The apartment wasn't move-in ready when we got here and after almost four months, it's still not up to basic standards. Maintenance requests are closed without being filled and the office staff is unresponsive. The property is poorly built and poorly maintained which will cost… See More >

      Hello, we are disappointed to see this review because it does not demonstrate our commitment to service. Our records indicate that our team came to install the tiles a couple of times, but you needed to reschedule. We believe our team has been in touch with you and you are happy with the tile work in your apartment now. We regret the inconvenience you faced earlier on, but please know that your satisfaction is important to us and we will work toward turning this experience around. We have also shared your comments with our regional manager and will address some of the other issues you've mentioned. We'd like to investigate the referral credit, so please call our resident relations team at 402-391-7900 with reference code SBK111119 and they will be glad to assist you. We look forward to improving your experience.

            I wouldn't recommend a homeless man to stay here. There's been nothing but issues and it's not the apartment it's the people that stay around me, leasing office and the corporate office. I've had over 15 false complaints against me and the police called on… See More >

                      They overcharge you any chance they get. Very difficult to get any issues resolved. Apartments are nice and convenient location. Saddlebrook has had over 3 different maintenance crews in the last few years. You have to give 2 months notice to… See More >
