Check Complex Availability
The Merrit River is amazing. All of the staff is so friendly, helpful, and attentive. I feel like I'm living in a posh hotel. The entire complex is spotlessly clean and the coffee bar is always stocked! While the dog path… Full Review ▶
We have been living at Merritt river for 2 years. We love the leasing office and all of the staff. From our first day when Justin showed us around we have had nothing but excellent experiences. Justin is always helpful in… Full Review ▶
Overall the apartments are good. The staff is hit or miss. If you call the leasing office, they are very helpful. If you try to speak with the concierge, you might get a different response depending on who is working. For… Full Review ▶
Great luxury apartments. Nice clubhouse, pool, BBQ area. Convenient location. The apartments towards the rail line would be noisy. Full Review ▶
I'm going on my fourth year here. I love the location. The staff is great. The problem is the constant construction. Issues with the parking lot and. This year the garbage shutes where both down and had to carry your garbage… Full Review ▶
I would just like to say i love it here the location is great and the staff here is very helpful. i just moved in 7 months ago and the maintenance guys have been great. there is some construction going on… Full Review ▶
Although Merritt River looks nice from the outside, they have a lot of issues that negatively impact their residents. I would not recommend ANYONE to live in this complex especially if they are looking to have a home that is quiet… Full Review ▶
I've lived in this building for just over two years, in two different apartments. No matter which way you turn, there's a lot of noise. I find the slogan, "Quiet and Peaceful" ironic. I'll leave the garage renovation out of the… Full Review ▶
We've lived at Merritt River for one year and it has been a great experience. Aside from it being a great location, the apartment itself is bright and spacious. Amenities are nice and parking spaces are always available. The best part… Full Review ▶
I have lived here twice, once 5 years ago on a corporate deal that offered me to stay for 3 months in a furnished apartment, it was a great experience. Last year we had a family addition and went searching for… Full Review ▶
It's not all it's cracked up to be. The construction continues. The jackhammering, at least, finally ceased after 10 straight weeks seven days a week. Yes, 7 days a week of jackhammering. Water Works of Ansonia is obviously equally as incompetant… Full Review ▶
I've lived here for a year and a half and so far I have no complaints, especially since Lincoln Property took over. The management office is attentive and courteous, and they really pay attention to all the little details that make… Full Review ▶
I am a current resident, have lived here for 2 years and 3 months and I would NOT refer anyone to these apartments. Here are the reasons why: Currently this building was bought by a new company and since then it… Full Review ▶
Legal information: The word LUXURY in the ads for the Merritt River Apartments has no LEGAL meaning and neither conveys or promises anything. It is merely a marketing hook. The word LUXURY has no LEGAL definition in this state, consequently the… Full Review ▶
The place is quite peaceful and location is beautiful....feels just like home..away from home!!!! Full Review ▶
Location: BITE ME! There are so many empty, run-down shopping centers around here that I hardly know what to do with myself. I just can't decide what's better - the Rainbow Plaza or the Korean massage parlor that just got busted… Full Review ▶
I'm on the second floor, and yes I do get woken by the first train. But hey, I knew what I was getting into, and besides it is a great alarm clock! I have had little to do with the staff,… Full Review ▶
I disagree with the cranky, rude and abnoxious comments below. I haven't read one comment about delay in maintenance repairs, uncleanliness or even that the building is not being taken care of. The alarms DO NOT go off unless someone like… Full Review ▶
I'd recommend looking elsewhere. At first glance, it's seems like the ideal place.....beautiful deck, swimming pool, secure (so you think). Until you sign on the dotted line. Once you do, you are at the mercy of Merrit River Management. They will… Full Review ▶
If so, then this is the place for you!
I don't know why they are so inflexible and difficult to deal with, but they are. It really is unfortunate, as I was really excited when I first moved in. Now I just… Full Review ▶
Paul the manger is the worst person ever known.He has a lot of attitude, very arrogant and unhelpful to the residents. Full Review ▶
The grounds are pretty nice, but the apartment interiors are nothing impressive for this price range.
It is true that the staff doesn't treat you like a customer, rather, its more like students in a dorm.
There aren't a ton of choices… Full Review ▶
I have to agree with the other (real) reviews. When it comes down to it, this is not a nice place to live.
1. Staff is rude
2. Appliances and carpeting are cheap
3. Walls are cracking
4. Garage is not safe
5. Did I… Full Review ▶
When you rent an apartment you are really paying for the facilities, the grounds, the location, etc. Most people don't think about the staff both at the apartment and at the corporate office that owns it.
The facilities at Merritt River seem… Full Review ▶
I checked out Merritt River and there are things you should know before signing a lease.
1) The train blows its'whistle on oneside of the building at an intersection. It is extremely loud and travels until midnight and starts at 6am. There… Full Review ▶
I am a resident and am moving out due to a purchase of a home. Although I am looking forward to investing my money into a mortgage versus renting, I have to disagree with my fellow neigbors. The management office is… Full Review ▶
Overall, the premises and apartments are very nice. I felt safe and very comfortable with one exception. The apartment complex is literally located right next to train tracks and the trains run all day into the early morning, regularly blowing a… Full Review ▶
I am so glad to finally be out of this apartment complex and I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone. The worst problem is the incredibly rude and incompetent office staff (maintainence staff is acceptable). I have never in… Full Review ▶
This is a real review. It wasn't written by Merritt River Staff, it was written by a resident. I'll try to be fair.
