Laid back atmosphere. Power racks and squat racks. Dumbells up to at least 120lb. Weights seperate from cardio area so people won't wine if I'm a little loud when I have 3x their bodyweight in my freaking hands.

Just the usual stuff.

Location is important. A gym close to home or work makes things easier. Also, a gym that has multiple locations in town is nice.
Proper amount of dumbells and weight equipment is important.

If a gym doesn't have at least 4-6 power racks, a couple of squat racks, enough barbells, enough plates and if it doesn't let me deadlift then I don't care if that gym offers me free massages in places where my girlfriend would not allow it or other free stuff I will not go to it.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
