A last-minute trip came up for my family. The exceptionally clean facilities (the first hotel I've stayed at in years where it didn't have that 'hotel smell'; it simply smelled clean and fresh), great location, and a very reasonable price all made for a wonderful experience. Each member of the staff we interacted with was friendly,knowledgeable, and helpful. They were also able to accomodate a special request regarding check-out. We couldn't ask for a better experience. Highly recommend.

My mother recently passed away. We were expecting out of town guests to come for her funeral. Jennifer Shelly Byron, Director of Sales was able to arrange for a block of rooms for me at a reduced bereavement rate. Making reservations was a confusing due to the fact everyone was arriving and departing at differnt times! Morgan was able to do this for me over the phone. All of our family that stayed at the Candlewood Suites said the rooms were wonderful and the staff was great. I would reccomend Candlewood Suites to anyone.

We had such a great experience here and would love to stay here again sometime. Staff was so friendly and willing to help with anything. Rooms were very spacious, clean and welcoming. We were very impressed with the amenities offered. We went with another couple who also really enjoyed their stay. We did not want to leave the next morning!

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.
