Awful place. The apartment I was in had flies, cockroaches, spiders, all kinds of yucky stuff. I only lived there for the summer because I had no other choice. Heavily regretted not checking out what others think of the place first... Guys, please listen to all the awful reviews on this apartment complex, it is really accurate and I agree!

    My experience seems to differ from everyone else. I would say this place is decent for the price you pay. When I first moved in, September of 2020, the place looked trashy, the outside walls peeling paint and the inside walls were lathered with paint. Though it's not the foundation that matters, it's how you decorate, so this did not phase me. This location is livable. Pros: - This place is only a block from Trader Joes and practically right next to UC Davis so accessibility is amazing. That's one thing I will miss about this place. - Also very close to the freeway - Change in management, whenever I had a complaint about something being broken, they would fix it within a week, very nice guy though I forget his name. Offer him cold water bottles if you see him cuz he's a GOAT - A/C is great if you have it in your room - sink food disposal Cons: - Davis is known for being hot, and it sucked that there was only an A/C unit in one of the two bedrooms, and one in the living room. Just keep that in mind, as your PG&E bill might… See More>

      I never write reviews but I need to warn people about this place. Its genuinely horrible. For several months they do extremely loud obnoxious construction right outside all of our walls, and it starts at 8am waking everybody up. I have to wear noise-cancelling headphones when I'm in the apartment, the walls shake so much some of our paintings have fallen. And the management gave us NO warning about this when we moved in. Its genuinely unlivable here. Not to mention they randomly replaced our door and left cracks in our wall insulation that they still haven't fixed. Its nearly impossible to get ahold of the management cause they are never in the office and never answer the phone. Also they have a pool but dont even open it until july and august, it's just used to attract people. Literally any bad thing you could imagine about an apartment complex exists here.

        The only good things about this place are they allow dogs and are close to campus. Everything else is livable but barely so. The office is never open, the laundry is quarter only and there is no change machine. Once I went into the laundry room and one of the washers had been ripped away from the wall and had the panel for the coin box shredded open. This is solid metal shredded like it was foil or something. If you have a maintenance request be prepared to wait at least a week if not a month. My first 6 months there the electricity didn't work in half the apartment. And they blamed us for "having to much plugged in" which we a) didn't and b) it was a different circuit anyway. When the light in out bathroom burned out it took over a week for them to fix it and then they left the mercury bulb in the bathroom trash. When confronted with the fact they left toxic waste improperly disposed of I was told "oh sorry I forgot it". It was that's not forgetting, that's throwing away. Speaking of the bathroom, ours rained! Isn't that fun? Yes we… See More>

          Rented a two bedroom apartment for UC Davis students Sept 1, 2020. The family of my stepdaughter saw the apartment first and said "this is so disgusting, nobody should live there", they rented a Lexington apartment instead. Now for the $500 security deposit, Wake Forest won't give it back. I'm going through legal channels to get my security deposit back. This is the worst place in Davis. DO NOT RENT FROM TEHEM!

            The apartment experience overall has been okay. Staff never seem to be in the office even when their hours say they should be (when I have checked). They do not provide good information about key details about the apartment complex, and when told this, they refuse to acknowledge it.

              Okay, I just left a review on yelp, and felt that I needed to post on here, too. EVERY bad thing that has been said about this place-- it doesn't do any justice about how bad it really it is. Rating this piece of ---- place one star would be giving it far, far, far too much credit. First, I would HIGHLY recommend being homeless than staying here. I swear to God this is a fact. Being homeless (and PAYING an overly beyond belief price) and living in these apartments is no difference. Second, the landlord is incompetent, rude, absent, self centered/absorbent, feels entitled to the world, and if you looked up the word "-----" in the dictionary, there would be a giant photo of her horse face. Just her voice will make you scream. Third, the apartments are old and the walls are thin; you hear EVERYTHING. Do yourself a favor and NEVER consider this place. It's not a mystery why this apartment complex is domed the "worst place to stay in Davis." I know, you'll thank me later.

                I usually don't write reviews or anything but I just had to for this place. I have been staying here for about 5 months and I cannot wait to get out. Heres the story that just did it for me. I went home for the weekend and the management decided to install AC inside my room without notice. The worse part was, they decided to sand down their BAD installation and got dust literally EVERYWHERE. There is a thick layer of dust on all my stuff. They did not bother to cover ANY of my furnitures and just left it as is. Whatever you do, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. They need to seriously replace their management. They have no respect for others properties.

                  Unless you are trailer trash, you will hate this place

                  This place is absolutely distinguishing (as another reviewer had said)! There is absolutely NO reason for anyone with a $400-500 limit for rent to move in here. This place smells like shet, and everything in there is falling apart. In the two weeks I've lived here (YES, you heard me TWO) I was flabbergast. The place was horribly designed, and I think I detect traces amount of MERCURY in the paint (which was hastily splashed onto the walls). Cheap, and totally uncaring for tenants health. The kitchen sink and the bathrooms never have hot enough water, and the bath tub and toilet is disgustingly dirty even after huge amount if cleaning/disinfecting. Oh, and our AC did not work once since I moved in, complained day one, and was still not fixed when I moved out. The room I lived in smelled SO bad, that even after THREE air fresheners it was still shetty smelling. Oh, and ALL my clothes/stuff that had ever been in that room needs to be washed/cleaned, because I can't get that nasty smell off it. And now, for the neighbors. While generally some are pretty nice, most are inconsiderate of other tenants. After several complains to the office,… See More>

