This is an excellent Candlewood. Clean, extremely staff, and well stocked cupboard. Very quite and night. Close to shopping and restaurants. I stayed four days and was sad to leave. Also, an excellent value.

The hotel is conveniently located near plenty of stores and restaurants in the Wake Forest area. It was very clean and has great customer service. Due to freezing temperatures, some sort of water valve broke which led to no hot water, obviously beyond their control. They apologized upon check-out and were very friendly. Then, they went the extra mile. Later... More

My family and I recently stayed here while renovations were being done on our house. My husband and I thought that being in a room with two kids would be tight and overwhelming but the suite was large and roomy. The room was up to date and very clean! Our favorite part was the large selection of movies and board... More

My husband and I stayed at Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest with our dog over the Christmas holiday. The staff was very friendly and polite and the room was clean, comfy and quiet.

We have stayed at Candlewood in Wake Forest before, and we will stay there again, thanks to the terrific staff. Ally Stuart was especially helpful to us when we had some "senior citizen" problems with WiFi connectivity. She fixed everything quickly and cheerfully.

This is my second stay and received the same great experience both times. Very personable hotel like your home away from home. They treat you like a member of the family. I was here on business and it contributed to a successful outcome.

We stayed 4 nights for the Christmas holiday. We chose to stay here two years in a row because of the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff. The rooms have a kitchenette with a full size fridge and microwave available. I think the rooms are a bit small but how much time do you really spend... 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.
