Amerisleep Mattress Review and Complaints

Amerisleep is a company that has a popular line of memory foam mattresses. They put extra time and care into the construction of their mattresses, resulting in great quality with a few features that make them stand out in the crowded mattress market.

Though generally I’m a big fan of Amerisleep, I have some complaints as well.  I like their concept of having a line of mattresses that are all catered to different types of sleepers.  If you believe that there’s no one best mattress for everyone, then Amerisleep might be a good company to take a look at.  Anyways, read on for my full Amerisleep review.

Amerisleep Mattress Review

Amerisleep Mattresses I Have Reviewed

AS4 (formerly known as Colonial)
This mattress is great for side sleepers and for some combo sleepers. It has extra measures put into its construction to help you sleep extra cool. See my full Amerisleep AS4 review.

AS3 (formerly known as Liberty)
This is the one mattress that is great for all types of sleepers. It is also one of the most popular models and comes at a very affordable price.  All in all, it’s a great value and can be a good fit for a lot of different types of sleepers.  If you have average sleeping preferences, then I would take a look at this model.  See my full Amerisleep AS3 review.

AS2 (formerly known as Revere)
This mattress is specifically tailored to stomach and back sleepers. It is also one of the more popular models.  See my full Amerisleep AS2 review.

Common Themes Across All Amerisleep Mattresses

  • Celliant Cover– There are numerous studies that show celliant can have certain health benefits. I would encourage you to look into these studies for yourself (I’m not a scientist so can’t vouch for the claims myself). If true, having celliant in the cover could produce more restful sleep on top of other health benefits.
  • Bio-Based Foams– Rather than having 100% petroleum-based foams, Amerisleep mattresses use bio-based foams. For me, that means a slightly greener product and typically a cooler sleeping environment.
  • Memory Foam Feel While Still Responsive– Amerisleep mattresses have the quicksand memory foam feel, but they are much more responsive than most other memory foam mattresses. That means the foam returns to its normal shape fairly quickly and you won’t have the feeling of getting stuck in your mattress.
  • Each Mattress Caters To A Certain Type Of Sleeper– Amerisleep doesn’t believe that there is one best mattress for everyone. That’s why it created a line of 5 mattress models that have a different firmness level and are catered to certain types of sleepers. Make sure you understand which type of sleeper the model you are looking at is catered to.
  • Sleep Cool– With celliant in the cover, bio-based foams, and a few other characteristics, all Amerisleep mattresses do a really great job at sleeping cool. This addresses one of the most common complaints that memory foam mattress owners have.
  • Unique Manufacturing Process– The company has a very unique closed air manufacturing process that is a much more “green” way of manufacturing. It also makes for more durable foams.

Summary
Overall I really recommend the mattress. I tried the Colonial, which is a little softer and great for side-sleeping. The Celliant technology is industry, but personally I didn't appreciate it or notice a significant impact during my short trial. I will say the mattress slept very cool, and delivers a great comfort/support tradeoff.

You Will Love Amerisleep If…

  • You Don’t Believe There Is One Best Mattress For Everybody– Amerisleep has a line of five mattresses that are catered to different types of sleepers. Their philosophy is they will have greater success if they match their line of mattresses with the individual sleeping preferences of consumers. This contrasts with the one mattress for everyone philosophy at other companies. If you believe having different options with different firmness levels is a good idea, then Amerisleep is a good company to look at.
  • You Like The Memory Foam Feel– All of Amerisleep’s mattresses have a memory foam feel. That means the foams are somewhat slow-moving (although less than most other memory foam) and you slowly sink into them.
  • You Want To Sink Into The Mattress A Bit But Don’t Like The Feeling Of Getting Stuck– Memory foam has a nice feel of pressure relief and the sensation of sinking into the mattress a bit. Memory foam can be very slow-moving, however, and some people feel like they get stuck in the mattress. That’s not really the case with Amerisleep mattresses. Their foam is much more responsive than normal memory foam, so you get great pressure relief without the feeling of getting stuck.
  • You Sleep With A Partner– All Amerisleep mattresses do a fantastic job at isolating motion. That means if your partner moves around, you generally will not be disturbed by their movement. Amerisleep uses high-density memory foam in its comfort layer, and that is what makes it so effective at isolating motion.
  • You Want A Foam Mattress But Want To Make Sure You Sleep Cool– Out of all the memory foam mattresses I have slept on, I would argue that all the Amerisleep mattresses I’ve tried have had the coolest sleeping surface. People often complain about memory foam and sleeping hot, but that has not been the case ever for me with Amerisleep. The celliant cover combines nicely with bio-based foams and a more open-celled foam structure to produce a nice, breathable sleeping surface that doesn’t get hot.

