Cherry Laurel was very nice and very clean. The staff was nice and friendly. The dining room was very nice, and they actually had a chef who prepared all the meals for the residents.

The amenities of Cherry Laurel are in need of a total remodel. The people were nice, but the facility had just really been allowed to disintegrate.

My mother is currently in Cherry Laurel. I am certain that everybody has problems whenever they moved into an independent living situation, but it has been mostly very good. The cleanliness is very good, but the food sometimes leaves a little to be desired; some days they have great meals, and some days why bother. There is no problem with the cleanliness or the staff or the apartment.

I loved Cherry Laurel. It was wonderful. The person in charge of recruiting and all of the residents were all happy and chatty. It was so neat and clean, and they had some of the nicer rooms. They offered a lot, and the menu looked good. It was independent living, and if my parents needed help, they would have had to bring in their own person.

Cherry Laurel was very nice and in a very nice location. I ate lunch there, and it was good. I sat down with the director of marketing, and we toured the place. They had a lot of activities including during the meal, and they seemed to want to keep the people busy. The only problem I have with it is it’s not an assisted living home -- only independent. I am looking for independent that can transition to assisted living.

Cherry Laurel is a great place, but too pricey. The staff was very nice. They have a gym, but they don’t have a pool. They do have different activities like bingo,

My experience with Cherry Laurel was very well, and the rooms and the staff were very good. It’s is very clean, very well organized, and they keep the seniors busy with activities. The food was excellent. It’s not cheap, but my mom is very happy and well taken care of there.

We have visited Cherry Laurel. Everybody was quite courteous. They were a large community. I would say they probably had at least a hundred units. The rooms looked very clean, and they had different sizes. It was a good and clean community.

Have been looking at this place with my parents for a few years. We just visited this week and are very pleased....very clean, lots of amenities....Managers are very helpful and available at most times. Appears to be the best spot in town! Will write another review once they are in ;-) So looking forward to having parents in town!

I like Cheryl Laurel because it's more of an open and brighter place. If I can sell my home, I want to move there. From my visit there, I saw that it’s a cheerful place. The apartments were nice. From all the facilities I've visited, I like this facility the best.

Cherry Laurel is centrally located in Tallahassee on Mahan Drive. The facility is older but in good shape. Overall the building is well designed and used to have good food, good managers and staff that cared about the residents. There is only one elevator which at meal and activity times gets crowded. Cherry Laurel has had 8 different managers come and go in the last 9 months. It appears to be under different ownership that is emphasizing the bottom line;by raising rents through a "lock in" tactic, cutting back on food and activities and quickly cycling through managers to force people out. This place has fallen quickly and is not what it used to be two years ago. We will be looking to leave soon since there are better places in Tallahassee. It used be better.

Cherry Laurel is great; I really like it. I've been back several times since the first visit because periodically they have functions and have people come visit them again. The staff was very nice. They've been changing a lot though. When I go back the next time, the same people may not be there. Either shifts or perhaps they moved on and got another job. The rooms were very nice. I'm lusting after one. You have your own room whether it's a studio or apartment or a 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom. They have all kinds of little activities like for St. Patrick's Day. They had some dancers there who did the jig that they do in Ireland, in costume and things.

Cherry Laurel is a wonderful place for Seniors to retire. With all of the daily chores taken care of for my parents, all they hve to do each day is enjoy the activities, that are constanly offered throughout the day. With a month to month, all inclusive apartment fee, my parents don't have to feel locked in. They didn't even sell their house first. They tried it for a few months to make sure it weas right for them and now they could not imagine lining anywhere else. Thank you Jennifer at Cherry Laurel, for taking care of my parents!
