It used to be beautiful ... my father used to run the place... then the new owners took over, tore down all the trees, and turned it into high priced slums... good job ... great business men. Full Review ▶


I have been here for sometime now and are amazed at the new managements projects. We haven't seen so much money and improvements going on here since we got here. I feel safer than ever here with the management and owners… Full Review ▶


Vernon Gardens has new management. I've lived here for a while and this is a great improvement. Improvements are being done to the buildings and grounds and my concerns are responded to quickly. I couldn't be happier with the maintenance staff,… Full Review ▶


I have lived here for 3 1/2 years. It's very hard to find a place that allows dogs, and the heat and hot water is included. I've had great neighbors, and the walls are very soundproof. Being on the 1st floor,… Full Review ▶


I've lived at this complex for a little over 2.5 years. I live in a one bedroom and haven't had any major issues. The kitchen is small and outdated, the bathroom is outdated as well (everything works). Decent sized apartment with… Full Review ▶


It's a nice affordable complex which is currenlty under new managment. Very friendly staff is working with contractors. New manager advised that are in process of updating boilers that were very old. It's safe and convenient location. Full Review ▶

I visited in sept 2014. The office staff was friendly and I was tioldvthe vcomplex had been sold recently band new renovations were being done over the next year. I saw a 2 bedroom unit. It was very clean and everything… Full Review ▶


My boyfriend and i have been living here for a year. Unfortunately i think we will have to stay another year because there is no other place THIS cheap that will allow our 75lb black lab. I think the price and… Full Review ▶


I lived here for a year and the maintenance was awful. I moved in and the heat was stuck on at 90 degrees. When i called to tell the office about it, they just turned the heat off all together. So… Full Review ▶


Lived here on the 1st floor for almost 8 years. If not for ear plugs...I never would have made it. Any problems you call into the office only seems to get you lip service. In most cases...If you need something fixed...you… Full Review ▶


I have lived here for almost a year and I do enjoy it. There are some ups and downs of course as is with any apartments. One thing I would have liked is if they could update the ovens in the… Full Review ▶


The health department and building inspector come out about once every 12 months due to violations and the place still doesn't fix anything. The place has mold, terrible basement/storage areas, the windows are rotten, some doors are rotten, the bathrooms feature… Full Review ▶


We've only lived here for 2 months, but so far we love it! it's a good deal at 825 with heat and hot water included, nice and spacious, cute layout, our neighbors are nice, whenever we have an issue they come… Full Review ▶


If you have an apartment on the 1st floor good luck all you hear is bang, bang, bang from the 2nd floor tenants....next door has dogs that bark all day long into the night straight....cats get lose and pee in the… Full Review ▶


I lived here and it was a terrible experience, just as everyone else has said. I could only take it for 6 months...then I HAD to move. The walls are so thin, I could hear what my upstairs neighbor was watching… Full Review ▶


My husband and I looked for months to find the most inexpensive apartment at a decent and safe location. When he picked Vernon garden, I didn't have any high expectations. But I must say that I am really pleased so far,… Full Review ▶

My boyfriend and I went to look at this complex the other day and all I have to say is YUCK!! I wouldn't stay here if you paid me. We showed up for our appointment and walked into the leasing office… Full Review ▶


I am writing this review because I was surprised at how negative the other comments are about Vernon Gardens. My husband and I have lived here since 2009 and are overall pretty happy with the place. We even renewed our lease.… Full Review ▶

Although I have not lived here, I did visit the property. The brochures and advertisements all say it is "luxury" when in reality it is far from it. The buildings are old, the fixtures even older. The floors creak so loudly,… Full Review ▶


I moved in 2 years ago and have had nothing but problems. Like everyone else on here says: the windows are crap - you can't open them or they barely open. The basements is musty moldy and wet 99% of the… Full Review ▶


Ive been living in these apartments for 3 years. Its really not that bad. It has its problems but If you are persistant on something being fixed it will be done. I have some windows that dont open. I have a… Full Review ▶


It's the cheapest 2-bedroom townhouse in the area. Our dishwasher/garbage disposal has been broken (leaking) for about 4 months, still hasn't been fixed. Out of the 10 windows in the apartment, only 5 of them open and barely at that, and… Full Review ▶


Storage area broken into Cars consistently broker into Can easily hear those above you and around you Windows don't open easily (almost impossible) Laundry down in flooded storage area (I wouldn't call this a room) We were told no dogs allowed… Full Review ▶


I lived there for one year and ran as soon as my lease was up. I can not stand that old woman with half a brain. She has no answers or time for anyone. Like the other reviews I waited until… Full Review ▶


The first problem came before I even moved in. I was told by the rental agent that the rent was $675. Come to find out, the day of signing the contract that the actualy rent price was $765, she claimed she… Full Review ▶


The company that owns this complex doesn't care about anything since they are out of state. The staff that runs this place is lacking to say the least. The condition of the apartments is old and poorly maintained. The heat works… Full Review ▶


I lived in Vernon Gardens. Yes, the prices are reasonable, but the place is very old and worn down. It is in dire need of renovation! It is a place that you would expect older people to live in that just… Full Review ▶


we thought this place was nice when we move in but weve had a broken sink for about 4-5 months (its been so long I cant remeber exactly) the carpet in the hallway was torn up about 7 months ago and… Full Review ▶


I lived in Vernon Gardens for two years. Since day one I was complaining about my bathtub. After the fist year I started noticing the basement storage area (which was already musty) was getting very moldy. When I went to move… Full Review ▶


Don't live here. The apartments are a good size, at least the one bedrooms are, but the place is very dirty, old, drafty and there are lots of bugs. The basement, which is where the storage area and laundry facility is… Full Review ▶


Office staff difficult to deal with. Did her job but did not appear to enjoy doing so. Maintenance horrible. We needed to hound them repeatedly to get anything fixed. Doors and windows VERY old and extremely drafty. Poor care of grounds… Full Review ▶


I lived in Vernon Gardens and had an apartment that faced the street and the apartment was still quiet I never had a problem sleeping. My neighbors were all very nice and the leasing agent was very pleasant her name was… Full Review ▶
