Wells is expensive in the summer. Anywhere across the marsh on Post Road, you either have to drive (and pay parking) or take the trolley to the beach...or stay here. This is a complex of various motels on Mile Rd.
Me and my sister opted for the Oxcart Lane Inn facing the march at 170$ a night...no view of the beach, but you can actually walk there in 5 minutes. The rooms are clean but very old school, large, 2 queen beds, comfie, free wifi, a huge bathroom with storage space, some chairs in front of the room facing the parking, fridge, AC, all decent. Old CRT TV had many channels but had an old up-down remote which was a pain. Free coffee in room and at Forbes. Prices for food were quite good, and will try it next time we come).
The pool and jacuzzi are indoor, which is good if its raining or cold. The jacuzzi is quite nice with the waterfall. There is a small gym on premise with decent equipment.
Overall, was please with this place.
- 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
