  • Nice Facility!!

    I thought this place was a really nice facility with a lot of great amenities for all of the residents. They did a good job keeping the community well maintained and very clean in all the rooms. They had a wide open floor plan that was easy to navigate through. It was just not the right location for my family and I in the end decision.
