Rated 5 out of 5 by crberg Firm but a good value
For the price my husband and I figured it was worth it. We bought the king 8" mattress. I was a bit worried since I am not one for a firm mattress, but we figured for the price we can always buy a thin softer memory foam topper to make it just right.
We ordered site to store and it took a little longer than hoped, just over 10 business days. It was compacted in a manageable sized box and weighed 70 some lbs. It rose to full size fairly quickly and was sleepable in a few hours, though did take a few days before it was fully where it was supposed to be and the memory foam softened up.
Others have commented on the smell, and yes there was a chemical smell that lingered in the house for a few days. I have a sensitive sense of smell and it didn't really bother me.
It is a firm mattress. (If you want a comparison, the Ikea most firm memory foam mattress is somewhat similar). You sink in and it conforms around your body but still stays firm. If you sit or kneel, you really sink in, but once you lay down and disperse your body weight it holds much firmer. I am a small person, a bit over a 100lbs, and I don't sink in as much as I would like to. I think it is more comfortable for my husband.
Something to note is that it does seem to hold body heat a bit more than a regular mattress. For me that's a plus, but for those who like a cool bed, a pillow topper might be a good option if it bothers you too much.
All in all it was an excellent buy. I am going to wait a few more nights before I make a decision on a topper as each night seems to get a little more comfortable.

I have been wanting a memory foam bed for years, because I have back problems and always work up stiff to the point the I could not move. I can NEVER sleep on my back and the first night I woke up on my back and was affraid to attempt to get out of bed, because I knew I would be sore. Low and Behold I was able to get up and only had a slight discomfort. My back is feeling better and better every night I sleep on this mattress. When I noticed Wal-Mart sold these I started checking them out and reviewed ALL of the reviews. I did not have a smell from my mattress and that was one thing I was worried about. I just let the mattress air out about 3 days before I slept on it.
The ONLY down fall I have noticed is on the third day of sleeping on this mattress I was late to work one day and the next day I was ALMOST late to work. I sleep SO well on this bed that I DO NOT want to get out. I would recommed starting to sleep on it on a Thursday that way if you oversleep it will be on a weekend and you wont be late to work.
I have a coworker that has just purchased one and she will be getting it tonight, just in time for the weekend...
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE It.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gijoe8785 Nice bed
According to sleeplikethedead.com, 80% of users are satisfied with memory foam beds. 20% of customers who do not like memory foam either complain that is too firm or it gets too hot. Spa sensations is ranked pretty good on their site, that is why I purchased it over the Slumber 1. It comes in a box all compressed up. It fits in the back seat of a 4 door sedan. After taking it out of box, I would let it air out at least for a day due to the smell. The smell is not noticeable unless you have a sensitive nose and directly sniff at it. The first two days, it did feel too firm for me, but now its perfect. For $250 King size is a bargain compared to Tempurpedic.

This bed is awesome. When I first received it I was like no way will this expand to 8 inches. Well after 1 day it was at six inches. I know cause I measured it. LOL. Decided to wait one more day and call cust service and say I was sent a 6 inch however it met the ruler to the inch. My girl friend and I have enjoyed every night on this bed and don't wanna get out of bed. So much room. We are fairly large individuals and we bought the King for $250. A steal. I highly recommend this bed and the Slumber 1 foundation $95 for king frame foundation.

I purchase this mattress some time ago in a queen size. I love it!! I can not say enough good things about it. I have lived with back pain for many years and this is the first mattress that lets me sleep comfortably, My husband also has deginerate disc desease and also has a lot of pain, but he says that this mattress helps his pain tremendously! We have recommended it to many friends and relatives and they too are very satisfied.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BarganShopper35 Incredible Mattress
I have owned this mattress for just over 1 year. I did not expect great things when I ordered this mattress, despite the great reviews. I didn't see how a foam mattress could be that comfortable. But I live in a remote rural area and decided on this mattress because it is compressed in a box and I could transport it easily home in my car. It was a little difficult to get it positioned on the bed myself but not too hard. Some people have mentioned a chemical smell but I didn't notice any smell. It was fully expanded in a few hours and ready to be slept on that night.
For the first week it was definitely weird sleeping on the foam mattress but I got used to it pretty quickly. I didn't realize how comfortable it was until several months later when I went on vacation and stayed in a hotel. I was in an upscale hotel and it had a fancy mattress but I was so uncomfortable. Getting home and sleeping on my memory foam mattress made me realize how incredibly comfortable it is.
