The Golden brand is lesser known than some, like Tempurpedic. Still, it is a quality product with many foam and non-foam options that we think you'll love. Choose from standard memory foam, hybrid, and innerspring options while visiting our showroom in Winston-Salem.

Tips on Choosing the Best Bed

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 Winston-Salem, NC. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.

Visit a Showroom

Visit a Showroom

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.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

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 Winston-Salem and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.

Consider Bedroom Size

Consider Bedroom Size

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.

Consider Bedroom Size

Choose a Mattress Material

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.

Need a quick refresher on different mattress materials? Here's a quick overview
Mattress Store Winston-Salem, NC


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.

Memory Foam

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.

Think About Your Back

Think About Your Back

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.

Restaurant named ‘most charming’ in NC is a 2-hour drive from Raleigh

The most charming restaurant in North Carolina, according to Microsoft Start (MSN), is under two hours from Raleigh.

Ryan’s Restaurant, a seafood restaurant and steakhouse in Winston-Salem, was named the state’s most charming restaurant “that will steal your heart.”

General Manager Kelly Seaver credits the restaurant’s location and atmosphere, noting the restaurant’s location was picked out by helicopter by the original owner, choosing a hillside spot in the woods with a rolling creek.

“Ryan’s is located right outside of downtown Winston-Salem, but sitting inside or outside on our deck, you feel many miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city,” Seaver told The N&O.

“Many customers often ask if the restaurant was originally a home, and I can understand why. The dark wood paneling, bricks (taken from the demolition of the historic Robert E. Lee hotel in Winston in 1972) and large chandeliers give a cozy and homey feeling to the restaurant.”

Ryan’s Restaurant has been locally owned and under the same management since 1981, located near the heart of Winston-Salem.

“A visit to Winston-Salem’s Ryan’s Restaurant is a magical experience. It’s a cozy spot set deep in a forest, where you can dine out on the deck looking out over the trees and stream, while inside the comfy sofas and crackling fireplace will keep you snug,” MSN wrote.

“The restaurant serves a tempting menu of mainly seafood and steaks, which diners say are cooked to perfection, but it’s the fairy-tale surroundings that keep people coming back time and time again.”

Ryan’s enforces a dress code, requiring collared shirts or sweaters for men and upscale attire for women, including dresses, skirts, slacks and dress jeans. Athletic wear, hats and shorts are not allowed.

Indoor and outdoor seating can give diners a unique experience whenever they visit the restaurant, offering twilight summer outdoor dining or cozy fireside dinners in the winter.

“Enjoy the panoramic view of large oaks and a rolling stream from the many window-side tables, or the large, starlight deck. Or, savor the intimate atmosphere from a comfortable sofa, and in the winter, the warmth of a crackling fireplace,” the restaurant’s website says.

Seaver recommends requesting the following spots when making a reservation, depending on the time of year you dine:

Winter: Dine in the Board Room, in a cozy spot by the window and the fireplace.

“It’s also a fully decorated Christmas spot. We go all out for Christmas with our decorations,” Seaver said.

Fall and spring: “The deck is a wonderful place to dine. There are only five tables and it’s weather-dependent because it isn’t covered, so I always recommend those as early as possible,” she said.

Summer: “Any table by the window overlooking the greenery and little bridge behind the building is great.”

Ryan’s Restaurant is located at 719 Coliseum Dr. in Winston-Salem. Dinner is served Monday through Saturday, and to-go orders are available Monday through Thursday. To make a reservation, visit or call 336-724-6132.

Lammons/Withrow Advance In Winston-Salem, Reach Sixth Final Of 2023

Nathaniel Lammons and Jackson Withrow downed third seeds Hugo Nys and Jan Zielinski 7-6(4), 6-4 on Friday at the Winston-Salem Open to reach their sixth tour-level final of the season.

The American duo, who upset top seeds Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury in the opening round, have not dropped a set all week in North Carolina, where they saved all three break points faced in the semi-finals. Currently 12th in the Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings, Lammons and Withrow are one win away from their third tour-level title of 2023, having won in Newport and Atlanta.

"I think we are staying very true to our style. We serve big and we play pretty aggressive," Lammons said. "We've played some tough teams and I think that's helped us stay really focussed. Had a pretty hard road so far to the final, played some tough guys who we've lost to before so I think staying true to that aggressive approach has helped us get here."

In Sunday’s final they will next meet second seeds Lloyd Glasspool and Neal Skupski, who rallied from a set down to defeat Marcelo Demoliner and Matwe Middelkoop 6-7(5), 6-2, 10-8.

Glasspool and Skupski are competing together for the first time this season. Skupski and Dutchman Wesley Koolhof, who won Wimbledon, hold the top spot in the Pepperstone ATP Live Doubles Teams Rankings, where Glasspool and Finn Harri Heliovaara are 13th.

AHWFB seeks OK for extra $35M to build Winston-Salem ambulatory surgery center approved a decade ago

Over a decade after initially receiving approval, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist wants to move forward on an ambulatory surgery center on its flagship campus in Winston-Salem.

