These apartments are very dated. Cabinets, appliances, outlets were in poor condition. Cockroaches were a problem. Management will try to bully you so if you feel you are right on an issue stand your ground. Utilities paid with rent are high (averaging $120 or more per month excluding electric) and there is no detail of what they are for. Don't expect any of your deposit back on move out and they will charge you a huge amount on your final bill to replace the carpet, $750 in our case.

Deborah, we're disappointed to read that your experience with our community wasn't to your liking. We take issues regarding pests very seriously, and residents are always welcome to discuss solutions with us. We try our best to prepare everyone for potential fees upon moving out. Ultimately, additional charges are dependent upon the condition of the items in your home. If you feel as though you were unfairly charged, please give us a call to further discuss our evaluation, thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review! Unfortunately our community is without a website at the moment, but if you have any questions or concerns regarding The Lakes, you can give us a call at (505) 881-0080 - we're always happy to help!


Management will enter apartment without proper notice. Has no respect for tenants.


Was this helpful?
Unfortunately, this is not true. Our staff follows the law and we are not allowed to enter unless we give "24 hour intent to enter", which is stated in your lease. The only time we would enter an apartment without notice is if there is an emergency, such as an active water leak. Our staff will still call. If you have an issue, you can ALWAYS call the office so that we can assure you that we are doing everything we can to make sure you are happy living at The Lakes.
