Independent Living Reviews for The Chamberlin

I chose the Chamberlin because it's beautiful, on the water, and in a historic building. It suited me because the apartments are huge, they gave us one free meal, have all the utilities included, and they clean the place twice a month. They have a huge indoor pool for year-round use, they've got a huge exercise program, concierge services that take you places, and an active senior community there.

The Chamberlin is remarkable, beautiful, and historically fascinating. My parents live about two miles from there, so we have known The Chamberlin our whole lives when it was a hotel. It's very elegant and upscale, although the prices are reasonable. The apartments are beautiful. The activities are very interesting. They have historical lectures and tours. The grounds are gorgeous and include beautiful gardens and a view of Hampton Road, which for those of us who grew up in that area, is a wonderful thing. The people are dressed more nicely than my parents and are vital and engaged.

We went to The Chamberlin. I liked it more than the others we visited. It's a historic hotel that has been renovated, so the rooms were large and had lots of nice amenities space. We had been there for a Sunday brunch in the past, and the food was very good. We were escorted by one of the residents who spoke very highly of the place. She was enthusiastic and friendly. They seemed to have a good program, but I didn't observe any activities. They had a library, an exercise area, and a nice party room on the top floor overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.

I was extremely impressed with this facility. We were invited over to have Sunday brunch and the food and restaurant was outstanding. My wife and I were taken on a tour of the facility and we were impressed with the renovations and all of the scenic views. One of our favorite views was from the 9th Floor open patio that gave you a spectacular view of the Chesapeake Bay and the surrounding area. We had a wonderful time visiting and highly recommend it to others.

I’ve been to The Chamberlin to see someone for lunch, and I’ve also been there for lunch. It’s a beautiful place and a beautiful location. The facilities are beautiful. It has anything you want to have: indoor/outdoor swimming pool where you have the ocean right out there so you can go out and swim. You have a workout gym. The food is good.

The Chamberlin was nice. I visited it because of its location. The grounds were pretty. I saw one room, it was an occupied room, but we had permission to look in. It was a one-bedroom unit. The dining area looked nice. I liked the view. It looked out over the river. The staff we met seemed very nice.

The Chamberlin used to be a hotel, and it is gorgeous. It is a lovely community; indoor swimming and everything that you can think of, they have. I don't think they had a high entrance fee.

The Chamberlin is wonderful, it's just incredible. The facility is incredibly beautiful. It's right on the water, right on the ocean. The food is good, the people are very helpful, and it's reasonably priced. They also are just starting an assisted living program, which we are not involved with at the moment, but that's good to know. My mother-in-law has a three-room apartment, one bedroom and two bathrooms, with a galley, kitchen, living room and dining room combination. They have a lot of activities, which are really nice that residents can participate in, and they try to encourage new residents to participate in, which is good. The restaurant is excellent and open to the public. They have a package that provides transportation and a meal a day or how many meals you want to have. They have housekeeping once every other week. It's been really a very positive experience. The facility is incredibly beautiful.

The common area of the apartments in The Chamberlin were small including the living room and kitchen. The bedroom was okay and the kitchen area had a breakfast bar. Their bathrooms were not modern, they were standard and nothing extraordinary, no upgraded lighting fixtures. Even if it was an old facility, it was well-kept but not well-cared for and it had been painted too many times. They had an activity room which was small, the library had a lot of books but there was only one table. They also had a bistro where you could get coffee all day long with about six tables and it looked like an old-fashioned lunch counter. One thing was the traffic going there was awful.
