I cannot say enough about Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest. My husband and I got married in Wake Forest in April 2015 and used Candlewood Suites as one of the hotels for guests. I, along with my parents and sister, arrived early in the week and the staff was amazing the entire time. We had many last minute errands, tasks,... More

During my stay at Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest, North Carolina, I found the entire staff to be very friendly and eager to help in any way possible. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We will be back next year.

I enjoyed everyone @ this hotel and there was 1 particular person who stood out Mr. Rodney he went out of his way to make sure I had not left my purse in the hallway. This was vital to me because all of my money and credit cards were in there. I had fallen ill and the night staff was... More

Nice place, nice administration, very good facilities, excellent restaurants close by (Briggs, Black fin), and to make it even better, a Super Target store at two blocks from the hotel. Let me tell you, breakfast at Briggs is something you don´t want to mist. The hotel has laundry facilities at no extra cost and a modest gym with exercise machines... More

This motel is within walking distance to Target, and next door to Walgreens with a very popular red box. The motel has a large DVDs library so the red box is probably not necessary. Tuesday's and Thursday's they have a small welcome buffet, first come first serve, occasionally catered by chili's. This seems to be very popular because I never... More

This was a return trip for me. Helpful staff and clean room. No noise from the hall wall. Will stay there again on my return visit. The front desk were able to answer any question or make recommendations.

My husband and I were at wits end at the conclusion of the sale and purchase of a new home. All we were looking for was a place to crash until we could move in to our new home. Well from the minute we checked in to the minute we checked out the staff at Candlewood made the stay fun... More

We were vendors at a local Bluegrass Festival and staying at this hotel allowed us to participate in well rested! The pantry has great selections for people who don't want to go out for food. The location is convenient to restaurants and shopping for those who do want to go out.
