Have stayed in another Candlewood Suites many times. So this was a pleasant surprise in terms of room quality, size of lobby area and ambience. Looks like new - or recently renovated. Can't comment about price because I booked using some reward points. Still I would say it is worth the money (or points).

Room Tip: If it fits your budget - best place for long-term stay.

The Candlewood Suites was a great place for us to stay while visiting our son that attends SE Seminary. Very close to his apartment and was pet friendly - which allowed us to bring our dog along. One down side was that the desk clerk at check-in was only on his second night and was very unsure about the check-in process. He was very nice and was trying very hard. A little overwhelming task to be left alone on his second day. we did have a problem with the billing, but this was taken care of quickly. We will try to stay here again. Thanks!

Gentlepersons,

My intended short stay at Candlewood Suites, Wake Forest, NC., morphed into and extended
stay. During this time I was privy to the everyday inner working and management of this hotel.

One has to truly appreciate the time, effort, and dedication that it takes into smoothly operating this property. Mr. and Mrs. Milan Patel work tirelessly to provide their guests with a home away from home experience.

It is not only the Candlewood Suites organization but the "Faces of CWS WF", the Patels and their Staff, that have guests returning for repeated stays.

I am active within the Wake Forest area and CWS WF enjoys a good reputation and rapport within the community.

Continued Success to All,

Laurine Young

I road out to the hotel right before I scheduled my extended stay. When I looked at the room my first thought was "WOW - this looks just like the photo on the web site". Everything the Web site says is correct! The room is big and the bed is just like home. The BBQ gill is clean and easy to use... The also provide "Guest" night on Tues and Thurs,,, dinner.. what a great idea! I will be back !!!!!

Room Tip: Does not have a pool or an attached restaurant - however there are plenty of resturants near by and within walking.

We stayed here for only one night - in the area to attend ice hockey game w/family from Richmond. Was especially impressed at all the items supplied in the kitchenette. You had everything you needed for an extended stay - glasses, silverware, dishes, pots and pans. The only thing wrong in the room, was that the ice maker did not work and the hotel does not have an ice machine (we had to get ice from the front desk). The only other problem was a little issue over getting a printed receipt when we checked out - they wanted to email us a receipt because we were with a hockey group and received a discount. I also missed having the availability of a continental breakfast, but I guess that's what you get with a suite hotel. This is a good location and the hotel is new and clean.

Thank you for your candid review! We enjoyed having your group stay with us and we look forward to your next visit. In the future, we will be happy to turn on the Ice Makers before your group arrives (by request). For health reasons we are not allowed to leave the ice makers on. In addition, we do have breakfast, lunch and dinner options in our Candlewood Cupboard. Thank you for taking the time to review our beautiful new hotel. The entire team at the Candlewood Suites Wake Forest truly appreciated it! See you soon!
