Affordable A- Hampton & Rhodes prices are $100 to $950 with the average queen costing about $353 not including a foundation. More.
Durability / longevity D Similar to innerspring beds in general, at least 22% of owners report significant sagging or excessive softening occurring within three years of ownership. The pricer Hampton & Rhodes models appear to perform at least slightly better than the cheaper models on this issue.
Support C Support is fair for many models and below average for the least expensive models.
Minimizes pressure C+ Hampton & Rhodes mattresses with at least a 3-inch comfort layer contour and mold modestly to one's body, resulting in about average distributed support and pressure-point relief.
Less (back) pain C Lack of support and mattress sagging appears to cause at least some discomfort and back pain for about 18% of owners. (See mattresses and pain relief for general analysis.)
Easy to move on C+ Lack of support may cause some difficulty of moving on and getting up off of the mattresses, especially for heavier people.
Motion isolation C In regard to keeping movement made by one person from disturbing another person, the mattresses overall perform fair at best. Foam models and those models with LFK innersprings (see specs) appear to perform better than those with VertiCoil innersprings.
Edge support B- Support for sitting or sleeping near the mattress edge tends to be above average for spring models but fair at best for foam models.
No initial odor / off gassing C+ About 7% of Hampton & Rhodes mattress owners (1 in 14) report significant off gassing / initial odor.
No sleeping hot B- Those models with at least 1.5 inches of memory foam have higher potential to trap heat than those with less or no memory foam.
Good for sex B- Hampton & Rhodes mattresses tend to be bouncy but mattress sagging may cause romantic activity to be uncomfortable / difficult to perform. (See mattresses and sex for general analysis).
No noise D+ About 14% of Hampton & Rhodes owners (1 in 7) report the mattress making noise at least some of the time.
Heavy person friendly D Due to the fair-at-best support / coil count, the mattresses tend to not be especially well suited for people above 230 pounds.
Light person friendly C+ People under 130 pounds may not exert enough pressure on firmer models to result in adequate comfort.
No topper needed C- About 10% of Hampton & Rhodes mattress owners (1 in 10) need to add a topper to the mattress to improve comfort.
Short break in B Break-in time appears to be better than average, about 10 days for most owners.
Easy to maintain C The mattresses are no-flip. But head-to-foot rotation at least twice a year is often needed to maintain comfort and prevent / combat sagging.
Easy to lift, handle, move B- The average queen Hampton & Rhodes mattress appears to weigh about 70 pounds which is lighter than the average queen (95 pounds). The pricier, thicker models will weigh more than the cheaper, thinner models. Few models have grips for maneuvering.
Convenient try-out B Unlike many lower-priced mattresses, Hampton & Rhodes tends to have fairly wide availability in (Mattress Firm) stores – as opposed to being available only online. This allows shoppers to briefly try the mattress before buying.
