    To save everyone time do not rent from here! The apartment is infested with roaches and this is something I noticed the day I moved in. The front desk staff is super rude!!!! I got harassed by two of my neighbors who both looked like thugs and I spoke with the office about it they told me they would handle it but never did. I contacted corporate never received a call back so I decided to move out because I felt uncomfortable in my own home.

      These are all old reviews. Despite the management attempt to replace older more vulnerable tenants with higher paying tenants and some paint, still the same old story in 2017. The property mgt company has there own family working at both the facility and the mgt company. They are all rude and condescending. As a professional I've never seen such rudeness in a facility. We all need a roof over our heads, decent people moved on, we will be also... good luck

        This place is noisy drama loud neighbors. Office staff not orginszied always makin g mistakes in lease forms whiting things out and rewriting over with pen and giving you copies say its the same form.. Not organized at all. Or considerate of residents safety or complains of other neighbors. Very noisey staff especially the head maintance guy has nothing better to do than to go around looking for things to tell the front desk. To report making it seem he doing his job. Very unprofessional. Just recently Theres been multiple car theft in the parking. Break inns into veichels. Front staff didn't say much or react. Staff is quick to turn things on you and disagree 28th making excusses when going in with a complain about a neighbors or safety concerns. I dont recommen this place at all. Awalys double check you lease and the pricing. I caught that they they were over charging me in the beginning. I double checked my lease and called them out on it and they called explain what happens and it was there mistake. Laundry rooms not safe had a load of laundry stolen from main laundry room. Half the dryers dont work.

          This complex is nothing but horrible things! My experience here over the past 2 years has been so aweful I almost dont know where to begin... The noise here is unbelievable. I have neighbors in this area that will be screaming at the top of their lungs from 12AM-4AM in the morning! There is no reason for this, and no matter how many times I have filed a noise complaint the issues were never looked at by the management. This has kept me up till the crack of dawn several times, I couldnt count the amount on two hands. The grounds are poorly kept, the pool is very dirty, half the grass is dead, and the rock beds are littered with cigarette butts and trash and are rarely picked up! They say they have a special "tri-star" security rating, but that rating is a security officer on a bike who is only around A FEW DAYS OUT OF THE WEEK. Seriously?! Not to mention there have been violent arguements in the rooms next to me, so much that the police have been called several times. Also my car was broken into 3 different times, and the management and security had no comment! It… See More>

            Sandstone Apartments, yes please come to this very luxurious property where the stench of Drugs fills the courtyards while apartments are running with roaches, also while you're staying here you will enjoy the bad pluming which will fill your tiny apartment with the stink of sewer and the loud domestic disputes and fights which are usually followed by police sirens, but don't be alarmed because with the rate that the police are at this property you will feel safe! and to top it all off this wonderful property is ran by an friendly staff all except their office manager who happens to be a fan of talking down to her tenants and has no manners, oh but to be fair its not until you happen to sign that lease ;) so come on over if this sounds like the place you would love to call home!

                  I have been living at Sandstone Apartments for 5 years now. Once in a while I like to read the reviews. I was shocked by some of the negative comments. I am a female who is concerned about safety. I chose Sandstone Apartment because I was recommended by a friend who lives here. It is the safest, cleanest complex I have ever been to. The maintenance staff are very serous about fixing "any situation" The management and staff are very friendly and maintain a safe environment. If you plan on "never" paying your rent or plan to break your lease before you even move in (like the other reviewer) then this place is not for you, and get serious about your obligations. If you are serious about a clean safe secure complex and pay your rent, I highly recommend staying here. Sandstone is not just an apartment complex, it's your home.

                    I have lived in Sandstone Apartments for 3 years now. This is by far the safest place I have ever lived while renting. The staff is extremely friendly. The grounds are very clean.. Management will go far and beyond the call of duty to ensure a safe and clean complex. I am not sure why anyone would not want to live hear.

                      I have lived here for 2 months now. I am willing to break my lease and pay the fee to leave early! The office staff is very nice excluding the manager Lisa. She is rude, interrupts while her tenants are trying to talk, and talks to you like a child. I do not want to give them anymore of my money. Plus my apartment was very dirty when I moved in and my a/c started leaking right when I moved in and it is supposedly fixed right now, just waiting for it to break again. I am realizing I can go elsewhere for the same price and live in a nicer apartment plus have a manager that actually cares and isn't a -----.

                        PLEASE look elsewhere, this place sucks. Pros: -Close to Mesa Community College -Sprinklers/Green Grass -Large bedroom (1br floor plan) that's about it. Cons: -Loud tenants -Get used to seeing the police there -6 people living in the 1 bedroom apartment near mine -Trash in parking lot = 3 flat tires -Parking spot far away from apartment -Dumpsters almost always overflowing, and occasionally saw people picking through trash. -Unsupervised children -Police helicopter overhead almost every night -Filthy laundry facilities -My a/c leaked for 2 months before finally getting repaired -Sink leaked after getting "fixed" -tiny kitchen cupboards -Oftentimes it was completely dark outside due to non-working outdoor lights -Leaf blowing/lawn mowing early in the morning -Very thin walls & floors. I always heard conversations in the apartment below mine. -Very inefficient- doors not sealing, etc. I kept the temp between 75-80 degrees and still paid around $100/month for electricity. For a 600sq.ft. apartment, that's ridiculous. -For what you get, the rent was over-priced Hope this helps.

