In 2009, GoodMorning.com launched under the name Novosbed. While the Novosbed is still a popular option in the company’s mattress lineup, the GoodMorning.com has expanded to offer additional models. The company’s mattress line currently consists of seven models: the Juno, Douglas, Brunswick, Recore, Logan & Cove, Novosbed, and Apollo. GoodMorning.com also sells a pillow, a foundation, an adjustable bed, and a mattress protector.
Each of the mattress models varies in its construction, feel, and pricing. The Apollo Mattress stands out for its innovative hybrid construction that includes a layer of pocketed microcoils for enhanced contouring and breathability. This is the most expensive bed produced by GoodMorning.com, and it rates at a 5 (medium) on the 10-point firmness scale.
Potential customers should be aware that the Apollo is exclusively in Canada. If you’re a Candian mattress shopper, also read our guide to the best mattresses in Canada for more options.
This review will highlight the Apollo Mattress’s unique construction, detail its pricing and sizing, assess its performance, and summarize its customer reviews and company policies to help you decide if it’s the best bed for you.
The Apollo Mattress offers a medium feel that rates at a 5 on the 10-point firmness scale. This mid-range firmness can accommodate most sleepers regardless of their weight group and sleep position.
A high-grade cover encases the bed. Known as PolarMAX, this fabric wicks away moisture while feeling cool to the touch for extra temperature regulation.
Underneath the cover, two 2-inch layers of memory foam make up the comfort system. These layers work together to cradle the sleeper’s body and relieve pressure points. The top layer is infused with both gel and copper to transfer heat away from the sleeper’s body. Copper also adds antimicrobial properties to keep the sleep surface cleaner. The second layer of memory foam has an open cell structure for improved air circulation. A 3-inch foam encasement around the perimeter adds edge support.
The Apollo’s transition layer uses 1 inch of pocketed microcoils, which contour more deeply. Airflow through the coils helps heat to dissipate. The mattress core uses two layers of polyfoam that combine to total 7 inches. These provide support without transferring much if any motion.
The Apollo Mattress consists of five layers. Two layers of memory foam serve as the support system. A foam encasement wraps around the perimeter of the second memory foam layer for enhanced edge support. The transition layer uses pocketed microcoils. Two layers of polyfoam serve as the support core.

Thanks to its thick foam layers, the Apollo Mattress isolates more motion than the average hybrid model.
Two 2-inch memory foam comfort layers absorb most vibrations on the surface of the bed. Since compression occurs directly under the sleeper, you shouldn’t feel too much transfer when your partner rolls over or gets up. Since its base layer is composed of foam, rather than standard coils, the Apollo’s support core also helps isolate motion transfer. Additionally, the microcoil transition layer is fairly thin and each coil is pocketed, so it should not contribute notably to motion transfer.
The Apollo Mattress’s comfort system features two 2-inch layers of memory foam, leaving plenty of room for a sleeper’s curves to sink in. This material is known for its pressure-relieving hug, which may help reduce discomfort around the sleeper’s hips and shoulders. A microcoil transition layer adds deeper contouring while preventing the sleeper from coming into direct contact with the dense polyfoam core.
Many hybrid mattresses relieve pressure well, but the Apollo Mattress may perform better than some because of its relatively thick comfort system.
Hybrid models tend to be more breathable than all-foam mattresses thanks to their coil cores. The Apollo Mattress features a thick foam base and a thin layer of transitional microcoils, so it may not regulate temperatures to the same extent as some hybrid options. However, when compared to many all-foam models, the Apollo has better temperature control.
The construction and materials lend to this. A PolarMAX cooling cover transfers moisture away from the sleeper’s body while staying cool to the touch. Gel and copper infusions in the top layer of memory foam further regulate the temperature of the sleep surface, while the open cell memory foam second layer and microcoil transition layer allow air to circulate so that excess heat can escape.
Hybrid models typically have sturdier edges than their all-foam counterparts, and the Apollo Mattress follows this trend.
While most hybrid models get their edge support from their sturdy coil cores and/or additional reinforcement in this layer, the Apollo Mattress uses a different technique. A 3-inch foam encasement wraps around the second memory foam comfort layer for extra support. Because of its extensive use of foam and its reinforced edge, the Apollo might be an ideal option for sleepers who like the feel of all-foam models but not the associated edge sinkage. On the Apollo Mattress, sleepers should be able to sit or sleep along the perimeter without feeling like it’s collapsing beneath them.
