Also known as coil mattresses, innerspring mattress beds are build with a layer of steel spring coils that provide deep compression support and bounce that makes a bed comfy for sleep.
Compared to mattresses made from memory foam, coil mattresses can bounce back when you sit on them and that prevents sagging or sink spots. Although they do not contour to the curves of your body as well, modern coil mattresses are built with a thin layer of foam or are hybrids with thicker layer of memory foam to provide that soft surface support without compromising the firmness of your mattress.
For the best and long-lasting sleep for your spring mattress, you will need a boxspring base or foundation to support the coils. Here is what we found from the best coil spring mattresses:
- All mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified, and safe from harmful substances and material
- They have a 7” to 8” layer of individually encased coils for a strong, bouncy body support
- All mattresses have a comfort foam as a top layer, so you won’t feel the coils at all
- They make great choices for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers
So, without further ado, here are the top innerspring mattress reviews.
Reviews Of The Best Innerspring Mattresses
The Signature Sleep Contour Mattress is a double-sided 8″ spring coil mattress with two layers. The top and bottom surface of the mattress is a 0.5″ of high-density foam for comfort and support. This foam contours to the curves of your body for fewer pressure points and better sleep.

The mattress is made with CertiPUR certified foam and is available in multiple sizes. The Signature Sleep Contour Mattress comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
Most reviewers would agree that the mattress is super soft and of high quality. For such a low price classed spring mattress, it is firm and comfortable, as well as convenient to set up because of its light weight relative to other mattresses.
Few reviewers have, however, reported the mattress to be too firm for them. Spring mattress tends to be much more firm compared to foam mattresses. Otherwise, most reviewers love the firmness and enjoy this mattress much more than previous mattresses.

Reviewers of the mattress can agree that the mattress is a very good mattress. Although the mattress is reported to be unable to support a combined weight of 600+ pounds without sagging after a few months use, most reviewers report that it is comfy overall and the iCoils are springy and can take a lot before it comes close to flatten out.
The Continental Sleep Fifth Ave Collection Bed Set is a 21″ total height, soft euro top bed set. The coil mattress is 13″ and the base is 8″ of durable wood. It is built with over 300 foam-encased springs with high-density foam edge support so you can sleep and sit on the edge without sinking.

The mattress cover is quilted with foam and fiber, which makes the mattress durable. The product is made in the USA and comes with a 10-year warranty.
One drawback is the edge is not well supported, although reviewers have reported the edges are not an issue. Since the mattress is made of pocket coils, the sides and surface will spring back up very easily.

An Amazon Vine reviewer has left an amazingly detailed report on how well the mattress did for him. One of the biggest drawbacks is that the mattress can very heavy. (The king size weighs roughly 120 pounds.) However, the mattress is extremely comfortable, conforms well to his body, provided a good, quality rest.
One final note by the reviewer is to be careful when unpacking as the mattress springs open with a huge snap. Also, you cannot jump very high on this mattress because it absorbs force from motion so well.
The Best Price Mattress Pocket Foundation is a 8″ pocket coil spring mattress. You can purchase the mattress by itself or with one of four selections for a base.
There are four available bases you can get if you choose the set:

One drawback of the Brentwood Home Avalon Mattress is its weight. Most reviewers have mentioned the mattress is extremely heavy, which means you may require at least two people to carry when your mattress arrives at your doorsteps. However, most reviewers were mindful of the weight possibly coming from having more coils and other materials built in.
There are six sizes available for the mattress, from twin to California king. In the queen size, there are nearly 800 individually wrapped base coils for a full body support. There is minimal motion transfer which also means your partner and yourself will have minimal disturbance.
Our Final Thoughts
We hope you found this guide useful for helping you find and pick the best spring mattresses for your need. In this guide, we listed the seven top, best-rated coil spring mattresses.
One important tip to keep in mind when shopping for a coil mattress is that even though memory foam mattresses can be placed on the floor and slept on, it’s important to use a boxspring or foundation to place your chosen spring mattress on so that it lasts longer (and not void your mattress warranty).
Spring mattresses can take a beating. Most manufacturers and sellers have mattresses with hundreds of independently encased coils that help your mattress retain its shape. Thanks to these coils, the next time you hop onto your spring mattress to sleep, you will find a bouncy, firm surface for years of quality sleep.
