I visited this facility

Kamlu was a nice place and one of the closer ones to being affordable. The people treated us well, and it was a pleasant visit. The staff was very informative.

I thought Kamlu Retirement Inn would be perfect for my mother. You can have your own caregivers come in if you want and get services as you need them, so you can stay there for a long time without having to move. The location was fine and near the hospital in the neighborhood. The food was fine and in very small portions, but the elderly don't need much.

Kamlu is a nice place in a nice quite area and very clean. It is also priced reasonably, although a little higher than what I like. They have nice people, and their food is good. Everything was good, but it just didn’t have a place for me.

Kamlu Retirement was very friendly, but the gentleman showing us the facility was pushy. It was very basic but expensive. The common areas were adequate, and they take pets.

I had a tour at Kamlu Retirement in Vancouver. The place was nice and clean, and the food smelled good. I looked at a small studio room. What I liked best about the place was that everybody was friendly and really care. I just hope they are not that expensive.

Kamlu Retirement was very clean and the décor was nice. The people were friendly, and we liked that they have couples that live on-site. The food was good as well.

I found Kamlu through Caring.com. Kamlu had an opening when I wanted to move, that's why I'm here. Everything is just fine. The food is good. I've got a studio apartment, which is satisfactory for myself and my two small dogs. It is quite comfortable. They have bingo and games and they go different places and what-not, but I just haven't gotten into those yet. They have a large dining room and I get three meals a day. The food is quite satisfactory. The staff members are very kind people too.

We visited Kamlu Retirement Inn-Vancouver for our mother. It was an interesting place, but it was remote from my sister who's the person who would be the most intimately involved in keeping track of how our mother is doing, so we felt that it was not appropriate. The staff appeared to be competent, and the people with whom we spoke were helpful. Everything was clean. It seemed to be a good place, but as we say, the location was simply not appropriate.

My mother currently lives in Kamlu. It is fine. It is a nice place to live. However, I just want to get my mother in a facility where she can transition to assisted living, and Kamlu does not have that capability; that's why we're looking somewhere else. She likes Kamlu; there is nothing wrong with it other than the food. Food is pretty restricted. A lot of people complained about the food. However, everything else is fine. The rooms are OK. They have little kitchenette and what-have-you. They have different sizes for different places. The facility is older. My mother is OK there. She likes it. What they could improve on the selection of food and cleaning the floors. They have housekeeping provided in their rent, but they don't really clean the floors.

I absolutely loved Kamlu Retirement Inn. I liked them a lot, and the price was very accommodating. They had a walk in closet which I liked. They also had a studio. When I first walked in, I felt like I was at home. There was a big room. It was very clean, and all the people there were very accommodating. They had a beauty shop. They had games that they played. They had Saturday night movie nights. One of the things that I liked with them was that you could go all across United States to any of these facilities, and you could use it and stay at these places free for one week. You would have food and all other things They also had a little snack bar with healthy food in it, and you were allowed to tell the chef what you would like. There were different varieties of food. It was kind of like an all you can eat buffet. They had cafeteria style, and the food was excellent. The fellow that dealt with me and the whole staff showed a deep sincerity for helping people. I even had calls from them inviting me to dinner. They had included me like I was already a member because I told them I was very interested.

My mother was at Kamlu Retirement Inn. It wasn’t a facility for intensive care, but for independent living. Some people drove their own cars, and it was kind of like an apartment. They have people who come up to their rooms and clean them. The staff were very good at making sure everything was all right. With their activities, every day they have something going on. They have a bus that would take you shopping if you wanted to go.

At Kamlu Retirement Inn, the environment was very friendly, but I didn't particularly like the apartments because they seemed extremely small. The staff was very nice though, and regarding activities, they have anything you want there. What I like most about this facility is the price. It is very reasonable.

I stayed at Kamlu in Vancouver, WA for a little while. The place is great as well as the staff. Food is great there and they're very efficient in the kitchen. I always ask for an alternative to ham because it seems like they serve a lot of that in these facilities. One time we had salmon and that was great. They just need to improve on the billing.
