I would place this bed in the TOP 10 most durable beds on the market today. The judgement is based on taking a closer look at the materials, quality of the seams and how well it holds air. On the other hand, the dual chamber construction makes it comfortable. You could probably find an inflatable bed that's more comfortable, but this Insta is hard to beat in durability/comfort balance.

Ok, so this review will be different and it will probably be the only one of it’s kind that I’ll write. The premise of the website is to provide unbiased reviews, I can’t really promise that with this one.


Because I have this air mattress. I have and I love it.

As far as I’m concerned, this is a queen sized cloud!

It was few years back that I got it, after a few falsely advertised air bed fiascoes involving serious back pain, leaking from no obvious sources and cranky guests that no longer want to stay over, I found this bed to be a real breath of fresh air, no pun intended.

Having driven myself crazy with research and reading various reviews much of which were too biased if you ask me, I have decided to gather experiences from other people, as well as my own in this very article to save you, from the torture that is having to choose how to spend a not very small amount of money.

I will do my best to help you make a calm, informed decision that will not only save your time and money but also give you and your loved ones many nights of peaceful dreams.

P.S. I even let my arthritis tortured parents in law sleep on this bed and they just don’t want to go home! Be very careful with this.

This air bed review will contain:

  1. The information about the product given by the company
  2. Sincere opinions, PROs and CONs from actual customers
  3. An overall quality rating and a final resume.

So, when we’re all done here, you’ll know the answer to your question:

Is this the best air bed for your needs?

With that said, let us get to the point!

Now let’s see what the users had to say about this bed.

The positive owners reviews of this air bed – the PROs:

Insta-Bed Queen Raised Sure Grip air bed review

  • pumps up and deflates rapidly, comfortable to lie on
  • for this money it’s a steal, I’ve paid twice as much for my previous air mattress which didn’t last half the time…
  • holds air for a long time without having to be refilled
  • easy to assemble, durable and sturdy
  • has a good height making it easy to get in and out, which is kind of big deal if you are 74
  • ideal compact folding and storage
  • has a deflate feature which makes my life so much easier
  • doesn’t slide at all
  • great for slumber parties and hangover forts 🙂
  • smart and thoughtful design
  • it’s a blink to blow up and deflate…
  • very good value for your dollar…
  • my sheets fit perfectly, that was big concern for me…
  • Being a traveler, I had almost any brand of air mattresses that you can think of, Aerobed, Coleman, Intex, you name it. This product exceeds the quality of any of those beds.
  • I rarely write reviews and this is my first one, but I had to do it. It’s not so often that a product exceeds your expectations. Would highly recommend it to anyone…
  • I have serious back problems and I slept on this bed at my friends house. I’ve slept better then on my conventional high-end mattress. I am getting one for my home…
  • Just super durable, comfortable and compact. I have it for a year now, absolutely no holes, minimal leakage (I only add air once per week). When deflated packs amazingly small.

The negative reviews of the air mattress – the CONs:

  • had holes by the vent, a bit pricey for my budget
  • the battery went bad after 6 months, but I have to say that the customer service took care of it
  • has to be refilled often, when out of the bag it develops, but it went away after a few days
  • had a hard time putting it back in the bag
  • got damaged in the mail, still waiting for the replacement

My resume of the review of this Insta

As I said, I am a bit subjective while I am typing these lines, because I love this bed. But I promise to put on my unbiased glasses and look at the negative reviews and see what’s going on there.

Ok, so I see people talking about it arriving with holes and developing a smell out of the bag but I am seeing very little reviews saying that it develops leaks over time.

And those two are a completely separate type of negative reviews – the former is the type that will statistically happen with any air bed you might come across. that’s where the guarantee and the customer service should come in. And with, Insta beds they do. I know it personally. So, these kind of negative reviews are never deal breakers as far as I am concerned.

A deal breaker would be me seeing a large number of people saying that their air bed leaks. And when I say large I mean compared to the positive reviews.

Without further ado, this is an amazing air mattress with a solid warranty. I do not regret spending my money on it! It has saved me time, space and energy and on top of all that it is a great value for what I paid. Any chance I get to use it, I’ll sleep on it.

It has given me many opportunities to spend time with the people I love and offer them a warm, comfy bed with an at-home atmosphere.

All jokes aside, it is a high quality air mattress, and on of my personal favorites. The 48 out of 50 rating says it all.

No doubt about it, a 5 star air bed and a true catch!
