Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Chambrel Williamsburg

I visited this facility

Brookdale was outstanding. My husband liked it there, but there was more availability right now at the community we chose. It is familiar to me because an acquaintance was there before. It’s slightly more expensive but not that large.

Brookdale Williamsburg is a quite nice home for Mom. It's like a condo complex that doesn't look like a retirement community. The food is acceptable, the staff is terrific, and the grounds are really nice. It's a park-like community located next to a forest. It has lots of activity areas, roaming around areas, and a pool outside.

Very new and well appointed. 32 residents. Way too big and noisy for what my wife needed. Lots of little things were not as portrayed. Not enough caregiver time spent on any one individual. Food was not really to her liking but we were adapting. Drive was too far from Hampton. Just the wrong place for her but we had to try it.

My mother is in an assisted living place called Chambrel at Williamsburg. She is at the same place where she was before. She has been there for four years, and she just moved to a different apartment where she is getting more help. She liked it there, and she is doing fine there. The food is fine. It's the same food that she had before. It's prepared for both the independent living people and the assisted living people. They have their own activities director, and they have a lot of activities there. It's been a wonderful experience. The staff is very easy to work with.

I visited Chambrel. The rooms were nice. They had everything that everybody needed. The staff was straightforward. They would tell you right off the bat. I asked them right away if they were affordable, and they were upfront with me. When I was there, some people were doing bingo, and some were doing craftwork or something of the sort. I just wished they had more affordable assisted living for people who couldn't afford them.

I really truly liked Chambrel. All of it was very nice and open. The people were very nice and pleasant. They were very responsive, if you needed something. They had many activities. At that time, they had a choir singing and hand bell choir. They had a library, computers, and card games. Their dining area was very comfortable.

We found Chambrel at Williamsburg for my husband's parents. This is a great facility. They are in a two-bedroom apartment. The food is good, and they have a good menu. The staff are very helpful.

Chambrel is beautiful. Their apartments are a whole lot bigger. It cost a fortune from my point of view. But they're nice. A couple of their apartments were as big as a house. And that would have been just fine. But we couldn't go beyond that. I wandered around but I never got to see the person that was in charge. He went somewhere and it took him 3 weeks to call me back, so I wasn't that much interested. The place was large and most of it was retirement living, and the assisted living was on top of that. It's so expensive. It was high-class. It was a mixture of retired people that wanted to live there and then if you had to have assisted living that was on top of that, that's why it got up to be $7,000 to $9,000 a month. By the time I got to there, I wasn't much interested because it's just too expensive.

Chambrel had really nice apartments. The food seemed very good. The staff I met seemed very nice but I heard some not so great things about them when I talked to people, but I don't know it firsthand. However, they made it sound that they had more than they had and My mom thought it was too fancy for her.

My wife was partially paralyzed from breast down. She stood up and went to sit down in her wheelchair and broke her left hip and right ankle. I was on the road and put her in the assisted living until she was well enough to come home. This facility allowed her to have our 2 dogs there. The staff was very helpful to get my wife in. She loved the place. She got the care she needed to get her legs to straighten out and the right foot that dropped. They had all kinds of recreation to pass the time and to make new friends. The food was very delicious. You got to order off a menu. You were close to many shopping malls, movie taverns, and sights to visit. They have transportation to take you to your doctor's and other places. I would reccomend this place to anyone who needs assisted living.

My friend is in Brookdale Williamsburg, and it’s very good. It was pleasant, very clean, very friendly, and very accommodating. I had two brief visits there.

Brookdale Williamsburg was very nice. In fact, we stayed overnight. We were going to get a hotel room, and they said, "No, stay here with us." So, we stayed in a one-bedroom apartment. We were shown all around, and it was very nice. The food was very good, too.

Chambrel was very similar to the place I am moving into. The only difference is you rent the facility there in Virginia and, of course, we buy it here in Iowa. The rooms were nice. I have eaten the food there, and their chefs went out of their way to take care of my diet requirements. I was able to speak with the managers, the assistant managers, the chefs, and the workers that keep the place clean and maintained.

Chambrel was very nice. It was quite lovely, but it was in Williamsburg, and our daughter is going to move to Newport News, and that is why we want to move there. They have all the activities that you can think of. They have exercises, movies, trips, concerts, lectures or anything you want practically.

My mother’s care is doing very well at Chambrel. There are all sorts of activities available but she hasn’t used any of them yet. She’s on oxygen so she goes up to the dining room and right now that’s the extent of what she’s doing. They post many activities they have planned for them and they have this all the time. They have transportation, physical therapy and all that stuff there; and she’s been to the salon so the salon is also a benefit. It’s an old place but clean. The staff is excellent. They’re so polite and they are so caring. I would recommend it. It’s got all things in house. The chef does an excellent job with the food. I’ve tasted the food and my mother seemed to be very pleased with the food. All the people there are just as nice and personable; and so I don’t think you could ask any much more than that.

I found Chambrel very nice. The girl who helped me was very personable and knowledgeable. I really like the facility, and it was actually one that was on my mom's short list if she moved down here. I looked at the independent living which was like apartments. They were very nice and very spacious. They had bingo, reading groups, movie nights and trips out shopping. I'd like to move there.

Chambrel at Williamsburg was the first one I toured at Williamsburg and this place is very nice. The place was very elegant. Everything was excellent although it was a little too far. The residents were very friendly and nice. It was like home. The people there interacted well with each other and they welcomed me and they said they hope I would come and stay with them. The amenities were good. Some students would come in periodically and would perform for the residents and I really like that one.
