During a recent phone call with her daughter, OP was informed that they had no room for her to use during her upcoming visits

All three kids insisted on having their own rooms. Her daughter said, OP can either stay at a hotel or she could sleep on a mattress.
OP's daughter said it wouldn't be fair to ask her eldest, who is 6 years old, to sleep on a mattress in his own room.
OP asked her daughter if she would pay for OP's hotel room if she couldn't accommodate her in the house
Her daughter said no and asked OP to adapt to the changes. OP reminded her daughter that she technically still owns the house and that she was bound by an agreement to accommodate OP during these visits.
Redditors appalled that OP's daughter even considered making her sleep on the floor when her two younger kids can share a bed with no issues
Her kids are small enough to share a bed for two days. Her youngest can even sleep with the parents in the main bedroom.
I doubt if OP's grandkids would even mind camping in the living room or sharing one bedroom for a few days
OP was right to remind her of the contract she signed
She agreed to host OP twice a year for three days. Or, like OP suggested, she can pay for OP's hotel room.
OP brought up the contract as a last resort. Her daughter was trying to break their agreement, so OP had to remind her of the terms.
OP literally helped them out when they needed it most. What she asked for in return is minimal at best when she could have sold her house to anyone else for a profit.
OP's situation is a good reminded that for some families, it's a terrible idea to mix business with relationships
OP didn't post any update how their issue was resolved
Redditors voted that she wasn't the a**hole. They couldn't wrap their heads around the daughter's treatment of OP.
OP didn't have to sell her house to her daughter. She would have had a buyer for her house if she wanted to make a profit.
OP did what she did to help her daughter. The generous terms in their contract prove that — there has to be a resolution to their disagreement without it permanently damaging their relationship.
