We were operating ad hoc with respect to accommodations heading up the Maine coast when we decided we needed to find a place to stay. Luckily, these folks had a room left. It was likely one of their more humble, but clean and very acceptable....More

We stayed for 3 nights for a quick, first time family trip to Maine. The hotel is very dated but conveniently located on the water next to beach. Prices are steep for what you get but location is everything when it comes to oceanfront hotels....More

This was our first attempt to stay at Lafayette Beach Resort. We reserved an oceanfront room. As soon as we walked into the room, both my husband and I said it smelled of urine. We called the front desk to complain and they sent the...More

I think this is a good resort however the prices are too high. The mirror and the shelf underneath it were too high for me to use. Many of the oceanfront rooms were empty during my stay probably for the prices. The prices are high...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less
