Customer Reviews

Rooms are claustrophobic small and there's no possibility of cooking even a small meal in the room. They provide a small fridge inside the closet. Won't work for us but the facility has a lot to offer otherwise.

Care and comfort for dad

Very Good Respite Stay Experience

I had a nice respite stay here at this community. This is a lovely community, everything went very well. They have a great staff, they all were very friendly. The community looked great, they do a good job with the cleanliness. I will say that the meal program needs improving. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it.

Best place to live in Los Angeles

Staff extremely helpful. Food is good. What can be better than overlooking the Pacific Ocean. On a clear day one can see forever

They Do Everything Well

They have done everything well over at the Brookdale Santa Monica facility. They welcomed my loved one and made her feel comfortable and safe and they feed her well and she is happy there and flourishing.

Very nice looking place!

We visited this community (it was called Ocean House at the time of our visit) while looking into care options for a loved one. I thought this place was fantastic! The facility itself was clean and well decorated, and the staff I met all seemed friendly and professional. It seemed like they offered a great amount of services and care for the price. All that being said, it was just a little too big for the person I was looking into options for, she said it felt a little impersonal and more like a hotel.

My mother - making friends, well tended to, enjoys food!

My mother has been there over a month. The folks who run the place, or tend to the elderly living there, are upbeat and efficient. Once my mother made some friends, the caregivers have kindly placed them together at a table quite often. Some people are not as enthusiastic about the food as we are - we are not looking for Lucques... we are happy with tasty, fresh, healthy and simple foods - all of which are always available. They are very responsive to requests for small portions, a big hit with my mother. The views of the ocean, the birds, and the sailboats are very pleasing. The air and sunshine, so fresh and abundant in Santa Monica, add to the sense of well being.

Very nice place!

This place was very clean and the staff is excellent. They were friendly and I can tell that they really care about their residents. They provide a high level of care and offered a fair amount of activities. I would consider placing my mother here if need be.

It's a great place, with wonderful people.

It's a great place, with wonderful people. We weren't there long, maybe ten days total, but the experience we did have was good. We would have liked to have gotten him there sooner.
