Stearns and Foster has been around for a while -- and by a while, we are talking over 150 years. It is a luxury name brand mattress and part of the mattress conglomerate Tempur Sealy, of which Tempur-pedic and Sealy Posturpedic are also members. Because of the business efficiencies gained in all of those years selling mattresses, there is some serious branding behind them. But what do the consumers think?
Urban Mattress is both a retailer and a brand of mattress. They were founded in Boulder, CO in 2008 with only one store and have grown to 14 stores in over 12 cities across the US.

I am not accustomed to writing a negative review, especially after reading so many reviews that are positive; but please beware because you too could experience the same circumstances that we are currently experiencing. Unfortunately our experience with the Dartford Ultra Firm Mattress Set is not so positive; perhaps it is possible that we received a “substandard set”. At any rate, my husband and I saved and planned for this very expensive purchase for our retirement comfort and because we wanted a very high quality mattress. Additionally, before we made the decision we read numerous reviews, and we were convinced that this Stearns & Foster mattress would be the best for us. Well we’ve had our set for a little over one year and we have rotated it approximately twelve times just to keep it balanced, and still it has sags and there is a very conspicuous ridge in the middle of it.
We were informed that Macys has a very strong Customer Service satisfaction rate, so we contacted Macy’s regarding our experience and they advised us that an inspector would evaluate our concern and provide feedback to them. As we assumed it would be, the evaluation was not to our advantage. So it appears that the purchase that we thought would be very satisfactory especially given the reputation of Macys and Stearns & Foster, did not provide us with the value, quality and comfort that we expected Macys to stand behind. I would advise everyone to think twice about purchasing a mattress at this price point from Macys.
Purchased adjustable mattress from Sleepy's. I paid almost $4,000 for this mattress. A hole appeared in the mattress after two years. It is getting bigger. Stearns and Foster refuses to either repair this mattress or replace it. I am still paying off this mattress.
I have to give Bedding 0 stars. I have the bedding for less than 5 years. My husband and I are senior citizens (72 and 75 years of age). We took the proper steps, according to the Warranty Claim. Which is a process consisting of taking numerous photos of the king size bedding: remove mattress, box spring take photos, measure sinkhole with a string etc. That being said - this was not an easy job. The photos did not show the sinkhole correctly due to our inexperience of performing this task. Our claim was denied. I wanted a representative to come to my home and take professional photos - that is not their policy. They would like us to retake the photos - they do not care that it would be basically a hardship for us to go through that procedure again. Do not buy Stearns and Foster Bedding. What good is the warranty.
I purchased the Beth Luxury Plush mattress on 5/27/2012 from Ashley Furniture Company. There is a sag in the middle and no matter how much I try not to roll into the sag I wake up in the middle of the night in the center where the sag is with back and hip pain. I read the reviews and realize I am in a hopeless situation. I am waiting for my appointment to have my sag measured but I already feel like it is a waste of time. It's really sad how this company is selling consumers very expensive mattresses and then have all these crazy loopholes in the warranty. Just from the number of consumers that have complained about the same issue I'm sure they realize that this is a major issue with their mattresses. I am already preparing myself to buy a new mattress because it is impossible to sleep on my Luxury Stearns & Foster. I am currently sleeping on a Futon bed in my spare bedroom as I wait for my measurement appointment.
We bought a Stearns & Foster mattress about 3 years ago. We were told it would provide great support for our back. We were also told it would not sink in on each side. This mattress sinks on each side and there is obviously a big hump in the middle. This all started within the first 6 months. We have turned the mattress, stood it up, whatever we could think to get rid of the sunk in parts. We are extremely disgusted that we spent so much on this mattress and are currently shopping for a new mattress. My husband and I are tired of waking up with extreme sore backs. My husband a lot of times ends up on the couch to get a better night's rest.
