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 money… 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 lived there.… See More

I lived here for almost a year and had to move out because of begbugs in my apartment. The wall is super thin, you can even hear your neighbor's conversation.

These apartments are a great price and good management. I have lived here for a couple years, in the past the management was bad. But since they have gotten new management i havent had a problem since.

Ok, so I currently live in these apartments. Right now, there is sewer water covering my floor. Let´s just say i would pay more to live somewhere else. Cheap rent, and cheap quality. Oh, and if you don´t like noise... don´t live here.
