Bought top end Jamison mattress set....box springs squeak horribly after less than one year. Had to escalate to the CEO of the company before I was given a replacement after getting no where with 'customer service' for 4 months.
I am writing from Wisconsin. I purchased a Solstice Sleep Products mattress for my son fall of last year. Within two months of purchase, the mattress started sagging. For the past four months I have been working diligently to get the mattress replaced. While the company agrees it is a faulty mattress and covered by warranty, they want it returned to the manufacturer in Indianapolis, IN. We live in mid Wisconsin. The cost of shipping is almost as much as the cost of the mattress. The store where we purchased it at has gone out of business. Just want all buyers to beware of poor quality products and no customer service with this company! Very disappointed in Wisconsin.
I bought the Bar Harbor after the sales person assured me Marriott Hotels use this mattress n all their hotels. I was looking for a Beauty Rest and decided on this one..MISTAKE... after only one year it sags, makes a groaning noise if you even lean on it, it is so hard and uncomfortable I have taken to sleeping on the couch. Contacted the company twice with no response. Filed a complain with the BBB
I bought an Ashley B 183 HB Jamison Queen set and frame from Smith's Furniture Galleria on 8-31-14. We noticed it was harder than it seemed in the store after sleeping on it. My husband Bobby wanted to have them take it back immediately, but I thought it just needed breaking in. We have realized after two years that all our joints hurt more and more, and the mattress and box springs are just getting more compressed and harder instead of softer the more we sleep on it. We are unable to get a good night’s sleep. We were sold a discontinued model that Solstice was not going to produce any longer. These box springs and mattress should have not been sold anymore. They knew there were complaints about this product, yet they continued to sell them. Nobody told us they were bad.
We bought this mattress a few years ago and within a month, we noticed it sank where we slept. Told the sales person and was told we need to turn the mattress and flip it.. Yes, we turn it and flip it, it still sinks in the areas we slept.. ridges next to the sleeping area are very noticeable, when you roll onto the ridge, it definitely can be felt. This mattress is easier to turn than flip, I can turn it myself. The mattress is a king size and so heavy, it is not possible for me to flip it by myself.. The sales person was nice talking with, said to keep flipping and turning it.. which we are.. We have another king mattress and never have had to turn or flip it. Have had it for over 15 years and it sleeps so much better. It is my recommendation anyone reading this comment, look for another made mattress. I am hoping the manufacture will help me correct this problem. I am about to trash his one and invest again in another mattress.
This “Marriott Mattress” did not live up to expectations. Significant body depressions were present within 2 years despite regular mattress rotation. Sleep quality was affected by depressions. After a protracted warranty claim process, my claim was denied. To be covered, the depressions had to be at least 1 1/2 inches deep. My depressions were deep enough that we rolled in and out of them. 1 1/2 inches is a trough! This company does not stand behind their product. The warranty is worthless.
We purchased a Lucerne mattress made by Solstice and were dissatisfied from the first night. We were told it was the Marriott mattress that we loved at hotels made by Jamison. Within a year, the mattress had body depressions, even with turning it and we were waking up with back aches. Just purchased a Sealy Grand Valley on sale at BJ's and what a difference. Will never buy an off brand again.
What a bargain! Wish I could have found such a great mattress and fantastic price a year ago. I would have bought it immediately. I aired out the mattress for 48 hours, set it up on my bed and what a wonderful restful nights sleep I had. If you want a great nights sleep check out the mattress I just bought!View More Reviews
We purchased two of these in twin size and let me tell you they do not disappointment. The increased comfort while sleeping is leaving my teenage daughters in much better moods and they feel rested in the mornings instead of like they tossed and turned all night. They are made of quality materials and specs are exactly as stated. Phenomenal mattress for a budget price.
For a very reasonable price I was able to replace an old worn out mattress with a very comfortable and easy to place mattress in our guest bedroom. It isn't a mattress someone uses everyday and therefore it was a good choice as an extra bed for guests. Seems to be very comfortable although it may be a little soft for some peoples tastes. All things considering I'm happy with the purchase for the following reasons, quality, comfort and ease of delivery & placement.
This mattress was advertised as a back aid mattress. It is by far not even acceptable for a person with out a back problem. It bends in every direction and the springs feel like they are popping thru. Very disappointed, not keeping this. I hope I can return it without being charged shipping. Don't buy this mattress.
