I agree that this bed stinks
by: Leo C

I am trying to find sites where I can at least comment and post my reviews as well so I thank you for posting this review.

The Trump mattress from Serta IS TERRIBLE. Im not even sure if all of them are like this but after 3 weeks, my side (Im 6'3" athletic) started sagging badly and now there is a permanent "dent" from my body.

After 8 months, we turned the bed around and now that side sags. There is absolutely NO support with this bed and frankly, I believe all of my reoccurring back pains are related to this damn bed.

Trump's Serta bed gets 10 thumbs down. We just paid it off and it was $1400. Now we plan on getting another mattress because I just cant sleep well any more. I am currently dealing with a back pain that just wont go away....

Trump Matress from Serta
by: chelseabear

We have had the mid range mattress from this line for 5 months now and both have only good things to say about it. After trying the $3000 Sleep Number bed and feeling like we were camping all of the time and then going with the Tempurpedic and being so overheated we had to run the air conditioning in the winter, we were so happy to finally find a mattress that we like.

The pillow top makes the mattress soft and yet supportive. I have a rotater cuff injury on the side I like to sleep on and am actually able to do that fairly comfortably on this bed. I wake up rested, as does my husband. The mattress has held it's form quite well. My husband is pushing 250, so this is no small feat.

You can't put a glass of wine on it and jump around without spilling it, but seriously, who does that? I love this mattress.

Trump Serta mattress
by: Anonymous

Our mattress is awful. It sags on my husbands side and like some others have commented, it has a huge ridge in the middle. I do not recommend this mattress at all.

This is a terrible mattress
by: Leo C

Im not sure which mattress the other person recieved, but the Trump Mattress is as low quality of a mattress as one can buy. It does not support a damn thing. I weigh in @ 207. If a guy weighing 250 doesnt make this bed sag, then its not the same bed we are talking about.

I will allow anyone who gives such praises for this bed to come over and try out the same bed I have, that you claim to have....and I want you to tell me that the bed isnt what I say it is.

My back problems have only gotten worse and even though we want to, we cant go out and keep buying beds...plus with all the hoopla surrounding the marketing for those others beds, we simply arent sure. I will say this though, that the older Simmons Beautyrest we had previously, was a BETTER bed than this pile of junk that has the TRUMP stamp on it.

Not worth the money
by: Anonymous

Don't want to repeat what others have already said, but I STRONGLY agree. This mattress is worse than the 15 yr. old mattress I replaced. If only I could return it.

Seems like there is some confusion about this mattress. There are three different comfort levels; soft, medium, and firm.

Soft and Cozy
by: Anonymous

I was a little nervous to purchase this bed given how "soft" it is, but did after being reassured that it could be returned it if I hated it. I bought the one with the pillow top and I weigh 210 lbs. I love this bed. I just had lower back/spine surgery and it's so nice to have a good night's sleep without having the bed torture you. The best asset is that the pillow top cradles you while supporting, I don't have to roll around anymore. If you do not like that feeling then this bed is not for you. Also, I can see how some people may feel they get too hot, however, if you are someone like me who becomes very cold when they sleep then this bed may work for you.

My Donald Trump mattress is infested with something! It makes my head itch the minute I lay down and as soon as I get up it is gone!@!!!!
I have complained, but of course to deaf ear.I was informed used mattress are notsold----"that is illegal". Give me a break----If it puts 10 cents in someone pockets, it happens....

Sep 15, 2011
by: Leo C.

There is no confusion about this mattress. It is awful. Buying a mattress with a "Trump" name on it or any "celebs" name on it is a bad idea. There is a reason why they dont sell this mattress any longer (at the store we bought it from) and luckily the store has a 10 year warranty to where we got a nice discount off our new bed. Dont be fooled by this bed. Its terrible.

stuck in a hole
by: Anonymous

We bought a king size Trumpp luxury pillow top 6/6 mattress about a year ago and it's just horrible !! We paid nearly $1400.00 for it and it now has sagged on both my fiances' and my sides of the bed with a huge mound in between us! Trying to work with the store we bought it from to get it replaced...

