We stayed in this hotel several times and always had quite positive views. We prefer to stay in rooms that face the ocean and you can feel the ocean mist right on your balcony. Rooms are simple, but clean. The hotel has indoor pool. There are many places to eat, including one that is open only in summer that is...

Excellent customer service. My car had a flat tire yesterday morning. Before I could even go to the front desk to ask for help they had called me to say that someone had reported my flat tire and the maintenance person was on their way with an air compressor to fill it up for me. Everyone from the front desk...

if we had been any closer to the water, we would have been WET. Honestly we also were - the high tide was supper high and the ocean was ANGRY. It was a thrill to see before, during and after - huge rocks moved about like pebbles.

We are happy to hear you were able to enjoy the ocean waves. You are right, sometimes it can get intense. You may even get sprayed if you're too close to the sea wall at high tide! We hope you are able to make it back to Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort in the future so you can further enjoy the magnificence...

My wife and I are long time patrons of the Lafayette's . The location affords visitors the opportunity to visit any one of many attractions in the area, including the Kittery Outlets just minutes away. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff has always been very accommodating. If swimming in the ocean isn't your thing, the heated pool and...

This was our third time staying here. The beds are super comfortable and we love the location, but if I owned this hotel whoever is in charge of housekeeping would be fired on the spot. We had to switch rooms this trip and the second room was just as bad. It was the same way our last two stays. They...

We stayed at the Lafayette for one night and had a great time with our two young children. We stayed on the second floor in a room with two beds and a pullout couch.

Lafeyette's Oceanfront Resort is an older, simply-designed resort with a magnificent ocean frontage on Wells Beach. I spent a weekend there in early December, 2016, and am utterly charmed by it. The rooms are unprepossessing, but functional, including a microwave and fridge. Above all, the rooms were clean and fresh-smelling. I can recommend the second-floor oceanfront rooms; they give a...

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
