My wife and I have lived at Monroe Gardens for over 3 years. We were content. However the new management company is a joke. They put a young person in charge who doesn't care about anything. Two of our neighbors are… Full Review ▶

The apartment complex is terrible. Granite the size of the apartments are nice, they are very outdated. The windows let cold air through in the winter due to the metal frames. Sometimes you wake up with ice on the frames of… Full Review ▶

The manager has no education and you can tell. The other girl in there must have an education because she is always doing her homework. Its no wonder nothing gets done around this place. Oh, except maybe the grass by each… Full Review ▶

First of all lets us start how unfriendly the staff is. I do not know how the property owner hires such unfriendly,unqualified, basically sick, person to work as a manger. I truly believe they have some kind of mental issue. Discrimination… Full Review ▶

The Office Manager is rude and hateful. The other girl in the office was sort of friendly but I think she has to do all the work. They don't respond to things needing fixed. Maint. workers are rude and act like… Full Review ▶

The Grounds are nothing like you have ever seen before at an apartment complex. It is like a small park on the inside. I fell very safe here and the tenants here are great people to have as neighbor's. The office… Full Review ▶

I lived in this apartment complex for seven years and absolutely loved it! Even though it's a very large complex, you always felt like you had your own place once you got inside. The apartments are quite roomy! I personally never… Full Review ▶

All I was trying to do was complete the application process. I don't use credit so the landlady asked for additional information, which I didn't mind doing. This is not a new condition for me, but it is usually worth a… Full Review ▶

I have lived at Monroe Garden Apartments
since 1984. The present management took over in May of 1984 two months after I moved

They are rude and don't really care for the tenants. They are very slow to fix things. I think they care more for their flowers then the tenants. Full Review ▶

For the same price, you can get much better. Although the apartments are nice, the management is so terrible that it is totally not even worth renting.

The landlady was very rude to me and would not allow me the… Full Review ▶
