“Great hotel”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Only stayed one night but found this hotel to be clean, well priced, and having everything needed to stay longer. Staff friendly. Area safe. Free washers and dryers-a plus when you travel. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

We needed a place to stay nearby while in the area on business. This was the perfect spot! The hotel personnel were terrific and friendly. The room was spacious and had all of the amenities you could want in a "home away from home" to include a little kitchenette area complete with fridge, microwave, sink, coffee maker and stove top! They even supplied dishes and utensils. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was even a nice reclining chair set up by the television to make you feel like you really are at home settling in for a nice quiet evening after a long day. It is in a very convenient location with plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. It is also off of a main highway so traveling to and from was quite easy. We would definitely recommend for a short or long stay. If you join the rewards program there are also some nice perks attached.

Room Tip: No room choice could be bad here. It is far enough off of the road so you really aren't bothere...

Nice clean hotel with plenty of places close by that we needed...especially a Walmart. The staff was friendly, the room clean, beds comfortable, & of course the full kitchen with all the amenities we needed. We washed our clothing on our last evening (comp washer/dryers). We had a flat screen TV & nice desk area. We would stay here again.

The Candlewood Suites is new and is coming up to a year's anniversary.

The front desk staff was great, cordial and very helpful. Gave recommendations of places to eat and sites to see in the area. The room was clean and amenities were just like home i.e., plates, glasses, flatware, coffee pot, dishwasher and more, to accommodate a long stay, which we did (10 days). Kudos!

This was my first Candlewood Suites stay and I would go there again. I needed a pet-friendly room which they do have with a $75 non-refundable pet fee. They provide a magnet for the door that lets people know you have a pet inside. I liked that in case maintenance or housekeeping needed to get in while I was away.

This is an extended stay hotel and my room was like an efficiency apartment with a kitchenette that included full fridge, sink, microwave, stove and dishwasher. The cabinets were stocked with plates, bowls, cookware and utensils. The room was very clean and most everything appeared new.

The staff is helpful and friendly. Housekeeping only comes by once a week (should have been at least twice) and you have to ask the front desk if you need more towels, trash bags, tissue, etc. I especially enjoyed walking through the lobby with toilet paper rolls. C'mon Candlewood, bump up the housekeeping visits! The on-site laundry is included and you can buy detergent and softener from the small store in the lobby.

The bed was fluffy and comfortable and the pillows were just right. There were three different chairs and a desk in the room, too. Flat screen tv and wall mounted thermostat controls were good and they have a strong wifi connection that's included.

There are a couple things I'd like to see done differently besides extra housekeeping. Unfortunately, the water pressure in the shower was very weak and that's a pet-peeve of mine. And it would have been helpful to have a convenient garbage drop off in the building instead of making the guests take their trash out to the dumpster across the parking lot.

Overall, minor nuisances and no deal breakers.

My husband travels for business. We stayed at this hotel for probably 3 months or so... The staff were super nice, always greeting you and making sure everything was good. The rooms were clean. The hotel was rather new so that's always a plus. They have a great kitchen, and flat screen TV's. The laundry is free! The workout room was great, sometimes there would be no towels in the work out room, but that's not a huge deal. The only issue we had wass the fire alarms, I can't begin to tell you how many times we had to evacuate the hotel due to the fire alarms going off. Most of the time it was when people would cook bacon or something and smoke up the room. It was a great way to meet other hotel guests. :) But waking us up while we were sleeping was never a fun time to evacuate for a non-fire realated incident. Other than that, it's in a good location.. close to shopping and grocery stores and close to all the hustle of Raleigh. Great hotel, great staff, as always overall pleased with Candlewood Suites and Priority Club Hotels.

Booked into this hotel with my husband on business. I stayed one week and he will be staying overall for nearly a month. Staff are very accommodating and pleasant. Laundry is free. The only downside which I found a little difficult to understand was that housekeeping is only once a week. If you ask for extras, i.e. bathroom toiletries they will give you more at reception. There is a wonderful patio/gazebo facility at the side of the building with a bbq and full gas supplied for you to cook your own meals. There is a shop with numerous items to either add to your bill or pay cash at reception or in the slot available. There is also a well equiped gym.

Room Tip: It does front onto a four lane highway, so a request for rooms at back could be better option.
