No Uniform pricing across the apartments. The people who joined 2 years before are continued with same price of $1650 and the same vacant apartments are leased at $2040. The same services are being charged with different price variations. I recommend… Full Review ▶

I was there for 2 years. It was a fairly good neighborhood & conveniently located But you just got to forget your rental deposit & they are rip-off. My car parked outside next to the apartment was broken into. I would… Full Review ▶

I have lived on the premises for over a year now but I will be leaving soon as I decided that enough was enough: - poor insulation: the window frames are so cheap that they let even the lightest breeze flow… Full Review ▶

We lived at Olive Garden Apartments for almost six years and will always have fond memories of the place. The ground workers were friendly and responsive - boy, do they work hard, since it's such a big complex with so many… Full Review ▶

I'm surprised that even after reviews about deposit hogging these people don't seem to improve. Now even I'm in the list of guys whose deposit is gone. Full Review ▶

I stayed in the 1 bed appt for 1 year. The apartments are big and spacious compared to most of the other 1 bed apartments. But the disadvantages are more: 1. No matter how you keep your Appt, you'd not get… Full Review ▶

I had a 1-BR here for 6 months, and moved out only because I was moving into another place with two other guys to save rent. My stay here was almost entirely positive. Here are the keypoints: Staff: The manager Jane… Full Review ▶

I lived in Olive Garden for a long time and it is truly a wonderful place. The manager, Jane, can seem a little curt but she is very prompt and responsive. The complex is very well maintained and is very green.… Full Review ▶

If you decide to live here, keep in mind that you will losse all your security deposit when you move out. The manager ( Jane ) is so rude and she always thinks she is a boss and you have to… Full Review ▶

I've been here for almost 3 years. Good thing for this complex is it is not expensive and you can have lower rent if you renew your contract. 1 bed room apartment here is larger than other places. Space-wise it worths… Full Review ▶

We lived at Olive Garden Apartments for nearly 3 years in a 2 bedrooms apartment.
We really like this place, we had a cottage style apartment and it was very quiet even if one side was facing the street.

In two bedroom cottages which were built about forty years ago there are thin paper walls, so you can hear everything your neighbours are doing (including in bedroom.)
Though in more recent one-bedroom units walls are ok.
Maintenance people are very… Full Review ▶

Positives:

- decent rent

Negatives:
- Most of the deposit taken when you move out, never mind the condition.
- Paper-thin walls you can poke through… Full Review ▶

My staying with this apartment is a very bad experience. The manager (Jane) is very rude and she is always trying to find trouble with you. Plus, when we moved out, she not only got all our deposit, but also sent… Full Review ▶

The apt is very old and you can get annoying clicking noise at the midnight, and get the cooking smell from your neighbor...The manager is arrogant. Full Review ▶

There are quite a few problems with living here.

- Paper thin walls. It´s ridiculously bad. If a person walks outside the door, the sound resonates inside. If someone closes (not slams) a car door, the entire apartment shudders. Working… Full Review ▶

The environment is very nice. Rent is reasonable in this area. But when you move out, 50% of the deposit will be paid for cleaning of carpets, windows, kitchens, drapes, etc., which is not usual among all apartments. Full Review ▶

I stayed for 18 months and genuinely liked the place. Staff was friendly, they even let me borrow stuff. They fixed the heater very quickly from time to time. They lowered my rent 4 times while being month to month. I… Full Review ▶

The walls and ceilings are paper thin so unless you don?t have any neighbors, you will have a noise problem. I can literally hear the people next door sneeze. It was annoying not being able to get adequete sleep. I?d be… Full Review ▶

When we moved out, they charged almost
500$, for cleaning a one bedroom apartment!
Think again if you are considering this
apartment. The building is 50 years old,
do expect maintenance staff knocking your
door from time to time. Full Review ▶

I have lived here almost one year and have zero complaints. Twice I´ve needed maintenance to check something out and each time management responded immediately and maintenance came right over.

The management is wonderful, the grounds are beautiful, the complex… Full Review ▶

I have to agree with one of the other postings, Bob and Sue were great. Alas they left and so did the prompt and helpful nature of the management. Things don´t get taken care of. Jane thinks she really is a… Full Review ▶

To clear up some confusion in the prior reviews.. Bob & Sue were the managers here for many years. They left in November 2000 and were replaced by Elizabeth.

Our family has lived at Olive Garden since 1989. In the… Full Review ▶

Save your money, there are cheaper and better apartments with much more polite and friedly staff. I think one of the previous people who rated this apartment confused Sue with Elisabeth. She needs to get off her high horse. You´ll notice… Full Review ▶

My first question is, who´s Sue?? I think the last person was confused because there´s no one in the office by that name that I´m aware of.

Anyway, I´ve lived in the complex for a year now. It´s generally pretty… Full Review ▶

Management bad. Sue is a b*tch. Apparently, being a manager in this complex is like a big CEO job or something. She´s rude and has an attitude. No one in the complex likes her and wants to deal with her. I… Full Review ▶

This is the worst place i have ever lived in. Management will be nice when want your business, but as soon as you become a tenant, they´re extremely rude, unrespectful, liars and lack managerial skills. Nothing special about the place. Managers… Full Review ▶

I´m not sure what planet the prior reviewer is from, but the management of Olive Garden is far from incompetent. We´ve been living here for the past 12 years and the management has always been responsive to our requests. We´ve never… Full Review ▶

No real troubles during my stay there, but also nothing special. The management was questionable there, seemed nice but incompetent otherwise.

Good, friendly management
Maintanance will fix problems quickly
Quiet--no loud, obnoxious people
Will reduce your rent if you are month-to-month and paying above market. This is a very unusual move for apartments. Full Review ▶

Quite apartment complex.
Good management.
Looks old from outside but is pretty
strong, no creaking noise if someone walks
on second floor and looks new inside.
Some units have large bedrooms with well
lit sliding glass wall windows. Full Review ▶
