The apartments are lazy and cheap. They can't even replace a treadmill in the gym. During the summer one pool is always broke and closed down. They won't even tell you who manages the apartments so you can go over the… Full Review ▶

I lived here for 2 years, within those 2 years I had nothing but problems with the company. The housing rent is low, and so are some of the neighbors. The location of this apartment complex is located near major highways… Full Review ▶

I was unaware of apartmentratings.com until another apartment complex encouraged me to use it as a tool for rental evaluations. Why wasn't this offered by crossroads? Was it because they knew of all the negative postings?? I was fortunate and smart… Full Review ▶

The management/customer service was poor and that is being generous. The price is low, but you do not get your money???s worth. Service is bad, the walls are paper thin and management never followed through with promises.

Worst yet, I was warned… Full Review ▶


For the price, I guess it is decent. It is one of the cheapest complexes in St. Andrews, and it shows it. I do not feel safe or comfortable here, and ideally I'd be living elsewhere. Some thoughts:

1. There are a… Full Review ▶
