Review of Brookdale San Marcos

Living here at Brookdale has given me many things to be thankful for. Everyone that works here is very friendly and I can't believe they remember everyone's name! I am also thankful that during this pandemic I have felt very safe. Brookdale has been so good at following the rules and regulations to keep us healthy.

My review of Brookdale San Marcos

Our family was able to do an in person tour and the facility was very nice. Our overall experience was very good, the communication was straight forward and the property was kept very clean.

I Was Hopeful....Needs Some Improvement

The food is pretty horrible, I wish I wouldn't have moved my loved one here because of this. The service for the food isn't good. I've had better experiences else where, and wouldn't recommend this community to others. The community seems unorganized lacks professional approach.

Brookdale San Marcos concerns

The food is pretty average, and the activities were shut down due to the pandemic. In the beginning they will be your best friend you can get anyone on the phone at anytime while discussing Brookdale and moving in your loved one. However, once they move in and you sign the contract they bait and switch you. It takes much more of an effort to get a hold of someone, they do not respond in a meaningful manner.