You Might Not Like Amerisleep If…

  • You Prefer A Traditional Innerspring Feel– If you’ve had success with traditional spring mattresses, then you might not want to get an Amerisleep. The feel is going to be very different and would at least take some time to get used to. With innerspring mattresses, you feel more like you are sleeping “on” the mattress than “in” the mattress, much more so than with Amerisleep mattresses.
  • You Like The Bounce Of Latex– Latex is known for being very bouncy/responsive. While Amerisleep mattresses are more responsive than most other memory foam mattresses, they don’t have the bounce of a latex mattress. If that is something you are looking for, then you might want to check elsewhere.
  • You Don’t Want To Pay For The Extras In The Construction– All Amerisleep mattresses have extra costs put into their construction. These things include a celliant cover, bio-based foams, and certain modifications to make the mattress sleep cooler. If you don’t ever sleep hot and/or don’t think you’d care/want the extras, then maybe there’s a simpler mattress out there for you at a lower price.

How Do The Amerisleep Mattresses Compare?

I’ve written a couple of articles comparing the main models to each other. See the links to those below.

Amerisleep AS3 vs AS2

The biggest difference between the most popular Amerisleep mattresses is the firmness/feel.  Check out how these three compare below:

Final Recommendation

Amerisleep is definitely a quality line of mattresses, one that I recommend wholeheartedly.

  1. I have had an Amerisleep Revere for two years and am happy with it. However four of my five queen sized sheets will not fit on it and the one that does fit is very hard to put on. Is there a line of sheets that fit these bulky mattresses best?

  2. Hi,

    I follow your YouTube and love your reviews. I’ve been on the hunt for the right mattress for a year and a half. I’m currently on the Winkbeds Plus, and it’s very comfy and well-made but not firm enough. 

    I’m 5’2″, 250lbs, side and back sleeper. I have chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain and MAJOR issues with sleeping hot. I also love memory foam. Amerisleep AS3 wasn’t firm enough for me, and I didn’t care for the Loom & Leaf feel. Your Tempur-pedic model breakdown review doesn’t have some of the newer models. Between the Contour Elite Breeze, ProAdapt Firm, and LuxeAdapt Firm, which would you recommend? I’m also considering the Novosbed Firm, the AS2, or Muse Firm. Any other mattresses you would recommend? 

    I’m also trying to help my mom find the right mattress. She is 5’1″, 90lbs, and a side sleeper. She has fibromyalgia and sciatic pain. The Wright W1.27 and Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm were too firm for her. She hates the feel of the Purple.3, so I would like to stick with an all-foam mattress for her. She finds the close out sale for the Tempur-Legacy tempting. 

    Do you know what the approximate durability for the mentioned Tempur-pedic models?

    Thank you,
    Karayah 

  3. Bought 2 AS1 twin mattresses 2 years ago. Not happy at all. The firmness (in the middle of the mattress) lasted about 6 months. I have “turned” them ( head to foot) and ended up actually putting a piece of foam between the boxspring & mattress to help the situation. Can’t afford to get new mattresses at this point. Sad to spend well over $1100 and get a backache every night.

  4. This is the worse mattress I’ve EVER had…… and I mean over my entire lifetime. I just turned 60 and recently moved and decided to get a new mattress. Based on reviews, I chose Amerisleep. I’ve asked for another one – hope it works but I tried the A-4 – and every morning I get out of bed is a struggle. Can/t stand up straight – Terrible. …

  5. I purchased this mattress after I came to the conculsion that my current mattress was causing me back pain. So I did my research and decided to go with amerisleep. I was about to order online then I found out you had a location in Austin I could go visit. I ordered this mattress on Sunday the 12th at an amerisleep store. Was told it would take 3 to 4 business days to ship. Called amerisleep on Thursday the 16th and was told the mattress has not shipped and could not tell me when it would ship. I canceled order due to frustration and poor customer service. Then I was told that the mattress would be here by Wednesday the 22end. On Monday I had yet to get a tracking number so I canceled order. Funny I was told that Amerisleep could overnight the mattress on Monday. Why was this not offered last week?? So amerisleep gladly excepted my $1100 for a mattress that I have yet to receive or a refund as of Wednesday the 22end. Also Mattress has to be shipped from Arizona so you have to pay Arozonas taxes which cost me $135 on a $1050 mattress.

  6. I currently have the as4 and I normally sleep on my side. im 5’9” and around 160 lbs and for me there was too much pressure on my shoulders but everywhere else felt fine, they did send me a topper which felt better but their topper seems to retain a lot of heat, i was wondering what other mattress you would recommend. I was thinking about the Nolah 12, layla or a helix, what are your thoughts?
