This is the worst place I have ever lived. Maintenance takes forever to follow up on work orders, and when they do they half --- the job. People blast music and yell in the parking lot until 4 in the morning on most days. If… See More >

    I was thankful to find something close to school. Come to find out there is a really bad cockroach infestation and a slumlord landlord who is intent on keeping your security deposit illegally and nickel and diming you into oblivion. Don't bother. Don't throw your… See More >

        Noise, noise, noise! DO NOT MOVE HERE. The noise is terrible. I had to move here from out of state on an educated guess without seeing it first. Big mistake. The walls are paper thin. You think I'm exaggerating?… See More >

          I lived in a four bedroom apartment for 1 year, and a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 years so I'm quite familiar with the apartment. It's very cheap and within walking distance of Drake University-where I was a student- so that was why I… See More >

            I originally wrote a review for this place two years ago, about four months after I had moved in upon the request of the Manager at the time because all of the reviews online were negative. I had lived at Drake Park for about two years.… See More >

              Grounds are well kept and staff is very friendly. Apartments are very good price for the size. These apartments are very close to Drake University, it does tend to get a little noisy when things are going on at the school otherwise its a pretty… See More >

                      I'm in my apartment freezing to death right now. The heat has gone out in the building at least 3 times now this winter and it's only January. There are cockroaches everywhere making me never want to use the kitchen. Half of the windows don't… See More >

                            I currently live in the 1300 34th Street building of Drake Park, and I cannot wait to move out of this place after my lease expires. Despite all the pest treatments that occur 2-3 times monthly, there are still tons of roaches everywhere. The roaches… See More >
