I recently purchased this item so that visiting inlaws would have a place to crash since I turned my guest bedroom into a nursery. I bought this because it seemed a bit more like a real bed. They adored it! My father in law said he sleeps better on this bed than he does in his very expensive memory foam mattress at home! I was so impressed I had to try it out. It really was a pleasure. Like camping out in my house! It is easy to make up and inflate/deflate. I can have the guest/nursery ready for company in about 20 minutes. I don't think it would be the best for someone who prefers or needs a very hard mattress but for me who likes to slide to the center of a squishy bed it was perfect. The size made getting in and out a lot easier than a traditional inflatable mattress as well. I recently suggested it to close friends who were also expecting, and expecting inlaws. They have already tried it out and loved it themselves. So much so that they offered to give their bed to the visitors and keep the inflatable all to themselves!
