My wife and I spend 24 days at Candlewood between the sale and buy of our house. We had absolutely no issues during our stay. The staff was always available and helpful. The rooms and overall hotel was clean and safe. During our stay we noticed that the majority of the guests were either famlies in transition like us or... More

Looked like new upgrades or new building, I don't know. Friendly staff. Room was large and the regular size refrigerator was really nice. Did not hear other rooms which is always good. No breakfast but that was fine. All vending was in lobby.

So much better than I expected in every way. Clean, comfortable, well-equipped, quiet. Very responsive wireless Internet service included, not an add-on. Absolutely awesome towels! No obvious roughneck/contractor clientele (sorry, but it is what it is - deal with it). Compares VERY favorably to Residence Inn and blows Extended Stay America out of the water.

Spent a week here, and the staff was friendly, I called the afternoon I was checking in since I knew I would be arriving late and asked for a room on a higher floor. The person on the phone stated they could put me on the third floor, however when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised with the top floor.... More

I want to start off by thanking Russell who works overnight during the audit shift at this hotel. I work at an IHG property in downtown Raleigh and on Valentine's night every hotel in a 20 minute radius from us was sold out, including ours. We had some problems occur and we were down a hotel room at our hotel... More

Clean and modern. Staff helpful. Rooms are large. The hotel is mainly an extended stay hotel so it has all the goodies. They even have a free laundry.. The rooms are very large. The one issue I have is that with a large room they should have installed King beds not Quee.

I stayed here for 2 days honestly because Apex only has 3 hotels. My advice: Go next door to Holiday Inn Express, they serve breakfast and have daily cleaning, which I thought was a must at hotels. Candle-wood allows pets but do not have daily cleaning so if you stay more than 1 day and want clean towels YOU must... More

Pretty ordinary. No room safe, which would have been welcome. Much help available that you may ask for, but the general feel of the place is plain, simple, no-frills. Having a recliner in the room was a nice touch, I mean, how did they know I like that?
