I visited this facility

Waterford Estates is my second choice. The price is reasonable for rent, but they have a nonrefundable entrance fee. They have a beautiful building and a nice facility with a swimming pool. It’s beautifully maintained, very clean and neat, and they serve two meals a day. They have a great staff. They have lots of amenities, and they have a safe environment. They were honest to say that they increase rent every year. The residents seemed happy with the place.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback and for all of the positive compliments. Please note, we do serve 3 meals daily in all 3 of our dining room restaurants. Our non-refundable $500 deposit reserves a specific apartment and is based on availability. Should you elect to utilize our wait list (if we can't meet your needs quickly enough) the deposit is refundable. We do not have an entrance fee. I hope this helps and Merry Christmas!

I visited this facility

I liked Waterford Estates a lot. My friends didn’t like it because it wasn’t elite enough for them. I thought it was very homey and very clean. We had lunch there; the dining room wasn’t elegant, and I don’t think their meals were the greatest, but it was more in my price range. It’s in a great neighborhood; I felt comfortable there.
Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We are pleased to hear that you felt comfortable at Waterford Estates and enjoyed your visit! We believe that providing classic, clean and homelike "Midwest Comfort" is critically important to our continued success, rather than an overly elegant or stuffy atmosphere. Thank you for providing your feedback!
