Former Resident · 2020
The TL;DR of this review is you are paying too much to live in these poor conditions also, beware it is about $900-$1010 PER ROOM NOT FOR THE WHOLE UNIT that is not clear on their website or before you move in. Also, notice the 5-star reviews are concise and generic with no details. It's because the staff have half baked events and have people leave 5-star reviews to "win" items. I think you should live here if you have no other housing options in the Atlanta area, as you will be homeless if you don't move into westmar. The building is disgusting at all times. The hallways smell like trash, and the elevators and stairwell smell like pee. If you need peace and quiet westmar is not for you, the walls are paper-thin, and you can hear the conversations of the people who live next to you. If you don't like the smell of weed or cigarettes, this is also not the place for you; the non-smoking is a lie, and if you complain about it, the staff will do nothing about it. The team is horrible; the only ones who seem to know what they are doing are one skinny light skin black guy and the other dark skin black guy. I don't know their names, but they are super helpful and should work someplace better. Speaking of staff, if you call the leasing office, be ready to call back 3 or 4 times before someone answers, and I am pretty sure they don't check messages. I never got a call back when I left my name and phone number. The security is a joke because all the doors in the back are unlocked. Most of the security guards are helpful except the short skinny black guy; he always has a bad attitude and gives me the vibe he didn't make it in APD. The actual rooms smell horrible, so keep a candle lit at all times air fresheners do not work. Also, the rooms are okay. Nothing about them is "elite" or "luxury" but very liveable. If you are going to move in here, make sure you pick your roommates because their "roommate pairing service" is not real and is 100% random, so if you don't mind a little mess, there's 100% chance you will be paired with a clean freak. The guest policy is better if you lived on campus then here. The guest parking situation is horrible; your better off having people uber and walking in the back because guest parking is inconvenient and set up, so you get a boot.