Still, I didn't think the mattress would last that long being foam - I'm a large person. But now it's a year later and the mattress feels just like it did when it was new, none of the 'sinking' or 'flattening' you see with the foam toppers.
I've decided to get a new bed (I want to go to a full from a queen) because my apartment is very small, so I made sure to buy the same mattress in a full. Now my only problem is how to get rid of the queen size mattress...
Rated 5 out of 5 by KNRover What a BARGAIN!
I purchased the 8" Spa Sensations king-size foam mattress in late December 2011, so have slept on it a little over 2 weeks. This is my first foam mattress and the first mattress of any kind I've bought online. I had the same apprehensions about buying it that most others have:
· You cannot "try before you buy", even though sleeplikethedead.com's research shows that people who do that are no more satisfied than people who buy online.
· Given the 4-figure prices of king-size mattresses in brick-and-mortar stores, $245 suggests a low-quality product.
· The difficulty of returning a fully-expanded king-size mattress, should I not like it.
However, I was persuaded to go ahead by the overwhelming number of positive reviews on Walmart's site.
Walmart service: They were absolutely great about keeping me informed of the order status (when it shipped and when I could expect delivery). I was amazed at the short delivery time – just 4 days from order to delivery, and that was the week before Christmas!
The mattress: It's made by Zinus (www.zinus.com). Their instructions for unpacking and decompressing the mattress are sparse, but the process is not difficult to figure out without instructions. One thing they do not do, and should, is print "Top" on the cloth cover around the mattress so you immediately know which is the memory foam side (which has to be on top). Be sure to check by pressing the side that's on top BEFORE it fully expands. Having to turn over a 70+lb. fully expanded king-size mattress is not fun.
The instructions note that "it might take up to 48 hours for the bed to fully recover". As others have pointed out, the mattress contains solvent residue that is quite noticeable when you first open the bag. During the 48-hour decompression time, we put a fan in the room to help disperse the solvent and slept in another room for 2 days. But for about the first week, I could still occasionally detect a slight smell that gets trapped between the mattress and the bed covers, but the odor is not detectable at all in the room. Everybody's reaction to solvent odors is, of course, different, but I never found it objectionable – not even when the mattress had just been unpacked.
After sleeping on it for 3 days, I was not a happy camper. I like a relatively firm mattress, which the Zinus website says this is, but as a few others have complained, it seemed WAY too soft. I was getting ready to return it to the local Walmart store when I stumbled on a review of a competitor's foam mattress in which the reviewer said that the warranty would be voided if it had not been supported on a RIGID platform. I had put the mattress on the box springs that had supported our old innerspring mattress. They seemed relatively firm, so I thought they would be OK to use. WRONG! After reading the review, I immediately bought a ½" plywood sheet, cut it to size, reinforced the area where my torso lies by doubling the thickness (to prevent contouring), and placed it between the box spring and mattress on my side of the bed to see if a "rigid platform" made any difference. OMG! The mattress's behavior was TOTALLY different – FAR firmer (exactly the amount of firmness I wanted) and no "sinking" in the middle. In an instant, the plywood had transformed it from a mattress I didn't like to THE BEST I'VE EVER SLEPT ON. Incidentally, I'm trying the plywood-on-box-spring approach because it's inexpensive ($30 vs. >$200 for a complete platform). If the plywood eventually bows, I will buy a platform. Regardless, here's the critical point: A FOAM MATTRESS MUST(!) BE SUPPORTED ON A RIGID PLATFORM. If you use a foundation that "gives" AT ALL in the center, the mattress will seem way too soft/will leave you sleeping in a "trough". It's probable that at least some of the reviewers on this site who complained that the mattress is too soft did exactly that – put it on their old box springs.
Note to Amazon and Zinus: Neither of your companies mentions this as CRITICAL to making a foam mattress work properly. I strongly suggest you put it in the item descriptions and EMPHASIZE it.
Warranty: Although it's a tad difficult to find, and no papers come with the mattress mentioning the warranty, it's 5-years, unprorated. Most other manufacturers provide 20-year warranties, although virtually all are prorated after the first 2-4 years. If you would feel more comfortable having a 20-year warranty for about the same price as the Zinus mattresses, try Amazon.com's Lucid brand, which, because they employ only high-density foam topped with 2" memory foam, are likely to be somewhat firmer than the Zinus mattresses, which use 2" of "comfort foam" between the memory and high density foams. But keep in mind that if you don't like it, you will incur a sizable return shipping expense. Unlike Walmart, Amazon has no brick-and-mortar stores to return it to.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tanga great value
I've had this bed now for about a year, bought a cal king size to replace the queen bed that we had before. My husband and I love this bed, it is every bit as comfortable as the $1500 serta memory foam queen bed that we had before. In fact, it was almost sickening to think that i could have bought almost 5 of these for the price I payed for the previous one. I would have to say that the only down fall is that it turned out to be a little firmer than I had hoped but over all it is great. I do recommend using jersey knit sheets with any foam mattress because they stretch better than traditional sheets allowing you to truly experience the mattress. great investment overall!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DuathlonDiva Great Matress!
