The original BedInABox® is one of the original trend-setter brands to sell mattresses to customers in a box. Since starting, they have added mattresses in a variety of firmness options and pricepoints. With a focus on memory foam mattresses, their offerings have multiple layers of foam and range from 9'' to 13'' thick. Overall, customers like their mattresses at first, but there were some complaints about durability reported by some.
Resort Sleep offers a mid-range/mid-price memoryfoam and gel mattress. They sell almost exclusively on Amazon and some of their reviews complain about misadvertised width and misrepresentation of where the mattress is made. Although there are plenty of good reviews, please do your homework -- there are plenty of high quality mattresses for similar prices that don't involve the same risk.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Bed In A Box in this match up!

Customer satisfaction isn't all that simple to figure out for the average shopper, especially with brands managing their online reputation closely. That said, overall, these mattresses are reviewed well by sleepers. However, there were some who didn't appreciate the feel. so look below to see if the mattress specifications will work for your body type!
In terms of support, these mattresses have had some mixed reviews. Some customers feel comfortable and well supported, but others didn't feel that the mattress was equipped to provide comfort. If you are heavier than average, these mattresses may leave something to be desired.
Edge support is extremely important for those that want to sit on the side of their mattress without dipping down or becoming uncomfortable. Unfortunately, some may experience dipping while putting weight on the edges of these mattresses.
Having a durable mattress is essential to shoppers, but some companies care more about profits than they do about quality. The nice thing is that these mattresses are better than average when it comes to durability. Most folks will find that they are happy with their mattress after 5 to 7 years, but some heavier folks may find that it breaks down faster for them.
Customer reviews can be sometimes difficult to find and make sense of -- especially with all of the noise in the industry. Sleepers, sadly, don't always feel comfortable from these mattresses. There are still folks that are content, but others who are really not. Research more below to learn about the specifics of the mattresses.
Some customers have been satisfied with the supportiveness of these mattresses, but some have had issues with support over the long term. For those with achy backs that need spine alignment, make sure to read the reviews to make sure the mattress works for you.
There are mixed feelings about edge support for these mattresses. Some reviewers feel good about the support equalibrium across the mattress, but others felt like there was unevenness.
Everyone wants a mattress that will last forever, and when our mattress starts to hurt our backs after a few months, we feel swindled. That said, it is much more difficult to find the right durable mattress nowadays. With more types of products than ever before, some brands aren't investing as much in quality. With these mattresses specifically, some sleepers report problems with lasting comfort. It doesn't mean that durability issues will happen to you if you buy one of these, but make sure to read up on the warranty and return policies before buying.
I had great hopes for this bed; however, it is just too firm. Our former memory foam mattress lasted about 7 years, and my husband and I were beginning to have lower back pain because the bed had broken down and was too soft. Prior to that happening; however, we were very happy with the bed. Unfortunately, the manufacturer was no longer in business or we would have just purchased another.
After lots of research of reviews, etc., on the internet, I settled on the pacbed original 11." I was a little concerned about the only complaints being that the bed was too firm, but I thought we would try it and we could also buy a topper if it was too firm. First, the gel memory foam on the pacbed is different from our former bed, which conformed to your body. The gel memory foam simply depresses where you lay, more like a traditional spring form mattress, instead of enveloping your body. In addition, the three inches is not sufficient because you end up depressing through to the support foam, which is very hard. For reference, I am 5'7" and 145 lbs. Both my husband and I have had hip pain since purchasing this bed, and I can no longer sleep on my stomach. I have forced myself to sleep on my side with a pillow between my legs, which is the only way I can sleep comfortably and not wake up in pain.
We bought a 3" memory foam topper that was returnable (through another vendor) to get us through the 60 trial period, but it has made our bed ridiculously high (14") and while it does help relieve the pressure points, it just does not measure up to our old bed as far as comfort goes, and I still have issues with my arms falling asleep when I sleep on my stomach. Sigh. Unfortunately, this is going back when our trial is up in 30 days.
I also find it odd that I cannot figure out how to leave a review on their site. Perhaps they don't let you review until the full 60 days has past.
I'm giving this product 3 out of 5 for now. I suspect it will go down to a 2 unless it miraculously improves in comfort.
