“Outstanding new property”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

Relatively new property with a very professional and welcoming staff. Excellent condition and a great location with convenience to retail and highway.

Room Tip: The suite with separate bedroom is worth the extra cost.

Candlewood Suites Wake Forest was a wonderful place to which to escape the hurricane threatening my home in eastern part of state. I found a spacious, super clean, extremely comfortable room for myself and my two cats. The kitchenette was adequately supplied with table settings, utensils and cooking pots/pans. WiFi easily accessed. The staff, onsite and on the phone while making the reservations, were always efficient and courteous. Hotel is conveniently located near shopping and dining. Although my trip was one of necessity, I will most definitely look at Candlewood Suites when traveling for pleasure! This Wake Forest hotel far exceeded my expectations. Wonderful place!!

I came across this hotel while trying to get away from Hurricane Irene. I carpooled with two other families and after they left me stranded here with no way to get home the nice people here said they would personally drive me home. I live 3 hours away so this was totally out of their way. They made sure me and my kids were doing okay and had everything we needed,offered to drive me to the store to get food,and even gave me $5 off at their cupboard which is like a tiny store in the hotel. The manager as well as all the staff there are fantastic. I recommend this hotel to everyone and will definitely be going to stay with them if Im ever in the area again. Best Hotel experience ever. After my 3 day stay the manager made sure one of the employers got me and my kids home safe. Im so grateful to them all. Of all the places to be left stranded im so glad it was with them =)
The room was nice,very clean, and fit us comfortably. Overall this hotel has a very Homey feel to it.

They provided everything we needed, including free washer/dryer, electric range, dishwasher, refrigerator, comfortable beds, recliner, free Internet access, working desk for our projects, excellent service, and a very reasonable price. There were some other amenities we did not have time to use, but that were available, such as an excellent exercise room with large screen TV, snack bar, etc. We found this to be the most practical hotel stay we've ever experienced!

This hotel has only been open for a month so everything was still in new condition. The bed was the 2nd most comfortable we've found in all our years staying in hotels. It was also very nice to have flat panel tv's that actually have HD channels available...most hotels don't bother with the HD at all even though they have the flat panels. Most hotels are rather loud and noisy in that you hear the other guests but this one was very quiet and extremely enjoyable. We don't get up to the Wake Forest area very often but we will defintiely stay at this hotel again the next time we visit that area.

My wife, son and I spent 6 days at this newly constructed hotel this July. We were on a house hunting trip and were quite comfortable. The well appointed rooms have a kitchenette that is great after a long day for a quick meal.

Staff was very friendly and always eager to serve.

Would recommend to anyone traveling in the area. Great place.
