3 Best Mattresses to Use in Short-Term Rentals

Updated: Mar 15

Let's talk about the unsung hero of guest satisfaction – mattresses! This is one area where you DO want your listing to be a snoozefest! After all, there’s nothing like a comfy bed – and even better if it’s an upgrade from their home mattress. Here's a rundown of the best mattresses to give your guests a dreamy visit.

And while this isn’t an area to go cheap, there’s no need to break the bank. Each of these mattresses have excellent consumer reviews and are all under $1,000 at last check.

1. Serta Perfect Sleeper Innerspring Mattress

Known for durability (hint: key in a short-term rental!) the Serta Perfect Sleeper innerspring reduces motion transfer and provides head-to-toe comfort. Bonus: most do not require a foundation or box spring.

2. The Chill Mattress - Cocoon by Sealy

Can 8,000 5-star reviews still be a gamble? Cocoon offers a 100-night trial. If your guests aren't wowed, return it with their no hassle guarantee. Chill Collection features a 10" Memory Foam mattress offering conforming comfort and a 12" Hybrid mattress providing a responsive bounce. Both mattresses offer a medium feel and come equipped with a cooling cover designed to absorb and disperse heat, ensuring a cool and comfortable rest as you unwind.

3. Sealy Posturepedic® Hybrid Lacey 13" Plush Mattress

A hybrid mattress combines two or more support systems - memory foam with an innerspring system - to provide a balance of comfort and support. The Hybrid Lacey mattress allows for better airflow, reduced motion transfer, and increased durability compared to traditional innerspring mattresses. In a short-term rental, hybrid mattresses are popular for providing a supportive yet cushioned sleep surface suitable for a wide range of sleepers.

BONUS TIP!  Don’t forget the encasement and protectors (in the right depth) for your mattresses to protect against bed bugs, bacteria and liquids.

Although mattress comfort is a subjective art, you're sure to hit the snooze button on guest complaints and wake up to raving reviews with any of these brands.

Happy hosting!
