Comfort and Convenience

The Intex Pillow Rest Twin Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump is designed for the comfort of every sleeper, and the features of this bed prove that anyone can get a good night of rest on an air mattress. The internal pump design helps to inflate the bed to just the right level of firmness and makes it easy to maintain the air pressure throughout use without constantly re-attaching the pump to inflate. Like other air beds, re-inflation between uses could be necessary, but the Intex Pillow Rest Twin Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump holds air throughout the night better than most. The flocked top adds to the comfort, and the built in pillows are a definite advantage for staying cozy throughout the night. Plus, the flocked top keeps the bedding in place for even the most restless sleeper. Adding to the convenience is the issue of storage.

The Intex Pillow Rest Twin Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump also comes with a convenient bag for storage, making it the ideal mattress to take along on trips and store in spare rooms for when guests arrive. Folded up in the storage bag, the mattress takes up about as much space as a sleeping bag, so finding room for it in the car, in the closet, under the bed, or with the camping gear is a breeze.


The Intex Pillow Rest Twin Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump is built to last with a waterproof top and vinyl beams along the top, bottom, and sides. The air mattress does have the normal wear and tear issues of other Intex air beds, but overall it will handle many uses with no problems. The more the mattress is used and inflated or deflated, the more the vinyl is likely to exhibit signs of wear.

Other Features

A mid-rise height adds to the benefits of the bed. With 17 ½ inches to get in and out of bed, kids and adults can easily start their morning. Plus, the waterproof feature means less worry for when little visitors come to visit, protecting the bed from spills and accidents through the night. The 90 day warranty is another bonus feature of the mattress, although the companies customer service is lacking.


Another added benefit to the Intex Pillow Rest Twin Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump is that it is a true twin mattress when inflated, so standard fitted sheets will fit easily without bunching or slipping and guests have more room than with other air mattresses in this size category. On top of the room from side to side, even the tallest sleeper has room to stretch out during the night. The length of the mattress is 80”, longer than most twin air bed mattresses.
