If you’re on the hunt for the best mattresses for guest rooms, you’ve come to the right place. When most people are shopping for their guest room, their first thought is to find a cheap mattress that will simply “get the job done,” because hey, it beats an air mattress or the couch, right? Not really. 

Having your guests sleep on a low-quality mattress can result in a bad night’s sleep, leading to fatigue and even aches and pains the next morning. Everyone wants their home to be an inviting and comfortable space, so why would you let your guests sleep on a bed that lowers their sleep quality? In our expert opinion, nothing says Southern hospitality like a comfortable guest room mattress. 

Don’t let your in-laws or your friends from out of town sleep on a dingy mattress. Instead, here are some of our expert recommendations for the best mattresses for guest rooms.

How do I choose a guest mattress?

When choosing a mattress for your guest room, you should focus on three major factors: size, firmness level, and type

What size mattress should I get for my guest room?

Because every home is different, whatever mattress size you choose for your home will depend on the size of your guest room. The most standard mattress size for a guest room is a queen bed as it can comfortably fit one or two sleepers, making it the smartest choice for your guests. If you have more space at your disposal, a king-size bed is sure to be a treat for any guest. 

If your guest room has specific dimensions that won’t accommodate a standard-size mattress, ask our experts about getting a custom mattress made in any shape or size to fit your space perfectly.

What firmness level is best for a guest room mattress?

Here at Texas Mattress Makers, we believe that mattresses should not be tailored to the masses — however, when it comes to choosing a firmness level for a guest room mattress, you do have to think about which comfort level could please the most people.

We recommend getting a mattress that is in the medium comfort category. We carry three levels of medium mattresses: 

  • Medium-soft combines cloud-like softness with additional support for reduced sinkage and improved pressure point relief.
  • Medium offers a balanced sleep experience, balancing softer cushioning with dense, sturdy support.
  • Medium-firm are responsive to pressure while still providing stable, even surfaces that resist sinking.

Any of these medium comfort options can provide a wide variety of guests with a comfortable yet supportive sleeping surface. However, if you tend to have recurring guests stay in your home, understanding their needs can also help make your decision.

What type of mattress should I get for a guest room? 

First, here is a type of mattress that you should never buy: a bed in a box. As mentioned previously, many homeowners default to purchasing a cheap mattress for their guest bedroom, and the most commonly purchased cheap mattresses are beds in a box. A bed in a box is a one-size-fits-all mattress model that claims to be “just as good as a regular mattress” but actually has a shorter life span. Trust us, just don’t do it. You’re way better off finding a quality mattress for your guest room with us.

The key to finding the perfect mattress for guests is choosing a mattress that promotes universal comfort — meaning any guest can sleep comfortably regardless of their preferences. So, how do you find such a mattress? This is where we, the experts, come in with our recommendations.
