When you are buying an air mattress for home use, you don’t want to settle for flimsy, thin old school camping mattresses. The best air mattresses for guests are raised platform air mattresses with full body support systems that prevent your spine from sinking into the mattress at the hip and shoulder pressure points.
Your guests shouldn’t have to sleep on the floor. You love them enough to invite them into your home, to share your life. Chances are, you rarely get to see them if they’re visiting from out of town. Even when it comes to slumber parties for your growing children, you want the kids to be safe and comfortable. After all, the Cool Mom with the Best House always knows where her children are and who they’re spending their time with, right?
Beautyrest has developed one of the best air mattresses for guests. If you want your company to sleep in style, then take a look at this fantastic mattress – the Beautyrest Simmons Extraordinaire!
What There Is to Love About the Beautyrest Simmons Extraordinaire Raised Air Mattress
This mattress comes with a 1-year warranty. This means that if you get pinpricks, air leaks, or faulty pumps you can simply have it replaced. This means that even if you’re unsure of the mattress, you can give it a chance and if something fails you don’t have to worry.
This is an especially nice mattress for college students. College dorm rooms can all be very small, and they come with old mattresses that have been used by a lot of people and offer very little support. Just stick the mattress somewhere out of sight for the year in storage and replace it with this one for a far more comfortable sleeping experience.
This mattress also has a massive load capacity. While most Queen mattresses can support around 600 pounds, this mattress is able to withstand 700 pounds of weight despite being a Twin sized frame! It is very rare to see an air mattress that can offer that much support at such an affordable price point.
What There Is to Dislike About the Beautyrest Simmons Extraordinaire Raised Air Mattress
While the mattress is really good at telling you about the internal construction, it’s not that great at the material details, other than letting you know it is made from vinyl. The best and most durable mattresses are made from PVC that is at least 0.4 mm thick. Without knowing what the mattress is made of, it is impossible to tell how it will hold up long term.
The Chinese construction quality could use some work. Although this holds its air well enough from evening to evening, the seams do tend to leak quite a bit. You will need to top the air off on this bed several times a week to maintain adequate pressure. It’s not one of the air mattresses that is easily able to compete with traditional mattresses for daily use.
The quality control also seems to be inconsistent with these mattresses. Many repeat customers are very happy with the mattress overall, but report that each purchase yielded different sleep and quality results. Some of them have leaking air issues, others have an over inflated center that negates the edge support, and still others have a recessed center with pronounced edges.
One way to instantly make all air mattresses for company more comfortable is to top them with a mattress pad or foam mattress topper before putting on the sheets. This will make your guests feel even more welcome!
Although we love this product for company, it is best used for sleepovers and single guest stays. We know the 700-pound weight capacity will hold multiple people, but it’s not a Queen mattress; it’s just a Twin, so it will get really cozy for two people.
That being said, it’s a great mattress for company because of the raised platform and rapid inflation. The durable and sturdy construction will offer more support than other mattresses and be much easier or guests to get into and out of than mattresses that lie very low to the ground.
