Stearns & Foster Website Reviews

The Hurston Collection

The first review is about the Hurston Euro Pillow Top Luxury Firm mattress by For Mom in New York.

“Best Ever! Mom is 85 and was sleeping on a mattress that was 25 years old. After falling in the garden seven weeks ago, I finally convinced her to buy a new bed. She said this mattress is helping her back feel better. That's a lot coming from a woman who has had multiple back surgeries and rods! Thank you!”

Nana Jean from Four Oaks, NC reviewed the Hurston Euro Pillow Top Luxury Firm with-

“Very comfortable mattress. Excellent sleep at night on this mattress. Very firm and supporting. Glad I chose this mattress.”

V W Lady from Oklahoma City reviewed the Hurston Pillow Top Firm with-

“Comfort. We feel this is the best mattress we have purchased to date! We sleep cool and wake refreshed. This hasn't happened for a very long time. Would definitely recommend this mattress to anyone looking for a good night's sleep. Delivery was delayed to Covid 19 but this was no fault of Stearns and Foster. It was in town just unable to be delivered. Thanks to your customer service department it was delivered! No more sleepless nights!”

AZ bedwarmer from Benson, AZ review the same mattress with-

“Love it. From the first night sleeping on our new mattress, it has been wonderful. It is very comfortable. Well worth the price!”

Ricky from Washington, MI reviewed it with-

“Highly recommend this mattress. Enjoyable nights sleep. Service outstanding.”

Sound Sleeper from Rural PA reviewed the Hurston Luxury Plush and said-

“Comfort Level All Its Own. After returning one of those bed-in-a-box brands; I had HAD it with mattress research and thought I would never find exactly what I was looking for. Stearns & Foster proved me wrong. I went to a local dealer and had a wonderful conversation about how cheaply produced bed in a box brands are and how Strearns and Foster puts pride, care and quality into their mattress brand. I tried one out on the showroom floor and felt like I had come home. This mattress is everything I love. Supportive, but cushy and comfortable at the same time. My husband loves it; I love it and we will never purchase another brand again. Thank you for a quality product at a reasonable price Stearns & Foster. I am sold for life.”

Rest Easy from Washington, MI reviewed the Hurston Pillow Top Firm and said-

“Quality and Comfort. Was in need of a good mattress. It's so comfortable. So glad I purchased it. Salesperson was very helpful and kind.”

IM from Houston, TX reviewed the Cushion Firm-

“First night on a Stearns & Foster. Simply amazing. Temperature and heat dissipation was excellent. [...] We both felt that we had the right amount of support, the right temperature and woke up rested. We were skeptical when we went to sleep but woke up in delight and felt our money was well spent upgrading to a S&F product [...]. We highly recommend S&F Estate Hurston for the level of comfort, support, and temperature [regulation].”

Yarborough from Greensboro, NC review the Pillow Top Firm-

“NO more body aches. I had a Tempur-Pedic and would wake up with asleep arms and legs. My shoulder and back as well as my husband's hurt. We LOVE our Stearns and Foster! We have NO more body aches and sleep like we haven't slept in years! Highly recommend[ed]!”

Professional Sleeper 101 from Albany, NY reviewed the Pillow Top Plush-

“Brings comfort to a new level! I recently just got the Estate Hurston after having my brother's old mattress for almost thirteen years. Once you lay or sit on it, you never wanna get up. Great quality! My back already feels better!”

John's choice from Erie, PA reviewed the Firm-

“Great quality mattress. I read the reviews and was hesitant to buy the estate mattress. Reviews of low spots after weeks, loose threads on top of mattress... None of that was true with our mattress. The mattress is firm but [the] top is soft and comfortable. I really like the extra support on the edges. I weigh 200 pounds and the mattress is just right for me. I typically sleep on my side but occasionally sleep on my back. The mattress is high quality and is heavy. I would recommend the Estate Hurston mattress.”

Michael G. from New York, NY reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“S&F's attention to detail is second to none! After happily sleeping on a Stearns & Foster Newgate Luxury Firm Euro Pillow Top for just over 10 years, I felt it was time for a new mattress. I knew I would choose Stearns & Foster again, especially with the new Navy color and the amazing details of their new product line. Since I loved my previous model, I [chose it] since it was going to be the closest to what I was used to. I am very happy with my mattress choice. It's firm and the Euro Pillow Top is nicely padded. [...] I look forward to another 10 years of comfortable sleeping. And when changing the sheets I get to look at a stylish, beautiful mattress! Lastly, I had communication with S&F customer service and they were excellent!”

Sound sleeper from Boston, MA reviewed the Cushion Firm-

“Perfect mattress for my comfort. I have been sleeping on this mattress for about a month and am pleased with my choice. I have lower back issues and prefer a firm mattress and this one is perfect. There was no need to "break" it in. I am sleeping much better now. I feel it was a value too, and I am not at all disappointed with it. I believe I will have it for at least 10 years.”

