The Park Lane's building was nice. They were very nice people. All of the rooms were well-kept. It's a good place to go to if you have that necessity. They had a large dining area and they gave us a free, delicious lunch included in the walk-through. Everything was number one there. They had a lot of activities. It was a great place with anything and everything a person would want and need. The lady showing us around was very polite and knowledgeable about telling us about the place.

Provider Response

I visited The Park Lane and talked to the staff in the office and in the restaurant. They friendly and they're great. The location is convenient to grocery stores and shopping centers, and it has a beautiful view of the ocean. The rooms are very nice and large. There's a nice balcony in each room if you want to go outside, sit in the sun, and look at the ocean.

Provider Response

The Park Lane had a good reputation for a long time. The food is pretty good, the service has been excellent, the people are friendly, and they have walk-in showers. The area is very beautiful, and I really have no complaints at this time. They allow pets.

I visited this facility

I like that The Park Lane has chalets and that would be something that I would be interested in. They have nice apartments, but I don't want to be in the main building. The chalets have two bedrooms and they are spacious and wonderful, but they are separated from the main house, which means you have to walk over there if you go for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's not very far, but when it rains, that is to be considered. The staff was very courteous and nice. It's not near a street and I like their dining room the best. It's more spacious, open, and you look more into greenery and the garden. It just did not have a nursing facility.

Provider Response

Lisa, thank you for leaving this detailed review about your experience with our community. We appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again.

What places are nearby for independent living residents to enjoy?

With multiple group outings a month, the residents of the Park Lane are never at a loss for things to do.
