We stayed for a wedding recently and the owner of the hotel and the front desk staff quoted me a certain price and I ended up paying more than what I was quoted. Tried to speak with the owner about being misquoted and he was VERY RUDE!!!!! Asked ahead of time was there any bug history and when I arrived... More

We lived here for over a month while waiting to get into our home. Our room was spacious and clean. The Tuesday and Thursday night receptions made dinner easy! The staff was wonderful and assisted us with anything that we needed.

They decorated our room and put lots of yummy goodies in there for us to enjoy! I will have to say it is pretty awesome that they even took the time to do that for us!... More

We stayed at the hotel for 5 months waiting for our house to be built. The staff was very accomodating and friendly at all times. We would recommend Candlewood Suites for anyone staying for an extended time. We fell in love with Alley and Mirisa and enjoyed talking and joking with them as we would come and go. Thanks for...

I had the great pleasure to make reservations at The Wke Forest NC Candlewood Suites where I was met with a pleasant, friendly host, Jennifer Byron. She was very accommodating and allowed me to photograph the Bridal Suite once it was set for the newlywed couple whose wedding I was to attend the day I checked in. The photographs were... More

This is a very well managed hotel. The front desk and cleaning staff did an excellent job and were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and well appointed and offered a full kitchen. I would stay again on my next visit to Wake Forest. Thank you!

Our son was recently married at The Sutherland in Wake Forest. Candlewood Suites was the perfect choice for our wedding party and guest accommodations while in town. Comfortable beds and very friendly staff. They were very helpful with a last minute change in room type for my room.

My wife (soapbox r) posted a review of this hotel on the morning of May 25.

First and foremost, hands down this is the hardest working team of employees I have seen at any business. I am in the nursing business and I was amazed.