I was so excited to get my mattress and then just a little disappointed. This mattress is ALOT softer than I expected. I wanted a soft to medium and this one is really really soft. I LOVE JCP and had never had a complaint - it's not the companies fault at all and I should have researched mattresses better before buying. The mattress has no support at all and if you need one with some support, better pass on by this mattress. It's really soft with no support at all. Again, I just wanted a soft to medium but this one is totally saggy in the center.
We were surprised at how the mattress was boxed. At first we didn't know what what was in the box. After we opened the mattress up and laid it on the bed we found it to be extremely comfortable. After sleeping on it for a few nights we realized our aching backs stopped aching. We have recommended a few of our friends and family to take advantage of Penny's mattresses.
I slept comfortably on the first night so that's a plus. I would say it's more of a children's mattress. But it's going to do its job as long as my sleep is not messed with. It was fun getting out of the box. Friend couldn't figure how they got it in the box. Has a newness smell.
Was very concerned with the tall square box that this mattress arrived in, but was literally laughing when taking it out of the box and out of the tight plastic airtight bag, that the mattress sprang to life. It's very comfortable. As it hasn't been used much I can't really testify to the durability of it but for the price, it's made us quite pleased.
It was exactly what was advertised & came in quicker than expected. Nicely done!
Purchased this mattress for my grandmother who needed a new one. When I received it, it was super thin. (It's very wobbley and within a week the springs are felt through). Unfortuanatley it did not meet my expectations. I do not see this mattress aiding anyones back. Will try to return this. If I can help anyone from making the mistake I did, do not buy this mattress. It's not even meant for someone without back problems.

I still can't believe this mattress came out of that small box.. lol
Great mattress, I've tried several foam mattresses before and this is the most comfortable mattress. Most other i would sinc too deep in and would make movement dificult. -It is firm, so if you like a very plush mattress this is not for you. The latex is Dunlop in this matress which is firmer than Talalay latex (softer, cloud like). Talalay will give you more of hugging cloud like feeling, however i feel this matress gives me just a bit of that cloud feel but does not sink and provides great support. Pros - Price (about half of Casper/Leesa) - Natural latex/Independent coils combo - This mattress does not impede my movement like most other foam mattresses did. - The mattress also appears to be good at isolating motion. - I noticed my sleep improved, and my fitness tracker shows slightly higher deep sleep readings. - This mattress stays cool unlike some infused foams. - Fully uncompressed quickly; was ready in about 2 hours Cons - - It has a faint chemical smell; less then other foam mattresses but still you want to air it out for about a week. - Box is heavy; you will need two people. - Returning can be difficult; as with any online mattress this has high shipping weight and is compressed into a fairly small package. You can't stuff it back into original box once unpacked.
Purchased this as a lower cost alternative to the EcoTerra. It’s a great mattress - no complaints what so ever - I got lucky with this one. For those that read these reviews here is some info that I would have found useful during my mattress search. The mattress sleeps cool, is of medium firmness, and surprisingly does not smell at all. It showed up compressed and rolled up in a box and was easy to deploy. Was ready to use in only a matter of hours. Good manufacturing quality. Decent edge strength. I am 5’11” 235lbs and am a side sleeper and sleep well on this mattress. No problems with stomach sleep or supine positions. I recommend this mattress as a genuinely excellent value. If you are looking for a latex hybrid mattress consider this from Wolf Corp. Definitely worth it. Will revisit this post in 3 months or so to see how it holds up with time.
We bought this mattress in a Full size to serve as a primary bed for our 5-year old daughter's room. We wanted to buy a high quality mattress that was not only good for a growing kid but for guests staying over from time to time. I came close to purchasing a LUCID mattress (I was sick of researching mattresses and just wanted to be done with this bed purchase) but ended up reading a professional opinion on Wolf mattresses which led to this purchase. I'm not a mattress expert and am really only writing this review because I feel compelled to help anyone who's finding themselves in a similar quandry. I read a lot about the benefits of latex mattresses and toppers and this mattress fit the bill as far as the latex component and high coil count. The mattress is firm and comfortable--my 72-year old mother in law snuggled in the bed with our daughter for 2 weeks and has decided that she needs to replace her existing mattress with this same model. It shipped quickly, was a great price and I have zero complaints.
