I had a function to attend that was held at this particular hotel. As I frequently use hotels, I was disappointed at the site of the hotel. This hotel is going through renovations so I began to look past that. I went to the bar and was greeted by the smooth sounds of strumming guitars because this was the live... More

Stayed at the Lord Wakefield (CLARION) hotel North Ave Wakefield. Up from Florida for Family funeral.... Must say we had the "BEST" breakfast and Dinners at the hotel restraunt. Would rate this gem A FOUR OUT OF FIVE STAR.. LORD WAKEFIELD IS A HIDDEN gem THAT Wakefield people need to know about and try. Frank from the Villages in Florida.

Me and a couple of friends needed a place to stay last minute and this hotel was friendly, cheap, and accommodating. They realized that we were a couple of students trying to save some money so they offered us the biggest room in the hotel. The room overlooked the lake and it had all the basics (air conditioner, televisions, ...etc).... More

Checked into this hotel on a Thursday night (1/16/14) because friend was participating in the local band night in the lounge. Though the bar was really not that busy, my friend was ignored for at least 10 minutes when he tried to buy a drink for me. We ordered food, (chicken parm and sirloin tips)which were surprisingly very tasty with... More

Highly recommend! Spent 6 nights during the Thanksgiving holiday. Family members live 5 minutes away from the hotel. It is a wonderful place to return to after hectic holiday fun. We stayed in a renovated room with an unobstructed view of the lake. It was very comfortable and decorated nicely. The staff was accommodating and friendly. We will definitely stay... More

I am in town for business. I want a warm room, comfort, friendly staff who can answer questions,a place where I can find affordable food, I have found it all here. It is close to the highways. Easy to find. A nice place to rest after work. Breakfast is at a good price. Try the quesadillas after work
