Lived here two years ago, but received a bill recently saying I did not pay the final statement when I moved out! I would need to show the receipt otherwise I need to pay it again! Ridiculously! Full Review ▶

Now Marquis Midtown West: Location, grounds, and cost are all fine. But it is 100% not worth it. Management and maintenance are unreliable, unhelpful, and don t accept responsibility for their mistakes. When I arrived on move-in day (with a moving… Full Review ▶

Pay a lot get very little. It's raining inside our apartment. The windows are just decoration. Service requests take a month. Paying over $1200 for noisy dogs, and dog poop everywhere, and a overly dramatic ghetto manager that loudly promises the… Full Review ▶

These apartments are old and falling apart! Multiple leaks in windows, cracks in walls, rusty faucets & appliances, mismatched tiles, and molding wallpaper. They change the carpet every 4-5 years! Surprisingly, they still wanted to raise the rent $100 when it… Full Review ▶

This place screws you over, plain and simple. I've never had an apartment charge me $25 for cleaning and $45 for cleaning the carpet when I moved out! Especially, after I did a thorough cleaning job and there was absolutely NOTHING… Full Review ▶

The apartment is in general very nice place, as you can see from other reviews. It is clean, safe, and quiet. There is only one problem: the utility bill is rocket high! Before I moved in the manager told me the… Full Review ▶

I have lived in Defoor for 2 years now, and all I can say after reading the negative reviews are that something must have changed since we moved in. The grounds are always clean, there is enough parking for visitors (unless… Full Review ▶

One of the reasons I've stayed with this complex is because of the distance from Georgia Tech. Being a graduate student, it's well worth living a few miles off campus and having a place of my own. So let me give… Full Review ▶

This has to be the most poorly managed complex I have ever lived in. The grounds are nothing special at all. Most apartments have very nice landscaping. The landscaping here looks as if it hasn't be touched in years. There is… Full Review ▶

Management sucks! Posted my rent check to the wrong and threatned eviction. Never returned my phone calls when I tried resolving it by showing my bank statement SHOWING the check being cleared!

Maintenence doesn't do squat. Leaky roofs and dog crap everywhere!