I was very doubtful about getting any memory foam mattress after laying on them at a number of furniture stores- my husband fell in love the very first time, but it felt like a slightly soft piece of cememt to me.
So spending thousands of dollars was out as well- I wanted to spend as little as possible if we were going to be selling it & getting something else!
I began researching & came up on the Spa Sensations & settled on the 8", with my fingers crossed.
It was shipped very quickly (which has always been my experience w/Walmart-thank you!). Packaged very well. Due to my asthma & concerned about the fumes, my husband took it out of the packaging to air out & open up inside our SUV.
Wow! No smell & it was ready w/in 2 hrs. We carried it in, slipped it in the waiting mattress protector & slept on it the first night!
No lingering odor(s) that woke me up needing my inhaler, we both got the best night's sleep we had in years, since owing a waterbed.
We had a traditional pillowtop for about 10yrs, then went to the sleep by numbers, which was never comfortable for my husband & began shoulder issues for me if I slept on my side (my normal position).
We both have physically demanding jobs as well as a physically active lifestyle (running more than 15 miles per week, biking more than 50...) and are on the small to average body size, but we both have wide shoulders, which side sleeping can cause issues w/if there is not enough support.
This mattress is a wonder! We have had it for 3 weeks now; neither of us have woken up during the night trying to find a comfortable position & all of the prop pillows we were using to comphensate are now in the spare bedroom.
Just the ones for the head & between the knees for when we are on our sides! Thank you for such a great product!!

I bought this mattress after reading several reviews. I will say that first off I was a little skeptical because yes... it does come folded and deflated and practically vacuum packed into plastic, and then placed in a plastic bag, and then packed into a cardboard box. It took my husband and myself at least 5 minutes or more to just get it out of the packaging. We both did notice a smell to it, but after 3 nights it seemingly went away, after it had sorta inflated and expanded. I let the mattress air out and expand for 3 days and then put a mattress topper and sheets over it. I must say... WOW!! I love, and I mean absolutely love, sleeping on my bed now. I thought I would never say that given we were in a pinch and I was never really a big fan of memory foam type mattresses. But even if this mattress only lasts a year, I'd say it was well worth my $214. I hope this review helps some one thinking about purchasing it. Buy a mattress topper at walmart for $20-30 for all the nay sayers who thought it might be too hard. I did not have any problems what so ever with this mattress being too hard to sleep on. I could say that even with out the mattress topper I would still love it. We purchased a brand new spring coil mattress from... I think American Bed or something like that in Hoffman Estates and it only lasted two years before it started coming apart at the seams and eventually broke. I can say that I weigh about 170lbs., shamefully, and that this mattress has been able to support me just fine. My hubby is a bit bigger, 275+ and this mattress held us both. We have a platform bed from Ikea. MALM series. If any of that helps. Great mattress and would HIGHLY recommend!
Rated 4 out of 5 by cinder27 Great for the price
I can't complain about this bed for the price, it's a little stiffer then I thought but with a nice mattress pad it's fine. Once you lay down for a bit the heat from your body makes it softer [although I have not yet experienced this in the summer]. The bed comes shrink wrapped and arrives at about a 1/2" thickness. Plan to let it sit somewhere and air out while rising back to 8" as it does have a chemical smell for a bit. Otherwise I sleep well and have never had a sore shoulder when waking up. I would recommend this for anyone on a budget or someone who likes firm beds.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kitti1 my husband was reading the reviews and decided to purchase this matresses we got tired of purchasing new matress and not sleeping good I havent slept this good in years we looked at the temperedic but for the fraction of the cost we decided to try this one I highly recommend this matresses
Rated 5 out of 5 by tbay So Comfortable
I purchased this product mainly for it's price and didn't expect much from it. I have to say, it is the most comfortable mattress. Not too firm or soft but just right. I purchased a tempurpedic one for my daughter and it was more expensive and is way too firm. Would definitely recommend!
