We have been coming here for years at least once a year. It is always clean and well maintained, it is a pleasure communicating with them, they are so happy and up beat. We look forward to see what new thing they have done or added from year to year. Highly recommend staying here.

Our family has been staying here since I was a child and I am continuing the family tradition with my granddaughter! The oceanfront rooms are truly oceanfront - listening to the waves day and night, and watching the amazing sunrise are just a couple of reasons I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they have added Keurig Coffeemakers to each room for convenience. I would recommend a stay at Lafayette to everyone!

Room Tip: Beachfront Lodge is my favorite!

We stayed here in April (off season) which was nice because the weather was fairly warm, but it was not crowded at all. It was nice having the entire beach to ourselves to walk up and down. There were only a few other guests at the hotel too, so we had the pool to ourselves and the gym. Our room was on the small side, but had a nice king size bed and an update bathroom. There was also a large flat screen tv and a massage chair to go with it. We were on the first floor and had a small patio which overlooked the ocean. It was only a few steps from the sand. The pool and gym were both in separate buildings, but close enough for only a 1 min walk. The gym was small but had enough equipment for a decent workout. The pool was very clean and bright. There was a hot tub next to it as well. Overall, I really enjoyed the stay here. I would come back here, but maybe in the off season again. Wells can get very crowded during the summer months.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are only steps from the beach

We usually stay somewhere else when coming up to Maine but we decided to switch it up a bit this time--and we're glad we did! We got a room with a fireplace and an amazing ocean view for $109 a night. It's wonderful to fall asleep and wake up to the sound if the ocean. We aren't very far from the main road so it's easy to get to anywhere we want to go. I'm especially happy to be so close to Billy's Chowder House. The value is great and the staff are awesome. We also made sure to take advantage of the free wifi, heated pool, and super relaxing hot tub. We're already planning to come back here next year!

We have been coming here for years and we stay as a group of friends on the off-season. We like the quiet times when it is a little less expensive. The staff are friendly and courteous and very helpful. The oceanfront rooms have a gorgeous view and the rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable and clean. The hot tub is amazing and we love the indoor pool also. A fantastic deal for the price!!

Room Tip: 2nd floor has the best views in both buildings.

We have stayed at Lafayette's Oceanfront Resort many times over the past 20 years and have never been disappointed. Staff is very friendly and helpful and often goes above and beyond in their efforts. Rooms have always been clean and well furnished. Each year I am seeing updating and new changes. I hope to spend many more vacations and weekend get aways here at Lafayette.

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
