What kind of mattress is best for hotels and motels? In this blog post we are going to discuss which is best, and if you can’t afford the best, then which is second and so forth.
Always avoid buying bed-frames and stick with box bedframes. The number one reason for using a box frame is because nearly everyone upon entering a hotel / guest room looks under the bed. If it’s a bed-frame, then there is actually a chance of something being underneath. If it’s just a box frame, then your guests at the very least don’t see anything dirty. But most likely, they will feel better about not seeing anything dirty.
Another advantage of the box frame is the cleaning staff will not have to clean under the bed, and that is a huge time saver, plus I’m sure the cleaning staff will appreciate your choice. Make sure the bed frame does not protrude or stick out beyond the mattress. This could create a dangerous situation of people hurting their toes and feet.
If you can’t get a box frame, or you have already purchased your beds, then getting high quality dust ruffles for each bed is necessary. Though, you will still have to have your cleaning staff clean under the bed, with dust ruffles you will not have to worry as much about a mess under the bed.
The next important thing about mattresses is the mattress. You want your guests to fall in love with the bed. If they can’t get any sleep, or even have trouble sleeping, then everything else has gone to waste.
If you can’t afford high quality mattresses new, then it is reasonable (and recommended) to buy used mattresses from hotel furniture surplus stores, or hotel liquidations. You can easily find mattresses that are a steal from four or five-star hotels. As the mattress and box spring work together to create better sleep you want to make sure you purchase both pieces, not doing so will void the warranty on the mattress.
By following these two pieces of advice, then you are sure to have happy customers who leave wonderful reviews.
