The office staff is very friendly and always willing to help. The maintenance staff of which I met is also very friendly. The common areas are kept up for the most part. Elevators and Trash areas become very dirty throughout the… Full Review ▶

It has been okay. I do like the gathering parties that the office staff put together to get the residence out and meet each other. I do not appreciate this survey having me to complete 200 words before the "FINISH" button… Full Review ▶

An affordable apartment complex in the downtown area. Staff are courteous and helpful, and the building is safe and features clean apartments with high ceilings and an urban style. The fitness center could, however, use an update. Overall it is a… Full Review ▶

Rent is much higher at neighboring communities, so I don't expecct to have stainless steel appliances. But I do wish the white carpet would be replaced along with the counter tops. The view from my unit is why I signed the… Full Review ▶

Overall my experience has been positive. I have enjoyed the physical location of the building however I have had complaints as previously stated. Also, we were told there was on-site security but have yet to see a single security officer.. Full Review ▶

Really lovely office ladies. Otherwise I spend most of my time here in my apartment, sexual harassment in the elevator and the elevator cleanliness itself could be improved. I'm just sick of being hit on, and I'm not putting myself out… Full Review ▶

The absolute worst management I have ever had, or heard of, when leasing apartments. It takes over two weeks to replace light bulbs that can only be accessed with a ladder due to the nice, but high ceilings. The laundry services… Full Review ▶

This is the worst place to live downtown. The management is very unprofessional. It took over a week for the lights in my apartment to be changed when the "Maintenance" is always around. I have noisy neighbors on both sides of… Full Review ▶

Might as well consider your deposit a lost cause. So unorganized they do not even know how much you paid, or how to pay it back. Good news is you could destroy your apartment and they probably wont charge you any… Full Review ▶

You get what you pay for with the "Globe". Rent may be cheep but your heating bills come winter make up for that your average bill will be about $125 just to keep the temp at 70 degrees. The Staff uses… Full Review ▶

I have lived here for over 2 years now, and the situation in this apartment community is getting worse and worse. Maintenance is getting very bad. There are always major things broken. Somehow, whenever there is a power outage, the elevator… Full Review ▶

This apartment advertises a gated, secure parking lot. The gate stopped working a few months ago, so they just opened the gates and turned them off. Now they have removed the gates. It is so much fun hunting for a parking… Full Review ▶

Dear Prospective Tenant: You may be enticed by the historic character of the Globe Apartments, with the high ceilings and brick construction adding to the charming appeal of "downtown living." Yet, living at the Globe is anything but charming. To be… Full Review ▶

Our experience with The Globe started out poorly from the very beginning. It took until the last day of my previous lease to get our apartment. This only occurred as a result of a sit-in we held to make sure the… Full Review ▶

The Globe Apartments are nice, but there are some problems around here that make it hard to live here sometimes. One big problem is security. People who live here and guests have no regard for the property. People break things all… Full Review ▶
