Unlike the other reviews, I have never really had a negative experience while living here.
They have never messed up my bill, and it has been very easy/accessible to pay with the option to print a receipt which I always do just in case. For my senior year, I wanted to live alone since I have two dogs - and this has been the perfect option for me. It's actually affordable because no way could I afford $1,200 every month plus pet deposits and utilities like most other places charge. They are always doing fun things for us like "Food Fridays" where we have had food trucks, Chickfila, Firehouse Subs, Sonic Drinks, you name it! There is an awesome Starbucks coffee machine they always keep replenished and little refreshments like chips and chex mix they keep around for us. Shortly after I moved in, they even added a little dog park with string lights and cute benches... The exercise facility is amazing, with high-grade equipment; and on top of that, they have amazing study rooms that I have used a TON to study with friends rather than try and find a spot in Moody.
My only complaint HAD been the washers and dryers simply because it was a pain in the butt to get a bunch of quarters because they didn't have a machine for us. Every once in a while a washer or dryer would go out, maybe 2 at a time max - but there are like 8 others each... I have never had to turn around and wait to do laundry because they were full or out of order. AND, they heard all these complaints, and in April we while have brand new washers and dryers that won't require only coins!
Sorry for the long review, I just didn't want people to miss out on an affordable and great opportunity because of a couple of salty reviews.
P.S. Maintenance is quick! Which was a nice surprise because I've never had that! (The max I waited was 2 days and that was just for my garbage disposal)
has a very nice size and is in a nice area