I purchased a Stearns and Foster Cora Queen sized mattress from Sleepy's in Maryland in June 2014. After a year, I noticed indentation in the center and on the top corner. I noticed that my body aches and that it's hard to get out of the bed because of the center indentation. For the past six months, I noticed the back aches worsened. I put in a claim form to Stearns customer services on February 26th and have not heard from them. After reading complaints about the same exact thing regarding the Stearns and Foster mattresses, I see I'm not the only one. I paid a lot of money for this. My last mattress lasted the whole 10 years before needing a new one. After reading the complaints, it looks as though it's difficult to get your money back even though you are under warranty.
I'd like to start out by saying that I have loved and slept incredibly well on my S&F Thornwood Lux Firm mattress for several years. Additionally, everyone who has slept in my bed has commented on how comfortable it is (even now, admittedly). However, having said that we're at the 6 or 7 yr mark and it's definitely showing signs of wear. I'm a bigger girl, so I understand that takes a toll and can create indentations. I rotate my mattress a few times yearly in an attempt to delay wear, but now it's hard to find a spot without a dip. I tend to wake up in the morning with a sore lower back, and I can no longer sleep in past 7 or 8 hrs. I have read that mattresses tend to give you 7-10 yrs on average, and I was hoping that being a more luxurious and reputable brand I'd make it to the end of that time frame with this one. Although I was looking to possibly replace it with another S&F, some of the reviews of newer models make me question if that would be a wise decision.
Please beware of a mattress from this Company. We are having the same issues as mentioned by most on this site - sagging and dipping of mattress where you sleep. Stearns & Foster will not do anything. Paid thousands for this mattress. Do not buy this product. Poor craftsmanship and very poor customer service. Beware Beware Beware!!! Would give "0" stars if it were an option. Shame on you Stearns & Foster.
I purchased my third set of Stearns and Foster mattress in June 2014. Eight months after it started to sag. I filed a claim with the retailer, they sent their expert at my expense. Conclusion was that for the warranty to take place the mattress had to have 1-1/2 inch of measurable sag. Out of luck and out of $2,705.17 for the Emilia Rose PL Queen mattress. Needless to say that we cannot sleep on that bed any longer because it may not fulfill S&F's 1-1/2 inch requirement but the mattress sags and there is no good sleep on it, not as the retailer suggestion that the "mattress is conforming to your bodies". Very, very disappointed. I guess that we no longer be purchasing this brand.
Bought the Stearns & Foster because of thinking more money means better product. No way, it is the opposite with the Stearns & Foster firm baroque. It is very uncomfortable mattress compared to my Serta perfect sleeper. I own Serta perfect sleeper firm already and this Serta is much better for me than Foster. I'm in progress of returning back the Foster any day now just waiting to order another Serta perfect sleeper for half the price and much better comfortness. Now I know when people say more is not better and like channel designer said less is more.
I honestly can't believe how awful this mattress is, and I've purchased quite a few over the years. Like many before, I got this one from Art Van because they've always made the process easy, and have a good selection. I went through their mattress match-making system and really took my time selecting. I thought I made a good choice, and was very happy with it at first. Within a year, we both could feel a definite sag in the middle, developed worsening back and hip pain, waking constantly.
I called Art Van and they courteously sent a service rep out to "measure" by stringing a line across the top with weights on both ends. To meet the requirement for "failure" I learned that a mattress has to have a 1 1/2 inch measurable sag. The problem with this is that the plush top mattress can still have the foam and cushion stay "up" while the firm foundation under it has clearly weakened. Mine "measured" about 1 1/4 inches so it appears I'm out of luck. I sure wish I would have looked for reviews because it certainly is easy to find people who have had the same terrible experience. Let the buyer beware.
I've read the negative reviews about Stearns & Foster and agree with every one of them. My king mattress is a Queens Gate ultra firm, is five years old and is defective in the center. Of course the fine print in the "warranty" specifies the inches that it has to sag and says I'd have to pay for inspection and transportation. I couldn't figure out why my back and hip (I'm a side sleeper) were hurting and waking me up at night. Then I felt the center of the mattress, which is where I was sleeping, in a moment of revelation. And although you can't see a sag in the middle, you can feel the difference between that area and the parts of the mattress that would be the twin size areas. It's insidious and of course gives the manufacturer an out from giving me any consideration. So I'm sleeping on one side of the mattress, which will also obviously degenerate.
