Denver mattress was originally a big player in the waterbed industry, riding the 'wave' of the boom until the late 1980s. With time, Denver Mattress adapted to offer a variety of mattresses for children and adults, opening the first Denver Mattress retail store in 1995. They offer factory direct prices and online offerings if you don't find yourself in Colorado. They have an emphasis on plushtop and offer innerspring, hybrid, and memory foam mattresses.
Ethan Allen sells their own brand of hybrid and foam mattresses at their retail and online locations. At well over $1,000 for a queen, their prices are only competitive against high end name brands. They have multiple firmness options in their lineup and most customers have described their mattresses as comfortable. Some customers had issues with the durability of some of the mattresses.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Ethan Allen in this match up!
Some customers were very happy with their new mattress, but others reported problems. Despite those that had a good experience, overall these mattresses have lower than average satisfaction from customers. Read on if you are considering buying for more information on the mattresses.
Support isn't the same as firmness. Great support is when a mattress cradles the hips and shoulders to align the spine. Sadly, these mattresses have some mixed reviews when it comes to support. Most customers are happy with the support right after purchase, but some folks felt like support was lacking over the long term.
For those that like the lay close to the side of their mattress or have mobility issues, even edge support is very important. For most, these mattresses do a fine job with edge support at the beginning, but some may find that it changes over time.
Getting a mattress which has lasting comfort is what buyers are after. Everyone is hopeful in finding a bed that is just as comfortable ten years from now as it was day one. Sadly, not all sleepers agree that these mattresses are durable, and some have had issues with longevity after a short time. If you are thinking about buying and using full time, read through the customer reviews and return policies to make sure that you are secure in your purchase.
Sleeper reviews can be hard to understand from a high level -- especially with some companies moderating reviews. These mattresses, sadly, don't get the highest reception from sleepers. There are still folks that love their mattresses, but there are many others with complaints. Make sure to read on to figure out if they will work for you.
In terms of lasting support, these mattresses have mixed reviews. Some have described them as supportive and report being comfortable, but others weren't able to get comfortable. If you have a heavier body type than average, these mattresses may not work 100% for your body.
Edge support is a key item for anyone that likes to sit on the side of their mattress. Some may not find these mattresses to be evenly supportive along the sides and may dip more than usual.
Everyone wants to find a mattress that will last over a decade, and when we instead buy a mattress that causes us discomfort after only a year, we feel cheated. However, finding lasting comfort nowadays is a real challenge. With more choices than ever, many companies are sacrificing quality to make a quick dollar. When it comes to these mattresses, some sleepers had issues with durability. 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.
Mattress broke down in less than six months. Am 65 years old and never had a mattress sag to a point that I needed a body pillow to stay in the bed. Worst ever.View More Reviews
The biggest draw for me was that they offer really kick-ass financing. You can do deals like 4 years no interest, which makes it manageable to upgrade your furniture. I would say that if you're in the market for a mattress, Denver Mattress is a good place to start!
In 2003 my girlfriend and I noticed severe sagging in the middle within 12 months of purchasing a $800 mattress from this company. When we laid in it, we both rolled to the middle of the bed because the bed was like a valley. WE called and complained and a guy came out and measured it with a string across and said he didn't see any sagging. We laughed and asked him to please lie down in it. He refused and said it would not be covered and all they could offer was $50 credit towards a new one. Total BS. A mattress should last 10-20 years (20 if you get the kind that you can flip and sleep on both sides). This company is the worst mattress company in the world. Buyer beware.
My old mattress was from the 70s and I kept falling into the same body indentation every night. I decided to visit Denver Mattress for an upgrade because I'd heard good things and I didn't have thousands to blow on a mattress. I bought 'The Breckenridge' model and it was relatively inexpensive. Mattress + 2 pillows and a pad for $400.
The experience was painless. Blake, my sales person, was very helpful and friendly. He didn't try to up sell me and the transaction was fast. I was there maybe a total of 20 minutes. They had the mattress in stock and I drove home with it that day.
Now here's the problem. The mattress is so comfortable, I've had to increase the volume of my alarm clock three times. It's like sleeping on a magical cloud. I'm actually looking forward to finishing this review so I can GO TO BED!!!