AHWFB has submitted a cost overrun application with N.C. Department of Health and Human Services’ Certificate of Need division. The Winston-Salem health system is seeking an additional $34.7 million for the surgery center, which it originally estimated would cost $38.7 million when it filed its Certificate of Need application in 2010.

The project will now cost an estimated $78.4 million.

The scope of the project hasn’t changed, with AHWFB proposing construction of a new building with eight operating rooms, one of which will be relocated from the existing medical center. The 72,300-square-foot surgery center is also set to include two procedure rooms, one robotic surgery training center and one simulation OR.

When AHWFB originally filed the application, the project was contested by its Winston-Salem neighbor, Novant Health. Novant appealed the project all the way to the North Carolina Supreme Court, which ultimately gave the green light for the project.

Novant does not plan to submit comments of opposition for the cost overrun application, a spokesperson told TBJ.

A decision is expected from DHHS by Jan, 28, 2024, and a public hearing is required beforehand. If approved, the facility is expected to open in 2025 and will offer otolaryngology, orthopaedics, urology, general surgery and plastic surgery, AHWFB said.

The facility, to be known as Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Outpatient Surgery – Cloverdale, will be in the AHWFB-owned site bordered by Miller Street, Kerensky Street and Cloverdale Avenue.

The health system had sought to restart the project in May 2018 by developing it in existing hospital space but ultimately has returned to developing a new facility, AHWFB acknowledged in the filing.

A local lawyer with health care and antitrust experience, granted anonymity to allow her to speak freely, noted that, even with a legal dispute, a delay of 10 years for a CON project is not normal. AHWFB would have had to get multiple extensions on the project’s timeline and asked DHHS to keep the CON, the lawyer added.

Although AHWFB did not comment on why it has chosen to move forward with the ambulatory surgery center now, it noted in a statement to TBJ that the cost overrun application was filed pursuant to state law. Cost overrun applications are required by DHHS if a project will cost more than 15% above the approved capital expenditure amount.

In its application, AHWFB wrote that the “primary cause of the cost overrun is because of the long project development lead time,” with the biggest price jumps in the costs for construction ($13.6 million) and medical equipment ($17.2 million).

AHWFB will pay for the cost overrun not through loans or bonds but rather through its own cash or cash equivalents.

With the scope of the project not changing, neither has AHWFB’s analysis of need for the surgery center.

“The purpose of the additional operating rooms is to alleviate the demand on the existing operating rooms at [AHWFB], due to the growing surgical faculty at the [Wake Forest University] School of Medicine, and the long trend of increasing surgical cases at [AHWFB],” the health system wrote.

The procedure rooms will also alleviate OR workload by redirecting cases that can be performed in a procedure room as well as meet demand for services being provided in AHWFB’s other procedure rooms in Winston-Salem, High Point and Davie.

The robotic surgery center will be used to help train surgical residents and fellows interested in robotic-assisted and laparoscopic surgery and other minimally invasive procedures. Overall, the facility will help improve education at the medical school and enhance its research initiatives, AHWFB argues.

AHWFB projects that it will serve about 8,300 patients annually in its ORs and about 1,100 annually in its procedure rooms. By the third year of operating, it expects to net $1.2 million in income from the facility, with $4 million in total net revenue and $2.8 million in operating costs.

AHWFB projects a need of 99 full-time or full-time equivalent employees, including nine surgical technicians, 53 registered nurses and 13 certified registered nurse anesthetists.

Back when it was known as North Carolina Baptist Hospital, AHWFB filed the CON application in January 2010, seeking approval under an exemption offered to academic medical centers given their educational mission, as the 2010 State Medical Facilities Plan did not show a need for extra ORs in Forsyth County.

A three-year-long legal dispute began when AHWFB received state approval in June 2010.

Novant filed an appeal, arguing that the decision would substantially harm it beyond the challenges that come from increased competition and that the academic mission could be accomplished using resources and ORs of nearby facilities, including those belonging to Novant.

Novant also said that it would lose $7 million to $11.9 million in annual revenue, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

However, in November 2012, the North Carolina Court of Appeals sided with AHWFB, saying that Novant did not show the additional harm it would suffer. A month later, the court also denied Novant’s request to rehear the case’s arguments.

The case moved to the North Carolina Supreme Court in January 2013, but the dispute ended four months later in April as the court declined to consider Novant’s latest appeal.

Korda's Joy Turns To Despair At Winston-Salem Open

Sebastian Korda’s delight at saving a match point to reach the Winston-Salem semi-finals Thursday has been shattered by his forced withdrawal from the tournament due to an ankle injury.

The 23-year-old American injured his left ankle when he slipped and fell midway through the third set of his 4-6, 6-1, 7-6(7) victory over veteran Frenchman Richard Gasquet in the first quarter-final match of the day.

Although he completed the match, after receiving treatment he announced his withdrawal shortly after 8pm. The withdrawal results in his would-be semi-final opponent, Czech Jiri Lehecka, advancing to the final.