Restful sleeper from Bradenton, FL also reviewed the Cushion Firm-

“Quality and comfortable mattress. I love this mattress. I find it extremely comfortable and I fall asleep quickly without tossing and turning. I sleep all night and wake up without my back aching. I find it very easy to get in and out of bed. Thank you for making a quality and comfortable mattress.”

Cb from Tampa reviewed the Pillow Top Plush-

“Love my bed. It is very very comfortable yet firm enough for my back and neck!”

Happy Sleeper from Boynton Beach, Florida reviewed the Firm-

“Great investment for a good night sleep. This is my third time buying a Stearns & Foster mattress. Comfortable, durable, worth it.”

Better sleeper from Florence, KY reviewed the Firm-

“Better than I anticipated. The first night I didn't think the mattress was as comfortable as when I tried it in the store. When I got up in the morning, I realized my back wasn't bothering me. Every morning since, I feel really good when I get up which [...] wasn't the case with any other mattress. This is one of the best investments I have ever made.”

Happy Sleeper! from Lake Hopatcong, NJ reviewed the Cushion Firm-

“Amazing!!! I have never slept better! I have had 2 back surgeries and one neck surgery and this bed is amazing. Helps so much! Its firm yet has cushion, it's perfect. The only thing I don't like is that I have to get up and start my day or else I would sleep all day lol.”

JC from Lee's Summit, Mo reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Wonderful mattress!! I've had this mattress for 3 weeks and I love it! It's firm and supportive but also so comfortable and soft. I have fibromyalgia and really need my sleep. It gives me a great night's sleep! Very happy with it!”

Senior citizen from Boston,MA reviewed the Pillow Top Firm as well-

“Back and hip are grateful! Has helped my back and hip. Sleep all night!”

No more Sleepless nights! from Mobile, Al reviewed the Pillow Top Plush-

“I was in a terrible car accident & NO mattress was ever comfortable after that for any length of time until now. I always knew Stearns & Foster was the best mattress to buy but either could never afford it or just ended up w/ other more economical brands. But after yrs of suffering I finally decided to save & buy them. My old mattress was only 4yrs old & 1100.00 mattress but didn't hold a candle to Stearns & Foster! My 90-lb dog can jump up & down on his side during the night & I never feel the bed move & I'm only 20 lbs heavier. Also great 4 my arthritis. Thnk U!”

BLF from Flemington, NJ reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Best mattress I've ever owned. Back pain is gone, when I had it up until the last day I slept on a sealy plush. The quality is amazing. Only thing I would change is the price, but when you figure how long you will use it, it's definitely worth it.”

Finally Sleeping from New Jersey reviewed the Cushion Firm-

“It took about 2 days to get used to this mattress, after that I have to say we love it and my back feels so much better. I love that it's firm but not hard and we sleep great, I don't feel my husband rolling over all night.”

Relaxed from Belmont, MA reviewed the Firm-

“Comfortable product. We are very happy with this mattress, it's the best one we've ever had by far. Every detail is so well done and the comfort is incredible. We are sleeping better with less back pain as we sleep.”

Sound Sleeper in Upland, CA reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Excellent Mattress. We have owned Stearns and Foster mattresses for more than 50 years. We have greatly enjoyed them for comfort and for durability. The new one is different from previous models, but sleeps great and gives us the comfort we have come to trust with Stearns and Foster.”

The Rockwell Collection

As you saw above, the Rockwell Collection is a step up from the Hurston and comes with a special layer of Indulge HD Memory Foam in the uppermost portion of the mattress. Many have come to love this addition. Let’s see what they had to say on Stearns & Foster’s website.

Les from Reading, PA reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Comfortable. My last mattress was 100% Latex Firm comfort. I had that for almost 10 years. When I moved it was time for a new bed as I didn't want to haul the old bedding. I am very glad I decided to buy a new mattress. This mattress is so comfortable. Definitely ultra firm is better for my body. I noticed not being as stiff when getting out of bed. I was on the line with the firm and ultra firm, but so, so glad I chose the ultra firm. Anyone trying to choose I recommend laying on it for 20-30 minutes on each mattress in the position that you usually fall asleep in. [...] Remember a mattress is something that you will use every day for an average of 8 hours, that's 2,920 hours a year you will use this product. Hard to think of anything else you buy that you will use that much.”

Mott from Florida reviewed the Plush-

“Ache and pain free. I am looking for a way to return your product. Before we purchased your product my wife would be up and out of bed early, complaining about how her body aches, but she'd be up. Now that we have purchased your product, she [is] always in bed smiling and talking about how comfortable our new mattress is, waiting until the very last possible minute to get out of bed. Now I can't get her out of bed when she has nothing planned. On a serious note, we love your product, we both would wake up complaining about body aches and pains. About a week after purchasing your product, our bodies adjusted to the comfort of our mattress and have been ache and pain free since. I can honestly say there isn't anything I don't like about our mattress; great quality and comfort.”

Honey Pie from Lake Frederick, VA reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Most Comfy Sleep. I have had back surgery and could not sleep. After getting our new mattress, I have been able to fall asleep and stay asleep. This mattress has the perfect amount of firmness. Best sleep I've had in years.”