Trump Piazza King Mattress is going back to the store with a fight!
by: Eastern Ontario

We have used this Trump Piazza mattress set for just over two months and I am preparing my battle plan to return it to the store! For the amount of money we paid for this Trump Piazza king-size, "Top-of-the-Line" mattress set, from a major home furnishing chain, I am absolutely not satisfied with its comfort and durability, it's going back with a fight.

After only 10 weeks of use the nearly 2" depression on each side leaves an unexpected ridge up the center. Sleeping in the depression without moving is okay but who sleeps still... rolling sideways leaves you lying against the ridge or on top of a ridge causing your body to roll back towards the depression. I can only imagine what shape this mattress will take after 6-months and beyond. I expected that after paying top dollar for his product that the old saying "You get what you pay for" should have been true, what a lie. Quality mattress should last years.

I was made to believe that memory foam recovers its shape almost instantly as you move over it... not on this mattress.

Just for the record, my wife and I are average size people in the 150-190 lb range so this is not caused by weight. Let the battle begin!

worst mattress ever
by: arkitchings

This is the worst mattress ever, I am looking in to that guarantee the saleman tolds, this mattress sags terrible, I ask the saleman when we were purchasing this mattress will it do for heavy set people he said yes and we can get a replacement if it does not suit us, well it dosen't I heard something crack like wood on the side and now I am in a sink hole.

So far so good...
by: Anonymous

My husband and i purchased this mattress about a week ago and let me tell you we have not slept so good in our entire lifes this bed is awesome. we both suffer from back pain and on our old mattress from matrress firm after 2 yrs it sagged we would stay up all night tossing and turning and wake up feeling tired and unrested with this new bed we wake up feeling rested and relaxed only time will tell if the mattress stays the way it is right now hoping for it ...

Worst mattress ever
by: Anonymous

We bought this mattress over a year ago and hated every night we have slept on it. It is the biggest piece of junk we have ever purchased and almost contemplating cutting off the pillow top to get rid of the memory foam!

only good at first
by: Patty N

I chose this top of the line mattress because I have back pain. I went from waterbed to airbed to this. Sales assured me that this bed had extra lumbar supports under the pillow top. I bought the firm version. 8 mos later my back is killing me every morning and there is actually a slumping area where I lay. Now I am on the other side of the bed. I will be looking for the receipt this morning. I spent $1800 thinking this would be the best bed ever- which it was--at FIRST. This is the first review I have ever written. I feel ripped off. Any thoughts about a good brand?

Complete waste of money
by: Findlay, Ohio

I too have had significant problems with the Trump mattress. I bought the pillow top version ($1,400), and it had plenty of support and comfort for about three months, then it began to sag. I weight 170 pounds. After six months the mattress was broken down to the point I would roll to the middle and my back pain increased to the point I began sleeping on the sofa. I contacted the store that sold it to me and they replaced the Trump pillow top with a Trump plush top at no cost. The same thing happened. Within six months, the sag was deep enough, that one could conclude that it had seen 25 years of use. I am now attempting to get a full refund.

Peterborough, Ontario
by: Mike

Had our Serta Trump Piazza King size pillow-top mattress for about a year now. I agree with every single negative comment on here. It was great for the first 3 or 4 months and then the sagging started. We are in the weight range mentioned above, 180lbs and under, there is no way we should be seeing the depressions we have. The ridge in the middle makes every day hump day as you try to roll over it. To make matters worse the depression is within the 1.5" tolerance, so no warranty coverage. We paid $2200 for this over-priced piece of over-hyped garbage and have to bear this out for the next 10 years to get our moneys worth. I only wish I had seen these negative comments prior to purchasing, but most of the comments have been written after I made my purchase, so hopefully adding my experience will help someone else not make the same mistakes.

Very Disappointed!!!!
by: Roberts

I don't want to repeat on the mattress just to confirm - Thumbs down - I have the Murray Hill / Donal Trump and it yes it sags! both sides they say it has to say more than 1 1/2" for them to take it back and its like 1 1/4". More aches and pains since I bought this mattress almost $2,000. Do not suggest any Trump mattress!

