Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Urban in this match up!
Each of us need to survey the customer reviews before we invest in a pricy product. However, it isn't that simple trying to condense the most important parts after browsing a bunch of brands. In our investigation of reviews and sentiment from customers, we discovered that sleepers give these mattresses above average scores. However, some had disagreements about overall feel. Make sure to look into the mattress specifics to learn if it will work for you.
A supportive mattress that properly cradles the body is what you need for a better night's sleep. If your mattress does a poor job supporting you, you are not likely getting the kind of sleep that you could be getting from a mattress that aligns the spine. All in all, these mattresses do offer good support at first, but some had issues with lasting comfort.
Most folks will find these to do well on edge support, which is good for those that enjoy sitting on the side of the mattress. Those that have bigger frames may still experience some sagging along the edges.
Companies that properly invest in testing, quality control, and good materials should have durable mattresses. Companies may have disagreements with sleepers if they don't invest in these attributes. Unfortunately, customers have mixed feedback on these mattresses on durability. Some report finding lasting comfort, while others complain about discomfort over the short term. Make sure to double-check the warranty and return policies before buying.
With brands investing in managing online reputation, it's difficult for the average shopper to get to the truth of customer satisfaction. That said, customers give these mattresses good marks overall. But, there were some sleepers that disagreed with the feel. so take a look at the research below to make sure one of these mattresses will work for you!
Mattress support is one of the most important attributes for just about everyone. Even if you like a soft or a firm mattress, a mattress that leads to better spine alignment is key. These mattresses do a good job with support over much of the competition.
Some mattress connoisseurs report that edge support is a key for the mattress shopper. These mattresses are strong in the edge support category, which means that sleepers report feeling consistency in support near the sides of the bed.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Measuring firmness with a bowling ball on the surface of the mattress is a good approach and it does a good job measuring even support throughout the surface layers. These mattresses offer good even support, which will help with aligning the spine.
These mattresses do a good job with comfort longevity versus competitors. Having a durable mattress can mean comfortable sleep for years while one that quickly falters can mean immediate discomfort. These mattresses will last up to a decade, which is good for mattresses today. Folks may experience a slight decrease in longevity who weight more or spend more time in bed than average.
This bed was perfect and everything I'd hoped it would be... at first. After having if for a few months it seems like it's wore down in the middle of the bed where I tend to lay more often. If I try to lay on the edges I just roll to the center. It seemed to good to be true at first, but I don't think they're built to last.View More Reviews
I feel like it already may be sagging in the middle since that is where I sleep the most, but is very soft and comfortable
I waited a long time to write this review because most beds are great when you first get them. But there are huge sleep indents where my wife and I sleep, and one big raised lump in the middle of us. I'm a big guy over 250 pounds, but my wife is barely over 100 pounds. I understand how my side has been messed up, but not hers! Now after 18 months of sleeping on the mattress it is way too soft and way too lumpy and we are searching for a better brand.
I wanted a memory foam mattress for years after sleeping on one on a hotel. I refuse to pay $3000 for a mattress. I bought this after reading the reviews. I have had the best several months sleep ever. I don't wake up sore anymore. We did not experience any of the smell reported in other reviews. You absolutely cannot beat the price!
The mattress arrived timely. We let it rest a couple of days before using it on the bed. There was little to no off-gassing smell and my niece says it sleeps very comfortably. Very good purchase! Thank you.
When I see this in the Amazon Primeday, I said to my self 'I Want One Of Those'. I have full size bed frame that needs a bed mattress. As advertised, a full size is measured 75 x 54 x 10. I like as it is 10 inch thick. Ordered a full size, got it. packaged like a vacuum seal, it is heavy . Opened and placed it on my bed frame. And now I said to my self, Oh! NO!! S....!!!. It is wider than it is advertised. It is 56 inch wide, and it won't fit my bed frame. Mattress is firm and has a nice cover. I will return it and now my problem is re-packing it back to its box. Maybe return it in several pieces. Very dissappointed
This mattress was a steal!! I was so skeptical due to the low price but I am SO happy I ordered it anyway! It's firm, yet soft. Excellent quality. I've never slept so well. The only downside is being so comfortable that it's difficult getting out of bed in the morning!
so easy to set up. SUPER comfortable. My husband who is in chronic pain from just being a dum-dum when he was young sleeps better on this than any bed we have ever slept on.
