The Camelot is a nice place, and my only complaint of it is that it didn't have cooler air. Air-conditioning was pretty hot. Everything else was nice, and the people were nice. They had some TV watching, lectures, and card games going on. The food was good, and the dining area was very nice and pretty full. It's open seating, so you can sit anywhere you want to, and the service was good.

Actually, I only went to the one I thought my mom would really like, and that’s The Camelot. Inside, the place is great, and it’s like a dream come true for my mom. It’s living like King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, so it’s awesome for anybody who has ever dreamt of that, which my mom has. It’s peaceful and quiet. They have a huge community, and it seemed really nice. It’s just that my mom refuses to accept that her sight is not coming back, and she refuses to go. The rooms were nice, big, and comfy, and they have different sizes -- studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedrooms. And for the pricing, considering all your food, utilities and rent, and everything else is included, they’re very reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly. I would like to live there myself.

My mother-in-law is living in The Camelot. The place is very clean and nicely laid out inside, though the inside is kind of weird. It’s like a castle and beautiful. It has lots of public areas and different areas for people to gather and talk or play games. The food is decent. It is not great, but it is good. The cleanliness is the most important part. It does not have that stink like some of these places have. She is happy there. Plus, they have an on-site nursing group that provides any additional care for folks that need assistance which is nice. It is an a la carte thing instead of a straight price, so you can choose which from them and that helps with the expenses.

The Camelot, more or less, takes care of their patients. What impresses me most is the way they feed everybody. The staff is nice. I will move there, if I can.

The inside of The Camelot looks like a castle with really pretty lights, a grand staircase in the middle, and a really nice dining room. They had one- and two-bedroom apartments and studios. They had housekeeping once a week, and they wash and change your bedding and towels. Three meals a day are included in the rent. Everybody is really friendly and do what they can to help you. They have lots of different things to do to entertain you, like sing-alongs, cards, different crafts, and beanbag baseball where you throw the beanbag to the ceiling and it goes back and forth from the different bases, and it’s a lot of fun. They have a mother and daughter tea on Sunday upstairs and ice cream socials at an ice cream bar there.

I visited The Camelot and was very satisfied with the cleanliness. The staff was very efficient and friendly. The room was small but very clean.

I really liked The Camelot, but the price was just too high. The food was perfect. The staff was nice. The rooms were very well kept up, and I saw that they had a calendar full of activities.

The Camelot was a very nice place with very friendly people. It had lots of activities. They had their own citrus orchard, so you could go and pick your oranges. The staff was very friendly and very clean-looking. We saw the one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, and they were quite spacious and very nice. It had a kitchenette, but then three meals were covered for a day, so you did not need a kitchen. They had enough entertainment, then they would take you to town, if you needed to go. If somebody lived in the Camelot, which belonged to the Holiday Complex all over the United States, they could go anywhere there is a Holiday Retirement Home, stay for a maximum of one-week visit, free of charge. That sounded interesting. Also, you did not have to pay any entry fee.

I thought The Camelot was very nice. They invited me back for lunch, which I have not done yet. I would like to live there. The rooms were pretty nice.

The Camelot was a bit smaller, but it looked quite good. I took a quick tour of it, and it was well appointed and clean. I met some of the staff people, and they seemed to be topnotch. I had one meal there, and the food was good. I was pleasantly surprised. They had lots of activities. They also had a nice orchard on the grounds, so there's quite a large place for people to just go walking or walk their dogs.

I visited The Camelot, and I had lunch there. It was all very nice. The food was excellent. The dining room was set up nicely, and it was fine. I wanted to live there because I had relatives that lived near there. The rooms were fine. The decor was not according to my taste if I were decorating, but it was OK. I would not have a bit of complaint. They seemed to have all the social recreations. There were a lot more than what I would participate in. However, they could add more outings or bus trips. I would be glad to live there if somebody would pay my bill.

I visited The Camelot. They only offer independent living, they don't have the other two levels of service. The staff's work attitude was very good. The food was good.

I visited Camelot. I really liked that, and I thought she would really like it too, but I don't know if she will go in there or not. I really liked Camelot, and the people were very nice. I thought it is a very nice place. It is probably the lowest in the whole area for what it is, but it is still a lot of money to put out once a month for my sister-in-law. I like just the way it was situated. I like the apartment living situation and the décor. It was just a nice place, and the people were very nice. I like the people that we talked to because they were very friendly and very nice.

I was treated very well during the visit. As matter of fact, they’ve called me quite often to see how things are going. The staff was friendly. They were informative and were very accommodating. They had a swimming pool, an exercise room, a common dining room area, and planned activities. The Camelot had a good atmosphere; it just wasn’t the type of thing for me, but it was clean and well lit. They seemed to be on top of everything.

I had found The Camelot, but I would not be moving until next year. I was familiar with the area. I was familiar with the people that live there. I used to live out that way, and there were a lot of my friends from church there. It was a very good community. I had very good facilities. I liked it very much. They had a full staff. They had exercise equipment. They had games. They had a big dining hall. They had two meals a day. They had housekeeping once a week where they change your bed, your linen, clean your bathroom and bedroom. They do excursions. They had a bus that would take you to the doctor or where you need to go within the radius of the city, and they take you to church on Sunday.

The environment was very friendly and very clean. It had a beautiful landscape. It had orchard in front, and it looked like a castle.

Everything at The Camelot is beautiful. It is like a luxury hotel. Everything looks spotless. With the whole environment itself, it looks like a castle. The set-up of the dining room is gorgeous. It is set up like a hotel dining room. I dined there when my stepmother moved in. They have a separate dining room for guests. We all had dinner the day we moved her in and they didn't charge for it. The food was very good.

My mother is at The Camelot. She seems to be very, very happy. She has made friends. They have lots of activities going on. She gets on their shuttle and goes to the store or goes to different facilities. She interacts with spelling bees and things like that. She likes it. Also the food is good. She was in a nursing facility, but when she came back, they have nurses on hand there to come check on her, take her blood pressure, give her showers and just check the medications and things like that. She is very happy with them too. They come in and they make beds if you need them to do things like that. However, The Camelot needs to update a little bit. They slowly have been doing some things and they did go in and refurbish it a little bit. However, they need new carpets and things like that just need to be freshened up.

The Camelot was nice. I'm on their list so that I would get invited to some of their activities, like ice cream social. I also had been to a couple of luncheons there and the food was generally pretty good. The staff seemed nice and approachable. Their rooms were nice and very expensive. I couldn't afford them. The dining room was very nice. I sat with a couple of residents there and they were nice.

They did have a lot of activities. They have exercises for their residents, a beauty salon, an orange grove where people can get free oranges. My husband and I went there when there was a doctor speaking and you could ask him questions. They have a little van that takes them places. One nice thing about them is their chain is all over the U.S. So if you would like to take a vacation, say in Florida, if they have an empty space there, you can stay there for free.

We moved my mother into The Camelot last week and we're happy with everything. The facility is well taken care of. We have no problem with the rooms there. My mom particularly likes the dining room. There are several factors that we like about this facility but we especially like the price. It is just right for us.
