      It's pretty decent given the price. I'm not looking to leave in a hurry. My first apartment had mold and the managers tried to play it off as "smoke damage from a candle". That resulted in parts of the ceiling being removed after I kept pushing… See More>

        Overall, pretty good. Staff responds promptly to any issues and is easy to communicate with. Could improve overall security of buildings. Locks on some of the exterior doors don't work and leave building unlocked. Also a camera on the dog park would help for multiple… See More>

          Love it so far. Location is close to downtown but not too close. Apartments are spacious and very affordable. Not having to pay for parking is a major plus. Staff is incredibly friendly and attentive. Major downside is the rendering plant presents a major quality… See More>

            Thank you for taking the time to review The Residences at River View, your feedback is important to us! All residents were notified in accordance with the rental agreement of the rule/policy change that took place regarding the surface lot available at The Residences at River View. Please know changes were made for the benefit of our lease holders, as we’ve implemented such changes after receiving substantial feedback from the community with regards to available parking. Parking stickers and enforced towing are the only means available to us at this time to deliver such a change. We do hope all our residents experience a positive change going forward with the added available reserved parking for residents. Thank you for choosing The Residences at River View as your home!

            I really enjoy living here. My neighbors are respectful, the buildings are well kept , and the amenities are nice. The parking lot can get congested, but it's still plenty of space- just have to park further. I've had no issues with management since I've… See More>

              Since I have lived here the building changed ownership twice. The apartment is nice looks wise but the walls are so thin you can hear everything. There is always dog poop outside the building that residents don't pick up sadly. I had issues I had… See More>
