I lived here for two years. I lived in a woods/Rex hospital facing unit. It was very quiet and I had a nice view of the woods. I live on the top floor wherever I go to avoid hearing anyone upstairs.… Full Review ▶

I cannot recommend living here unless you enjoy spending most of your time complaining to management, then calling again when something isn't done properly the first time. And if you don't mind roaches and other bugs. Some of the disparity in… Full Review ▶

About a year ago, when it seemed that things could improve, a new nightmare begins for the residents of Lake Boone Trail. Beyond human understanding, there begins the relationship of our apartment complex with AUM-Inc, a so called water company .… Full Review ▶

This place is cheap, but for what you get it's not even worth it. It makes more sense to pay a little bit extra and have a better living environment. At move in, there were bugs present in the apartment. That's… Full Review ▶

Many people seem to leave 1 star on everything reviews because something happens and they get disenchanted, then they take their anger and frustration (of not being able to "stick one to the man" and just move out due to law)… Full Review ▶
