I chose this apartment because my brother lived here before me, so I knew that they were reasonably priced and weren't sketchy. So far, rainier has been helpful and thorough with everything-- I haven't had any trouble, and the office people… Full Review ▶

After hearing from friends that oak park I chose to live here. The location is safe, generally quiet and very convenient for the bus system for UT. Staff is kind and willing to work with you on problems and maintenance is… Full Review ▶

We've been living here since August 2013 and there is nothing to complain about so far. And when we renewed early, we got to extend our rental rate until 2015. This was quite valuable to us because we are students. When… Full Review ▶

I was shocked to see such low reviews for Oak Park! I've lived here for almost two and a half years, and I've very much enjoyed it. Maintenance is usually very prompt and thorough; management has definitely improved since when I… Full Review ▶

I don't usually review things, but I feel downright obliged to in this instance if not simply because the majority of negative reviews on this site almost deterred me completely from securing an apartment in Oak Park with Rainer Management. I… Full Review ▶

I want to be fair about my review, as obviously not everyone has the same experiences here. I moved here in August of 2011. When we checked out the apartments, we really liked the location and decided to sign a pre-lease,… Full Review ▶

The Oak apartments are awful. I've been living here for a semester and I have huge problems with them. They don't seem to care about it. My house has been full with gigantic rats for 3 month and still they didn't… Full Review ▶

Yes, it's true. I was the first person to live in Apartment 205. i watched the apartments being built and signed up for a one bedroom. I left in 1974 when I graduated and moved to Dallas. Some hot babes lived… Full Review ▶

I'll be nice and start with the good: - Good location, next to restaurant/shops and close to UT. Across the street is a nice convenience store too. - The pool isn't bad, has a grill and nice trees. - Quiet, respectful… Full Review ▶

Drunks start raising hell on the balconies around 2:30 am most weekend nights during the school year. If you're in a first floor unit, you'll hear every step the upstairs neighbors take. When the guy upstairs has friends over it feels… Full Review ▶

My apartment is ok; it's old and the construction sucked but the maintenance does what they can to keep it together. The maintenance team is very nice and attentative. The office staff are just rude. they gossip a lot and you… Full Review ▶

On November 12, 2009 they put a little note on every tenant's door that said: "Yelp us out!!! Give a positive review of us on yelp.com or apartmentratings.com & receive a free Amy's ice cream!!!" That's pretty lame, . Full Review ▶

I've been living in Oak Park for a little over a year now, and most of the complaints about the complex are minimal. The apartments are quite old, which leads to repairs every so often. I've had to have my sink… Full Review ▶

Original Review: I've lived at this complex for over a year now. When I first moved in, it was all about the location. Convenience store and (now) auto repair shop turned organic/vegan restaurant right next door. The rest of Hyde Park… Full Review ▶

I lived here from June 2008 until July 2009. The price of this apartment is decent for its location and the size of the floor plan. That, however, is where the positives end. Here are the negatives: - Maintenance is incredibly… Full Review ▶

Have lived here now for three years. Apartments are standard 70s-80s garbage. Insulation is ok so cooling bill isn't outrageous. Be careful when seeing show units. They often have features not available in the unit you will move into. This really… Full Review ▶

I lived there for 3 years and really loved it. My apartment was a corner unit on the third floor with a lot of light. I watched thunderstorms and ice storms on my balcony. Management was really nice. It changed hands… Full Review ▶

Read your lease people!!! Ranier cannot make changes to the lease contract until the contract is up. If they want to charge residents for utilities they have to wait until your contract is up for renewal before amending it. I'm not… Full Review ▶

By far, the worst place I have ever lived, and thats my fault for reading the terrible reviews before I moved and STILL gave it a chance. I should have known from the beginning how awful of an experience I was… Full Review ▶

Something in the boiler broke on Saturday 12/22/07, but they say that they can't fix it until Monday! Why not? Because they, I assume, are unwilling to pay an outside plumber to take care of it sooner. This is a code… Full Review ▶

At first the staff was great, they were so nice and seemed really helpful, probably because they were only collecting my rent. The entire year we only had a few complaints: one about a huge hole behind the mirror in the… Full Review ▶

I moved here because it was close to my work and I had lived in Hyde Park before and liked the area. The bedrooms were pretty big, and there were 2 walk-in closets one bedroom, and 3 walk-in closets in the… Full Review ▶

There are many pluses to living here: our apt. is sunny with a separate kitchen (no galley kitchen!) and fabulous closets. The location is near many of our favorite Hyde Park spots and two grocery stores are within walking distance. There… Full Review ▶

The main reasons I decided to leave Oak Park had to do with rent and the management.

The rent went up a lot to renew leases. Also, if you resigned the lease in the past, you got deals like 1/2 off… Full Review ▶

I didn't really want to move. The apartments were in generally good condition for their age, and the location is great if you want to live north of downtown.

But the place has a couple of fatal flaws when you consider how… Full Review ▶

I lived in a 2-bed, 1.5 bath townhouse and don't have many complaints.

The parking is great - it gets kind of full after midnight but I still didn't have to walk far to get to my apartment. I only saw… Full Review ▶

My apartment faces Duval street and I live in a 1/1 townhouse with my husband. It's really crowded for two people. It's 725 square feet but a lot of that is wasted on the stair case. It's been really loud since… Full Review ▶

I've been in two different apartments while living at Oak Park.

I renewed my lease but switched apartments for two main reasons. The roof was leaking in several areas, which were never fixed for the year I was there (I had notified… Full Review ▶

Nice place to live, but you must be careful when you move out. We cleaned our apartment (even repainting the rooms) and we were still charged cleaning fees. When asked, the maintenance person said that we were charged to wipe down… Full Review ▶

I've lived here 2 years and I would want to stay until I graduate in Dec but the complex has NO move out dates in Dec or any other months than May and July. Maintenance takes forever but other than that… Full Review ▶

Oak Parks is on the older side, so some issues were to be expected. The paint on our walls were like 7 layers thick, I suppose they repaint the walls everytime someone moves out.

Maintence was a big hit or miss as… Full Review ▶

they have the stupidest rules and get you in all the fees, fees, fees for the littlest thing. Were prompt with fixing things in the beginning but that trend quickly faded. I like the… Full Review ▶

I lived here for two years, and don´t have much to complain about. Office staff were friendly, and maintenance was always promptly taken care of, usually the next day. The pool was nice and clean 99.9% of the time (I lived… Full Review ▶

Nice apartment while your in college. Rent is high because of the location. Apartments are a bit old and they didn´t change out the carpet before we moved in. Pretty safe area and nice staff though. Full Review ▶

It´s true, the apartment is on the old side, but they are remodeling all of the apartments. We now have new blinds, new carpet, and a fresh coat of paint. Everytime we had a problem, it was fixed that day or… Full Review ▶

Good: friendly staff, repairs made by the next day if need be, close to campus, quiet, nice pool, close to downtown, close to 35, HUGE closets, nice landscaping, built-in bookcases, summer rent discounts

Bad: it´s old, the ceilings are not… Full Review ▶

The management does not care about anything other than your rent check. They have absolutely no communication or customer service skills. The complex appears to be on the verge of collapse in some places. I have had problems with my air… Full Review ▶

I would not recommend living here. I´ve had problems with everything: window leaks from the rain that can´t (or won´t) be fixed, heating and air conditioning problems, an uncaring office staff, stolen laundry and cars being broken into--all repeatedly. The walls… Full Review ▶
