Last Updated: November 25, 2020

Matt Ross

We’re big fans of the GhostBed mattress here at The Slumber Yard, and now we’re going to take a look at their fully equipped adjustable base. It comes complete with a built-in massager, zero gravity mode, and several other notable features we’ll go over in our review. Does it live up to our expectations based on the other products we’ve seen from the company? Find out in this post!

Who Is This Best For?

Anybody with a GhostBed mattress (it’s compatible with other beds too!)

Folks who read or watch TV in bed

Anyone who snores (it has an anti-snore mode)

Those with aches and pains (built-in head and foot massager)

Who Won’t Love It?

Anyone with a California king mattress (GhostBed’s adjustable base isn’t currently available in this size)

Those who want the option to return their bed frame

Overview: The GhostBed Adjustable Bed Frame

If you’re not already familiar with GhostBed, they’re a bed-in-a-box mattress company with quality mattresses for a really fair price. They also bring what the industry calls “affordable luxury” to the adjustable bed frame game, since they manufactured theirs with just about everything you can hope a bed frame comes with. But before we get into the details, we want to talk a little about their policies.

First of all, every GhostBed Adjustable Base comes with a lifetime limited warranty. This means certain parts are covered for the entire time you own the base, and others aren’t. You’re entitled to a full year of repair coverage for parts, labor, and transportation costs. You do have the option to purchase an “extended warranty” though, which will fully cover the cost of parts, labor and freight expenses for another three years. We always suggest folks look into the details of a product’s warranty, so head over to their website to get more information about it.

You’ll also get free shipping when you purchase GhostBed’s adjustable base which is great, but we don’t love their no return policy. Unlike their mattresses, all sales on this product are final.

The GhostBed Frame Set Up Process

Your adjustable base should ship to you in about 2-5 business days, and it’ll show up on your front porch in a large box about the size of a large table top.

Setting up the GhostBed Adjustable Base is simple, and should only take you about 10-15 minutes with two people, or 15-20 minutes with one person. You don’t need to drill a bunch of pieces together like you do for a piece of IKEA furniture, and the manual is pretty easy to follow if you need it.

Design And Highlighting Features

This adjustable base comes in three sizes; twin XL, queen, and split king. Those are the standard sizes that you see with adjustable bed frames.

One thing that’s worth noting is that if you want a king size bed frame, you have to purchase two twin XL’s and sync them together when they arrive at your home. Instructions on how to sync your bed frames together should be included in your manual, or you can look it up on the company’s website.

Like we said before, this bed frame is fully loaded with a ton of features. We’ll start off with one of our favorites, the beloved head and foot massager.

There are a total of 15 massage modes you can choose from, and you can set a timer to make the massage last up to 30 minutes for those rough days when you need a good stress relieving session. The noise from the massager is noticeable, but it’s not to the point where it’s obnoxious or distracting from your relaxing massage.

There are three different preset positions including TV, zero gravity, and lounge, plus the anti-snore mode. The TV and lounge buttons are supposed to put you in the optimal position for watching television and reading, and the Anti-Snore button is for when you or your significant other starts to sound like a lawn mower starting up.

Our favorite setting though, has to be zero gravity or the “ZG” on the remote. It was first discovered by NASA for their astronauts to use to simulate a weightless feeling, and it levels out the force of gravity across your whole body to relieve pressure and improve circulation.

It’s pretty handy to use the space under your bed for extra storage, and we’ll tell you there’s a decent amount of it underneath GhostBed’s base.

It’s 11” off the ground when it’s flat, leaving you enough room to store bins with your seasonal clothes, luggage, or extra bedding. The head of GhostBed’s adjustable base gets 39” off the ground at its highest, and the foot gets about 15” off the ground at its highest.

There’s also a pretty strong light underneath the base so you don’t have to find your flashlight every time you’re searching for something deep under your bed.

The last feature we want to highlight on GhostBed’s adjustable bed frame are its dual USB ports on both sides of the frame, which we think come in really handy when you have several things on your nightstand taking up the only outlet near your mattress.

As far as the design goes, it’s pretty contemporary and neutral, so it should blend in with any room color and decor. The fabric around the border is a dark grey color, and the entire base is constructed out of steel, including the bar that keeps your mattress in place.

Price Of The GhostBed Adjustable Base

We mentioned how GhostBed’s adjustable bed frame is considered affordable luxury, so you can expect the price to be about $1,000 for a queen size. If you want to purchase the extended warranty with it, the price for a queen goes up to almost $1,400. You can see the current price/offers on GhostBed’s website.

Twin XL$799
Split King$1,598

If you’re looking for a bed frame with all the additional features, we think GhostBed’s has a pretty great value. If you’re somebody on a tight budget, however, there are a few other more affordable adjustable bed frames you can look into like the Lucid L300 Adjustable Base, or the Classic Brands Adjustable Base.

GhostBed Adjustable Base Review Verdict

So do we think the GhostBed Adjustable Base is worth the money? We’re going to confidently say yes on this one. We think it’s up to par with the quality of the Nolah Adjustable Base, but GhostBed’s base is more affordable in many cases. So if you’re looking for a fully loaded bed frame and you have the means to spend around $1,000 on one, we think this one is a pretty good choice.
