Our family has been staying here since I was a child and I am continuing the family tradition with my granddaughter! The oceanfront rooms are truly oceanfront - listening to the waves day and night, and watching the amazing sunrise are just a couple of reasons I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The staff is very friendly and helpful,... More

We stayed here in April (off season) which was nice because the weather was fairly warm, but it was not crowded at all. It was nice having the entire beach to ourselves to walk up and down. There were only a few other guests at the hotel too, so we had the pool to ourselves and the gym. Our room... More

We usually stay somewhere else when coming up to Maine but we decided to switch it up a bit this time--and we're glad we did! We got a room with a fireplace and an amazing ocean view for $109 a night. It's wonderful to fall asleep and wake up to the sound if the ocean. We aren't very far from... More

We have been coming here for years and we stay as a group of friends on the off-season. We like the quiet times when it is a little less expensive. The staff are friendly and courteous and very helpful. The oceanfront rooms have a gorgeous view and the rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable and clean. The... More

We have stayed at Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort many times over the past 20 years and have never been disappointed. Staff is very friendly and helpful and often goes above and beyond in their efforts. Rooms have always been clean and well furnished. Each year I am seeing updating and new changes. I hope to spend many more vacations and weekend... More

We have been traveling to Wells, Maine and Lafayette's for nine years. We usually go either in April or September, but we have stayed in July. We stay in an oceanfront room in April and September and stay in the Oxcart Inn in July. Of course we love the oceanfront rooms, but the Oxcart is very comfortable and the rooms... More

6 years in a row for our winter getaway. Lafayette is always clean and the staff is always hospitable. Rates are very reasonable and the view cannot be beaten. I highly recommend this hotel as we will be back again next year.

Room 131 is perfect! Clean, tempurpedic king bed, in room two person jacuzzi, electric fireplace and ocean view. At first my fiance and I were worried since the motel check in was very dated. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely would return to this in the winter for a weekend getaway.

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
