I've never been disappointed Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort. But request building #5 or the one next to it to be right on the ocean. Maine building overlooks parking lot with view of ocean but not on beachfront. Stay includes use of hotel pool and hot tub which is really great ! So relaxing in the evening. And rooms include a microwave... More

We stay here several times a year, but usually in the main facility with the pool. In September, we opted to stay in the building that sits right on the beach. The only room left, as this was last minute, was the only one without a deck on the Oceanside. Instead we had a large picture window which was actually... More

My daughter, granddaughter and I were pleasantly surprised by our upgraded room and the wonderful service we received on this girls shopping trip to Maine. Although we have stayed with this resort many times in the past, we really enjoyed it this time!

We wanted to be at the ocean one more time before winter and chose the Lafayette because of its location. The desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. We had only booked 1 nite, but asked about possibly staying 2 and was told they could hold it until 10 am the next day. More than fair. The housekeeper was also... More

Thank you for choosing to stay at Lafayette’s Oceanfront Resort. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us on the second floor of the Original Building. Our off-season rates in all of our buildings are very reasonable. More often than not Lafaytte’s Oceanfront Resort is less expensive than other hotels with little, to no view of the ocean.... More

We have stayed here many times. Our favorite rooms are in the Wells Beach Motor Inn. They have been updated in style (not ALL rooms have, so make sure to check out the room photos on their website). The Ocean Views are awesome and right on the beach. Centrally located in Wells. We always stay at the end of the... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay at Lafayette. The view was spectacular--right over the beach and with high tide we were right over the ocean! The staff is friendly and helpful. The room is clean and adequate. We go off season and have the beach practically to ourselves. It's near enough to Kinnebunkport for a shopping trip and... More

We stayed one night in one of the ocean front rooms on the beach. We sat on the balcony and watch the moon rise on the horizon. First time to see the moon like this. When the tide came in it there was no more beach. We enjoyed listened to the waves crash and sitting in front of the fire... More

My husband, two children ages 8 and 10, and I stayed at the Motor Inn West for Columbus Day Weekend. The only reason I gave a 4 and not a 5 is because the room is a little dated and the bathroom is very small. We didn't mind too much though because we were there to relax and enjoy the... More

I had the pleasure of staying here this past weekend. What a great place. We had an oceanfront room on the 2nd floor. You could feel the mist from the ocean at high tide right from the balcony. The room was clean and newly remodeled. Could not have asked for a more beautiful view. So relaxing. Can't wait to go... More

I've stayed here many times over the years, always off season for a weekend when our summer home one beach over wasn't opened up. The rooms are always clean but they are small and dated with a 50's highway motel feel. We have always had good experiences with the staff who are friendly and helpful but in an honest rural...
