Travelers' Choice
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.

East Hampton, Connecticut608 contributions109 helpful votes
... were the two reasons we chose this property. We perused the website with building locations, descriptions and room numbers before we called to reserve a room. We had several dates in mind and hit the jackpot! NB: they do not take online reservations. The room we selected was on the 2nd floor, oceanfront, and recently renovated with a lovely gas fireplace.It did take some work to pick out the room which we wanted instead of hoping for the best and getting the opposite. The early check in time was 2 pm. In summary : the view, the ajoining parking lot, the elevator, the pool and the cleanliness contributed to our very enjoyable short stay. We have already booked our room for a return trip. Once you go, you'll know....

We had a wonderful night away. The room was perfect. Very clean and great amenities! We ate lunch at the restaurant and the burgers were fantastic! Can’t wait to go back. Nothing better than waking up to a beautiful sunrise!

We stay here a few times a year and the staff are always wonderful and the views can be beat. The rooms have everything you need, Keurig with Green Mtn cups, microwave, fridge, Bath and Body works products. This time we stayed in room 211 which was awesome. Love the fact that they do not allow pets. Only negative (and this is a personal preference) is the beds are a little too soft for us.

This was our first time staying here and we were not disappointed. We always stayed at the Bellevue but after 30 years of staying there we were treated very poorly last year and will never go there again. We booked Wells Beach House and loved it. Very clean and what a joy to open the door and be on the ocean. Office staff was very kind and friendly and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you for a great time.

Nice location overlooking the beach, they have several room options to fit anyone's needs. Rooms are super clean, beds are comfy, pool's nice and the waterfall hot tub is amazing. 2 little shops in the area to grab whatever souvenirs you need/want. We spent hours walking the beach looking for pebbles. ♡
