You did indeed book a queen room. In error you were shown to an "overflow" room usually used when a family books and its for a child. I certainly would have corrected this immediately if you would have brought it to my attention. You did book the Harrison Room and the names of the rooms have signs on the doors. Mattresses are replaced every 90 days. Pillow cases and liners are laundered after every guest departs. Once again, your unfortunate experience could have been immediately resolved.
