Nice place, nice administration, very good facilities, excellent restaurants close by (Briggs, Black fin), and to make it even better, a Super Target store at two blocks from the hotel. Let me tell you, breakfast at Briggs is something you don´t want to mist. The hotel has laundry facilities at no extra cost and a modest gym with exercise machines... More

This motel is within walking distance to Target, and next door to Walgreens with a very popular red box. The motel has a large DVDs library so the red box is probably not necessary. Tuesday's and Thursday's they have a small welcome buffet, first come first serve, occasionally catered by chili's. This seems to be very popular because I never... More

This was a return trip for me. Helpful staff and clean room. No noise from the hall wall. Will stay there again on my return visit. The front desk were able to answer any question or make recommendations.

My husband and I were at wits end at the conclusion of the sale and purchase of a new home. All we were looking for was a place to crash until we could move in to our new home. Well from the minute we checked in to the minute we checked out the staff at Candlewood made the stay fun... More

We were vendors at a local Bluegrass Festival and staying at this hotel allowed us to participate in well rested! The pantry has great selections for people who don't want to go out for food. The location is convenient to restaurants and shopping for those who do want to go out.

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.
