The hotel is located across the street from the Salvation Army and it looked like many of their clients were staying at the hotel too. When we arrived at about 8:PM there were two men in undershirts standing in front of the main door smoking cigarettes and looking a bit disheveled. When we pushed the button to the elevator the door opened and an obviously-drugged-up guy comes out thinking he'd reached the third floor. We were in the lobby. The guy follows us up to the third floor, exits the elevator and when I confronted his suspicious behavior he said he was "just killing some time riding the elevator". I should have left right then.
The room dimensions were about as you'd expect from this property and the furnishings were in good condition. Unfortunately the sheets were stained and the towels were an assortment of shades of white to tan, making the towels appear less-than-clean.... One towel was obviously stained as well. The biggest issue was the large stain on the bed sheets. Unfortunately we didn't find this until morning. ICK!
And..... To top off our all-around bad experience, we requested an extra roll-away bed. I called the front desk at 2:PM to confirm they were holding one for us. The woman assured us they had one still available, and they would put it in our room. When we arrived there was no roll-away in our room and none was available.
I will NOT be staying at the Candlewood Suites, Manassas again.
