Anyone else’s parents obsessed with King size beds? It’s a big ordeal that our resort doesn’t have king size beds in their one bedrooms, and both sets of parents “need” king size beds. How about sleeping a little closer?
Ok, rant done…

Well, I’m not a parent, but when the hubs and I travel, we always prefer king sized beds, too! I’m a troubled sleeper, and he’s loud at night and moves around a lot. It keeps me up a LOT. So when we travel, we adore the luxury of king-sized beds 🙂
We also plan on buying one when we get a house. It’s like, going to be our first purchase. Living in a city, bedrooms here aren’t big enough for a king-sized bed, and we can’t wait to get one someday.

I think some people do kind of “need” king sized beds due to their size (if they’re overweight) and/or fitful sleepers. Beyond that though, if you’re used to always sleeping in one size, it can be really hard to go down a size comfortably.
Nevertheless, for 1 or 2 nights, I think everyone should just suck it up and leave you alone 🙂

Haha I’m not sure, but I definitely would sing the praises of king sized beds any day of the week. We just got one as an early wedding gift from my in-laws and LOVE it! I have trouble sleeping and we both like to sprawl out, so its much more comfortable for us! We can snuggle and sleep close if we want to, but have plenty of room to spread out if we want. I just hope our next place has a big enough master bedroom to accommodate it…our current townhome has a ridiculously huge room.

Wow- everyone loves their king size beds. Looks like I am out numbered. Maybe years of apartment living has skewed my views on furniture size.

I’m also with your parents there… Love the king size bed. My husband is a very light sleeper and I move around quite a bit when I sleep. He had me buy a king size bed back when we were dating, and had one at his place, too.

My only regret about my single days is not buying a King instead of a Queen. Okay fine, I have more regrets about my single days but seriously I do really regret it. I tried to talk my single friend into getting a King and she wouldn’t listen, wouldn’t listen, “Oh, I don’t need one it’s so wasteful, blah blah” and now she’s in a serious relationship with a very tall man and needs to get a King.
So I’m with your parents, I actually don’t consider hotels that don’t have a King bed because if I’m PAYing to stay somewhere it had better be nicer than my normal sleeping situation. But if I were attending a wedding at a resort with only Queen beds I would never complain to the bride.

Haha, FI and I sleep on a queen and we are fine with that. Now my parents claim that a king size bed is a key to happy marriage 🙂

Oh I totally need a king size….I need my space! Most hotel bed suck anyway so you should at least find one that has enough space so you’re some what comfortable.

I’m probably in the minority here too. We live in the city and only have a full/double bed. That’s all I’ve ever slept in. A queen would be a major upgrade. I wouldn’t get upset if a hotel didn’t have a king size bed.

Well, I’m in a couple that’s obsessed with King Beds…well, Cal King actually. But my DH is 6’6″ so sleeping in anything smaller can be a bit awkward and uncomfortable. lol
As for older parents, if they’ve been married for a long time, they’re probably very used to sleeping habits. And the idea of shelling out a ton of money at a resort that they won’t sleep very good at? Yeah, I can see their side of things. lol

I looove a king sized bed.
Ours is a queen, but a king would be too big for our townhouse bedroom with the nightstands on each side.
