Love the view of the ocean right outside the window. However, for the price of these rooms (and that's on the off season!). They need a serious cleaning and/or upgrade. We went because my husband likes this place. I'm more of a B&B girl. Next time, we will head up to Kennebunkport.

We stay each year and love this place. Excellent staff, clean comfortable rooms, and the ocean is at your door. We love to hear the waves each night. We have also stayed during ocean storms and that is fun too. It makes the beachcombing exciting the next morning.

Room is very comfortable, staff is extremely nice and helpful. And it's right on the beach, the perfect location. At low tide you can walk and explore the length of the beach and at high tide the waves come right up to the balcony - perfect!

Have visited Lafayette's more than 20 times (Spring & Fall). Rooms are always clean and the staff is always great to us. Love being right on the ocean - sunrises are beautiful and the sound of the waves are very relaxing.

Second visit and a great way to complete a fall tour of New England. We booked the Motor Inn this year, having stayed two years ago, and we're pleased to find the same high standards (even if the to is a little too big for the room!!) Great to overlook the ocean, sleep to the sound of the waves, and... More

The staff is very nice and helpful. Great location can not be any close to the beach. The views from the ocean-front rooms is amazing very worth the extra money. Big indoor pool and spa. We will be back for sure.

I have been going to this same resort for over 40 years now and have never had a bad room, the service was great and the location is near everything you want in a summer vacation. It is a bit pricey but when it's the only time you go it's worth every penny. I stayed at the Panorama Building which... More

This resort is an example of the location being the main(Maine) draw.The rooms are ok,clean, not real big. But in the ocean-front rooms you are right on top of the water at high tide. At low tide there is a real long beach perfect for play and strolls. Love it!

Seriously? The furnishings in our room were at least 25 years old. Threadbare. Worn. Stained. The air conditioner was moldy and obviously not serviced. These places need an update. Textiles this old are unhygienic. There's a reason styles change. The owners should go to an auction house or get a Home Depot corporate account and fix up this dump! The... More

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay. The room that you are describing does not represent Lafayette’s Oceanfront Resort. We are in the process of renovating all of our rooms, but there are some that still do have an older décor. There is someone on staff 24/7 for your convenience. If we had known the... More
