“Annual Winter Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

6 years in a row for our winter getaway. Lafayette is always clean and the staff is always hospitable. Rates are very reasonable and the view cannot be beaten. I highly recommend this hotel as we will be back again next year.

Room Tip: 1st floor in Driftwood with sliders and a view of the ocean is a great experience.

We have been coming here for 18 years and once again we had an excellent experience. The staff is awesome and the rooms are always clean and constantly being updated.We always come here in September and we decided this year to come up for our anniversary weekend as well. Had a great time

Room Tip: 3rd floor in the main building has the best views

Room 131 is perfect! Clean, tempurpedic king bed, in room two person jacuzzi, electric fireplace and ocean view. At first my fiance and I were worried since the motel check in was very dated. When we got to our room we were pleasantly surprised. Definitely would return to this in the winter for a weekend getaway.

It's been awhile since we've been here,but we were nicely surprised at the upgrading of the rooms!The elevator in the Driftwoods was a nice surprise as we usually get a room on the second floor(better views).How nice not having to tote baggage up the stairs.
We did encounter one problem when we
got to our room though,our toilet would not flush!One quick call to the front desk and with in 15 min. the problem was fixed!
The staff here is remarkable at how fast they respond to any problems!

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach can't be beat!

I've been coming here 2-3 times a year for 12 years now, usually October-April. The off-season rates are excellent and I love the quiet beach at those times of year. I avoid the place in the summer; the rates are astronomical and the beach is crazy-crowded. That's to be expected, and some people don't mind, but it's not my style and not in my price range.
Lafeyette's is essentially a motel but I hate to call it that, because it's so much more. It's not quite a "resort", as the name claims, but it's got all the necessary amenities plus an awesome pool and hot tub with waterfall! And it's RIGHT on the ocean! And the rooms have fridges and microwaves! I'm not going to mention the special amenities my favorite rooms have, because then they'd be even more popular and harder for me to book! This is one awesome place and my favorite quick getaway. Oh, and the people at the front desk are friendly and helfpul.

My boyfriend and I came here just to get away for the night. We got a room with an ocean view which was very reasonably priced and very very clean. The staff was as friendly and helpful as they could possibly be. Our main reason for going was to sit by the pool and just relax. Upon arrival we learned that our room was not in the main building where the pool is located.The woman at the front desk immediately changed our room to one with a view in the main building. The pool is clean and great to lounge by. Great for people with kids or just looking to get away. We are planning a trip back later in the winter for my birthday. A great break up to winter monotony.

We have been coming here for many years, always a good experience. The ocean is at your door front, can hear the surf 24/7. Great restaurants in the area. The locals are also very friendly and helpful.

The one thing I would like to see change is taking the $1.00 charge for 'phone' of from the bill, seems so silly in the 21st century,given the fact there is free WIFI. They may also need to upgrade to an electronic system for booking and check - in, and accept credit cards rather than a check for paying the first nights stay to hold a room.

Room Tip: Staying in the oceanfront rooms is the best

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
