Resident 2016 - 2017


This is the best place I have ever lived. The apartments are nice and spacious! We have lived here almost two years and we don't plan on moving anytime soon. The staff are very helpful and so nice. They really care about their renters. I am disabled and when I moved to the apartments I needed some handicap bars put in the bathroom so I could get in and out of the shower and they did everything. I like the small neighborhood feel and the fact that my kids can ride their scooters and I don't have to worry about cars speeding through the parking lot. It's kept clean and the lawns are well manicured and done weekly and they have a car wash station in the back. I never plan on moving!

    DO NOT move into the Decatur Crossing!!!! They do not care of your safety, they only care about the money. Me and my boyfriend moved in this apartment in September 2015, and I am writing this review in July 2016. He's got a nice GM truck and you know what, the tires has been stolen TWICE within half a year. The people in leasing office would help us to call the police or do anything to improve the safety. They just don't care about safety and this apartment is not safe!!!! There were few ubreaks-ins in this apartment during this period too. The apartment people did nothing but sending us an email. They didn't put more security camera in the apartment ( we only got a very low quality one in the whole apartment). The leasing office people just sitting on their ---!!!! We pay about $15000per month but our tires got stolen twice!!! This apartment looks pretty but not safe at all!!!!!!

      I've lived here for two years and we're about to sign for our third year. We've really enjoyed living at Decatur Crossing! All the problems we've had have never been due to "Decatur Crossing" but rather these are the issues you run into becaue you live in an apartment complex! Sometimes we hear people late at night but it's not that often and it's not loud enough to wake you up if you're asleep. If anything it's someone walking by not realizing they are talking loudly. We live on the top floor so we don't hear anyone above us (we choose the top floor of apartments for this reason). We've never heard the neighbor next to us. Some neighbors are more friendly than other, but no one has ever been out right rude. I have a dog and I've never felt unsafe walking him at night. The grounds are kept up fairly well, you'll see dog poop fairly often but this is due to the residents, and you'll see this at any apartment complex. They keep pinestraw around the landscaping and they just painted the entire buidling. The pool is nice and well kept. There are usually a lot of families with… See More>

        Decatur Crossing (formerly Archstone, then Grayson Park) The staff here is the best that I've ever seen. Excellent 5 star treatment. The complex is well kept. The 2 bedroom format is wonderful and works very well with large rooms and high ceilings. Now for the bad part: - The first week in May there were 2 apartments broken into. - The people upstairs are driving me crazy with all the noise. - You can hear your neighbors over you walking and stomping on the floors. - Dogs barking from inside apartments. - Finding a parking spot after 7p.m. is a mess. I have not lived here long, I like it, but I am concerned that down the line it might start working against me. If you have people living above you and they are loud, this will make a big differance on how you feel about the complex.

          Overall, these apartments aren't bad. However, there are a couple of reasons I would warn someone against moving into this complex: 1) Parking - If you get home right around 5 PM on a work day, it's not so bad. However, if you get home after 7 PM or 8 PM any day of the week, you basically have to park at the very front or very back of the apartment complex. Additionally, some people, rather than parking further away from their apartments, will just park in the handicap parking spots, which I find classless. When I brought this issue to the front office's attention, they didn't really do anything about it. 2) Bugs - This wasn't a problem for me until the weather got a bit colder, but in the past month to six weeks, I've noticed a lot of bugs in my apartment. 3) Communications with staff - One of my biggest irritants is that the staff members will shove notices in your door instead of emailing the residents or posting notices. Because I regularly travel on business, I feel like doing this is a big red flag that I'm not at home. 4) Surrounding area -… See More>

            Pretty good place to stay. Very safe but the neigbors are a bit rude & have no hospitality at all. But who cares just do you & keep being positive. The office staff is great & will work with you no matter what problems you have. You have until the 5th to pay rent & that's a hard grace period to come by now of days. I moved out last September but it's very safe & clean at Archstone of Decatur. I recommend that out of all the surrounding apts that you should pick this one. Maintenance is very good & fix problems fast & on time. I pray that all the readers pray before all things & continue to trust in the Lord Jesus. Have a blessed day!Ohh yeah I forgot THERE ARE NO BUGS AT THIS COMPLEX SO THAT'S ALWAYS A PLUS!

              GREAT PLACE TO LIVE!!!!!!!

              Archstone Decatur is a great place to live. I have lived there with my wife and son for 2 years now and I have never had an issue with the staff or other tennants. The front office staff/management are friendly and helpful, and the maintenance manager (who lives on site) is exceptional and highly accomodating. Everyone has been very kind to us and I reccomend renting here if you are looking for a safe area to live. If you have any issues, the management team is more than willing to help...i have had nothing but a great experience here!

