I am a fairly new tenant. When I arrived in the summer, the place was quiet and fairly enjoyable. My neighbors who are older are friendly and quiet. One complaint was the apartment was FILTHY upon moving in. I don't think… Full Review ▶

Whatever you do don't move here! Walls are paper thin and you can hear all your neighbors and the plumbing. The faucets leak and drains get clogged super easy. I use draino about once a month. Maintenance can fix basic things… Full Review ▶

Positives: -Pet friendly. -Onsite swimming pool and gym. Negatives: -Parking. You won't always be able to park near your building. -Poor cell reception in apartments due to location. Be prepared to step outside onto your porch to make calls. Imagine that… Full Review ▶

I moved into these apartments in December 2011. I spent the first six months at one, and then the next year in a larger apartment. My neighbors were awful. Smoking inside (cigs and pot), aggressive dogs, can't park near my building… Full Review ▶

DON'T move here, we are trying to get rid of our lease, but they charged us two late fees, when they shouldn't have. The people above us had to things bust, and ruin our walls and ceilings, and they didn't fix… Full Review ▶

DON'T DO IT! The apartments are very old. They are trying to upgrade some of them, BUT don't sign the lease until you see the one you are being given. The apartment that is set up for showing is nothing like… Full Review ▶

Apartment has improved by a good amount since the new management came but have also become very very expensive. Rates are more than $ 900 for 2 Bedroom. Wow, there are better deals in town so look around. Be careful by… Full Review ▶

The apartments are in great shape, very spacious, and well-insulated. The staff are incredibly friendly and the maintenance people are great. Usually a maintenance request will be completed within 24 hours. It is very quiet here--if you are going to throw… Full Review ▶

Windsor hills is a fabulous apartment complex! I have lived here for over two years and have been very satisfied. Everyone in the office is extremely nice and helpful. They always offer fun things for residents like ice cream socials, pizza… Full Review ▶

Parking: Parking is pretty bad around here. Only certain apartments have reserved parking spaces and it's pretty bad after 5pm. Noise: Don't even think about having a speakers with the base. It penetrates the wall to well and only the base.… Full Review ▶

I loved living here. Windsor Hills has a friendly staff, the grounds are kept well, and it is not as noisy as most apartments in Blacksburg. I felt safe here and got along great with my neighbors. The only things I… Full Review ▶

I've lived here since July 2010. I've requested maintenance twice--once for the communal dryer and once when a garbage disposal from another apartment backed up into my tub (it was way after-hours). Maintenance was on it and took care of both… Full Review ▶

This place has a bunch of nazis for staff members. I believe they are out to get me for whatever reason. I had my two dogs at the dog park, following one around with a bag while pooping and picked it… Full Review ▶

We lived here for a year and enjoyed it. There are a lot of dogs around. That may be fun for some; an annoyance for others. It was kind of creepy during the winter when people would not clean up after… Full Review ▶

Plenty of free parking so no worries about being towed or only having one spot for three people (as is the case in one of the places I lived previously). Being farther away from campus a lot of the residents are… Full Review ▶

I'll keep this concise: 1. The Windsor Hills grounds are quiet, well-maintained, and well-suited for graduate student living. 2. The apartments have similar layouts to other properties in Blacksburg, but from my experience, this community has the best value from a… Full Review ▶

Caters strictly to college students and dogs! They allow dogs to run without a leash and MOST residents do NOT pick up after their dogs. Most residents are beer drinking college kids. The view is magnificent but, otherwise, these apartments are… Full Review ▶

The apartment as such was fine. But the facilities were old and broke down regularly.Although the staff fixed it, it got charged to our account for no fault of ours. Also, there were LOADS of dogs and LOADS of poop on… Full Review ▶

The buildings are old and need to be renovated. Parking is adequate and the grounds are fine minus the dog poop. The road in windsor hills needs to be repaved unless you enjoy realigning your tires every week. Maintenance is ok… Full Review ▶

This is one of the worst apartments I've ever lived at. The new management has decided that they want to appeal to college students. So, they allow all kinds of noise at all hours of the night. I have complained about… Full Review ▶

I've lived at Windsor Hills for over two years (coming from two other Blacksburg communities: FoxRidge and a property operated by Price Real Estate). The two previous experiences left much to be desired, especially Price. FoxRidge wasn't terrible....I just didn't like… Full Review ▶

First of all, the apartment manager is a complete b$tch and talks to you like you are 5 years old. She is condescending and deceitful. She is in her mid to late 20's and thinks she knows how to run an… Full Review ▶

I agree with people that says it's OK. No noise at all & good maintainance service! (I wonder about the above comments), but the buildings are very old (same with many communities in blacksburg); Far from university & bus show-up interval… Full Review ▶

Windsor Hills is ok. The location is great, the mountain views are beautiful, the pool is nice enough (and finally they started issuing pool passes so non-residents can't sneak in any more). The layouts of the apartments are fine, and there… Full Review ▶

My 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment gets the job done, but certainly is nothing special. I would guess that these apartments were built in the 1970's at the latest, and they certainly appear accordingly, especially in the bathroom and the kitchen. My roommate… Full Review ▶

Having read most of these reviews, it seems obvious that many of the people brought a bad experience upon themselves. The community is well-managed, and most certainly does have a gym. Also, the maintenance team has responded quickly to all of… Full Review ▶

A nice apartment, very pretty views and quiet area without the normal student traffic of Blacksburg. However, if you needed a manager for anything good luck! The office was often just closed during the day. Also, we never used the pool… Full Review ▶
