I have lived here for 3 years and my experience has been wonderful. Living here has been my best rental experience to date. The entire staff is very welcoming and makes you feel like family. My child loves hanging out in… Full Review ▶
Management will not help you with any unruly/noisy neighbors. Noise is a serious problem at this complex. Full Review ▶
My husband and I moved from Massachusetts to Illinois in July 2008 and chose Woodlake. The place was nice, the prices were lower than what we'd been paying and the people seemed very nice. Shortly after we moved in, the management… Full Review ▶

Since I moved in a few years ago, things have gotten better. Just be sure to ask about the extra things you need to pay for aside from your rent. Full Review ▶
I have lived in Woodlake for 3 years, and am only leaving because I am buying a house. We have a corner top floor Woodlyn (the most expensive in the complex) so perhaps other "normal" apartments are worse. Having lived in… Full Review ▶
Don't be fulled by the Woodlake Apartment's "charming" rental guides showing their only good apartment at their site. If you decide to rent here, don't be suprised when they tell you one thing and then do something else. Do not expect… Full Review ▶
When touring the complex, my fiancee and I thought it was very nice and that the management was very interested in what we thought. However, once we signed the lease they didn't seem to care much at all. Maintenance is fine… Full Review ▶
I've lived here a little over a year. Really Great- The apartment is beautiful- vaulted ceilings, track lighting, fireplace, balcony view, newer. I love having my own staircase and entrance. The appliances are newer and work great. If they don't, maintenance… Full Review ▶
Moving from out of state, I went on the recommendation of a realtor assigned to us by my employer's relocation department (bad idea). Once you add in water/sewer/garbage the rent is close to $1400 a month (including pet rent) for the… Full Review ▶

Building nice and clean.
Management very very nice, maintaince staff little slow but not bad.
Only 1 drawback here, walls are very thin so big heating bill.
Snow gets cleaned in time, very safe… Full Review ▶
Woodlake is overpriced for what you get. Amli's rent is cheaper and you get so much more like an indoor pool and sauna. Many of the dog owner's do not clean up after their pets and it is like walking through… Full Review ▶
I lived at Woodlake for 14 months. Don't waste your money! They look much nicer than they are. Our apartment had no isulation - my gas bill was almost $200 a month during the winter months. We kept the temp at… Full Review ▶
Hi, I used to work in the office, lived here and transfered to another community. The main complaint there is noise. And the office staff does have a three strike rule. Then eviction or non renewal. The cause of the noise....… Full Review ▶

I enjoy living here over the other communities in the area for a few reasons. The places are new, and kept up well. As far as staff goes, managers have changed (a couple times) and there is a real nice buncha… Full Review ▶
The staff at Woodlake Apartments are friendly and helpful. The apartments are lovely, like new, and very clean. Best we have seen.
HOWEVER, the cheapskates who constructed this complex as recently as five years ago did not put one bit of… Full Review ▶
Don,t even bother to look into this apartment. Don't go by the face of the building or surrounding. Management will make your life hell. I live here for 12 months and I couldnt wait to get out.

The apartments are nice. Nothing special, but clean and new. The walls are a little thin, but luckily our neighbors are not that noisy. The big problem that we have with them now is that if you need to break your… Full Review ▶
I think this place is pretty nice. I used this website to pick apts. I've had my fair share of maint problems. A few gas leaks, an apt above me had a water pipe break a week after I moved in.… Full Review ▶
I would mostly agree with the other comments on this board. The staff definitely leaves something to be desired, they do change frequently, and they aren´t exactly sharp and helpful. But in the year and a half my husband and I… Full Review ▶
Woodlake is a quiet community. The staff is very courteous and quick to help. The apartments are great. The buildings are like brand new. I have lived here for almost four years only two months after the apartments were built. It?s… Full Review ▶

After reading some of the other comments posted here, I thought I might add a little insight for those who may be looking to move here. We´ll start with the good: The floor plan is great, with a huge bathroom and… Full Review ▶
Let me clarify something. The apartment itself is great. It?s new, clean, and the grounds are well kept. It is the management that is like something out of the Twilight Zone. I moved back in June for a business relocation and… Full Review ▶
This place is not worth the money, I have lived there for the past 9 months and will not renew my lease. The office staff changes frequently and the level of knowledge is pathetic.

Just got back from viewing this place and two words describe the leasing agent; STUPID and RUDE. The person that was apprently "helping" us was very rude, constantly butting in, pressuring us to lease, and just plain misinformed. She lacked the… Full Review ▶
I really like the floorplans. My apt is really nice, but the people around here are snobs and unfriendly. Parking is bad after 5. The construction is terrible. Fitness facitlity is not bad. Maint is helpful.

I have lived at Woodlake for 1 1/2 years and chose it after looking at 5 other luxury apartment complexes. This one was, by far, the best. Apartments are good sized with various floorplans available. I use the fitness center and… Full Review ▶
