The gardens are beautiful and well kept. The overall maintenance crew it's very polite and respond to your needs almost immediately. The apartments are comfortable and it's a good value for the price. My only complaint is that the range, refrigerator, washer and dryer are very old fashioned and small. You have to pay a ridiculous $30 fee a month to keep the refrigerator. However it will do if you're not planning to stay here for more than a year or you are by yourself.

      Overall it's a good value for what you get . These apartments are priced on the lower side. I looked for other apartments of similar space and they are roughly $100-200 more. It's a fine place to live. It's safe and moderately new. Unfortunately there are some issues . It's not a big deal to me , but those of you who are pickier might want to consider living somewhere else. Ya it'll cost you more money to live elsewhere though Problems Noise. Not noisy neighbors but bad soundproofing. A typhoon happens when the upstairs guy take a shower. Hurt my ears bad. The bathrooms particularly have poor soundproof. You can hear people talking . Drainage- clean the sewers please. Bathroom drains slowly. A few times the tub backed up with sewage. Termites- I saw an exterminator truck today. Maybe they finally decided to spent $$ to fix this instead of making the maintenance guy pretend to do bandaid patches. Well I don't care much about termites but don't live here too long. One day the upstairs guy might crush you in your sleep. In summary I'm satisfied living here. It's a fine deal despite what I listed.

        Lived there for 3 years. I moved because of the parking situation. The manager says that the open parking spaces are for tenants, but tenants can hardly find a space in the lot because the manager lets guests park in the tenant spaces. The manager rents to families with 8 to 10 people in ONE apartment. Two cars for a family is normal, but a lot of these tenants have 4 or 5 cars per apartment and then let all of their guests park in tenant spaces. My 82 year old grandmother would come home with me occasionally and I thought it was horrible that the manager would expect her to walk from the street or the back of the complex because there is no parking. The apartments with all of the tenants would be so loud it was horrible. I would recommend that anyone looking for an apartment would try to find an apartment where the manager actually cares about the tenants in the complex and not just certain people.

          DO NOT MOVE IN HERE

          Kids are completely out of control. They are sooo loud and management don't care to address the problem. No peace and quiet especially on weekends. Kids will play everywhere even by the parking lot and mess up your car. No parental supervision. Plenty of other problems like no hot water or cars broken into. Not safe and very noisy.

            This apartments are a gold mine!!!!

            I lived in these apartments for a little over a year(we had to move due to financial difficulties), we had a two problems and they were minor and fixed immediately. Sonia and Diana were always EXTREMELY helpful if we had a problem or concern. I believe they went above and beyond their managerial duties, when my children would go hang out with their friends in the front of the apartments Sonia and Diana would keep an eye on them, I was extremely grateful for this.

              Management (sonia) is ignorant and lazy. My review would be pages long. Bottom line: Do not move here!

                  Please keep driving.

                  This place is unfit for ANYONE. The quality is horrible, and the management is ignorant at best and have severe behavorial problems. The manager allows her children to run around like they were raised by wolves, but every other child in the building is forced to play by the "rules." Her children are constantly tormenting other kids on the property, yet she acts as though the victimized tenants are the problem. Her husband is a nosy, drug and alcohol addicted slob who picks fights with the tenants, and again, she does nothing about it. The maintenance is practically non-existant, there are termite and ant infestations, and the trees, grass, and bushes on this property are unkempt. The apartments themselves are a far cry from "luxury" as they claim, in fact, living in the projects of Compton would probably be deemed more appropriate, clean, and quiet.

                    Not so good

                    I came with my friend to look for an apartment. When you first come into the place the roads are clean and paved and the grounds are nice. But the farther back into the complex you go the road is gravely and worn out, the bushes are either overgrown or non existent and it just looks bad. I think the thing that really turned us away is the phoniness of the managers. The one we talked to was really nice when we were talking to her, but then bad mouthed every tenant we saw as we were walking through the complex and turned very nasty very fast. Strange, we dont want to be the next victim of the bitter angry management here.

                      DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND DONT MOVE IN!!!

