Ghostbed - Reviewed & Compared

About the Company

Founded in 2001 by Marc Werner (the same Werner family behind Werner Ladders, the #1 ladder company in the world), Ghostbed has spent the last 20 years developing the perfect foam mattress. They’ve reached what they feel is the perfect firmness (a 6.5 on a scale of 1-10) for both short term comfort, and long term support, and have a reputation for “cool” mattresses, leading Ghostbed to be called The Coolest Bed in the World™

Delivery, Setup, and Sleep Comfort

You will get your Ghostbed quickly (they generally ship in 24 hours, and you get it in 2-5 days). There are two options – free delivery where you unbox and setup (really simple, as these are “beds in a box” common to foam mattresses), or you can opt for White Glove delivery, setup, and removal of your old mattress for a nominal fee. The comfort level is fantastic – they aren’t kidding about the perfect level of firmness or the cooling. I’m a decent-sized guy (200+ lbs), and I felt like this had plenty of support, and yes, it really was cool.

Any Negatives

Like many others, they are foam. But that’s a plus in my book (especially because Ghostbed has solved the “foam is hot” issue).
