We were on the third floor of the Ledgeview Inn 8 a couple week ago. We were looking for a place to get away with a view of the ocean and were very satisfied. Enjoyed the heated indoor pool and hot tub and look forward to doing it again in the winter months. Pricing was very reasonable. Room was attractive... More

Had a small room with a balcony with an ocean view. Room was pretty clean. Hallways needed a good vacuuming. Considering the room was a corner unit, it was exceptionally quiet. Bed was very comfortable.

My wife and I have stayed at the Lafayette several times and at during various seasons. It's always proved to be a great experience. One of our favorite rooms is in the Panorama room 209.

The room was very clean. It wasn't fancy, but it wasn't tacky either. Some updates have been done. We had an oceanfront room on the second floor and it was FANTASTIC!! The view was beautiful, you could hear the waves all night. It was perfect! But I must emphasize how clean the room was!!

I've stayed here several times, always in a Deluxe Ocean-front room. If you're looking for the opulence of The Ritz, you won't find it here. But if you're looking for a place to fall asleep listening to the crashing of ocean waves, step off your patio directly onto the beach, and be surrounded by some of the best shopping, dining...

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
