Great room and facilities. The first time I stayed at the Candlewood Suites Wake Forest, I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. Even though it is a direct bill with my company, I would not stay elsewhere when visiting this up and coming area.

I have stayed at this location several times and each time the staff have been friendly and helpful. The laundry facilities and the workout room are an added plus to this hotel. Whenever I am in the Wake Forest area, this is my hotel of choice.

My wife and I had never stayed in a Candlewood Suites Hotel and only stayed in this one because the hotel we usually stay in was booked. The service was excellent and the facility and room had all anyone could ask for. Candlewood Suites has now become our hotel of choice.

This stay was one of the most pleasant I've had, and that stacks against 4 and 5 star hotels. Ally and the rest of the Candlewoods team went above and beyond including providing transportation for my wife who does not drive. In addition, the welcome package, and the personalized card was an amazing touch. All of the staff were very... More

From the moment we walked into the lobby we were treated as family. The service was top notch, the accommodations were perfect, all the services were on spot. We were there for a family wedding and the entire staff attended to all our needs. Our stay was great!

We traveled from CT to Wake Forest, NC to celebrate our daughter's wedding and considered Candlewood Suites home for a week. From the booking of the block of rooms, the many changes (days and kinds of rooms) we made to rooms we booked, and the actual stay, everything was superb! We got to know many of the staff, ( I...
