I just found your question while looking for answers on this one. Seems it's a reasonably common bug, from what I've read.
Several ways to fix it:
1. Close your game without saving & try again. Obviously you'll lose your progress since last save.
2. (I haven't tried this one) Use the "moveObjects" cheat to sell the offending bed. APPARENTLY your sims will not be lost in the process, but I haven't tried it - didn't like the sound of it very much although several people seemed to recommend it so it's probably fine.
3. (This is what I've done) Use the "boolprop" cheat to Reset your sim. Warning: boolprop cheat is very powerful & you don't want to forget to turn it OFF after you've finished. Also, if you are an inexperienced Simmer or not great with computers, you may want to avoid this one as if you click on the wrong thing it can have nasty consequences.
Method: Press Ctrl+Shift+C. A thin box will appear at the top of your screen. Into this box type (exactly as it is here but without the quotation marks): "boolprop testingcheatsenabled true" Then hit Enter.
Select your sim, hold down Shift & click on them. You will get all kinds of options you don't usually have. Click on More until you get one that says "Force Error". Select that & you'll get a box with 3 options - Cancel, Reset, Delete. DO NOT DELETE YOUR SIM. Select "Reset" and your sim will pop out of bed & be standing beside the bed.
If you have 2 sims in the bed (as I did) - repeat the last paragraph on the other sim.
Remember to TURN boolprop OFF!
Type into the box "boolprop testingcheatsenabled false" (again without the quotation marks)
Hit Enter.

Carry on happily Simming!
P.S It's a good idea to double check you did really turn boolprop off by attempting to Shift+Click on your sim. If you don't get the strange list of other options, you're good!
