My mattress, which was a normal home mattress, came with two thin cover layers on it, one of which was zippered for easy removal for cleaning. Before that, when we had a plain 4 inch foam mattress, we used a quilted mattress cover from Walmart to put a layer between the foam and the sheets, which also worked well. As for warmth, it was not at all too warm. I like to be warm when I sleep but have a somewhat cooler room, so this was great. We use flannel sheets on all our beds, even at home, all year round, which we like because they are soft and never get "clammy" in humid environments, besides being warm.
