I bought this for a holiday guest we didn't have enough beds for. I was a little skeptical about how comfortable the bed would be because the mattress is so thin, but the mattress sits on a very springy support. As a result, the bed was very comfortable. I like how it folds up and can be moved to a closet for storage. This was a great buy
This iBed-in-a-Box is great. I bought a plastic cover for the mattress that zips around the whole mattress. Then I made the bed with a twin size fitted sheet which worked just fine, pinning it underneath to make a nice tight fit. This folds up and it so compact for storing in a closet, under the bed, or behind a crib in the room. Wow! Great! Thank you for an A+ product.
I purchased this for a very small guest room and decided to sleep on it before asking guests to do so. First off, the bed is so much cuter than all the other bulky, black-metal rollaway cots you can find online. I worried about how thin the foam mattress was, but because of the springs it feels firm and yet like you're floating in air. I had a very comfortable sleep last night. About the dimensions: I am a 5'6" female and weigh 130 lbs. and could turn and stretch easily on the bed. However, if I have tall guests or guests closer to 200 lbs then I would probably give them my bed and take the iBed as I'm not sure how comfortable it would be for them. So obviously you must think about the kinds of people using the bed. Although I would far and away recommend the iBed any day over an air mattress or a twin bed with squeaky springs. Be aware that it is easy to pinch your fingers as you open the bed up. If you don't flip it over quickly enough and let gravity hold it down then it will try to fold back up in the middle. Adults shouldn't have a problem but I could see an older child getting hurt trying to open it.
This bed has a cot feel and look to it which is more sturdy than the folding beds which just springs underneath. It sits quite low off the ground so next to a regular bed looks a bit puny. Good size for a child or shorter person but not for a person over 5'6" as their feet fall off the end. Narrower than a regular folding bed which helps when space is limited.
It hasn't been put to use by a guest yet but both my husband and I laid on it for awhile to test and found, other then low to the ground, for getting up and down, tjat it is quite comfortable (more then anticipated), but will probably let the youngest family members use. It reminds us of a camping cot but better.
