The rates are decent. Count on your car getting several dings if you leave it in the parking lots. You'll likely have neighbors who keep unusual hours and the walls are thin. They'll gouge you when you go to move out,… Full Review ▶

The apartments are cheap and poorly acoustically insulated. They will always show you an apartment on the ground floor, as apartments higher get road noise from both IH-35 (which will be your address) and Ben White. The office staff is nice… Full Review ▶
