Do not rent here.

Overpriced rent. High crime area. Garbage lines the parking lot. You pay for pest control that is non existent. You pay for “amenitiesâ€� that are non existent unless you count the dirty pool that’s always shut down for maintenance. When it’s not it’s taken over by folks who do not even live here that jump over the fence to access it. Maintenance is awful. Be prepared to have AC go down in the thick of the summer and spend weeks wishing you were dead because they do not prioritize tenants well being at all. It is a money grab and if you are a prospective tenant I beg of you to find other accommodations. Or else be prepared for your mental health to take a massive hit living here.… See More>

    My outlets haven't worked in 5 days, I can't cook and they won't hwouldn

    The management is HORRIBLE from the SLUMLORD owners on down to the maintenance. My oven didn't work for a month and then all of the outlets stopped working ( For the second time and it's been 5 days and counting) If you want to be miserable they have plenty units. MOVE IN AT YOUR OWN RISK! ???????????????? Four thumbs down

      Terrible leasing agents that are rude and unprofessional, work orders such as my AC take forever to be resolved which leaves my family to gather around a little window ac unit that was provided. Terrible neighborhood where it is very likely your car will be broken into. People blasting musics speeding in the driveways and smoking weed.

        Oh my goodness! Do not ever move here! Worst place I have ever lived, by far. Management is rude and do not care about the people who live here, nor do they care who they let move in. The place is cheap. Yes. But you get what you pay for. Out air conditioning had stopped working server all times. The emergency contact number is not a real number. I'm pretty sure the guys who work here stole money out of one of my jars while they were "spraying for bugs". The neighborhood is terrible as well. I've heard many gunshots at night. Do not move here.

          This is a amazing complex. Me and my boyfriend have been here a little over two years and we have love everything about it. The space in the bedroom, the wall in closet, the balcony being big and spacey. We haven't had a noise issues or anything bad honestly since we got here and would recommend lakeside to anyone in the area looking for a good apartment.

              I have been living at Lakeside Apartments for almost 1yr now, and plan to stay 1 more yr if not longer... Fantastic maintanance crew!! They respond to all repairs in a flash. I also love to see all the many Ducks every day swimming on the large pond or walking around the complex .The office staff are very friendly and always have a smile and a wave when I see them. I would recommend living at Lakeside Apartments to anyone.... Big Thumbs up from me I would give 4 stars .

                My name is Amelia, I have been living at Lakeside for almost 5 years. Everyone here is nice, I keep to myself and I enjoy it here. When I have a package mailed to me the office calls me to tell me it arrived. One time I forgot to turn my AC down when I left for the weekend and the leasing agent Caitlin was so nice she went over there to turn it down for me to save on my power bill. They are putting a lot of effort in right now with a new laundry room and the buildings are being painted and the office is getting renovated. I recommend it to anyone who needs a nice place to live at a good price where people look out for you.

                  I have lived here for two years. I rarely have complaints and when I do management takes care of it promptly. I have had a few maintenance issues and they have fixed it within a quick time frame. Not to long ago I had problems with my dishwasher and when they tried to fix it and could not they just got me a new one! I am military and I had to go on a short deployment and they worked with me while I was gone. I felt my apartment would be kept in good hands.The area is quiet and I would recommend it.

                    My husband,grandson and I had moved here from PA. two years ago.We were looking for a place that me and my grandson would feel safe since my husbands job kept him gone all week. In two years I've never had a problem.The ladies in the office are always polite and quick to react if a problem arises.Maintenance men have always responded to fix anything in a reasonable amount of time in fact my air went out on a Sunday and maintenance man Lee was here in 30 mins to fix it! He surprised me cause I didn't expect anyone to come on a Sunday!I love the grounds the lake and pool is my grandsons favorite at 12 yrs old fishing and swimming is his life plus there's plenty of room to play football or fly a kite! I love the geese,ducks an squirrels! I also see the owner on the property alomost daily. All In all compared to other places I've checked out lakeside apts. Staff has gone over and beyond what I expected for the amount of rent I pay! I definitely would recommend it !

                      This apartment complex is not safe at all. While the office staff are nice and helpful the neighborhood is horrible. My apartment got broken into and all together there were 3 attempts to break in I just happened to be home and scared them off the other two times. I called and told the office staff and they were no help at all but they were eager to get me locked into a lease though! Just be aware of the neighborhood.

                        Awful! Drug deals going down every other night, police always there. The noisiest place I have EVER lived. The office staff is rude and petty. Will be out of here ASAP.

                          The pictures are taken from my friend's apartment. She moved shortly after those pictures were taken because her place was engulfed by roaches that came from the unsanitary neighbors. So many behavior health people live there, they come knocking on doors, the police are always out here. If you have pets, its okay, but for those who don't, think again before moving here. The management do not care if you enjoy the peace and quiet of your own apartment because they let anyone bring in pets, and dump in your yard, throw trash everywhere, and they do not believe in properly fixing something or replacing it. It is always just a patch up till next time job. Neighbors are noisy and very disrespectful. I can't wait til my lease is up. This place is going downhill as another ------ project trailer park!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            Noisy. Slow to fix problems. Roaches, drugs, and drunks everywhere. They seriously need designated areas for pets to relieve themselves. They let them go where ever they want, including right in front of my patio. The electrical outlets are outdated and don't work. The managements gnash their teeth and get upset when you have to bring it to their attention as if you're inconveniencing them. The lawn people comes around 7 in the morning and does a terrible job and blows debris all over you patio.

