When I moved in, there were many stains on the carpet, and even a huge bleach spot by the bathroom, so I made sure to specifically note that on the checklist they gave me before moving in so they knew I didn't do that. Other than that, the apartment was ok- on the old side, but I figured you get what you pay for.<br>One bad thing was that I was able to hear my neighbors listening to tv/music and vacuuming, and when I opened the cabinets in my kitchen, I could smell whatever they were cooking (I guess it was drifting through the pipes??)<br><br>Parking wasn't a problem for me, and I never really felt unsafe, although the surrounding neighborhood was definitely pretty sketchy. The grounds were kept pretty nice, and the pool was clean.<br><br>About 2 months before my lease was up, I decided I was moving back to my hometown, so I called the leasing office so they would know I was not renewing my lease. Well, the manager informs me that I'm supposed to give 60 days notice if I'm not renewing my lease, so I'm going to have to pay for an extra month! No where in my lease did it say anything about a 60 day notice- a lease is a lease! You live there until the lease is up, and when it's up, you either renew, or move out! I argued with the nasty manager forever on the phone, and finally came to a compromise. <br>The day I moved out, I requested for the manager to do a walk through with me to make sure there wasn't anything she was going to mark down to take off my deposit, because the apt. was exactly the way I got it. Conveniently, she wasn't available like she said she would be, so I had to leave without a walkthrough. Sure enough, when my deposit was returned to me, there was about 50 bucks taken out, when there should have been NO reason to, but I didn't even want to waste my time trying to argue with the manager about it. <br><br>It wasn't a horrible place to live, but if you can afford a bit more, I'd go somewhere else.<br>
