Ben's review is very surprising. The bed is a standard full size bed. It is unfortunate that Ben did not let us know about the batteries and the missing bread knife, would have been happy to take care of both issues. Sorry about the construction, that is out of our control and from what we can tell, since we are in the neighborhood often, Ben seems to have been there during the worst time. There have been many visitors that have been happy staying for weeks and even months, so we have to disagree that this unit is only fine for short stays.