"I have taken the tough decision to pull out. The ankle wasn't getting any better,” Korda said. “Hopefully it gets better in the next couple of days. It was a tough decision but a necessary one. I'll keep my head up and hopefully recover for next week.

"I'm very grateful for having being given a wild card and the chance to play a tonne of matches. It's a great facility with great fans.”

Korda, who captured his only tour-level trophy in Parma in 2021, recovered from failing to serve out the match at 5-4 in the third set. He struck two double faults in the game, but responded in the decisive tie-break, saving one match point at 6/7 before converting on his third opportunity to advance after two hours and 31 minutes.

The 23-year-old, currently No. 30 in the Pepperstone ATP Live Rankings, now leads Gasquet 2-0 in their Lexus ATP Head2Head series.

Lehecka, who will now advance to Saturday’s final, ousted Australian Max Purcell 7-6(4), 6-4. Purcell challenged the Czech by often moving forward, but the 21-year-old Next Gen ATP Finals runner-up stayed steady from the baseline and won 84 per cent of his first-serve points to advance moments before heavy rain in North Carolina.

"Super happy with my win today. After two three-setters, to finally finish in straight sets against a player like Max is always special," Lehecka said. "To [finish] before the rain came is a bonus. I'm very happy with my performance today."

The Best Things To Do In Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Simply called “Winston” by locals, Winston-Salem is a twin city town with deep roots. Old Salem, a Williamsburg-esque town, was founded in 1766 as a settlement for the Moravian Church. Modern-day Moravians can still trace their ancestors to the authentically restored living history community.

Simply called “Winston” by locals, Winston-Salem is a twin city town with deep roots. Old Salem, a Williamsburg-esque town, was founded in 1766 as a settlement for the Moravian Church. Modern-day Moravians can still trace their ancestors to the authentically restored living history community. Winston, Old Salem’s younger sister, was founded just under 100 years later and became a booming town thanks to its location on the North Carolina Railroad and its ties to major tobacco corporations such as R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. By 1889 the post office had combined the two towns solidifying their relationship. Today, Winston-Salem embraces its history while turning toward its future.

Take a Step Back in Time

St. Augustine has the honor of being the oldest American settlement, but Old Salem might be one of the coolest. Where else can you become immersed in early Southern American arts, visit living history, and enjoy traditional desserts within a few blocks? Largely under the radar, Old Salem in Winston-Salem has a rich history. It is the home of the first recorded Fourth of July Celebration and the center of the Moravian community. It has two inns, a few restaurants, a women's-college, and an incredible collection of antiques at the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MEDSA). To this day, people can become permanent residents of Old Salem by owning one of the historic homes in the town. The best way to see Old Salem is with Triad Eco Adventures on a segway. The tour begins in the old village to orient visitors before whipping through the more contemporary parts of town.

Get a Sugar Rush

Winston locals might have differing views about who makes the best sugar cake, but they will agree that biting into this delicacy is a must-do when in town. The centuries-old recipe can be traced back to the Moravians, and specifically to Christian Winkler and his eponymous bakery. The formula is a sweet combination of flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and potatoes. Today, guests can still purchase sugar cake, along with loads of other Moravian treats like spice cookies, from Winkler Bakery in Old Salem. On your way there, pause at the historic marker just a few steps away from the bakery. It was here in 1937 that the world’s first Krispy Kreme opened. For heartier meals, check-out restaurants such as Mozelle’s for al fresco dining, James Beard-nominated Sweet Potatoes Restaurant for soul food, or The Powder Room for a whimsical start to the day.

Meet a Leading Lady

Reynolda is one of Winston-Salem’s glorious gems. It is comprised of a sprawling estate, gardens, museum, and retail district, and it all began in 1917 thanks to visionary Katharine Smith Reynolds, wife of tobacco king R. J. Reynolds. Katharine’s vision was to create a self-sustaining farm complete with lush community gardens. Today, visitors can explore the house and corresponding art museum as well as the gardens and outbuildings, many of which have been repurposed into retail spaces. Theodore’s is a quaint restaurant, bar, and market. Walking into the space is like stepping from North Carolina right into a Parisienne delicatessen. Find Dough-Joe’s coffee and doughnuts downstairs where pastries and coffee are both served fresh and warm.

Enjoy Arts and Culture

Winston-Salem is home to six colleges and universities, most notably Wake Forest University, where Maya Angelou once taught poetry and the ACC’s Demon Deacons play. Take a spin through the college which moved from the Raleigh area to Winston-Salem in 1956. Later, belly-up to a taproom table at Incendiary Brewing Company located in the original coal pit of the historic power plant for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. If wine is more your style, there are over 45 local wineries in the greater Winston-Salem area. Dubbed the city of arts and innovation, there are also more than 30 art galleries as well as 24 performing art complexes and 15 museums. After a day of tooling around town, rest your head at the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, a renovated office building turned contemporary hotel. Art Deco details such as gold leaf, rich marble, and burnished brass give the hotel a dash of luxurious charm. Look closely, and you’ll see it resembles another famous architectural wonder, New York City’s Empire State Building.
