Pay for a king size bed, you expect a king size bed - not two singles pushed together. Might be able to get away with it if the single beds are new or pillow topped but that ridge in the middle should not be felt. Hallway carpets could use a massive shampoo or reolacement.

We were staying as a treat for our 45th wedding anniversary. We mentioned this to the lovely young man who checked us in. A little while later we were presented with some champagne and deserts and a congratulatory note. Very nice!
