We only spent one night at this Candlewood Suites, but were treated like royalty. Everyone was pleasant and helpful and professional. Room was large, clean, well-appointed. Hotel location is excellent to access the entire area. Close to shopping malls, restaurants, etc. Also, we had a pet friendly room, which is a real bonus!

A personable and considerate team at an outstanding location. Great location and easy access from the surrounding area. A very nice pantry and service area for use throughout the stay. Great for an overnight as well as an extended stay. Looking forward to going back!

We were very pleased with the room that we stayed in during our visit to Wake Forest. The room was very spacey, clean and contained everything that we desired in a room. Would not hesitate to stay there again. And we have already recommended the Candlewood Suites to anyone we know who will be traveling to NC.

I stayed here recently while attending a funeral. I had to fly into Raleigh and rented a car to get over to the hotel. I selected this hotel because of the lack of choices in Wake Forest where the funeral was being held. I selected this because of the amenities listed including breakfast and wi-if. Some of it is my... More

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
