My husband, our 6 yr old I stayed for three weeks. ALL of the employees were always friendly, helpful, and took care of everything. The property was always clean and well maintained. The manager's reception 2 nights a week is a nice perk. There is a cute sitting area and grill in the back. Highly recommend!

I stayed here off and on for a few weeks while working out of town. This was one of the cleanest well managed hotels I've ever visited. The staff was great, and always made me feel like I was being welcomed home after a long hard day of work. I will definitely stay here again of the opportunity presents itself.

I have been staying at the Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest, NC since the beginning of the fall semester at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The staff is friendly, has answers to my questions and the rooms are consistently clean and quiet. I am grateful to be able to relax and study at Candlewood Suites. Blessings, Cheri D.

There are very few hotels in Wake Forest, NC so the choices are slim. This one was OK. I usually stay at Marriott or Hilton properties and am not familiar with IHG brands. This hotel is much like a Town Place Suites - sort of on the lower end of the Marriott spectrum and not a property that I would... More

We stayed here for one night while driving through the area and I can't say enough about this hotel. The service was impeccable. The rooms were spotless. The beds were perfect. There is space to stretch out and get the wiggles out after a long day of driving. Everything was exactly as we needed for it to be. There is... More

While visiting family in Wake Forest I chose to stay at the Candlewood because of it's location to my families homes. A friend was traveling with me who is extremely picky with everything and doesn't quite care staying away from home. I admit I was a bit on edge waiting to have to deal with my friends hang ups and... More
