My boyfriend and I just got home today from a 5 night stay at Lafayette. It was awesome. We had a partial ocean view room and we could see the ocean from our window. The staff was courteous and helpful, there was maid service every day if we wanted and we could get free coffee from the restaurant next door... More

The location was great, right by the ocean. The staff was friendly and our room was ready on time. We arrived a bit early, check in time is at 3:00, but we were able to check in, change and use the pool/hot tub. Our room 259 was updated and has a private balcony with an ocean view. It was exactly... More

The location of the motel was great with oceanfront views. The staff were very helpful. This is a local motel not a hotel chain so expect more family oriented. The only downside were the beds, very soft and uncomfortable.

Thank you for taking time to review our property. We are happy you enjoyed your stay here, but do apologize that the beds were too soft for your comfort. We periodically change them out, but mattresses are very subjective seeing as everyone prefers a different firmness. We do look forward to hosting you again in the near future! More

Setting and location are great but room accommodations are poor! Ac didn't work, bedding was poor and overall 2 star accommodations! If you want a comfortable bed...this isn't the place! I totally appreciate the setting however if you die of the heat all night and can't walk in the morning... What good is it!

We upgraded our room to a suite which included a small bedroom with full size mattress and a trundle bed, as well as the main bedroom with jacuzzi tub, fireplace, massage chair and plenty of space. Also, not to be forgotten, Wifi included!!!! As should be the case at every stay regardless of price. The people at the front desk... More

You can't much closer to the beach! Nice listening to the waves and see the sunrise first thing in the morning. Great beach for walking on. Lots of people finding all kinds of things to do. We even watched kids fly kites with their parents. Great family area to be in.

The price almost made us change our mind but once there, every bit worth it. Rooms very clean and they have even the little things - like a clothes line in the bathroom to dry your bathing suits. Even with a parking lot between us and the ocean, the sound of the waves was very soothing.

My husband and I stayed here for the 1st time and we can't wait to go back! Our room was wonderful..comfy, clean and overlooking the ocean! The sounds of the waves were amazing! We watched the tides change from low to high and it was mesmerizing!! So peaceful. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We love this place!!
