We recently returned from a four day stay at Lafayette's in Wells, Maine. We stayed in the Oxcart Lane section. The rooms in this section are not updated, but are always clean and well equipped. The updated bathroom is nice, but should have a ceiling fan installed for moisture issues. I have one complaint and one other suggestion. The beds... More

Great little resort with access to the beach. However, the balcony rooms need to fix the railing; two rows of pipe railing is not safe for kids of any age. Fix that before something bad happens. Otherwise, for the value not too bad.

I would NEVER come here again! 1. We were promised an oceanfront room, showed up and got a parking lot view room. They did nothing about this besides to say, "we would never have promised you that." 2. Went to go to bed the first night and our bed was covered in sand. We asked them to change the sheets... More

I am so sorry that you are disappointed in your room. We have a variety of room types here with many different prices. Some of our rooms are on the water and others are in the back without a view. I checked with the front desk and you were offered a different room but you choose not to change. I... More

The room is nice and comes with a reasonable number of amenities. Kudos to Maria from housekeeping for an excellent job. This is not a five star resort. It's a well run beachside hotel and you're paying for the easy access to the beach and the sound of the waves right outside. We've been coming here for years and have... More

Thank you for choosing to stay at Lafayette’s Oceanfront Resort. We do appreciate your continued patronage throughout the years. Our nine buildings offer you a wide range of options including the oceanfront, to economy-sized room in the back. In our off-season our rates are much lower and the experience is the same. We look forward to hosting you in the... More

I can not understand how this resort is not the #1 in Wells. This has been a wonderful experience all around. It started with calling for reservations. The woman I spoke with was so kind and suggested the perfect room for my family. We had room 258 in the Ledgeview building. Balcony overlooking the ocean. I sat for hours enjoying... More

I stayed here from June 13th to June 15th and found the location of the resort to be great (right on the beach!). The pool area and hot tub were nice. However, I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone or ever stay here again. The people working here (possibly the owners too) were very rude. It seemed difficult for them... More

Just spent four day over Memorial Day weekend. Can let older children play on beach and watch from balcony. Peaceful, staff friendly, housekeeping could have been better - towels not replenished adequately and very important to me, coffee and cups not replenished daily. Plan to go again - very few places where you can stay right on beach in Maine.

Thank you for your review of our property. I apologize that the towels were not replenished adequately. In our rooms we leave one towel per person, however extras can be requested from the housekeeper or the front desk staff. If the towels are hung, then they will not be changed in accordance to our “green” policy. The coffee cups should... More

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