While hybrid models typically earn moderate to strong scores for ease of movement because of their responsive coil cores, the Apollo’s unique construction does not give it this advantage.
The two comfort layers of memory foam combine to a total of 4 inches. Memory foam tends to restrict movement because it hugs closely to the body and does not regain its shape as quickly as most materials when the sleeper moves. This could create a “trapped in the bed” sensation for some sleepers. The microcoil transition layer gives the bed a slightly springier feel than some all-foam models, but the polyfoam base does not provide the same level of responsiveness as most coil support cores.
Most individuals will be able to change positions without significant trouble, but those with limited mobility could struggle.
To assess a bed’s suitability for sex, our team combines a range of factors. These include ease of movement, bounce, and edge support. When looked at through this lens, the Haven Premier’s performance is in line with many of its all-foam competitors.
Due to their tendency toward poor edge support and more restricted movement, all-foam mattresses tend to fare poorly here. The Haven Premier is slightly more suitable due to its more responsive comfort layer, which provides more bounce and slightly more traction than memory foam or less responsive polyfoam models. Though some couples may find the Premier does not meet their needs in this area, we expect that most customers will find its performance acceptable.
Off-gassing smells from new mattresses are the remnants of the manufacturing process, and they’re especially common with synthetic foam. When a mattress is compressed for shipment, the odors may not have time to air out in the factory; instead, they off-gas in your home. The Apollo uses synthetic foams and ships compressed, so it should smell like many similarly constructed bed-in-a-box models when you open the box.
Most experts think these odors aren’t harmful to most sleepers, but some might prefer to leave their new mattress in another well-ventilated room until the off-gassing process is complete. Since the Apollo is fairly breathable, most smells should dissipate within a couple of days.
Since the curvier parts of a side sleeper push harder on the mattress surface, pressure can build up in these areas. That’s why most side sleepers prefer contouring that distributes their weight more evenly to reduce sharp pressure points.
The Apollo Mattress excels in pressure relief for side sleepers. Its ample comfort system includes two 2-inch layers of memory foam that let the hips and shoulders sink in to take off some of the pressure. The pocketed microcoil transition layer adds to this effect with deeper contouring.
Most side sleepers should experience strong pressure relief on the Apollo Mattress. However, those who weigh under 230 pounds will likely feel most comfortable due to the bed’s medium feel and blend of contouring and support. Side sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds are also likely to sleep comfortably on the Apollo, but their hips and shoulders could sink in a bit more than ideal, making it harder to maintain optimal spinal alignment.
Back sleepers typically need a mattress that lets their hips sink in just a bit while preventing them from sagging. For many sleepers, the Apollo Mattress strikes this balance. Its memory foam comfort layers gently cradle the hips, while the two-layer polyfoam core gives even support.
Because of its medium feel, the Apollo may be best suited for back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. Their hips are unlikely to dip excessively, resulting in optimal alignment, but the surface should still feel fairly plush. Those who weigh between 130 and 230 should also enjoy good support and cushioning, but some individuals in this group may experience mild sagging near their hips. Back sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds might notice more significant drooping that could create added pressure.
Stomach sleeping often leads to more aches and pains than other positions because of the strain it places on the sleeper’s back. Most of us carry more weight around our midsections than other body parts, which can pull the center of the body too deeply into the mattress. Because of this, stomach sleepers usually need a more supportive mattress than those who use other sleep positions.
The Apollo’s medium feel should be appropriate for stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds. While its two memory foam comfort layers add some softness, they shouldn’t sink too much or put added strain on the lumbar region for stomach sleepers in this weight group.
Since these memory foam layers compress more when additional weight is applied, stomach sleepers who weigh more 130 pounds are likely to sink further around their bellies and hips. Therefore, they may be more prone to some of the back discomfort often associated with stomach sleeping.
|Under 130 lbs.||130-230 lbs.||Above 230 lbs.|
|Side Sleepers||Very Good||Very Good||Fair|
|Back Sleepers||Very Good||Good||Fair|
