Yes, it is very cheap however the units are small so you get what you pay for. Don't file a maintenance issue over the internet because no one really checks it. Always call. I had a cricket and spider problem when… Full Review ▶

First of all, maintenance is a joke. You have to call multiple times for the same problem that they only temporarily fix. 2nd: Rent goes up faithfully $30 every year, yet there is very little to show for such an increase.… Full Review ▶

The Orchards overall is better than public housing for DC or Baltimore. However, it is still relatively unsafe (drugs, burglary, & loitering). Find a better hood to settle down in. Full Review ▶
