Thank you for the review!

4 out of 5

Terrible bed.

Worst, hardest, most uncomfortable bed I've slept in. Both of us woke up numerous time throughout the night in pain. Her with her knees, me with both hips. I'm 52 and have no prior problems with my hips. The mattress felt like a thin layer of foam over a bumpy hard surface.
