This isn't a great place, but we've stayed here 3 years for the convenience of the location. We've made it work. The elevator almost always works now, and some of our noisy neighbors moved out. We had a fruit fly issue… Full Review ▶

These apartments have several problems. The most bothersome is the noise level. It is above a restaurant that stays open until 4:00 AM, and people are in the parking lot until this time making noise. This restaurant also has whirring exhaust… Full Review ▶

2) The elevator is always broken. Just hope it… Full Review ▶