                              My roommate and I lived in Valdosta for only a short amount of time. This apartment is what you pay for, though it was not the worst place to land it was not the best. It seemed they would move in anyone, and I can honestly say in the time we lived there I never met the land lord. The noise level was o.k. though loud music was normal after the office closed down. We never swam in the pool though it seemed clean our neighbors often got sick after swimming in it, though that may have just been how she was.We often heard several different stories from the tenants that came and went around us.The front office would say they were nice than we would hear their side of the story that they heard "Lakeside was easy to fool". I'm assuming This meant anyone could pull the wool over their eyes. Though the worst time of day was when the office closed, the noise level went up quickly. The walls are thin and often my roommate and i would joke about sharing the dinner conversation with our neighbors, as we heard everything they said.The grounds were kept presentable… See More>

                                I have lived at Lakeside Apartments for several months. I moved here from out-of-state and was not familiar with the area AT all. The complex manager gave me the phone numbers to ALL the utility companies I would need to contact, let me know what I would need for them and gave me the phone numbers and contact persons as well. The manager was VERY professional, helpful, accommodating and did all she could to make my move here super easy. They even came in on the weekend so I could move in. As far as the noise level goes, for the most part it is slim to none. When I have had a noise complaint, it was handled very promptly. The grounds are cleaned every morning. The grass and hedges are trimmed on a weekly basis. The laundry facility is clean and all the machines are in good working condition. The pool is very clean and they just bought new chairs to replace the old ones. The couple times I have seen bugs in my apartment; the maintenance crew came and sprayed that very same day. It s the south and bugs DO happen, but the manager will not tolerate them and… See More>

                                  This apartment is great! I have a two bedroom and one bath apartment that I pay $550.00 for and I love it. The front office staff is amazing I cant say enough good things about them. They have worked closely with my husband and I whenever we have had an issue. When we first moved in the apartment complex was a little loud but with in the year it has made a 180 when it comes to noise. It IS save to walk around the apartments at night there are lights and police patrolling. We also have a dog that they openly welcomed and they have even helped us make sure he feels fully at home, we love this place. MY husband I a truly love the apartments and we cant wait to renew our lease this month. If you have any further questions about any issues you have heard about the apartment complex, comment below and I will answer!

                                    This is the second time that I have lived here, when I lived here before we had went through 3 different managers before getting the one we have now. She was the manager when I moved away over 3 years ago and she is still the manger today, so I would say she is doing a good job. I have to say anytime I have a problem or complaint they always take care of it and maintenance have always been good and try to do the work as soon as possible. And when I saw a roach in my kitchen they came over and sprayed the same day. I think the management, office workers and maintenance are excellent and I would recommend this apartment building as a good place to live.

                                      Apartment complex is nice and affordable. Office staff very pleasant and helpful, especially the manager who cares about you and will help you whenever she can. Complex is pet friendly which I love, you can take long walks around the lake. I have only had a couple maintenance issues in 2 years but they fix problems fairly quickly and are very nice when they do it.. The grounds are picked up every morning which is nice and alot of complexes don't do. Complex is fairly quite and is a nice place to live.

                                        "Want Lakeside Living?" Better yet want to name your own pet roaches no pet deposit required!

                                        This place is ridiculous.... The roaches will carry you away and there is no monthly pest service. The only decent employee they had "-----" no longer works or lives there so garbage stays in the parking lots and everyone thinks they can do whatever. The property manager is a crock! She never follows through and on occasion ------------------------ steaming from ----------- or she's ------------------------.The only person that worked in the office there who was decent quit last year likely because she was tired of the office politics. Maintence is real winning...... ha.......when their not on the cell phone ------------ their busy stalking out the moveouts so they can take all the stuff out the apartments for their own general purpose. The owner however has no clue what is going on and when he does come around everyone jumps into action. He is probley the best thing going for the whole complex considering he is very nice to view and a very hard worker! Nights turn into a freaking block party and breakins are countless. This apartment complex could be a nice place I believe with better management and staff, but best left alone until this happens. Beautiful property… See More>

                                          The price is fine but you soon find out why, the paint job is horrible, the noise is horrible, it is fully of questionable people. They are supposed to do a background check but it is a LIE! they let anyone move in and when asked about it the response was, horrible. The other issue our family has is they NEVER spray for bug only the first month you move in after that they never stop by to do up keep. though for some reasn the lawn gets mowed alot. but, over all i would not trust my family to live here, i never felt safe and when i had to go out of town i paid a house sitter because of the break in and questionable people. DONT DO IT!

                                                Lakeside Apartments takes care of the military. Even though this is in town, they go out of their way to ensure us military members are taken care of. As long as you are respectful to your neighbors, they will bend over backwards to assist. I have lived here for two years. Close to the base and down town. Great fishing, excellent management, awesome maintenance.

                                                  I've lived at Lakeside Apartments for one year and have enjoyed it. My brother and I love fishing at the pond and feeding the ducks. We have run into nothing but nice neighbors. The management staff is very nice and recognize you when you walk into the office. The grounds are well kept. This place has lots of great incentives. Normally you get a move in special and you can get rewarded for referring people to live there. Lakeside is a good place to live and it's very nice for the price. I would continue living there if I didn't need a bigger place.
