Came to beautiful Wells Beach with my family to celebrate my birthday. Have stayed at Lafayette's before and couldn't wait to return. We love the location right on the beach. Our room on the second floor in Ledgeview was spotless and had all needed amenities...and the view...just SO beautiful. Loved the sunrises. My husband and kids loved the pool and hot tub at night. Hotel is so close to everything..cute shops and restaurants and...a little playground that my grandson loved !!

Room Tip: We prefer the Ledgeview due to the convenience of the indoor pool and hot tub being on the main floor of same building .

We stayed on May 20th, it was a last minute decision and we are so grateful to find an affordable place to stay right on the beach!! We have stayed before (usually our anniversary's) and we love this place! Its such a covenant place so close to the ocean! We had a bit of fiasco at bedtime though.. we lost hot water.. we where moved to the main hotel, which was a free upgrade, and most appreciated. It may have been a inconvenience moving 2 kids and all the luggage but still we were most appreciative of the hot water and how quick it was resolved. Plus if you think about it, it was way out of there hands, we kind of felt bad. We will defiantly go back and highly recommend staying here!!!

We stayed here this week celebrating our first anniversary. A year ago we got married in Maine and stayed at Lafayettes as we always do.
When we arrived there was a beautiful Happy Anniversary card left on the bed for us.
We love Lafayettes and do even more now.
It’s the little things. This is a very sweet gesture and the card was beautiful. The housekeeper made wonderful animal shapes out of the towels on our bed as she always does.
We will always stay here when we visit.
We love Lafayettes.

How great it is because then you’ll steal me room! Discovered this place about 2 years ago and have stayed about 10 times since! We have only stayed off season and it’s perfect ocean view is amazing! Staff are super nice! Price is very reasonable. It’s not fancy but location location location!
