Beware of hidden cost. The apartments are extremely tiny and so called Renos are barely a paint job cover up. Hall filthy also.

I can go on and on and on for the many reasons not to move here. My basement flooded MULTIPLE times while living here not to mention it was flooding SEWAGE from the connecting townhouses. Yes I had Poop in my basement; ruining all of my things MULTIPLE TIMES. What did Alden do? Take their sweet time to get it fixed- maintenance request put in 1 day they come 3 days later with a temporary fix while I have Poop in my basement. Yup. It wasnt until I told them I was going to call the health department that they actually sent professionals to look at the problem. Lets move on....I had an infestation of roaches! Out of no where!! Im not sure if they bombed my neighbors house but they came all to my kitchen. I called them in PANIC BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY BUGS! -they closed my maintenance request while I was at work the NEXT DAY -I had to call them to figure out why they closed it considering that I hadnt been contacted. They told me pest control would tend to my apartment on Thursday- IT WAS MONDAY! Poor...Poor...Poor management! Haha! The whole office is filled with uneducated and unprofessional people. Please dont expect to get your security deposit back lol! Dont give them your money!

I dont recommend living here, their maintenece team at the end inspection apparently doesnt use the sheet as reference from when you moved in. I had marked the brown and black stains (that were in EVERY room), and got the bill back saying I owed money for a carpet that I know I did not stain. Unless they want you to lift the carpets up (which I know from working in the renting business is NOT my responsibility to do) than they are scamming you. Maintenance takes forever (I tried to be patient knowing that they are short staffed but a month to fix a light fixture that FELL on me is ridiculous, almost a month to fix my mailbox door, and a week to even have someone treat the cockroaches in the complex? I like to consider myself a patient and understanding person, but its ridiculous!! Also moved out of the complex before the date they stated I moved out and am being charged for that too. I WOULD NOT RENT HERE!! The only plus side is that some of the management office women are nice, but it doesnt help how nice they are when the company themselves are tryin to screw someone over who lived in the complex DURING the management change. I have tried calling about the security deposit and again no one called back again, and they didnt either when I lived there as well. I would have to blow up their phones to get anywhere with anything.
