The Wenzel Insta-Bed Raised Sure-Grip Bottom with Built-In Pump is nearly the same height as a standard mattress and frame, so it's easier to get in and out of than a typical inflatable mattress. The Wenzel Insta-Bed features a built-in pump for easy inflation in 90 seconds, and it includes a nylon bag with shoulder straps for storage. Reviewers say this mattress is comfortable and doesn't lose air with frequent usage. The Wenzel Insta-Bed comes only in queen size, so if you're looking for a smaller mattress, consider the AeroBed Guest Choice Air Bed (*Est. $60), which has a depth of 8 inches and is available in twin and queen sizes.
