Even if your budget is limited, you can still find an affordable mattress that matches your needs to get the good night’s sleep you deserve. Among the best mattresses, the best cheap mattresses balance quality and value.

We consulted a medical doctor and tested 11 sub-$500 mattresses for comfort, motion isolation, edge support, and more to find the best cheap mattress. Our top pick is the Allswell Mattress; its motion isolation and edge support are great for couples, the firmness appeals to stomach and back sleepers, and cold sleepers will like how warm it stays. We recommend the Zinus Green Tea Cooling Gel Memory Foam Mattress if you want something softer. It’s similarly priced but caters better to side sleepers and couples.
