I lived in this place years ago and I remember one summer when the South Skunk River overflowed and this apartment complex was submerged in flood water. Notice that there are no ground level apartments. See More

The place was nice, although you can feel the floors slopping downwards through the apartment. Everything was well kept and the managers were responsive. Although the "free" internet didn't ever work. See More

For prospective Ames renters steer clear of anything related to Shriver Rental Properties, especially South Meadows. Walls are paper thin and ceilings creak with every step of your upstairs neighbor. Windows either screech or do not open at all, insulation is poor (you'll wake up and… See More