Denver Mattress is GREAT!! We purchased a mattress from them and we had a few issues. Spoke to Jonathan @ the CO Blvd store and he was happy to help us with the issue. In the end we spent more $$ than planned but was happy that Denver Mattress was willing to help us out. Thank you Denver Mattress for putting faith back into Customer Service...
I wish I could say I love this mattress, but over time - and we've only owned ours two years - there is quite a bit of give to the mattress. I noticed this after only several months. I called the store to ask about this, and was told to measure the depression. It does not quite measure 1.5 inches, the amount required for the warranty. I can see my body depression when I go to make the bed each morning. I am not a large woman - five four and a hundred and thirty pounds. I believe some reviewers have called this depression like a nesting effect. I have joint issues and this lack of firmness is not good for them. Disappointed and can not recommend, tho I was very impressed with the sales staff. Not pushy at all, gave us lots of time to look over different mattresses. They do honor the initial swapping out policy if you are not happy within the first 30 days or so, as we have another mattress we purchased from them earlier.
I love this bed, I honestly don't understand the bad reviews on it! Let me tell you it takes a month or two to break in, when we first got it we thought we accidentally received the wrong mattress because it felt so different than the floor model. However, it's nice and soft, yet supportive at the same time! Many days I end up at the edge of the bed and I don't feel like I'm going to fall off (it's great), it maintains support! Also when someone gets into bed you can barley feel it, it's almost like the bed has shocks! Also- it's an excellent value, I feel we got an awesome bed for the price. We almost bought a bed that was twice as expensive (from another company), but luckily for us that bed was out of stock and I feel lucky we stumbled on this bed!
My husband purchased this mattress in 2006 before deploying. It stayed at his mother's house, unused for 2 years. Upon returning home from overseas and meeting me, it finally came out of the box in 2008. We have LOVED this mattress up until about a year ago. There are obvious dips and ridges, it lists to one side as if the padding is gone, and turning it 180 degrees no longer helps. We both started noticing that we can't sleep well; tossing and turning most nights. We wake up more tired than we started and with sore muscles. My husband called the store he originally purchased from but was told the warranty isn't valid for 'age related issues' and that we were welcome to purchase a new mattress instead. Unfortunately, we have not found a new mattress we love as much as this one but the money involved, for a mattress that is suppose to last 15 years, is a lot. Be cautioned, you will only get to love this mattress for half its 'life expectancy' and then you will need to get a new one.
We bought this mattress back in 2012. It started nesting around the 2 year mark even though we did the required turning. It was comfortable until it started breaking down. The edges are pushed out on both sides and it has deep impressions in it. Denver mattress however is a great place to get a new one. Just make sure you lower your expectations on the warranty as the Doctors choice will not last close to what they say.
I've had this mattress for just over 2 years. Just me sleeping on a king size bed. I have turned it (not flipped since you cannot turn it over) about every 6 months but where is sleep is like a pocket and you cannot see it but you can feel it when you lie in it. I try to sleep on my back but my back and hips are killing me every day when I get up due to no support there anymore. I spent over $600 on this mattress and already need to replace it. Very disappointed in this. Should have gone with very firm and maybe it would be just right now. Being in pain is not worth this. If I had known this before, I would have purchased something else.
We bought our Doctors Choice plush set over 10 years ago and we have loved it since the first perfect nights sleep we had on it. When we went into the store the sales person helped us pick the right mattress. My husbands is tall and I'm at least a foot shorter than him. He is an electrician and on his feet all day and I work in an office and sit all day. So we need different things from a matteress and this one works very well for both of us. We are going to buy a new one and pass our current one on to my daughter because it's still in great shape. Anytime we have not slept well we get new pillows and we sleep well again. It has never been the mattress. We will never sleep on anything else.
I thought that I had found a good mattress but after 3 months of sleeping on it, it's too soft and it's going to get worse. Most likely, I will have to buy another in a year. I cant believe all of these glowing reviews, I really hope they publish this because it is the Gods honest truth. If you are like me and 6ft, 220 lbs, you will hate this mattress. After 4 or 5 hours of laying on it, my back and core sinks to the extent that my head hurts. Doesent matter if I have one or two pillows and the worse part is I've been rotating the mattress every 2 weeks. It's not solid enough to provide the support for anyone over 200 lbs. if I had not driven from Pittsburgh to Erie pa in my truck to pick this up, I would have brought it back and got my money back already.
