My best friend and I took a 4 hour drive to get out of Upstate NY, staying at the Lafayette, after finding it online. Found the room to be a little outdated, but ocean front, and comfortable. We labeled it 'grandmas house', somewhere we liked being and had everything we needed. We ended up taking my kids back for a couple days, and had a blast. It was a rainy day, and the pool was alot of fun for all of us. In September, we went back for a weekend, and took a couple more friends with us. This trip, my room was rented out prior to my arrival, much to my dismay. This was quickly rectified by a very nice desk clerk. I appreciated that, and have made plans to go back in June 2013 for my 1st trip of the summer.
