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

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

Great Customer Service! We stayed here for a week because our apartment caught fire and needed somewhere to stay while we waited for the place to be fixed. The people were very nice. The hotel is kept up very nicely. We enjoyed our stay and located in a very good area.

We had a wonderful stay at the Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest for our wedding night. The room was far more than we expected!!!
