    • Overall

    Essington Place was quite a nice place. They have transportation, and they serve 3 restaurant-style meals a day in the dining rooms. The staff people were nice; everybody was. The building was older and needed remodeling, but everything was clean. It was a nice community. There was a lot of new buildings and different things in the area. The hospital is not far away from there and also the mall and the grocery stores, doctor's offices, and a real estate office. They have everything in that neighborhood.