Rated 4 out of 5 by DiegoDave The Real Low Down on this Mattress
I bought the Cal King 8" along with the Premeir Platform Bed Frame (which is awesome). Overall, I got a new Cal King bed and frame for a little over 3 bills which is pretty nice. I read all the reviews of people talking about how great and soft the mattress is and I read the bad reviews of people speaking of how hard the mattress is. Here is the low down, yes the mattress smells and need to air out, yes it will rise to the size your ordered or very close to it. No it is NOT as soft as you might think it is, I put an extra 1" memory foam topper on it which helps. The mattress is new, so of course you probably need to break it in a little. With the 1" topper it is pretty nice. I would prefer it be a little softer and will probably get another 1-3" topper for it. Since it is new and firm, my fiancee and I had to buy new larger pillows to help support our neck and head. Your old favorite down filled pillows, not so good. Overall, my fiancee and I like the mattress. Is it what I expected with all the wonderful reviews? No. Is it as bad as all the terrible reviews? Absolutely not. I would say the mattress is a solid 3.5, a 4 or higher if you get another couple inches of pure memory foam for a topper. They real questions is this, how can you beat getting a cal king frame and matress for a little over $300 and then make it as nice as you want with a few additions around another $150? Nowhere that I looked and I have done my research. I certainly hope this helps.
Rated 1 out of 5 by LisaLisaT Thumbs Down on This Mattress!
I was looking for a memory foam mattress for a guest bed. I bought this one because the reviews were great and the price was right.
Ok, got it home and set it on the bed. This thing feels like like sleeping on concrete to me, I'm not even kidding. I have a soft mattress on my regular bed, and I wasn't expecting something plush and bouncy, but this is terrible disappointment, not what I was expecting at all.
It feels hard as a brick when I lay on it. I'm trying to find some kind of topper to put on top of it so I don't have to return it. I don't even know how to return it because there is no way I could even get it back in the bag to take it back to the store.
I wish I hadn't bought it. It will be interesting to see if my review goes through since it's not exactly favorable.
Rated 2 out of 5 by maggie2007 not the best
comfortable mattress, but the downside is, if you're slightly overweight the part of the mattress you sleep on doesn't fully return to its normal shape. there is about a 3 inch dip on one side from my husband, which after only about 4-5 months of sleeping on it, has become very uuncomfortable for him. i would only recommend this mattress if you are on the lighter side!
Rated 1 out of 5 by GurusReview Too soft gives back ache.
Going by the great reviews for this product online, I placed an order and got a lesson of a lifetime, never buy your mattress without actually feeling it once. This mattress was way too soft for me. Its not hard at all as few claimed in the reviews. It gave me backaches every morning, I was sad of my decision. I'm working on returning this product. I would suggest all to first read the negative reviews and then read the positive ones.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ProudNana08 Very misleading!!!
I was very disappointed in this mattress! I thought it was going to be sinkable, molding to your body. NOT!!! It was worse than sleeping on a hardwood floor, I tried for a good month to get used to it, but to no avail, I had to throw almost $400 out the window, I couldn't even give it away. Please do not buy this product unless you like a firm mattress, and I mean firm!!!
Very mad in Pa.

I bought this mattress and had it shipped to the store. I got there, picked it up and was at first shocked by the box it came in. I had arranged for someone with a bigger vehicle, not knowing it would fit in my car's back seat because of the way it was packaged!! I got it home, put it up and WOW! You need to lay it out for a couple hours to let it expand since they had vacuum packed it, but other than that I just put the sheets on it and slept on it that night. This thing is extremely comfortable! I suffer from back & neck pain, and let me tell you, I don't anymore! This is the best purchase ever, especially for the price. I did also buy memory foam pillows, and I think that's a huge help as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Where2Begin Hard to beat this mattress...
I bought it and got the box; hard to believe a Cali King mattress fit in it but it was there. Let it sit for a day or so... kinda felt like it took 2 to actually expand though. After, it was great. Comfortable and great price!
Rated 5 out of 5 by groverfran GREAT VALUE!
Why spend thousands for a mattress when you can get the same quality and comfort for a fraction of the cost. Also save on shipping by having it shipped to the store. A queen size can fit in most cars. After the mattress is unwrapped it's amazing to watch it puff up. The slight odor soon goes away. I've bought three so far.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Troubleatmill Not as described
The memory foam portion of the mattress is only the top 2 inches; the rest is regular foam.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Melanie18 Hard as a rock!
