I would like help identifying these spiders. The first picture is of one found on a bed. The second one was found in the bathroom. Is it a false widow?
I think the bottom picture that you have labeled a False Widow is actually a Northern Cobweb Spider -- Steatoda borealis. The photos I found seem to match it exactly.
The spider in the top picture looks like a black GROUND SPIDER -- Family Gnaphosidae. Check online to see these two spider types to see if you think they match. Good luck.
Your spiders have probably been identified but mainly they do appear to be in the 'common' house spider category but not necessarily a welcome guest.
If you see more than one I would consider taking steps to eliminate them maybe locate their entrance area.
If in doubt about an insect, you can always send photos to your county extension agency as they will tell you what it is and how to remove them.

Does anyone know what kind of insect this is?
This does not appear to be a black widow spider:
Pictures are graphic:
Your spider resembles the Black House Spider:
You may wish to ask your local about this just to be sure:
It could be a black house spider. www.google.com/
Your photo isn't real clear, but it appears to be a black house spider. These little guy's webs often trap pesky insects that are trying to get into your home. The second photo shows you what the black house spider looks like:
This is- Badumna Insignis, better known as a House Spider. - en.wikipedia.org/
I don't think this is a Black House Spider as the males black house spiders are 10 mm in size, the female growing up to 18 mm, with a 30 mm leg span. Your spider looks very tiny (I noticed how the fibers of the background are enlarged).
I think this is a Dwarf spider
Scotinella species of dwarf antmimic spider:
If this spider is very small, then this is a Dwarf Spider. Here someone asked to identify a very small spider in house bugguide.net/
