They say first impressions are the best. Went to see this place a couple days ago and was met at the door by a young lady Michelle who gave me that first impression that this is a well run place. Told her what I was interested in and she was extremely helpful from that moment on. I was really impressed with the unit I saw. It was well laid out, very modern and clean. I could not believe how large this one bed one bath is. This is definitely a the top of my list.
Apartment is great and the staff is very helpful except for the parking situation. There's no parking available in the evening/night near 7 of the 9 buildings in the woodmont mews community. But there's ample parking near buildings 8 and 9. Speaking to the leasing office people results in no action as they become defensive and say according to the city rules there's enough parking in the community. What they don't understand is the core issue that there's enough parking near two buildings but absolutely no parking near other 7 buildings. The solution of alloting parking spaces to residents solves this but seems like no one working in the leasing office is even acknowledging the issue. Its a very unfortunate situation for most residents who end up parking their vehicles in front of the buildings on the road as they might be coming in with kids late night and cannot drop kids in front of their building alone, drive far away to park, and walk back to their building as well.
The community and apartments are well maintained. The leasing office and maintenance staff are very polite and cordial. But there's a huge parking problem. Among the 8 to 9 buildings in the community, parking situation near buildings 2, 3 & 4 is pathetic. If tenants living in these buildings arrive late evening/night, they have to park in the front of the community and walk all the way to their building in the dark. Many seniors or women don't want to take this risk and park in front of their buildings on the community's road itself. But they get a warning sticker from the maintenance staff if they do that. This issue with parking is going on for the last couple of years and the Woodmont Mews management seems not to be bothered about it as they are not thinking of any solution to address this problem. rather they painted "No parking" in front of some buildings without providing any alternatives.Seniors, women and adults with children cannot be forced to park far away and walk late night to their buildings. After paying such a huge rent, the least anyone would expect is to get a decent spot for parking their car near to their buildings. This is very unfortunate.
I moved into Woodmont Mews when they first opened up and it was fantastic for the first few years. Management was fantastic and everyone made you feel welcome and really made it feel like home. Unfortunately nothing last forever and the good old days of this place are long gone.The downfall of this place began once they started building multiple other Woodmont properties all over the valley. For anyone who moved in within the past couple years; they have no clue what it used to be like or how the lease gets modified more and more every year. Here are a few prime examples of what I am talking about; if you wanted to get out of your lease early there was no problem with this as long as either you or property management could find someone to take the lease over. That has been since erased due to the greediness of being able to "double dip".
Another change that has been made was there is now a yearly $150.00 amenities fee every year this was just implemented a couple years ago. I found this quite insulting as you pay quite a bit of money for what it is.
Going back to all the new Woodmont properties that have been opened; all of the good management and workers have been transferred to the new nicer developments and the Bethlehem property is left with the employees that didn't make the cut. If you go into the clubhouse for anything, you will quickly get the feeling that you are an inconvenience and don't be surprised to get cocky/sarcastic responses.
I am a professional that needs to get rest at night and this place is turning more into a place for "college kids" With that being said; expect parties, noise, stomping up and down the stairs, and door slamming. When I have made complaints about this, I have gotten this response; "We will touch base with them however there isn't much we can do about it except for YOU to call the cops".
Parking: If you get home late; good luck getting a parking space anywhere remotely near your building. .