                I would recommend this apartment complex

                I have been living here since June 2010, and I would strongly recommend this complex. To address some of the concerns that have been raised in recent reviews: 1. Yes, the rent has gone up, but ours was supposed to increase by $40/month but we negotiated with management and comprised on a $15/month rent increase. Its important to note that rent in nearby apt complexes also did increase (I checked). 2. Yes, there was a string of break-ins in the late summer, early fall of 2011. Management did send out notices and did ask residents to be more vigilant about locking doors, windows, etc. There have been no other incidents that I know of since that time. 3. Residents are pretty friendly. Whenever I say hello/good morning, etc. I always have gotten a response. During the warmer months, people hang out by the pool and talk to you. And the complex has get-togethers (ice cream social, movie night, free breakfast) that encourages you to get to know other residents. 4. Bugs......I have only ever seen 2 roaches in my unit. This is Georgia, though - there are lots of bugs outside. We had ants one… See More>

                  Increasing security concerns - avoid this complex

                  We have now lived in this complex for 3 years and until recently had been pleased with this living situation. We chose the complex due to its proximity to Emory, where I work as a physician (my husband is a professional as well). At the time of our leasing, we were also told that there had not been any serious criminal incidents in the neighborhood. However, we are now finding ourselves afraid to remain living here after recent reports of several criminal acts. Even more concerning is the lack of adequate response by the apartment management despite several suggestions and confrontations regarding security on the property. We have even heard from neighbors that at least two apartments were broken into (had the doors kicked in) PRIOR to us moving in, which suggests that the management were dishonest in their report that no serious criminal act had occurred here prior to our arrival. We would not have chosen this complex if we had that information. Several months ago we heard a loud bang in the middle of the night followed by an alarm sounding. We called the apartment s answering service to report this activity. We… See More>

                    Nice Place To Live

                    I've lived here almost 2 years and am transferring to a larger apartment within the next few months. Never had a problem with the staff. They are friendly and extremely accomodating. The maintenance staff attends to all calls within a 24 hour period and have never been anything, but couterous and professional. Parking can sometimes be an issue because almost every unit here seems to have 2 or 3 cars in the household. Neighbors are friendly and usually quiet. There are a few too many dogs for my taste, but the majority of the owners clean up after their pets as required. If not, the management handles the matter with the errant tenant immediately. Of all the apartments I've lived in, this is the only complex I'd recommend to family and friends.

                        Bad Leasing Experience

                        Beautiful apartments, The staff was very helpful until my leasing experience went bad. lets just say i felt like i was applying for a bank loan and was denied for no valid reason. I was tolled after paying $200 plus in fees the most that they would ask me for is 2 mos in advance and i was ok with that i agreed. but instead i was denied because i had never taken out any loans ?? What the hell i never heard of such thing..like hello im not applying for a home loan you know? lol Mind you I have good credit (not excellent) my income is very GOOD no bankrupts or etc, but yet i was denied...I really had my hopes high but they crashed them =[ Management should be more considerate and not always look at prospective tenants as a number.

                          First off let me say I liked the place when I first moved here but as the months went by the place was going down hill. My rent shot up from 630 a month to 850 and sometimes 900 because of they fees they tack on to you bill and everything is combined into one which is not a good thing. You can keep you apartment clean all you want but you must beware of big roaches. I'm in my new place now and I haven't had a bug problem yet. Number two its really noisy outside during the night time b/c of the strip club right behind it. And when I first moved their their was only one person that was helpful but the lady she was always rude to me and she called to so I can change my apartment rating on this place and it still stands to day as one of the worst places I could have moved to. If you say hi to the neighbors they don't say anything back they just give you a evil stare like you did something wrong. Even though its gated don't be fooled. The place I am at right… See More>

                            Has its ups and downs like all places.

                            I've lived here at Archstone for about a year now. I have to say I LOVED my apartment from when I moved in until now. In fact, I still LOVE my literal actual apartment. I'm moving and I wish I could just pick it up and take it with me. I think the best feature of this apartment is the light. I'm facing the parking lot on the 2nd floor and when the blinds are up, the light is just beautiful here. The ceilings are high, crown molding. I have a built-in bookcase and computer desk. The kitchen is small (I'd like more counter space, but oh well). I have tons of room here, and I've only had to make 2 maintenance calls (1 for my AC and 1 for my smoke detector's low battery - I can't reach the ceiling, too short). They responded very quickly to my calls. Were nothing but nice. As far as the Leasing Office, I can't tell you. I'm a loner by nature and I keep to myself. I pay my rent online in auto-debit and I've put in my maintenance calls online. When I see the Leasing Agents on the property they always… See More>

                              I visited this community while in town, I am relocating.