Nov 10, 2012
by: JR

We bought this mattress in August 2012 and it is suppose to be firm. Wrong!! It's sagging on each side and we are still wondering where the Cool Gel Is. It definitely is not cooling!! It seems like they delivered the wrong mattress because the one in the store was nice and firm. I never had back problems until we got this mattress!!

In a Foxhole!
by: Anonymous

The Trump mattress does sag. I am a heavy person. When my hubby tries to sleep with me, he is on a bubble. He can't sleep. It did not bother me when he was in the bed, but when he moved to the futon, I sank deep. I can't move. Thank goodness this is not our primary residence. Its a bummer when your hubby has to sleep on the couch! I guess we need to draw a plan of action.

Two years later, it's not so bad, but I still give it a super low rating
by: Anonymous

I initially posted about this mattress a couple of years ago, after a very serious knee problem, which I still attribute to the mattress.
When I went back to the store where I purchased the mattress (The Brick) and told them about the problems, they said that I was supposed to turn the mattress every 2 months. "Didn't you read the brochure?"

hmmmm...I swear I put that brochure somewhere, and turned the house upside down searching for it but it was nowhere to be found...until...I finally turned the mattress and there it was. The brochure, with the instructions, stuck to the top side of the mattress, pressed against the headboard, where it had been placed by the delivery folks several months earlier.

By this time it was too late to validate the warranty. However, I have enjoyed the mattress slightly more since I began turning it every two months. That seems to be the key. Recently I forgot to turn it for several months, and guess what! Did my knee problems rear their ugly face again? Yes, mildly - and I was reminded that it was time to turn. So I did, and the knee issues improved.

There is still a ridge down the centre of the mattress, but overall, I'm finding it very cuddly and comfy. If only I could find a mattress as comfy that was flat, without the ridge up the centre, without the shape of my lovely, curvy, big hips causing it to sag.

Another ridiculous fact about my visit to The Brick (it was a specialty mattress store in Edmonton, AB.) I told the people there that I felt the sales people lied to me about this mattress on many fronts. The response? "It's buyer beware!" They told me NOT to believe everything they tell you when you're trying to buy something.

I recommend this mattress for slim people, or for those who are well proportioned - perhaps whose upper bodies are equally weighted to the lower bodies, as opposed to folks like me with big hips and absolutely no fat above the waist.

We'll keep the mattress for a few more years since we've solved the problems, but I would not recommend anybody to buy it!

Serta Trump Mattress MOLD!
by: Anonymous

We have had this mattress for 2 years, and on top of the fact that it sags horribly, when we finally gave in to pull it off and put BACK our 12 year old sterns and foster we found there was MOLD growing on the underside! We used the box springs that came with it, live in a normal humidity environment and have never spilled anything on the mattress. Disgusting and ridiculous. Serta is telling us its our fault. For what? Having sweat glands? Not living in Arizona? Crap customer service for a crap mattress. What a waste of $1100.

run from Donald Trump Mattress
by: Anonymous

it offers no support, my arms and legs go to sleep, it leaves big
dips on both sides where you have laid, it burns you up, I wake up ringing wet with sweat. I just threw $1400.00 out the window.
It is a shame, I think Donald Trump would be very upset knowing this mattress is carrying his name and it is not good at all..

Trump Mattress horrible!!
by: Anonymous

Luckily we bought the warranty and were able to return it because it was the worst mattress ever!! It was like sleeping on a piece of wood!! Due to a delivery error, we did get to try the firm and plush and both were equally horrible. We were completely disappointed. When we took it back, they weren't even surprised, everyone was returning them. Spoke with someone today that absolutely hates hers too!!
Do yourself a favour and do not buy it!!

Numb Arms - Back Ache DO NOT BUY
by: Rose

I unfortunately purchased for $2599 or $2819 with tax, the TRUMP HOME Piazza Mega Euro Top Queen Mattress. It is not uniform, you sink in. My boyfriend and I roll to the middle and sink. We are both slender people. I wake up at least twice a night with my arms numb--this never happened before I got this mattress. My boyfriend has lower back pain in the morning. His 20-year old mattress is better. There is really something wrong with this mattress. The sheets don't even lay on it correctly. The salesperson told me that on this type of bed, my arms shouldn't be falling asleep. He suggested I buy a mattress pad. The good ones start at $200. I have to spend another $200 or more for a mattress pad now on a brand new almost $3000 mattress? What? I think Mr. Trump Trumped up his price on a very cheap mattress.