I researched the best I could online. SleepLikeTheDead.com appears to be, purports to be, a non-biased review organization. They rate this product higher than any other. And report 380+ customer reviews in part of their opinion.
"The ratings – based on 380+ consumer reviews gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology – show how Bed In A Box mattresses compare to the average mattress."
Problem is, I can't find any customer reviews on the BedInaBox website. I can't find anywhere to leave a review on their website. I can't find any ling on the SleepLikeTheDead website to provide a review. So, I'll leave it here, with the other 5.
I purchased a twin for my son and a king fro myself. My son's mattress has no "off-gassing" smell. My mattress smells like it became moldy in the air vacuumed packaging, and is going on 5 days of a smell I can't sleep with. The smell has permeated my down comforter and I suspect I'm going to need to replace it.
My son says his mattress is fine and has no issues with comfort.
I have issues with my L5/S1. My previous mattress caused me discomfort. This mattress makes my back pain unbearable. I can't sleep through he night and have pain all day long. I am resorting to sleeping on the couch while I wait for the 60 day trial period to end.
The bed does not give in enough. My hips are raised while my L5 is forced down. It's basic physics. Even if you don't have L5 issues, this mattress will certainly encourage it. If I slept on my side, I'm sure it would not be an issue. I don't sleep on my side.
Not impressed. Not impressed with SleepLikeTheDead or BedInABox.
I can only hope that they don't expect me to ship this thing back to get the money back guarantee. I don't have the equipment to make it compact and vacuum packed that they do when they shipped it to me.
I LOVE this bed!!!!!! While shopping for a new mattress I wanted to try a non traditional online mattress retailor. I first tried CASPER beds and that bed was so uncomfortable I could only sllep on it for 4 nights before my wife made we change back to our spring mattress. This was our next bed and after a week we decided we would keep it for good. The customer service during ordering was great . I really liked the try in home no risk policy but dont worry you wont need to use it cause this bed is amazing. It is just as comfortable as the Temper-pedic beds I tried in stores. Give this bed a try whats the worst that could happen.
Arrived in a very manageably sized package, I didn't have any off gassing issues, and the bed is every bit as comfortable as I'd hoped so far.
Excellent..just what me and my wife needed
Not as comfortable as I imagined
We recently ordered the PacBed Original and a foundation, King, online. Ordering was straightforward and easy. Communication from Bed-In-A-Box was timely and done via email. Our mattress and foundation arrived within four business days. Set up for the foundation took about 20 minutes - directions were easy to follow and assembly was without hitch. Unboxing / unwrapping of the mattress was quick and again, easy, taking about 4 minutes. This king size mattress is a bit heavy and unweidly to move into place on the foundation but with two people it was done within 30 seconds. Total time to set up: 30 minutes! Note: There was no smell to the mattress.
The mattress feel is firm. You can barely feel another move, toss or turn, or get in or out of the bed. It did take a few days to adjust to the feel of the mattress and getting a quilted mattress cover helped in adding a bit of 'cushion'. The first few days my husband and I woke up stiff...though we believe that was due to staying in one position rather than tossing and turning or lack of support.
After two weeks sleeping on the mattress...we love it! It's comfortable. Neither of us toss or turn anymore. It provides quality support. When we need to replace our other mattresses, this will be the one we buy!
Bought this mattress to replace a pillow top mattress that was showing some wear and not very comfortable any more. Very pleased so far. Our son recommended bed in a box after he bought one for himself 2 years ago.
We recently purchased a 'Bed in the Box', everyone thought I was crazy, but the online research and reviews were great so we decided to give it a try - we are very happy with the mattress, the ordering process and delivery.
Great price. Quick delivery. Super comfortable ! My husband is up by 6:30 AM having never slept better!! Customer for like!
My husband and I love this bed. It is extremely comfortable and supportive, without being too soft. The warranty plus the 120-day money back guarantee are unheard of and excellent. I am so excited to have this bed for a long, long time!
Our 8 year old Tempurpedic no longer did the trick. Sore backs for both of us every morning. Our new mattress is great, easy to move and unpack, no off-gassing, and so comfortable.