Frida2020 from Long Island, NY reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Best Quality and Ultra Firm Mattress. My two teenage daughters have been complaining that the memory foam mattress had caused them back pains and uncomfortable sleep. Since I have been sleeping on my extremely firm mattress for over 14 years without the problem, I purchased one ultra firm at PC Richard & Son after I tried at the store last October. My older daughter liked it after a few nights of sleep and has not made any complaint so far. So I bought a second one for my younger daughter last Tuesday, same ultra firm, she was so happy when she tried after the delivery. I already shared the experience with my close friends. I have registered the mattresses online for warranty and hope that I will never need it within 10 years. Great quality lasts!”

Relaxed for the next day! from Cedar Falls, Iowa reviewed the Ultra Firm as well-

“I can sleep again! I have very severe Rheumatoid Disease and I have not been a good sleeper because of so many painful joint issues. I had a mattress with a superior foam top, but I wanted something even firmer. After just one night on my new mattress, my joints felt better and I was well rested!”

Amazed Rested Mattress Fan from Cedar Falls, Iowa also reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“My life would have been wonderfully different... My life would have been wonderfully different if only I had purchased the Estate Rockwell mattress sooner! For the last two years, I suffered horribly from hip problems and could barely walk across the room. My doctors gave me steroid injections, none of which had lasting results. Surgery was discussed but delayed. Finally, I decided to go forward with my purchase and after just three nights of solid and relaxing sleep, my hip no longer hurt! I walked through the house without even thinking about my hip! This has been like a miracle! I am elated! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this mattress and I am extremely satisfied with the Standard Luxury Ultra Firm. I have severe Rheumatoid Disease and sleeping had been difficult for a long time because I tossed and turned all night long as I tried to find a comfortable position. However, with this mattress, I am amazingly comfortable on my back, my side or my stomach! I do not 'sink in' but I have the perfect amount of solid support that my joints, bones and muscles need for a deep sleep. I also have an adjustable base and the Standard Luxury Ultra Firm bends perfectly to create a wonderful chair-like position for watching television or reading. I love this mattress!”

Brenda from Cleona reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“RESTFUL SLEEP. Love it so far. Been sleeping on it a little over a week. Restful sleep. You get what you pay for !!!!!”

Renosome from Arizona reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Knew it would be great. Had a Stearns & Foster for 11+ years it finally needed replaced. We originally tried a mattress purchased online by what turned out to be a legit company. Kept it for 3 months and asked to return it like the warranty stated. Felt good in the beginning but seemed to break down and became uncomfortable, so we sent it back no problem. This Stearns & Foster is the only mattress that from the beginning was extremely comfortable and no back ache.”

Morpheus from Portsmouth, RI reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Like It, Love It, Gotta Have It! My wife and I love the Ultra Firm III, after 'test driving' it for two years at my brother's ski condo. Recommend you first write down the 12-digit serial # before making the bed!!! This makes registering for the warranty MUCH easier :-)”

Back Comfort from Roomstogo Miami reviewed the Firm-

“The Best Comfort. I have never slept on something more comfortable. This was the best investment ever. I think better than buying my house this mattress just hugs your body in comfort. I Loooove It!!”

Picky Pat from Columbus NC reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Everything we expected and then more. Everything we expected! Very comfortable and cozy. Next day delivery was amazing. We were given the red carpet treatment, literally, they put down a red carpet and wore shoe protectors.”

Very Happy Sleeper from Racine, WI reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Love it from day one! Slept all night for the first time in years! First I had the Estate Rockwell Plush because the salesman ordered the wrong one, Glad I chose this one!”

Hunter101 from Port Saint Lucie, Florida reviewed the Plush-

“Very high quality. I am totally impressed with the workmanship and quality of my new Stearns & Foster. My parents have owned Stearns & Foster for years and now I do too. Comfort level is beyond my expectations. An extremely wise decision to choose Stearns & Foster.”

Jamo from Chicago reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Wonderful bed. I enjoy it. I'm a stomach and side sleeper and I've been getting the best deep sleep. I've been sleeping for 8 hours and not even getting up to use the restroom. The bed is firm but comfortable.”

Cool Golf Bum from Ridgeland, MS reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Feels like sleeping on a solid cloud! Bought this product to help me with my back issues. Well three weeks later not only have my back issues improved, my sleeping experience has as well. The pillow top provides the sensation of like you're on a cloud, but the firmness of the mattress provides comfortable support.”

Happy sleeper from NH reviewed the Firm-

“Quality product. We've had this mattress for about two months now and it is everything we have expected. Unbelievably comfortable and great support. Highly encourage anyone to purchase a mattress from Stearns and Foster.”

Happy Sleeper from Stone Mountain, GA reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Excellent craftsmanship, complete comfort! I am getting complete comfort each night. No more back aches, side aches, waking up feeling refreshed!”

Side sleeper will from California reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“No more pain. I cannot say enough good things about this mattress. My old mattress hurt my back. Now I wake up with no more back pain. It is wonderful.”

