They have several different buildings on this property. We stayed in the Ledgeview I think on the first floor. The carpet is worn but didn't make my feet dirty so it must be clean. The people at the front desk was very kind and helpful. There is a lot of noise from the other people but it didn't bother me... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for the first time this past July. We were very disappointed in our vacation. They charged an additional $30/night for my daughter! When we first got there,we were early and the staff allowed us to check in early stating there was no one staying in the room the night before. We thought this... More

My husband & I stayed here for the first time last weekend, room 134, and really enjoyed our stay. It's an older resort but very clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, right on Wells Beach with Forbes restaurant next door and Billy's Chowder House about a half mile away. There... More

I've stayed at the Lafayette several times and overall, it's a great stay. However, despite the mostly nice experiences offered to guest(s) of this hotel, there were a few minor disappointments on my last stay. The cost of the hotel is pricey per night and while you can't beat the close proximity to the ocean, the hotel is a bit... More

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. The rooms in the Original Building where you stayed are considered our economy rooms, which are smaller sized rooms with one bed. We are constantly renovating and purchasing new amenities, bedding, drapes, and carpeting for the rooms each year. We have in fact already gone away from the bedspreads in... More

The accommodations are great. You open your door and you would be looking at the Atlantic Ocean. Everything was clean and terrific. People who work are all pleasant. My family have been coming here for 4 years.

My husband and I stayed in the Panorama Building this past week. We thought the room and the facilities were clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the view from our second floor balcony. The pool and hot tub were also well maintained. The room was ready on-time, the staff was friendly and helpful and the location is too die for.... More

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.

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
