  • It was great at first, but be extra cautious

    Our loved one has been very happy with the activities this community has offered. Unfortunately the management and communication has been very difficult and sometimes iffy. Having people not communication back with us has been a complete nightmare. There was way to much fine print in the beginning when our loved one was signing her lease, there were plenty of things on there that was never made clear. They had made changes in her rent that were not to our knowledge. She had not been there for even a year yet and they were raising her rent price. They thought it would be a good idea to increase the rent when COVID started, which made our loved one very nervous since she still had to buy groceries and everything else. We had to reach out to the financial department at one point and they were very open with us about the charges, but things still didn't add up. When we asked them to clarify or give us an explanation to the raised charges they were not able to. The cleanliness was unfortunate, we were very uncomfortable because there was a bug problem and during COVID they would not allow any companies to come in and fix the problem, and some of the staff members did not wear masks when they were supposed to.

  • My review Imperial Plaza

    I would want families to know that Imperial Plaza that you should see the apartment that your loved one would be moving into first. The one my sister is in had been vacant for a long time and there were a lot of things wrong with it. They didn't know because no one was in it for years. I would recommend this community depending on the person.

  • Poor communication

    We could never get a hold of anyone within the administrative staff, we would call several times, and never receive a response or a call back, it was incredibly frustrating. The communication was lacking. Some of the staff was very good, but the majority of them just kind of sat around all the time and wouldn't engage with the residents. The food at this community was pretty bland, but portions were fine. This community felt pretty barren, the cleaning services were lacking. The community bathrooms smelled overwhelming of urine and feces. Our loved was in a joint room, he had one bedroom and another resident had the other bedroom and ever there bathroom would smell of urine, it was rarely cleaned.