Wow, I love this mattress. Just a fair warning, I never owned a memory foam mattress before this 1 so maybe I'm just too biased towards it. It's firm enough to support me sleeping on my back and soft enough for me to sleep on my side with no issues. It supports edge sleeping very well not that I like to sleep on the edge since I tend to fall off my bed when I do lol. The only thing I really really really disliked was the VERY strong smell coming from the mattress when you first unwrap it. Highly recommended you let the mattress air out for about 2 days. After I've done that I haven't smelled anything coming from the mattress.
I used to have insomnia. USED to.
The mattress is great I would say up their with the serta i comfort line and without the high price.
The mattress has great support for the body and even has edge support and does not heat up like other memory foam mattress.
I am not really a one position sleeper and have no complainants unless you want a extra firm or a ultra plush mattress as I would rate it the sweet spot.
I love this bed. I was a bit skeptical initially as I have never purchased a bed without actually going to the store, however I did a little research on the company and made the purchase. I am very happy with it. I look forward to purchasing another one when I have a place to put it.
It was hilarious seeing a queen size mattress come out of that (relatively) tiny box. It had hardly any 'memory foam' smell out of the bag, even less after letting it sit for 24 hours. Very comfortable, but one of the firmest mattresses I've ever slept on. If you don't like a very firm mattress this might not be the mattress for you.
Good mattress for the price. Hard to tell if it will hold up over time. Edges a bit soft.
I received what appeared to be used mattress with oil on one side and tears on the other.
We have had the mattress about 3 weeks and it has exceeded my expectations. My old mattress was very expensive and it was never this comfy. I always woke up extremely hot and sweaty,so you know my concerns about switching to memory foam. I'm soooo pleased ,cool and rested. LOVE IT!
This bed is firm. If you like a firm mattress, you'll probably love this one. Personally, I expected more shape contouring from a bed this expensive. To find out why it's not great I unzipped the top cover to discover it is simply an 8-inch piece of upholstery foam with a 2-inch piece of memory foam glued on top. That's it.
On the plus side, the cover is stretchy and seems like relatively good quality except for the fact that it has a part where it wasn't sewn correctly and is falling apart along 2 inches or so of the seam. My wife likes (but doesn't love the bed). I am sleeping OK, but find it uncomfortably firm. I've gone ahead and put another 2 inches of memory foam on top of the bed and I'm hoping it will soften things up to my satisfaction.
Another positive feature is that there was very little odor when we opened the package and it dissapated quickly.
Liked what I felt in the store, but it feels a little less magical at home. However, I can't complain much because it still really beats my old crappy Serta.View More Reviews
Unlike many mattress stores that I have been in, this experience was far from pushy -- and I had a lower budget, but experienced great service and a good overall experience. In the end, selected one of their urban mattresses and am very pleased with the feel of the bed. Good stuff!
Just bought from the Berkeley branch and it was such a great experience. Todd was amazingly helpful, but not pushy at all. He just wanted to direct me in the right direction and in the end, I got an Urban Mattress that I just love. Couldn't be happier.
I had a great customer service experience when I went into Urban Mattress -- not pushy at all and I felt like I got the right bed when I left. Unfortunately, the bed isn't as comfortable as I first thought it was. It is a bit hard in the cold weather and I sometimes wake up with back pain. Still going to see if it gets better, but waiting to see.
Just bought an Urban Naturals mattress. I was really excited about the idea of it being all natural after some of things I read online about VOCs. Overall, it feels like a great mattress and I really don't mind that I paid more than a Casper for it being natural and not hurting my baby and me.
Great experience in the store and great experience when I got the mattress. The delivery folks were really friendly and the mattress ended up being the perfect thing for my back pain. I couldn't be happier.
Had a good experience in the store, but afterwards didn't get my mattress for over 3 weeks. There was a lot of back and forth, and I finally got it, but there wasn't good communication during that process and the company should try to get better at this piece of their customer experience. Overall, bed is okay.
I feel like I might have overpaid a little bit. I didn't do a lot of research because my friends told me about Urban Mattress. After I bought the Urban Naturals model, I looked online at similar mattresses and think that it may have been a little bit on the expensive side. Not a complainer, but should have looked at what was out there before I shopped.
Got my mattress from the Berkeley store and it was a great experience. Todd was amazing, not pushy, but helped me find what I needed. After that, I feel like I am actually sleeping better and living better as a consequence. Great stuff!
