Preparing to entertain your friends and family can be a stressful experience. There are a tonne of things to organise - airport pick ups, meals, drinks, activities...

And the first thing you'll probably think about is where they're going to sleep.

If you've got a furnished guest bedroom, great. You're all done - stop reading, make a cup of tea and put your feet up.

Not you? No need to worry.

To take the stress away we have compiled a short list of the best air mattresses for guest bedrooms. You can thank us later.

The SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress is a perfect queen size air bed for guest use because of its 40 internal comfort coils that provide maximum durability and back support. 

It was built to hold up a maximum capacity of 600lbs and truly allows you to stay “sound asleep” all night long. It has a 1-year guarantee to give you peace of mind.

Reviewers felt that this air mattress was desirable because of the fact that they felt they were sleeping on a regular bed.  A couple of reviewers commented negatively that this air bed may begin to bulge at the hem over time.

The Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed was built with maximum durability in mind (for daily use) and is showcased in its internal durabeam design. 

It takes about 4.5 minutes to inflate, which is slightly longer than most, but the extreme comfort provided in the dura-beam design is well worth it. It is 22” tall and is a queen size.

Reviewers loved that this bed was comfortable and held up over a long period of time with frequent use.  A few reviewers noted that they felt they it does not measure to a true “queen” size, but was much smaller.

The Serta Raised Air Mattress with Never Flat Pump comes in both a regular “queen” size as well as a “queen pillow top” option. 

The Never Flat built in pump along with its “auto shut off” feature truly keeps this air mattress resilient and ready to go when you need it. The “auto shut off” feature is unique because you are able to walk away from this bed without worrying about burning out the pump. 

This Serta inflatable bed has a soft and durable top lining that is puncture resistant and comfortable. There are 35 coils inside to provide even more durability and comfort. 

Reviewers felt that this air bed lived up to everything you would expect from a name brand like “Serta”. It is durable, affordable, comfortable, and designed to truly satisfy the customer. 

However, a few reviewers noted that they felt the pump was extremely loud. 

The Insta-Bed Raised Air Mattress with Never Flat Pump truly lives up to its expectation of being “never flat”. It’s high powered dual pump systems makes sure of it. 

There is one external pump for initial inflation/deflation and a silent internal pump that runs all night to keep the bed inflated and ensuring you get a great night sleep. 

The internal and external pump make it perfect for everyday use because the single pump does not have to work as hard to keep the bed inflated making it last longer. 

This air bed comes in many options, making it one of the most versatile inflatable mattresses on the market. 

You may purchase it in twin, queen, queen with headboard, queen pillow top, or full size. And if you're thinking this ones looks exactly like the Serta, then you're right. They're effectively that same, except unlike the Serta brand, Insta-bed doesn't come with a long warranty period.

The Intex Pillow Rest Raised Airbed with built-in pillow makes our list because it truly is affordable. It has a built in electric pump and a waterproof top lining to ensure it lasts as long as you need it to.

The cheapest air mattress of the bunch, reviewers loved this air bed because they felt that it was soft to the touch and comfortable to sleep on. However, a couple of reviewers made note that it is very difficult to get in and out of as it tends to sink in the middle.
