Gold Bond mattresses have been around since 1899 and are sold in retailers across the country. They specialize in innerspring mattresses and have a wide variety of options and mattress lines with foam and latex included in the comfort layers. Most find their mattresses comfortable, but some have complaints about the durability and customer service.
Zotto is a disruptive mattress in a box company. It crafts an all-foam mattress with extra cooling versus many other mattress brands. Its 4 layer design with extra cooling in the top layer puts it at a pressure-point relieving medium firmness. Customers find comfortable overall, but some had issues with the material value and the durability.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Zotto in this match up!

Sleepers don't always feel excellent about these mattresses. Some customers were happy with the way their new mattresse made them feel, but others reported being uncomfortable. One of these may work for you, but it makes it difficult to figure out. Read on below to learn more and to hear from customers to see if one will work for you.
All sleepers need a supportive mattress and especially back and stomach sleepers. Even side sleepers need gentle support to make sure their spines are aligned. For most, these mattresses are above average in terms of support. That said, some others didn't like the support so if you are heavier, make sure that your selection is right for you.
This mattress does well for most in terms of providing edge support. Some customers weren't entirely satisfied with the edge support.
Getting a mattress which has lasting comfort is what buyers are after. We all really want to find a bed that will be comfy a decade or more later. That said, not all customers rate these mattresses very well on durability and some have had issues over only a short horizon. If you are considering using as your full time mattress, make sure to review the specs against your body type to make sure it will work for you.
Most customers reviewed these mattresses highly and felt comfortable in their beds. Some customers, though, didn't feel as positively. If one of these is one your list, make sure to read our analysis below.
Having a supportive mattress is essential for having a good night's sleep. Most like the feel of this mattress for the first few months, but there are some who have found the long term support lacking. Check out the mattress specifications to make sure that it fits your body type.
Edge support is important to most folks and makes it easy to get in and out of bed. These mattresses are generally well regarded on edge support, but some may experience dips.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In tests that measure the density and supportiveness of the mattresses, there is initial support throughout the mattress is fairly even for most sleepers. That said, there are some that have experienced issues with support over time.
Finding a mattress that is highly durable can save you loads of money. But as companies compete for profits, everything from clothes to mattresses wears out faster. Customers have mixed feelings about the durability of these mattresses. Each bed is different so it may last years for you, but others may not be so lucky. Make sure to read more about these before purchasing.
I purchased a mattress about 5 years back and have been nothing but satisfied. I've also referred a few friends who are equally satisfied with the service and products.View More Reviews
If I could give this company a negative star rating, I would. We spent $1000 on a Gold Bond mattress February 2013. We noticed the bed was sagging in April 2014. Prior to this, we flipped the mattress as recommended by the company. Even the edge support sags! After contacting the company we bought the mattress from, they sent an employee to our house to 'measure' the amount of sag and take pictures. This info was sent to Jack Balsey (sp?) who is the sales rep in our area. Since reporting the claim in 6/2014, we have been given nothing but the run around. Nothing has been fixed or offered as a replacement. I have had to go to the doctor for back problems which have been exacerbated by the lack of support of this mattress. I am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of the mattress as well as the lack of customer service Gold Bond has offered.
It is disappointing that you do not stand behind your product. I am referring to collapsed twin sized box spring. We had to pay for the first return. When the same issue occurred, the company never addressed us. We had the second box spring for about 2 months. Be advised that this box spring belonged to a two year old. At the very least our concern should have been addressed. I give this company a very poor rating, on quality and customer service.
My mother in law purchased a gold bond classic 1 plush mattress for my son to go with his new bedroom set, my goodness it is comfortable! My husband has fallen asleep on it many times while reading to our kids. The mattress is now 3 years old and we have not had a single problem with it. I'm actually looking to purchase another one for my daughters set.
I've had this for several months and it still has an incense odor to it. It slides off our twin mattress. We aren't too happy with it but shipping it back would be too big a hassle so we're still airing it out!!
Love it, exactly what I wanted. It's good for people suffering from back problems due to using memory foams or other types of mattress. Coming from India, this is exactly how Indian mattresses are.
I so wish I found this mattress before. I struggled with sleep for years on foam and spring mattresses that are commonly filled with polluting chemicals and synthetic materials that collect electricity by pulling electrons out of your body... so you feel drained instead of rested. Do some research - it's called 'electron depletion.' It's either that or you feel like sleeping on metal on some of the 'raw' spring mattresses - also an uncomfortable feeling.
This mattress is simply perfect. I don't know how else to describe it. All my sleep problems are gone. It's just pure sleep without all the weird struggles.