Bought Dunlopillo Harbor Lux Queen in June. By August, both sides sloped outward and there was a ridge down the middle. For $1,200, you would think it would have been a good quality mattress. It wasn't.
Won't be shopping here ever again.
Update: Amazing customer service! Got a message from Nathaniel, the owner. He said it sounded like a warranty issue. He offered to exchange my mattress, including exchanging it for a more expensive mattress, at NO ADDITIONAL EXPENSE. I picked another mattress I liked, and it will be exchanged next week. I was not even charged for delivery. Will be sending my daughter here to buy a mattress next week.
Won't be shopping for a mattress any place but URBAN MATTRESS.
I have only had one other mattress shopping experience, and it was DREADFUL (MattressLand, Springfield VA), so I don't have a very large basis for comparison. But, I DID end up buying a mattress here, so I am giving it a thumbs up. The staff was nice and not pushy at all. Answered our questions and provided a little guidance, and helped us find a great mattress. They provide free delivery to my house, free removal of the old mattress, and/or will help you to move the old mattress to a guest bedroom (or wherever).
Bonus: Urban Mattress donates 2% of the purchase price to a charity of your choosing (you can select one of four). I thought that was a really nice touch.
What a great experience! Our first day of shopping for our teen son's new bed set. We are not impulse buyers and very rarely make a purchase at our first stop. Josh made this an easy and painless process! Prices were comparable to other places and included a warranty and trial period. Thank you Urban Mattress!
Best experience I've ever had buying a mattress! Ethan at the Denver location was incredibly helpful for my husband and I when we decided to upgrade to a king bed. They encourage you to really lay on the mattresses and even turn on relaxing music for a full experience. They don't push certain beds on you and do not seem to be working on commission. Additionally, Ethan honored a sale price that we talked about even after the sale was over. Overall an incredible experience in terms of customer service, and the bed we're getting is the most comfortable I've ever slept on!
A Company with Heart I learned a lot about Urban Mattress Denver on a recent visit. The people at this company are doing some really great things outside of the sales floor. For instance, they support a program that helps convicted felons find work. This reduces recidivism and adds to the overall health of the economy. Plus, it's just a good thing to do for folks who may be looking for a second chance in life. There are some really wonderful mattresses at Urban Mattress Denver. I was really impressed with the upscale ones made by Vispring. Ethan, the owner, told me that The "VI" in Vispring stands for the Roman numeral 6. It represents the six turns to each coil. That makes a difference, believe me. You should try one out. This is a really great store with even better people. Sleep well!
The guys took time to ensure we picked the right mattress and they also have some pretty awesome financing options. Highly recommended for anyone that is in the market for a new mattress or Tempur-Pedic Thanks again!
Great experience! I was a little wary about buying a mattress - it had been a while and you hear stories about mattress salesman, but Urban Mattress totally went above and beyond expectations! We walked in, were greeted by two friendly, easy going salesmen, offered a beer(!) and then Ethan, the owner, listened to us. He guided us to a mattress that, immediately, felt right, but showed us a handful of others just to compare. He knew exactly what we were looking for and made the whole process smooth and easy. The price was competitive with what we had been looking at online at another place, and he threw in a mattress protector for free (a win-win for them since they have a 90 day return policy). They stock locally made mattresses with 15 year warranties. They also support local schools and non-profits and all-around nice people. Highly recommend!
This was my first ever dealing with a mattress store, but this will not be the last. Any future business that I have will be done with Urban Mattress. My situation was slightly odd but Ethan made everything a breeze. He was extremely knowledgeable about the type of mattress that I needed, and even set it up to be delivered to my new apartment. The delivery itself went so smoothly and the movers were courteous and quick! Overall this has definitely been a 5-star experience and I can't recommend these guys/gals enough! Thank you Ethan and thank you Urban mattress!
Don't know where to start, but I simply can't say enough good things about my experience shopping at Urban Mattress...I just moved from Chicago, and making a long drive plus moving heavy things left my body completely shot. With my other shopping options, I was going to have to be without a bed for a few more WEEKS. I'd gotten a quote from UM a few weeks before I got here, so I decided to follow up with them- Ethan, specifically- and he not only honored the original price he gave me, but made sure I had my bed within 48 hours. He was an absolute delight, and this bed is a dream (see what i did there?!). Don't bother with other options- this is the way to go. THANK YOU for a wonderful experience!
