% Recommended
City Average

Horrific Noise, Violence, Meth Problem, Expensive HUD Project Horrific Noise from four near by construction sites, nonstop traffic and did I mention noise? Neighbors are antisocial and are violent, police are abundant. Often can see ambulances on the street taking victims… Full Review ▶


I stayed at the Sitka for a few nights for a reasonable fee of 145$ a night through AirBnB.com. The property manager was nonchalant and able to aid me in my stay. I was able to drop off the payment and… Full Review ▶


Excellent housing. Clean, great office staff, exceptional manager. Inside and outside well maintained. All issues solved promptly Best apt in Portland I would recommend to anyone. Full Review ▶

Prospective Resident

For starters, the place smells like a combination of rotting food, urine and pot. The management will not tell you about the problems in this building. They desperately want you to move in because they receive bonuses for high occupancy rates.… Full Review ▶

I went apartment hunting per the recommendation of my case-worker coming from a DA situation. The Sitka is one of the buildings that takes section 8. I wanted to get more information about the rooms available, floor plans, utilities, details. The… Full Review ▶


Maybe I care too much about customer satisfaction or safety but this place is downright gross and disgusting. It looks nice from the outside. However once you sign away your life and give them all of your personal financial documents in… Full Review ▶

I visited the property with a friend a few weeks ago. What atrocious service we received. We were treated with disrespect and the agents were very unfriendly. They gave another couple a tour but when we asked for a tour, they… Full Review ▶


I've lived in the Sitka for a little over four years and I love it! The management is great, very caring and keep the buildings and grounds in great shape. When I need any kind of maintenance, it is taken care… Full Review ▶


I have lived at The SItka for 5 years and everything here is as good as it gets in apartment living. The management staff headed by --- and her staff, ----------------, -------------- take care of all the needs of each resident… Full Review ▶


I was just evicted after paying my share for many years. I was a great tenant. I began having friends over that were not ----- and the management was very racist against me and my friends. Very discriminatory management. I would… Full Review ▶


Just moved out, mold in the apartment, absolutely a major problem, I was alway sick and ill. Management workers were very rude. Lots of smokers on the floor in a non smoking place. It good to be gone from there. Very… Full Review ▶


I was on the waiting list and it was worth it! Took a long time but it all worked out. Love my place. I have lived in many income restricted buildings for many years. I love this one. They actually have… Full Review ▶


Hello, I have noticed more activity than normal on this website concerning the Sitka. I thought I would share my thoughts also. I was one of the original residents and recently left due to the immense difficulty I endured when I… Full Review ▶


I waited on the waiting list for many months before given the opportunity to move in. I had thought that the sitka was a very cool and trendy place to live. It is like they say, the grass is always greener… Full Review ▶


The pearl is a nice neighborhood, thats about all... Bad parking, the whole lobby smells like gas, Mold, some lady flooded her apartment and all of the apartments beneath her, rampant bedbugs, scary area with drug dealers behind the building selling… Full Review ▶


I was on the waiting list for a little over a year, but it was well worth the wait. The location couldn't be better. Within a few blocks I have a grocery store, my bank, gym, office store, bars and restaurants… Full Review ▶


Just a quick note to say that I have just celebrated my third anniversary at the Sitka and I'm as happy here today as I was the day I moved in. And, the icing on the cake for me is the… Full Review ▶

Looks and sounds like an okay place to live if you're not in a hurry. Rent-stabilized apartments in a nice building in a hot part of town...of course there is going to be far greater demand than supply. And they don't… Full Review ▶


This place is good for people coming from out-of-state because it's a safe bet. The neighborhood is quiet and safe compared to the rest of downtown (very few panhandlers here), and it's close to everything with the streetcar right outside, Safeway… Full Review ▶


I have lived all over the world and in at least 20 different apartments and also had a house. As a former landlord/owner of a 15 unit property I have a good picture of both sides of the landlord/tenant situation. Anyone… Full Review ▶


You really cannot beat this place. Sure, there are a few quirks. But, for the price, the location and apartments cannot be beat. I am not a huge fan of the Pearl, but living so close to downtown is nice. I… Full Review ▶


I've lived here for two years. I love my apartment. New building new appliances, great view of the Fremont Bridge. Close to everything. My only complaints: The carpet is awful...so hard to keep clean. Also, the noise from the trains coming… Full Review ▶


SITKA is the best apartment building in Portland, OR consindering its prime location and its price. Most people can't afford to live in the Pearl so the residents of Sitka are the lucky ones. Everything in the building is well-maintained and… Full Review ▶


Some residents here are inconsiderate to their neighbors. Dogs are barking all times of night, people slamming doors and talking loudly early in the morning. These apartments are like living in a college dormitory. Full Review ▶


I have been a resident of the Sitka apartments for seven years now and I absolutely love this place, in that time I have very rarely heard anything over normal talking from my neighbors and as a rule I have to… Full Review ▶


I have been living at the Sitka since it opened 1.5 years ago, and I have really enjoyed it here. Yeah there are the noises of the city, but come on if you move downtown what do you expect? Thats what… Full Review ▶


For the past 6 months that I stayed in Sitka was absolutely nightmare!
Very noisy and very unconsiderate neighbors that I had. I heard their every noisy including those poeple who were walking down the hallway at the middle or early hours… Full Review ▶


I applied and was lied to by management as to availability. I got in to my surprise due to someone leaving shortly after moving in. I had no idea that they moved out because they had immediate issues with management. I… Full Review ▶


This is by far an amazing place to live. Great, friendly staff. It is always clean and well kept. An incredible location. Could it get any better. The price is insanley affordable.
If your lucky enough to even get on a waiting… Full Review ▶


Ah, Sitka...it has accoustic separation they said- quiet?
What a lie! I knew somebody who lives on the second floor and he's been hearing every footsteps above him, a person that I know who lives at the fifth floor, she can hear… Full Review ▶
