Living at this apartment was the best decision I have made! The staff is helpful and always there to assist, even after hours. I often stop by the front desk to just talk to them and hang out. I have taken serious advantage of the coffee… See More

I'm just going to get into the nitty-gritty: There are multiple "Groves" in the country, most of them in the South, which explains why the water heaters are not big enough and give the last person a cold shower, there is no pool heater, and the… See More

When I first moved into the Grove, I knew they were college apartments so I didn't expect the best of the best, but I at least figured all of the amenities and college inspired lifestyle they promise would be worth the extra cost. I was definitely… See More

Where to start with what's wrong with the Grove? Overpriced for how cheap the apt is. Can hear neighbors if we are in adjacent rooms. garbage system is nasty and a joke-- one "compactor" for all residents, and it's always overflowing. Running out of hot water… See More

The Grove looks nice and has lots of amenities, but don't be fooled. The buildings are poor quality, they nickel and dime you after you sign a lease, and the students running the management desk don't know enough. Parking has been the biggest issue for me.… See More

Cheap construction. Poor management. Dirty apartments. This place is over-priced - watch out for the additional charges. Cost to sub-let is $500 , while lease indicates utilities are provided - you will be charged extra without knowing your usage. Clubhouse is seldom functional with the amenities… See More

Initally when The Grove was in development and signing leases before they were built it sound too good to be true. Unfortunately, it was. My boyfriend (and eventually myself began living with him as well) signed a lease with them in March 2011. The Grove grounds… See More

Really terrible maintenance services, it's unreliable and always a poor job done. They cleaned the drain and left the stuff that was clogging it for me to clean. They decided to sand a bedroom door that wouldn't shut and got saw dust all over my electronics… See More

The amenities are barely accessible. The parking lots don’t get cleared in the winter. If you get a package, it automatically goes to the office and they have weird hours so if you work, you will just never be able to pick up your package. The… See More

If you are going to rent/live at The Grove...DON'T. It seems fine until none of the accommodations advertised are open. Also beware of the bus system - the buses does not run on the weekends if you want to get anywhere. Another big thing is the… See More

This place is awful. They charge fees for everything and when you move out try to charge you hundreds of dollars for "damage" that isn't damage. Would never recommend this place because it sucks ---. Awful experience. Extreme waste of money and is advertised much better… See More

When I first moved in, I thought the grove was a great place to live. The staff seemed friendly, the area seemed clean, and the atmosphere seemed pleasant. However, I was very wrong. First, the "amazing" coffee machine they advertise has been broken for two years… See More

Love the Grove. A couple things I'd have changed is insulation, for one. North facing windows and outlets pour cold air in. Also the walks don't really get scooped very well in the winter. Oh! And the gate is slow, cheap, and --------. I probably would… See More

The one thing that The Grove in Ames, IA is good at, is advertising. They appeal to young college students with their fancy model apartment, free gifts, the pool, volleyball & basketball courts, and a sense of "community". In reality, these are disguises to hide the… See More
