It is a common belief in fandom that Dean almost always takes the bed closest to the door because of his need to protect Sammy. This page will document what happens in the show. Once all episodes have been cataloged, a tally will be given at the bottom of the page. The episode summaries will give a brief description of the sleeping arrangements. If the boys don't have a motel room, it will be listed as NRS ("No Room Shown"). If a room is shown but no indication is given, then it will be listed as "unclear."

At Bobby's house, where the boys often stayed they were seen once sleeping in the living room, but it's unclear whether they ever stayed in any of the bedrooms. At Rufus's Cabin there was a bunk bed, and a single camp bed. All were equidistant from the door. In the Men of Letters Bunker sam and Dean have their own rooms. It's unclear if either is closer to the door.
