Price $65 a night with a kitchenette- sweet! One blockaway from quieter beach- sweet!! Easy parking, simple layout, felt safe- even better. Now the rooms do need upgrading, but then prices go up- i will say that I did not do much cooking- if I were to, I would definately buy a kitchen cleaner and scrub away to my preferred... More

This was probably a decent place when in 1962 everyone piled into the station wagon to go to Florida. I suspect not much has changed since then. The room was beyond well-worn. I unfortunately dropped something that fell under the bed and it was disgusting how filthy it was under there. Didn't feel safe walking on the carpet without shoes.... More

The only good part about this hotel was the distance to the beach. This motel was absolutely HORRIBLE! First and foremost there were BED BUGS!!! I still have bites from 2 days ago, they have not gone down. Multiple people were complaining about them and the staff did not even care. They were friendly however, they had a non-nonchalant attitude... More

If you want an inexpensive and quiet place to crash after a day of sightseeing then this is your place. The hotel and its rooms were very clean, but have definitely seen better days. The maid came every afternoon to clean my room and always asked if I needed anything. There was a nice pool that was actually big enough... More

My girlfriend and I checked in for a night. At 12:00 we awoke to loud shouting coming from the apartment building next door, owned by the same owners I think. Some domestic dispute, woman fighting with three other males outside. Very loud. Not to worry, she was alive because they were going at it again at 2 am. Again, she... More

My family and I wanted to stay near the beach without paying 200 to 300 dollars a night. We found Lafayette and were very Pleased with the staff and cleanliness. We were happy to have a guest laundry on site. Would definitely stay again.
