Clean & good location


September 23, 2021


This was our first stay at a "suites" style facility for more than one night. I was attracted by the room rate. We didn't plan on using the kitchen, so that was of no benefit. The room was more spacious than typical motel rooms, and our room was clean. Comfortable bed and chairs, along with good sized TV. I just wasn't prepared for the sign in the bathroom that stated housekeeping service was once every 7 days. We were only staying 3 nights. I'm accustomed to daily room service and fresh towels placed in the bathroom. They did provide a laundry basket to lug towels down to the desk in exchange for fresh towels. The halls were quiet even though the place was booked. I wish motels provided luggage racks like in the "old days". Leaving a suitcase on the floor for 3 days is unappealing. Guests needed their room key to get in the main lobby door after 11 PM, so there was a level of security that prevented anyone from just strolling in. Overall, an OK place.

Weekend Stay for UNC Football Game


September 22, 2021


Great weekend getaway w/my wife for a UNC football game and visit with our daughter. Candlewood was a convenient location being only a 10-15 drive away from heavier congestion. We were greeted by a friendly front desk staff and the room was very clean - we appreciate both! The unexpected "welcome" with name on the lobby sign was an added personal touch I normally would expect to see at the Ritz or Omni so; I appreciated that very much. We'll be staying at Candlewood, Lord willing, the next weekend trip we take down to UNC. Thank you.

Lovely Staff Horrible Rooms


September 22, 2021

Sadly we expected more from and IHG property. Although the staff were friendly and apologetic, our room did not meet the IHG Cleanliness Standard. We checked into a room with Black Mold all over the ceiling in our bathroom. Luckily the property manager was on duty. He was able to change our room. The new room had less issues and we decided to make the best of an uncomfortable situation. It was late and my family were tired from our five hour drive. Emotionally our discomfort with the room added to the reason we were in town. Stress plus grief does not make for a good mix. As a parent my priority is to my child and husband, the exposure to Black Mold has left my family uneasy with this Candlewood Suites. Update: I’ve tried to upload photos over 10 times at no success. There’s an error on the site.