I would highly recommend looking elsewhere to purchase a mattress!
Purchased a king on clearance was told it still had a factory warranty, mattress sags bad! went in and was told I bought it on clearance so no warranty it is a plush top and just caving in, Im only 160lb and my other half is only 130 so if you buy one plan on using it for a guest room,they are not built with good foam.
We ave purchased the set of Doctors Choice Plush. Purchased by calling and received excellent help from the Representative. We bought this set because of the high reviews based by Consumer reports. Have not received it yet but we are certain it is of high quality as stated by consumer.
My wife and I bought the Doctors Choice Plush Queen after realizing how poorly we were sleeping. We were surprised how the sleep comfort test really helps pick the mattress and pillow system. We also opted for the ErgoMotion base. Love the Zero Gravity position for a restful nights sleep.
I am very pleased with the customer service I received at the Broadway store. I had purchased the Breckenridge euro-top bed and had back and neck pain the first night I slept on it. I went back to the store asking for help in returning the bed and Levi made the exchange very easy. He suggested the DC plush mattress and boy am I glad he did. 1st night I slept on the bed I woke up pain free, No lower back pain or neck pain. I would recommend this bed to anyone who has back pain. I cant wait to go to bed!!.
We've always purchased our mattresses from Denver Mattress and recently needed to buy two new mattress sets. We returned to Denver Mattress once again for our purchase because of the great service, the great quality and the reasonable prices.
I've bought 4 of the Doctor's Choice Plush for my home over the years. Holds up really well.
I would like to say by far I love this mattress. I needed something to comfort my back due to working long hours and having severe back pain. I have had no problems comfort wise. But after about 8 months it had gotten a little wore down from sleeping on it not much though just a slight difference. I only sleep on it at night time though. The comfort is great but the value and quality of it is in the middle due to getting wore out quickly. I would recommend.
We purchased a Doctors Choice Plush mattress and boxspring just over 8 years ago. It came with a 15 year warranty. After about 5 years, a spring ripped through the side of the mattress! We exchanged it for a new one since it was still under warranty. Now we've had the replacement for about 3 years and the mattress is saggy and not supportive. It's very uncomfortable, can't sleep through the night, wake up sore and stiff. We have done everything right (rotating, have the matching boxspring, a proper frame). Unfortunately, it seems to be pretty poor quality, so I cannot recommend this mattress. I'm hoping we can work something out with Denver Mattress, because this mattress should have years of use left.
We have had a Doctor's Choice for 11 years and it is just as comfortable today as it was when we bought it. I has a broken spring and they are delivering a warranty replacement soon. Great service! They take care of you after the sale. We shop Denver Mattress exclusively. We also purchased a second Doctors Choice mattress for our guest room
This mattress felt like heaven for approximately 5 months. By month 11 we were sleeping in our own little pods and there was a huge lump in the middle. Now we are at 15 months and wake up sore every morning and can hardly sleep. Very poor quality and durability. Do not buy this mattress.
I bought a side sleeper online based on Consumer Reports recommendation. I paid $743, which included a $255 delivery and set up fee. The mattress (Plush) is as hard a a rock. I tried it for two night and I could only sleep 2 to 3 hours because of hip pain. I called the Company to return the mattress two days after receipt of it. They told me I would have to pay a return freight charge of $235 to return it. So, of my original $743 payment, I would be receiving a total of $253 for my credit. So, it cost me $500 for about five hours sleep.
Very disappointed. Splurged and went with the foam/spring mattress. If it had been free I'd still hate it. It's easily the most uncomfortable mattress I've ever slept on, my legs, lower back, upper back, shoulders ache. Never had this issue with Sealy's and sorry I strayed away from something I knew was good. We are still within the 120 day warranty but company charges a ridiculous $50 delivery fee to exchange each time. More money to get another awful mattress? Seriously do not shop here.
We ordered the Denver Mattress Athlete's Gold memory foam, 2 twin XL beds (split king) with adjustable bases. We have had them for 2 months now and couldn't be happier! No more stiffness or backaches in the morning! Yippee!!
