“A great place run by an exceptional staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

I had to stay there for 3 months. I had sold my house and was worried where I would end up. I had never stayed in an extended stay. What a great choice by me! Even after my stay, Milan expedited some services I had asked him to do and he went above and beyond to do so. As a whole, the staff and company have left a great impression of me. THANK YOU!

Our entire team really appreciates your review. During your stay you became a part of our family and to this day we still have team members who ask about your well being. It makes us feel great that we were able to make our beautiful hotel your home away from home for a little while. This is our goal, but I feel our team does this naturally. It is great to hear that you appreciated that. When you're back in town please don't forget to come by and say hello! Thank you again, we'll see you soon!

This hotel was fantastic for our family of 4. We were in town to visit relatives so location did not matter much. It is located very close to restaurants and Target so if you need anything it is there. Front desk staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Room was spacious with plenty of kitchen amenities (though we did not use them) and best of all, a door to the bedroom so kids could sleep in the living area so peace and quiet for all! We didn't have time for it but no pool would have been a consideration. There was noise outside the hotel at night (I think soccer players in town for a tournament) but a call down to the front desk quieted them down. This experience made me once again realize I love Hilton brand hotels!

Room Tip: Fresh Crispy Cream donuts are right around the corner!

We stayed at Candlewood Suites, Wake Forest when we were relocating from Massachusetts to North Carolina. We stayed for about 3 months, and was a very enjoyable 3 months. The hotel is extremely clean, and the staff is very friendly. It is in a great location...right near Capital Blvd, Target, Walgreens, and of course Bojangles. I would absolutely recommend Candlewood Wake Forest to anyone who is looking for a great hotel at an incredible price. Milan and Sabrina (sorry if I spelled your name wrong), were fantastic, especially when we adopted a dog half way through our stay. This hotel is definitely better than any hotel I have stayed in, the rooms are great, and the Manager's reception is very nice every Tuesday and Thursday night..they even have beer and wine available!

Spent 7 nights at Candlewood Wake Forest over XMAS week while visiting family in Wake Forest. Had read the positive reviews on this site and got exceptional weekly rate for a studio king - better than any other hotel in area. Everything about this stay was great. Accomodations were roomy and comfortable. Really loved having the kitchen facilities even though we didn't spend much time in the room. Room and hotel were clean with quality amenities. Hotel staff were responsive and helpful with anything we needed. Maid service isn't provided unless requested as this is an 'extended stay' hotel. We opted to have service every other day to refresh towels and have bed made, etc. Fitness center is small but has quality equipment. Location was perfect right off the highway. Would absolutely stay here again when visiting the area.

I'm staying at Candlewood Suites for more than 3 months now. The staff is more than helpful and always nice. The rooms are clean, big and well obtained.
I especially like the managers reception. They offer it every Tuesday and Thursday. Always some good food.

We stayed at Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest for a couple of months while home hunting. We were treated very well from start to finish. The accommodations were excellent. Nice large room, full size fridge, stove top cooking, large bathroom and all very clean. Room was very bright and comfortable. The attention to detail from all the staff members was excellent. We felt very at home and comfortable with everyone. Any needs from us were addressed immediately and completed with a smile. The location of this hotel is positioned nicely for all necessary amenities one might need when traveling. A large choice of restaurants, Target, Pet Smart, Grocery Stores just to name a few. The Hotel and surrounding establishments are newly built and the area is very nice. Very easy access to main road/hwys, but not too close so it is very quiet. Nice outside pavilion/barbecue area and nice lighted parking. Would recommend Candlewood Suites in Wake Forest to anyone and feel very confident that they too will enjoy their stay as much as we did. Thanks to all of the staff members for your hard work and making our stay the best we have ever experienced.

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.
