Resident 2017 - 2018

5/3/2018

I lived at Idaho Terrace for one year in a studio apartment. There are many good things about the building, it is in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, the staff is very helpful and friendly, and I never saw one bug or rodent in my apartment. However, there are some negative aspects that I couldn't get past to justify spending another year in the apartment. To begin, the rent is much too expensive. It was nearly $1500 a month for a small studio. For a few hundred extra, you will be able to get a bigger place in a nearby neighborhood. Secondly, it is not easy to get around the city. While there are buses, it is not as convenient as the metro and ended up expanding my commute time by nearly 20 minutes. Lastly, the place reeks of cigarettes. There were many nights that my window was open and the smell of cigarette smoke seeped through my apartment. Also, if you have an apartment facing the back u-shape of the building, it is like a wind tunnel and the wind is very loud. While I enjoyed living at Idaho Terrace, I would recommend finding another place before moving here.… See More>

    I love Idaho Terrace and Bernstein Management. For the price and location, it can't be beat. The apartments are kept clean and I've never had any problems with bugs etc and it's very very safe which is very important to me. I would definitely recommend to a friend. Living in DC, it's hard to find an affordable, safe, nice apartment and I've been so happy with Idaho Terrace. I looked around at several apartments before finding Idaho Terrace and was scared I couldn't be able to find something. Some places were just scary at how poor the conditions were. Idaho Terrace is clean, the neighbors are friendly, it's close to a lot of attractions and the main part of DC and Georgetown. It's great!

      Overall it is a good experience, but they should try to keep the students as best they can on the same floors. They can be very disruptive and tend to pay no attention to quiet hour rules. At least 3 of the washers don't work correctly, very difficult to wring out very wet clothes, happens almost everytime.

        Satisfying experience with affordable price of housing esp for a college student like myself. The surrounding area is also convenient with easy access to metro bus. Staffs are also friendly and helpful. The room is also convenient but if they can provide lights in our rooms, that'd be awesome.

          Things have improved greatly at Idaho Terrace since Bernstein bought the building and took over its management. The present manager, Barret Sanford, is great and the receptionist, Lauren, is unfailingly polite and helpful. I love the location of the building, in a very quiet residential neighbhoord with bus service outside the door and easy access to shopping areas in Northwest.

            The experience has been positive. The apartment complex is quiet and the residents are polite and respectful. The grounds are clean and well-maintained. The staff are always helpful, courteous, kind. I am very happy with my decision to live at Idaho Terrace.

              I've lived here for several years. It's a nice building, but service has deteriorated since new management has come in. The building also has roaches and mice (in common areas and apartments). The current rent is too high to justify what you get for the area. If you're willing to pay more than $1,400, look elsewhere.

                This is our second apartment in this building. In summer 2015 we moved from a studio to a one bedroom. Besides one lengthy experience with a pest control issue we have loved our time in Idaho Terrace. General maintenance is greater but when outside vendors are needed the service was less than ideal.

                  Lived here for 5 years, but got tired of the apathetic nature Bernstein Management has towards the residents, and felt that my only option was to move. The building and units are fine. There has been 1 elevator down for over a year, and I doubt that it will be resolved anytime soon. I had a locked bicycle stolen from the basement garage and asked Bernstein to see if there was any footage available to see how someone was able to get in and steal a locked bike. They said they would but never did. Other bikes have also been stolen. People leave trash outside their doors in the hallway, in the stairwell, stacked outside the trash shoot. Inform management, they do nothing. The laundry machines were replaced 3 times when I lived there, and they always sucked. No point in complaining to management because they say that they aren't responsible for them. They spent a bunch of time reconstructing the front driveway, moving the ellipse from going under the front overhang, to in-front of it? Why? They put in a gravel path along the front of the building, but then planted trees in the middle of the path, only to then have those trees… See More>

                    Everyone seems very nice so far and were very helpful during my move-in. The staff is extremely pleasant and very responsive to email and phone calls. I was pleased with the renovations made to my unit prior to moving in after I saw it in its previous state.