Kelly K., the manager, was fantastic, very knowledgeable, extremely helpful, very personable and had just a great personality! He approached us very quickly after a friend and I got there and was so easy to engage in a very low key way. He was not pushy at all and informed us of some differences and key factors in a various mattresses. I have not received delivery of my Denver Mattress, yet, however, I am super excited about getting it. My friend has a Denver Mattress already and loves it so I know it comes highly recommended! Plus - Kelly's personality and service is top-notch and so friendly! Go see Denver Mattress and ask for Kelly!!
Like many people, a back ache prompted me to buy a new mattress. After much research, I selected a bed offered by Ethan Allen and was willing to drive a long distance to purchase it. When the bed arrived at the local warehouse, I was told there would be approximately 7-10 days for delivery to my home. My back ache and sleep were worsening so I called the store and asked if there was any way to expedite the delivery; I didn't expect this special service but tried anyway. To my surprise, the store manager cut some red tape and had my bed delivered in two days. The bed is great, sleep is great, back ache gone. Thank you, Ethan Allen.View More Reviews
On 4/29/06, I ordered a mattress and box spring from Ethan Allen for $2,500. It was to last a lifetime. On 9/15/08, Ethan Allen replaced the set with the same item. Here it is, 1/2012, and the mattress sags so badly, I am forced to replace it again. What is my recourse with Ethan Allen for a partial rebate?
My husband and I purchased an Ethan Allen Bella Queen Mattress Set about one year ago. The disappointment is almost unbelievable! It is as though this is NOT the same bed we tested in the store. My husband, in particular, wanted this style of bed - not too much padding, but still enough padding to be comfortable. I actually wanted a big pillow top. However, I did try the bed in the store and thought it was comfortable. Once it was delivered, WOW! We were BOTH disappointed immensely. The mattress is the comfort and quality of a mattress set priced at $500 to $600. We have a very old Ethan Allen mattress (20+ years) and it never caved in, but had very little padding as they were made then. We have rooms of furniture bought from them at that same time, and recently bought a 2nd bedroom set and are happy with the furniture that we bought then and now.
Worst Mattresses Ever! My wife and I used to love Ethan Allen. They had awesome designs that we loved. We decided to fully furnish our new house from them. Overall, we were happy with the result except for some issues that varied between annoying (minor) to outright unacceptable (major).
Minor issues: 1) The surface of the corner tables in the main living room were damaged because of the lamps that we put on them. The lamps were from Ethan Allen as well and they were equipped with some form of pads at the bottom to avoid scratching the surface. That pad actually stuck to the surface and when lifting up the lamp, the paint was pulled out from the surface! Needless to say, it was an expensive piece. It happened to both corner tables. 2) The main dresser and bedside small ones we bought for the master bedroom looked great. Except that after a while, the drawers won't open and close properly. When we contacted EA, they told us it must be because of the weather conditions of where we live (hot and humid, although the A/C is running all the time).
Major issue: The memory foam mattresses we bought (qty. 2) were the worst mattresses we ever slept on in our lives. And it wasn't only us; any guest who slept over in the guest room gave the same feedback. They are just horrible. They cause back pain and neck pain. They bulge and form valleys and mountains! Upon calling them, they advised us to give them some time to get used to them! We tried. We never got used to them - $4,000 down the drain. Do not buy mattresses from Ethan Allen.
Don't buy your mattresses from them, they do not honor their warranty!!!
Ethan Allen's furniture designs are beautiful and of great quality. However, I am really disappointed in your service and will not return to furnish the rest of our home with your designs. Having spent a rather significant amount of money on furniture for our daughter's room, this past May, I am surprised that we are still waiting for her bed to arrive this October. The initial delivery was set for June. I took the day off of work to wait for the delivery at the set appointment time. An hour prior to delivery my husband was contacted that the bed arriving was damaged and a new one would need to be made but the rest of the furniture would be delivered. Since we had a delivery appointment for June and a delivery set, we made room for the new furniture. The new dresser, end tables and mirror were dropped off and our daughter's mattress was now on the floor. What was a one night situation, has now been 4 months. Today, you finally arrived to install her bed. My husband took the day off of work to meet the delivery. Too bad your team didn't bring the screws needed to install the headboard or the frame...REALLY? To even add more insult- your team said it was at the warehouse and would probably NOT make it back again today. We have taken two days off of work, had our daughter without a bed for 4 months and making it happen today was not even considered. So sorry Ethan Allen, we were inconveniencing you.
