Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shenandoah Explorers Queen bed at Candlewood is not Queen Bed in the world
At first it appeared to be a lovely suite with separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and living area. After enjoying a day exploring the area and cooking steaks on the outdoor grill, we got ready for bed. The first thing we noticed was that the bed was only slightly larger that the full size bed we have in our guest room at home. After a lengthy discussion with the staff we were informed that this is a queen size bed at Candlewood Suites. Now it is time to go to sleep. Our friend opens the sofa bed, and there are no sheets, blankets and pillows. We had to go down to get them because there was no one available to bring them up. The sofa bed mattress was not comfortable, but fortunately we brought a mattress topper. Finally the sofabed is made and everyone is going to sleep. The a/c and heating system is right next to the sofa bed. The bedroom is stuffy so we lower the temperature but the air does not flow through a vent in the wall, so we open the window and the door. Our guest is bundled up because she is freezing and we are sweating. Needless to say it was not a comfortable bedroom to sleep in. Fortunately when the day manager arrived the next morning he gave us another room with two (queen?) beds and allowed our friend to stay in the suite. The room with two queen beds was comfortable, but our friend who stayed in the suite and slept in the bedroom experienced the same thing we did the night before. They really need to disclose that when they advertise a queen bed, it is not actually a queen size bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Johnny1650 Professional, friendly staff; comfortable room; full-size refrigerator.
My wife and I travel between Florida, Virginia, New jersey, new York and Pennsylvania. We always try and book a room at Candlewood Suites because of the spacious, comfortable rooms, full-size refrigerator, well stocked kitchen and the fact that this chain of hotels is pet friendly.
I was shocked when we checked in and found that the room rate had jumped 300 percent due to Parents Weekend at James Madison University. This phenomenal room rate increase was not disclosed at the time I booked the room months ago. That increase should definitely have been disclosed at the time I booked the room.

I stayed at this property for just one night, but the staff and the room was extremely nice! Kitchen, store, lending locker and more available to all guests. I strongly recommend this property to anyone coming to harrisonburg. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay.
