I slept like a baby in the comfortable bed and the staff was stellar and privided me with a gift when I arrived. The exercise room was spacious and has a good amount if equipment including a circuit machine. My only feedback was the lack of towels or disinfectant wipes in the exercise room.

A clean, comfortable property is paired with a friendly and professional staff. I have stayed here multiple weeks this year so far. Very satisfied. Convenient access to Raleigh, good local food and nearby parks. It is easy to settle into the work week and still be comfortable.

I had the great pleasure to visit North Carolina. My trip was business related and consisted of five days of training. Needless to say, a quiet, comfortable and cleanly hotel was an absolute must. I was given several recommendations for local hotels and chose the Candlewood. My decision proved to be an outstanding choice. As I arrived at the property,... More

The thing you need to know about Candlewood is that it is an extended stay hotel. The staff were extremely kind,personable, and knowledegable about the surrounding area. There is no restaurant or bar at the hotel but centrally located to many different places to eat. The pantry is a mini store that has food,snacks,beverages, and even toiletries but a Walgreens...
