Resident 2011 - 2013

7/28/2013

Parking-- 1/5 For a 4 bedroom apartment, you only get 2 parking spaces. Visitor spots only happen when you're lucky. Street parking is a pain and sometimes that's even filled. So you have to park at the park parking lot next to apartment, but it's a long walk. Noise-- 3/5. Sometimes I can hear my neighbors walk up the stairs and it freaks me out because I think it's coming from my apartment. Either than that, people occasionally throw parties on the weekend, but I can't hear anything outside if I'm inside my room. There is an elementary school next door,so some apartments can hear the school bell and the noisy children during the day. Grounds-- 1/5. The model home has the best outside appearance. It's substantially better looking than every apartment complex. I hung up wind chimes and management THREW THEM AWAY without any warning or permission. My window had a sign that says "LOWER STUDENT FEES". It was the size of printer paper and it was had nothing else, and they wrote me a warning to take it down because it was unattractive. If I did not, they would have charged me $100. That was absurd. Safety--5/5. Outside lighting could be better. They need a light near the dumpster. Shrubs are always cut. I feel safe. I never heard of our apartment or neighbors getting robbed. If you are scared to walk outside at night, I feel bad for you. Seriously, this place has only college students living here. Construction-- 3/5 quality is great. Before you move in, I recommend double checking your garbage disposal because after a month of living there, we turned it on the first time and it didn't work. We didn't check it for inspection, so we got charged a repair fee because we didn't file a claim when we moved in. I would have gave them a 4/5, but the bedrooms do NOT come with lighting. You have to purchase your own light even though there is a light switch that operates the ceiling plug. Heat insulation depends on were your house is facing. If your room is facing the sun, it can get super hot during the summer. Maintenance-- 1/5. (1) After filing a claim, it takes from days to weeks to repair. Our light fixture in our bathroom stopped working more than once. We gave up trying to get them to repair it because at least one of them worked. Our washing machine was broken and it took about a month for them to repair it because they forgot about it. And the worst is, you have to pay repair fees. Other apartment complexes do not have to pay repair fees like broken garbage disposals or a clogged bath tub. Horrible. I used to live at The Colleges and their maintenance people would hang up wall fixtures for free for us. Staff-- 5/5. They're nice people. Overall -- 2/5. The apartment itself is huge. The pool is not. It's right across Safeway and there is a nice park with tennis courts next door. Parking is a drag. And you will probably not get your deposit back. I like the hardwood floors and there is a front and back entrance. The area is safe, but maintenance sucks. They jacked up the rent, which is why I gave them a 2 instead of a 3. It has its both pros and cons, but probably more cons. For the first year, the neighbors were chill. The 2nd year, they were total -------s and called the police on us when I had friends over. They could have knocked and told us to quiet down because we did not realize we were being loud. All I have to say is, you are living in a college town, and this apartment complex is filled with college students. So if students wanna come over on Sunday to watch football or chill on a Friday night, than expect that some noise will happen.
