I lived in Lakewood for 3 years - I never had any problems. Whenever any minor maintenance was needed, it was usually taken care of the same day. The office staff and maintenance team are terrific, they make you feel at… Full Review ▶

I have never had any real problems living at Lakewood, but I don't feel the steps are very safe. They are made of concrete and held up in wooden frames. The steps are constantly cracking. Also, when it's icy outside, they… Full Review ▶

Good Luck if you move here. The mantainence people are just straight rude and will give you the evil eye all the time. If something messes up in your apartment, all I can say is good luck with getting that fixed.… Full Review ▶

I have lived here for 15 years...............for one the apartments have a more open space plan than the newer models. True they are only 2 bedrooms, but it has worked for me just fine. Yes the majority of tenants are military,… Full Review ▶

Lakewood Management is the worse...depending on who you are, they will stalk your apartment and your children and have their maintenance employees secretly spy on you. They know when someone comes to visit or "assume" that someone lives with you because… Full Review ▶

Any positive review posted on behalf of Lakewood is either Staff generated or some poor guy who received 100 bucks off his rent to post it. Myself and my wife moved out about 3 years ago and believe me when I… Full Review ▶

Not very high quality but also one of the cheapest apartments in the area. My only significant complaint is with the staff who were, with only a few exceptions, difficult to work with and not very helpful. Full Review ▶