I'll never again buy this brand. I tried to call their customer service number, and was told via recording it'll be closed due to "unforeseen circumstances" and they don't know when it'll open. Lovely. Whatever happened to pride of manufactured product, or customer satisfaction? I'm not even trying to deal with Sears, which is not much better. I'm waiting for Sears to send me the credit card statements so I can send it on in another post.

So we received our 4th replacement from Stearns and Foster and decided to switch the type of bed all together. Sears was great to work with, they even credited us $890 on the difference of the upgrade so we paid an additional $300 to go with the lux estate ultra plush hybrid bed. This bed is soft as expected unless our other plush beds that were delivered were hard and felt cheap and the knobs were laying on top of the mattress instead pulled down. The adjustable base sometimes goes down on it own and smells weird still after 3 months. Smells like hay is the only way I can describe it. But I would recommend the lux estate hybrid ultra plush bed if you are looking for the softest bed!
I would give zero stars if possible. I purchased a high-end Stearns and Foster bed a couple of years ago. I noticed the indentations about a year after purchase. I thought my back and hips were hurting due to exercise, but I think it's this cheaply made bed. I can't believe they are allowed to stay in business with ripping people off. We had a bed before this one for about 20 years and no problems. I don't think beds should cost $3000 and last a year!
We bought a Stearns and Foster in March 2013 at Sears in Columbus, OH. We now feel like we need to buy a new mattress because of the indentations and sagging causing us back pain. Will never buy another Stearns and Foster.
Have this Stearns and Foster high profile for just over a year. 14 mo. to be exact. I weigh approx. 130. Live alone! Stay home 6-8 mo. a yr. This mattress crapped out in about 6 mos.!!! I'm disgusted! 3 grand plus for the Lux! No! I've paid people to rotate, after a few weeks I'm in a rut. Just awful.
Bought a bed March 2015. The middle is already sagging. Called the customer service for Sleep Train. Erica informed me that all claims would be denied because I did not have a bar with a leg in the middle of my frame. Of course, I was not informed that was recommended when I first bought the bed for $1800. With all the bad reviews, on this site alone, I will STAY AWAY from any Stearns and Foster bed forever!!! The customer service was of no help. On a side note, as I was talking to the salesman about my problem, someone else walked in with the same problem. Guess what kind of bed that was??? Stearns and Foster.
We purchased a Stearns and Foster king Douglas House LXP with box springs for $2,500+. Clearly this is the worst mattress we have ever owned. Within a year the mattress sagged, though not more than 1 inch. But it was like sleeping in a wagon wheel rut. Hips, shoulders, back and knees ache every night. Stay away from this product.
We bought our king size mattress about 6 months ago and two months into it there were sagging spots on each side. The indentations are so bad that sleeping has become very uncomfortable. I feel cheated and taken advantage of. Will never EVER buy another S&F product.
I bought the Stearns & Foster Queen mattress for $1500.00 and within 2 years the middle sagged so bad I had a hard time getting out of bed. I am physically fit, normal weight and swim laps regularly, walk and stay active. This bed made me feel tired and achy every morning. I finally replaced it with a Jamison for half the price and sleep great now. I put the S & F upstairs in the guest room but no one wants to sleep on it. It will go out on the curb.
My Husband and I purchased a King Stearns & Foster Mattress/Box Spring from Ashley's Furniture. 22 days after sleeping on the mattress - deep sleep indentations started to incur on both side. I called Ashley's upset and scheduled a rep to come out to measure. 1" in deepest spot (after 22 DAYS!) and rep said warranty only replaces at 1 1/2". Again, why should we even have to call a rep after owning a mattress for 22 days?? I read reviews warning me about sagging issues prior to purchasing and I took a chance that it wouldn't happen to us. Just like other postings - I was also told to just keep having a rep come out until it reaches 1 1/2". Very disappointing that we replaced a good mattress that we had with this one. I will not be purchasing a S&F again.
