Brentwood Home is a California based company that has been making products for the home for more than three decades. In that time, they have developed a reputation as one of the most trusted suppliers of home good products – including mattresses. They are committed to providing consumers with products that are good for them and good for the environment. In fact, a large portion of the development process for their products is dedicated to researching and finding materials that adhere to the Gold State standards for environmental responsibility.
All of their products are handcrafted in their Los Angeles facility and are shipped out directly to the consumer. Their Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is one of their latest innovations. Comprised of five layers of high-quality foam, which come together to create a mattress that is a total of 14 inches thick, the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is fast becoming one of the most popular mattresses on the market.
Thoughtfully designed, this mattress aims to provide the majority of sleepers with a supportive, comfortable and cool sleeping surface. Since this mattress is shipped directly from the manufacturer, however, you can’t try it out before you buy it, which means that determining if it will meet your needs can be a difficult task. To help those who are interested in Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress figure out if it is the best choice, we have tested it out and extensively examined it. In this review, we share what we learned about the Coronado mattress.

The Resort Sleep Elite Gel Memory Foam mattress is also similar to the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress by Brentwood Home. Both are made of high quality foam materials and include a layer of memory foam that has been infused with gel; however, the Resort Sleep Elite mattress is only 10 inches thick, while the Coronado mattress is 14 inches thick.
Below is our final score of the Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam Mattress based on multiple criteria that we use when testing all of our mattresses.
What’s It Made From…
The Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is made of five layers of high-quality foam materials, which combine to create a mattress that is a total of 14 inches thick – one of the thickest mattresses that we have reviewed.
The Top Layer
On the top of the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is a 3-inch layer of gel infused memory foam. This material is extremely responsive, adapting to the unique contours of your body, which helps to prevent placing a strain on key points that often develop pain while sleeping. The infusion of gel in this layer draws heat away from the top of the mattress, keeping the surface cool and comfortable throughout the night.
The Second Layer
Next, there is a 2-inch layer of ventilated poly foam. This layer supports the body and provides air flow for the mattress. This helps the mattress breathe and allows the heat that is absorbed by the gel infused memory foam to filter out of the mattress.
The Third Layer
The third layer of the Coronado mattress is comprised of 1 inch of poly foam, which serves as transitional support foam. It helps to ease the top two comfort layers into the base of the mattress, creating a consistent feel.
The Bottom Layer
On the bottom of the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is a 6-inch layer of high-density support foam. This layer acts as the foundation of the mattress, as it helps the upper layers keep their shape. Additionally, the high-density support foam provides deep compression support.
Encompassing all of the layers of the Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is a quilted cover that is made of quilted foam, as well as a blend of wool and polyester. Though this isn’t technically a layer of the mattress, we include it as one because of its thickness. The top of the cover is made of quilted foam and the side panels are made of blended wool and polyester. There is also a total of four handles, which are built into the sides. These handles help to make it a lot easier to move the mattress.
Hands on Review
As we have already mentioned, the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress by Brentwood Home is shipped directly to the consumer from the manufacturer’s facilities. This lowers the cost of the mattress and allows you to avoid the high pressure tactics that many salespeople use. While these are certainly desirable advantages, there is a downside: You can’t try the mattress out before you buy it. As such, it can be difficult to determine if it is the right choice for your needs.
In order to help you gain a better understanding of the Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress, we have assessed the key elements that impact the overall quality and the comfort that it provides, and we share our findings in this Hands On Review. The elements that we assessed include:
On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest, we give the Coronado mattress a score of five. In other words, it is a neutral mattress that is designed to meet the needs of most sleepers.
The Coronado mattress is designed to be very comfortable, and we have to say that it truly is. The top layer of memory foam quickly contours to the body, creating a hugging feeling that is remarkably comfortable. Additionally, the quilted cover that is made of soft foam gives the mattress a plush feeling when you first lie on it, adding to the comfort that the mattress provides.
Motion transfer is something that can greatly impact the comfort of a mattress, as it disturbs your sleep when another person moves. The Coronado mattress from Brentwood Home does a wonderful job at reducing motion transfer, which is ideal if you are sharing the mattress with someone.
Pain Relief and Support
The Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress is extremely supportive. The gel infused memory foam contours to the body, preventing strain and relieving pressure buildup. The mattress also helps to keep the spine properly aligned and offers deep compression support, which aids in the support that it provides and further prevents the buildup of pain.
Foam mattresses are notorious for becoming hot. The foam absorbs body heat and traps it inside, which makes the surface of the mattress heat up. Brentwood Home addressed this issue with their Coronado mattress by infusing the memory foam with cooling gel and providing a layer of ventilated poly foam, which is highly breathable. We did not experience any heat buildup while sleeping on this mattress.
Off gassing refers to the odor of a new mattress. This is another issue that often occurs with foam mattresses, as the chemicals that are used to create the foam often have a noticeable odor. With the Brentwood Home Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress, we did not experience any odor at all. We were able to set it up and start using it right away.
One area that this mattress falls a little short in the bounce. The foam layers do an excellent job of isolating motion, which is great, as it prevents you from feeling the motion created when someone else moves; however, this does limit the amount of bounce that the mattress provides, which isn’t ideal for amorous activities. You should expect to have to put in a little extra effort when it comes to enjoying intimacy on this mattress.
Sleep Position Ratings
We also tested the Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress from Brentwood Home for the comfort and support it delivers for different sleep positions. Here’s what we found…
Back sleepers will find this mattress supportive and comfortable. Weight is evenly distributed throughout the mattress and it provides excellent pressure point relief and deep compression support, which means that you should not experience any pain while sleeping on your back.
Back Sleeping score: 9/10
Stomach sleepers should also enjoy this mattress. It keeps the spine in proper alignment and provides pressure point relief, so you should not experience any pain in your lower back, which is an issue that stomach sleepers often experience.
Stomach Sleeping score: 8.75/10
Side sleepers, too, should find this mattress comfortable and supportive. It holds the spine in proper alignment and it prevents the buildup of pressure, which often leads to pain in the neck and along the side.
Side Sleeping score: 8.75/10
Bed Frame Compatibility
Brentwood Home has designed their Coronado Gel Memory Foam mattress so that it can be used with all bed frames, including platform beds, adjustable bases, slatted frames, box springs and even the floor. This makes the mattress very versatile, as you can use it with a bed frame that you already own. However, while it certainly can be used on any type of bed frame, to experience maximum comfort and support, we urge you to place this mattress on a slatted bed frame with slats that are no more than 3 inches apart.
