Assisted Living Reviews for The Ivy at Golden Gate

June 17, 2014

By Jean87604150

I visited this facility

It was wonderful. I thought it was really lovely. I would love for my mother to stay there. The person who took me on a tour was lovely and very accommodating. I was very impressed with the look of the place. I liked how beautiful it was. There were people in the lobby with someone, I thought from the rescue foundation, because there was a dog, and they were enjoying that. It just had a really good feel about it. There was a very good sized one-bedroom apartment, and it was very lovely. It was something I wouldn't expect an assisted living place to be that nice. It looked like they had a lot of good stuff going on.

I visited this facility

It was a great place but the apartments were a little bit smaller than what my mother was looking for. It has a great location, beautiful building and nice people. We had dinner and they have a live band and good food. They have a very good mix of people from all over and it's very "San Francisco".

I visited this facility

I visited and the place is very nice. The people are very friendly. I saw their workout room and that didn't impress me.