In Love from Glocester, RI reviewed the Pillow Top Firm as well-

“I dream of being home in bed! I have joint issues all over my body. My body truly loves this mattress. It is firm yet has the cushioning to support my joint issues. I love laying in it so much that when my mind can escape during the day I think about how much I would love to lay down in my new bed.”

Lyd from Westchester County, NY reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Best Mattress I've ever owned. I slept on this mattress two nights so far. It's been the most comfortable sleep I've had in years”

Mary from Steamboat Springs, CO reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“This is our first Stearns & Foster mattress. We love the firmness and comfort.”

Luvztoread from Sunny California reviewed the Firm-

“Most Comfortable Mattress! I have been sleeping on this mattress as a side sleeper for almost a month and it's perfect. I wanted a mattress to replace my Sealy of 14 years and, because the comparable in this line was out of my budget, the salesman directed me to the Stearns and Foster. I wanted a firm, no pillow top, and the Rockwell Luxury Firm Tight Top is exactly what I was hoping for. So comfy! Had to get used to the dips from the tucks in the mattress, but in no way disrupts my beauty sleep. Happy, happy, happy!”

A Michigander whose back is happy from Ann Arbor reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Quality and comfort. In the two months I have owned this mattress and box spring I love it. This is an ultra firm and I have been sleeping well since it arrived. I hate the pillow tops even though they are supposed to be firm. I bought a Stearns back in the mid-90 and it lasted a long time, which is why I bought another now. The only thing I do not like is that it is so firm it is really hard to get the sheets and blanks tucked in. However, I think I can get used to this given the firmness of the bed. My back loves this mattress. Of course ask me in 5 years to see if this mattress has held up. Then I can really comment on the quality. But so far so good.”

Happy Sleeper from New York, NY also reviewed the Ultra Firm-

“Best Sleep I've Had in Years. It wasn't an easy decision to try the Ultra-firm mattress but I'm so glad I did. I sleep better, longer and awake feeling really refreshed. I did compromise by adding a nice soft mattress pad and the combination is unbeatable for me. I love it.”

Quilter from Nashua, NH reviewed the Pillow Top Firm-

“Sleeping great! This was the comfort and support we'd been looking for. We are sleeping longer and waking without aches.”

Sleeping much better from Dearborn, MI reviewed the Firm-

“Very satisfied with the quality and comfort level. This replaces a 13 year old plush pillow top. I am now a 60+ year old senior who needs a firmer mattress and to be able to sleep on my back. I found this mattress to be the most comfortable of all the mattresses in the showroom. I have been sleeping on this for almost a month and so far, I am not disappointed. It is a solid mattress and on the heavy side so if you want to rotate it, keep that in mind. What really helps is that there are handles on all four sides of the mattress which does make it easier, and something I do not see on a lot of the mattresses now. My only regret so far is that I waited too long to upgrade my old mattress.”

Haley from Tiburon, CA reviewed the Pillow Top Plush-

“Wish I got this sooner. I have been sleeping on a Tuft and Needle mattress for the past year and hated it. I decided to switch to a traditional, high end mattress company like Stearns and Foster and wish I did this sooner. I slept through the night for the first time in a while and woke up without any stiffness. The mattress has the perfect amount of support (I typically like slightly firm mattresses).”

Sleeping in Michigan reviewed the Plush-

“Very Comfortable Mattress. This is my second Mattress with Stearns and Foster. This was a replacement for our 12 year old Holly Court Mattress [...]. I was used to sleeping on a Mattress with other fabrics such as wool and silk and other foam near the surface. Now with the Infused Gel Foam it gives it a totally different feel. At first I wasn't so sure I liked the Memory Foam and Infused Gel because my 60 year old body is used to a different feeling from an old style mattress. I am a very fussy person too. After a month of sleeping on it I can truly say I love the feel. It is supportive and conforming at the same time. My back pain is so much better. My husband loved the feel of the mattress right from the first night of sleeping. We are both overweight people[...,] and it does a good job supporting us. I think this is a great mattress for two larger people who sleep together. [...] I can truly look forward to falling asleep now. [...] I give this Mattress 5 stars because it is difficult to find a mattress for two larger people with zero motion transfer and supportive comfort. I am a side sleeper and my husband a back sleeper. I do not think you will be disappointed. This mattress is a medium [...] right in the middle of very firm and very soft.”

Additional Reviews

The Hurston Collection

The cushion firm version of this mattress was by far the most popular online. There were also a few reviews for the luxury plush euro pillowtop version as well. Additionally, the luxury firm euro pillowtop also received quite a few reviews.

Big_G reviewed on

“Comfortable for medium firm. So far the mattress has been very comfortable and it is rated medium firm (4), but to me it feels very firm. My wife and I have had it for about two weeks now and we are still trying to get used to it. [...] The good part is that I feel rested each morning and no more tight muscles or cramps. We replaced our old rather soft Serta king with two twin XL's to place on an adjustable frame. I think we made the right choice.”

