[quote](About the logging in thing… I don’t know HOW or what, but it wouldn’t recognize my log-in attempts…stayed blank and I couldn’t get anywhere. It was saying “GUEST” and prompting me to log in in order to post.
Then, I found the page still open in another window from when I FIRST posted and never logged out. This is how I was able to post. BUT…even though I ‘thought’ I was logged in, it was still prompting me to log in? LOL!!! I am confused…)[/quote]
Well I have to admit I’m just as confused as you are! Sometimes when you try to log in and another session is still active or in memory you will need to do it again but this is the only similar thing I have encountered. Let me know if it continues and if for some reason you can’t log in then you can email me at the contact link to tell me but it doesn’t seem to be affecting most of the members so it could also be something on your computer somehow.
In any case I did a little research closer to the Hesperia area to see what was available and here’s some of the possibilities I found after spending a few hours looking at and/or talking with a couple of dozen retailers or so that are between you and Rancho Cucamonga or San Bernardino (about a 40 mile radius).
NOTE: I have expanded the original list and it now includes the better options or possibilities I’m aware of within about 40 miles of San Berdardino which would include Hesperia, Riverside, and Rancho Cucamonga. There are also more options (with some overlap) in the list for the Greater Los Angeles area in post #2 here.
https://www.flexuscomfort.com/ Covina. Local factory direct manufacturer who makes a range of high quality mattresses, including latex component mattresses that have great value. They are very knowledgeable and service oriented and are what I call “mattress people”. I am happy to have them as a member of this site and recommend them.
http://www.berkeleyergo.com/ Ontario, CA. They manufacture a range of mattresses that use high quality materials including 100% natural Talalay latex, microcoils, and high quality pocket springs that can be customized before and after a purchase and are usually in a good “value” range. They are normally sold through a network of carefully selected and knowledgeable retailers in various parts of the country but the factory now has a showroom where customers with an appointment can test their entire lineup as well.
http://www.bannermattressonline.com/ Inland Empire, Chino Hills, Hemet, Corona, Riverside, Apple Valley, Murietta, Rancho Cucamonga, Redlands, San Berdardino, Temeculah, Cathedral City, La Quinta, Palm Desert, Victorville, CA. Factory direct manufacturer that makes their own but also carries major brands. They make a mattress with a couple of inches of latex over memory foam but no pure latex or latex hybrids. They also carry and promote major brands and it always seems very odd to me when a manufacturer does this and I would be cautious if you go here and make sure you stick to their own brands and make some careful value comparisons.
www.europeansleepshop.com/ Riverside, CA. They make their own line of latex mattresses and also have memory foam mattresses and mattresses that are made by other manufacturers including Natura and Orthogel. They don’t list the specifics of the mattresses they make on their site so I would make sure you can find out the specs of their mattresses so you can make some good value comparisons with other mattresses you may be considering.
http://mattressxpressonline.com/ Victorville, CA. These people are bizarre. I called to ask a few questions and they told me “they weren’t at liberty to tell me” when I asked what kind of mattresses they carried. Called back and they told me they had a customer and he would call me back. Of course he never did. They also didn’t answer when I called again several times. Very strange. I had to call their San Bernardino location to find out what they had which turns out to be Diamond and they do have a latex/innerspring hybrid.
http://dreamlandmattress.wordpress.com/ Retailer in Covina, CA. They carry Spinal Care Bedding mattresses (made in Gardena) along with Stress-O-Pedic, Spring Air, and Spring Comfort. I have talked with Bruce the owner here and he is knowledgeable and experienced with mattresses and mattress materials and understands the importance of providing the specs of his mattresses. Well worth a visit.
http://www.mattress-brothers.com/brands/ San Bernardino, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Redlands, CA. Carries Definitive Rest, Spinal care, Spring Comfort, Diamond (gel only), and others. Latex as well as gel with good selection and they seemed to be quite knowledgeable. They seemed promising.
Mattresses | Mathis Home Ontario, CA. Lady Americana including their Eco comfort line which have an Omalon (polyfoam) base and various foams on top including latex hybrids.
http://www.dannasmattressforless.com/ Rancho Cucamonga, CA. They normally carry Pure Latex Bliss which are all Talalay latex mattresses but they are switching to the new model lineup and it will be about two weeks till they get them.
www.comfortpedicmattress.com/locations/index.php Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas, CA. Makes a range of mattresses including latex but tends to focus on “telling stories” and not so much on sharing information about the materials he puts in the mattress. Also seems to be “on the high side” in terms of pricing so included for reference only.
http://costplusmattress.com/contact.html La Verne, CA. Paul is the owner here and he carries Pure latex bliss and his own line including latex hybrids and other styles which may have good quality and value. He is focused on educating his customers rather than just “selling” them. Well worth visiting for anyone that is close to him. You can read more about him in post #25 here. Clearly what I call “mattress people”.
Boys Comforter Sets Deals | High Quality Boys Comforter Sets | restezmattress.com Hemet, CA. Carries a range of independent manufacturers including Diamond, Stress-O-Pedic, Lady Americana, Southerland, and Custom Comfort which make latex or latex hybrid mattresses along with a range of other types of mattresses as well.
Some wholesale manufacturers that sell through retailers in the area that may also also be worth including in your research include …
http://maximmattress.com/ Local wholesale manufacturer in Commerce, CA. They are making some good quality mattresses including microcoils, latex, and memory foam and have a retailer locator on their site.
http://spinalcarebedding.net/ Local manufacturer based in Gardena, CA that also makes some good quality/value mattresses that includes latex, memory foam, and some very high quality pocket coils.

http://www.diamondmattress.com/ourmattresses.html Local Wholesale manufacturer in Rancho Dominguez who is making some very good quality and value mattresses. Has a store locator on the site so you can find out if they are available near you.
http://www.latexbliss.com/retailers Wholesale manufacturer that makes several lines of latex and latex hybrid mattresses that are available at many retail locations across the country. Also has a retail locator on their site to check for any retail locations that are near you.
www.anatomicglobal.com/ Wholesale manufacturer of some good quality memory foam mattresses owned by FXI/Foamex. Has a store locator on their site to find out if there are retailers near you. It is sometimes difficult to find out the specifics of the memory foam in their mattresses so make sure you find out the specs of any of their mattresses you are considering so you can make more meaningful comparisons.
At least there are a few choices a little closer to you that are better options than the majority of the mainstream stores around you.