Been sleeping on the mattress for several weeks now. I would call it firm. It's very comfortable for me as a stomach/back sleeper. I thought it might be too firm for my wife as she is a side sleeper, but she is happy too.
I'm not sure what I was expecting at first, my initial shock was that it was literally a bed in a box. From visiting with others about a foam mattress, we were told to 'break' in the bed by walking/jumping on it. Now the bed has settled quite nicely. We are sleeping much more comfortably and soundly. I truly wake up with few to zero aches. Overall, BedInABox was extremely easy to purchase from, quick to ship and so far a great product! I only hope it continues to get better through the years!
Very firm, very comfortable bed! No backaches! In fact, I like it better than our tempurpedic!
Comfortable, but a little firmer than I expected.
Have only slept on it 3 night due to being out of town. Seems good so far. It is an adjustment from sleeping on a inner spring mattress for 50 years. The mattress was a little firmer than I expected. I want to give it a good month before I can truly give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.
I bought this to replace my old mattress. It is a little firmer than I expected but overall nice mattress. I do sleep better.
initially my pacbed felt far firmer than my tranquility I had before, and its supposed to be the softer bed. after 1 week I think I like the bed but I really need more time to know for sure.
We've only had our mattress for 8 days, so it's a little difficult for me to give it a full 5 stars. I bought this mattress over my husband's mild objections, really worried it wouldn't work out. So far, it has. I'm sleeping much more comfortably than I have in a year. I'm a side sleeper and can only sleep on left side due to medical issues. I've developed arthritis in left hip. Happily, I'm not waking up in the night because of pain in my hip and feel rested and ache free in the morning. My husband is feeling more rested, too. The 2 things I'm not so happy about are the mattress seems concave. I actually feel like I could roll over to the middle when my husband gets in bed. I don't like that; what will happen in the future? Also, I can feel him move around. I was counting on this being motion free. I should have gotten a king and or a higher quality mattress. I've already recommended Bed in a Box to a friend.
My wife and I are sleeping much better since we got this bed. I haven't had any of the neck pains I used to have with our old bed. Setup was pretty easy and was accomplished without problem.
The bed came and was easy to assemble. We also bought the box spring which was fairly simple to assemble. The bed is firmer than I am used to
Ok, I know that was a lame headline but this mattress is a dream. Here is how it went down. The delivery was 2 days early (free shipping 3 days). It arrived wrapped in plastic rolled like a tightly rolled sleeping bag. This concerned me at first as I thought it it was much thinner than expected. However upset n opening it expanded to the promised thickness (this is my first memory foam mattress, so that may be a duh statement if you have ordered one before). It isn't too heavy for an average strength person, but I would recommend two people maneuver it on've open. It feels like a cloud and i just love it. It comes with a memory foam pillow (it was a nice surprise, but a detailed l may have missed in the discrption. I think you will love it.View More Reviews
So we got our queen size mattress in 3 days (In Hawaii). The box was the length of a queen bed, but it was rolled up like a log. It unrolled and expanded. The free pillow is great. I want to get another one. It's not too big like my other pillow that keeps my head tilted forward when I sleep. My old mattress was sagging in the middle so both my wife and I would get a sore back after sleeping on the bed. This mattress had great support and is rather firm. Part of that may be due to the mattress cover (since our little ones sometimes climb into bed with us). We ended up getting a 3" mattress topper and it was perfect. I think that's the route to go. Not much you can do if it feels too soft. It's not hot to sleep on either. Very happy with the purchase.
HERE'S THE THING ABOUT MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES: The heaviest part of your body is from your shoulders to your pelvic region. That part of your body sinks in more than the rest of your body. So, your head and your legs will be higher once you settle in a memory foam mattress. Whether it be on your side, on your back, or on your stomach. Your body is going to make a C shape whichever way you sleep. If you sleep side by side with someone, this effect only becomes worse as more weight is added to the middle of the bed. I'm 6'2" 210lbs, my gf is 5'4," maybe 130lbs. We create a big valley in the center of a memory foam bed that is very uncomfortable to sleep in. This would be an ok bed if you were sleeping alone possibly, and I only say possibly. We are going back to a nice pillow top. Nothing against this particular bed, because it is a decent bed for the price, I just don't think memory foam is the way to go simply because of the "C" effect that it causes. However, the memory foam pillow that came with it was absolutely fantastic. I just don't think the success memory foam has in pillows translates to beds. I hope this helps.
