We read all the reviews and laughed hysterically at lots of them. Many were very entertaining. So after reading we very skeptically booked two rooms for ourself and the couple we were traveling with. Our thinking was..."it's only 1 short night and the price was fantastic for Boston. How bad could it be?" The truth is, the hotel is old... More

The location is great. Right on the small lake in Wakefield. The hotel has lots of potential but just need a facelift (badly). There is a restaurant and bar there but I didn't go to them but I also didn't hear them. The rooms are generally clean (except that I found a used bar of soap) in the shower. The... More

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!! Booked it based on photos and reviews and I am sorely disappointed. Ceilings cracked, paint chipped, moldy bathroom, carpet floors feel wet, door will only open sometimes, pool not available, lake and playgrounds not accessible. The restaurant has a bowling alley menu and staff who ignore paying clients. Cancelling last 2 days of a 3... More

The room was okay but not as it was reviewed by others or shown in website photographs. Check-in staff was not friendly and failed to share upon check-in how early the continental breakfast ended, so I missed the cutoff time. Only saving grace of hotel, was the Restaurant Manager, who was so kind and nice as to ensure I had... More

We were driving down from Maine and we're going to have to kill about 4 hours before we could check in, and wouldn't you know it Shelly called to tell me our room was ready, so no killing time. The view is amazing, the breakfast is awesome. There's a tavern I the hotel which has great drinks and giant portions.... More

This place is NOT what is pictured on their website, first room had dirty carpet, the tub had hair in it, stains on the bed, asked for another room, it had a half full cup of soda on the night stand, hair on the sheets, they DO NOT change them very often, if at all. We turned the sheet over... More

The Lakeside in has beautiful views, and adequate rooms. The hotel staff was friendly, but there is no elevator, and it is still being renovated. It seems to accommodate a lot of bus tours, and has a lounge downstairs that was very loud. Breakfast was adequate the first day, but the second day they seemed to have run out of... More

Stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed every single night. Super friendly staff always willing to attend to you. The main problem was with public transportation which was not under the control of the hotel. The breakfast could also be better by adding more variety; however this was still tasty and filling
