        If you are even a minute late on your rent, a family member dies or you end up in the hospital, they will still charge you late fees. The A/C units in the complex aren't capable of withstanding 100 degrees or above, which means they… See More>

                I lived in a 2nd-floor, updated two-bedroom, one-bath apartment. Unlike many of the other residents who've posted here, I didn't find the staff to be obnoxious or nagging, but I also never really had much interaction with the people in the office, outside of paying… See More>

                  A lot of people have a lot of bad things to say about Brookside. It wasn't my first choice. I had friends that lived there in college and I remembered some drug dealer who did his "business" there. That was back in 2006. My husband… See More>

                    Do not rent from these people!!! I lived in Brookside Apartments for a year and a half. Over the summer our apartment flooded due to the air conditioner drain being covered up by the hot water heater. It had been placed over the… See More>

                      I lived at Brookside for a year. Worst year of my life because the upstairs neighbors had a dog that constantly would bark and scrape at the door for hours on end. I called the office several times and was first told they didn't have… See More>

                          Brookside apartments... Well I lived there for 1(one) year. And it was a complete nightmare. I saw cops responding the the apartment complexes atleast 3 times a week.

                            avoid Brookside Manor. There is a lady in the office that is terribly rude. The apartments are old and noisy. The walls are paper thin and every noise is heard. They allow people with loud stereos to sit outside in the parking lot at all… See More>

                              What really ruined the experience for me

                              I lived in a pretty nice apartment with classy hard-wood floors and decent kitchen appliances. The apartment itself was nice enough, minus the occasional normal problem. Actually living there was fine and the rent was quite fair, but what really ruined it for my roommates… See More>

                                Brookside wouldn't have been that bad if the staff of bored, obnoxious women didn't try to steal your money. My roommate an I would vigilantly pay our rent every month, yet twice they tried to charge us a late fee, and one time even had… See More>

                                  Hopefully I don't regret writing good things about Brookside; but so far it's been a nice little place to live. 1. I moved to Carbondale from a small town so I was worried about safety, well this area seems to be one of the safer… See More>

                                    These apartments are not worth the price that you'll pay. Management will come up with any excuse to charge you. All three of us living in the apartment are non-smokers and they attempted to charge us $25 bucks for throwing cigarette butts off the balcony.… See More>

                                      888 bucks a month, all utilities Included, three bedroom, no way! What a deal right? Wrong!

                                          I lived in Brookside for a year in a single bedroom apartment. Over all the place isn't awful but I wouldn't live there again. $670 per month, which included "everything," was a little too much for the rent, basic cable, trash dumpster down the… See More>

                                              I didn't really have any problems here. Any maintnence call would be handled very quickly. The ladies in the office were very nice. There was never a wait for tanning or laundry. The only cons were---yes, I got roaches--but only because--my roommate was very sloppy.… See More>

Our spacious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments offer you all the comforts of home at a price you can afford with all utilities included in your rent.