I went to this place because of the great reviews and quickly learned that this place was nothing like others described except for the ones that show they got lack of service as well I walked in to buy a mattress the owner actually came up to help me I was there maybe six minutes trying out a couple beds with another customer walked in and he walked away after helping her he did some work on his computer I was confused as to why he stepped away maybe was because I had too many questions concerning the way the beds were made and the quality of the material. I thought those are common questions and fair to ask especially learning that buying a bed is no easy task. During that time I also noticed a shift in his attitude which was sort of alarming being that he bragged about the beds he has that he designed and created except for the ones that are over $10,000 when I walked over that section and at that time he decided to come back over and talk to me (I tried this on purpose to see what he would do) It was clear as soon as I did this what kind of person he was. He doesn't really have patience for someone buying his lower end beds which makes no sense to me he should just open up an all high-end bed store. I went elsewhere and bought a great bed and a much better deal than what I think much better quality from all of my research and visiting various other stores
This was an enjoyable experience. Large selection, fair prices, nice people to deal with. They lived up to their word and delivered as promised. My wife loves the mattress. We feel good to recommend.
Looking reviews, this place looks like quite the mixed bag. And while I cannot speak to the full shopping experience, I can speak my visit to their Colorado Blvd store. While I feel we were steered towards the extremely expensive mattresses, I can not think of a sales experience that didn't start by showing me the top of the line so I could "compare" property. That is sales, and I have learned to accept it. After learning why a mattress can cost more than my car, we spoke with a gentleman named Ethan who I believe is one of the owners. He was very knowledgeable, and also told us about what they are doing for charity in the Denver area. They specifically contract with a group that works with recently released convicts so that these who are entering the workforce with a large black mark on their CV an get work and d all for both themselves and an employer. Also a portion (I believe we were told 2%) of the sale is donated to local charities. And if you of not are for the charities they normally donate towards, you can request they donate it to the local charity of your choice. That is pretty awesome! Anyway, the only reason I would not purchase a mattress from Urban Mattress is that I have a family member in the industry and I know that Thanksgiving would be horribly awkward for the remainder of my years if I were to by a mattress from else. Granted if Ethan could get me g killer deal, I might be willing to live with some extra awkward with my stuffing.
I have had the mattress for 2 years and it is still just as comfy now as the day I got it. Got a bed stand for it a couple weeks ago for it. Easy set up. Great customer service, good prices.
Who knew trying mattresses could be so enjoyable? My fiancée and I went to three different mattress stores to try mattresses, and not only was the experience here so much better, but the beds were too. Johnny and Ethan helped us out with our purchase, and they did a great job. They tried to keep us in our price range, and left us alone to try things out, while at the same time answering all our questions. Also, stellar drinks.
We just had an amazing team deliver a HEAVY king mattress up our very old staircase. Urban Mattress has been an awesome team to work with, from the service in the store to the quick and professional delivery.
My husband and I were both waking up with back pain so we went in "just to look" but were so blown away by the quality and price we left with a brand new adjustable king bed. The bed was delivered the next morning and the crew even moved the existing bed into our guest room for us. The shopping experience was not just easy but enjoyable! Thanks UM!
Great customer service and a great mattress is what you get at Urban Mattress Boulder. I worked with Ken and got a knowledgeable sales associate. I initially got a mattress that was too firm and Eric was terrific about exchanging it for a different model. No extra cost to deliver to Nederland (twice!) and the guys were on time, quick and professional. I ran the mattress store gantlet doing research before buying, visiting 9-10 places. I found UMB was the most customer friendly of the group. After having back pain for a year, I finally bit the bullet and invested in my sleep quality with new mattress. Their product is more expensive but of much better quality and ultimately the 15 year no sag warranty sold me. After a month sleeping on it, I am extremely happy with this purchase and my buying experience. I will be buying from them again for our guest room. I highly recommend Ken and Eric over at Urban Mattress Boulder.
If you are looking for a mattress that is something out of the ordinary or have very special requirements, this is the place. It's family owned and run and the family member I worked with was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. No high pressure but was happy to spend time with me and write up a proposal even though I was not ready to buy immediately. These are high cost mattresses but worth it, given that they include a lot of natural components, not just the mass produced trend of the year. They even called me in advance of a special sale recently to let me know the savings on my choice. It's wonderful that they don't upsell by package pricing like a lot of the chains. You can actually get "just" a mattress if that's what you want and need. We had recently already changed our base and want to assess that before changing another aspect. I will be back when I am ready to make the purchase of this model or the more expensive one I am still considering as there are pro and cons of each and a higher end product I have had in the past.