We have been buyers of Ethan for a long time. Our entire apartment in NYC was furtnished by Ethan Allan. Our home in PA is mostly Ethan Allen as well. our last experience with KOP store was to buy a mattress for our Ethan Allen bed. The mattress turned out to be not of good quality. There are visible depressions on the mattress where we sleep. We called the store and their "technician" came by and opined that the depressions are not deep enough for the mattress to be covered under warranty. I will not buy anything from Ethan Allen any more, their warranty is worthless.
In November, I was on the hunt for a good quality, nice looking, durable & comfortable sofa bed that could withstand the wrath of two young kids and a heavy husband when the wife snored too load. I went to many, many furniture stores throughout the bay area, including an initial visit here w/ Leda Lindsay. With all the research and browsing I did, I still ended up returning to Ethan Allen. I based it on the quality of what i was getting, along w/ the price (it was the last day of their sales event). I purchased the Bennett Queen Sleeper and air mattress w/ the Maxwell Nutmeg fabric. The quality of the sofa frame, mattress frame and fabric were evident. And Leda was very patient and answered many questions during both visits, even made herself available in-between other customers. I've had the sofa 6 months now. I'm very pleased w/ it and the performance of the fabric thus far. I would definitely recommend this sleeper sofa and fabric combination for anyone looking for a quality sofa bed w/ kids. Leda was a great help w/ my purchase decision.
We went in to check out mattresses. The entrance is pretty formal so I checked in with reception. She to me to feel free to look around and that the sales lady would be right with us. It's set up like a bunch of rooms. You walk from one complete room to another. The sales lady showed me several mattresses and they had a lot of literature on each one. She seemed as though she wasn't very knowledgable about the beds but was more than willing to get the answers that she was unsure of. Unthinking he was just new. The produces are nice but it takes a month to get a new mattress.
Like many people, a back ache prompted me to buy a new mattress. After much research, I selected a bed offered by Ethan Allen and was willing to drive a long distance to purchase it. When the bed arrived at the local warehouse, I was told there would be approximately 7-10 days for delivery to my home. My back ache and sleep were worsening so I called the store and asked if there was any way to expedite the delivery; I didn't expect this special service but tried anyway. To my surprise, the store manager cut some red tape and had my bed delivered in two days. The bed is great, sleep is great, back ache gone. Thank you, Ethan Allen.
Horrible !! I'm Sorry for anyone who falls victim to these scammers . They sell used furniture as new . They tell you furniture Is new , But they sell you model of the show room floor . They sell used mattress . As new . If anyone has purchased a mattress from them and it is off white kind of yellow with a Malibu logo on it your mattress is used . Also the furniture they sell if partly defective or they by furniture from other manufactures show room floors that are used as sell as new the last thing I will say is this I witnessed them with my own eyes sell a couch and a mattress that somebody dropped off next to the store trash can to a customer that came in saying that they were in need of a couch and a mattress and then they had very little money and this is what they sold them. I refuse to deliver the couch and Mattress so how was fired two days later
Fantastic furniture store with high end products at a very reasonable price. The thing I like about Ethan Furniture is that it's not a huge chain like "Living Spaces" so you'll get much more personalized service. Employees are very helpful and can answer any questions you have on their furniture. Great assortment of couches, tables, bed frames and much more. I ordered a couch set, dining room table, bed frame and mattress from them. They took care of the delivery and the delivery guys were very professional and put together the furniture pieces perfectly. I love the couch and take naps regularly on it! If you're looking for a quality furniture, exceptional service and a "one-stop-shop" experience, look no further than Ethan Furniture!
My wife and I spent thousands of $$$ on our son's entire Ethan Allen bedroom set (Bed Frame, Headboard, Mattress, Night Table, Book Shelf Cabinet, Closet, and Desk w/ Shelves) from this location. Admittedly, that was several years ago but, considering the reason we bought it in the first place (name recognition) and what we actually got (poor quality), and the fact that I am continually reminded of the bad deal we got every time I look at it, try to fix the hardware (again and again), or see how easily the wood stains by anything put on it (it's painted white), I had to finally share my tale w/ the rest of those who spent a lot for subpar furniture. We certainly were misled by the brand name and gave up going back to the saleroom in trying to address our issues w/ the furniture.
