The ocean view and access to the beautiful sandy beach can't be beat. The room itself is a bit dated, but it was clean with reasonably comfy beds, a decent sized fridge and standard amenities (get the free coffee from Forbes next door rather than bothering with the in room machine). The kids loved the direct access to the beach... More

I've been coming here with my inlaws every summer for the past eight years. The location is absolutely unbeatable. There's nothing like waking up right on the ocean and being able to walk down a few stairs to the beach. While the rooms are pretty outdated they are always super clean. It's definitely the place to go if you are... More

Based on the description of the room that you stayed in, you were likely in our Deluxe building across from the main office. We do have upgraded oceanfront rooms that have been renovated and updated, but the Deluxe still offers the same convenience of being right on the beach. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, and as always,... More

I stayed at Lafayette as an alternative in Wells to the hotel I usually stay in. I was in the "economy" section since I was only looking for a basic room for a family vacation. The staff was very nice but the room was less than good. The narrow stairs and hallways in this building were not inviting. The room... More

Clean older style motel right on the beach in Wells. Not cheap but you cannot beat being able to walk out the door and get on the beach. Caution about the tides though - at high tide the beach basically vanishes so you need to keep that in mind and plan your schedule accordingly.

This hotel is a good, solid choice if you want to be right on the ocean with easy access to the beach - it eliminates the terrible hassle of parking, waiting for shuttles, or a very long walk. We were willing to pay a premium for that convenience while traveling with our kids. Unfortunately, you really do have to pay... More

Love the ocean front rooms in buildings #5 and #8...Private deck to sit and enjoy the ocean..Floodlight in the evening highlights the water. Sit, read, relax to sounds of the ocean waves. Only leave because we have to eat....

Relaxing stay at this clean and well-equipped resort. Paid extra for a newly remodeled, oceanfront room with a balcony. Also had a refrigerator, coffeemaker, lush cotton robes. Balcony was very small and not private, but there is a comfortable sitting area in front of the sliding door and that's a great option. New linens, towels, and a memory foam mattress... More

We stayed in late June. Lafayette's is a very relaxing, quiet resort, right on the ocean. Rooms were up to date, large and very clean. Overall, I highly recommend it. Wells is very quiet - not overrun by tourists.

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
