One of the great things about inflatable hot tubs is their price compared to the permanent variety. Most permanent spas will run you at least $3 grand, and some up to as much as $8-$9k. Not to mention installation fees. For as little as a few hundred dollars you can get a cheap inflatable hot tub if you don’t mind passing on a few features. Let’s take a look at a few available today.

This is a popular cheap inflatable hot tub for up to 4 people featuring rapid heating (because of its size) and your standard water filtration system. This model includes an easy to operate digital control panel for adjusting water temperature and turning the bubbles on or off. Also included is an inflatable thermal cover that will help keep the water warm as well as keeping debris out of the hot tub. Lastly, you will get a filter cartridge (for the filtration system), a chemical floater (helps keep the spa fresh and clean), and a DVD that details how to setup the spa and the maintenance required for upkeep. All-in-all this is a great cheap inflatable hot tub, although it’s a little smaller than most.
The Coleman Lay-Z Spa inflatable hot tub is very similar to the other Lay-Z Spa hot tubs, just it has been branded by Coleman. It also is a little larger (about 50 gallons extra water) and typically runs about the same price. No wonder this is currently Amazon’s #1 best seller in all outdoor hot tubs, the price is right and it’s made of a very durable material. One tip that I would advise is while you are inflating the hot tub, the keypad will lock. Unlock it ahead of time so you can turn off the air pump promptly instead of wasting time trying to figure out how to unlock the keypad and possibly over inflate your spa. When you need to change the water, you can easily drain it using the convenient drain valve.
This Intex portable spa is another 4 person inflatable hot tub holding 210 gallons of water. Intex is really one of the nicer brands, and the fact that they offer a cheap inflatable hot tub is saying something about the quality of this tub. You won’t find much wrong with it besides what you would expect from one of the more expensive larger full featured hot tubs. The included cover has a sturdy lock on it, so you don’t have to worry about it being blown off or an animal or child climbing into it unsupervised. The maintenance is pretty basic as well. This includes 2 easily replaceable filter cartridges for refreshing, clean spa water. This also includes a nice carry bag if you ever intend to take it on vacation or just for simple storage when not in use.

I have to agree with the majority of Amazon shoppers on this one. the Coleman Lay-Z Spa Inflatable Hot Tub is my favorite of the group when choosing a cheap inflatable hot tub.