Right at delivery the smell was strong horrible filling up the room. the foam mattress was something i couldnt be in the same room with. Goldbond didn't respond to my email about the smell. The lady who answered the phone never helped me. The retailer said he wold get the mattress 4 different times but the truck never came. 6 yrs later we unzip the mattress cover to see mold has grown from inside the mattress and is now reached the mattress exterior and cover. I've spoken with bob from goldbond and he is unwilling to help said if i had proof I contacted them sooner they could have helped. I emailed him proof I contacted him at the email that was available on the goldbond site at the time and he still refused to help he said he didn't want to lose money by helping it would be taking a loss on his end. He said i should have never received a mattress with any smell at all. Goldbond isnt a company that stands behind their products. He kept saying they were a family company but as a family company they should have helped. I have receipt, tags, pictures, proof of email i sent them right when the issue happened. I still want them to make this right.
I would have selected a zero rating but that was not a choice. Spent $1200 on a mattress I cannot even sleep on. Horrible customer service mattress was delivered in disgusting shape grease and ripped. It was taken back I was told it was recovered and restuffed. That is the furthest thing from the truth. It is so soft is all you feel are springs on the sides and in the mattress. I should have contacted the BBB. Maybe I will...horrible mattress.
The bed is firm yet forms toy your body and it isn't too firm. I would say this bed is between medium firm and it arrived a week before expected very satisfied and would recommend this bed to others.!View More Reviews
10 stars here .
Finally an affordable high-quality memory foam bed! I've slept on a Tempur-Pedic for a month and loved it. And when it came time to buy one for myself, I found it way out of reach on a price point level. $4500 for a King Tempur-Pedic? I get it, they have to charge that much to support their advertising and retail stores, then pass that cost along to us the consumers. So that got my wheels spinning and I started researching their competition and WOW am I glad I did! There are many other companies out there that offer a very similar product, but without all of the big advertising costs. I just love a great deal when I can find one. I researched 4 competitors Leeza, Casper, Tuft and Needle and Zotto. It was all a little overwhelming at first. So I decided to call customer service at these companies. Kudos to Zotto for their customer service. They were awesome, no pressure, they just answered all my questions in detail so I can make an informed decision. After all they all seemed very similar. At the end I chose Zotto for their excellent service. I figured it didn’t matter anyway with the 100-day guarantee, but I've received my mattress for almost a month now and absolutely love it! Memory Foam mattresses are the way to go, especially with the new copper cooling technology that Zotto built into it's mattress. So comfortable, I love my bed now more than ever!
First off it is not 10" thick, 9 was the most I could stretch out of this. It's okay but so far nothing specially stands out, however they are wrong also saying it can be used without a box springs. Of course it can but before long you will notice sinking where your heaviest body parts lays. (usually your hips). Not too sure it's wont happen anyway. I think for $550., I could have done much better. Just saying check all your options before you buy.
"I love my new Zotto mattress, not sure where the name came from but, who cares this mattress rocks! I am a big guy and suffered for years sweating in my sleep. This mattress sleeps way cooler, I sleep for longer durations and don’t wake up looking like it rained in my bedroom. "
Third time is the charm! I tried two other bed in a box companies before finding the Zotto. I almost gave up on the idea but, I figured I’d try one more, man am I glad I did. No more sleepless nights tossing, and turning. Thanks Zotto!
My first online bed purchase, and we are very happy. This is by far the easiest, fastest, and most inexpensive mattress I have ever bought. I do not usually write reviews but we were just blown away by not only the service but the bed itself which is incredible. We love it, and have recommended it to our family members.
I never thought I had an issue with my bed. I just figured after years of tossing and turning a few times a night it was normal. I have been sleeping on this Zotto mattress for just about two weeks now, and I sleep through the night. I do feel a difference in my energy level, and stamina through the day. My only regret is I wish I had tried this out sooner.
Unfortunately this mattress didn't work for us - We slept on one at Thunder Valley and loved it but the one we got felt much different - the edges were kind of rounded and you just kind of fell out of the bed when you rolled over - and it kind of dipped down at the head area too -- and we were very hot sleeping on it -- The return experience was EXCELLENT however, so i would recommend them highly from a customer service aspect and give them 5 stars in that regard -- but the bed just did not work for us -
My daughter loves her new Zotto mattress. She said it's the best mattress that she's ever slept on. It delivered exactly when it was supposed to, and was so easy to setup.
I am very pleased with this product. I first slept on one at a hotel that uses them and certainly recommend it.
Love both of ours! We have a king and a twin - Super comfortable!
