Reading customer reviews is a powerful way to spot the right mattresses for you. These mattresses get high marks from customers, but some weren't as pleased. The below has more information about the feel of the mattress and a selection of customer reviews -- read on to make sure one of these works for you!
Support is important for aligning the spine and keeping things comfortable for years. These mattresses are well regarded for support by most customers, but there are some cases where folks haven't felt 100% supported.
Edge support is a must-have attribute for great mattresses and for those that sleep close to the side of their mattress. These mattresses are well regarded for edge support, but some heavier folks may experience more contouring along the sides.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
A bowling ball test is a great way to measure mattress firmness and support. These mattresses are supportive overall, but there are some that mention issues with even support long term.
Having a durable mattress is essential to shoppers, but some companies are not as focused on the longevity of mattresses as they should be. Luckily, these mattresses are above average when it comes to durability. Most customers will continue being happy about their mattress after 5 to 7 years, but some heavier people may discover that their mattress breaks down faster than average.
Discovering how folks really feel about a certain mattress is sometimes a hard thing -- especially with all of the great marketing that is being done to capture people's attention. Customers, unfortunately, don't always feel great about these mattresses. There are still customers that are very satisfied, but many others who are not. Research more below to learn about the specifics of the mattresses.
These mattresses get mixed feedback from customers on support. Though most report initial comfort and support of the spine, others have had issues with alignment long term. If this brand is on your short list, make sure to read more about it before purchasing.
Edge support is essential to those that like to lay close to the edge of the mattress. Other customers don't find it to be a major sticking point for them. Some folks feel strongly about support issues so make sure to do added reading if edge support is an important item for you.
These mattresses may not perform as well long term. Some sleepers have had complaints about the feel and durability over a short time. If you are looking for something with lasting support and would consider yourself plus-sized, these mattresses may comfort you initially, but make sure to brush up on the warranty and return policy before buying.
This is one of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on. Have enjoyed it since the first night we received it. Got pillows to go with it and love them too. Highly recommendView More Reviews
Knowledgeable staff that continually communicates through the 60-day trial period.
Both my wife and I like the bed
sleeps cool and comfortable. love it
We like our Intellibed. It's comfortable and has a clean look to it. Never noticed any discomfort. We thought from other reviews that it was going to be really firm but it's actually softer than we hoped. Also, I wish the cotton protection cover zipped around the bed. It's more like a sheet-which makes me question dust mites ability to enter the bed. Overall comfortable sleep.
My wife and I attest to the quality and comfortable sleep on our IntelliBed mattress. We have the King Size IntelliBed and have slept on it now for four months. What a difference and improvement of our sleep. My first night on the bed was an adjustment for us as it moves differently than our old foam based mattress, however we both noticed that we slept longer, did not turn over as much, and felt better in the morning. After a few days use, the IntelliBed bed felt natural, and we felt so rested, it's wonderful. For me, it doubled my restful sleep; my old foam mattress seemed to get so hot, and create pressure points, that I would interrupt my sleep to frequently turn over throughout the night; not any more. Four months since our first sleep on our IntelliBed, we are now making plans to purchase our 2nd IntelliBed for our vacation home.
It is a nice bed and very comfy but I do not think 60 days is enough time for your body to adjust and get use to it before deciding if a softer bed would work better. Some nights I do great and other nights I wake up hurting bad from the bed. As of now it is 50/50. Sometimes I wonder if the softer bed would have been a better choice for me. As of now there are no options without consequences.
This bed is the perfect mix of firm and soft. As my wife and I looked for a new bed we constantly struggled to find something that fit us both but didn't limit us to where we laid on the bed. We both immediately said we loved the feel of the bed when we tested it and only love it more now that we have had if for a couple of months.
We gave it a thirty night stay, but could not get a good night sleep on this mattress. Customer service in handling our questions/concerns and in the ordering process was top notch.
Had a wonderful experience with ordering my intelliBed AND love the bed itself!
I had problems with my knees and hips. My arms hurt when I woke up from improper sleep positions. I bought an intellibed and after awhile of getting used to it I felt so much better. I also bought an intellipillow. My neck aches and pains dissapeared. I will keep this bed forever. I live in an RV that has storage under the bed. This bed weighs about 95 lbs. I had a stronger lift put in and now it's perfect!! Thank you intellibed for your customer service and excellent bed!
I love my new bed. It's made such a difference. However, I've really been blown away by intelliBED's outstanding customer service - tremendous!
My wife and I had some issues with our mattress and the customer service staff were prompt and helpful in getting things resolved.
Almost bought another Sleep Number bed, had to cancel the order after I found out about Intellibed. Best decision ever!
