The bed is of a good quality and all the pieces arrived with no damage, though the boxes were pretty beat up. The main complaint I have about this bed is that the length of this bed from the headboard to the foot board is about 88 inches. This is a problem because Cal King mattresses are only 84 inches long. Therefore, I've got a 3-4 inch gap between the foot of the mattress and the foot board. And, I have a small room, so the extra inches are just excessive and unnecessary. Had I known this would be the case, I wouldn't have purchased this bed. When we were assembling the bed, it was really difficult to connect the side rails with the foot board because there wasn't enough room to maneuver the screwdriver. So we unfortunately had to leave some of the screws sticking out half way. One thing that was a pleasant surprise is that the drawers are already assembled, so all you have to do is connect the drawers to the underside of the bed.
