My husband and I stayed at Candlewood for the month of February while on an extended visit with family. Everything was just great. The room was spacious, quiet, and thankfully had a comfy bed. Really liked having the kitchenette and the recliner chair. The oversized closet was also a good thing! The staff is great, in particular Meredith and Ally.... More

We use Candlewood Wake Forest on a very regular basis for clients and the staff is simply amazing. We love the hotel - if you are visiting Wake Forest, this is the property to stay at. Walking distance to Walgreens, Target, Bojangles and plenty of other restaurants. Our clients LOVE Candlewood! I have posted before, but this is just in... More

Even thoughwe had a few minor issues during our stay, things were taken care of by staff in a speedy and thorough manner. Will be back. Also if you are visiting someone at Southeastern Theological they offer a nice discount.

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!

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.
