Twin/full beds in a guest room?

I have a fairly large guest room 181"X95X161X74 with the normal size closet. The window is on the 95" wall. I often have 2 males or 2 females as guests and would like to do separate beds. Twins look so small but doubles seem to big. Need some ideas please.

You mentioned 4 measurements so I am not sure what are the dimensions of your guest room. Can you clarify?
A floor plan would help to situate the window on your 95 in. wall and the door.

Are you looking at 39" x 75" (80" extra long) single mattresses? There are 36"x75" twin mattresses which are small.

Two twin beds provide more flexibility when guests stay over.

If you have the room, as a guest, I'd prefer a double rather than a twin. Twins just don't fit adults.

If I suppose the room is 181 in. x 95 in. it means that your room 17,195 square in. One double bed (54 x 75) used 4050 square in. If you have 2 double beds, it would occupy 8,100 square in. That represents almost half of the room you have in the space. This is without counting space for the door to swing and a night table and maybe a dresser. I would go for 2 twin beds.

I, too, do not understand the dimensions unless your room is a very unusual shape. But I would definitely go with the two twin beds which I certainly consider to be big enough for one person each. You could place a desk beside each one to act as night stand and desk space. Or you could devote some space to a seating area with a TV wall mounted above a console.
