Very accommodating

I've never stayed at a Candlewood Suites prior to this stay... we chose this hotel because it is pet-friendly and we were having to travel with our dog. I was concerned that our room would smell like other dogs had been in it (or even worse -- cats!) but room was clean and fresh with no clue that other animals had ever stayed there. Front desk attendant was helpful and friendly; bed was comfy; everything worked; loved the shampoo and soap dispensers (SO much better than those thousands of tiny plastic shampoo bottles that other hotels use). Overall was very pleased and will definitely use this chain again! Price was right, too. Goodbye Hampton -- Hello Candlewood Suites!

We're used to a larger bed, which made us a little uncomfortable. Maybe 2 beds or king size next time. Very nice hotel. Thanks.

This has to be the most overpriced hotel I've ever stayed in...I definitely will not be back....For what I was charged for me and my dog I was left wanting....Terrible hotel.... Spend your money elsewhere....

Horrible experience. First walking in, saw a large cockroach on ac/heat unit. Then 4 year old son found a pair of used men's underwear in corner. The room didn't look clean. Called front desk to complain. He asked if we were sure they weren't our underwear. (2 women and 2 small children staying, they weren't ours). He then said, sorry but our housekeeper is new. That is all he would say about it.

Accommodating, comfortable, convenient, affordable

Nice room with kitchenette that met our needs. Bath was large and clean. e had no problems with allergies as the room was probably the cleanest we have ever stayed in. The staff was very helpful and nice to deal with.

I was in town for a week of continuing education. I wanted a clean, safe, affordable place to stay in close proximity to the workshop. I was very pleased with Candlewood Suites Apex Raleigh and would absolutely stay there again. It was clean, staff was friendly and provided "back road" routes to get to the training, the room had everything I needed for a week long stay. The hotel also has laundry facilities, a workout room, and a 24 hr convenience "store" with food, essential supplies, etc. It met all of my needs for this type of trip!

We enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff were kind and attentative. Room was clean, building had fair ammenities. Stores and resturants were within walking distance. We would stay again.

My brother and I were taking my Mother to visit another brother who lives in the Raleigh area. I selected the Candlewood suites because of proximity to his home and the expectation that a suite would be better than a regular room. I was right. One thing that the hotel has going for it is that it is almost brand new, that can never hurt, so there were no complaints about the condition of the facility. The suite was large and very comfortable. The best feature, I think, was the staff. Everyone was very friendly and dedicated to making our stay as enjoyable as they could. We arrived 2 hours early and requested some additional comforts such as a first floor room, additional roll in bed and early check-in. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and even suggested that we use the handicapped accessible suite because my Mother of 82 years was sight impaired and the extra room could be beneficial to her... it was. The visit could not have been more enjoyable.