BaltimoreJack reviewed on Macy's-

“I Can Sleep Again. After performing extensive online research (including mattress reviews and ratings via a consumer reporting agency with whom I am a member), reading lots of reviews and testimonials, and finally physically testing; I am thoroughly satisfied with my Stearns & Foster Hurston Cushion Firm queen mattress set. I am a big guy (6'-1", 250 lbs) and sleep on my side. I had forgotten what it was like to get a good night's sleep before I purchased this mattress.”

Tstelzig reviewed on

“This mattress is incredible. My husband and I saved up for over a year to purchase this mattress. We put pennies away even to be able to afford it and let me tell you it was worth it. WORTH IT. We went to [the store] and laid on mattresses over and over and over again and we always kept coming back to this one. So we decided we’re gonna save up and invest and now we sleep like a newborn baby every single night. We have to fight our kids to not sleep with us cause they love it too much too. It is soooo hard getting up in the mornings because it’s like sleeping on clouds. If you’re hesitant about purchasing this, do it. Trust me. Just do it. You won’t regret it.”

E. said on

“I ordered this mattress and I have never had such a wonderful sleep experience. I wake up refreshed with no aches and pains any longer. I feel as though I am sleeping on a cloud. The cushioning supports my body with support. Highly recommend this mattress. We got a free adjustable frame. Love the ability to adjust the bed as well.”

HENRY on said-

“Excellent Product and Service. The Stearns & Foster Hurston Firm [...] I purchased [...] has proven to be, after two weeks of use, exactly what I needed. [...] My assessment is that I got an excellent mattress for a very competitive price[...].”

MARY ANN said on

“Excellent choice. [...] Mattress is well made and comfortable after sleeping on it for a few days. It's only been a few days so I can't speak for what might come. So far it's everything it's advertised to be. I did lots of research before purchasing this mattress and while it's not in the top 10, it certainly can be. I did not want a foam mattress or adjustable...just a traditional firm, comfortable, well-made mattress. This meets the list. It does have a layer of foam to soften the firmness before the coils, so it has the best of both worlds. I'm very pleased with this purchase.”

Blessed said on JCPenney-

“We love this Stearns & Foster mattress. We have not slept so well in years, sleeping very sound. This mattress was an awesome buy[...] and we would recommend [...] to all. This will last for many years over other brands. Great mattress.”

ALICE on said-

“Wonderful mattress; great service! My husband and I love our new bed. We paired the mattress with the ability to raise the top and bottom of the beds. I do a lot of reading so i love to elevate my head and neck while reading and then slide down to go to sleep. The mattress is very comfortable and I am not getting the neck aches I got with my other bed. [...] Highly. Recommend.”

JESSICA on said-

“Pure Comfort. We love this mattress. It brings the comfort of lying and relaxing in bed to a whole other level. My husband and I wake up refreshed and ache and pain free. This mattress cradles your body and feels fantastic! If you’re thinking about purchasing this - don’t walk, RUN to get it! It’s worth every single penny!”

TERRENCE also on said-

“100% satisfied! I picked this mistress up as a demo model. Awesome price, and value! I’ve been wanting a stearns and foster for years. I couldn’t afford it. This one was almost half off. [...] I’m sleeping so much better! Thank you!!!! I LOVE THIS MATTRESS!!!!!”

SHIRLEY said there-

“Stearns & Foster Hurston [...] Cushion Firm [... is v]ery comfortable mattress set. Happy with the 5” boxspring, just the right overall height for my wife. The mattress has just the right amount of top softness on top of a firm base. Sleeping great.”

JH on Macy's said-

“I do not want to get out of bed in the mornings!. I’ve had this mattress for a year now. I knew as soon as I tested it [...] that it was perfect for me. I have never slept better in my life! As far as a “breaking in” period, there is one. It felt a little stiff at first when I slept on my side, and I worried I made a mistake. About a month or so later, I knew I made the right choice. I actually look forward to going to bed and don’t want to get out of bed because I’m so comfy. I am a back and side sleeper. I occasionally sleep on my belly, much to the dismay of my chiropractor. It’s comfy for all sleep positions. I’m in my mid 40’s and have neck and back problems from car accidents, but I feel lots better after switching to this mattress. [...] This mattress is worth every penny!”

Stacy said there-

“Worth every penny. I LOVE this mattress! [...] We had enough restless nights and found this one in our local Macy's. I fell in love with it the minute I laid down on it. Plush and pillow top make it nice and soft. The coil count gives it the perfect amount of support. We've slept like babies every night since getting this. Worth every penny!”

BellaO also said there-

“Better than a hotel mattress. My husband and I love our new mattress. It provides the perfect amount of [pillowtop] plush while still providing firmness. We travel a lot and find ourselves missing our bed at home because it's so nice. [...] Overall worth it for the sale price we paid.”

MNFL also reviewed the plush there and said-

“Very comfortable mattress!! Great mattress. I love it. Plush and soft but not too much. You don’t completely sink in when laying down. But it is definitely a soft mattress which I love. I recommend this product if you like a plush mattress.”

