Lovely place to stay. Everything ready, clean and fresh for our arrival. The staff make you feel comfortable and welcome and they check to see you have everything you need. We slept soundly on the comfortable beds. Stayed there two nights during two different seasons and it was excellent both time. 4th floor is best for Seniors traveling without kiddies.

Staff at Candlewood Suites, Wake Forest/Raleigh, NC, give customers a warm welcome and the information needed about the area. Without a vehicle, it is somewhat difficult to get around the district as there's no public transport, but there's a variety of places to eat nearby. On the other hand, Candlewood Suites has kitchen facilities in the rooms and a supermarket... More
