This is my favorite place to stay. Every time I come to the Raleigh/Durham area I come here. The staff is always friendly. The hotel is always clean. The location is great, and very convenient. I love Tara, and Jennifer in housekeeping is fantastic. Thank you to all of you who work so hard to make this place great!

On Monday, January 11th 2016 I woke up in the middle of the night with bugs in the bed. There were several locations of the bed bugs; in the bed, on the bed skirt, and on the restroom floor. I went to the front desk to report the problem. They offered to move me to a different room within the... More

Fours days of quiet relaxation. Visiting our daughter to get away from a hectic fall. My room has a kitchenette which is just right size for one person. Pleasantly appointed. The building seems to be quiet with no noise coming throught the walls from either side. The facility is clean and well maintained. The only problem I've had is using... More

We are glad to hear you had such a nice experience while visiting your daughter.

I apologize you experienced the same situation with your phone. Definitely happy to hear your... More

I am a fan of Candlewood Suites but I wasn't feeling this one. It basically needs a make over. The area is decent close to freeways and food spots but it just needs a do-over. More modernized. I can't say anything else because thats what really stood out for me. Oh there is free laundry with newer washing machines. Apart... More