                    Honest Analysis of Wake Forest

                    My college roommate and I lived in Wake Forest for 4 years, so we have been through the thick and thin of Wake Forest. What you've heard from other tenants the good and the bad are both true. Let me begin: 1. Upon moving in the Apartment was not cleaned when they said it would be. Notified management and it was taken care of. Inconvenience yes but things happen. 2. Appliances are older and yes the walls are quickly painted over...even the mold 3. Most people who stay (like my roommate and I) usually do so because of how close it is to Davis. Its literally is two blocks from campus and management is highly aware of young sophmores needing a place to stay 4. There have been a total of 4 different managers since I have been there and quite possible that there is a different one now. 5. Did not have too many problems with maintenance (or at least what you would expect from such an old apt. When there was an issue like our sink flooding the bathroom and messing up all of my hair appliances, they sent someone out to fix it immediately, however, I was not compensated for my… See More>

                        hmm

                        1st time living in an apartment and lets say its not good. it might be cheap but everything is old, like the carpet is dirty, the wall is just quickly painted over, so u can still see the tape that used to be on the wall. also sliding doors always break or get stuck. dont make me start on the bathroom...ew..ew..ew, never knew davis water or maybe is just this apartment, the water turn orange like on sink and bathtub. then there's the easily hearing of noise, u can hear people coming and going on the stairs, even can hear your neighbor cuz the walls arent thick, especially when both of you guys have windows open. so i can hear my neighbors laugh out loud, etc. the only thing that is good, wake forest apartment got its convient of being so close to the campus, 5-10 minutes biking and two bus lines, C and B , the bus stop right across the street.

                          Disgusting

                          I thought all the bad reviews were from angry ex-tenants, then I actually had to live there. Everything you hear is true. This place is by far the worst place I have ever seen. The editors of Daviswiki say it is considered to be "the worst apartment complex in Davis." Avoid this travesty and move in elsewhere. The stress from the environment alone will severely affect your studies and risk your health. If you do visit, check out the cracked floor joist right above the laundry room. It is exemplary of everything else you can expect living there.

                            I miss Tina! She was a great manager, and yes she did live there. Her replacement is not all that great, but maintenance does get done. Jon Berkeley management has been much better than the past company. Overall, the complex is old and something is always broken and rent is too high for such an old place (plus you have to buy a parking permit). But, it is only a 5-10 min ride to campus, and if you don't bike the bus drops you off by your front door! That might be the only good thing about this place.

                              Why hasn't this place been condemned?

                              I actually could see the cars parked below my apartment through the bathroom floor. It smells like mildew, carpets are so old and smelly. Don't bother asking for a maintenance request, if they show up at all it will be half done.<br><br>Believe me there is better out there.

                                My name is Tina and I am the manager for Wake Forest Apartments. I would like to start by informing anyone and everyone that Wake Forest is now managed by Jon Berkley Management Co. A local management company who has been in business for more than a decade and is more than ready to make changes. Now I know Wake has had it share of problems with maintenance, managers, etc.. but I am happy to inform you that as the on site manager and the new management company my job and goal is reform Wake Forest by having full time maintenance staff and someone in the office during office hours, making myself more available to my residents. I ask that you give Wake Forest and myself a chance. I notice some of the comments were about the parking. We are located just 2 blocks from the campus and everyone knows how diffucult it is to find parking. We have a large parking lot located behind our complex with plenty of parking, and you only get towed if you don't have a parking permit or you park in another residents parking place which only… See More>

                                  When we moved in, the apartment was not ready for us, the manager quit, there was no real lock on the door, the place was dirty like a garbage dumpster, and so on. Many things were broken or missing, and even the maintenance guy said it was one of the worst he had ever seen, he eventually quit with all the problems. They do construction and things of the sort at around 8am, very loud with jackhammers and what not. These few weeks, you get hot water every few days, the rest you have to shower at other people's places. We asked for a prorated discount because in the end, they never got the apartment ready for us (cleaned), and the NEW manager lady said she would give us a concession, found out the owner wouldn't let her and said he would take care of it, we asked every month for 6 months, now the manager says the owner will deal with it when we move out... and we have records showing that we couldn't move in because of the condition for about 3 weeks. <br>When they painted the place, they painted right over all the dirt, there was a… See More>

                                        OK for the price and the location. The aprtments are getting old and it shows. Parking on the street is a nightmare. You can buy a parking spot in the parking lot, but sometimes other people park in it. And towards the end of my stay there, they didn't have a towing company. There are no AC vents in the bedrooms(I lived in a townhouse) and that is a big problem in summer. The manager was replaced every two months and was usually not in the office.

All those comments before mine are right on target. Rats, ants, bad management, no "sure" parking (cuz' they don't tow at 12 at night, cuz they sleeeeppp and won't bother to answer your request)....just FILTH. The carpets are smelly, gross bathrooms, the windows are those metal sliding, moldy types, so thin I used to hear my neighbors' girlfriend moaning...basically you hear everything your neighbors do.<br><br>Maybe as a last resort...or if your boyfriend/girlfriend live there and offers a shag (so you'd block out the rest of the noises), then you should stay.

                                                They use the Davis model lease, which stipulates that the OWNER is to assume all painting costs. Instead, they take it out of your lease at the end of the year. $130 x 80 apartments means 10,000 dollars they can keep per year. Keep you and your friends out of here!