Great matress, it was a major step up from a 20 year old Serta so it's hard to give a good comparison. Since being on the zotto i wake up with ZERO back pain. I'm a heavier male at 260lbs and the bed is just great despite reading reviews that foam isnt well suited for my body type. I did notice 1 of my old pillows doesn't work well with the bed but my favorite memory foam pillow is great. I only gave 4 stars because the bed sleeps HOT! So i had to adjust my thermostat to 77 instead of 78 which wasnt a huge deal but very noticeable. I hadn't been on a memory foam bed before and have heard they sleep hot so this bed may actually sleep COOL compared to other memory foam matresses. All in all im very happy!
Zotto mattress is awesome. After reading several reviews and instructions on how to best set up your mattress, it was a breeze. We chose the Zotto after sleeping on one at Thunder Valley Casino and we had the best sleep. What I love best is that there's not a lot of movement in the mattress; so when we're getting in and out of bed; there isn't a lot of disturbance. Great buy, great sleep!
Best decision ever! We looked at over 20 brands. We read all the good and bad of each. Zotto just stuck out to us. We purchased 2 twin XL mattresses and an electric adjustable bed frame. The mattresses were unrolled and slept on within 5-6 hours. No smell or any other problems. Best night sleep I’ve had in years and without medication.
We had been on the hunt for a new mattress for almost a year by the time we ordered our Zotto. Initially, after much online research (seriously, at least 40 hours of reading forums, reviews, comparing specs etc) we tried an online mattress that was talalay latex. We slept on it for about 3 months but it slept pretty warm and my arm went numb when sleeping on my side. We sent it back. Up next was another online mattress, also with latex top and foam base. This one slept cooler but was also way too firm (and I thought I liked a firm mattress). Another 3 months and back it went. Finally, my wife was tired of us going through all these mattresses so I buckled down and wanted to get it right this time. I was looking at 3 well known online brands that were twice the price of Zotto. Some were hybrids with innersprings, others were not. I was ready to pull the trigger when I stumbled upon Zotto. For a number of reasons, I ordered Zotto. Let me tell you - that was two years ago and we absolutely love the mattress even still. It sleeps as cool as our old innerspring, my back doesn't hurt in the morning, and it provides good support while also letting you sink in slightly and contour to your shape. I travel a lot for work and I still look forward to coming home to sleep on my own mattress. Highly recommended, great company (had an issue that Zotto promptly took care of, over and above my expectations)
WONDERFUL !!! We first laid on a Zotto Mattress when we were visiting a newly remodeled casino in California and fell in love with our great night sleep. So, obviously we had to purchase one for our home. We have always had a pillow-top mattress, BUT once we found Zotto Mattress....that's it !! We are hooked and we tell all of our friends and family and even strangers if mattresses are brought up in conversations. I sleep hot, my husband sleeps cold and this mattress accommodated both of us. We are amazed at how solid of a sleep we both get now. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE !!! No more soreness. 100% HAPPY !!! Please keep up the great work and keep this around.
We purchased the king size Zotto mattress a few months ago and haven't looked back. It is hands down the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. The staff was super nice and easy to get a hold of and the entire process was almost effortless. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for their next mattress.
Nice medium mattress, fills in the spaces nicely. I sleep very good on back and sides. Couldn't be happier.
The pair of Zotto Twin/XL mattresses we purchased is one of our best ever decisions. They fit perfectly with our new Tempur-pedic bed frames and provide a perfect nights rest. My residual lower back pain has virtually disappeared...Thank You, Zotto! A small shipping error by the distributor took only one phone call to Ryan at Zotto to resolve in just several minutes. Top notch customer service. We highly recommend these mattresses and are confident we purchased the best mattresses at the best price, not to mention that the home delivery was great and the set-up was completed in just minutes.
Zotto was #4 in my looking for a king size mattress that actually did what it claimed to do. I had a sleep # for 18 yrs and it fell apart (all the foam parts). the second was tuft & needle bad support It would bottom out (ouch). Third was loom & leaf for a back sleeper its ok yet after 10min on my side it became and stayed rock hard (pain plus) . Then after much searching and watching the guys who test mattresses on you tube we decided to try Zotto. From the first time laying on it until now I have never felt an indentation sleeping on it. When I lay down within 5 min all pain from my pressure points are gone. I'm a disabled Vietnam combat Veteran. The support and pain relief this mattress gives is amazing . My sleep has gone from 2 or 3hrs to 5 and 6 hours solid. My wife of 45 yrs said this is the one ! "The keeper" We are very pleased and really enjoy the experience every day. Make your day a great day with Zotto.
