There's much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There's plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in Americus, GA. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.
This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it's important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.
Here's a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn't mean it's going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in Americus and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.
Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed - enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.
This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back - innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend's and family's opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won't necessarily work for you.
Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night's sleep.
This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.
First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.
If you have a bad back, it's crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.
You read that right! Sleep King is the first choice for quality beds in Americus, but we also have a huge selection of furniture for your home. If you're looking for a one-stop-shop for mattresses and furniture alike, you have come to the right place. If you're shopping for a new mattress at the best price possible, why not throw in a bedroom suite at an amazing price too?

PLAINS, Ga. — The people of Plains, Jimmy Carter’s hometown, are sharing their favorite stories about him.
There is one famous place down the road that’s even more famous because of him.

Channel 2′s Berndt Petersen was live in the City of Americus at the Windsor Hotel. Part of the Victorian hotel was named in Carter’s honor.
You know how lots of places are famous because George Washington slept there? Well, just down the road from Plains, Jimmy Carter slept “here.”
Steve Short with the Americus Welcome Center calls it the icon of downtown Americus.
“You can Google Americus, Georgia and the first images you see are the Windsor Hotel,” said Short.
He takes visitors on tours of what looks like a Victorian palace built in 1892 when Americus was the eighth largest city in the state.
The famous and the infamous have stayed here as well.
“They say that Al Capone has stayed there. He had his own private security guard at the foot of the stairs leading up to the suite back in the day,” said Short.
In this day, the Windsor is known for the beloved guests who were here one night in Nov. 2002. Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter stayed in what is known as the presidential suite.
It’s so special, Channel 2 was not allowed inside the suite unless we booked it, but images from the hotels website show what it looks like.
“The story goes that President and Mrs. Carter had never spent the night at the Windsor Hotel. The previous owner, Mr. Patel, wanted them to spend the night so he could officially say the Carters had stayed at the Windsor. After they did, once President and Mrs. Carter stayed there, they named it the Carter Presidential Suite,” said Short.
If you’d like to stay in the Carter Presidential Suite—tonight—you can. You can book the room for $293.

From Staff Reports
AMERICUS – South Georgia Technical College Lady Jets head coach James Frey was selected as the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) Division 1 women’s basketball Coach of the Year for 2022 – 2023 and sophomore forward Alexia Dizeko earned the GCAA Player of the Year honors. The Lady Jets ended the 2022 -2023 regular season as the top ranked National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division 1 women’s team.
Sophomore guard Luana Leite was named as the GCAA Defensive Player of the Year. Dizeko and sophomore Fanta Gassama were listed as first team GCAA players and Luana Leite was a second team All-GCAA player.
This was the seventh time in 11 years that SGTC Lady Jets head coach James Frey had earned the GCAA Coach of the Year honors. The Lady Jets finished the regular season with an unbeaten 15 – 0 conference record and 29 – 1 overall record. They defeated Albany Tech and East Georgia State College in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XVII Tournament to move to 31 – 1. Their only loss this season was to nationally ranked Gulf Coast in their opening game of the season.
Frey has put together 300 wins as a head coach at SGTC and his current record is now 304 – 60 overall. He has guided the Lady Jets to the NJCAA national tournament in nine of the 11 years he has served as head coach. This season will be the seventh straight year that the Lady Jets have earned the right to participate in the national tournament and the 10th overall since the program began in 2004.
Frey and the Lady Jets have been in the number one spot in the NJCAA Division I National Rankings for the past seven weeks and held on to the top spot in the final NJCAA regular season poll. They have put together 31 consecutive wins. This is the first time South Georgia Technical College has had a team ranked number one in men’s or women’s sports. The Lady Jets are hoping to maintain that top ranking going into the NJCAA National Tournament March 22nd – 27th in Lubbock, Texas.
This was the third time at SGTC that Frey guided the Lady Jets to an undefeated conference record. The Lady Jets were 18 – 0 in 2018 -2019, 17 – 0 in 2019 – 2020, and 15 – 0 in the 2022 – 2023. Frey is only the second coach in the 19-year history of the women’s program at SGTC. Brandon Harrell, current women’s basketball coach at Georgia Highlands began the program in 2004 – 2005. He left to start the program at Georgia Highlands in 2012.
The Lady Jets are averaging 72.6 points per game this season behind the outstanding play of Alexia Dizeko, Luana Leite, and Fanta Gassama and the other 10 members of the top-ranked Lady Jets.
Alexia Dizeko was the GCAA Freshman of the Year and first team All-GCAA player last season. She was also an NJCAA and WBCA second team All-American her first season at SGTC. This season, she earned the Player of the Year honors.
The 5’ 11” forward from Sion, Switzerland, is averaging 16.6 points per game. She is hitting 54.5% of her attempted shots from the field and 79.6 percent of her free throw shots. She is also a 32.1% shooter from the three-point line.
Sophomore Luana Leite, 5’ 7” from Sao Paola, Brazil, earned the GCAA Defensive Player of the Year award. She also averages 11.3 points per game. Fanta Gassama was the other SGTC Player recognized. The 6’ 1” center from Mataro, Spain, is the second leading scorer for the Lady Jets with 13.2 points per game. She is also the leading rebounder pulling down an average of 13.4 each game.
Other players recognized by the GCAA included: Co-Freshmen of the Year, D’Myra Griffin of East Georgia State College and Jordan Eafford of Andrew College. Torrion Starks of East Georgia, Mariah Spain of Albany Tech and Cheyenne Holloman of Georgia Highlands joined SGTC’s Dizeko and Gassama on the GCAA first team. SGTC’s Luana Leite, East Georgia Zuriyah Davis, Andrew’s Ja’mya Johnson, Albany Tech’s Dsais Wyatt and Georgia Highland’s Madiala Disbate were the second team All-GCAA players.

