We stayed for a weekend, joining a group of friends who do this every year. Very glad we went along. Room on renovated 2nd floor in Ledgeview (main) building. Very nicely done, blues & whites, very clean. Really appreciated the double sheeted comforters (we stay at the H brand for the "Fresh duvet covers".) Beautiful view overlooking Wells Beach. Pool...

For fourteen years now, we have been escaping to Lafayette's every February and April, and it is one of the highlights of my entire year. It is a perfectly relaxing place, with a view that can't be beat. The staff are excellent--friendly and helpful always. Our room is always clean and welcoming. We get up every morning to watch the...

My husband and I stayed on the second floor in the same hotel as the pool, It was very clean, and all up to date and modern. We could see a great view of the ocean from our room and it was breath taking. The beds were comfortable and the room was pretty spacious. The staff at the check in... More

Great ocean view... very clean rooms.Nice pool area.Restaurants close by.The only issue with this motel is always a two night minimum. With late check -in a two night minimum is not always feasible. .

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your concern regarding our policy in not accepting single Saturday night reservations in the off-season. As with most hotels, Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort does not allow single Saturdays and often have minimum stay during holiday weekends for advance reservations. I will be sure to let housekeeping know that their... More

Our room was warm and comfortable, the pool and hot tub (with waterfall) are beautifully maintained, the beds are great, and our view from our second floor balcony is million-dollar. At lowtide we had a panoramic view of the entire beach and at high tide it looked like our own infinite infinity pool. Sunrise over the ocean is not to... More

We decided to get away for a day after Christmas. In searching for hotels in this area, I came upon the Lafayette Oceanfront Resort. At only $65.00 a night for the off season, I could not pass it up (it's 300 give or take depending on the room in the summer-a little pricey for me) It is right on the... More

We stayed at Lafayette's last time we were in Maine and loved it so much we came again. We had a room on the bottom floor with a fireplace. It was great to be able to open up the sliding glass door and walk out on the beach whenever we wanted to. The staff is so friendly and there's always... More

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.

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