I was a little apprehensive about ordering this item but I read so many good reviews, I figured why not? The mattress was delivered on time and not damaged by fed ex. That's a plus. Unboxing the unit was easy. Be careful when cutting open the plastic mattress cover. Lay unit on your box spring before cutting as once it starts to rise and fill itself in, the mattress becomes hard to handle.
I found the mattress very comfy and surprisingly I slept very well the first night. The foam pillow was a plus. I read negative reviews regarding this foam pillow but I have no complaint. The pillow I currently have is so soft that my head sinks so far in that I have to fold the pillow in half there for sleeping with my head tilted all night , almost always waking up with neck pain. I woke up the first morning feeling super. No neck pain. No sleepless night as always. My husband however said he sank and felt as if he was touching the box spring itself. I am 5'3" and weight 150. He is 5'7" and weighs 250. I am hoping the mattress had time to expand itself while we were at work. I'll see how it goes for him tonight.
The only thing I found weird about this mattress is that the length of the foam mattress I'd about 2" longer then my queen box spring. And about an 1" wider. Must be defect or the company that made this mattress has different queen sizes they abide by. Not sure. No worries though. I'm not bothered by it. Beside the extra length, there is no complaint on my end. I would recommend.
Two twins ( for a King) easier to change sheets, lighter, arrived together. Opened, laid them out in spare bedroom to " air out and to regain its form". Comfy nights sleep that night and has been since. Been about 3 weeks, great results. Extra foam pillows were a huge plus. Thought I'd miss my plush pillow top. Nope. Paid big money, lasted about 4 years before side broke down, had no support. ( not very big people). Will never use pillow top or big name brand again. They don't " make them like they used to"!
Husband is severely arthritic. Never sleeps thru the night. Oh my, how life has changed for both of us. Full nights sleep and restful at that.
Would highly recommend anyone try these products. Had questions, promptly answered, by Dan. Very impressed. Thanks, guys.
This is the best mattress I have ever owned. I know people who spent a lot of money on memory foam mattresses and said that mine feels the same. It is very firm. I was not sure if I was going to like that the first night. But I woke up the next day feeling like I slept like a rock. I have been getting some of the best sleep ever and haven't been waking up in pain. It took some getting used to but now I can't imagine sleeping on anything else. The price and quality of this mattress cannot really be beat!!!! Also, I am using this with the sleep master platform bed frame and mattress foundation. One of the ones you do not need a box-spring for. It works great and was so inexpensive to piece this together.
Recommended for the quality at the affordable price. I found out about this mattress from an article on scoliosis. I was worry it will still be too soft for me but it actually has good support and was comfortable to sleep on.
Areas to improve:
Wish it has handles on the side. It is big, thick and heavy, was not easy to grab and adjust it after unpacking. It expands almost instantly.
The Queen size I got didn't quite fit my queen bed I got from ikea. It's a bit too long, didn't tuck in the frame...no big deal, just wondered why.
I would have given it a 5 but the box was in pretty bad shape by the time it got to me. It did get to me in 2 days it was light weight easy to get up to my room. I didn't smell anything weird when I cut the plastic off and it filled out pretty quickly. I was expecting a firmer support, but it's still extremely comfortable since day one my sleep has been better and my back is not as tense from before I don't toss and turn anymore the pillows are a nice bonus super comfortable I definitely recommend this product
I have to say my son was having back pain for a long time. His old mattress was only 3 years old. It was also expensive. One of the reason I didn't want to get him another mattress. He kept on with back pain, so I went online and research on mattresses. I came across RESORT SLEEP COOL MEMORY FOAM. I read all the reviews and I said " ok..let's give it a try. My son is so "HAPPY" I ordered the Resort Memory Foam. He's been sleeping very well on it. One of the things I noticed also, no ODOR!!! I am telling you I had memory foam mattress before and it smelled bad. This product had no strong ODOR or SMELL. Also the mattress goes on well on the bed. (platform). We are satisfied with RESORT SLEEP 10 inch Cool Memory Foam. One more thing, the mattress stay cool. I have good sheets on them, ...my son loves his bed!!
