Air Mattresses Comfort.A good night's sleep is the number one thing air mattress reviews focus on. Comfort is often directly associated with how well the air is distributed, how firm the mattress feels, and whether it remains fully inflated through the night. Literally hundreds of air mattress reviews say our top picks, the Intex Raised Downy Queen Airbed (starting at $50, Amazon) and the Coleman SUV Quickbed (starting at $25, Amazon), easily satisfy these performance criteria. We found less consensus in air mattress reviews about the comfort afforded by the two other contenders on our list, the Coleman 4-in-1 Quickbed (starting at $40, Amazon) and the AeroBed Guest Choice Air Bed (twin starting at $58; queen starting at $65, Amazon), which take some hits for what users consider design flaws in the former and excessive air loss with the latter.
Air mattress reviews on Amazon give the Intex Raised Downy Queen Airbed top marks for affordable comfort. This product features two air chambers, one atop the other, with the bottom chamber serving as a sort of box spring substitute. Users' air mattress reviews say the Intex Raised Downy Queen is sufficiently firm and provides adequate support, enough to prevent aches and pains upon awakening, even for a 6-foot-plus reviewer who weighs nearly 300 pounds. For the most part, reviewers say this air mattress holds its height through the night, and some assert it's more comfortable than a regular bed. We did read a few reports of "walking" when sleepers toss and turn, and one consumer compares the surface feel from the air-filled tube-like ridges to pool noodles. (Comfort tip: use an extra-thick mattress cover.) Our other top pick, the Coleman SUV Quickbed, is designed to fit in -- you guessed it -- a sport utility vehicle and is lauded by folks who use it for car and tent camping and others who keep it as an indoor spare. Air mattress reviews on sites such as Amazon are larded with praise for its comfort, with one reviewer using it as a full-time mattress in a recreational vehicle. (Comfort tip: add an egg-crate foam topper under a sheet or sleeping bag.)
The Coleman 4-in-1 Quickbed scores somewhat lower on the comfort meter, according to air mattress reviews. This Coleman model, as its 4-in-1 name implies, can be used four ways: as two separate twin beds, zipped together as a king, and stacked as a double-high twin. Users commenting in air mattress reviews on Walmart say the mattress stays fully inflated during the night and provides a good rest to young and old sleepers, alike -- when used as twin beds, that is. Air mattress reviews on a variety of sites assert the king-mattress arrangement just doesn't work. There's a gap where the two twin mattresses zip together that some users try to close with anything soft (like a towel) and others say filling both sides of the "king" with exactly the same air pressure is harder than it seems - two factors that can interfere with sleeping comfort. Another runner-up pick, the AeroBed Guest Choice, is a welcome convenience when overnight visitors arrive, according to air mattress reviews at Target. Many users say it's comfortable enough until it starts losing air midway through the night, a problem noted in a number of air mattress reviews. Some users report waking up with backaches on a near-deflated mattress, although others assert the AeroBed Guest Choice is an acceptable short-term option.
We also researched the AeroBed EcoLite (twin starting at $80; queen starting at $100, Amazon), which gets a passing grade for comfort in air mattress reviews on Amazon. The weight of negative comments about the battery-powered air pump, however, overwhelmed the positive reports about comfort. The Wenzel Insta-Bed Queen Raised Sure Grip Bottom (starting at $94, Amazon) is another inexpensive air mattress that users praise for its comfort, albeit on a temporary basis. Still more air mattress reviews on Amazon say this model holds air well and keeps guests happy, but is no replacement for a regular bed.
