My parents chose Marion Woods. It was friendly, warm, clean, and comfortable. They liked that it was familiar and that they had bingo and card games. They had friends that already went there. The food was excellent. They had a library, salon, movie room, activities area, and pool.

Marion Woods is a modern, up-to-date independent living facility area with all the staffing and amenities a person might require. It was a little bit more expensive than some of the others in the area because it's a fairly new and a fairly modern community. The director was well-mannered, polite, and well-informed. The activities were inside one of the main meeting areas or communal areas. There wasn't any major group organizational activity during that time. They were just playing cards. I saw the weight room, the card room, and the dining area. I went to three different types of rooms. I didn't actually sample or see any of the food, but I was shown where the dining facility was. I was told that normally they don't give tours there during dining hours and they don't normally have people that aren't members of the community to actually partake in the meals, but you can do that if you request it.

Marion Woods is fantastic. The staff and the people there are genuine and very nice. The food is excellent. They are renovating the whole place and making it more fantastic. It's a wonderful place to live. It's affordable, and the price is very fair for what's available. My mother is in a very nice 600 square foot apartment which is overlooking the pool area.

I like how clean Marion Woods was. It was beautiful; it was really a nice home. The staff member who assisted us was very informative and very knowledgeable. He was good. The people that I met were very nice and very thorough. They have a library and a pool table. They were playing Bingo and doing exercises in the big pool. They really have a lot of nice features. They also offer housekeeping. Their laundry machines are on every hall so you can do your laundry on your own or they can do it for you. The only trouble is that it is expensive.

My friend is now in Marion Woods. The appearance is nice, it's clean, and I like it. That's where she wanted to go, so that's where we put her. She said that they have activities and she is having fun, so that's a good thing. I had gone to the dining area with her when we were just checking the place out and I thought everything was really nice, but lately she has been telling me that there have been complaints about the food, either they're running out or it's just not up to par. It's very reasonably priced compared to everywhere else she has been.

Marion Woods was modern, had a pool, was very professionally run, and had top shelf organization. They had a variety of floor plans to pick from. The dining area was very nice, and the pool area was clean. I was impressed with the professionalism of the chef and the service staff. I saw various activities going on in the facility, and everybody was happy.

Marion Woods was very nice. We were impressed with the staff and how they treated and housed the patients. They seemed to be very caring. The food was very nice, it was plentiful, and there's many options to choose from -- they treated us like wonderful guests. They had an activity room, it was decorated with something to bring back people's memories, like an old wedding dress or a crib. That was very thoughtful. What stood out to me was the caring and intimacy. The community is small and you'd know that you're not just one of a few hundred people.