Mattress was folded in half then rolled and wrapped up tightly in an even a smaller box than my twin mattress bought separately from a different brand. Upon letting it aired and plumbed as instructed, disappointment hit! The mattress is extremely plush and NOTHING as described. I weight 105lbs. and I am sunk in about 1/2 way down on the mattress. I tried to turn to my side and my arm goes numb after less than 4 minutes. I am sunk badly into the mattress no matter the position - my back or side. Quite surprised to see this mattress gotten awesome reviews! Is this a case of defective product? I can't chance it and just return it. Can't risk a bad night sleep and frequent visit to the chiropractor.
I purchased this mattress based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews and because of its affordability. The mattress is firm yet comfortable. I had bought a foam topper in anticipating I would want a little more softness and have since discovered I don't need it it at all. Even the pillow is nice. I am very pleased. I would make this purchase again.
What a great mattress, and at a fraction of the price of name brands. A bit firm, but that's comfortable to me.
Came compressed in a plastic wrap, once the wrap is removed it expands to full size in no time.
Also, there is no nasty rubber smell like other memory foam mattresses I've had.
Works great with my adjustable bed base.
The free pillow is very nice too.
Just got this delivered yesterday and I am letting it fill to its correct size as I write this so I haven't slept on it yet. I have added a photo of what it looked like when it was delivered yesterday. Also the smell that people are talking about when you unpack it is there but it isn't very strong at all. The free pillows are a complete joke they feel as though the are filled with popcorn..not even suitable as a dog pillow. Very fast delivery.
I have 3 nights of sleep on it, wake up virtually pain free less and less every day, I was having to take a sleeping medication but since this mattress I will wean myself off of them..... crazy I know .... but close to being magic..... my wife suffers from RA and other medical conditions she too has had a wonderful sleep experience
Literally, the best sleep I've had since a back surgery in 08!!! I'm usually up and hurting at around 3am, I've been sleeping until 7 since this mattress was delivered!!!! WOW, IM INCREDIBLY HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE!!!!! Ultra fast delivery and awesome price. I can't ask for anything more!!!!
This Mattress is the best choice, replacing a sleep by number that is over 20 yrs old. I wish I would've bought a long time ago. The price is definatly right.
I'm sleeping better now. The mattress seemed a bit firm at first, but conformed to our bodys shortly. No pressure points at all.
We have been using this for about a week now, and would recomend to anyone interested in a good nites sleep.
I live with chronic illness and the pressure points in a regular mattress cause me pain. I could immediately tell the difference on the first night. Well worth the price and i wish i had thought of it sooner. More than pleased with this product.
This mattress is nice, came in a box had a little damage to the box but the mattress was just fine, everything matteress an pillow ultra comfortable really nice! Expanded to the right size an all. First night was great slept really well and I think its all gonna get better and better! Happy with quality an all around look feel comfort of the mattress.
This arrived yesterday, and I can't be more pleased with the quality and comfort. It took shorter than expected to expand (I received it in the afternoon and slept on it that night). There was absolutely NO odor at all from the mattress. The only a article with a slight odor is the bonus pillow that came with it (seriously - it does expand - not as fast as the mattress - give the pillow time). I purchase the Amazon basics sheets with this an seriously had the best sleep in a long time. It's not soft, but it's not firm. I consider it in the middle, which is what I was looking for. This has a quality of mattresses four times the price (I've been shopping for a while). The cover (comes on it, will zip off) is really convenient for washing. Go for it!
My old pillow-top mattress was nearly 13 years old and it was time for a change. I had friends who'd bought foam mattresses and one who had bought one of these and recommended it to me. Don't let the price fool you, this is an incredible buy! They sell these on their own site for much more but here, at this price, you don't get the 100 Night Trial.
Everything was as the seller described. It arrived in its (relatively) small box. I removed it, put it on the box spring and slept on it that night. It has taken a little getting used to because it's not "springy" like the old, traditional mattress was. It's also a little firmer than some of the reviews give it credit for but that was a good thing for me. On a firmness scale of 1 - 10, I'd give it a 7-8 but it's not "hard" at all. The foam really does give nicely for hips and elbows and whatnot. It also sleeps cool, a must for me. I would recommend this highly!