I know that the staff can't do anything about trains, demolition explosions, or even the cracks in my walls.… Full Review ▶
I've read with dismay all the ratings below, and they are horrifying. Many of the stories from residents are true, even if they aren't all that reasonable. The scariest part though, was the reviews written by the staff themselves. That, to… Full Review ▶
Just left Merritt River Apartments after almost two years of living here. Some parts of living here are great. Pool, large parking garage, appliances and newness are all great. Oh the negatives, the office building that is built behind the apartments… Full Review ▶
I work for GE and maintain 17 corporate apartments for our auditors that are auditing local GE Businesses. Yes, I can say that the train can/does put a damper on things however; I know the higher up you are the less… Full Review ▶
whenever i have an issue in my home, the maintenance guys come within 24 hours. i love it here, no complaints. Full Review ▶
Has anyone else been given a problem about the 60-days notice required before you can vacate an apartment? I received a written letter stating 30 days, and now management is saying that no such letter exists. If anyone else experienced such… Full Review ▶
I've lived here now almost a year, and although this place has gone through some management changes and has some kinks to be worked out, I think it is an overall nice place to live.
Yes, there are leaks in… Full Review ▶
Been here just over a year after owning my own home or 20 years. What a pleasure. This is a vacation but somewhat pricey(its a mortgage payment). As for security, I´m in law enforcement, crime will find the careless. And as… Full Review ▶
Dear Anonymous Critics,
I know for a fact that if I have an issue, I´m not afraid to voice it. Let´s be fair people, rather than cowardly. If you have an issue and it´s addressable, address it. Can the staff from… Full Review ▶
Residents received this today:
"This notice is to advise you of recent criminal activity on the property. A resident reported a vehicle burglary incident occurring with our community..This notice is intended to provide beneficial information allowing you to make appropriate decisions… Full Review ▶
As the building´s fire alarm is sounding, there goes the professional Merritt staff...writing more reviews and calling their customers "losers".
Nice place, huh?
You´ll love this new batch in the main office. Real pieces of work. Customer service disasters (but what… Full Review ▶
It´s funny that one critic mentioned that employees of Merritt River are "one step up from a corner store", when we all know that this could mean great $ considering the cost of living in Fairfield County. The bottom line is,… Full Review ▶
Be careful at Merritt River. I am not going to get into the battle on these pages over the staff. Everyone has a different experience. Let´s face it, apartment workers are a step up from your local convenience store so as… Full Review ▶
Having moved to Connecticut from Chicago I was unaware of the prompt schedule of the New York/Connecticut trains. They are always on time. Move to Merritt River and you will never need to look at a clock again. The noise of… Full Review ▶
Not only has my move been easy - considering I relocated from the West Coast with GE. But, my apt is about the same as my apt was in Frisco, and perfect. New construction is always best in my eyes. I… Full Review ▶
I moved here because one of the (many) former office employees is a good friend of mine. When she was here, this place was decent except for the noise.
Anyway, I had lunch with her today and she… Full Review ▶
I really enjoy Merritt River and would recommend it... In fact, I have referred two of my collegues from GE and have received referrals from Merritt River.
Great place to call home! So far, so good.

All I have to say after reading the reviews is WOW. Do all of these people live the same place that I live? I have to agree that the train is loud along with the construction behind the building. But how… Full Review ▶
The Merritt River advertises itself as a luxury apartment. What a joke. Does a luxury apartment have a train running through your living room from 5:30 AM to Midnight? You will certainly get to know each of the conductors very well.… Full Review ▶
I lived in Merritt River for 9-months and I caution anyone who is looking for an apartment near Norwalk to keep looking if you are considering Merritt River.
For starters, the staff is rude. The staff will also cut financial… Full Review ▶
Up until a few months ago this place was bearable. I was okay with the noisy train and cracks in the walls until a few months ago the whole office emptied out like it was on fire. The peeople that used… Full Review ▶
The common thread through most of the reviews here is a definite problem with the attentiveness, courtesy, and ability of the staff here. Not to mention the turnover of staff. I can say as a resident that these issues are absolutely… Full Review ▶
We have been at Merritt River for less than one year, and do not plan to re-sign. Since we have been here, there have been now 3 building managers and none of the origional staff is here from when we moved… Full Review ▶
I am a current resident, and I will re-up my lease when it expires, as it is a nice building, convenient to my work, and my overall experience has been positive.
The office staff has been fine w/r/t me, although… Full Review ▶
I do agree this is a nice place to live, some people that live here complain about the construction but they had to of seen it happening while they were taking tour of the place and it is not like the… Full Review ▶
These apartment are nice with the exception of the noise you get from the train. Even though we have had some maintenance problems, the office tried to fix everything in a timely manner and I appreicated the effort. They have gone… Full Review ▶
The staff here is far and away the most rude and incompetent group of people I have ever met. The office staff has no interest in doing their jobs, but seem to genuinely enjoy making your life as a rentor more… Full Review ▶
After reading some of the other reviews, it is obvious that the staff is writing reviews here on this website. Read the one titled "Best in Norwalk" and tell me that wasn´t written by a staff member! One of the office… Full Review ▶
Just so any person trying to figure out if this is a nice place to live or not, I want to let you know that the office staff has been writing a lot of these reviews. (you can tell by what´s… Full Review ▶
First off, I´ve been here 8 long months and must agree that, yes, the new staff are disgraceful pitiful managers who suck at their miserable jobs.
Now about the trains: The leasing office only wants your money and WILL NOT… Full Review ▶
The location, the people, the facilities...everything is great...BUT they don´t allow dogs! They only allow cats..and even if the dog is smaller than the cat, still can´t have it. That will be my solo reason for leaving when the lease is… Full Review ▶
I love Merritt River. The apartments are really nice, the office staff is great, and the community is the best I have ever lived in. I definatley reccomend this property. Full Review ▶

From a quick glance, these apartments seem like they would make a decent place to live. After living here for almost a year now, I can say the experience has been far from decent. Of the features listed in their brochure… Full Review ▶
