10 Reviews for Rocktowne

Melissa the property manager says thinks like "all of the residents are my kids" or "it's the mother in me/side". It is very true. She is a wonderful property manager! When you even just need someone to talk to she listens and is there for you. They will also work with you not matter the situation. Dan the gentleman that does the lenses side of things is very understanding and accommodating. The maintenance staff are all gentleman as well. RockTowne offers so much value for what you pay for. I don't know if you will truly find a better value for your dollar in central PA than this place. The only potential downside could be the parking that there is not assigned spots. Other than that I really can not complain about anything. I can not thing of a issue that was not fixed. The only reason I may be leaving will be because of a new job commute ( about 1 hour ) just past Hershey. Even with the commute I am contemplating staying and making the commute because of not finding something better at the same value.

The apartments were in great condition, the management and maintenance people were easy to work with. The only problem I had was getting them to fix smaller things which just required a bit of prodding to get done. Overall, I had no real problems with Rocktowne
