A mattress is one of the most important purchases you'll make around the house. You can't replace the value of good sleep. But, what about when you're hosting visitors (or sleeping somewhere outside your home? Sure, air mattresses are great, but a foldable mattress might be even better.
Innerspring beds are so last century. Who wants to tug a large bed and mattress cover set into their camper, RV, tent, or guest bedroom? You need something that can fold out easily and be stored in small spaces quickly. These fold-out mattresses are just what you're looking for.
Best Foldable Mattress

The Zinus Mattress pad is 5" of cushy, comfy, CertiPUR-US certified memory foam. For a folding bed, it's tough to beat this level of comfort. Not to mention, this pad is super clean since Zinus infuses its foam with anti-odor agents that stop bad smells before they start.
Compared to the other fold-up pads on this list, this portable mattress only comes in smaller sizes. There are three options: a narrow twin size mattress, a regular twin, and a cot size. Although it won't cover your larger beds, it is perfect for kid's sleepovers. Just toss a sleeping bag over top and say good night.
Now that I think about it, if it's the right size for a sleeping bag, then it's the right size for a camping trip. Who knows, maybe you'll want to replace that old air mattress.