I am very disappointed... I have been sleeping a lot lately on the floor next to my daughters toddler bed because of illness, so decided to get her a bigger bed and mattress.. Our first night's sleep didn't feel much different than the floor did. I'm not sure how to return such a large object, but will be looking into it. I like that it's more environmentally friendly and not chemical laden, but it's coils are a bit squeaky, too. Was hoping for a wee bit of comfort for this price.
Great mattress. Have had it for several months now and still love it.
I literally spent upwards of 3 months researching mattresses. Reading reviews, looking into material used to manufacture them, and more importantly, where they were manufactured. My objective was twofold. Find a mattress manufactured in the U.S. using materials sourced and manufactured also in the U.S. No easy feat. My second goal, equally if not more important, was to purchase a mattress that would make it relatively easy for me to transfer in to and out of from my wheelchair. You see, I have a spinal cord injury and as a result, paralyzed from the neck down. I do not have a caregiver, and have been virtually independent since the my, but as I age, the things such as transferring into and out of bed becomes more challenging. I thought I was being diligent and asking the appropriate questions. I even called the manufacturer, Wolfe Mattress, who I was elated to discover, had their factory right here in my home State of Indiana, which I found to be a plus. So after much research, I ordered the mattress in August, 2017. Here it is November, 2017, and tomorrow I have another mattress being delivered. This mattress, despite what I read in the reviews and was told by the manufacturer to be very firm, to me is anything but firm. If you like sleeping in a bit of a crater, and sitting on the edge of the mattress with it depressing like a marshmallow, then I would say buy two of them. I have experienced neck and shoulder pain since I began sleeping on this mattress, and I actually thought I had torn a rotator cuff in my left shoulder, until putting two and two together and realizing it is the mattress that is the culprit. It is extremely difficult for me to sit on the edge of the mattress and transfer into my wheelchair. Imagine, if you can, sitting on a huge marshmallow and the only way you have to get up from it, is to push down with your hands/arms and push yourself up, and all the while as you push down, the marshmallow continues to give and depress downward, plunging your hand deeper into it, and providing virtually nothing in the way of firmness to allow you to push yourself off it. I have a very nice custom made bed with a platform, and took special care to ensure that the mattress I chose was as close to level to my wheelchair seat as possible, to make my transfers into to bed and out of bed both easy and safe. The firmness of the edge of the mattresses I was considering purchasing was paramount to my needs. This mattress is really nothing like described. Yes, it looks just like the one in the pictures, but it is devoid of anything that I would consider support, and if you have any sort of physical limitations, especially if you have a spinal cord injury or any neurological deficit that impairs your ability to walk, stand, or move freely, I would not even consider this mattress. Additionally, what probably aggravated me the most, was the lack of Customer Support. I addressed this issue with both the Vendor of this mattress, OJCommerce (read their return policy before buying anything from them. I didn't until after the fact and am now paying the price) and the manufacturer Wolf Corporation. OJCommerce never responded to any of my messages, and Wolf Corp. responded by saying they were sorry I had this problem, and that was it. So their solution was no solution at all, simply put, nothing but a hollow apology. Tomorrow my new mattress arrives.......a Sealy. It cost a couple hundred dollars more, but I have regretfully discovered that you cannot put a price on the creature comforts that a good mattress provides.
This is my 4th memory foam mattress (the first one was one of the store brand expensive type and was hot, sunk). ordered it for a full size bed for guests. I slept on this for two nights and this is by far the best of the four I have owned. It has a "firmness" but is not too squishy. The surface cover is soft, and almost has a "pillow top feel". I was on vacation a couple of weeks ago and slept on a high dollar foam mattress and was not impressed, sunk down and it was way too soft. I sleep without tossing and turning and wake up without my hips and shoulders aching. Definitely a good quality mattress for a good price.
The Wolf mattress we purchased from Hayneedle less than 1.5 years ago has a permanent dip where my daughter has slept. She only weighs 130 pounds. It has proven to make the mattress uncomfortable at this point. We have been informed that they would charge us 40% of a new mattress AND the costs to ship/exchange IF the depression is proven to measure at least 1.5 inches deep. Also, the replacement has ZERO warranty. Why would anyone give the company more money to potentially be stuck with the same problem. I would rather be told that a mattress is being sold as-is with no warranty expressed or implied. I would search a little longer or pay a little more up front.
