Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sassafrass Good Bed Good Price
The bed arrived quite timely and in good condition. I think that the construction is a bit lighter weight than I expected, but is still strong enough, and for the price, it can't be beat. I'm disappointed to find that there is in fact wood veneer used in some places (only on the rails). When the advertisement called it solid wood, I didn't expect to see veneers used, certainly not in a visible place. Although it does still look nice and a bed skirt covers it nicely. Both the head and foot boards are solid pine. Love the fact that the pine comes from sustainably farmed trees. That was a surprise "bonus".

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bruceyrock The straight scoop
OK-one thing I don't like about reviews is that people will downgrade over some insignificant detail, like, I LOVED it But, they delivered it to me on a Tuesday.
Last Christmas, HDC was running specials every day, and they ran a deal that was too good to pass up, so I ordered it. It took 4 months to show up, which seemed a little excessive, I don't know if things went better than expected for HDC or what. When I got the bed, I had to assemble it, which I was aware of, but, it was harder to assemble than what they said. Bottom .line- a beautiful bed, well worth the money

a very nice bed, particularly for its price. Assembly wasn't at all difficult, though I did use the 'hex' attachment on my drill to expedite

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WorcesterSquare Looks Great, Quality OK
I love the look of this bed and I think it will hold up nicely for a few years to come. The wood is nice and the color is beautiful. HOWEVER the slats that support the mattress were not predrilled which makes assembly tricky AND the holes in the footboard that were predrilled were drilled on the wrong side so they show! Also the support wood on the bottom of the headboard is simply woodglued on and came to me falling off... the workmanship is almost laughable but I won't return cause I think it was a good deal and does look nice after I put it together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MarshB Hawthorne Bed
DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM!!! The bed is so poorly made that it arrived with the legs separated from the head board and foot board. The side rails (which are 2 pieces of wood glued together) also separated lengthwise, so they are unable to hold up the weight of the mattress. The shipping boxes are so flimsy that the bed was easily damaged in transport. I can say nothing good about this purchase - the bed looks very sturdy in the photos, but is mainly inch-thick pine boards.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by o2bndair looks ok, but some flimsy parts
the finish is ok, but quite red- more red than the picture (dark cherry).
The main complaint I have is with the two vertical wooden "feet" that are supposed to support the middle of the bed. They are held in place with two screws and appeared very flimsy when I assembled the bed. Sure enough, both wood pieces came off of the bed after one week. My advice is to use the pieces to measure two pieces of 4x4 use the 4x4 pieces as the feet, and then throw away the two pieces that came with the bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChiroMary Exceeded expectations!
I had been looking at the Hawthorne bed for some time but was hesitant to purchase without seeing it. I had purchased a similar looking bed through a local furniture store and returned it immediately because it was so wobbly and poorly made. I finally decided to buy the Hawthorne bed. I am totally impressed with how sturdy this bed is. There were no flaws in the finish and it was easy to put together. I know that I will have this bed for many years to come, which is an amazing deal for the price.