                      I have been living here for 3 years, and let me save you the trouble of moving in. These apartments suck!!! The only reason why I am still living here is because I can be moving out of country any day now, so there is no point to move. The apartments have no storage space at all!!!! The kitchen is so small with hardly any cabinets. And not to mention the crappy managment. The hot water was off for 4 days at one time before they finally got around to fixing the problem. Keep in mind that was not the first time the hot water stopped working. At one point it was a weekly thing, and worse thing about it, they dont even call you or warn you that there is no hot water!! Like I said, managment SUCKS!! Also, the place is not safe. I had my car broken into twice and personal items that where stolen from infront of my apartment. And did managment do anything about it, or even look into night secerity? NOPE!!! The actual maintenance guy is cool, he does his job and no complains there.… See More>

                        Great place

                        Don't believe everything you read. I almost didn't move into Orangewood apartments because of everything I read on here but I'm so glad I changed my mind and moved in. The apartment layout is really nice and if you live upstairs you have beautiful vaulted ceiling. It is really spacious for the price, and having a washer and dryer in the apartment is so convenient. The management is quick with repairs. The problems with the hot water have been fixed for a while now and I had no issue since they fixed it. I have never seen any spiders or mouse or bugs in my apartment at all. Overall it was a great place to live and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable safe, and nice place to live.

                          Pleasant 4 years

                          During my 4 years here at Orangewood, I have had an excellent experience. The grounds are routinely maintained, service issues are promptly dealt with (usually the same day), and rent is very reasonable for everything that you get in the apartment. The management really care about their tenants, and that shows in the way they treat their tenants. I have been thoroughly pleased with this apartment complex during the last 4 years. Don't let the negative reviews steer you away, this really is a gem of an apartment!

                            Management is Awesome

                            I have lived at Orangewood for 5 years. Yes they did have a problem with the boiler's, but management was right on top of the problem. I really like that it is on site management. The manager's are great. Some of the review's talks about 1 manager smoking, she never smoke's in the office, in your face or even in her apt. . This manager has alway's been there when ever a tenant need's her and I know several letter's have been written, letting her boss know that she goes beyond what is expected of her. If you have problem's with charge's look no futher than yourselve's. Either you have gotten into trouble of your own accord or left the apt. a disasterarea, then you blame management. I have lived other places were the management did not care or take care of any problems (work order's). Diana care's a great deal about her tenant.

                              Good experience

                              I lived in this place for around 4 months (moving to another state), I don't have much complaint. The management is good, and both the two ladies working as managers are nice. The maintenance people responded pretty quickly. Once I submitted a maintenance form because of no hot water, they fixed right away within 24 hours. I was very happy about their work, since this happened in the new year's day. I have read some of the previous reviews, some people complained about the fees they charged after leaving the apartment, personally I think the charge (less than $300) for me is reasonable. Before I checked out, one of the ladies even suggested me not to do the cleaning, because no matter what I did, they will hire some people to do it and charge me anyway. I was happy that they let me know in advance. One thing I do want to say is some complaints of one of the managers who smokes. I have seen some very bad words to her, which I don't think fair. If she smokes in the office, or in somebody else's apartment, of course it is a big problem. But I really don't… See More>

                                I moved out late last year, but my roommate still lives there. The place used to be a decent place to live and was generally quiet. Since the new management has arrived on the scene the place has nose dived into a ------ complex. Kids in the complex are out of control and don't seem to have decent parents and the manager could'nt care less. Dead landscaping and overgrown weeds make the place look bad.

                                  Great First Place

                                  I moved into a two bedroom/two bathroom apartment with a roommate in April 2006 and moved out in April 2007. I would recommend this place to someone who is looking for just a place to live. The only issues with the apartment that we ever had was one of the toilets clogging prior to leaving for work and receiving a call while at work that the toilet was leaking through our floor and dripping through the roof of the downstairs apartment. This was completely fixed by the time we got home from work. The second was our air conditioning bill was fairly high until we realized that the apartment was not well equipped with weather-stripping. Although, I spoke with management and had weather-stripping installed within the week. The management was good when we moved in, but shortly thereafter the assistant manager left and was replaced with a different woman (who was a bit rude and smokes constantly). The manager (Tina) was a good manager, she really worked with us in the move-out and post dated our 30-day notice so we wouldn't be charged for the next month because of a few days. Also, we lived near the rear of the… See More>

                                    I moved out late last year and I am very happy to be out of there. If you are thinking of moving into this complex, here is what you should expect. 1. You may or may not have hot water. Be prepared to get into the shower with a 50/50 chance of having to take an ice cold shower. My advice is to try to beat your neighbor into the shower in the morning. 2. Given the hot water problem, the management is always trying to fix the delapidated plumbing. So, you will find that your water will be turned off at least 3 or 4 times a month. You won't get any advance notice from this management though, you'll just have to find out that they planned to shut off the water the hard way. Probably when you are in the middle of your ice cold shower with shampoo in your hair..bam the water is off! 3. You will have mice and the most ENORMOUS spiders you ever want to see. I mean big ugly hairy wolf spiders.. Oh yeah, they do bite and they are rather aggressive, so give them what they want. The female… See More>

                                      This is the most poorly managed apartment complex in the area with the nastiest management. I enjoyed living here a few years ago when Tina and Barbara managed the complex, but since they have left, the complex and tenant morale has gone downhill. The nasty marlboro woman (manager)is dishonest and will gossip about other tenants to anyone who happens to be in her way. She clearly believes that she has the power to do whatever she wants. I had only wished she would have used some of that power to fix the pest problem and clean the place up. I am fortunate to have moved out, and I can not recommend this complex to anyone who has any hope of being treated with respect or getting their moneys worth for an apartment.