Brittany on said-

“So comfortable. Had a sealy hybrid mattress that was $1500, ultra plush. Didn’t realize I needed firmer. Ordered this model, it’s so comfortable. It’s So well made. S&F is amazing, in that, they have double the amount of coils of its sealy comparison mattress. [...] I have severe sciatica from prior mattress, lumbar radiculopathy, migraines, I was waking up overly exhausted for a year. This bed fixed it. Also- I am 5”8, female, 225lbs [...], so the firmness is great, the support is amazing, but the pillow top makes it absolutely perfect.”

Michael on said-

“S&F's attention to detail is second to none! After happily sleeping on a Stearns & Foster for over 10 years, I knew I would choose Stearns & Foster again. The new Navy color is beautiful as is their attention to details. Since I loved my previous model, I chose the Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Euro Pillow Top which was closest to what I was used to. I am very happy with this mattress. It's firm and the Euro Pillow Top is nicely padded. [...] I look forward to another 10 years of comfortable sleeping!”

The Rockwell Collection

Many of the reviews seen for the Rockwell Collection were about the luxury firm euro pillowtop option with several for the luxury firm and ultra-firm as well.

Let’s look at what people had to say about the Firm Euro Pillow Top.

One review on said-

“Cradles Your Body. This Stearns and Foster mattress is a well made, substantial addition to our home. It replaces a Beautyrest that did not make it quite 10 years. I slept on this for about three months before writing this. Initially the conforming nature of the top layer of gel (or foam) was disconcerting. Your body weight makes you sink down and when you want to roll over you have to kind of dig out of a hole. So it took awhile to get used to this. Now that I have, I don’t think I can go back to a regular innerspring mattress. I can actually sleep on my back again!”

“Supportive but not too firm. Very happy with this purchase. The "luxury firm" name describes it well. It is very supportive but not rock-hard to sleep on because of the pillow top. We bought a pillow top of a lower grade before this one & returned it after 30 days [...]. Had to spend a little more on this mattress, but at this point, we're very pleased. The edge of this mattress doesn't collapse when you sit on it. Additionally, I sleep hot, and it seems to be good from that standpoint too. Thumbs up Stearns & Foster!”

DAVID on said-

“A great mattress that you don’t want to leave. My wife and I had been sleeping on [an old mattress] for 11 years but in the last year or so we’ve experienced many body pain issues that would immediately alleviate when sleeping in any hotel bed[...]. We’d tried all the new internet order mattresses, e.g. Casper, Purple, but all demonstrated the same issues. Going to the showroom, we thought we would try all the newer [memory foam], but after [...] just 5 minutes, side sleeping result[ed] in the same shoulder pain we’d felt at home. That wasn’t true for this Stearns & Foster in the showroom, and it hasn’t been true at home. My shoulder hasn’t woken up numb and tingling since.”

SUSAN on said-

“Luxurious Support. This mattress is superb. I have had sciatic back issues and find that the mattress improves the discomfort considerably. It is firm and yet supportive and plush; it’s the best combination of luxury and substance. I have been sleeping really well for eight or more hours per night of uninterrupted sleep and awaken feeling energized and refreshed. Very highly recommended.”

CAROL said there-

“Excellent support. We have owned the mattress for less than 1 week, and so far we love it. The night it was delivered was tough getting used to the firmness and it has softened somewhat over the past week. In one month, I predict it will be perfect. It offers great support without feeling too hard due to the plush euro pillow top. My fitbit sleep data has already improved since sleeping on this mattress!”

Let’s hear what was said about the Firm version.

Autumn reviewed on Macy's and said-

“Good night's sleep. This mattress is a replacement for a 13 year old pillow top. I wanted a firmer mattress and did a lot of research and testing in different retail stores. This one just felt good from the minute I laid down on it in the store. Has just enough cushion to keep it from feeling like sleeping on a board. [...] So far, I can honestly say that my hip and back pain upon awakening are now gone. I am a senior female and need firmer support for my body.[...] For now, I am enjoying a great night's sleep. Just wish I had gotten this a year ago.”

Susan E on said-

“Well made, comfortable beds. I would rate the Stearns and Foster Estate Rockwell a 4.8. The only reason I wouldn’t give it a 5 is because it is not as firm as my research indicated. They compared it to a 4 in firmness with a 5 being extra firm. I may have preferred a 5. The padding on top is perfect without going to a Eurotop. [...] We buy only Stearns and Foster beds as we think they are the best.”

Russ said there-

“The three bears. Between the website reviews, videos and with the help of my online assistant, I found the bed of my dreams. Ultra firm was too hard for me and Luxury firm was just right for my 6-3" 230lb back and side sleeping body. I tried other brands and types of mattresses and found my way back to a Stearns and Foster mattress.”

Kathy on Macy's said-

“Great mattress. After 3 years my Serta I series developed a large gulley on both the right and left side of the mattress. It was deemed defective and this is what I chose for our replacement. I didn't realize that the other mattress was affecting my back and my husband's shoulder, we attributed the aches and pains to getting older. After 2 nights on this mattress his shoulder pain stopped and my back pain has decreased dramatically. It is on the firm side but still very comfortable. Hopefully it will hold up, but based on my 2 weeks of sleep I would highly recommend this product.”