                        Great apartment. It's a little far from the metro, but the neighborhood is safe, the apartment is nice, and the management makes life a lot easier. From experience, I highly recommend paying a little more for a good place like this over cheaper rent someplace like Anacostia. You get what you pay for! The utilities and fitness room are an extra bonus. I really recommend paying the extra money to stay in a good, well-building like this over cheap rent in a seedier area. The utilities and fitness room are a huge bonus!

                          Service was timely but the problem still occurs. My AC unit was requested to be fixed. It worked after the tech serviced it. but shortly after it stopped producing AC. I would like a service member to come fix the issue properly this time. Thank you

                            Idaho Terrace has reasonably-priced apartments located close to good public transportation and shopping. I have lived in this apartment building for many years and, considering the reasonably priced rent, friendliness of the surrounding community, and access to shopping and public transportation, recommend Idaho Terrace highly.

                                So far I am very happy with Idaho Terrace! The staff is very friendly and the building is very clean. The constant maintenance on the elevators is annoying, but I understand it needs to be done. I wish the office's hours were a little different, possibly opening up at 8:30, because the only day I'm able to go in if I have a package is Tuesday, which can be annoying. But also I understand that the office staff may not be able to do that.

Gave alot of recommendations and advice to someone new to the neighborhood. The apartment building is well kept and very clean. The unit was surprisingly larger than I had hoped!

                                    The grounds are kept up very well. It is green, quiet, and peaceful, but only a ten-minute bus ride from DC's bustling Dupont Circle. The staff is friendly and prompt in responding to inquiries and problems. Lauren is always willing to go the extra mile for residents. She was extremely helpful during the application process. The other residents all seem particularly friendly. The rooms are very spacious, bright, and cheery (even my west-facing efficiency!). I cannot speak to the heating yet, but the central air-conditioning keeps the room nice and cool and comfortable. It's really a pleasure to call this community my home!

                                      This building doesn't have many amenities (or really any at all), but it is cheap(in comparison) and the neighborhood is quiet. If you're looking for "luxuries" offered in most other apartments, like a dishwasher, garbage disposal, or a 24-hour desk service (or even desk service after 7pm), look elsewhere. On the upside, it's clean and usually reasonably quiet. The maintenance staff are responsive to requests and building staff are friendly.

                                        The leasing office is a horrible pain in the --- to deal with. Avoid this building at all costs. Since I've been here they've found asbestos in the apartment and kicked me out every morning for over a week, a pipe bursted and flooded the bedroom, and it is impossible to switch lease holders of you aren't physically in the building. They have short office hours, no one is available on weekends of something goes wrong, and they have a pretentious attitude when dealing with tenants. Oh, and the laundry room consists of washers and dryers that are broken at least 50% of the time. The only good thing about this apartment building is that it's cheaper than surrounding buildings...then again you get what you pay for.

They were able to rush my application and were prepared for me to move in with 24 hours of me completing the application. Maintenance had already taken care of the few small issues with the apartment that were noticed when we first viewed the apartment. So far the building has been clean and quiet. Very pleased so far!

                                              Very quiet building with minimal issues. Issues that occur with older buildings happen often, especially with paint, but they are fixed quickly. Staff is courteous and professional. It is a very safe area but not very accessible by metro, unless you use the bus system.

                                                I absolutely love this building and community. I lived here in 2013-2014 and had to move because I'm a student and money was tighter during my first year. Loved it so much that I moved back! The rates are affordable and it's clean and QUIET. It's part of the rules that you cannot be boisterous or loud, and they enforce it. I appreciate that so so much because it means I can study in peace. The maintenance guys are so incredibly helpful and nice and the office staff are very kind. When I moved in, they had put lavender and chamomile hand soap in my kitchen with a roll of paper towels, for me. It's a small gesture but it meant so much to me - especially after a long hot day of moving furniture! Love this building, hoping to stay for years to come.