                                        The management of this complex has changed reguarly since I have lived here with each manager/assistant become worse and worse. Diana, the chain smoking assistant is possibly the most obnoxious rude person I have ever encoutered. Watch out for that sardonic smile visible only through a cloud of smoke. HORRIBLE bug problem, no security, water is off and on constantly with no warning. For the price you are going to pay for this apartment you are really better going to a professionally anaged property.

                                          My husband and I came by this complex to look at an apartment. We were met by the manager who was out front puffing on smoke. When we walked up we had to wait for her to finish her cigarette before we were allowed to talk to her. Then when we finally were able to get down to business, we had to listen to her make one nasty comment after another about some of the tenants. Some of these comments were incredibly rude and uncalled for. Not to mention she STUNK to high heaven of cigarettes. This woman was so UNPROFESSIONAL and RUDE that we decided to go elsewhere and pay a higher rental rate. After all if she was this nasty before we even decided to move in, what would she be like AFTER we moved in? Message to this manager...GET OVER YOURSELF YOU MANAGE AN APARTMENT COMPLEX AND ARE NO ONE SPECIAL! AND YOU STINK!!!

                                            I moved into this apartment in 2004 with a roomate, we thought we had lucked out with space and a fireplace. However, things seemed to have changed abruptly with no thought to the needs of the tenants. We used to have a security guard who walked the grounds nights, but they let them go for no apparent reason, my roomate had her car broken into and many things stolen including her CD changer for the car. A close friend of mine came over to help me with something and her car was stolen from the parking lot!! while she was in with me. People park their cars and trucks in front of your car so you can't get out. People use your spot!!! Large groups of people congregate in the parking lot and are quite loud when normal people are trying to sleep (12am and on) Crime is on the rise and the rent is not reasonable enough for it. Please look on.

Turns out the location is also "awesome" to burglars. After my car was broken into the police told us that Orangewood was a prime spot for burglary located between 2 freeway entrances. Lovely. Management doesn't give a ---- about the theft problem. The security guard we DID have mysteriously disappeared. HUNT ENTERPRISES cares more about their money than their tenants. When we got a puppy, we had to pay the $500 deposit and were basically told by the manager that Mrs. Hunt would be keeping our deposit one way or another by coming in after we move out and using a "special machine" to detect urine and even if we got the carpets cleaned, she could still tell. That's -------- considering both our deposits to them equal about $1300. Eveytime someone moves out they replace ALL the carpet, but I hear that they also try to screw you out of your deposit by saying there's carpet damage???

                                                I've lived here mostly for my convenience, its close to my work. I thought I was going to love it here.<br>But the manager TINA can be horrible. She is very moody and does not always know the best thing to do/handle things.<br>We've had complaints from the people downstairs b/c we are loud! but we are not doing anything out of the ordinary! the walls are so thin!<br>Ants have 2 seasons here. And they dont seem to care, they reassure u that they will go away. Also since I've lived here I have not had hot water in my kitchen. There are other tenants who dont have hot water in bathrooms even with pleading to the managers. I too told them about my lack of hot water! <br>Beware, if u like to lose money for crappy living go for it! Move in!

                                                  you gotta be kidding me

                                                  I still presently live here and I am looking for new places to live... Lived here for over a year now.<br><br>Basically when i moved in, I was very impressed with the spaciousness of the apartment as well as the fact that though it is not gated, they had a security guard. The MAIN reason why i moved in: the guard would stay there OVERNIGHT and make sure everything was OK. The manager Tina stated that they have not had any incidents and everything was SAFE.<br><br>Well, they decided to take the security guard away. WITHOUT informing the residents cuz "they dont want to spend the money for it." <br>OK FINE<br><br>So a week later, my car and as well as a friend's car who also lives here.... BROKEN INTO and stuff stolen including chargers. They even opened the gas tank and stole my license plate. I told the managers, they didnt care.<br><br>I had bees swarm my apartment during finals week as well as termites as we speak. IF i so much as SEE the termites, i'm going to freak out. I have heard stories of SWARMS of termites here. <br><br>Everything breaks down over time right?… See More>
