Customer Reviews

Helpful!

Everything is fine at Destinations. My mother needed a place to live and they were very helpful from across the country, (she had lived in New York and wanted to be closer) they tried to be as helpful as they could and it's worked out fine for us.

Not impressed by this one at all

We toured quite a few Destinations locations, and this one was not impressive. It had no elevators, and while my husband and I are still very active, this may be a concern for those who would have trouble going up and down stairs. They talked the food up quite a bit, but it was not good. This location generally just felt shabby, and isn't in the greatest neighborhood.
