The reason I was drawn to Essington Place was because they allow pets, but it did not smell like pets, which was really nice. I really liked the sales lady, she was really sweet and really nice, but also kind of pushy. She was kind of pressuring us to move in quicker. I was telling her how my dad doesn't really get up that early in the morning so he might miss breakfast and he likes to eat hardboiled eggs and bananas, so she raved about their little snack counter. It was right after lunchtime that we were there, but the snack counter was completely empty. You could tell that she was kind of trying to boast about the place, but it wasn't actually true. It's probably emptier than it normally would be, and that kind of disappointed me. Otherwise, it was very clean there, the room was bright, and nice-sized, and it was a studio. It was probably one of the smallest ones they have, but it was still pretty roomy, with lots of closet space, and there's a little fridge in there which I like. If I was to put my father somewhere, I will definitely choose this place.

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.