                          this place is horrible the management is not experience and vindictive. I would never live in a slum hole like that again. there was noise early in the morning the police were always at the property. If you have any problems with this management company contact Arizona Multihousing Association- 602-224-0135 0r 602-296-6200. The manager smiles in your face but will try to do things that do not line up with fair housing.

                            I can't believe I've taken these reviews as fact on this website for so long. I moved in a little over a month ago and couldn't be happier. My one complaint would be that my parking spot isn't as close to my unit as it could be. The unit itself is awesome. Tons of storage and closet space throughout. My apartment is beautiful. Also this is the quietest apartment complex that I have ever lived in. Even Friday nights are peaceful, which I love since my job requires very long hours out in the heat. When I'm home I want to relax. The management is awesome. When I moved in my ac wasn't working. The crew immediately installed a window unit as they ordered a BRAND NEW unit for me, which was promptly installed. Along with the dual pane windows my apartment stays COLD and cheap to keep that way. Everything is soo well kept here! I have smelled marijuana some nights walking outside, although I don't partake, I don't see that as an issue, live and let live (mind you I'm from California where people smoke it everywhere). Thank you Sandstone for a fantastic apartment for a great… See More>

                              This was my very first apartment experience and I was pleased to see that the staff were caring and made me feel welcome. I felt safe in my apartment and it was relatively quiet. Maintenance staff is always reliable, and overall a great experience for me.

                                    First I have not seen drug use, and can count on one hand the number of times I have seen the police here. That being said I pretty much keep to my self. I don't often hear my neighbors through the wall/floors. I do hear and see many unsupervised children playing until long after dark. Many of the outlets have been painted over, including the GFCI in the bathroom. My kitchen is very small, and the "cabinets" do not offer enough storage for Pots and Pans and dishes, most of them are little deeper than a spice rack. Many of the doors are hanging loosely on the hinges, both the cabinets and room/apartment doors. The office staff for the most part are friendly, though ineffective. The maintenance staff are less effective than the office staff. If an appliance is not working, don't plan on it being repaired. The landscape is trimmed, but since we have been here some of the shrubs have gotten less attention lately than when we first moved in. Over all, not the WORST place in which one could live, but VERY FAR from ideal. So no I would not recommend… See More>

                                      In order for you to get a feel for the place, drive by weekend evenings. If you smoke marijuana or enjoy the smell that permeates into your apartment then this is a place for you. If you appreciate inoperable appliances, filth ridden laundry facilities and sub standard dwelling spaces then I do implore you to choose this location. Do you want your young children to learn the latest curse words then by all means reside here so the local riff-raf can convert your child into a menace. There are no alotted areas that are safe for the kids to play (please watch your children there is a pervert that stands in his window at dusk, commiting lewd acts upom himself through his thinly veiled porch, I caught him in the act, and it did not deter his actions). The make shift basketball court is definitely not suitable, nor safe for younger kids. The noises that are constant here are maddening, the walls are paper thin. I pray that you take more than one look before you consider living here. This is not a property that is well maintained and management is less than professional. Believe me if peace, quiet and… See More>

                                        I haven't lived here for very long at all and I cannot express how bad I would like to leave. I made a generic username because seeing as I still live here, I wouldn't put it past the management to do something about that in response to this review. The three women I've dealt with in the office are actually extremely kind. Its mainly the other tenants that I have to complain about. My very first night here, the crazy drunk next door decided to introduce herself, how nice (not). My apartment smells like cigarette smoke because the man living below me is a chain smoker. The overall quality inside the apartment is ridiculous. There is paint on the floor, inside door jambs and everywhere that should not be painted. I can't shut my bedroom door all the way or it will get stuck overnight, because they've painted all edges of the door and the doorway. I can't plug my microwave in the outlets in the kitchen or it will throw the breaker. It is a tiny, new generic microwave from Walmart and I've never heard of that being a problem. Noise levels suck. I can hear almost every conversation… See More>

                                            We lived here about a year, it was awful! Problems: 1. Roaches! We complained over and over and the managers first denied that there was a problem and then had an exterminator come twice, did absolutely nothing, the bugs remained! We ended up trashing our couches when we moved because we didn't want to risk bringing them to a new place. 2. So many crazies in this place! We loved laying in bed listening to our upstairs neighbors stomp around and scream at each other all night! And then there was the apartment across the sidewalk who had god knows how many people living there, including a possibly homeless woman who would stand in the walkway and stare into our apartment and come by in the middle of the night and ask to use the phone and then try to push her way into our apartment! 3.Parking sucked, I was pregnant when we lived here and it was fantastic to have to park on the other side of the complex after work and walk over in the summer! 4.We moved out a few days before our lease was up and went back. cleaned and took pictures. Well, management decided to charge us… See More>

                                                The manager is very rude and can get even worse when you have conflict with her. Some of the staff is worse. The pregnant agent is very unprofesional. Maintenance and the other agent are ok. My apartment had tons of roaches there are kids loud everywhere drunks and addicts and I heard the the staff does drugs. Not a place i want to be. They should drug test. it is and un safe place to live.

                                                  Manager provides lip service to get you off her back then doesn't do what she says she will. She prefers to keep the tenants that cause trouble (partying, fighting all hours of the night & preventing the good people from getting rest). Maybe drama is her thing. I prefer peace & quiet. Parking structures collapse. Police are here often due to drunks & druggies. Skip this option if at all possible. 6 months is way too long to be here.