Allison on said-

“Highly Recommend this mattress. Love my new mattress. Just the right firmness and height. Definitely makes for a positive change to my sleep! This is my third Stearns and Foster mattress. Would strongly encourage others to purchase this brand for supreme quality and affordable price.”

JULIO said on

“Rockwell makes a great mattress[...]. I tried all the other mattresses and for the price quality and firmness, this was the one that was the best fit for me. I do a lot of driving some days over 500 miles and when I go to bed my body is aching, after sleeping on the Rockwell firm mattress I wake up like a new person. My wife is still getting used to it, after all it's only been 3 nights. I love it!!! That said, the firm is not for everyone, they also have the plush and that would have been my second choice.”

GIOVANNA said there-

“My husband and I really like our new mattress, so far it has lived to our expectations. I would definitely recommend it. The first couple of nights were a little tough since we went from a memory foam mattress to a firm mattress, but we have adjusted to it fairly well and are still getting adjusted. But as a whole, we do like it.”

PAMELA on said-

“Love our mattress. This mattress has definitely lived up to our expectations. The mattress is firm but very comfy and gives the support we were looking for. Salesman was fantastic, very informative, not pushy, we went in looking and decided to buy. We found what we were looking for and are thrilled with our purchase.”

SANDRA said there-

“Love, new mattress less pain. Love this mattress. It's firm and requires a bit of adjusting to a better mattress. My old mattress, fit me! After experiencing some back and general body pain, I attributed it to not enough sleep from my old mattress. So I bought myself a gift, my new much loved mattress. Thank you and don't feel guilty for making a new mattress purchase to improve your sleep and your health!”

HARSHINA said there-

“OMG!! This mattress is perfect for me! I suffer from chronic arthritis among other back issues! I’ve been sleeping on this mattress for three nights! Perfect sleep... I highly recommended this one!!”

Tan on Macy's said-

“So far so good. Still remain FIRM and comfy. I always wanted a FIRM & comfortable mattress, but seemed difficult to find one that could stay FIRM enough after a year of use. It's been 2 months since I purchased this mattress, so far so good. Will see how it will stand after another 10 months of use! :)”

CAROLE on said-

“I will buy this mattress for every bedroom. I've been wanting a Stern & Foster mattress for over 30 years. I don't have any more upper or lower back pain. I sleep so good on this mattress. I'm so happy with the purchase. I highly recommend this mattress, make your body happy.”

NANCY on said-

“This mattress is great. I would recommend it [because] it's so comfortable. I love this mattress by far the best night sleep I have ever had. I wake up feeling rejuvenated and my body feels great. I have highly recommend[ed] this mattress especially if you have suffered any injuries and are still recovering.”

Let’s check on the Ultra-Firm version now.

Peter on said-

“High quality, supportive, and comfortable. The mattress is very expensive, and the King weighs around 250lbs. The top of the mattress has a pillow top, that feels very firm during the first 3 weeks. It does contour to your body, and then is very comfortable. The coil springs provide the support needed, and the mattress does an excellent job of dissipating heat. The mattress is definitely constructed of high quality materials. Overall my wife and I are very satisfied. We have had the mattress for 1 month as of this review. Also, I'm 5'11 and weigh approximately 225 lbs, with a muscular build.”

Sleep on Macy's said-

“Best Bed ever. Have looked and laid on beds for the last 8 months and none have come close to the comfort of this bed. There are different levels on this but the Luxury firm bed was the one. My husband and myself have back hip, leg, neck and shoulder issues and this bed has comfort for all. The sales associate Linda was a wonder. She told me all about how the mattress is mad and the different levels of comfort. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a new mattress [...]. Love it. Thank you.”

Let’s take a look at a few reviews of the plush version of the mattress.

Jen in cali on 

“Thrilled. Best nights sleep. So I've had this mattress for about a week now. [...] I really really like this mattress. I bought it with the adjustable base and I literally have not slept better in years. [...] I am just very happy with it all together. I know I've only had it for one week but I will update this review if I have problems.”

DNP1 reviewed on Macy's-

“Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell Luxury Plush LOVE. We LOVE our new Stearns & Foster Estate Rockwell Luxury Plush mattress. After many trips laying on Stearns & Foster and many other brands, we kept gravitating to this mattress. [...] From the first night, no more back, neck, or shoulder pain-Yay! The mattress is plush, but still provides support even without being broken in. My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised. We can't wait until the break-in period is finished-this mattress is a godsend for back and side sleepers.”

Victoria Mel said on

“Perfect mattress! [...] We originally went with a Serta I-series, which ended up being a huge disappointment. [...] Our old mattress was Stearns and Foster so we decided to go with the Rockwell and so glad that we did! It is very comfortable and the perfect balance of support and plushness! Will see how it does over time but we are very pleased so far! Highly recommended!”

