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?

Stayed for a month while waiting for a home. It overall was nice but really wish they had a pool. There were movies to sign out, free laundry and it was very quiet overall. The bad things were that the air condition in the gym did not work, and the cigarette receptacle was in the area where a grill was... More

This was my first time staying at Candlewood Suites. It's really a studio apartment complete with a small kitchenette. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the pillows were lumpy and not very. It's also not at all easy to get in and out on the road at certain times of... More

I have just spend 6 nights at Candlewood Suites in Apex, and while I am not likely to stay there again, it was certainly not awful. First, as others have said, know that they cater to longer stays. I knew that, but here are the things that I didn't know (perhaps I didn't read enough reviews). 1. No cleaning service... More

Well appointed extended stay room with everything you would need. For us short timers though, they don't provide daily maid service - which when I travel, I enjoy. Past that the internet connection was good - super friendly staff, good water pressure in the shower.

I've stayed at other highly-ranked hotels in Apex and I believe this is the best hotel in the area. It is a good value for the money and the staff is helpful. The cupboard room is very good and reasonably priced. The rooms have a homey feel to them. They are well-appointed with all you need for an extended stay.... More

Looks like a run of the mill hotel from the outside but was pleasantly surprised to find a full kitchen, huge closet, desk/table, reclining chair and large bathroom! Staff was incredibly nice at check in. This was a quick, one night stay for us but would most definitely look at staying at this chain again!!

Great location, clean, quite and a wonderful staff to boot. You can't go wrong here. We were there for only 1 night, but they sold me on looking for a Candlewood in locations that we will be staying longer in.

I had to be in the area for business. Having never stayed in a Candlewood Suites before, I booked this based on the reviews. I am glad I did! Check-in was smooth and friendly. The cupboard room was always well-stocked and the prices were reasonable. It was refreshing to actually see something on the honor system in today's cynical world.... More
