Intex creates luxurious sleeping experiences with air mattresses that rival traditional beds and outpaces the competition in comfort, affordability, safety and innovation. We’ve found that with features like lavish foam, pillow rests, plush flocking and interconnected air pocket systems, we’re more likely to flop across one of their mattresses in the living room or basement as opposed to going upstairs and climbing into our own bed.
In that regard, here are 10 of the company’s top air mattresses that will make sleeping at your house a must with everyone that visits.
Inflated in minutes, the Ultra Plush Airbed has a nice height, giving it more of a real bed feel. The combined support system and textured surface adds a heightened layer of comfort. The outer perimeter is inflated and greatly boosts the air mattress’s stability. Your guests won’t even know they’re not resting on a traditional bed. The Ultra Plus Airbed meets the strictest safety standards and promises to provide years of comfort and satisfaction.
“We’ve now had this air mattress for almost 5 years. We haven’t had any leaks/punctures, and the pump still works great for inflating and deflating.” – Justin
Designed specifically for people who spend a lot of time outdoors and who can appreciate its mobility, the Inflatable Fabric Camping Mattress is made of laminated vinyl that will hold up to a range of outdoor adventures. Engineered to be a simple and quick sleeping option, this product was built to be a compact, extremely light solution without compromising the comfort you expect from Intex. It can be quickly folded and tucked away. This item also makes for a fun lake or pool flotation device. It has a built-in pillow to support the neck in ways most air mattresses and sleeping bags cannot.
“This mattress worked well and I generally recommend it. The thick vinyl construction is noticeably better that the thin camping pads you’ll find in big box stores.” – ideas
A twin bed design, the Intex Deluxe Pillow Rest Raised Airbed has a waterproof flocked top, vinyl beams and an indented top chamber that prevents sheets from slipping. It has a soft integrated pillow to maximize rest and neck support. It’s a fun choice for guests that need to sleep in the kids’s bedroom. The durability and ability to adjust firmness minimizes sagging that even traditional beds give way to after years of usage. This is a high tech and affordable solution when you need extra sleeping accommodations. When not in use, it’s easily stored away.
“This bed is awesome. Rarely has had to be pumped up. We can’t believe how comfortable and durable this bed has been.” – Vulture
A lot of inflatable air mattresses rest too low to the floor. In a lot of cases, you can actually feel the floor despite the mattress. The Comfort Plush Elevated Airbed rests a solid 18 inches from the floor. And with the product’s firmness, plush flocking and horizontal air chamber system, it’s unlikely you’re going to remember you’re anywhere near the floor. It has 15 gauge vinyl beams and 16 gauge sides and bottom beams. Like many Intex air mattresses, the product comes with a built-in electric pump, so no fussing with external pumps. It also has the manufacturer’s convenient button for controlling comfort levels.
“Very very comfortable. Since the mattress has small ridges on it I decided to place a memory foam mattress topper on the it so that the surface would be smooth, hoping for a comfortable sleep. Wow! – shortcake
An incredibly affordable option, the Classic Downy Airbed Set is going to give everyone a restful night of sleep. It comes with a hand pump and two inflatable pillows. It’s made from a heavy and durable gauge vinyl, upping the cozy factor significantly. For campers, it’s waterproof and cleans easily with mild soap and water. At 60 by 80 inches, it officially qualifies as a queen sized bed. The air mattress is raised a little under nine inches off the floor and can manage 600 pounds of weight. It conveniently folds for storage.
“So far we have used the airbeds only for camping. We are very pleased with them. They are truly ‘queen’ size and my husband and I shared one and we had plenty of room each.” – loveguitar
The Intex Classic Downy Airbed has become a go-to for both guests and camping. It is constructed from heavy, durable gauge vinyl. Raising a mere 8.75 inches from the floor, the queen sized airbed isn’t as plush as many of the beds on this list but that doesn’t mean it lacks in comfort. Unlike many air mattresses, the Classic Downy has been known to stay firm over a week without needing more air. Its thin size also makes it a lighter option when you are traveling. Like many Intex products, this air mattress features a valve that prevents air from escaping while you inflate and hastens deflating by unscrewing the valve.
“This is a great bed at an awesome price.” – joe
We’re betting the Comfort Plush Mid Rise will get a lot of use. It’s designed with Intex’s lauded Dura-Beam system which gives the air mattress more of a real bed feel. There is no rocky floating that you experience with traditional air mattresses. If you have room in the RV, this will make a great addition to your sleeping arrangements. Guests will really appreciate the good night’s sleep this product affords. And it’s guaranteed to last a lot longer than comparable air mattresses.
“So far this bed has exceeded all expectations. It is very comfortable….very, very comfortable in fact. Actually, more comfortable than my foam bed.” – Elizabeth R.
One major inconvenience of the average air mattress is, no matter how comfortable, you’re still going to need extra pillows. But Intex has taken that into account. The Intex Pillow Rest Raised Airbed has a built-in pillow. It comes with a carrying bag, a high-powered electric pump integrated into the construction, flocked waterproof top and a double layered wave beam construction. For its size, it’s relatively lightweight, making it an ideal option for travelers. Customize the comfort level of this queen sized airbed to your taste with the touch of a button, ensuring the air mattress is never too firm or too soft.
“The best bed I’ve ever slept on, within the last 3.5 years of my graduate studies (not counting a King bed in Hilton near San-Francisco airport). I really love this bed.” – ij
Part of Intex’s Dura-Beam series, the Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed promises to be both durable and comforting for years. It has the company’s proprietary Fiber-Tech construction. This is a beam construction stitched together with thousands of strong polyester fibers. Along with soft to the touch plush flocking, you get stability and support. You also get a fully-tested 20.8 gauge waterproof top and 16 gauge sides and bottom.
The Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed has a convenient and easy to operate electric pump that’s built into the product. That means quick inflation in a few minutes. It also deflates as quickly. The air mattress raises 22 inches in height and has indented sides to prevent sheets from slipping. It also includes a duffel bag for easy storage and transport.
“FANTASTIC! I would rate this item as one of the best products I have ever bought!” – Deb
The Raised Downy Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump has dual chamber construction with the lower chamber operating as a box spring and upper layer acting as a mattress. This provides the support and firmness you get from traditional beds. Fully-inflated, it’s a queen sized bed that measures 60 by 80 inches, raises 22 inches from the floor and holds up to 600 pounds.
Unlike other air mattresses, you can customize comfort levels with the touch of a button. The air mattress can be managed with a sponge or a soft bristled brush, mild soap and water. Expect this product to last for years without losing any of its capacity to provide a restful sleep.
All your guests are going to love flailing across this air mattress. And your kids will appreciate it on trips where they might otherwise have to sleep on cots, flimsy beds or on the floor.
