I have been here for 90 days and couldn't have been treated any better. The friends at the front desk are awesome and treat me and mine like family. Under the circumstances, there is nothing more i could ask for. Everyone here from the front desk to the sweet ladies that clean up behind us, truly take care of us.

We visit Wake Forest often in the process of buying a home and relocating there. Candlewood Suites has become our go-to place to stay for many reasons. Its convenient location is important, but the foremost reason we stay there is the staff. Without fail, we have been warmly greeted and accommodated.

We stayed at the hotel for a family wedding. Loved the fact that you accept pets! My only issue with my stay was that the hair dryer did not work. Found that out while my hair was soaking wet. I call the front desk and they said they would be in to check it out. After waiting a half hour,... More

My husband and I stayed at Candlewood for the month of February while on an extended visit with family. Everything was just great. The room was spacious, quiet, and thankfully had a comfy bed. Really liked having the kitchenette and the recliner chair. The oversized closet was also a good thing! The staff is great, in particular Meredith and Ally.... More

Stayed here the week of 03/08/15. While it is a very clean and comfortable place, I was not to happy to find out that upon check-in, there were 3 forms with several places to initial. One of these forms had my complete and hand-written credit card number on it. Later, I found out that these registration forms (including my full... More

Even thoughwe had a few minor issues during our stay, things were taken care of by staff in a speedy and thorough manner. Will be back. Also if you are visiting someone at Southeastern Theological they offer a nice discount.

We only spent one night at this Candlewood Suites, but were treated like royalty. Everyone was pleasant and helpful and professional. Room was large, clean, well-appointed. Hotel location is excellent to access the entire area. Close to shopping malls, restaurants, etc. Also, we had a pet friendly room, which is a real bonus!