Disgruntled re Trump Bed
by: Brock MacLean

We bought the Trump pillowtop primarily for the free 51" Samsung TV at the Brick about 14 months ago. I love the TV, but wished I had not bothered with this huge thick mattress which has sagged after about 4 months, and offers none of the support it had when new. It is just junk with a high price tag and low quality with the Donald's name there to give the impression it it the same bed qualtiy used in good hotels..It is not the same contstruction quality at all..There is a reason the Brick does not sell this bed any longer. Looks but but crap...I am 5'10: and 210...my side of the bed is 2 inches lower than my small wifes!!!

has anyone gotten a refund
by: karen

we purcased the Serta Trump Gramercy model and have all the problems listed below. the measurement after only 9 months of use according to them was just below the 1 and 5/8th inch threshold. What about the big mound in the middle. Supposedly they will be returning to measure at the end of this month. There is clearly a problem here as I have never had this experience with a mattress before.

I've never hated a mattress so much
by: Anonymous

This mattress is my worst nightmare. It sags
Everywhere. One side is sunk/one side so
High up if you lay on it, you will feel like
You Are rolling down a hill; the other side feels
Like an air mattress you are slowly sinking into.
I can't wait to burn it. What a joke.

Trump mattress is crap
by: Anonymous

What a poorly constructed piece of garbage. It was good for about 12 months ( warantee time ) now has a dent or sag of about 4 inches or so. Bought at the Brick so no help there. My Sears mattress lasted over 15 years and was in better shape when we replaced it than the 16 month old Donald Trump Serta. The Donald really blew this one.

Dump Bed
by: Anonymous

We bought a 3000.00 trump bed at 50% off at the Brick and it was comfortable for about 3 weeks, until it started to sag on my side and my husbands with a mound in the middle like out old 15 year old bed. And it is toooooo hot, thought I was going back in to menopause again. I was glad to see online that it was not just me, we had thank god, bought the 120.00 mattress cover which gave us the ability to return it after 2 months and use the credit towards another mattress (different make) Wish us luck.

Trump mattress

Absolutely the worst mattress I ever purchased. It sags in the middle and the store I purchased it from in Michigan won't assist me, even though it has a 10 year warranty. My back and legs hurt.

Donald Trump King Size Mattress...
by: Anonymous

So glad I found this site! We purchased the Donald Trump king size mattress. We have encountered similar issues with the sagging and the unbelievable amount of heat the mattress absorbs and thus radiates, making a well rested sleep impossible.

My real issue however is the physical reaction we get from the mattress. We were not able to put our 'finger' on the array of issues we encountered with regards to 'cold' and 'allergic reaction' type symptoms. In an effort to pinpoint the problem, we removed everything from the bedroom and underwent allergy tests to try and address the issue. Finally it was discovered that the mattress was emitting a level of volatile organic components that caused us many issues.

After only a few minutes in the bed each night, our eyes began to water and the congestion developed. Sneezing, coughing and wheezing became expected each and every night. Once off the mattress, the symptoms take about an hour to subside. Returning to sleep on the mattress, the malaise ensues. Ever since the purchase, my wife and I have suffered headaches as well. We just purchased the mattress and it was extremely expensive, however we are at a point where we have to make a decision... despite the money spent, we will ultimately have no choice but to remove it.

I would not recommend this mattress to anyone. Be warned!

Trump mattress guaranteed to sag!
by: Anonymous

I thought i was nuts, when I was sagging in my new trump mattress, and had to grab my wife in order to pull me up over the middle hump after we both sagged into the bed.... but now i see everyone is getting the same problem with this mattress! we are both fit, athletic, so weight is not the issue. The mattress is brand new, and sags worse than my ten year old mattress in my basement. If we cant get warranty, we will have to bite the bullet, and get another mattress, cant take it. Oh well, there goes 1,699 of my hard earned money. bye bye serta.