I really contemplated about purchasing this mattress for some time - read lots of reviews and bought it afterall. My hubby & I have been sleeping on waterbeds for about 30 years, regular and softside. We tested lots of memory foam mattresses in stores also before this purchase and thought we were ready for the switch. It was delivered to our house around noon, opened it and let it form into shape. Decided we could live with the smell and were anxious to try it out so we moved it onto our foundaton the next day. The horror story began the first morning following sleeping on the mattress. Oh, did I say sleep? Hardly, we tossed all night long. I was so exhausted and couldn't bear the thought of sleeping on it again so I took some time off from work and we went out and bought another mattress. I hate to say we spent $1600 on a Simmons Beautyrest mattress (just the mattress, no foundation), but we are finally sleeping like babies now.
For anyone who is used to sleeping on a waterbed or soft mattress, please consider staying away from this memory foam.
The only good ending to this story is that we were able to return it to the local WalMart store. It was extremely hard trying to roll a king memory foam mattress to return, but we did it and they had to come out with a large flat cart to take it into the store.
Rated 1 out of 5 by onehotshoppinmom Very disappointed
I was well pleased when we opened the package and the mattress sprang quickly into its shape, and the odor did not linger long. I was dissapointed that it was firmer than I had expected, but after sleeping on it for a month, that has change4d. The areas where we sleep are rapidly breaking down and becoming too soft, while the areas where we do not sleep are still firm. For the price, this is not a good quality mattress and I would not reccomend it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by matcrusher Should have a weight limit.
I would recomend this mattress to any one under 120 pounds. I say this as my wife fits this range, I myself am in the 250 range. This matress is very comfortable, and was for a couple of months, then my side started to get softer and softer, my wife had no complaints. I had laid on my wifes side of the bed and it was very firm like when it was new. At the 90 day return mark, my side of the bed had no more support, my wife's side was fine. I returned the mattress. My wife & I thought the mattress was very firm and comfortable. If you are a bigger person you will probably crush the memory out of the memory foam.

When you need a mattress on a tight budget then this is highly recommended. I have mixed feelings about the mattress, though. While it's so much cheaper than a traditional mattress, it's not the most comfortable. At first we loved it. We thought it was so comfortable. After a little while it seemed too firm for us. It's hard to describe it as "soft" or "firm" because it's sort of like both. But after sleeping on it for a while and we wake up kind of stiff feeling then I want to call it too firm. It conforms to your body nicely. Also it doesn't bounce around if the other person is moving. And it looks nice and sleek on our platform bed. In the almost 3 years we've had it it has not lost any of it's shape or had any dips. It also comes with a mattress cover that you can remove and wash. I think I'm going to look for a plush pillow top mattress topper in hopes that it will make it even better.
Rated 3 out of 5 by BAM2012 Received a 6" Spa Sensations Mattress
We were very excited to receive our new mattress and had to wait an extra 3 days for WalMart to Ship it from Bentonville, AR (3.5 hours driving time) to our WalMart Store. Once the order arrived I picked it up and let it air out for over 8 days as recommended by the manufacturer. Still our 8" inch mattress only measured 6" inches.
We ordered a King Size so after discussing the outcome we decided were would just keep the mattress rather than lugging it back to the store. As near as we can tell the mattress was mismarked so buyer be where..you don't always get what you pay for. Lessoned learned.
Rated 1 out of 5 by aabb22 Didn't rise
I was very excited to try this out based on all the good reviews. Mine din't rise. After three days the memory foam layer on top rose in only a few spots. The matress was useless this way. I took it back (Walmart return policy saved me). I am going to give it one more chance and have ordered another one. If the next one doesn't work out I'm really going to wonder about all the wonderful ratings on this matress. Did I just get a lemon??? We'll see...
Rated 2 out of 5 by GARATH I couldn't seep well on it ... :(
I was highly impressed by all the reviews for this mattress , that was one of the major reason I purchased it.
Unfortunately, It was not made for me. I feel it was too soft for me , I couldn't get any sleep on this mattress. I eventually started sleeping on the floor while my wife slept on it. Though, the thing to note is she was able to sleep okay on it. Let me clarify, I don't have any back problems, neither does she !
So I would suggest, take your call before buying this.
Above all, I would like to thank Walmart for being so nice to me. They not only returned my money fully, they also offered to get it picked up from my place.
Walmart is great set of values !
Rated 1 out of 5 by babiespenny BAD! BAD! BAD!
I bought this because of the good reviews. I wanted something for our lake house. I've never bought a mattress on line. I guess that was my big mistake. Thought I would save some money. Wrong. It was way too soft and sank in too much. So I ordered a 4 inch topper. Thought it would make it a little firmer. It did. But not enough. It's been a year and it is still just as uncomfortable. Now I guess I'll just have to throw this one out and go to a mattress store like I should have in the first place.