                              I am relocating from VA and visited the other day. I called in advance and spoke to Eve, who was very nice. I went, she gave me a tour and some info on the apartments. She was very nice and imformative and I must admit I was equally impressed with the apartment community. I am strongly considering but I am trying to stay within a certain budget. Overall I think this is a nice community, the residents who came to the office seemed friendly and happy overall. When you visit a community, you can tell alot about it by how the residents seem. I also think the value is there, it looks clean, its gated and the apartments are nice.

                                I moved into Archstone Decatur Apartments in April 2009. The staff was and continue to be professional and very friendly. I had a couple of maintenance concerns, and they were acknowledged within a few hours and were taken care of within in a couple of days. I enjoy my home and will recommend to anyone looking for an apartment. The entire complex is clean and many of my neighbors are very friendly.

                                  I've lived here since July 2005. It was Grayson Park then. I really like the changes Archstone has made to the property. The Management is absolutely wonderful to work with. They listen and are attentive to your needs. The maintenance people are prompt in fixing things. No worry whether it's going to be taken care of. They fix it the same day you send the request. They keep up the grounds consistently. Yes, the gates have stopped working a few times but certainly work more than they are broken. The speed bumps have made a big impact on speeders (which was a good idea). I really like it here. There will be noise you may have to contend with but that's typical for any apartment. If you need absolute quite you might want to consider getting a single family dwelling. However, the noise isn't that bothersome where you can't get your rest. There is plenty of parking. I've never had an issue finding a space near my building. I feel very safe even when coming home late at night. The apartments have alarm systems installed. I'm considering moving at this point because I need a 2br and they… See More>

                                      I really miss this place. The only reason we moved is because my husband got a job clear across town and didn't want to commute. Maintenance was prompt about fixing things, the office staff was helpful, and the grounds were very pretty. We even saw the courtesy officer once! And, most importantly, the interior of the apartment was clean and beautiful. In two years I almost never saw any roaches, which was really important to me as the Mom of a toddler. Now that I live in a place that's roach infested, I really see what a great place I had in Archstone.

                                        Since I moved in, there have 3 management changes. The original company was o.k., but some assistants were rude. The second company was not organized and was not helpful. The third and current company (Archstone) is wonderful. The new manager seems to know her stuff really well. I recommend living here if you make a lot of money and enjoy quality. Very nice. Wish I could stay but they jacked up the price substantually. Oh well.

                                          Going downhill, slowly but surely

                                          Before I even begin, I've read all the reviews on this place, and I'm not sure what the people who are so horrified about this place are scared about. I'm a young white female and I've never felt scared to death or seriously threatened while living here. I've never had anyone knock on my door or try to slay me with a sickle or anything like that. I feel like Archstone is a moderately safe place to live, and I say moderately because you can't know everyone who lives here and visits. That being said, though, I do feel that this place is starting to go downhill. Not in a HUUUUGE way, it's not officially ------ or anything like that....slowly but surely, you just get the feeling that this isn't the place it used to be. PROS: - Lovely, well maintained swimming area and nice leasing office. - Good workout center (with basic equipment and two TV's). - Well-maintained, beautiful landscaping really adds to your experience. - The car care center is FREE (free vacuum and free water hose) - The apartments themselves are, I would say, nicer than average given the price range.

                                              All I have to say is, before you or anyone considers moving into this establishment, know that management only cares about the money and there are issues. My last day packing up everything and moving out, I spoke with the on-site police officer ("Andy"). He even stated that he couldn't wait to leave; that this place is gone bananas! I left my apartment and gave them possession of the property a week or two in advance (cleaner than it was when I moved in) before my move-out date and they still charged me with a fee (even though I e-mailed them notifying them that I would not be renewing my lease) and then they charged me for a water bill that totaled almost 2 months at the end (I never saw the bill). I had threatening calls from a Nicole (nasty attitude - office person) to send me to collections if I didn't send them the money. If you have an issue after hours, forget it. The staff they have for after hours is so abusive on the phone and they don't even turn in your request to have maintenance. I was hung… See More>

                                                  To respond to that other person that lives here. The gates are a false sence of security anyway, yes they have been breaking, but they are always fixed right away. Before Archstone put in the speed bumps several of my neighbors almost got creemed just checking their mail- they were a must and so they put them in. Before Archstone, my work orders never were completed, the breezeways were dirty, and lots of things were overlooked that have now been taken care of and it is a MUCH better place to live. Obviously the other resident was a cronic speeder, that's why they don't like the speedbumps.<br>I would recommend this place to ANYONE!!
