The Best Bed
Don’t give your guests the oldest, most saggy and sad mattress you have. Buying a cheap mattress doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on quality; That Mattress Place Corpus Christi provides some of the best mattresses at affordable prices. Innerspring mattresses like the Opal Plush and Beautyrest Plush are great options for a guest room starting at $240 and up; any bed with a medium or plush comfort is a good choice to fit a variety of guests.
Comfortable bedding in addition to a cozy mattress can make your guest room a sweet refuge away from home. Bed, Bath & Beyond and Gatherings provide highly rated choices from customers. Always have an extra set of clean bed and bath linens available for your guests, accidents happen!
Beautiful decor and comfortable, practical furniture can help create a retreat similar to a grand hotel your guests will appreciate being able to retreat to at the end of the day. Provide privacy with nice curtains or blinds. A small lamp near the bed in addition to good lighting will allow your guest to read in bed if they choose, as well as get up at night without stumbling around in the dark. A bench can provide a space for luggage or an extra seat. Local shops such as Wildflowers and Rustic and Refined provide a variety of lovely items to enhance your space.
Local Tourist Info
If your guests will be exploring the town without you, they’ll appreciate area maps, brochures on area hot spots, and good eats. Mark special locations on your list of suggestions and place all the items in a basket that you keep in the guest room for easy access. Visit Corpus Christi provides numerous trip and restaurant ideas to include attractions like the Texas State Aquarium, our many beaches, and the USS Lexington. The local Art Walk happens on the first Friday of every month and includes music, vendors, and food trucks.
Finally, make sure to have all the bases covered. Water and snacks are always appreciated so guests can have a quick bite without having to sneak down to the kitchen. Paper, pens or pencils, scissors, tissue, and a hairdryer will come in handy. Write down the WiFi password and any instructions for the TV remote. A phone in the room or charging cables in case your guest happens to forget theirs will be a much-appreciated bonus item. If you don’t have an extra iron and ironing board to offer, be sure to tell your guests where they can find yours.