For the money, it is an amazing bed. They shipped Prime to Hawaii.Which was rare for queen beds on Amazon. I paid over 2k once for a bed from those high end stores. This one is better. Went to bed with back pain last night. Woke up with none. My opinion is that this is a medium softwise. Love it so far. Photo is before deployment. Buy this bed.
The mattress is very comfortable and conforms to your body as you sleep, which really helps reduce the pain and discomfort in my pressure points. I've tried other memory foam mattresses in the past, but they do not do a very good job of supporting me and eventually, I just ended up returning them. This mattress is definitely a keeper.
The Resort Sleep Mattress is doing a great job with both support and comfort, and it doesn't make me feel stifled during warm weather. And as a double bonus, this mattress costs a fraction of what I paid for my other memory foam mattresses and traditional mattresses as well...this was shocking, but certainly a welcomed surprise. And I love the pillow too, very nice. I highly recommend this mattress for those who value a pain-free, blissful night's sleep.
We've had a Sleep Number bed for many years and it's been a great mattress. I had to add a topper because I have Fibromyalgia, then recently my husband has had major problems with a bulging disc and the SN bed didn't help his back at all. He couldn't get it blown up to be firm enough for his back, and often woke up in the mornings unable to walk. We started looking into getting a different mattress, and I've been reading reviews on every different kind. I just couldn't bring myself to spend thousands of dollars on a mattress that may not work. I decided to give the Resort a try after reading all the reviews, especially ones about people with back problems and who talked about the fact they didn't feel excessive heat as my husband tends to give off lots of heat and we live in the South. So far he loves the mattress. His back has been great, he's slept really well, doesn't feel hot and sweaty, and he's thrilled with the way the mattress sleeps. I've felt comfortable, so we're pleased. I'll be back in six months or so to give you an update as we've only had the mattress a few days.
This mattress is so awesome! We have been using memory foam since I met my husband almost 10 yrs ago and discovered the mattress in his truck was a cheap spring mattress. He had no idea he had other choices. At the time, I was merely looking to change it to a foam mattress but then discovered memory foam toppers. He could not believe the difference! Since then the industry has upgraded to integrated memory foam in with dense foam such as this one. This 10" is 2" deeper than our last one and yes, it is that much better. Highly recommend.
Coming from a guy with Rheumatoid Arthritis, this bed is the greatest thing ever. Not the greatest bed ever, but the greatest thing ever. I sleep like a baby and wake up without joint pain. It's extremely comfortable, regulates my temperature nicely, and provides firm support that holds you in comfortable positions throughout the night. The bed expanded in about 12 hours, and has not sunken in at all over the last few weeks of use. Assuming this holds up, I may be ordering another bed for my college room as well.
This review is being written after less than a week so durability is one aspect that I cannot comment on. That being said, the mattress has exceeded my expectations. It is medium to firm and conforms to your body giving excellent support to all parts yet you have the comfortable feel that you are on a flat surface.
My wife and I slept well on it and this might be one of the most comfortable mattress we have been on.
Set up was easy but a clear label indicating which side of the mattress should be up would have been helpful especially with the king size. Although the mattress appears to inflate in one hour or less, we allowed it more than 24 hours to insure that it was as close to 100% expanded as possible.
The mattress is priced very reasonably and the added pillow was a nice bonus but one pillow for a king sized mattress is not enough for two. ( Suggestion to Resort Sleep include 2 and adjust the price or place a coupon in the box so customers can order another one if they like.)
Over all I would rate this amazing mattress 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone seeking a new mattress to improve their sleep.
I have scoliosis and googled a bed that would be good for my spine. This bed popped up on my searches, so with the price, I decided to give it a try. I have been sleeping on a pillow top mattress for years, knowing that a soft bed is not good for my back. I received this in the mail FAST and got a little nervous when taking it out of the vacuum sealed package. As it opened, I almost started thinking this was another thing I wasted my money on....but I had to give it a shot since I was already in too deep. It came with a pillow that some have reviewed as flimsy and no good, but I slept on it anyway. I woke up renewed. My neck wasn't in pain. I rolled right out of bed, after being sick for a week, and I finally had some energy. I was the most rockin nurse at work that day, others even made comments about how quick I was moving! This old lady (early 40's) just needed a new bed! I love it and will be getting my kid one very soon. Also, I usually wake up a little sweaty with that old bed, but not this one. Love it! Now I just need to get a platform for it, since right now it is sitting on top of my old box spring.