After sleeping on this bed for a month, I'm not sure that my back pain is much better. (There are no other factors in my life for back pain; it is all related to time spent sleeping.) Then we were on vacation for a month and slept in various beds, and I had no back pain! Now back to sleeping on this mattress for a week, and my back is getting unbearable after a night's sleep. I'm not sure yet how I feel about this bed.
I bought this bed because it did not outgas and the salesperson told me it was a firm mattress which was very important to me. I got it and indeed it did not smell in any way. It was great because I had been sleeping on a hard futon.It started to feel soft so I called the company and they said to keep it for 30 days as I had to adjust to the comfort. My mistake! I ended up letting the return policy expire and now I am saddled with it,
I looked on the website as I felt as that my firm bed had no support. So they have it rated as feeling firm but then if you look further you see another rating where they say it has a soft back and posterior support. Now how can a mattress be firm but then super soft with little support on your back. I called to complain and they told me that 'Oh there was another mattress for $2100 that was indeed firm.' Yeah like I believe them.
Do not buy this mattress. Bad idea. Dishonest salespeople.
Horrible bed. Save your money and buy a traditional mattress. You'll get a goodnights rest without the back pain, and other aches that come along with this bed.
This mattress is a dream come true! After spending many years sleeping in a lazy boy recliner due to a back injury from a motorcycle accident, I was convinced that I would never be able to sleep on a mattress ever again. I have owned the intelliBED Relief Perfect mattress for 6 months and have been able to wake every morning with no pain or discomfort. I have noticed that my sleep has improved. Instead of getting 4-5 hours of sleep, I am now averaging 7-8 hours of sleep. Every night! I highly recommend this mattress for anyone and everyone!
LOVE this mattress! I sleep better than ever before! My back and neck issues have gone away. This is the best mattress and I would recommend it for anyone!
I have had insomnia for about 17 years and have tried everything to sleep longer, better and to wake up actually feeling rested. Investing in this bed was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It allows me to not toss and turn and to get the much needed deep sleep I was so desperate to find. I have zero issues with my insomnia, no more back pain and more than that I sleep cool and more comfortable than I ever had. It has truly been an amazing purchase - so much that we have also have the pillows, sheets and toppers for our tent trailer.
I had an old water bed I used to look forward to getting into. I have tried Sleep Number, 2 Tempurpedics and had not been able to find a bed I enjoyed getting into. Until this one. It is the most comfortable bed I've experienced. The bed seems to suck the pain our of my muscles and I wake up every morning refreshed and well-rested. I don't toss and turn like I have in the past since there are no hot spots that develop under high-weight areas. I justified the price as this may be the last bed I own and the warranty is a lot longer than on a normal bed. I have a Fitbit which tracks sleep. I checked it before and after I bought the bed. I have far less interrupted sleep on this bed. I definitely recommend this!
I love this bed! I have been sleeping on it for a year and a half and I enjoy every night. My body is supported perfectly and I love that it is non-toxic. It is worth every penny as it has a 30 year warrantee and is used nightly. Looking at it that way, it is actually a bargain! It did take me several nights to get used to as my body had to re-pattern itself to sleeping with real support. I didn't like the pillow, though, and went back to my down one.
If you don't have this bed you are missing out.... I have never slept better in my life. I never want to get out of my bed. It will take about 30 days for your body to get adjusted to the bed. It is worth the money and you won't regret it. Don't think about it, buy it!
Fantastic service and follow-through, not to mention a superior product. IntelliBed will be the last mattress I buy.
No more back problems when I wake up:)
I am VERY happy with my miracle bed. When I first got it they said the first month would be a ‘period of adjustment ‘. I didn’t think that was accurate because I loved it from my first night. Happy to say I was WRONG! It just keeps getting better. This was/is more than a bed to me. I have been in a very long healing process from a serious injury, so this has been facilitating my healing in ways I could not have imagined. THANK YOU!!
First month is in the books! Greatest sleep I've had in ages. Issues I thought were age and activity level related are starting to subside. I thought my hips were bad because of playing basketball 4 times a week, come to find out my old mattress was likely the culprit. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and would recommend Intellibed to everyone!
This bed and this company can't be beat. We have tried numerous beds in the last two years. This is the first time my husband and I aren't waking up with sore hips and lower backs. Well worth the money we spent. The customer service is exemplary. Finally, we can sleep pain-free. Thank you IntelliBED!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Intellibed! I was a little nervous about purchasing such an expensive bed without trying out but felt good that they offered a 60 day money back guarantee. I knew after the first night I would not be returning this bed. It is fabulous! I sleep so much better. No more aches and pains in the night in my hips or my back. Surprisingly, even the Intellibed pillow is amazing. I wasn't expecting much from a pillow but it has really helped with my neck pain. This bed was definitely worth every penny!!
