This apartment is nice and all but yet it has so many problems. Water Leakage problems with the toilets and most of all a lot of people touch your belongings if you are washing. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!

If your garbage disposal in the sink breaks, they will take it out and not replace it. Maintenance comes in to fix or update something and leave a mess. Hallways are full of people's shoes and management does not enforce any rules. It is very loud.… See More

It is reasonable but don't be surprised to find out that Hamlet takes it upon themselves to use your utilities after moving. Almost 4 months and I cant get Mid American to drop a bill of 1100.00 that I have proof I am not responsible or nor did I reside there upon management's knowledge. Good luck.
