We love to stay at Lafayette's during the off-season for a dose of ocean, surf, seafood, and soul-refreshing quiet. Regardless of the weather, we always feel better going to sleep listening to the surf. This April we happened to be there when weather was warmer than usual so we even got to enjoy coffee on our balcony. (We were excited... More

My mom and I had the chance to get away and spend some time in room #208 directly on the ocean. Anytime I book a room at the Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort, this is the room I request. Why you ask, well the room is directly on the oceanfront, you walk out your door and the elevator is near the room.... More

We decided to stay the night in Maine, the Comfort Inn was booked and the front desk recommended this hotel. The front desk was open at 10:30 PM and they were very nice. The room was right on the ocean, went to sleep listening to the waves. Woke up to the sun rising over the ocean, almost like Key West.... More

For over forty years, always in July, Christmas shopping in November/December and off season February as well as May or June before peak tourist season, this is my place to renew my soul. The beauty and power of the ocean will be enjoyed each and every day of the year here on Wells Beach. The staff treat you as family... More

Old fashioned odd assortment of buildings, each different. The lowest rate rooms are quite small but ours was big with view of a not very interesting beach. Best thing was inexpensive but very good breakfast at Forbes Restaurant in this same parking lot. We were there for a week but left early when they increased rate by $40 a night... More

Thank you for your review. It appears that you stayed in our Motor Inn West building during your stay. These are some of our larger rooms and a lot of people appreciate the remodeled bathrooms and new carpeting. We have a range in rates depending on the room type and location. The Motor Inn West does have an older décor,... More

Wanted to share our favorite Maine destination with my sister and brother-in-law, who never visited area before. Chose motor lodge rooms with ocean views (albeit between buildings). The charm of the paneling and dated furniture was overshadowed by the brand new showers with the fabulous pressure and hot water; the uncrowded clean pool and jacuzzi, the punch and cookies offered...

We've been to Lafayette on Easter weekend, 2015. We had a problem with our room, and the staff fixed it in no time. In fact, they had to move us to another room, more expensive, but they charged us NO extra. We had a wonderful weekend, thanks to Lafayette's Oceanfront and its dedicated employees. We'll go back for sure !

We have stayed her numerous times. Outstanding staff, great location, and for the price, you can't go wrong. It's not a 5 star hotel but the rooms are clean and comfortable. You have access to the beach, indoor pool, and hot tub. A quick ride to the grocery store restaurants etc. Your budget family getaway is awaiting right here!

Excellent place to stay! Right on Wells Beach, my room was clean, quiet, and had all the amenities one needs to travel. That night; the full moon rose up out of the ocean, you can't buy that kind of natural beauty! Billy's chowder house right down Mile road, good eats & drinks!
