Their "reviews" may be quite accurate. As mentioned size varies. I imagine the staffs are different from Y to Y but I would also suggest that a high proportion of reviews of any vendor have a lot of people that complain without merit. People tend to review to complain not to compliment.
Regardless, if convenient check it out yourself. And besides just what exactly do you require from the staff. I go as a single person and I don't require anything from the staff other than the check in process at the front counter.
Fortunately my Y has a terrific weight room and separate exercise rooms as well as three or four racquetball courts. It also has full size indoor quality basketball quart and gym as well as a 25 meter indoor pool and sauna.
I consider myself lucky to have access to such a facility. Hope you find a health club that you like regardless of who they are.