Serta Trump Mattress
by: Anonymous

I love my mattress. It is the best I have ever had. I actually clock watch to see if it is time to go to bed. It doesn't overheat, even though I have lots of blanket on in the cold, my mattress stays evening heated. I am a restless sleeper so I am all over the bed. I have no permanent ridges in it. I have no idea what these people are talking about. I love it and would definitely buy another if I had to. I paid $1200.00 for mine and it was well worth it. Go Trump Go.

Lousy mattress,,lousy service
by: Ms, elaine

We bought our trump mattress from the brick in North bay ontario.
The first two months the mattress felt fine,,then we noticed it sagged just on the sides, making a mound in the middle.
We complained and the retailer gave us instructions on how to prove this so the warranty will be validated,,,,we had to take pictures of the mattress, underneath it,,,string across mattress and a measuring tape so they could visually see the sag,,,after countless pictures,,,we have not heard from the company , it's been months,,,,
Shame on you Donald trump,,,,your product fails and your representatives are ghosts because we never hear from them,,,no respect to your customers.
I'm sure you will never read this is as I'm sure it's too petty for your conglomerate deals,,,,,

Do not buy a mattress with the name trump,,,,br ware!!!!!

Best Gift I have Ever Received
by: Gp Shrldon

Browsing around trying to find places to leave reviews and saw this one. This Trump Serta Select is the closest thing to PERFECT that I've been gifted in a long, long time. Six (6) mattress/pilliwtop/name brand, worthless purchases for 25+ years. This is the epitome of comfort and luxury. No setting used to, no pain upon rising, no sinking sports, not too hard and not too soft. Perfect!!! Only paid about $500 plus tax at Sam's Club but worth $500,000. Just can't tell you how many years it's been since I have walked into my bedroom and been temped to get in it. THANK YOU SERTA!!!!! IT IS TRULY "THE PERFECT SLEEPER."

May 18, 2015
by: Anonymous

I've had this mattress for about 3 years. I have had to put three mattress toppers on it to make it somewhat comfortable.

It's sags on both sides where my partner and I sleep, there's a huge mound in the middle that points up and you can't sleep on. He and I wake up with awful back pains and the couches are more comfortable.

I will never buy a trump mattress again and will never suggest it on anyone else.

Jun 06, 2015
by: SB

I learned the painful and VERY expensive way that this mattress is to be AVOIDED!!! PLEASE learn from my mistake instead of wasting your money and risking your health!
It may feel reallllly comfy when you first get it, but over time it completely sinks in and easily gets dents all over the surface that don't go away - and trust me, turning the thing won't help. You need to avoid this mattress - which is expensive as hell - and spare yourself the back problems! PLEASE HEED THIS WARNING because after using this mattress for only about 1 and a half years I now have mild SCOLIOSIS. I'm only 29 and have NEVER had back problems! I believe this is directly related to having used this mattress! IT IS AWFUL. After only about 10 months of using it, I started waking up every morning with awful back and neck pain! It was totally killing me! This morning I got a brand new mattress and had them take away that awful overpriced torture device of a mattress. The Trump mattress, even though it's supposed to be firm is NOT "firm" at all. It's a squishy marshmallow of a bed that will ruin your quality of life! It's also way too high up, and it's not like I'm that short or anything(I'm 5'6"). It also has zero bounce so you feel like you really have to struggle to get up and out of bed, you just sink right in and if you think that sounds nice it really isn't after several months. It just feels like torture and you'll start sleeping on your couch. I even tried turning it upside down which you're not even supposed to do but I was so desperate! When I did that, it actually did help and I realized that this major pain in my thighs that happened to start after I got the mattress, started to fade away. But my neck and back were still killing me and the springs were totally digging into me. THAT was more comfortable though, because it was firmer. And all this within 1.5 years! Listen to me; STAY AWAY FROM THIS THING! Don't ruin your spine! It's wayyy too easy to mess up your back, please don't risk your back health with this thing!!!!!