I purchased a Stearns and Foster queen size bed and box spring that was promoted by the sales representative as a superior bed set that was very firm. It was firm to my satisfaction when tested on the showroom floor, so I purchased it believing I was going to receive a very firm, high quality bed set when delivered..Shortly after delivery, the bed dramatically lost its firmness night after night. The normal body indentations you were to expect I read about on the Stearns and Foster website that were surpassed in the first two months.
Updated 12/16/2015 - I purchased a queen Stearns & Foster bed set, and after only a couple of months with just myself sleeping on it, the bed began to sag uncomfortably. But not to the satisfaction of the warranty requirements when measured by an individual Sealy sent out to my house to measure the bed in a place on the bed where it is impossible to sleep. Plus it was measured many hours after I had awaken and was off the bed, whereas any indentation that was there had risen to a perceived normal level. Customer service was unprofessional and unsympathetic when dealing with me and my concerns regarding the purchase of their product and the questioning of their warranty evaluation methods. If you are considering purchasing a Stearns & Foster bed, do your homework by reading the many reviews on the net, test many beds and research the ones you test. Good luck and happy shopping.
I bought a Stearns and Foster Firm Luxury Mattress in March of 2014. I thought I was buying comfort, boy was I wrong. When waking up in morning, we find that our hips are extremely painful (we are both side sleepers). We also find that we roll to the center of bed. I called Ashleys (that's where I bought it from) with my problem. Appointment was made and craftsmen came out. He said that I did not have a depression of 1 1/2 inches and that there was nothing they could do. I said what about my warranty, he said I did not fall in the guidelines. I bought a firm bed not rock hard. So I'm stuck with a product that I cannot use without waking up in pain.
Paid over $2600 for a king-size Stearns & Foster mattress at Sleepy's. Came with a 10 year guarantee. After 2 years, terrible indentation on both sides where we sleep. After trying to use kit they send from Marshall Mattress and downloading pics, could not do. I am a senior and this was very difficult. Called and asked for representative to come do. After much begging, pleading and screaming they sent rep.
Received a call from Sleepy's only 3 days after this (before rep came) and they told me claim denied and mattress satisfactory. I could not believe my ears. When I said, "Oh really? They haven't even been here yet." Person on phone was speechless. After rep came and actually said to me, "THIS MATTRESS IS HORRIBLE" I got a call days later from Sleepy's telling me depression in worst spot was 1" and warranty Stearns and Foster puts out, depression must be 1 1/2". I told rep, "I am going to chiropractor regularly and what am I supposed to do???" She answered me stating I should call back in January and maybe sinkhole will reach 1 1/2." I could not believed my ears.
This is ridiculous and totally unacceptable. I will be calling back every single month demanding they remeasure. I am so disgusted with both Stearns and Foster and Sleepy's. After reading other reviews, I realize this is ongoing problem and horrible company and mattresses. DO NOT BUY STEARNS AND FOSTER!!!
I bought the Stearns and Foster Italian Garden mattress and right away it had deep body impressions. It was replaced and the new one only 2 months old has the same deep body impressions. For $2800 I expected more.
Always suspect companies that leave no way of contacting them on their website. At Stearns & Foster's website you can read all kinds of fancy writings, but no e-mail address to contact them. There is an 800 number and good luck trying to talk to alive person there. You can even see the "file a warranty claim" link on their website, but it does not work (broken link). It is a shame... The company sells mattresses for thousands of dollars and does not stand by their products. When it comes to warranty their defective items, it hides behind Sleepy's, Mattress Marshalls and the "fine print" on their warranty. My experience with Stearns & Foster was terrible in all aspects: the product - low quality, the support - none whatsoever, and the people there - always acting like I did something wrong and never at all interested in learning why their product failed.
