I visited this facility

I visited this community recently and really enjoyed the manager and Michael. They showed me around and I got to have lunch and I want to move here as soon as I sell my home. Seems like the nicest place to meet friends.

I had so much fun at their luau last month. I visited my friend who lives there and they invited me to stay for the party. Lots of food and people. I really enjoyed myself. Nice people and my friend just loves it there.

The tour of the facility was nice. The food at lunch was fair. All of the amenities sounded good. But I didn't know until I got home & read all of the hand-outs that were in the folder that all of these amenities had an extra cost. i.e. 2 meals a day is an extra $450.00 per month, covered parking- $25.00 per month. I feel that all of this info. should have been disclosed during the tour.

Montclair Estates is a very clean and well taken care of property. I liked the free brownies in the lobby. There was a party in the dining room and everyone looked like they were having lots of fun. I got to try out their piano too.

i took my mom there and she automatically knew this was the place for her just because of the fact they have a salon on site and have daily activities for everyone.

I am so impressed with this community and the friendliest staff I have met so far. I like the programs they offer and I love to play cards so I am looking forward to that when I move in. My son took me to visit the property and he gave the thumbs up for me to move to Montclair Estates and we looked at lots of places but none felt very close knit like Montclair.

I really liked the changes they are making at Montclair Estates. Seems like it is going to be something very nice and different from the other properties toured.

I visited Montclair Estates, and the rooms were really small, but the place was well kept. The dining room was really nice. They had good activities.

At Montclair Estates, it takes a long time for them to act on a problem. When my shower was broken, it took them a long time to fix it. The apartments are OK but not wheelchair friendly. It's hard for me to get in the shower because they don't have walk-in showers with shower chairs; they are tubs converted into showers. I can't get my wheelchair into the bedroom, so I use my walker to get around. The dining area, and the food are OK. The staff is OK and what you would expect, although some are more responsive than others.

I visited Montclair Estates. I didn’t like it. It seemed dark, dingy, and rundown. Their grounds were not good. You have to go outside to get your mail, and it is unclear as to which door is to the office. The rooms were OK and average. The dining area looked old, rundown, and dark.

My mom is now at Montclair Estates. They are doing a great job serving them meals and giving them really different food every day. Mom really enjoys that. She was super happy with the job that they did with regard to cleaning her place. She likes to do one or two activities every single week. The part of that we are not really happy is that it's an older building, so the bathroom was really dirty, there were some plumbing problems, and a cabinet was falling off the wall. The walls were painted, and the carpet was new, but I was not really happy with the rest. I don’t think they respond well to the requests of their residents. My mother has asked for her windows and bathroom to be fixed three times and nobody does it.

I visited this facility

One of friends from Church lived in Montclair, so I went and checked it out. It was very nice, and it had a lot of common areas/facilities that were really nice. However, it was on the expensive side, and I felt like the apartments were small for what they were asking for. They had activities. They had a calendar for each month on what they would do. They even invited me to come and join one of the few things to see if I would like it. They were very amenable. There was a group of ladies in the common area playing wheel of fortune, and my friend had told them that I was coming, so they were like, "Oh are you Jerry's friend?" I thought it would have been a very friendly place to be. It was homey, very friendly, and very pleasant.

I liked the community of Montclair Estates. The staff was very friendly. They had games, parties, and dinners, and it was like they go out to restaurants.

This facility is a sham. They put up a front about caring for your family and offer you all these things that are not the way they really are. Once your family is there and you don't check up on them on a regular basis their needs are not meet and the residents tend to talk about how they are treated. The residents complain of bad service there and they are so right for the money that they spend to live there.

While not a new facility the size of the apartments, the staff, the FOOD and the activities are wonderful! The covered walkways and the great weather...My mother has been a resident and thoroughly enjoyed it !
