Boardwalk is a great place to live. I feel safe, the staff is friendly, and there are alot of up to date and accessible amenities. My only complaint is dealing with overall energy and power use. The Air conditioner in my unit is an older model. It has some issues that need to be inspected and dealt with. However, the maintanence staff, that i have dealt with, seems unprepared and not properly trained.
Management team lacks professionalism especially the new security guards. Something must be done immediately to get better security as current security does not know how to deal with residents and is extremely condescending and threatening. There is no reason for security to be threatening toward residents and be someone who is unapproachable. Also carpet needs to be removed from all apartments, and go to other methods of flooring.
Overall the experience has been good. My apartment has had issues over the three years living in Boardwalk and that is why the rating is not higher. The apartment is great, but we have had an ant problem since we moved in that has never been solved as well as many maintenance concerns that have taken anywhere from a week to never being solved. We have had many great staffers try and take care of our needs, but we have also had people disrespect us and not treat us properly.
Very slow response to work orders if any response at all.
There is just a general delay in getting maintenance confers taken care of that can get annoying. The fact that Boardwalk is pretty outdated for the monthly price it asks for is also a factor. There are other neighborhoods that offer way more for around the same price so Boardwalk should invest more in their amenities and overall aesthetic appeal.
