Our family of grandparents, parents, and children rented 4 rooms for a long weekend together. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean. Staff were wonderful. We were right on the water and loved the view. There is one caveat, however. We rented at this hotel specifically because they had an indoor pool so that we would have something to... More

My husband and I spent a Saturday night there recently and were fortunate enough to book an oceanfront room. The rooms seem as though they have been remodeled since the last time we were there and were very nicely done. You can not beat the location and watching the sunrise was a nice bonus. The room was clean and nicer... More

Been to wells area a bunch of time but never stayed at this resort right on the water. Room was smallish to be expected but was clean And up to date which was great. Having a slider right out to the ocean can't be beat and the room was clean and the staff were friendly and attentive. It's not cheap... More

Our family stayed at Forbes cottage. Pros- our family was able to get into house early(12:00) instead of 4:00. It was a beautiful house with a lot of room for the nine people we had staying there. They provided sheets and blankets as well as kitchen items to use. There was a washing machine, dryer, dish washer, island with bar... More

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

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
