I have really enjoyed my stay here. I had a lovely one bedroom apartment fully furnished. The manager was very kind and even asked me to make a list of things I would need for my apartment. I didn't have to ask for anything because on top of furnishing the apartment she supplied extra things like shampoo/conditioner, toilet paper, new shower curtains, towels, and linens. This has only been my second apartment so I'm not sure if that is common for furnished apartments or not. I appreciated that she would greet me by name and made sure I was comfortable with everything. My apartment was very nice as well. There was new tiles in the bathroom, a lovely island in the kitchen, and even a stocked bookshelf that matched the rest of the furniture. I've never been more satisfied with an apartment.
I lived here for over a year and feel very safe and comfortable. The building is in a very safe in a quiet neighborhood. The residents are quiet, lots of young professionals, University of Akron or Kent State graduate students and older residents that lived here for many years. The manager, Flory is wonderful and very accommodating and hard working. The unit I rented was updated, clean, very spacious, and with plenty of closets. I like the easy access to Akron or Cleveland as the complex is located near an exit on OH State Route 8. Walking distance from the Falls River Square, where you can enjoy a host of festivals, summer concert series.
Trust me, don't rent with them. The management team always, always blame everything on you. Their online payment system had problem, they blame you for not paying on-time (I tried to find the manager, many times, and called her many times, left several messages; but she decided somehow not to respond). She rented a room previously promised to you to someone else, without any notice; no apology. No responses to all your requests; no apology or explanation. Not even one promise kept; no apology. Its management doesn't care about you; the only thing it cares is the money in your pocket. They refurnish rooms frequently (although they tend not to fix the noisy 1970's air conditioner), redecorate the kitchen with really poor asthetics, and charge you thousands of dollars more per year.
The building and grounds are well maintained. The property manager is wonderful and very accommodating. The 2 units I viewed were updated, clean, very spacious, and so many closets. I'm looking forward to being a resident.