Good service but slow. Expensive..
What a pleasure. It was easy to ordered. It arrived right on time. And, sleep. Yes, what a wonderful sleep. Thank you for your great product.
Very comfortable, but I still tend to get circulation pains if I lay on one side too long. I think I do tend to sleep better, at least some.
I love my intellibed mattress! it is amazing!
I am pregnant and changing to my Intellibed took away my hip and shoulder pains from sleeping on the side all the time!! I can only imagine how comfortable Ill be once not pregnant anymore!!!
Got the first set with the bed, then because we liked them so much we bought a 2nd set.
Purchased mine at the home show at the South Town Expo Center. The adjustable base is really nice to have too. I definitely would recommend to anyone.
It's the best bed ever. It took me 3 weeks to get use to it but i hung in there and now it feels great.
The bed is just as wonderful as I had hoped. My husband and I are sleeping better and waking up without the aches we had before. However, I was supposed to receive sheets and pillows as part of the promotion I purchased the mattress with. The sales man didn't include it in the invoice, so once I realized this I emailed and called customer service leaving a message because no one answered. No one ever returned my email or phone message.
Not a miracle bed. Its comfortable but I still have pressure feelings and need to change position several times a night. We have rotated the mattress but still have a feeling we are making depressions in the bed on the spots in which we usually sleep.
After 10 years we came to the realization we needed a new mattress. What a job! Not only are there a lot of choices but many different price ranges. After the standard search both retail store and online we finally made our choice. It was between the Pillow top Sterns and Foster and the Intellibed. The Intellibed hands down was the better bed. It was pricier than the Sterns & Foster but in hind sight the better choice. We have been sleeping on our new Intellibed (Midnight) for almost two months now (My wife and I generally sleep on all sides) No off gassing (no pun intended), Temperature just right, 20 year warranty, 30-90 days to test. These people will refund your money less a removal fee if you don’t like it. Many places will only let you exchange for another one of their other products. Received free set of sheets, Mattress Protector and 2 large pillows. The pillows have some off gas, however if you let them air out for a couple of weeks they are quite nice. Also purchased a standard frame that elevates both head and feet. Height of entire bed can be adjusted, we set ours a little under 32” above floor. We were worried that the bed might not perform after investing a fair amount of money. We bought the bed because our former bed (Beauty Rest) had surpassed its usefulness and my wife’s hips were really bothering her. She also had a hard time getting and staying asleep at night. She is not totally without hip pain but she sleeps much better and wakes much more rested than our previous bed. It took about a week to really start enjoying this bed. We would like to report that the decision to purchase this bed from Mattress Firm (Lincoln, Ca) was the right decision because the bed is simply Wonderful. This is only the 2nd time I have ever taken the time to write a review, this Intellibed (Midnight) is worth the investment of your money, sleep and ultimately your wellbeing. I personally think this is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, including many hotels such as the Ritz. The Con: This mattress is very heavy. Delivery people cannot get this mattress into the house without some contact with the ground. It has plastic protection during delivery, however for the average person to move it after delivery is a lot harder than most mattresses. It would probably take four people and there are no straps to help with that process. I am not planning to move my bed any time soon, but be aware to move this mattress for any reason is a chore.
This is such a great mattress. We found it at the local mattress firm and couldn't be more pleased.View More Reviews
The mattress felt excellent in the store, but once we slept on it for a month it started to cause back pain. I am hoping it is just an adjustment period, but afraid if it isn't.
This mattress was great in store. But after we got it home, it started to sag within weeks. After a few months, it is starting to affect my sleep because me and my husband are tossing and turning all night long. What a disappointment.
We got the Oasis Resort and within the first year it had completely deteriorated. Massive sagging issues and big lump in the middle. This is not what we wanted and now we are stuck with it because our warranty claim was denied.
We bought a $1400 Sherwood mattress and after 4 years, it was sagging so much I woke with a back ache. Went back to the store and they said they no longer carried this brand because customers were unhappy. Contacted Sherwood and their 20 year warranty was meaningless because they determined it was just fine. More money DOES NOT mean quality.
When we first got the Sherwood Oasis mattress in 2013 the first 2 yrs it was a good comfortable mattress we were happy with. After year 2 it began sagging in the center and by year 5 it had to be replaced
The seam of this mattress is coming undone after 3 years of normal use. Sherwood will not honor warranty because my kid spilled water on the mattress, which soaked through mattress pad and caused some yellowing of mattress. I think the yellowing is actually coming from INSIDE the mattress, and is brought out by the water. This is an obvious manufacture defect that the company refuses to fix due to a minor and UNRELATED stain. The 20-year warranty is bogus, and the quality of this mattress is lousy. Avoid.
