Some of the most incompetent and unprofessional people I have ever seen. We will start from the begging and just run from there. Day 1 moved into a flea infested apartment. Office told me I could not move out and that I had to just wait until they could get the exterminator in. I had to find another place to stay for a week because I was getting bitten horribly by them. The office threatened (James the assistant manager) threatened to tow my car for me being legitimately parked in front of my apartment. No reason, just a message saying hey we are towing your car. When I called about it he basically told me he doesn't care and was towing it just cause he could. First maintenance visit, I put in a ticket and they didn't even look at it for 15 days. And thats from the front desk person at the time. Didn't even bother to look at it. Then when they did come to fix my dryer the broke the door to the laundry room. I complained they didn't bother fixing it at any point after promising multiple times they would. Next time they came into my apartment to clean after the 2 kids that moved out. This time they broke the stove and a doorknob to a bedroom. They fixed the stove after a few days and just left the doorknob hanging out of the door. Last big thing (plenty of more little things I hated about this place) is that they are fighting even talking to me about my returning my security deposit. The office sent it to the wrong address, one that doesn't actually exist. So I had to have them resend it. They claim to have, but James (don't trust anything this guy says) decided to lie to me about the status and how it works. Yea I don't know how it works, but it could not be more clear he was just going to lie to me to get me off the phone instead of doing his job. At this point I have been trying to contact the person in charge for 3 weeks and can not get a call or email back. Tried to speak with the person who picked up the phone about it and she wants to cry and take personal
I would never recommend this place to anyone. The sample room they show you looks nothing like actual apartments. To start, our apartment smelled horrible when we moved in. The couch is so sunken in and DIRTY. Its absolutely disgusting. We had to cover it. Next, the furniture (dining table and chairs) is SO OLD AND OUT DATED (not as shown in sample room). Next, the carpet in my room and closet looks as if it has never been cleaned and it smells. The laninant flooring in the kitchen is all shifting apart. We have to continuously push it back. The dryer is so old you have to dry your clothes twice for them to dry (drives up electric bill). Everything pretty much is falling apart. Microwave handle falls off every couple weeks. Windows, blinds and balcony are disgustingly dirty. The hall way to go outside is absolutely disgusting. I have to pick up my dog to go outside or else he will stink from the hall flooring. The shower always looks dirty on the floor no matter how much I scrub. Its pretty much the worst place I ever experienced. The lower rent place doesnt even matter for the disgusting place you get. Now to the amenities, horrible gym and the pool area is so run down. Not worth a penny to live here. Oh and the utilities cap covers nothing. Utilities bills are always insane even when you use utilities sparsely. It makes no sense. Management and maintenance is so terrible. The only good thing is the nice workers (not management). I would way rather spend more money, then to spend less money and live here.
I do NOT recommend this place.
Do not, I repeat DO NOT live here if you do not have a car to drive to class. The shuttle is always broken or they dont have drivers. But do they ever adjust the amount of rent we owe since they dont provide the services they promised? No. Also, the management could care less about ever responding to your questions or problems. Myself and my roommates have been asking them to put gravel down (which needed done when I moved in the first week of Feb 2016) since August. They still havent done it and the walkway is currently flooded as Im typing this. Another thing is the insects. I keep my room clean and I still find house centipedes, earwigs, and slugs in my bathroom regularly. Do not let them fool you into signing a lease.
I would not recommend it to anybody. It just "seems" to be cheap. They say that you are given a certain cap on the utility but you still pay a lot to a company named conservice and nobody explains you what the heck cost you 70 dollars when you weren't even home all day. My room was freezing like the Arctic though I would turn up the heat to 75 degrees. Also, the lease is a whole different issue. You literally have to die to get out of it or find a relet. They will charge you 350 dollars as the relet fee. They will also charge you a short term lease fee of 75 dollars per month if you do not renew for a year. And most importantly, do not trust the management. Nobody really knows what they are doing. They are rigid, inflexible, rude, and they treat you like a three year old. They might also charge you for damages that you are not aware of while you are moving out. So, if you have already signed the lease, do take the pictures of EVERYTHING in your room as well as the common area. Most importantly, DO NOT trust the management simply because it changes all the time. In the one and a half years I lived there, I saw four managers. One manager might say something to you, but by the next few months, they will be gone. If you want to save your money and sanity, do not live here. They change this place's name all the time. But what they really need to do is change the people in the office and hire more polite, professional, and understanding employees.