Just like most people, our mattress started to get the sinkhole. I called the warranty department who sent us a "kit" so we could measure the sinkhole. It was a pain to take all the pictures with string. I put extra weight on the ends of the string which made a difference, BTW. While we were doing the pictures I discovered that the box spring had a huge sinkhole too. It was becoming a huge pain to get the pictures and do the warranty so we decided to try buying a new box spring for our King size bed which solved the problem. When we received our new box spring we took apart our old box spring and discovered that the metal frame bends super easy. I think the problem is in the box spring for a lot of these mattresses failing. It was cheaper to replace one of the box springs than a new mattress.
I am very unhappy with the Stearns and Foster luxury firm bed I purchased 5 months ago. I tried the bed out at Bernie and Phyl's in May 2015. Bed is now 5 months old. No way is this bed a firm mattress. There is no way this mattress has the same support as the mattress I tested out in the store. This is the second mattress I received from the store. Could be poor quality control or dare I say bait-and-switch. I feel the mattress companies do not live up to the quality they advertise. The mattress sags badly and has no core support. It sucks.
I've read many negative comments on Stearns & Foster mattresses. Unfortunately I need to agree with all of them. Their commonwealth mattress that we bought in SEARS in January 2014 was a deep disappointment to us. The previous mattress lasted around 12 years and it was time to change it. Being aware of importance of having a good mattress and after reading some good reviews on S&F we decided to go ahead with their product. It cost us over $2,000 - supposed to be a high end mattress and we were convinced that we've got good quality product.
Few months later we both stated experiencing sagging and uncomfortable sleeping with some pain in back etc. Measuring of sagging as per company's standard did not help to claim warranty because it was showing less than 1.5 inch. Warranty soon expired anyway. Problems with sagging continued growing with geometrical progression and now year and half after purchase we are forced to think about replacing the mattress again. Never more S&F one.
This mattress sags so bad in the middle, it's like sleeping in the pothole. You have to hang on to the side of the bed to keep from sliding to the middle. We contacted the store that we purchased the mattress from and they informed us that we do not qualify for any warranty on this. Be careful when buying their hardside mattress, you may have the same problem that we have. I do not recommend purchasing a Stearns & Foster mattress. We truly regret purchasing this mattress.
I too, purchased the Sterns and Foster luxury mattress set 5 years ago, however, I started having issues with a huge dent within the first two years. I called to have someone come and look at it, in fact, three different people came to my home and evaluated the mattress. I am so disappointed in this purchase and even more with Macy's who passes the buck to Quality Control. No one has done anything about this expensive Dent issue. And to think, I am the only body that sleeps on this bed and I only weigh 93 lbs. Go figure! My spare room has a Sealy, used by much more weight than I, and used for same amount of time and there is absolutely no dent. Again, go figure! Be advised, do not spend your money on this huge mistake of High Quality.
This is our third Sterns and Foster Mattress. We had been so please, we saved our money and bought a new mattress for our retirement. We thought at first it was our imagination the mattress was sagging. We rotated the mattress as directed but not solution to the mattress. I have a back injury from a fall. I am in a wheelchair. I am in constant pain and added to lupus I spend extra time bed ridden. I cannot sleep as I am sliding to the end of the bed. The last rotation the mattress looks like a wave. My hope that the mattress will be replaced. If not think I will sell tickets to a new ride BED SLIDE. Our 40 pound dog refuses to sleep in her usual place at our feet. She gets closer and closer to the top of the head board. I am sliding off the bed. I awake to serve pain and inability to move when I find myself in one of the valleys in the mattress. We purchased the bed at Sears. Another fine company that it sounds as if they at least can be trusted to at least listen . I appreciate that people took the time to write about their experience. So sad that this fine company does not stand by its reputation.
I bought a Stearns and Foster mattress in March of 2018. Started sagging in November 2018. Called Haverty's and they sent someone out to "measure" the density. Said it was "short" by 1/4 of an inch. I've had the mattress less than a year and it started sagging, seriously!!.. They decided to replace. Guess what, the replaced mattress started sagging. Contacting my credit card company and put it a complaint for a refund. I bought from Haverty, not the mattress company.
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.