This mattress is AMAZING! I was having horrible back problems prior to purchasing this mattress. Since my husband and I have had it, we wake up feeling so refreshed and without any back pain. I highly recommend it!
Fast shipping and very comfortable mattress as was promised. Have yet to try it in hot weather,house in Coachella valley. Will update this summer.
I love the mattress. I chose Zotto when I discovered that a nearby hotel casino was using these mattresses and getting rave reviews from it's customers. I'm glad I did. It's very comfortable and I sleep much better than I did on my previous traditional mattress. before
Best Sleep of my LIFE! Was at Thunder Valley Casino in California and had the best nights sleep. Woke up in the morning and started searching for the brand. Found Zotto and purchased it the next day. Had it about two months now and I can never sleep on an old spring mattress ever again. Not too hot, not too firm, not too soft, perfect!
Such an amazing improvement from my prior mattress! I look forward to sleeping each night!
I love this mattress! With the sea of mattress-in-a-box choices out there, the Zotto is a little softer than the others, which is great for side sleepers like myself. I find myself occasionally sleeping on my back, which I wasn't able to do on my previous mattress. The Zotto support is excellent! Also, it sleeps cool for a memory foam mattress. I'm sleeping more, dreaming more, and waking up with less low back pain than with my old box spring mattress. I really should have bought a Zotto years ago. Shipping was delayed a day (supposed to ship same day) and never did find out why. That's the only thing that didn't exceed my expectations.
When we ordered the zotto mattress, we had no idea what we were getting. being in lawenforcement 48 years I require a good nights sleep. me and my wife love it , it could not be any better. I truly recommend it to anyone who wants to sleep like a baby.
This mattress is fantastic! We discovered this mattress when we were staying at a resort. Went online got a $50 discount in order the king size. My husband and I love it it's the best sleep we've gotten in a long time. We plan on buying a king size mattress for a travel trailer this mattress is that great
Zotto is the perfect mattress. Two years ago I purchased a Novaform Memory Foam Twin Mattress from Costco for my 6 year old son. He always complained that this Novaform mattress was hot! I recently purchased a new King Size Zotto Mattress and it’s the best. My son absolutely loves the bed; he can actually sleep without waking up full of sweat. If you’re a hot sleeper this Zotto mattress is for you. I returned the Novaform mattress to Costco and ordered a Zotto twin size for my son. Problem solved!
We are thrilled with the Zotto mattress. Had actually ordered the Zotto mattress for our camper, liked it so well we decided to switch out mattresses and put the Zotto in the house! Now, we want to purchase another Zotto for the camper!!
We have slept well on the Zotto mattress. The only thing that I don't like is that the edge depresses and you roll off if you sleep close to the edge. We might need to get a larger bed to thoroughly enjoy the mattress:) - planning to anyway. Our guests will enjoy the mattress we purchased after choosing a new bedroom set.
Awesome mattress. I was worried it was going to be too firm, but it's just right! Not too soft, not too hard and stays cool.
I'd purchased a Tempurpedic for a small fortune. I slept on one of these at a hotel and bought it. I've not regretted switching, but do regret having invested in the Tempurpedic.
Enjoy the firmness, I am able to wake up feeling like I had a sound restful sleep.
Great bed!! Easy set up. The smell lingers for a bit but going away!
Cons: Could be a little firmer. Doesn't have handles on the side to help with positioning the mattress. Pros: Delivered within a week. Box had hand holds, which were very helpful. One person can unbox and remove wrapping. Mattress returned to full size and thickness very quickly. Didn't notice any smell when unwrapped. Doesn't make you feel hot. I emailed a few questions, prior to purchase, which were answered within 48 hours. Nice quality. Made in USA.
We tossed & turned for weeks on the purchase decision. When the mattress arrived, the toss & turn stopped! Set up took 4 minutes. Trick is to take the mattress and out it in your bed frame before unrolling it. We were told to give it 2 weeks before forming an opinion; it was apparent after the first night that we made the right choice with Zotto. My husband's chronic back and shoulder pain subsided after a week sleeping on the Zotto. I'm well rested when waking up even with just 4-5 hours a night. We now have an appreciation for a good night of sleep because we noticed a difference in our productivity and increase in energy during the day. Great choice!!
very comfortable, easy to set up. I would definitely recommend.
I really love this mattress! It is firm but not hard and it sleeps way cooler than the TempurPedic I just got rid of! And it cost 1/2 the price! I wake up with less back and shoulder pain and that makes me happy! Glad I found you Zotto!
