The number one thing you should not skip checking before you check into a hotel room is THE BEDS. When you look up hotels and comb through the review, see if you can search reviews to filter for a specific result. You can do this with Google Reviews, for example.
If a bed is uncomfortable to the point of not being able to sleep, it won’t matter how great the views or the amenities are. You won’t want to stay there. The bed can make or break your stay. When a hotel hits the sweet spot of comfortable beds, great interior and exterior, location, service, everything that you are looking for, you will definitely love to stay a while. Don’t check into a hotel room without checking for bed comfortableness. Just do a quick search for “bed,” you won’t want to find out when you get there.
