Colonial Garden Apartments
Resident · 2009 - 2011
My fiance and I have lived here for a year and a half. Overall, we love the location and have wonderful neighbors. Everyone is very friendly and looks out for each other. The manager is a bit grumpy but ultimately gets the job done in a timely manner. Pros: HUGE living rooms, updated kitchens, tons of closet space, big bedrooms. Plenty of street parking, great location, safe neighborhood. Cons: Our biggest complaints are bugs and safety. For the first six months, we had a major cockroach infestation, and an exterminator had to spray about 6 times. We rarely see them in our apartment now, but they are still on the grounds (we see them in the courtyard all the time). Secondly, while the neighborhood is super safe and we've never actually had a problem, our neighbors always leave the entry door propped open, which defeats its purpose. Also, not having a locked garage has always been an issue for me. Overall, it's a nice place, but it's old. Things are moldy (or get moldy pretty easily), and the bathrooms aren't very nice. Overall, this place needs a really good, professional cleaning job. But it's decent for most people, and I've been happy living here for the time I have.
