Take what I say into consideration. Don't move here. Maintenance sucks you have to ask a bazillion times for things to get fixed and they still don't properly work after the fact. Pest control isn't even worth it. There are either cockroaches or bed bugs mainly… See More

Here at Grays Lake, we pay close attention to the concerns that our residents address to us directly because their satisfaction is our first priority. Unfortunately, we have no information here in our Management Office to support that incidents mentioned here were ever directly voiced to our team or to associate this review with a particular apartment home or resident. That, coupled with the anonymity of the review, made it virtually impossible to have directly addressed the concerns. We understand that resident opinions matter to apartment shoppers, and if you're looking for a new apartment home, we hope you won't allow an anonymous review to stand in the way of calling us now. Please allow our professional management team the privilege of showing you personally why Grays Lake is the perfect place for you to call home! Thanks, Grays Lake Apartments

The Management Team of Gray's Lake would like to respond with our sincere apology for your most recent experiences here. While we always intend for a change in management or policy to be trouble-free for our residents, within any environment of change, there are certainly opportunities to fall short of the excellence we strive for.

To others who may be reading this review while seeking a new apartment home, please know that the worthy concerns of this resident have been or are being actively addressed in order to not only meet and exceed their expectations once again, but also create a better resident experience for all who choose our community as their home. We hope you'll visit in person and give us the opportunity to show all that our community has to offer.
