Have you ever used an inflatable mattress in a resort room?

Anyone ever done this is? Is it allowed? Thanks

We've used a twin sized inflatable matress in several resorts - most recently at the Caribbean Beach. We had no problem and would prop the matress up against the wall before leaving the room in the morning so it wasn't in the way when housekeeping came to freshen up the room. Just FYI...we've also used them in the All-Star resorts and the POP Century.

a lot of people have, especially if they drive, and aren't using it to exceed the room limits. Say, they have 2 kids who hate to share a bed..for example.

We did that this year at POR and it worked great. Just lean it up against the wall during the day for housekeeping. I got a fantastic 16" thick air mattress with a ledge to keep pillows from going over the side, as well as a set of sheets. The resort gave us pillows and a blanket.

We fly and still bring them. We have two kids, 18 and 17. We are all VERY tall people so kind of sleep a little sideways on the bed. Husband and I (since we are the ones paying for the room!) each have a bed and the kids take the two mattresses. We have done it in a value and a mod. Housekeeping brings us things to make up both beds (blankets, sheets and a few more pillows). We have never had questions about it and we always do the same thing, lean them up against the wall between the bathroom and the one bed. It really works out great but if someone is a sleep walker, could make for a little crowded floor. We have XL twin air mattresses that are 80 inches long, I do not believe a queen would work anywhere in the standard room.

We have used the twin sized mattresses on several occasions. On our last trip I believe we even fit two of the twin sized mattresses in a standard room at POFQ and as a previous poster said just prop them up against the wall during the day so mousekeeping can clean!

Used one last month at AoA. Adults have a hard time on the mattresses in the suites.

We propped it against the wall by the couch. It wasn't in the way at all.

I'm the short one in my family growing and I read this with joy and understanding of everyone else's pain. I'm glad your whole family figured it out

We just returned from AS Sp this afternoon. I was afraid that a full size air mattress would make life a little too snug so I was able to find a kid size cot for DD (9). Worked out very well...just moved the table and chairs in front of the window and put the cot on the wall between the table and tv. No one said a thing and we were able to get extra blankets from the resort. Also didn't have to worry about moving each day because it wasn't in the walking path.

We used one in January at CBR. It was only a twin mattress, but worked out great! We also fly and brought it with us.

We have a queen Aerobed. We've used it in a 1 bedroom BWV and in a room at CSR.