ABI66 said there-

“Stearns and Foster Rockwell. Hands down the best Mattress in the planet. I was skeptical about getting the mattress and had no idea what to expect. My life would have been much different if 5 years ago I would have bought this mattress instead of a sealy. I suffer from syatica and my fiance from sleep apnea so it was a hard decision to make. Now we are cool and comfortable. Can sleep on my back or side no problem. Very grateful, thank you Stearns and Foster for the Rockwell collection.”

LINDA on said-

“Restful sleep :) I suffer from terrible back pain these days which was affecting my sleep. Buying this mattress was a God send!! I am now getting restful sleep and not waking up with terrible back pains anymore. The best investment ever made!!”

Martha said on Macy's-

“Love this mattress!! This mattress is so comfortable. It’s firm enough to provide good support, but is so well padded. I have arthritis and am often very uncomfortable at night because it’s so hard to find a mattress that’s softly padded and still offers the support I need. This really does it all and you can feel how well made it is. My husband has the same mattress in the firm. It’s way too firm for me but he loves it.”

LAKISHA on said-

“So far I'm loving it! I have been sleeping on this mattress for the past 11 nights. I also have an adjustable base. I love it! The only downfall is I cannot watch TV in bed. It's so comfortable I fall asleep. I would definitely recommend this mattress if you like a mattress that feels soft but has enough firmness to provide great support. (I'm not a small woman either ??.) I laid on it and fell in love.”

Snshnes on said-

“Pain free sleeping after 12 years. I just recently purchased the bed. It reminds me of the way beds used to be made and I have tried all the newer beds, Memory foam, sleep number and hybrid mattresses. So far I can say this is the first bed in 12 years where I am not tossing and turning all night because of pain. I hope it lasts.”

And lastly, let’s see what some reviews said about the Plush Euro Pillow Top.

Stephanie on said-

“Sleeping like a princess. I'm a picky sleeper. I notoriously don't sleep well at home and when we went mattress shopping my partner and I don't always see eye to eye. This is the best mattress we've ever slept on! It's cushiony but firm and supportive, snuggly but breathable and not overly hot. It's a five star hotel bed experience every night! 12/10 would recommend.”

David also said there-

“Perfect Plush! 5 Star! I like a firm mattress side sleeper. This is ultra plush with firm support. Very comfortable, firm at the same time. My firm posturepedic was giving me hip pains. This plush is as you sink into a firm, supportive and soft plush. Very pleased!”

JC on Macy's said-

“Pure Heaven I replace a tempurpedic cloud luxe. This mattress is pure heaven. It has more of the softness that my soft tempurpedic lacked with the same support.” 

PATTI said on

“Just what I expected! Greatness! Love this mattress.. My last one was a pillow top, I tried a full memory foam with no pillow top but was disappointed. If you're used to a pillow top, don't let anyone sway you to change! You won't be happy.”

Carrie on said-

“Worth every penny!! Seriously WORTH the money we spent! I no longer toss and turn all night as soon as we hit the sheets within minutes I’m out. Also with being pregnant it is perfect! My hips and back don’t ache the next morning.”

Belinda said there-

“The best mattress I have ever owned. This mattress is so very comfortable. I wake up feeling well rested and my body has no sore areas. I have a bad back and this mattress is the answer to my prayers.”

Todd said there-

“My life just changed for the best! The best mattress I have ever slept on! 100% satisfied with my purchase and the white glove service to deliver it to my home.”

ALLISON on said-

“Most amazing mattress ever! The best sleep I've ever had! I find myself waking up hours before my alarm feeling fully refreshed.”

Scott on said-

“Best is super comfortable and got it at a great price. I sleep on my back and my wife on her side. The bed is suited for both of us.”

Larry said there-

“Better sleep. Mattress is everything that was described in the details before buying. We can sleep in all positions and not move because of discomfort. Very comfortable and not much movement when the partner gets up. Glad we bought the better one.”

E D said there-

“Very comfortable. We are very happy with the comfort on our initial split king so we purchased another identical queen for the guest room.”

More reviews on said great things as well. David said, “Satisfaction. Just what I ordered, the right firmness. Stearns and Foster fan,” and Calvin said, “Absolutely what I was looking for....exceptional quality and comfort.”

James said there, “Extreme comfort. The mattress is extremely comfortable,” and Ashley said, “Much better than any bed in a box! Keep it classic!”

Lastly, David said there, “Comfortable bed. Worth the price,” and as simply as that sounds, that’s really what it comes down to. Is it worth the price? Are you comfortable? If so, you’ve found the right mattress for your needs.

Final Thoughts

We love this mattress collection from Stearns & Foster and think it was a wise choice on their part to produce such a wonderful mattress in such a large array of comfort levels so that no matter how you sleep, you’ll have the support and comfort you need.

If you’re considering a luxury mattress as a back, stomach, or side sleeper, and you’re just entering the luxury mattress world, a great place to start is the Hurston. If you want a bit more from your top padding, perhaps you’re a side sleeper, than the Rockwell is a great choice. These mattresses definitely hold true to the typical comfort level favorites of most sleepers. Side sleepers will like the plush and cushion firm options, where back sleepers and those with any medical issues will appreciate the firm options with or without the pillowtop.