We needed a mattress four our son who just moved to town. Urban Mattress was the perfect choice! Eric was super friendly and helpful, guiding us to the perfect mattress. Delivery was free- and we had the mattress the next day. This is definitely the place to go for a quality product and excellent customer service!
Great experience for a great quality mattress. Confident sales team. No nonsense. In and out in 20 minutes. Mattress delivered 3 hrs later. Easy. Thank you!!
Best mattress store and customer service! Billy, Eric, Alexa and Ken were all so helpful and experts at helping us find the right mattress. We thought we found the perfect mattress and it turns out it was too firm for us. They exchanged it for the true perfect mattress after lots of visits and conversation about what we wanted in a mattress. We love it! We truly apprciated how friendly, caring and knowledgable they all were.
Superb service. Have never slept better, and don't want to get out of bed in the morning!! They were even willing to give me a temporary brand new mattress until the swell fancier one I bought was custom made. Everyone I came in contact with were wonderful and helpful. Delivery guys were clean cut, thoughtful, on time, reliable, nice, well trained, and as a bonus, delightfully funny.. overall shopping at Urban Mattress was dynamite experience. Highest recommendations,, I will never shop any other mattress company in Boulder..
I spent 6 months gearing up to buy a mattress because it's a major investment! I couldn't be happier to have gone with Urban Mattress. I originally purchased a firm mattress that ended up not being the right fit for my husband and I. The guys at Urban Mattress made the exchange easy, guilt-free, and super convenient. They GENUINELY care about getting you the perfect fit. Not to mention, the quality of their products is unparalleled. Without question, I will be telling everyone to go here to find their next mattress.
Excellent service, excellent knowledge, and we feel like we made an excellent purchase! Really very happy with our experience today and will be back for our next mattresses!
I highly recommend this mattress store. Very knowledgeable staff - the owner has been working with mattresses for almost 40 years. They have incredible quality mattresses at a very reasonable price, and are not a chain store. 10 year warranty. I found the owner extremely trustworthy, I think the whole transaction took 15 minutes because I told him exactly what I wanted and the price range, and he took me to the exact bed that I needed. That kind of service requires a certain kind of knowledge, intuition, and artistry that can't be found in sales people that have been in the industry for five months and work on commission. Plus the mattress will end up in my house for free within 24 hours. Honestly how could you ask for more.
Needed a mattress for my son's new big boy bed. These guys were awesome! I really appreciated that the sales guy was not pushy and he made delivery arrangements so quick and easy. I made a mistake to order the wrong size mattress and he took care of it without any problems. Great service, awesome mattress! The transition from crib to bed was so easy! I think the super comfy mattress helped. Thank you!
Very nice mattress store with high end choices. They have mattresses that cost 20 K plus made of horse hair and fine stuff.. :) really seriously. I just had to pick up a metal frame for my very plain but comfortable king size bed and found out a lot about many amazing mattresses. The gent was very nice who I talked too but I can never see spending 20 k on a mattress. Seems silly.
In the middle of a mattress emergency purchase they were calm, didn't take advantage of the "had to have" situation, the mattress was on time with tons of very helpful options and communication prior too. We were on the 4th floor, no elevator and not a single "look" or complaint, just wonderful! Oh, and the mattress is probably the best we have EVER had!!
We bought a queen sized mattress here today and had a very good experience. All salespeople were friendly and helpful. They weren't pushy, they gave us a few options and then left us to decide. We chose a mattress that was comparable to others we had seen in town and about $100 less than what other places were offering. The ambience was also nice--there's a water feature, fresh coffee, and nice lighting. It made me feel like taking a nap, which might be the point! I would definitely buy from them again! Oh, and free delivery is a nice touch!
FANTASTIC! Don't buy a mattress anywhere else. Service is great and the mattress is amazingly comfortable. The salesperson was extremely patient as we tried out a TON of mattresses and then referred us to the owner for a recommendation when we were couldn't make up our minds. Once we explained our dilemma (differences in softness requirements) he actually recommended a much less expensive option than we were originally considering - and we're both very happy with it. Slight delay in delivery (hour or so) due to confusion with the address but they called immediately upon realizing the number had been written down incorrectly and followed up with me twice. I'll never go elsewhere for a mattress!
Very positive experience from the moment we walked through the door until mattress and accessories were delivered.
