check-in. The main thing was that our room was directly in front of the ocean and when the window was opened, you could hear the waves. We traveled off-season, so it was a better price, (still not great for off-season). Drawback was there is only one handicap parking spot...

The ocean view and access to the beautiful sandy beach can't be beat. The room itself is a bit dated, but it was clean with reasonably comfy beds, a decent sized fridge and standard amenities (get the free coffee from Forbes next door rather than bothering with the in room machine). The kids loved the direct access to the beach...

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
