Nolah Customer Satisfaction Rating Comparison

Nolah Mattress Sleep Ratings

CategoryCriteriaNolah RatingWhat Nolah Users Say
Customer SatisfactionBased on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Nolah mattress.73%The Nolah mattress has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 73%, which is on par with the average rating for all foam-based mattresses.
Durability Foam mattresses tend to be less durable than innerspring models, and the soft sleeping surface may be prone to indentations and sinkage at the edges. FairThe durability of Nolah mattresses appears to be at least fair, but the company has been in business for roughly three years and the long-term performance of these models has not been assessed.
Motion IsolationFoam mattresses usually isolate motion to a significant extent whenever someone gets up or shifts positions, resulting in fewer nighttime disruptions  for couples.GoodThe Nolah mattress isolates transfer to some extent, but not as much as models with memory foam layers that absorb and minimize motion more effectively.
Sex Some couples report that foam mattresses are less than ideal for sex, mostly due to the unresponsive sleep surface that can create feelings of ‘fighting’ against the mattress.FairThe Nolah mattress is not particularly bouncy, and may not be responsive enough for some couples.
ConformingFoam mattresses are designed to conform to sleeper’s bodies, which improves spinal alignment and relieves pressure points.GoodLike other mixed foam mattresses, the Nolah conforms somewhat closely but does not offer the same targeted pressure relief as memory foam mattresses.
Temperature NeutralityFoam mattresses tend to retain more body heat and ‘sleep hotter’ than innerspring or latex mattresses.FairThe Nolah mattress can be a heat trap, according to owners, which causes the bed to sleep warm.
Off-gassingSome mattresses produce unpleasant odors known as off-gassing when they are removed from their packaging, and these smells may linger for several days.FairNolah mattresses emit some odor when new, but no more than other mixed foam models; the smells typically clear out within a few days.
Edge SupportFoam mattresses generally have minimal edge support compared to innerspring models, and sinkage may occur where people tend to sit at the edges of the bed. PoorThe Nolah mattress offers little to no edge support, leaving the perimeter of the bed susceptible to early sinkage.
NoiseFoam beds are generally much quieter than innersprings and hybrids, due to their lack of potentially creaky metal components.ExcellentThe Nolah mattress is virtually silent when bearing weight, according to customers.
Ease of Moving and RotatingFoam beds tend to be lighter than innersprings, but they need to be regularly rotated in order to preserve the conforming sleep surface. GoodA Queen-size Nolah mattress weighs roughly 74 pounds, which is about average for a foam-based mattress.

Trial Period and Guarantee: Nolah Sleep offers a 120-night sleep trial for all mattresses.

  1. There is a mandatory 30-night break-in period. Customers will not be able to return their mattress for a full refund until at least 30 nights have elapsed.
  2. Nolah Sleep issues a full refund for all mattresses returned during the sleep trial after 30 nights. The company will also cover all pickup and transportation costs.
  3. Nolah requires 7 to 10 business days to coordinate the mattress pickup. The company will issue a refund to the customer within seven business days.
  4. Returned mattresses are donated to charity or delivered to recycling centers.

Warranty: Nolah Sleep offers a 15-year replacement warranty for all mattresses.

  1. Warranty coverage begins on the date of purchase; the warranty is entirely nonprorated. Nolah Sleep will, at their sole option, repair or replace all mattresses that are deemed defective for as long as the warranty is valid.
  2. Nolah mattresses are designed for use with certain types of foundational support. According to the company, mattresses must be supported with a ‘supportive and proper foundation/base which is substantial enough to support the mattress and its users‘. Use of an improper foundation will void the warranty.
  3. Nolah Sleep will cover all costs related to physically repairing or replacing a mattress, as well as all transportation and handling charges for shipping a defective mattress to the company. If the mattress is not covered under warranty, the owner must pay a maximum of $100 in shipping charges each way.
  4. The warranty will cover the following product defects:
    • Visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper and are not the result of owner misuse and/or improper foundational support.
    • Physical flaws in the foam that cause it to deteriorate or crack prematurely.
    • Manufacturing flaws related to the cover, including issues with seams or zippers. Nolah Sleep may opt to only replace the cover if there are no other issues with the mattress.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Normal increases in foam softness that do not affect its pressure-relieving abilities, or visible indentations or sagging in the mattress surface that do not measure one and a half inches (1 1/2″) or deeper. These issues are all considered standard wear and tear.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur as a direct result of owner misuse, improper cleaning, and/or inadequate foundational support.
  6. This warranty is exclusively extended to original owners who buy their mattress directly from Nolah Sleep or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer do so ‘as is’, and will not be entitled to warranty protection.
