by KDubya Expandable Crib Wonderful, but bed rails are poor quality material
We purchased the Monterey expandable crib set for my son, and loved the crib. It's been tough and beautiful at the same time, but then we expanded the crib to the full size bed using the available bed rails. They both split and one actually resulted in the bed crashing to the floor. Not sure if any other options are available, we re-ordered (and just hope it wasn't a totally waste of money buying the same product). Once you own the crib, what do you do? Called the manufacturer, and the woman I spoke with wasn't pleasant and said "one year warranty - sorry"... well, we purchased them at the same time as the crib, so the warranty expired before they were ever out of the box. I feared they would discontinue this set (as often happens), so thought I was being wise to order at the same time as the crib. Not so. I'm uploading a picture, as well... appears to not be solid wood, which I would expect for a support. Disappointed, to say the least.

by midwestmom123 Bed Rail Defected- No Response from Bedford Baby
While reading to my 3 year old in her bed last week one of the bed rails collapsed to the floor. I have emailed Bedford Baby three times and have yet to hear from them. I would not recommend buying this product if the company will not stand by their product or address defects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherry79 Rails are great!
I purchased the Monterey crib over 5 years ago and did not originally purchase the bed rails when we converted it to a full size bed over 2 years ago. I was tired of the headboard not being attached to the mattress frame and we needed more under bed storage space. I finally decided to spend the money to purchase the rails and I am so glad I did. I only wish I had purchased them originally.
The bed now looks so much nicer and there is more storage underneath for storing toys for my son. It also comes with plenty of bed slats so it is sturdy and safe. I didn't realize a box spring isn't needed since it makes the bed way too tall. Again, I wish I had ordered these originally so I didn't have to worry about disposing of a useless box spring and mattress frame.
I highly recommend ordering the bed rails if you plan to convert this crib to a full size bed.

We bought these to fit my son's crib since his has been discontinued. Thankful they fit perfect, color was a close match also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom4life Love this bed !!
When we first purchased this bed 4 years ago I was very surprised how solid it was. And now getting the conversion rails I feel the same way. The head and foot board do not move at all. Trust me I tried lol. The slats are thick and they all screw into the side rails. Super easy to put together also. I would highly recommend this product :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sterk40 Just what I needed
Looks great, fast shipping and easy to install. I had tried to order this same product form other locations, and was sent the wrong color and a different brand. No such problem here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JezebelM Great product
Ordered this on a Friday and recieved it by Tuesday, very quick delivery! The quality of the rails are very good and durable. It came with lots of slats for the mattress to rest on. We put a box spring as well as mattress, but this makes bed high so if your worried about the little one falling out, I would stick with just the mattress. The coversion rails were very easy to change the toddler bed into a real bed. Plenty of room under bed too for storage, as the rails make the bed higher than the toddler/crib was. I loved the crib and was great quality as well as the matching bedroom furniture so I was expecting nothing less when I got the conversion rails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvDecoratin overall: pleased and what I expected
We purchased the Monterey crib in Cherry almost 4 years ago and was relieved that all items in this set are still available and matched perfectly. I ordered on a Thursday and received the rails on the next Monday. The rails also came with enough slats so that you don't even have to use box springs. However, I had already purchased the box springs with my mattress so I used them. Just know that it makes the mattress very high off the floor. I'm going to need to purchase a guard rail so my 3 1/2 year old is safe way up there.
