    Peninsula was nice and neat. However, it was a little small, and the studio rooms were a little tight. They didn't think it was going to work for me, and they acted like they didn't know I was coming.

    Peninsula was beautiful and very nice. It’s colorful and has outdoor parking. It's mostly apartments, but we want to have a cottage or home. The staff is very nice. The facility looked just fine, but the apartments were too small for us. It is certainly nice, though. The community is just gorgeous. They had a meeting room and a place where people play cards and games.

    I moved my elderly parents into the Holiday Peninsula in Gig Harbor and at first the staff was very pleasant until after they got us to sign up. I walk in to see my parents and none of the front office gives you the time of day. After about 6 months my parents and other residents were complaining about the food. It was brought to managements attention but no changes were made. I started noticing the cleaning we paid for to clean my parents apartment was not that good. It looked like just a spot clean. After a year I moved my parents to another facilities. I went to turn in the keys and to get their last bit of mail and to my surprise they already had moved someone in (parents keys still fit the lock) and the new resident's name was on the door and the mailbox. I spoke with the front desk and they said there is nothing they could do. So my parents were paying for someone to move in on my parents dime. Now that I have moved my parents to a different facility that is so much better regarding staff, food and cleaning, I realized how bad things were at Peninsula. Also, Peninsula will approach new residents after about 6 months to pay an additional 1 months rent to avoid any rate increases. That is another money maker for the the Holiday company. I'm so glad my parents did not agree to it. It would of been money down the drain. I found out talking with other residents that they were not happy there as well. Also, some of the previous staff said it was the worse place to work. I feel that some elderly don't have a voice and just have to accept the way way things are. I'm so happy that my parents are now in a place where the staff genuinely care and it's not just a job to them but a family.