UPDATE 12/18/2015 - The only reason I did not give this mattress a one-star rating is that it seems to be well made and the description did state it is a 7 to 8 on a 10-point scale (1 being the softest and 10 being the hardest). But in my opinion, it is more like a 9.5!
I really tried to like this mattress and I gave it a couple weeks before I left my initial review (which was a more positive one at the time). I thought maybe I just needed some more time to get used to the firmness of the bed, as it is firmer than anything I have slept on before (including my last memory foam mattress that I used for several years, which was soft and supportive) But then a few days later my troubles really began. I started waking up in the mornings with horrible lower back pain. The pain would subside later in the day, only to return once I slept on this mattress again. I tried a topper on it and thought that would take care of the problem, but then I started getting aches and pains in other areas of my body. I decided to remove the topper and try sleeping again just on the mattress. I could not get comfortable no matter what position I was in. I got on my side, with a pillow between my legs, and dozed off. I woke up a short time later with an aching shoulder, hip, and leg on the side I was lying on.
Today, I went to a store and purchased a new mattress because I just could not stand to sleep on this one any longer. It was hurting me badly!
There are a lot of positive reviews on this mattress, which is what helped me make the decision to purchase it. I don't understand how it can have such positive feedback, because it is the worst mattress I have ever slept on. And I like a firm mattress! But I don't want to sleep on something that is like sleeping on a slab of concrete. Memory foam is supposed to relieve pressure points. But this mattress seems to push back against you with all its might!
This mattress has broke me from ever again wanting to purchase another bed online. From now on, I want to try it before I buy it. Now I am stuck trying to get rid of this thing. There is no way I can roll it back up and ship it back for a refund. The seller did offer a full refund when I messaged about my experience with the bed. But again, I cannot deal with the hassle and expense of shipping it back. I will have to try and sell it locally.
This is our second purchase of this mattress. First was a guest for our spare bedroom and now a king for the master at our vacation hone. I expect to purchase a third for our home in Indianapolis soon. Very pleased as you could guess. Glad I did not waste my money purchasing a more expensive brand.
As a followup..We did purchase a third Resort sleep 10 inch memory foam mattress for a home in Indianapolis I have to say just like the first two I now turn I think only because of habit, not because I am sore. We have two more bedrooms and I expect my total purchase will probably be a total of five mattresses! Great product great service fast delivery couldn't expect anything better.
Bought this matress a month ago...at 1st it was really hard to get used to...our old matress was a pillow top and I loved it but it was starting to sink in the middle and make horrible noises getting in and out of bed...with my new matress no noise..no sinking..and I don't get up hurting in the morning...it is a very very very firm matress...so far so good...not getting 5 stars because it is a little too firm but for the price you can't beat it
I bought this queen mattress and the 14" Zinus bed frame for our son's college apartment. He has a bad back due to a car accident, sports injuries, stress and may have some arthritis. He had a horrible time sleeping on the mattress in his previous furnished apartment.
He is a big guy, 6', 200 lbs and his body temp runs high. He says it is the most comfortable bed he has slept on and it does NOT sleep hot (can be an issue with some latex mattresses). He loves it. His roommate also needed a mattress, tried it and ordered one for himself as well.
By not needing a box spring, it is one less thing to buy and gives you valuable storage space beneath, which is so needed in a college apartment. We did order an anti-slip rug pad (to go under the mattress and on top of the frame) to help the mattress not shift on the bed frame, as the frame does not have any side rails to keep the mattress in place.
This was purchased as a gift for my daughter. She handled bringing the mattress and setting it up on a bed frame by herself. This is no small achievement when you're five ft two. She earned that superb first nights sleep! She reports that it is very comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing a second one soon.
There was a very slight chemical smell on set up but it faded quickly.
