Resident 2019 - 2021

I was always told that you get what you pay for, but this went beyond renting a cheap apartment and receiving cheap amenities. In the twenty months I resided at Oakwood Apartments the rent was raised twice, with little to no improvement of the property.… See More >

    More like 2.5 Stars if you have cats. Lived here for my first year at Iowa State as am over 30 graduate student. It isn't a bad complex, but it isn't great either, and at 750-850 there are better options available in Ames. Building is old… See More >

      Worst apartment I have ever rented. The entryways and hallways smell either of people smoking pot or old chemicals. There is always a urine smell by the doorways from all the animals. Despite it being a non-smoking area there are cigarrette disposal… See More >

        Oakwood Apartments are the BEST place I have lived in Ames. The on-site management is great! Marty is an excellent manager. He learns the names of the tenants and is always pleasant when you see him around the property. The building is super quiet. I… See More >

          I've been at Oakwood Apartments since 2012. I'm currently in my second year here and I plan to renew my lease again for a third. As a college student who takes schoolwork very seriously, I have been consistently amazed by the noise level here. The… See More >

            Management is incredible. Marty and Shari are about doing the right thing. The maintenance folks are nice, though through no fault of their own, the bathtub plumbing is terribly designed and will clog over time. However, when faced with issues that are fixable, the maintenance… See More >

                Don't do it

                Worst apartment experience ever. I only rented here because I did not have a car at the time, it's within walking distance of the ISU Research Park where I work, and Wessex doesn't allow pets. Parking: No complaints, really. There's always empty space, especially if you're… See More >

                  living in the slums...

                  First of all, don't let the concrete construction fool you. You can easily hear your neighbors and "everything" they do. To make things worse, many of the tennants are very loud and like to throw parties without consequence enforced. If you are offered a unit… See More >

                    2/20/2009

                    I picked this complex because of its proximity to the Veterinary college, its location away from main campus and main roads and their great pet policy. Internet, basic cable, water and garbage are included in the rent. Marty and Shari, the building's managers, are absolutely… See More >

                      I had lived at Oakwood for the past 3 years. I have lived in other complexes before, but I've never had the quality of service that I got from Gentry. The managers changed during the first year I started renting from them and… See More >

                        Mixed bag

                        This building is advertised as quiet concrete construction for serious people. Not so. The concrete construction does not block out the noise, and there are lots of drunk partying college kids in this building. One neighbor has a drum set he plays routinely, for example.… See More >

                          Picked this place on a whim, not my best decision, wouldn't be so bad if it cost a little less but it is definitely not worth what Im paying for it. The Parking is horrible, The management is fair at best and thing keep falling… See More >

Although the opinion may be warranted for where the author was staying, we believe the placement of the opinion is in error.

We DO NOT have 2 parking spots that are named "Guest Parking - 2 hour limit."<br><br>2) -All of our units have baseboards.<br><br>-Our closets are VERY spacious.<br><br>-We have 4 x central washer / dryer rooms with plenty of space for their doors to open fully. They are NOT located in the units themselves.<br><br>-All units HAVE a garbage disposals in them.<br><br>-All units HAVE a dishwasher in them.<br><br>-We DO NOT have a fraternity house next door.<br><br>If you are considering an apartment in Ames, stop by and see us.
