If you not addicted to daily maid service, this hotel is a great combination of price and accommodations, large nice rooms, full kitchens for a good price. Advise don't wait too close to your trip to make reservation or you might get locked out of your dates

Nice, clean and comfortable. Good comfortable beds, pleasant and welcoming desk staff - Angela and especially Rodney. There is a small convenience store within the hotel, but there is a Super target a short walk from the hotel and a Walgreens even closer. If there are two or more people in your party, you might want to ask for accommodations... More

This was one of my best hotel stays, and trust me, I've been to quite a few. Everyone was attentive to our needs, and the beds were the best I've sleep in...outside of my own, of course. The room was clean, and having a mini kitchen really helped. All of the staff were happy and truly cared about my stay.... More

Great rooms, friendly and courteous staff. Great service. Enjoyed the managers complimentary food. Liked the gym facility. Wish there was a indoor or outdoor pool. I would recommend this hotel to my family, friends and business associates.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest. Everything went smoothly from booking through departure. The staff was very willing to assist with eatery recommendations and neighborhoods to check out. I'd strongly recommend this hotel.

Great room and facilities. The first time I stayed at the Candlewood Suites Wake Forest, I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. Even though it is a direct bill with my company, I would not stay elsewhere when visiting this up and coming area.