It's pretty neat to order a bed online and have it shipped directly to your front door. It's crazy how they can compress such a large bed to such a small size. It rolled out fine and popped up to size. When I first laid on it I was worried because it was as hard as a rock. You do sink in and I don't have any complaints. I have been sleeping on the bed fora couple of weeks now. I'm a side sleeper and have sciatica pain so I'm really sensitive to pressure zones. I haven't had any issues with pain or discomfort.
This mattress is very comfortable. I have been sleeping on spring mattresses for 60 years and I was hesitant to buy a mattress online and a foam mattress. So glad I finally made the decision to purchase because I love this mattress and it the price made it a great deal!! Soft yet firm enough to make for a very comfortable sleep.You won't regret making this purchase!!
This arrived very fast and once I took it out of the box, it didn't take more than an hour or two to take full form. It is a bit firm, so if that's what you're looking for, this is your bed. It also came with a bonus memory foam pillow, which I wasn't expecting so maybe I missed that somewhere, but I love that too. Also pretty firm. There was no smell upon opening the box which I believe I read in some reviews that they smelled something but the odor went away after a day or two. I did not experience any of that. I slept on the bed a few hours after opening. It's very good quality and I would recommend it.
Love this bed. It has the right combination of comfort. I prefer a firm mattress, and this meets that expectation. My daughter (no back issues yet!) prefers a softer mattress, and she too thinks it is perfect. Can't explain that, but that's the truth. I bought the mattress for a guest room but we each took a night to try it out, so I fully expect it to be perfect for any guest. Also, there is no smell whatsoever upon opening. I had lots of questions, and the customer service was impeccable. I received responses almost immediately whether I sent my email at 10:00 a.m. or 10:00 p.m. And the price can't be beat! I tried one mattress that was twice the price and not nearly as comfortable. And the price gets even better when you factor in the bonus memory foam pillow. I recommend this mattress and this company enthusiastically!
I am a two time buyer of the Resort Sleep Queen Memory Foam mattress and highly recommend it! I bought my first memory foam mattress for my home. I had been experiencing hip pain from my old mattress and after sleeping on the Resort Sleep mattress my pain went away. The price is great for what you get. I had looked at more expensive Tempurpedic ones, but could not bear the high cost and the uncertainty if I would like a memory foam mattress or not. Based on the reviews and price of the Resort Sleep mattress I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did. I will never go back to sleeping on a pillow top/coil spring mattress again. I was so pleased with the mattress that I bought another one for my parents guest room. At home my mattress is set up on plywood and at my parents it is on an old box spring and must admit that I prefer the plywood setup.
I needed to get a foam mattress for a small city apartment with a narrow spiral staircase. I ended up getting this Resort Sleep mattress in a pinch because the foam mattress I had ordered from another company didn't get the delivery day right. Essentially, I needed a foam mattress delivered in under 24 hours and Resort Sleep was able to make this happen. It was inexpensive so I figured if it were bad, I'd just get another mattress later. Well, it is probably one of the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on! I have 2 high-end mattresses in my home that cost over $1500 each and this Resort Sleep mattress is WAY more comfortable than either of them! Amazingly, it's not even on a box spring! (Just on some bunky boards.) I am middle-aged woman with a wonky back so I'm not one of those people who can sleep on anything, either. I am actually going to give away one of my fancy mattresses at home and replace it with a Resort Sleep mattress.
I can't say enough good things about this mattress! The packaging was perfect and manageable, even for someone with a smaller frame and some neck problems. I'm a stomach and side sleeper, and for the first time in my life, I do not find myself tossing and turning to relieve pressure on the usual areas, such as ankles, hips, and shoulders. My neck feels better than it has in years. I tend to sleep very warm, and this mattress seems to alleviate that. It inflated beautifully within the first 24 hours, and there was no disagreeable smell. I love this mattress so much, that I have recommended it to quite a few people that I know are shopping around.
Firm and slightly conforms to your body. The paper that came with the mattress said to give it 24 hours to puff up and take shape. I let it sit on the floor for two days as it didnt look like it was fully formed in the 24 hours. There is a slight odor that has gone away after a few days. Im told this is typical of these types of mattresses. . Wasnt expecting this kind of quality for the price. Pleasant surprise.
It came with a free pillow which my cat took over while it was puffing up. Since I didnt plan on using it anyway, he now has a comfy place to sleep too.