AMERICUS, Ga. (WALB) - Wednesday marks 16 years since a deadly EF-3 tornado ripped through Americus and destroyed their medical center.
That doesn’t erase the fact people have bad memories from the day of the tornado.
“Whenever the wind picks up… yeah I still get nervous,” Manger of Clinic Drug Store, Stephen Pinnell said.
His doors got blown in. He said that it looked like a bomb went off with all of the trees and power lines down. His near-century-old business has recovered since, but not everywhere has. Nothing much has changed to the property after the hospital was demolished in the weeks after the storms.
There has been development recently in the area. A developer bought the hospital property a few years ago, according to QPublic. There is now a Chick-Fil-A in an adjacent lot. A different owner is building a Papa John’s across the street.
EMA Director Nigel Poole says these are very promising developments for the town.
“There’s room for more activity that I know our county chamber it’s working really hard to get people here,” Poole said.
Poole was a part of the Red Cross response. He and EMS services saved many lives that day and the weeks following.
Andrea Wilson was on the hospital staff. She was alert that day. Then they heard about storms south of Plains.
“So we were kind of alert preparing to potentially have damage to our community. But certainly didn’t expect it to hit the facility,” Wilson said.
Lynwood McClung was also part of the EMS response. He said that he drove home thinking the worst was past them. He came back after the tornado hit.
“They did a good job protecting visitors in the building, at the time, by moving them out of the way of windows,” McClung said.
The hospital was prepared for the storm because they did routine drills. Drills they still do today. What has changed since then is an internal system that alerts hospital staff.
The town had tornado sirens at the time. Now they don’t. Poole told WALB about what life-saving technology the town has as they wait for new ones.
“A positive that came about from the tornadoes that came through was the mass notification system that Sumter County arises. We use the Code Red system that allows us to get almost instantaneous messages to all of our citizens in Sumter County. It specializes to where the people are in town,” Poole said.

Sumter County Medical is now owned by Phoebe Health Systems. The hospital was rebuilt on the south side of town. WALB has been told they’re in a much better space now.
“At our new campus, we have a walking trail. We had the ability to expand our hospital with 76 beds and 183,000 square feet,” Community Relations for Phoebe Sumter, Marcus Johnson said.
Johnson adds that the hospital now focuses on preventative care rather than treatment.

AMERICUS – After suffering a hard-fought 2-1 loss at Warner Robins on Friday, a game in which Sumter County starters Creighton Myers and Ary Flores were issued red cards, the Sumter County High School boys’ soccer team came into their Region 1-AA match against Dodge County (DC) on Monday hoping to end their three-game losing streak and stay in the hunt for one of the top four spots that will represent Region 1-AA in the GHSA Class AA state playoffs.

AMERICUS – After suffering a hard-fought 2-1 loss at Warner Robins on Friday, a game in which Sumter County starters Creighton Myers and Ary Flores were issued red cards, the Sumter County High School boys’ soccer team came into their Region 1-AA match against Dodge County (DC) on Monday hoping to end their three-game losing streak and stay in the hunt for one of the top four spots that will represent Region 1-AA in the GHSA Class AA state playoffs. However, defensive breakdowns in the midfield and on the back line led to a six-goal barrage by the Indians and DC would eventually go on to defeat the Panthers 6-2 on the pitch at Alton Shell Stadium.
The loss drops SCHS to 6-5 overall and 2-3 in the Region 1-AA standings. The Panthers are currently tied for third place in the region with Cook High School at 2-3. The Panthers will play Cook on Tuesday, March 7, at 7 p.m. in Adel, GA.
“It’s been challenging for us this year with people being hurt,” SCHS Head Coach Michael Pepito said. “With our two best players out, it kind of showed where the starters are versus everybody else. We were out stepped today. We weren’t moving the ball like we should. It seems like if other teams just put a really big hustle in, it challenges us so much, so that’s something that we’re going to have to fix when we can.”
Though he did not make excuses for his team’s performance, Pepito went on to say that having sets of back-to-back games makes it difficult to get in a few days of good, solid training and it is something that he and his club needs to figure out, considering that they have several back-to-back games during the season.
Things began ominously for the Panthers 38 seconds into the match, as DC’s Aggrey Summey scored the first of his two goals of the match. However, in the 17th minute, the Panthers tied the game when Jose Perez delivered a free kick into the box from about 40 yards out. Leo Diaz was able to get his foot on it amongst the DC defenders and slotted it into the net.
However, with 5:07 to go before halftime, the Panthers gave up a goal when Rene Mendieta scored to give the Indians a 2-1 lead. Not long thereafter, Summey scored his second goal of the match to give DC a 3-1 lead and Jorge Rodriguez would add to the Indians’ lead with a goal. The Panthers were able to respond when Diaz scored his second goal of the match on a free kick from about 40 yards out, but DC responded with two more goals from Erick Avalos and Carlos Cruz to salt away its 6-2 victory.
The Panthers will not have long to think about this result, as they will travel down to Adel, GA on Tuesday, March 7, to take on the Cook Yellow Jackets as part of another back-to-back. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
