We just returned from a family weekend at Lafayette's in Wells. We stayed in the Ledgeview building, and while the location is great and the rooms are very clean, they are very outdated. We checked out some of the other rooms in the Ocean Motel building that have been renovated, and these seem like a much better value. Overall, we... More

Nice hotel right on the beach, a beautiful sandy beach. Also walking distance to everything, groceries, laundromat, restaurants, arcades, park with play structures for the kids. Lots of fun things to do!

We went for a family trip, 4 rooms total, and decided to stay at the Oxcart Motel due to lower price. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms on the 1st floor seemed to be recently updated. The 2nd floor, not so much. The rooms were kept clean, and we were always met with friendly staff. The pool was on... More

My fiancée and I decided to stay here. The staff members Toni, Josh & Audie were hospitable and accommodating. Every time we have stayed here, we are treated decent and the accommodations are clean and maintained. We will be back again soon.

If it wasn't for the amazing people answering the phones and the housekeeping staff, especially Becky and Maria this place wouldn't be worth it. Not to say the location isn't great but the some of the rooms (owned by Lafayette but called something else) leave a lot to be desired. They need to more closely monitor their guests and the... More

We booked one of the renovated, oceanfront rooms and it was perfect. The room, the views, the staff and the whole experience was better than we had expected. We see why people come back to this spot year after year. We will be back!

The staff kindly suggested I call at 7am on Saturday to reserve a single Saturday night as August being high season, they never sell just one night in advance, especially on a Saturday. I did just that and obtained a renovated double room with a real oceanview. $300/night was totally worth it. The room has just been renovated, the balcony... More

I have been vacationing at Lafayette in Wells for over 7 years. I have always had nice stays here. I will not stay anywhere else. I chose Oxcart Lane Rooms this year and I really liked the room. It had a nice view, big bathroom and a Keurig! The beds are comfortable and the room is very clean. The rooms... More

Happy to recommend this place. Have been there a few times before and found it great each time. Convenient location right on the beach. Bed was comfortable and room well kept. The minifridge was a nice addition.

It may not have been on the ocean front, but we enjoyed the marsh view just as much. The price value was very good. We found the room clean and well serviced. The K-cup machine was a very nice touch. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We will most definitely stay there again; very soon.

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
