The tents 7 foot by 5-foot footprint should sleep to comfortably, but you may want to consider going up to a Eureka Tetragon 7, a 7 foot by 7 foot 3 person tent if you like to spread out and have more room as we do. The four foot ceiling height is also sufficient for everything except standing up in.

Other Reviews-What Owners and Others Have Said About The Eureka Tetragon 5 Tent
When researching the Eureka Tetragon 5 Tent Adventure Two-Person Tent we found a lot of really good reviews and commentary by current owners of this tent. The overall reviews of Eureka tent products that we com across are typically good, with a few negatives as with any other product. Eureka makes a full line of tents for the military forces so you know that they have to make a good product. The typical complaints were that the zippers malfunctioned, or that they had a small leak somewhere but nothing more than that. The worst complaint that we came across was a complaint that the windows in the side of the tent didn’t have zippers, just ties and that there was a possibility for dirt or sand to be blown in, although we haven’t read of any complaints where this actually happened.
We think that this is a very good tent for the money, from a dependable company that has been doing this sort of thing for a long time. The Eureka Tetagron line goes up to a 12 foot by 10 foot 8 person tent for families just in case you need something much bigger.
Bottom line is that the Eureka Tetragon 5 tent should be on your list of possibilities if you are looking at buying a two-man tent.
