I am a friend or relative of a resident

The Chamberlin is wonderful, it's just incredible. The facility is incredibly beautiful. It's right on the water, right on the ocean. The food is good, the people are very helpful, and it's reasonably priced. They also are just starting an assisted living program, which we are not involved with at the moment, but that's good to know. My mother-in-law has a three-room apartment, one bedroom and two bathrooms, with a galley, kitchen, living room and dining room combination. They have a lot of activities, which are really nice that residents can participate in, and they try to encourage new residents to participate in, which is good. The restaurant is excellent and open to the public. They have a package that provides transportation and a meal a day or how many meals you want to have. They have housekeeping once every other week. It's been really a very positive experience. The facility is incredibly beautiful.

I visited this facility

The common area of the apartments in The Chamberlin were small including the living room and kitchen. The bedroom was okay and the kitchen area had a breakfast bar. Their bathrooms were not modern, they were standard and nothing extraordinary, no upgraded lighting fixtures. Even if it was an old facility, it was well-kept but not well-cared for and it had been painted too many times. They had an activity room which was small, the library had a lot of books but there was only one table. They also had a bistro where you could get coffee all day long with about six tables and it looked like an old-fashioned lunch counter. One thing was the traffic going there was awful.

Come live at the Chamberlin by the sea. Unrivaled, breathtaking, waterfront views surround this magnificently restored hotel. The Historic Chamberlin was constructed in 1928 and is located on Ft. Monroe in Hampton. It is approx. 1.5 miles from I-64 and is very convenient to Historic Downtown Hampton, Langley AFB and Hampton University.

The Chamberlin sits directly on The Chesapeake Bay and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. This gorgeous hotel has been completely renovated into 133 beautiful apartment suites. There is no end to the ship traffic that comes and goes through the channel right outside our doors. They are so close you feel as though you can reach out and touch them.
