It's location was convenient to the things we wanted to do visiting Raleigh -- museums, golf, and eating out. It was clean with a small kitchen with everything we needed for making our own breakfast. This hotel doesn't have a free breakfast but an "honor" system of things you can purchase in their Pantry room of refrigerated and freezer cases... More

I certainly apologize for the inconvenience of our fire alarm sounding however; as you stated "it works" which is always "safer" than the alternative. :) I received a "personal" phone call at 11:30pm from our Fire Alarm Company too that evening. Thank you very much for your very kind review of our hotel and also recognizing a member of our... More

We stayed here for just one night, as I had a meeting the next day at North Carolina State University. The room was quite small, but had a full kitchen and small dinning table in it. The facilities were excellent and there is a supermarket very close, where we bought ingredients to cook our evening meal. This was a nice... More

We picked this place as was close to where we were visiting, the price was right and the reviews were good.

Due to travel requirements, I reserved a room here for one night. The room included a refrigerator, stove, microwave, dinnerware, pots/pans and silverware. The room is designed for a long term stay customer and I really couldn't use the amenities for just one night. So, the room wasn't a perfect fit for my needs. That's not Candlewood's fault - just...

I recently traveled to Raleigh, NC for an important event.

We were in the Raleigh area for the weekend to attend a funeral. The hotel common areas were very clean and the rooms were as well. The weekend manager, Ken Hardy, was super friendly and made us feel welcome. He exhibited excellent customer service. We will definitely recommend Candlewood Suites.

Some friends and I drove about 3 hours to Raleigh, to stay here just for one night, for a dance event.
