I visited Orchid Terrace, and it seemed like a good community. It was clean, the administration was nice, and it had a great potential.

My mom is in Orchid Terrace, and it's a wonderful place. However, she doesn't particularly care for the food and the hours of service. There's not enough staff members, but the dining area looks wonderful, and I don't have problems with the food. Mom just doesn't like the repetition of it. She goes to Bible study.

We were very pleased with Orchid Terrace. It was really nice and had a game room. They will take you on a shuttle bus to your doctor's appointments. The staff was courteous and doing their jobs the right way.

I'm very pleased with Orchid Terrace. The cost was a little steep, but I think it's worth it. The staff has been very nice. My aunt is 80% pleased with the food since there have been a couple of nights when she wasn't a big fan of the meals, but she loves the chef and she loves that they come out and talk to you. They have more activities than anybody could ever do, so it's awesome. The grounds are beautiful and the location is just perfect, right off the highway, and easy to get to. During evening mealtimes there's not a lot of staff, but during the day there are plenty of people.

Dad likes Orchid Terrace, so far. The people seem nice and friendly. He's not complaining about anything, but I have to check on getting some blinds because there's a lot of glare in his room.

Orchid Terrace was a nice community. It was a little bit close to the size of the facility we chose, but they didn't have a room available in her price and size range. I only met the person who was doing the tour. It was pretty similar to where my mother is at now because it's the same group, which is the Holiday retirement. The activities were viable and used well. They had morning exercises and a library. The dining room was nice, it just wasn't quite as open and it was in a lower area, so it was not as inviting and generous as expected, but it was clean and comfortable.

We like Orchid Terrace, but there are some things here that we are not happy with. Our room has two bedrooms and two baths, a full size refrigerator, and a sink. It has a living room/kitchenette, but there are no facilities for cooking. The staff is good. They are friendly and we get along well. They have a dining room that serves three meals a day, and you get to select off a menu. We have activities going on every day, but I do not participate in most of them because most of the residents here are female. The place is clean and well kept.

Orchid Terrace is a very friendly community. The food is great. Everybody seems to be very happy there, and my dad is included in that. We are very impressed with the whole facility. The staff is very friendly, very helpful, and very efficient. They seem to have more than adequate parking for all the residents. It is a very enjoyable environment. He has not been involved in any activities yet, but I am sure that eventually he will be. Their rooms are comfortable. For their size, they are fairly spacious. They are very clean and well-kept. Housekeeping is every Monday, and that's when his housekeeping takes care of his things. They come with a refrigerator, and the rest of the apartment has to be furnished.

My son has been in Orchid Terrace for a couple of months and everything's great. It's very nice, and the people are nice. It's outstanding, and they really do well. Everybody's been marvelous. We've eaten there two or three times, and food's been really good. The place is beautiful.

I liked Orchid Terrace. It was a nice place and I enjoyed my visit. The staff was very helpful, very responsive, and very nice. It's a 2-story building, they have nice apartments, the grounds are well-kept and they have flowers everywhere.

I like that I have a two-bedroom apartment at Orchid Terrace with an outside deck that's light and airy. We have card games, movies, and performers, like piano players. The staff is really nice and helpful. I was told that we would have transportation to the doctor’s office and outings on a bus, but I can’t get on it because they don’t have a lift for the wheelchair, so transportation is a problem. The food is good, and they serve three meals a day, snacks, and popcorn for the movies.

I enjoyed my visit at Orchid Terrace. I like what I saw. When the time comes that we have to move, I think we would give it a great consideration. I was very impressed with the place. It seemed to be very clean. The people that I met were very hospitable, and I'm sure those are the kind of people that we want to be around. I spoke to some of the guests who are living there, and they love the place very much. I looked at a 2-bedroom room which seemed to be just about the right size for what we need. The place was clean; there's no smell or odor. It was just lovely. I was impressed with the dining room too. But one thing that did not impress me is the looks of the bathrooms and the shower in the 2-bedroom. They looked used and not really appealing. I'm not impressed with the neatness or the cleanliness. Also the shower was very well used but not very well taken care of.

Orchid Terrace's rooms were about 575 square feet and the living room was actually bigger than the bedroom. Once you get a dresser, my mother's cedar chest, and their bed in there, it's going to be crowded in the bedroom, but it's doable. It had two huge walk-in closets, which I like so they have room for storage and stuff they would need. The apartment I looked at had a small balcony off it and it was nice. They didn't have anything on the first floor; everything they had was on the third floor. I didn't see any fire doors, and they didn't point fire doors out. They just had people assigned to move the people from the third floor down. I liked it but was leery about that.

I visited Orchid Terrace. Everything was nice and modern. They were doing a nice job and gave me the whole tour. I saw the rooms, what were available, and how much they cost. It was a few years older, but it was still nice. It looked like everybody was doing something there.

The gentleman was extremely helpful at Orchid Terrace. I ate there, and the food was very good. The staff was very sweet and answered all of my questions, but it was too far away. The price was comparable.
