My husband and I decided to stay at this hotel while visiting family in the area this past month. I must say we were truly impressed! Every single staff member from front desk to housekeeping truly went out of their way to ensure that we had a great stay, and that alone you don't see very often. When it comes... More

We have stayed here two weeks each year for the past three. The rates are excellent; the service is very good; it's located close to grocery, drug, convenience and service stations. The staff is excellent. We like having our breakfast in our room and it's just a great value.

I was very pleased with the Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest. I had never stayed at a Candlewood Suites before, but I will definitely in the future. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the amenities at the hotel were spectacular. We came to Wake Forest for a soccer tournament, and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much out... More

Ally and Jennifer were super friendly and welcoming. Our suite was very clean and fully stocked at all times. I travel a lot & tend to compare hotels. Shockingly, this outdid a notorious franchise (Sandals) but saved nearly 75% of the cost. I definitely will make this my home away from home when visiting my in-laws!

New and Clean. Great customer service. We paid the extra $ and got the 1 bedroom.....loved it. Bed was very comfortable. The hotel is just off a major highway and there are many stores near by, including a huge shopping mall. If you want to work out, they have everything you need. If you hate the TV stations offered, they... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, and was impressed with the quality and standard of this hotel. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Loved the size of the suites, and the kitchen facilities.

Excellent staff...who are courteous, professional, accommodating, and welcoming. I have never felt at home as I do here, since spending 5 months in a hotel in Pampa, Texas! The staff made my wife's birthday so very special, without having met her!
