We were in Wake Forest for a funeral, and on checking in the clerk had even written a "sorry for your loss" note on our key envelope. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, the rooms were clean and roomy, towels were just the way I like them - not too thick and very absorbent -- and the staff went...

We chose to stay at the Candlewood Suites during our recent local move for a week. We loved the accomodations in particular the full sized refrigerator and use of the washers/dryers. The hotel was located near food and grocery to be able to prepare meals in our large hotel suite. I would highly recommend it!

I stayed at Candlewood Suites for a week in early January while awaiting the birth of my granddaughter. My shih-tzu accompanied me on this trip. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the doggy walk area was clean and convenient. The only suggestion I would recommend is to add extra lighting for security at the pet...

I have never stayed at a Candlewood Suites before and frankly had this not been a required stay for a hockey tournament I would have never stayed.

The Very friendly and accommodating staff greeted us at checkin. They greeted our Sheepadoodle with a treat. The king room, spacious, and very clean, was on the ground floor as we requested.

We stayed at this Candlewood Suites for 5 nights earlier this month. It was our second stay this year (previously the entire month of February, 2015). Everything was great. The room was spotless, quiet, and comfortable. The front desk staff was once again pleasant and helpful. This is our "go to" place to stay when in the area!
